On Sunday evening at 6 pm EST, we will discussing THE CAUSE by Eric Alterman and Kevin Mattson. I have invited two national leaders of the independent movement as discussants.
Harry Kresky is an attorney and the country’s leading expert on nonpartisan political reform.
Dr. Omar Ali is a historian and professor of African American studies at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.
If you have not read the whole book, no worries. Join the conversation, I think you will find it quite fascinating. I asked Harry Kresky if there was one chapter he would recommend. Here’s what he said:
“A chapter to read is Chapter 5, “The Best Years of Our Lives.” It sets the mold for the book by revealing (perhaps inadvertently) that liberalism is best understood as a reaction formation to communism and, later, during the period of the 60’s and 70’s, to other forms of radical politics. Perhaps the root cause of liberalism’s demise is that when the Soviet Union fell and theU.S. won the “cold war,” liberalism lost its raison d’etre.”
Here is the call in information for Sunday’s 6 pm Call:
Call 712 432-3066
Look forward to speaking together! And come back by tomorrow for some of Dr. Ali’s thoughts about The Cause.
