"Dot assembly in such a way that it became more possible for them. To and i could see a situation where we run tool assemblies. Where you'd have the local authority assembly that way down the road and then you'd have the party assembly of the t. would have lost members and common so they'd have a lock dot com but they wouldn't be quite the same thing right. Yes i guess what because right is the real decisions won't be on the taken by the people in the assemblies in the future sites. Yeah talk about. The whole idea is is some scaffolding so the idea is you built the stark democracy up against the representative democracy when the direct democracy becomes sort of Half enough it can just pick away right on time because foundation at mutual aid on community and stuff like that trust underneath it already. It's sort of a power perch recipes. Yeah okay yeah that makes sense i so the it was basically an open invitation like the assemblies. Here the meetings happening you can be here and you can be part of it And you know. Because i especially you know i don't know about the uk or other places but in the us. I'm sure a lot of people. Don't go to their town hall meetings. So like i don't like i think people sort of have it in their heads like what's it gonna do. I'm gonna go yell at city council and maybe they'll think about it but If it is like a direct democracy thing. I i think most people would probably do it. Everyone also when chelsea physical because by disabled people were very keen to keep inclusive. The unthought means not everyone can participate by being at meeting so whenever we make a decision. There's also sunday grace period where people can comment on not can restart the whole process if enough people say no we just like this it starts the yet we no longer have consensus than we reevaluate. And we go back to the drawing board and we which will those people in and we try to reconnect this undid a slightly once when we were doing our selection process and there was a a few minor points the people rights but very late in the consultation period. So i ended up taking. It's three weeks. Make the decision when we expect to in a one but thoughts the sort of thing you not from new defiance processes to help with. But what we're going to be doing is physical meetings when we can actually help them They will be broadcast as well. So that will be a stream. People will be able to join in with their own zoom. They will either be able to send questions off questions directly all-race points And sometimes these things will probably take us if different meetings in practice rather than it being one single meeting with a combination of tally operation in many locations and things like that we can probably throw largely voices involved. The other issue is often with our democracies they get a bad with a number of people in them So zoom has the breakout rooms. Essentially so if you've got the an assembly that deals with disability rights for example if you're people joy and some of these people are going to be interested particularly how that relates to medicine so you would create a medically related disability rights assembly and they would cut off and they were going deal with that but they would still be a member of the original assembly to Like with the regional assemblies

"So okay so there's no like central organization so it is like almost like the The the sort of different states have have you each have their own democratic party thing. But you don't have the sort of central. Dnc fan happening so the the closest we have a central organizing committee of any kind is to start organizers so we have the secretary committee which is largely running because we haven't elected all the people necessary to run it site on basically the only member of the moment but We're not big enough to really pushed out yet. fine But the secretary of committees job is just day to day stuff so like get the money out of the bank consented to this person or confirm this thing. All somebody says is this policy consensus account funded document and you go and check it for them. It's like it's not making decisions. It's carrying out other people's decisions instead. So it's it's an actual executive instead of how how executives tend to work abrupt sensor democracies where they take on leadership roles are executive tilson Any leadership capability so. I can't make decisions and all all of the day to day decisions that the secretary committee can take require unanimous decision. Everybody on the committee has to commit to this. Being enslaved policy consensus is what the decision is. So you like is this consensus. Yes the problem. Neri's of course. Is that the members can revive opposition. That who might study time so they just have to call for They said you didn't. You didn't stick to consensus that. So we're gonna replace you but it's pretty much simple. Yeah yeah we would. The i mean the point about the executive is is so good because i recently looked into The us congress under the articles of confederation which You know like we hear a lot about seventeen. Seventy six was the you know the founding of the us and this and that but it was like a over a decade later before we had the constitution as we know it and and george washington became president before that we had the articles of confederation and there was basically congress and a president who just had to like sign off on what congress decided. That just sounded so much better than what we have which is Which is chaos with a senate and president has too much power in some ways and not enough and others so yeah. I like that that structure.

