"This could be the kind of social justice moment that many of us have been waiting for," says Bill Fletcher, Jr. of the Center for Labor Renewal. He points out that the revolutions in Egypt and Tunisia are not just spreading to Libya, locked in a deadly struggle with its own dictator, but in Ohio, Wisconsin, and around the US. "People are picking up on the energy and the audacity of the democratic revolt," he notes. Bill joins Laura in studio to discuss the fight in Libya, the connections to labor uprisings in Wisconsin, Ohio, and Indiana, and why progressives have an opportunity now that can't be let slide.

I think this photograph does a wonderful job of disrupting the idea that the U.S. has it all figured out and our only job is to support other countries in ascending to similar political perfection.  Americans had been watching the protests in Egypt, most cheering on the democratization, as if we were watching them become more like us.  But the effort to criminalize union activity in Wisconsin suggests that our own democracy is quite fragile.  And when Egyptians can watch American protests, cheer on our workers’ movements, and donate to our organizing efforts, then it becomes clear that a hierarchical “west and the rest” binary fails to describe reality.

.... Investigative Kritik als aussterbendes Handwerk - .... Schleichwerbeskandale im öffentlich-rechtlichen Rundfunk oder Stasi-Verstrickungen, all das wird hierzulande nach der gleichen Methode abgefertigt: Mittleres juristisches Scharmützel und währenddessen und danach: Klappe halten ... Aufklärung ist kein Wert an sich mehr und investigative Kritik ein aussterbendes Handwerk, dem nur noch das Freiluftmuseum fehlt. Nie erfolgt auf einen Skandal oder eine Krise eine Reaktion von einiger Anmut oder gar Originalität. Nie wird mehr zugestanden, als bekannt ist, nie wird das eigene Handeln in eine Geschichte gekleidet und der Öffentlichkeit dargestellt. - Sich bedeckt zu halten, sichert offensichtlich mehr Vorteile als die offene Auseinandersetzung oder gar das umfassende Geständnis. ...."
