These questions have also been raised by previous generations of labor, farmer, socialist, anarchist, and populist protestors and critics: Who owns and rules America beyond the pretense of democratic popular governance? Why does it matter that the nation’s economy, society, culture, and politics are torn by stark class disparities and a concentration of wealth in the hands of a privileged few? What is the price of that savage inequality? And what can “we the people” do about it in defense of democracy, a livable natural environment, and the common good of all? Along the way, this book sharpens readers’ sense of who the US oligarchy are; how their fortunes have changed over the course of American history; how they live and think; and how to detect and de-cloak them.” Chat with author Paul Street and host Lance Selfa, 5pm ET, 2pm PT.

Shot in HD over a 2-year period, “Spark” intimately follows the students inside the classroom and out; from their homes in America to family homes abroad; from practice rooms to stages. It will serve as an entertaining and educational reminder of the power and importance music plays in all of our lives.” Join host Jane Hamsher and meet Producer Ben Niles. Monday, 8pm ET, 5pm PT.
