    [The 90’s raw: Ian Mitroff interview]

    This tape features raw footage for the award-winning TV series The 90’s. It features an interview with author and University of Southern California professor Ian Mitroff. Mitroff discusses television and its effect on politics and public discourse, saying, “TV has become a self-sealing universe… a culture. There’s too much garbage on TV but you can’t turn it off… how do you turn off a culture?” and “The kids have gotten the message in this society which is… ‘Say yes to consumption in endless amounts.’ That’s the real message, and that’s what TV is really about in this country. It’s tied to consumerism, not even entertainment… it’s all consumerism.” Commenting on the television news’ reliance on political sound bites: “If [Abraham Lincoln] were around today he would be reduced to ‘Read my lips: no more slavery.'”

  • Hemp For Victory

    This is a video produced by H.E.M.P. (Help Eliminate Marijuana Prohibition), a political action group, which showcases Hemp For Victory, a 1942 film produced by the U.S. Department of Agriculture in which American farmers are encouraged to grow hemp for the war effort. The USDA film is bookended by commentary from Jack Herer, H.E.M.P.’s founder/spokesman, who espouses on the many uses of hemp, and asks for money. While Herer provides much useful information, some of his claims seem quite dubious; especially his assertion that marijuana users will live an average of one year longer than non-marijuana users. Herer also outlines the U.S. government’s long denial and recent confirmation of the existence of the 1942 film.
