Sacrifice Culture

Canadian and American Remembrance Day and Memorial Day celebrations abound in 2009 with myths and messages from a culture in which war is glorified and soldiers are presented as means of sacrifice. Voices from this week’s show include: a syndicated JTA interview with Sholem Keller – a Jewish veteran of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, famous comedian Jackie Mason’s Memorial Day address, Bob Dylan’s “Masters of War” and analysis from the radio613 collective.
