Bill Ayers, “Demand the Impossible!” | The Big Picture RT

Thom Hartmann quotes Franklin Delano Roosevelt in the introduction to his interview with radical left activist Bill Ayers.

“The liberty of democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than the democratic state itself. That in its essence is fascism: ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or any controlling private power.” ~ Franklin Delano Roosevelt

Donald Trump ran a presidential campaign from a platform of ideas that rest on the slippery slope of fascism. How do we resist descending into a fascist state? Bill Ayers offers history, ideas, and inspiration for today’s urgently needed movement-makers.

“Thom talks to activist and educator Bill Ayers about protests, social movements and the American dream in today’s society. They also discuss policies of the incoming Trump administration, and Ayers’ book “Demand the Impossible!” ~ The Big Picture RT


Bill Ayers new book: Demand the Impossible!: A Radical Manifesto

From Amazon: “In an era defined by mass incarceration, endless war, economic crisis, catastrophic environmental destruction, and a political system offering more of the same, radical social transformation has never been more urgent—or seemed more remote.

A manifesto for movement-makers in extraordinary times, Demand the Impossible! urges us to imagine a world beyond what this rotten system would have us believe is possible.

In critiquing the world around us, insurgent educator and activist Bill Ayers uncovers cracks in that system, raising the horizons for radical change, and envisioning strategies for building the movement we need to make a world worth living in.”

    Thanks for sharing, JoAnn. I’ve ordered my copy.
    According to Ayers, real change comes from mobilized ground movements. We have to get organized and to keep it real.