"In disability activism organisms organisms organizations familiar with It's it's designed so that we can all take either from each other which is silas again. It's it's very much from each holding to ability to each quoting. Nate right Yeah the it. It does seem like a anarchist structures to serve that that sort of Socialist idea very well And it it does seem to sort of cover some of the basis that When we think in terms of of just in like this socialist like worker mindset it. Might we might sort of leave. Some out If we're so focused on on workers and then it's like well not everyone can can work the same way. But so when would you say that or so was the was the labor party ever You know more left or like did it change. Its at some point like when would you say it happened if it did. So i'd say the labor quality strove to be left wing from the beginning But it was from the very beginning coopted by wealthy people who wanted to slightly different agenda. You basically central democrats until the. It was impossible to implement socialism quickly. And you'd have to do it quite slowly. Long period of time and thought was fighting society co-founders policy with the trade union movement But the fabian have the money and so they tended to produce the findings society produce have pays so almost all. Emp's in the party pop from handful. I'll twenty twenty five. Are members of the fighting society or is written for the fighting society all had donations from the fabian society. So the parliamentary labour policy is fabienne. And then you have the membership in the unions and essentially apart from a brief of couples. Medicine like party's history. The fabian of always been on top and a great example of when they want on top was during coleman's time and what they did was they sabotage to elections to make sure that they were So i don't think labour's have been not far left. I think there's been a constant struggle to try to drag it to the left but always been very hill. I it's time to stop flogging donkey that whole so this point right. Yeah i was just thinking because i think tony blair was labor party. Is that right. yeah he was. Yeah 'cause he was the first one. I was old enough to be aware of And yeah he never struck me as as much of a leftist yawn when he was he was giving speeches conference when he was a young person before he was a big politician. He came across as very socialist. I think that was. That's because it's how you rise in the nypd posse isn't talk the talk then once you're in a position of power you start walking the walk out and kiss dhamma. The current leader of the labour policy. Easter royd for a trotskyist magazine news. The additives for he wants right the woods. I'm not sure the police have any place in civil society. He went on director of prosecutions. Right yeah yeah sounds like obama. Or hillary clinton or any of any of our guys but yeah so. The cooperation is is an interesting point. Because you know. Speaking of people not understanding socialism. I think A the people don't really get that like a lot of the the sort of Stalinist like the the the bad side of what we call. Socialism is like yeah. They're authoritarian like status forces that co-opt these movements and say like yes. We are socialist. And then they do things and i always say like yeah. People don't understand like americans don't understand that because they also understand that. The enlightenment was a good idea that was co opted by rich slave owners. Here you know. Like i think it's a similar sort of process that happens and wondering if you have a sense of like what. How could like harmony party or any other leftist party going forward. Avoid that. i think i'll muddle. Is how woida structure. Which hasn't really come were federation of assemblies. So there is no national policy. That has no national executive committee There's no cold group Speak for everybody else instead. Each assembly house. A five chris. Whether it's geographical light you live.

It's a an extension of freedom. It's a it's a democracy expansion pack. We haven't installed yet like the This is how richard wolfe puts it. Which i think sort of builds on some about mark said which is that you know. Capitalism was a step forward in that regard. It was better than feudalism and feudalism was guess. Better than slavery you know. And it's like yeah but if we want to like take this next step it's democratizing the workplace But you know at least a very large part of it i disagree. That capsules was just four because capitalism replaced feudalism in the city's a city power civilization. But not in the countryside at the time. You were practising off sound socialism. You have society those belt on gifting on trust on on the idea that somebody would do because she knew you can trust them to do it. You do the exchange money when you didn't trust people and so that was something he did in the city. When you went to the big city you can trust people. You knew that because lent's top of each other here. An feudalism extended that power into the countryside. And said that you have to trust the market. You have to trust the system. The nation you can't trust each other option was a major step back and swipe tend to think of capitalism is neo feudalism internally. Because it's the extension of feudalism over the countryside with a nice little risk into make it pretty. Yeah okay interesting yeah i. I haven't heard it put that way. Yeah that's that's really interesting. I think richard wolfe tense to Sort of generalized things to get people to have like a basic understanding. And that might be you know maybe to a fault sometimes but yeah yeah Who's i wanna go next So when it comes to the the disability stuff in the medical side of it I had a similar experience actually And for you know for a long time like did the whole doctor and can't find anything wrong and I ended up with a diagnosis of fibromyalgia.

