Hello, out there! For those who come across this blog by accident, KPFA is the Berkeley, California-based FM radio station of the Pacific Foundation.
That said, the purpose of this blog is the same as that of my two campaigns for the KPFA Local Station Board, which was and is to make KPFA and Pacifica more of a service to the struggle against the imperialist United States ruling class and its allies, including Zionism. Comments are only welcome if they share that objective. Those who want to argue in favor of capitalism and imperialism, or defend the elites of the United States and Israel, can go elsewhere! The same goes for those who want to invoke some god or other (Bacchus/Dionysus, Eros, Aphrodite, et al. excepted!) in support of their politics.
One of the main practical functions of this blog will be to show how much allegedly alternative news and public affairs programming on KPFA actually serves that ruling class both by its selection of what counstitutes NEWS and by the language it uses. But that will be clarified in my upcoming posts.
