Moyers & Company [electronic resource]: Social Activism 2.0 - How Citizens Are Standing Up for Democracy

American history is rich with stories of social change inspired by the actions of motivated individuals and organized groups. Today's activists are no different - facing long odds against powerful and systemic special interests. In this edition of Moyers & Company, Bill Moyers talks with young but very experienced organizers George Goehl, Ai-Jen Poo, and Sarita Gupta, all involved with a nationwide citizens' initiative called the 99% Spring, which took place the week of April 9, 2012. Organizers aimed to train 100,000 Americans to teach about income inequality in homes, places of worship, campuses, and the streets. The program concludes with a Moyers essay on what citizens can do to find out who's paying for all those political ads running on their local television stations.

Moyers on America [electronic resource]: The Net @ Risk

A boon to computer users, broadband has meant fast Internet service for millions. But as the phone and cable giants that operate these networks consider the profits to be made by controlling the content and delivery of the Internet, Net neutrality-and the easy sharing of ideas and opinions that goes with it-may soon become a thing of the past in America. In this program, Bill Moyers and journalist Rick Karr report on the struggle for the soul of the Internet as lobbyists and legislators reshape the telecom laws for the broadband era. Will democracy's high-tech forum for the exchange of ideas be destroyed by regulations that favor online entities with deep pockets?

DEFORCE [electronic resource]: The Past, Present, and Future of Detroit

Once viewed as a model for urban America, Detroit has experienced what many believe to be the worst downturn in living standards and population of any large American city. Exactly how and why such a dramatic change occurred is still being debated, but the answers will undoubtedly shed light on challenges facing the U.S. as a whole. This documentary searches for the causes behind Motor City's disturbing decline. Questioning a widely held explanation that focuses on the collapse of the automobile industry, the film argues that Detroit's woes are largely political in nature. Viewers learn about vast socioeconomic differences between the city and neighboring communities and how issues connected to these disparities were mismanaged by federal, state, and local officials for decades. In to [...]
