Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, David Swanson, Jon Elmer, Janine Bandcroft Jan. 3, 2010

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.