Thousands In Texas Still Don't Have Power As Lawmakers Investigate ERCOT

"Last week's mass power failure continues, and so does the political fall out. Have been resignations from the body that oversees the grid and lawmakers open their investigations tomorrow. Joining us now is Dominic Anthony Walsh of Texas. Public Radio. Hi there. Hi. First. How's the recovery going? How are people doing? So the majority of the state does have power and water back. But there are still thousands of residents, especially in the Texas Hill country, for example, who don't have power and their electric provider isn't sure when the power will be back. So for thousands of people of this crisis has stretched on for more than a week. And you know bodies are still being found. Local officials are saying it will be weeks till we know the full number of people who died in this disaster, but it's already in the dozens and is expected to climb to well over 100. And these are people who couldn't power medical equipment people who froze to death in their homes or in their cars, as well as people without housing, who froze to death outdoors, experiencing the worst of the conditions. Wow. So in the face of that staggering death toll, the hearings begin tomorrow and the actions of ERCOT, the body that manages the Texas grid are likely to be front and center. What do you expect to come up? Is gonna be a lot. But one key question. Why wasn't the power grid ready? But ERCOT, which again is at the center of all this doesn't actually own the physical infrastructure that provides power. Rather Okay, just oversees the flow of electricity. Here's Peter Crampton, now former member of their cots board. He spoke at his final board meeting earlier today. Cutlets flying a 7 47. It had not one but two engines experience catastrophic failure. And flew the damage playing for 103 hours before safely landing in the Hudson. In my mind the men and women in their car control room here out. So in this analogy, those engines that blew up could be power generating units owned by public and private power companies, not ERCOT again. Haircuts rule was to do an emergency landing. That's the order of so called Syria's of controlled blackouts. So that and even worse crash when it happened like the entire grid going off line, which, according to Urquhart, could take a weeks or months to repair. So far, Kat is likely to argue that they were just doing the best they could with a bad situation. Are there other places Lawmakers might look to hold people accountable. Absolutely. First, there is the Public Utility Commission of Texas. It oversees our cod and has a three member board appointed by Governor Greg Abbott. Second, there's the railroad Commission, which actually oversees the natural gas sector, not railroads and the natural gas sector failed to provide enough power during this crisis. Those two agencies, the Public Utility Commission and the railroad Commission have regulatory power. ERCOT does not. And of course, there is the state Legislature itself, which actually makes the laws that these agencies are supposed to enforce. One proposal mandate that all plants whether as against cold weather, and there's a debate around that who pays for the weatherization taxpayers or the company's And finally, people are already resigning. Tell us about why So Peter, cramped in who we heard earlier, along with a few other board members resigned after taking heat that because they didn't live in the state now did them living out of the state caused these blackouts. No, but Governor Greg Abbott was quick to welcome The news. In the short term market officials will face hearing from the state Legislature tomorrow, and there will be tough questions for them. But again, Ultimately there are other bodies that hold most of the power is actually mandate changes after all of this.

