THIS WEEK ON WAKING UP ORWELL


This week we’re back to our regular news magazine reporting and commentary format.

SPECIAL GUEST: Judith McGeary of Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance analyzes the prospective defeat of National Animal ID (NAIS), associated with animal chipping mandates.

THIS WEEK’S DIY GOVERNMENT: Downsize D.C., proud sponsor to comprehensively repeal the Real ID Act so there is nothing left for Joe Lieberman to cling to, supplements FARFA’s work with an online campaign.

BUZZWORD: “Intervention” preferred to “revolution”.

FEATURED GUEST: Filmmaker Tim Jackson discusses the history and art of the political prank exhibited in his film Radical Jesters. Politics tends to be rough and intense waters, which makes it prime real estate for the comic and satirical humorist. Much of dissent in the form of direct action has become criminalized. (i.e. It’s illegal to stop traffic by stepping into the streets during business hours with intent to assemble for purposes of demonstrated protest.) The last bastion of dissent is to get really creative using what you know, who you are and what you have on hand.
