12-1:30 Rick Jarow, "The Ultimate Anti-Career Guide"
The Inner Path to Finding Your Work i the World'




According to the perennial wisdom teachings, your vocation is not a means of survival in the world—it is a pure expression of your life force. Vocation arises, not as a response to external forces, but authentically from within your own body.

To the modern mind, this approach to work sounds radical. But for more than 3,000 years, sacred traditions in the East and West have allowed vocation to serve as a platform for spiritual and material growth. The Ultimate Anti-Career Guide is the first audio curriculum that adapts this classic approach to right livelihood to the challenges unique to our place and time.

Based on the national anti-career workshops taught by Dr. Rick Jarow since 1988, this is the same life-changing program that has helped thousands of frustrated job-seekers open to their intuition, transform their values into action, and answer their true calling—instead of settling for a paycheck.

Traditional career strategies are simply reactions to the job market, Dr. Jarow begins—for example, matching an inventory of skills with the want ads. An anticareer is a manifestation of the unique blueprint for your destiny encoded in your body since birth. The key to this revolutionary approach is your body's chakra system, the seven centers that govern the free flow of prana, or life force, through your body. Through a program of powerful meditations, you gain direct access to your chakras, clearing and aligning them with the energetic forces that make everything in life possible.

You don't have to go out looking for a job, Dr. Jarow says. The job you were born to do will unfold in time, like a tree from a seed, as you let go of self-limiting concepts and open to the energy of creation—with The Ultimate Anti-Career Guide.




Session 1 of 12: Your Life's Work

Holistic career building concepts. Eastern and Western Laws of Manifestation. Representative lives. Finding and acknowledging mentors. The concept of 'Anti-Career' counseling. The Western genius for action.

Session 2: Wheels of Consciousness


'Who is behind you?' Vocational archetypes. The need to move from productivity to creativity. The chakra system and the vocational issues inherent in each chakra. An historical hourney of consciousness through the chakras.




Rick Jarow is a professor of religious studies in Vassar College, a former Melon Fellow at Columbia University and a practicing career counselor. His popular Anti-Career Workshops, which he has taught internationally, are based on years of research and practice encompassing both Eastern and Western Traditions. He is the author of 'In Search of the Sacred' and 'Creating the Work You Love.'

1:30-2:30 Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz "An Indigenous Economic Model"
Program #ORTR002. Recorded in San Luis Obispo, CA on February 02, 2017.

The existing economic system in most countries is a kind of state capitalism. It produces enormous inequalities. Its extraction practices are environmentally destructive. Perhaps indigenous models provide a viable alternative. Chief Seattle was a Susquamish chief in what is now Washington State. He reportedly made these observations in an 1854 letter to U.S. President Pierce: “How can you buy or sell the sky? the land? The idea is strange to us. If we do not own the freshness of the air and the sparkle of the water, how can you buy them? Every part of the earth is sacred to my people. Every shining pine needle, every sandy shore, every mist in the dark woods, every meadow, every humming insect.” And he warned: “Continue to contaminate your bed, and you will one night suffocate in your own waste.”


Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz grew up in rural Oklahoma, the daughter of a tenant farmer and part-Indian mother. She has been active in the indigenous movement for more than four decades and is known for her commitment to social justice issues. She is an award-winning scholar and author of such books as An Indigenous Peoples’ History of the United States, All the Real Indians Died Off and Loaded: A Disarming History of the Second Amendment. She is the recipient of the Cultural Freedom Prize for Lifetime Achievement from the Lannan Foundation. From Alternative Radio, 1 (800) 444-1977, www.alternativeradio.org

12:30-1:30 James Forman, Jr., "Crime and Punishment in Black America"
Program #FORJ001. Recorded in Chicago, IL on January 17, 2018.


Critics of the U.S. criminal justice system such as Michelle Alexander and Bryan Stevenson have assailed the rise of mass incarceration with its disproportionate impact on people of color. The war on crime that began in the 1970s was supported by many African American leaders in the nation’s urban centers. The first substantial cohort of black mayors, judges, and police chiefs took office amid a surge in crime and drug addiction. Many prominent black officials, including federal prosecutor Eric Holder, feared that the gains of the civil rights movement were being undermined by lawlessness. They thus embraced tough-on-crime measures, including mandatory sentencing and aggressive police tactics and what Angela Davis called, the prison-industrial complex. In the face of skyrocketing murder rates and the proliferation of open-air drug markets, African-American officials and community leaders believed they had no choice. But the policies they adopted would have devastating consequences for residents of poor black neighborhoods.


