3P-047 Cassandra’s Dilemma

Cassandra’s Dilemma: Discusses a 1999 book, Believing Cassandra, by Alan AtKisson, a 2000 book called Bowling Alone by Robert D. Putnam, and last month’s updated version of Pronoia Is the Antidote for Paranoia by Rob Brezsny. Explains the concept of Cassandra’s Dilemma. Cites graphs on economic disparity as a champagne glass, working women who want to work vs. have to work, the generational divide in malaise, and the rise and fall of the news audience. Relates the Honduran coup regime’s midnight assault on independent radio, and Argentina’s media reform bill to prohibit broadcasting monopolies.
