12:31 pm
impact it's going to make on the future of the united states that interview's next now be back with more news for you another update in fifteen minutes from now. i. know. how he is sitting down with author blogger and public speaker james howard kunstler so thanks so much for joining us it's nice to be here let's get started with the occupy wall street movement we've seen many media outlets try to ridicule them marginalize this movement as something that's temporary and really out are just teenage behavior and you've essentially called this bogus in your blog let's talk about that what is your take on occupy wall street well first of all it's hilarious that all of these scolds in the media are shaking their fingers at these young people and say oh you don't you can articulate your position you have any agenda we're living in a time in the united states when the consensus about reality is so fractured even
12:32 pm
among people who are supposed to know what's going on that we cannot construct a coherent story about what's happening to us and what we're going to do about it so to expect the young people to be able to construct a coherent narrative where nobody else in the culture is capable of doing that i think is a little unfair. what's more you can tell just from the placards that they're carrying around we know where their heads are at the the most significant or telling one that i saw said. i have seventy thousand dollars college debt twelve thousand dollars in medical bills i'm twenty two where's my bailout that's a good enough reason to be out there i think so and i think what it represents is very clear it's the idea that this younger generation feels like their future
12:33 pm
has been sold out from under them but with major unions joining with seeing a much more kind of mature knowledgeable group of people come out onto the streets thousands of people do you think that's reason enough for the media and politicians to really start taking this seriously i don't know if we're capable of really interpretating what's going on politically in our country right now you know i have a pet theory that the more social and economic distress a culture goes through the greater the delusional thinking gets so that you know that as the social stress rises the crazy ideas and delusional ideas tend to increase it's not a very. good it's not a very good set of conditions for you know arriving at a picture of reality if we compare occupy wall street to the arab spring we saw american politicians and the mainstream media plotting the arab spring yes this is somewhat of
12:34 pm
a similar beginning of some uprising along those lines isn't the double standard a little bit too obvious yeah it's amazing it's amazing that we were cheerleading for all those people in the street in tahrir square you know anderson cooper was down there and you know all the other. usual media suspects were there cheering for the protesters in spite of the fact that there was a very good chance that the outcome of the revolution might not be so good let's put it this way you know that the outstanding feature of the politics in the last three years. there's has been that nobody on wall street has had to sit in a court room to answer for the tremendous amount of misbehavior in banking and you know this includes acts that can only be described as swindles and frauds well people have been talking about the lack of accountability
12:35 pm
ever since the financial meltdown some place three years ago but we haven't seen anybody come out onto the streets why now and do you think that this movement could end up taking america to a better place at least in terms of pushing polit politicians to hold someone accountable if just i do think there's a reason why we haven't seen a lot of protests the kind of things that have been happening to americans are very shameful they lose or draw up they lose their income they can't support their families they can't feed their families their house gets taken away from them you know these are things that tend to be humiliating and shameful and i think that because of the way our system works where you know this is the land of freedom and liberty people blame themselves and they internalize a lot of the bad feelings and then you know they suppress it because it's shameful the combination of the shame and the anger that's all kind of mixed up with that
12:36 pm
has not really expressed itself and it may take a bit more to show that over the edge you may take you know a bit more hardship now in one of your articles you say the hope invested in obama will end up in a museum of lost hopes along with the integrity of t.v. news i want to ask you if this were to be obama's only term as president what would he be remembered like in history. well i voted for obama i think that he's probably all said and done he's probably a decent chap but it also appears that he's either a hostage to history or a hostage to a certain faction most in our culture and economy like the wall street bankers and . remember over a thousand people were successfully prosecuted for the misdeeds in the savings and loan scandals of the late one nine hundred eighty s. and early one nine hundred ninety s. no significant figure from the banking community has really been is even sat in
12:37 pm
a courtroom and had to answer for any of their their deeds you know there have been a couple of fluky cases including bernie made off you know these are outliers these are the marginal cases but really the heart of the system hasn't been touched i think that. mr obama will be remembered as a kind of a spectacular failure and i also think that this is a period of history that is comparable to the eighteenth fifty's in the usa that was the period that preceded the civil war and it was a period in which political institutions were failing you know an interesting thing happens in situations like this institutions lose what's called legitimacy legitimacy a reason to exist and the faith among people who have subscribed to the their beliefs that they are worth believing in and you know we're seeing
12:38 pm
a grand failure of legitimacy now in the political system in the usa and it's rather frightening you really sort of forecast every year for the year ahead what the united states should await and in your forecast for twenty eleven you said that the number one question really is kind of political economy be floating like a win here that prove a loon of gusts of sheer fakery has the balloon caught yet. well i think that the air is been going out of it steadily but surprisingly slowly for three years and you know we're the whatever pin prick in this balloon you know where we are it seems to be located at the moment is over europe with tremendous questions about the legitimacy of the european union and the banking sector more more generally but you know all of the banks in europe and north
12:39 pm
america are. interrelated there's no chance that what happens on one continent is not going to affect another i think that there sooner or later we're going to see similar problems in the usa the air is going out of the balloon. it's been remarkable that the fabric of this bubble was so strong but when all is said and it's a fabric of faith and confidence that the system is meaningful and sustainable and people are beginning to doubt that that that is if we could return to the role of the media you return to the this issue in your blog quite often you've written that they shout down invited guests commentators pander to their demographic and dissed their rivals for ratings what role do they play these days well you know culture goes through cycles when institutions. take various forms acquire a certain legitimacy and then blow it throw it away and i've seen it happen in my
12:40 pm
