Amy Goodman Interviews Robert Reich About Life, The Universe And Everything His New Film

Robert Reich, former Labor Secretary under Bill Clinton and current professor at Berkeley, speaks about the new film (opens 9/27) to which he contributed much of the content, Inequality For All. Here's the interview. It's about an hour long, and if you've ever been involved in any aspect of a social and economic justice movement, that hour will pass very quickly:

When I was a young man, I thought (as doubtless you also thought, if you're bothering to read this blog) that we were going to save the world, or at least the nation, from environmental depredation and gross economic injustice. Not only has our good head start on those twin movements vanished, we... the nation and the human world... are now in the worst shape we have ever been. What went wrong, and what, if anything, can be done?

Robert Reich, in his new film INEQUALITY FOR ALL: A Passionate Argument on Behalf of the Middle Class, attempts to address those questions. If you're lucky, you live in a city in which the film is opening (Austin is one; Dallas is one... Houston is not). If not, maybe you can persuade a friend with a large living room to host a showing. I am fairly certain your time and money will be well-spent.
