*"From Here to Doomsday: Endless Wars and Insane Nuclear Policy Since the
Pentagon Papers." with *
*Sacco & Vanzetti Awardee  Daniel Ellsberg*

*Daniel Ellsberg* is an American economist, political activist, and former
United States military analyst who, while employed by the RAND Corporation,
precipitated a national political controversy in 1971 when he released the
Pentagon Papers, a top-secret Pentagon study of the U.S. government
decision-making in relation to the Vietnam War, to The New York Times, the
Washington Post and other newspapers.

On January 3, 1973, Ellsberg was charged under the Espionage Act of 1917
along with other charges of theft and conspiracy, carrying a total maximum
sentence of 115 years. Due to governmental misconduct and illegal
evidence-gathering, and the defense by Leonard Boudin and Harvard Law
School professor Charles Nesson, Judge William Matthew Byrne Jr. dismissed
all charges against Ellsberg on May 11, 1973.

Ellsberg was awarded the Right Livelihood Award in 2006. He is also known
for having formulated an important example in decision theory, the Ellsberg
paradox, his extensive studies on nuclear weapons and nuclear policy, and
for having voiced support for WikiLeaks, Chelsea Manning, and Edward
Snowden. Ellsberg was awarded the 2018 Olof Palme Prize for his "profound
humanism and exceptional moral courage." *– wikipedia*

*12/20 - "The Culture of Despair" with Chris Hedges*
The rupture of social bonds throughout American society has created a
culture of despair, one where individuals and groups seek affirmation in
acts of self-destruction. How do we restore those bonds? And if we cannot
what will it mean for the United States and the world?
