Henry Giroux – November 21, 2017

 

 

We speak with Henry Giroux, a world-renowned educator, author and public intellectual whose latest book is “The Public in Peril: Trump and the Menace of American Authoritarianism”. He joins us to discuss his latest article at Truthout “Disposability in the Age of Disasters: From Dreamers and Puerto Rico to Violence in Las Vegas”. We assess how the Republican Party has been captured by the far right and will be a continuing problem for American democracy and society going forward unless a citizen’s movement can be built to counter a right-wing kleptocratic takeover of America, as growing plutocratic power and the drift towards authoritarianism threatens our economic viability and democratic future.
