  • Austerity or Grexit: A False Dichotomy

    Greece has shown the world that there is an alternative to austerity: wresting power from the hands of elites, corporations and banks through the reassertion of democratic control.

  • Rehumanizing Gaza

    Reducing Palestinians to heroes capable of resisting Israel's military and failing to see their home as a community seeking connections with the outside world contributes to Gaza's dehumanization.

Truthout Radio with Michael Lerner: the Caring Society

Sunday, 18 November 2012 14:57 By Ted Asregadoo and Rabbi Michael Lerner, Truthout Radio | Radio Interview

Ted Asregadoo from Truthout.org and Rabbi Michael Lerner from Tikkun Magazine discuss an op-ed piece Michael wrote for Truthout -- which highlights the Obama Administration, "The Caring Society," and the Environmental and Social Responsibility Amendment (ESRA) to the US Constitution. Overall though, Michael Lerner makes the case that liberals and progressives need to articulate exactly what they stand for in order to move the country (and the world) away from militarism, self-interested individualism, and greed toward another set of ideals that emphasize compassion, community, and generosity.
