Dear Democracy Now! Visitor: We are an independent, ad-free daily news program that serves millions of viewers and listeners each month. Our show is special because we make it our priority to go where the silence is. We put a spotlight on corporate and government abuses of power and lift up the stories of ordinary people working to make change in extraordinary times. We do all of this with just a fraction of the budget and staff of a commercial news show. We do it without ads, corporate sponsorship or government funding. How is this possible? Only with your support. If every visitor to this site in December gave just $10 we could cover our basic operating costs for 2015. Pretty exciting, right? Please do your part today. It takes just a couple of minutes to make sure that Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else in 2015.

This is viewer supported news

With the approach of the next millennium, there is growing anticipation, anxiety and curiosity about what the future will bring. Will the 21st century bring a Garden of Eden, a paradise of peace and plenty, an Age of Aquarius, or will it bring us the nightmare of 1984 or Brave New World?

Now renowned scientist and best-selling author Dr. Michio Kaku has taken on these questions in a new book and radio documentary. Visions — as the new project is called — documents how scientists are making the technologies that will revolutionize the next century. Through interviews with more than 150 of the world’s top scientists, including Nobel laureates, Dr. Kaku looks at how science will impact how we live, work and play.


  • Michio Kaku, the Henry Semat Professor of Theoretical Physics at the City University of New York and author of the national best-seller ??Hyperspace, which both the New York Times and Washington Post selected as one of the top science books of the year. Dr. Kaku also anchors a national science radio talk program produced by Pacifica Radio-WBAI in New York.