"That's the periodic nature of wind. So here's another fascinating bit of incompetence, you'll to really love this one. So when ERCOT was panicking, and they were beginning to shut down power Shut down power to the substations out in Midland and West Texas that power the natural gas pipelines that fed natural gas to the natural gas power plants. And so instead of 16 billion cubic feet of gas moving through these lines, it was cut down before and when these massive plants that are used to operating 24 73 65 except for scheduled maintenance. When they start to go down. You can't just like flip a switch and turn them back on again. It takes a few hours and end if the temperature is zero or negative five. Now you've got a real problem because as that plant shuts down, some things would freeze. Which wouldn't have normally done so when it was operating at full capacity, and so they really shot themselves in the foot. And that's why Governor Greg Abbott is asking for all of them to reside. Now Urquhart's really interesting. You have wind power people on it. You have people who live in Michigan. You have someone from Germany on it. It's it's a nonprofit. It's a 51 C four And it's responsible for managing the electricity in the grid in Texas. Well, who has the authority over her cot? Well, the Public Utilities Commission in Texas But here's the thing they can't actually just order them to fire their board. All that can happen is is Governor Abbott, who is the most popular politician. In Texas can say you should resign and hopefully they'll get the message and they'll resign. Was that just a stupid mistake to cut the power that feeds? The gas powered plants. Well, it was a stupid mistake, compounded by the fact that we had no margin in the first place, and we had no margin in the first place because we've been over building wind pepper, and we've been retiring coal fired power plants. Which, by the way is President Biden's plan, right? He and Camilla Harris, that's what they want to do They want so I mean, it's similar to the problems we had last summer in California. I think that is that you know this. This whole green thing has become this slogan, and it's not thought through. It's very complicated As you've explained, although we followed it Well, you explained it really well, but you can't just have this stupid slogans saying Well, let's do wind and solar well, it doesn't work in all circumstances, and it creates other problems. You didn't. There's no intelligent discussions of this stuff anymore, either. Either you want to relive the environment yet religion, So here's another challenge. You know, Texas has gradually been adding some battery story. Do you have a lot more in California? Now? It's very, very costly. You know something?

So here's the Here's the thing with wind and solar If if you're going to operate a grid off of wind and solar, and people say, Oh, look how cheap it is. No, no, it's not cheap, because if you really want the lights on in the heat to work when you really need it. You have to spend trillions of dollars, building hundreds of millions of metric tons worth of battery farms to store up that electricity.

"To 5. Long term care dot com, now from the Cairo radio new Center streaming on the Cairo radio APP to Seattle police officers are under investigation after attending the violent Pro Trump Rally the U. S Capitol last week. Power seven TV's Deborah Horn has details. If they went into the Capitol building, and that's a crime. Retired King County Sheriff John Urquhart says the First Amendment protects the officers if they remained outside the U. S Capitol. But if they too broke in, they committed the federal equivalent of criminal trespassing. Something that could cost them their jobs. Criminal trespass, especially in this particular situation is exceedingly serious on. I would think they would. They would really be in jeopardy of losing their jobs if they went in that building. It's still unclear where the officers were during the attack there now on pays leave during the investigation. A slap in the face. That's how black community leaders fighting for police reform. See the police response to the attacks on the state and national capitals. If these were black people there on the capital, the barriers would already been their defenses would have been up day's events. They wouldn't have made it anywhere near the capital tomorrow, sounds very with converged media who was on the front lines filming Black Lives matter. Protestors in Seattle nightly all throughout last year. Says the difference in their response was incredible when it was white protesters, But he also sees it as a rare opportunity.