James Forman Jr. is a Professor of Law at Yale Law School. and was a law clerk for Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor. After clerking, he joined the Public Defender Service in Washington, D.C., where for six years he represented both juveniles and adults charged with crimes. During his time as a public defender, he became frustrated with the lack of education and job training opportunities for his clients. He co-founded the Maya Angelou Public Charter School, an alternative school for school dropouts and youth who had previously been arrested. His articles appear in The New York Times, The Atlantic and other publications. He is the author of Locking Up Our Own: Crime and Punishment in Black America.

12-1 Dave Emory, "For the Record #992: Hindutva Fascism, Part 5: Political and Historical Context (Connecting the Dots)


This program concludes our FTR series on Hindutva fascism (Hindu nationalist fascism). In previous programs, we highlighted key features of the governance of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, whose BJP is a political front for the RSS. Formed along the lines of Mussolini’s Blackshirts in 1925, the RSS was the organization that assassinated Mahatma Gandhi. (We have discussed Modi, the RSS and the BJP in numerous broadcasts, including FTR #’s 795, 889, 441, 442, 445, 988 and 989, 990, 991.)



In past discussions of the RSS and BJP, we have noted the following:




1.–Modi’s political fortunes were boosted with support and apparent financing from Pierre Omidyar, who also helped finance the rise of the OUN/B fascist successor organizatios in Ukraine.
2.–Modi and his BJP are viewed with great favor by Breitbart kingpin, former Trump campaign manager and adviser Steve Bannon. A number of Trump’s business associates in India are associated with the BJP.
3.–Bernie Sanders’ prospective Vice-Presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard helped arrange the details for Modi’s American visit and is networked with the RSS.
4.–The above-mentioned Tulsi Gabbard is a member of the Hare Krishna cult, as is her husband, her in-laws, her parents and her Congressional staff.
5.–Gabbard is highly regarded by Modi admirer Steve Bannon as well.
6.–Gabbard was seriously considered for a cabinet position by Team Trump.
7.–Under Modi, anti-Muslim violence has dramatically accelerated, journalistic and civil free speech has been attenuated, opponents of the government have faced various forms of retaliation and oppression, journalists and activists critical of Modi/BJP/RSS have been murdered, a virulently anti-Muslim cleric has been appointed head of Uttar Pradesh (India’s largest province), voting machines have apparently been tampered with, and Indians have expressed positive feelings about martial law. BJP members have celebrated Gandhi’s murder...







Program Highlights Include:

1.–The Omidyar-owned Honololu Civil Beat’s curious cover-up of Tulsi Gabbard’s participation in the Hindutva fascist Hare Krishna cult.
2.–The participation of Indian soldiers in the Wehrmacht and Waffen SS during World War II.
3.–Tulsi Gabbard’s co-sponsorship of a bill that would label opponents of Ukraine’s entrance into the EU as “terrorists.”
4.–Omidyar journalistic protege Glenn Greenwald had Andrew “Weev” Auerenheimer at his party celebrating Greenwald and Laura Poitras’s receipt of the prestigious Polk Award. Weev’s name has been bandied about in connection with the [alleged] hacking of DNC e-mails. We note that Weev is apparently resident in Ukraine. ” . . . . [GOP operative Peter] Smith also reached out to “Guccifer 2.0”—an alias the U.S. intelligence community has linked to Russian state hackers—and was advised to seek the help of a white nationalist hacker who lives in Ukraine. . . . [Alt-Right media figure Charles] Johnson said he also suggested that Smith get in touch with Andrew Auerenheimer, a hacker who goes by the alias ‘Weev’ and has collaborated with Johnson in the past. . . .”

12-12:30 Dan Ellsberg "The Doomsday Machine" Part 1
'Confessions of a Nuclear War Planner'


Daniel Ellsberg of Pentagon Papers fame has another revelation to make. In 1961 he consulted for the Department of Defense and the White House and drafted Secretary Robert McNamara's plans for nuclear war.

