The Age of Hate (Public Lecture or Presentation)
Title: The Age of Hate
Abstract: The seizure of government by corporate power has paralyzed the mechanisms by which piecemeal and incremental reform is possible. Year after year, month after month, working men and women are endure chronic underemployment and unemployment, mounting debts and the collapse of the infrastructures in their communities often because they are privatized. Rising up across the country is an inchoate hatred and what sociologists call diseases of despair seen in the widespread opioid crisis, the suicide rates, mass shootings and far-right hate groups. None of these ills will diminish until we reestablish social bonds and reintegrate people back into an economy where they can have security, including health insurance and pensions, and a living wage.
