Mondo Diablo Episode 289: Lassie's Christmas

When I was hunting for something to chop up for you, I realized I hadn't really, truly included a depressing Christmas Special for you yet, so here it is. Every year that "Lassie" was on, there was a depressing Christmas special episode. Some more depressing than others. I assure you, however, that Lassie's getting injured is not part of this particular episode. This one involved rather the true spirit of Christmas, which I liked. I could have done without the spiritual message, but what do you expect from a 1960 episode? Anyway, it included some good, old-fashioned mixing with the classes--among the children, the way Christmas season was intended. The adults only mixed in charitable and employee/employer, ruler/rulee ways, which is also to be expected. Now that I think of it, in oldy tymes, children were not seen as the higher classes, and really not seen as children at all, but they were lumped in with the servant class (Am I getting to be quite the commie, though?) So this is definitely a good, old-fashioned Christmas story that's as depressing and as relieving of middle-class guilt as any Christmas story there was, hein?

Third Paradigm: 3P-060 The Bipolar Bipartisan: Supporting Need and Greed

This episode looks at bipartisanship as a compromise between two confusions. We examine critical thinking and how it’s been bred out, generation by generation, defeating us through our own unexamined contradictions. We also look at that strange hybrid of capitalism and socialism, the consumer democracy. And we explore how Republicans and Democrats differ on a survey of happiness. Reads the poems “Begin” by Rumi, “Half-Life” by Stephen Levine, “Love Letters” by Ikkyu, and “Act Serious” by Tukaram. Discusses Obama’s first-strike nuclear option towards Iran as a “spare the nuclear rod and spoil the colony” policy, and quotes IPS and Diane Rehm on the topic. Puzzles over the assassination order of the US-born Muslim cleric in Yemen. Compares the capitalist creed cited by pilot Joseph Stack to the socialist creed, which is then critiqued by Ivan Illich. Ends with Bruce Gagnon on where both parties agree.