In 1969 Ellsberg copied the top secret documents along with those pertaining to the war on Vietnam. Ellsberg's attempts to publish the nuclear war papers were stymied by the loss of his copies and the refusal by 17 publishers who told him that nobody was interested in a book about nuclear war. The Doomsday Machine was finally published in December 2017.
Now, in the context of Trump's threats to North Korea, the question of what it means for the rest of the world if one or more of todays super powerful nuclear weapons were to be used is rising to top priority. Convincing evidence shows that even a small nuclear exchange will instantly kill millions and a larger exchange would endanger the rest of the hemisphere by nuclear winter.
Ellsberg spoke at Town Hall in Seattle on January 9, 2018. He was recorded by Mike McCormick of Talking Stick TV and KEXP radio. From TUC Radio 1 (707) 463-2654, www.tucradio.org



12:30-1 Daniel Ellsberg "The Doomsday Machine" Part 2 'Confessions of a Nuclear War Planner'


In 1969 Daniel Ellsberg secretly copied the plans for the United States - Vietnam Relations, 1945-1967, later to be published as the Pentagon Papers. What was not known widely until late 2017 is that Ellsberg also copied the top secret plans for nuclear war that he consulted on for the Department of Defense and drafted for Secretary Robert McNamara.

Some of these papers, along with his first person report of the history of nuclear war planning, have now finally been published to high acclaim. The publication comes at an extraordinarily auspicious and dangerous time as nuclear tensions are mounting and the US president is challenging North Korea.
This program begins with two excerpts from the Nobel Awards in Oslo. ICAN, The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons, received the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of their efforts "to draw attention to the catastrophic humanitarian consequences of any use of nuclear weapons" and their "ground-breaking efforts to achieve a treaty-based prohibition of such weapons".
ICAN is a coalition of non-governmental organizations in 100 countries. They are promoting the implementation of the United Nations Nuclear Weapon Ban Treaty. This landmark global agreement was voted on in New York City on July 7, 2017.
Daniel Ellsberg is currently on tour for his most recent book - The Doomsday Machine. Even though the book is in large measure a memoir Ellsberg is always being asked questions about the nuclear threats of the day, North Korea and President Trump's public announcements about fire, fury and total destruction.
Ellsberg spoke at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco on December 12, 2017. He was being interviewed by Dr. Gloria Duffy, President and CEO of the Club.
Ellsberg shows that the legacy of this most dangerous arms buildup in the history of civilization-and its proposed renewal under the Trump administration-threatens our very survival. No other insider with high-level access has written so candidly of the nuclear strategy of the late Eisenhower and early Kennedy years, and nothing has fundamentally changed since that era.

12-1 Dave Emory, "For the Record #991 - Hindutva Fascism, Part 4: The Hare Krishna Cult"



KEY POINTS OF INTEREST/ANALYSIS INCLUDE:

