 Hosted by Clayton Morgareidge, this first show of 2010 proposes that another, better world is possible.  Portland writer Kristian Williams tells Bill Resnick what it would take to provide domestic security without violent policing.  Clayton reflects on the recent terrorist attempt on an airliner to find connections between terrorism and the frustration of social connection.  Psychologist Felix Warneken describes experiments showing that toddlers want to help others -- indicating that humanity is capable of living cooperatively.  And Frann Michel explains Alain Badiou's "communist hypothesis": that the subordination of labor to a dominant class is not inevitable.
