Native American activism & the commercialization of mindfulness
This week Redacted VIP opens with an interview with Ronald Purser, the author of a book on the commodification of mindful living. Purser and Lee Camp go over the many ways that consumer culture and marketing have taken advantage of the trend toward mindfulness and similar practices.The practices people are using to escape the never ending stress under capitalism have been commercialized by capitalists. The marketers won't leave you alone for a second of your life, including when you're using yoga, meditation, or mindful walking to escape the everyday stresses of living under capitalism.
In the second half of the show Lee sits down with Jen Deerinwater. Deerinwater is a writer, and an activist for Native American issues and the rights of people living with disabilities. Lee and Deerinwater discuss her work with native communities and Elizabeth Warren's offensive history of using her claim to be a Native American to get ahead in her professional life.