1.-Hare Krishna founder and chief guru Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada provided commentary on Hindu religious text ". . . . and often suggested that they had not actually been written by himself, but that God, Krishna, had revealed them to him. . . ." This was in order to " . . . .underline the absolute position, superhuman qualities, and overall importance of the guru. [Basically, "guru" as "fuhrer"-D.E.] . . . ."
2.-Bhaktivedanta Swami was fundamentally opposed to democracy. "So monarchy or dictatorship is welcome. . . . Personally, I like this position, dictatorship. Personally, I like this."
3.-Bhaktivedanta Swami felt that Hinduism was in a "fallen state" and that only his discipline/teachings could restore it to its proper place. In our discussions with Peter Levenda, we have noted that fascism manifests a longing for a bygone time-one that never really existed.
4.-Fascist philosophies frequently invoke a by-gone, mythical "golden age," which the fascist cadre in question will restore, after the corrupting forces have been neutralized. " . . . . He too believed that in bygone ages a divine and scientific social system had existed in India, and like Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati, he too founded a movement whose express mission was to reestablish what he often referred to as the "perfectional form of human civilization," varnashram dharma. . . ." Note that "foreigners" or what would be termed in our society today "immigrants," "migrants," "Mexicans," or "Muslims" are blamed for this degeneration. " . . . . . . . . Indian civilization on the basis of the four varnas and ashrams deteriorated because of her dependency on foreigners, or those who did not follow the civilization of varnasham. . . ."
5.-Bhaktivedanta Swami valued the traditional position of the Kshatriya warrior caste, to which the Nazi SS considered themselves as successors, according to Kevin Coogan's brilliant analysis (in Dreamer of the Day: Francis Parker Yockey and the Postwar Fascist International.) ". . . . the kshatriyas should be taught how to fight also. There will be military training. There will be training how to kill. Kshatriya students in the ISKCON varnashram college were to practice killing: 'Just like Kshatriyas, they have to learn how to kill.' . . . . There is no single instance where Bhaktivedanta Swami speaks about kshatriya training without mentioning killing. . . . 'Learn to kill. No nonviolence. Learn to kill. Here also, as soon you'll find, the Kshatriya, a thief, a rogue, unwanted element in the society, kill him. That's all. Finish. Kill him. Bas. Finished. . . ." It is not that because the Kshatriyas were killing by bows and arrows formerly you have to continue that. That is another foolishness. If you have got . . . If you can kill easily by guns, take that gun. All the royal princes were trained up how to kill. . . . A Kshatriya, he is expert in the military science, how to kill. So the killing art is there. You cannot make it null and void by advocating nonviolence. No, That is required. Violence is also a part of the society. . . ."
6.-Hare Krishna cult member Tulsi Gabbard's political vector may be evaluated against the background of Bhaktivedanta Swami's prognostication that the Hare Krishna cult could infiltrate and take over a key political party and/or government in a democracy. Recall that he viewed democracy with utmost contempt. " . . . . Bhaktivedanta also thought that he and his movement could take over some government and rule some part of the world: 'However in Kali-yuga, democratic government can be captured by Krishna conscious people. If this can be done, the general populace can be made very happy.' . . . ."

12-1:30 Rick Jarow, "The Yoga of Work" Part 2 of 2 (conclusion)'Strategies for Right Livelihood from the World's Wisdom Traditions'



Why do you work? What motivates you? Outside of our cultural perspective, and beyond our market economy, these questions have many answers. On 'The Yoga of Work,' Dr. Rick Jarow, founder of the national anti career workshops, immerses you in a life-changing process for finding work that is your authentic personal expression and contribution to the world.



Dr. Jarow, a Fulbright scholar and authority on career and spirituality, asks the hard questions about work that we all need to answer. Am I afraid to quit my job? Is it my true calling, or a way to pay the bills? am I really seeking my 'dream job' or is there something else missing from my life? Looking to eight other world cultures, he shares the most useful teachings about work and spirit from India, Native America, China, Africa, and other regions of the world. With special meditations, Dr. Jarow helps you open to the meaningful work you are supposed to do, where you are supposed to do it. With this destination comes the inner freedom that is the true heart of right livelihood.



In the 'Baghdad Gita,' sometimes called the 'gospel' of India, yoga is described as 'skill in action.' 'The Yoga of Work' is the first cross-cultural guide to putting your values, skills, and spirit to work for the things you believe in most.



Rick Jarow is a professor of history of religious studies at Vassar College, a former Mellon Fellow in the Humanities in Columbia University and a practicing career consultant. His popular anti career workshop, which has internationally, is based on years of research and practice with lineage holders in both Eastern and Western wisdom traditions. Dr. Jarow is the author of 'In Search of the Sacred: A Pilgrimage to Holy Places,' and 'Creating the Work You Love: Courage, Commitment, and Career' and 'Alchemy of Abundance: Using the Energy of Desire to Manifest Your Highest Vision, Power, and Purpose.'

Dr. Michael Osterholm is a professor and director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota. He is the author of the 2017 book, “Deadliest Enemy: Our War Against Killer Germs” in which he not only details the most pressing infectious disease threats of our day but lays out a nine-point strategy on how to address them, with preventing a global flu pandemic at the top of the list. His recent op-ed in the New York Times is entitled “We’re not Ready For a Flu Pandemic.”



“I have raised from the beginning on the public health budget: this is about national security. Whether a bomb comes lands somewhere in our country or bullets kill our troops or land mines, you know, infectious agents are much more efficient at it and can do it overnight. And we see that. And in a sense this is about national security… We need a moonshot approach on this flu vaccine, because again, the cost of even one pandemic will be so substantial any investment we make on this will be pennies on the dollar in savings.” Dr. Michael Osterholm, director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota.



