The Sleep Of Reason

B I L L Y  B R A G G

Don’t Be A Sucker

Produced by the US War Department in 1947, this short educational film conveys the evils of fascism.

“I’ve heard this kind of talk before, but I never expected to hear it in America.”

NAZI PUNKS FUCK OFF

Google Celebrates Hip Hop

Given what’s going on in the world right now, we could all use a fun and uplifting distraction like today’s Google Doodle:

44th Anniversary of the Birth of Hip Hop

Save Net Neutrality

BATTLE FOR THE NET

FIGHT FOR THE FUTURE

Be The Person Your Dog Thinks You Are

A message of compassion featuring Nick Cave and Iggy Pop:

Animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, use for entertainment, or abuse in any other way.

The Decline Of Western Civilization

No, this post isn’t about Penelope Spheeris’ documentary trilogy devoted to punk and metal (although those films are recommended viewing). Rather, it’s in answer to recent rhetoric questioning “whether the West has the will to survive.”

The greatest threats to Western civilization and democracy aren’t North Korea, Russia, terrorism, government bureaucracy, or the mainstream news media.

The greatest threats to Western civilization and democracy are authoritarian demagogues, extremist political ideology, corrupt corporations, economic inequality, social injustice, voting rights restrictions, and mass apathy.

Produced by Encyclopedia Britannica in 1946, this short educational film defines the dangers of despotism. Despite the film’s age, the information presented is more relevant now than ever.

“Avoid the comfortable idea that the mere form of government can of itself safeguard a nation against despotism.”
