These two videos are must see! Please share them. In the first, though, Professor Wolff does misspeak. He says, in reference to recent general strikes in Europe, something to the effect that 6 million American never marched about anything.
Actually, and the point is raised in a different context by Bill McKibben in the second video, more than 20 million Americans demonstrated on the first Earth Day. As a result we the people got a Clean Air Act and Clean Water Act. Lobbyists for the banks and the US Chamber of Commerce have bribed lawmakers every year since to undo those crucial laws a little bit at a time.
Be that as it may, the rest of Professor Wolff's talk is crucial to undersatanding what's really happening with the American economy and happening to the American worker. The video is 2 hours long, and well worth every minute of your time.
Bill McKibben speaks for 15 minutes before a crowd of young people. It is another must see, if you care about what is happening to our climate. The next time you tune in a 24 hour new cable channel -- kick in the screen.
