My latest appearance on “Facts on the Ground,” “On the twin plagues of U.S. militarism and empire: A conversation with Danny Sjursen:”
Check out a really solid discussion with Misty and Jesse that runs from cultural militarism, to armed forces insularity, to pageantry patriotism, to the incoming Biden bunch national security squad. We even throw in a dash of the “nostalgic” — talking “Be All You Can Be” 1980s Army commercials, George Carlin, Kurt Vonnegut, and what we can learn from the American volunteers of the Abraham Lincoln Brigade in the Spanish Civil War.
“Fortress on a Hill” hosts Danny Sjursen, Chris “Henri” Henriksen, and John Kerry speak with Chris Lombardi, editor at Democratic Left Online. She stops by the podcast to discuss her new book “I Ain’t Marching Anymore: Dissenters, Deserters, and Objectors to America’s Wars”. It’s an amazing history of military dissenters, conscientious objectors, and their hard, but determined path of dissent.