"Lasted 17 minutes, is part of agency failures. It also criticizes the misinformation given to the public, with initial media releases, saying that Lee had a knife. The Li family is suing the county over Tommy's death, family attorney Jeff Campy says. They've always known what this independent review found, And those facts are that Tommy died of two gunshot wounds to his back and one to the back of his hand. No amount of getting together and getting your story straight. Changes. That fact. Tommy was not attacking the officer with a knife when he was shot. And the report also pointed out that there was no knife. There never was a knife and he was shot in the back, and those facts are omitted from the King County Sheriff's Office reports. I ask you. How is it? That experience investigator would leave out the fact that Tommy was shot in the back when he was at the autopsy. And that's what The independent investigator concluded that this just simply was a sham. Campese calls the shooting and what he believes was a cover up after the fact wholly unacceptable. Later this morning. The outside review will formally be presented to the county Council Law and Justice Committee where Sheriff Mitzi Johanna will speak to it. And Hannah joins us lives. This happened under Shover cart on we now have Ah, New Sheriff Muncey geomagnetic. This sounds to me like cops caught lying, correct. That's what this independent review would definitely definitely suggests. There was some misinformation. Some of the issue here is that the force of your board report came out in 2018. That was after Sheriff Joe hadn't have taken office. And so she essentially Let that come out, and there was not enough of information in that report. Not a lot of details were in there. That should have been Shi issued in the statement last night from her office an apology for that, and already indicated that they had already made some corrections in the department policy. Because of that, we expect to hear a lot more from her than Corrections Department policy. What does that mean? Policy is, you don't lie. Right. That's always been the right. Yes, yes, but what The What This is specifically talking about is like the also the misinformation. When the initial public media release came out, it said that Tommy Lee had a knife which he did not, and it didn't come become clear. They didn't publicly say that he didn't have a knife for some time. So that's some of the criticism here. That is something that happened under John Urquhart is the person who issued that false statement still working for the sheriff. Yes, yes, All the deputies involved in here's the other big thing that this report pointed out. There's a couple of different reasons that this happened but They're the timing of the shooting right before 9 40 took effect and as Constantine was revamping the county inquest process. Essentially amounted to this never being reviewed by the prosecutor for any possible criminal action. It's the first that's something that the the author of this Independent Reviews, wrote in all of his 20 years of looking at these types of incidents. He's never seen a case where there hasn't been The question of someone prosecutor looking at whether this was legal or not, And it's a timing thing because the inquest processes on hold because of a lawsuit and because the implementation of I 9 40 hadn't completely taken effect yet. It's just out there with no no one looking at it for that, Like all sorts of excuses, But the problem is the initial sin of putting ally to papers. So tell me this you mean, you know a lot of cops bring a lot more than I do. Is this still there? This idea that you got to be part of the club here. You've gotta play along you Whatever you do, you can't you If it requires lying to protect a cop. You must do it. Is that still the culture? I think there's still some that have that mentality. Not all. I think most cops that I know are on board with the things that we're talking about, kind of collectively as a nation right now. Police reforms, making sure you know there's not these awful use of force killings that air just simply unjustified and making sure that there's better oversight and that there is if there is a mistake made if there is something that's not working Or if there is a lie that there's some sort of accountability. Accountability is the key here. There's never any accountability that something has to change. Most of the law enforcement people that I know completely agree with those changes, and not that brotherhood kind of mentality. There's always going to be like you have in the military. You gotta have your your buddies back so There's always see what's happening in the military like that Fort Hood with that kind of culture, and do they understand how difficult it is for those of us who grew up respecting authority, and Ah Honor. The police want respect how difficult it is for us to maintain that attitude. When stuff like this comes out, you want to be able to, and I mean, I've been a reporter for a long time. I always took police as God's truth because they swear an oath is an oath. And if the cops don't tell the truth, innocent people go to jail. And as that happens more and more and more People get fed up, and that's the problem we have now and we see where it leads. I can't believe this would still be going on, and I couldn't agree with you more. That's something that again has pointed out in this report again. This happened in 2017. It was a little bit of a different time then, but, yeah, three years ago, it was only three years ago. I expect maybe in the sixties when we had, you know, systemic corruption in the police actually on the take. Thank goodness those days are gone, I think, but for this to continue its crazy Hannah No, and I completely agree and again. There's got to be this big change in this accountability. There is that Lack of information. There has forever been this kind of feeling in police agencies all over the nation that you don't give anything more than than you absolutely have. Nowadays, though, again, most cops that I know they feel just like you do when somebody that they worked with has an incident like this, or there's some sort of, you know, lying or misinformation or cover up even That happens. They don't want that. Because that makes them look bad. It completely erodes the public trust, and it makes it more dangerous for them to be doing their own jobs. So there's a more cops than not who support Bringing these things the light and making the changes that everybody is calling for. You know, I've talked with the Sura, who runs the criminal justice, Police training right? And she's and that's her philosophy. You're not You're not helping by covering up. You're making it worse when you cover up. Absolutely. And she's great. And she will help bring about a lot of the change is absolutely wonderful Areas. Hannah Scott, Hannah. Thank you. Let us take a look at the weather. Actually, there's not much to look at. Except that it's going to be a gorgeous as far as the eye could see, at least for the next 10 days. So just to double check here, All I see is maybe a little bit of cloud and is moving in on Saturday in a little bit of cloudiness on On Monday. We will welcome it by then, because the rest is just sunny as faras we can see the warmest day is apparently going to be no fried is going to be 83. That's pretty warm. Next.
