David Swanson is a political activist, journalist, and author, whose latest book, ‘War is a Lie’ puts to the lie the underpinnings of the multi-generational state of conflict ruling world events for at least the last century. While ‘War is a Lie’ serves as stark reminder of our collective abrogation of morality and the duties necessary to maintain any semblance of civilization, David Swanson’s previous book, ‘Daybreak: Undoing the Imperial Presidency and Forming a More Perfect Union’ provides the contempory context of the nightmare new world order perpetual war has engendered.

And; Jon Elmer is a freelance photojournalist who lives in and reports from Palestine. Over the near decade past, Jon has informed this program of the daily realities faced by those living under Israeli occupation from that occupation’s heart. Jon Elmer and the stones recently turned in Palestine in the second half.
And; Victoria Street Newz publisher and CFUV broadcaster, Janine Bandcroft will join us at the bottom of the hour to bring us up to speed with what’s current on Victoria’s streetz and beyond; but first, David Swanson and living the lie of war in perpetuity.
