9/13 George Monbiot: Out of this Wreckage

September 13, 2017

Columnist George Monbiot (@GeorgeMonbiot) to discuss his new book, “Out of the Wreckage: A New Politics for an Age of Crisis.” How we came to our global moment. The problems with returning to a Keynesian (growth-reliant) economy in an time of climate change. The role of television in alienating people from their communities. The need for new stories and the success of ‘Big organizing” following from the Bernie Sanders campaign.

On the fun half – Hillary on the virtues of centrism, Mike Cernovich is upset with us, Senate Dems flock to Bernie’s Medicare-for-All bill, the NRA wants you to stop calling guns ‘weapons,’ and your calls and IMs.