lifetime where you know the authority of the evening news on the networks was unquestioned but what's happened is that you know i think that the media has lost its confidence it's certainly in a great state of. convulsive transition we do know that younger people tend not to really go. the news from t.v. it all you know they mostly get it from the internet. there are very few kind of vested legitimate authorities on the internet who are trusted news bringers they all appear to have an agenda of some kind or another whether it's a left wing right wing capitalist socialist you know we never want it is and you know i think we have a long way to go before any of these things are sorted out and it's one of the reasons that we can't construct a coherent narrative about what's happening to us do you think the united states
12:41 pm
could face its own car story i prefer to call it a reset because i don't think it's the end of the world or the end of culture or the end of america i think it's a reset of culture but it can be very very painful and you know there will be a lot of losses involved of of property and status and you know things that were important to people that they're going to lose and so we have to somehow be prepared for this period of history that's very difficult but i think we're seeing is something that i did expect that we would mount a campaign to sustain the unsustainable because of our tremendous psychological investments in the stuff that we've got running you know we put all of our national treasure into building freeways and building these massive suburbs and building all of the accessories and furnishings for them you know the strip malls in the malls
12:42 pm
and all the you know all the stuff that comes with them. that's where our national wealth has gone you know we're not going to just kick it into the garbage can without a struggle. but i don't think that it's going to work very well for us anyway so the final in the final analysis when i think is going to happen is america is going to be dragged kicking and. reaming into a reset of daily life james howard kunstler thank you so much for your time. the lists
12:43 pm
. lists. see. a very warm welcome to you this is your news today protesters on the bolts since they have. essentially it's a good chance that she says it's a good look at least status of the human experiments because it's. the weakest you

a tiny bit more here. now football when the russian prime a little it is they may have retained their top spot following a free one away victory to restore the visitors needed nine minutes to open the scoring as planned and registered another goal there to minutes in defend either smaller file excitable in the air or so the referee had no other option but to point to the sport so look at each making no mistake that turning now. to second minutes an extended belly to free the fire of idaho must take process to become an old one go back straight after the break but that was it for the house so three want to finish and from top of the standings i. partook most criminal have gone forth in the standings as their fresh sitter almost losing the stadium for nail merrick suki opened the scoring for the muscovites ten minutes and then was in
12:49 pm
a strike doubled the lead just before the break as he had plenty of time to fire his powerful shot into a bit surprised corner after the break stopped and started to retreat a human contributed with his wrist first go for the team to make it three nil finally i rate round the nets once again for the outside two minutes before the final whistle to suit the final result for neil. thanks. and in little big one similar to one jack hartley against second placed scratch moscow the latest sport in nashville is to want to learn it's meant after sixty minutes of play. to the english premier league now where manchester city have fresh cross-town rivals united six one at old trafford and. double their for the first question out of the consolation goal for alex ferguson's men. sixty five

12:51 pm
car with slim ascent of lounger several minutes before the final whistle. over to tennis now where the american civil cover has won her first ever career doubletake title big kremlin cup that's after greeting card in the women's singles final here in moscow being counted turned out so there are three sets it was a stunning player to open a rather is in the sixth grade of eight. record for sure going to tie break to because it's a better the decider taking some pride to match the trophy. in the men's game at the very rich who claim to be title following a straight sets victory over competitor and defending champion viktor troicki talks it's ready to open he said six forty two was even more than in the second has dropped only two games there to win the cup. now the north american sport to look cross has become an unlikely pastime in russia the exciting game drawing
12:52 pm
a lot of new followers here this year it's consent to put up with now explains. well cross is recognized as the oldest north american sport but the origins in the field century the native americans who took it to their hearts even went as far as calling it's the little brother of war many amendments have occurred since then alone its popularity in the us indeed worldwide to flourish. is a team game so it's got that competition think it's in the air so it's not here three dimensional is it there's more scope. to clever stuff like that you know you've got to give it you stay and you got yeah it's like if they said it is ok but they aren't going to contact things kind of funny as i gave you a padded up enough to get her really if he does not like about the boss suddenly like four guys planned i think it's ok by me you know it's a terrific lacrosse has been a surprising revelation for russian audiences despite having few domestic players
12:53 pm
and just to be clubs one each in moscow and st peter's move this poor state sure is growing in every measure between the rivals is a big event at the moment foreign fans are in the majority in the stands. i think in russia it's a it's an occurrence well it's you know it's a brand new sport and i think you know we have a lot of americans a lot of british people here and there are trying to play with the russians and change the russians how to play the course and hopefully integrate it into question culture is a great game for young people because it's it's of us but i don't and if you know it's the out there to become to on get stronger and to make friends the reality but cross has been a tool in the games in one thousand know for a night you know weight with canada topping the poor human both occasions it's also the national some whisper of the comes from the physically demanding pastime with its full context downs not too dissimilar to the country number one sport ice hockey so i was looking for team mates to play hockey and going to the cross and
12:54 pm
now i like it not a lot of people here know anything about again i like to watch people's amazed. faces when they see my stick and helmets in the streets it has a lot in common with hockey so i mean the shooting i mean the game itself strategy involved it's pretty similar to hockey and how his partner here so i mean i think you can definitely grow in russia there is still a long way to go full across before it becomes a well known sport on russian soil but if the enthusiasm of the people really playing it here is anything to go by the signs are that it will happen sooner rather than earlier as a matter of origin. i thought very sad news italian rider marco simoncelli has died after a crash at a malaysian noted to pay events and said pang of the twenty three year old is he part two crowds of ten eleven after veering off color and withstand valentino rossi the american writer also as a serious injury fellow tell him what he was able to return to the pits the rest