Brian Carome is the executive director of Street Sense, whose mission it is to end homelessness in Washington DC by providing jobs, training and other services to the area’s homeless population. Previously he served as Executive Director at Housing Opportunities for Women, Project Northstar and A-SPAN. Additionally, he worked at New Hope Housing, Sasha Bruce Youthwork, the Washington Legal Clinic for the Homeless, and the Father McKenna Center.



“We kind of have a two-fold mission. One is we provide both opportunities for employment and income earning opportunities to men and women, who at some point in their life have experienced homelessness. We also provide them with platforms for self-expression, which I think many of us just take for granted. But these are folks who are far too often left out of the conversation when it comes to public policy in our country. The second half of our mission is to educate the public, to give them a first hand look at the issue of homelessness, who it’s affecting, how it’s affecting them, and shining some lights on solutions as well.” Brian Carome, Executive Director of Street Sense Media.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT, FEBRUARY 7
Fund Drive Schedule


12-1 Dave Emory, "For the Record #988 - Hindutva Fascism, Part 2: The Assassination of Mahatma Gandhi, Part 2



The disturbing facts concerning Mahatma Gandhi's assassination at the hands of the RSS and its ideological leader V.D. Savarkar was related by James Douglass in "Gandhi and the Unspeakable". (Douglass is also the author of JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters--a book we have used on numerous occasions.)

In this program we set forth key features of the assassination of Gandhi including:

1.-The Hindutva (Hindu nationalist) fascist ideology of the RSS, the organization inspired by, and presided over, by V.D.Savarkar,which--along with its ideological leader--were deeply involved with Gandhi's murder.
2.-The RSS's organizational and ideological affinity with Mussolini's Blackshirts.
3.-The organization's (and Savarkar's) cooperation with the British, whom Savarkar saw as potential partners in an "Aryan Empire."
4.-The close relationship between the RSS and the Hindu Mahasabha, a paramilitary organization that participated in the British colonial military during World War II and subsequently assumed prominence in the fledgling Indian national security establishment.
5.-The laxity of Indian police officials in pursuing an investigation into Gandhi's killers following an earlier attempt at slaying the Mahatma.
6.-The apparent sympathy of complicit Indian security officials, many of whom had affinity with the RSS and Hindu Mahasabha.
7.-The apparent complicity of Indian Prime Minister Nehru and Home Minister Patel in the killings--failing to enact basic, formalized security procedures that would have protected Gandhi.
8.-The complicity of the Indian court trying Gandhi's killers in obscuring the fundamental participation of Savarkar in the assassination conspiracy.
9.-The court's acquiescence in allowing Gandhi's self-confessed assassin Nathuram Godse (Savarkar's personal secretary) to read a nine-hour condemnation of Gandhi and implicit defense of the Mahatma's murder.
10.-The subsequent rehabilitation of Savarkar's political reputation after the BJP (a political cat's paw for the RSS) assumed power in India.
11.-The Orwellian re-write of Indian text books to omit any reference to the Hindutva fascist role in Gandhi's killing.

The Ralph Nader Radio Hour
Initially heard on KPFK Saturdays, 10am
http://www.ralphnaderradiohour.com




Richard Wolff, "Cutting Corporate Taxes"

Corporations are riding high in the saddle. With their friends in Washington they are raking it in. That certainly is the case with the tax law passed by Congress in late 2017. If you look at the details it is warmed over trickle-down economics. While most workers will get crumbs, the big winners will be corporations. And along the way, the deficit will go way up. Corporate tax contributions to the federal budget has been declining for decades and this bill will make it worse. The right-wing plan seems clear: Cut taxes on corporations and then reduce and eliminate programs like Social Security, food stamps, Medicare and Medicaid because there is no money. As the saying goes, the rich have gotten richer and the poor poorer. Inequality has soared into the stratosphere. To bring it down we need a concerted grassroots movement.

Richard Wolff is Professor of Economics Emeritus at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst and currently a visiting professor at the New School in New York. The New York Times calls him “America’s most prominent Marxist economist.” He is the author of numerous books including 'Democracy at Work' and 'Occupy the Economy' with David Barsamian.
