The Chevron Newspaper, Collapsing Consciously & Prison for Internet Trolling

On this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin remarks on a Richmond, California newspaper sponsored by Chevron, calling out the absurd propaganda about the oil industry featured in the publication. Abby then talks about the crackdown on individuals who choose to live ‘Off the Grid’ citing a examples such as a man in Oregon who faced jail-time for collecting rainwater and a Florida woman who was forced to re-connect to the state’s electrical grid. Abby then speaks with Carolyn Baker, Author of ‘Collapsing Consciously’ about confronting our emotions concerning the inevitable collapse of industrial civilization, and what actions we can take to address those fears. Abby then talks about two Supreme Court cases involving the Affordable Care Act’s mandate that private companies offer free access to birth control, and the absurd fight against providing this coverage due to religious corporate personhood. BTS wraps up the show with an interview with attorney Tor Ekland, and journalist, Nicole Powers, discussing the case of internet hacker, Andrew Auernheimer, better known under the pseudonym ‘Weev’, who received a 41 month prison sentence after finding a flaw in AT&T’s public server.

    The lady takes herself too seriously, wears too much make-up and generally overdoes the Rachel Maddow imitation thing. But her news and interviews are far from being all boring. Carolyn Baker here, for example, has some interesting things to say, even if she’s been writing and saying them for some time. She may be overplaying the spiritual/empathy/non-competitive card vis-à-vis what’s likely to happen, but the alternative is ugly enough that, if this approach began to gain more traction, I wouldn’t see it as a negative development.
