nader ralphWed., May 16, 6pm EST:  Mitchell’s guest is attorney, activist and politician Ralph Nader.  Ralph is an auto-safety reformer and consumer advocate on national renown. He has run for president several times, as a candidate for the Green Party.

Born in Connecticut in 1934, Ralph Nader went on to study law and became a crusader of car-safety reform in the 1960s. In 1971 he founded the consumer advocacy group Public Citizen and has continued to be an opponent of unchecked corporate power. Beginning in the 1990s, Nader entered the U.S. presidential race multiple times, with a notable run as candidate for the Green Party in the 2000 election.

Nader’s testimony before the Senate also set in motion Congressional action on automobile safety, and in September 1966 President Lyndon Johnson signed into law the National Traffic and nader breaking through powerMotor Vehicle Safety Act. This law created the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which oversees federal safety standards for automobiles and is authorized to impose recalls for unsafe vehicles. In 1967, in a throwback to Upton Sinclair, Nader also initiated a campaign that led to the passage of the 1967 Wholesome Meat Act, which imposed federal standards on slaughterhouses.

In the late 1960s and mid-1970s, Ralph Nader mobilized college students to form Public Interest Research Groups (PIRG), which aided his investigations in public policy and effective government regulation. His professional associates, sometimes referred to derisively as “Nader’s Raiders,” published reports on a wide range of subjects, including baby food, insecticides, mercury poisoning and coal-mine safety. Nader also founded the Center for Responsive Law in 1968 and Public Citizen Inc. in 1971. Idealistic and modest, he became known among his associates for his Spartan personal habits and long working hours.

nader unstoppableHowever, in the 1980s, President Ronald Reagan dismantled many of the government regulations that Nader helped establish. But while this blunted his effectiveness for a time, Nader continued his crusades to lower car-insurance rates in California, expose the dangers of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) on the ozone layer and prevent limitations on consumer lawsuit rewards. Amidst these activist efforts, Nader also wrote several more books, including The Menace of Atomic Energy (1977), Who’s Poisoning America (1981), Good Works (1981) and No Contest (1996). In 2012 and 2016, Ralph Nader declined to run again for president, but said he was looking for “enlightened billionaires” to put his support behind.

However, during his period of perpetual candidacy, he wrote scores of letters to serving presidents on campaign finance reform, the minimum wage and Supreme Court nominations. He has compiled these letters into a collection titled Return to Sender: Unanswered Letters to the President, 2001–2015. Nader claims the book sets a higher standard and tries to stimulate Americans to write letters to their representatives. 

Ralph was part of the Conscious Politics Roundtable discussion on A Better World Radio in 2012 with Rep. Dennis Kucinich, Barbara Marx Hubbard (the first female VP candidate to ever run) and Rocky Anderson, when Rocky was running for President in the Justice Party.  Listen here: http://abetterworld.tv/evolutionary-politics-roundtable-dennis-kucinich-rocky-anderson-barbara-marx-hubbard/

 This Week’s A Better World Media
This week’s TV interview with Hazel Henderson brings forward a commonsense logic about utilizing free photons emitted by the sun in the trillions every moment to power our energy needs throughout the planet.  Hazel brings a thoughtfulness, creativity, wisdom and commitment to establishing the good ethical and economic sense behind a renewable-energy-based economy and leaving fossil fuels behind.  When we examine the dangers of fossil fuels, to the environment and equally, the way they commandeer geo-politics, one recognizes that these are poison on every level to us and our environment.  Hazel Henderson is a pioneer in helping us forge the way as she has been doing for decades. 
This week’s Radio show with Ralph Nader who is a tireless leader who has been advising administrations for decades, sometimes welcomed and sometimes perceived as an irritant.  His persistence has changed policy, protected Americans on so many levels we cannot even account for all the good that has accrued from his work over decades.  If Ralph Nader would have won the Presidency, our world would be a different place.  Taxes would be fairer to all Americans, and would be spent protecting our environment, building education, infrastructure, real healthcare, not Big Pharma Care, he would have stood for and promoted peace and constructive engagement globally instead of picking fights and pursuing policies of dominance, of win-lose.  Unwilling to play political games but instead, speak truth to power, Ralph hasn’t been able to build the coalition necessary to succeed, to date, in a Presidential run.  But his life has demonstrated his values and integrity in a way that few candidates ever have.  We are very pleased to have Ralph join us again on A Better World Radio, a true American hero.
We invite you to be part of our community, committed to a healthy life-style, eco-sensitive living, kind, integrity-based and funny, full of love, compassion and well-being, committed to service to our larger human and planetary community.
