Giroux on 'Zombie Politics' and the need for imagination
The Burning House has been quiet, again. Your correspondent has been writing in other venues and rehearsing an important acting project (while getting some audition material ready as well), applying for jobs, and more.
It may remain quiet for a little while, but we wanted to share with you this conversation between journalist Bill Moyers and the scholar Henry Giroux, as we found it compelling enough to listen to it multiple times. It concerns democracy, capitalism, and what is required for true human freedom.
We hope you enjoy it, as we have. Giroux is an energetic and doggedly optimistic man, who speaks of the importance of imagination to activism, legislation, and citizenship. Please watch.
And then: cure the zombies.
