This episode recaps a week of Connecting the DOTS - our new UniverseCity blog that responds to Democracy Now. It features Percy Schmeiser's Principles of Food and Agriculture, and a rebuttal to Jared Diamond's Guns, Germs, and Steel that quotes James Loewen's Lies My Teacher Told Me. We suggest that, along with germs, natives hadn't built up an immunity to religions without honor.
Third Paradigm is written, performed, and produced by Tereza Coraggio. Please contact at tereza(at) with comments or if airing this show.

Music: Isolate by Moby, Mothers of the Disappeared by U2, and U2's cover of Instant Karma
Reads Ursula K. LeGuin and an original interpretation of Passage Two of the Tao te Ching, along with II,16 from Ranier Maria Rilke's Book of Hours. Reads the lyrics of Mothers of the Disappeared prior to this haunting song.
The next section, titled Shadow Wars and Guerilla Presidents, looks at Arundhati Roy in India, the new President of Brazil, Dilma Rousseff, and the printer bomb that warrants drone attacks and hunter-killer teams in Yemen. Spencer Ackerman's Wired article on the Shadow War in Yemen is quoted. The concluding piece, called "What's Your Breaking Point?" poses Ralph Nader's question of what would cause Democrats to walk away from the party. His reference to a moral compass is explored in light of foreign policy, and a resurgence of the nonbinding referendum is called for.
