Cancerous capitalism, NFL brain disease, US education: Turning kids into drones

­Abby Martin talks to University of Guelph professor and author of ‘The Cancer Stage of Capitalism’ John McMurty about capitalism as the source of social inequality, and what he believes to be the root cause of most social ills. Abby then talks to Diablo Valley College professor Adam Bessie about the failing educational policies in the US and whether privatized education is the answer. BTS wraps up with a look at this year’s Super Bowl as a marriage between corporatism and athleticism, and discusses the overlooked issue of chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) contributing to player suicides.
