Bill Law talks about the need for Americans to support those in foreign countries peacefully demonstrating for political reform against oppressive regimes, and the hypocrisy surrounding America’s so-called support for democracy. Really, says Law, our government and its allies support the regimes they like and overthrow the ones they don’t, and call it “democracy” no matter what.

Discussed on the show:

  • “How the death of a president shed light on Egypt’s brutal dictatorship” (Middle East Eye)
  • “U.S. officials misled the public about the war in Afghanistan, confidential documents reveal” (Washington Post)
