Lecture Corey Dolgon - "Kill it to save it: on democracy and inequality in the US"
Sprache des Titels:
For decades now, American voters have been convinced to support public policies that only benefit those in power. But how do the powerful extract consent from citizens whose own self-interest and collective well-being are constantly denied? And why do so many Americans seem to have given up on quality public education, on safe food and safe streets, on living wages ? even on democracy itself?
In his lecture on the new book "Kill It to Save It", Corey Dolgon lays bare the hypocrisy of contemporary US political discourse, documenting the historical and theoretical trajectory of capitalism's triumph over democracy. He tackles the interconnected issues of globalization, neoliberalism, and declining public institutions, arguing that US citizens now accept reform policies that destroy the public sector ? seemingly in the public interest.
