InterReflections with Peter Joseph, Facebook backs Exxon, the 18th century abolitionist Benjamin Lay

Peter Joseph is a director, documentarian, author, and social critic. He founded the Zeitgeist Movement and has just released his first narrative film – InterReflections. Lee Camp and Joseph discuss the film and how it reflects on the dystopian reality we're living in today. InterReflections is a continuation of Joseph's social criticism. It takes on the overpopulation versus overconsumption debate, the destructive nature of the financial industry, capitalism's inability to rationally understand ecological sustainability, and many more of the most important issues that underpin modern capitalism.

Naomi Karavani brings you the Weekly Offensive with a report on how ExxonMobil is using Facebook to try to get around negative press for the fossil fuel industry. As climate change becomes a more accepted truth of our age Exxon needs to spend millions to convince anyone that the fossil fuel industry should be allowed to survive. Meanwhile Facebook actively suppresses progressive news sources. It's almost like Facebook supports a conservative worldview and wants people to oppose a system that encourages taxing the rich. Natalie McGill takes a look back at the story of the Quaker abolitionist Benjamin Lay who opposed the institution of slavery and angered fellow Quakers in the 18th century. The 4'11 activist used theatrics and regular old risk-taking to spread his message of racial equality and infuriate slaveholders. Badass.
