Robots stealing jobs, Syrian quagmire, Bill Maher lackey, Propaganda piece

On this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin goes over the latest on Obama’s plan to aid Syrian rebels in light of Assad crossing the ‘red line.’ Abby then calls out Bill Maher, host of HBO’s ‘Real Time,’ for his evolution from being a controversial commentator to being an arrogant lackey for the democratic party, citing his rampant Islamophobia, support for drones and defense of the NSA’s wiretapping program. Abby then talks to Federico Piston, author of the book ‘Robots Will Steal Your Job,’ about the evolution of automation and building a future of sharing and cooperation. BTS wraps up the show with an interview with filmmaker Slavko Martinov, creator of ‘Propaganda,’ a documentary told from the perspective of North Koreans to critique the Western world’s hyper-capitalist structure, political manipulations and consumerism.
