Max Eternity - Quoting Fredrick Douglass on the subject of politics and power, celebrated journalist and independent TV host of Democracy Now!, Amy Goodman, commented recently that "Power concedes nothing without a demand." Goodman was being interviewed by PBS TV host, Tavis Smiley, when she made the statement, referring to the fact that even with a Democrat in the White House, progressive change will not occur if citizens do not hold leadership to account. In her conversation with Smiley, Goodman talked about her new book "The Sound Barrier", also responding to questions about the importance of Net Neutrality, fighting global warming and global hunger--in America and abroad, and the need to end the US war and occupations in the Middle East, by stating in part that even as Presidents and rhetoric change, the issues have remained the same.
