"What's It Gonna Take to Get the World We Need?"

Professor Dennis Loo, Cal Poly Pomona, talks about the nature of the State and how it functions in Capitalist Society, arguing that the defining characteristic of the State is the monopolization on the legitimate use of force. Loo then explores the character of the modern imperial State, its embrace of the so-called War on Terror and what it means for those who want to change the world.

Andy Zee, Revolution Books/NYC and Revolution Newspaper, continues the conversation about the Occupy Movement and the big questions it confronts today, including how it relates to a movement for revolution and which way forward.

Joe Stern, Alex Morris & Anne Gee Byrd, Producer & Actors, "All My Sons," discuss the unique multi-national/multi-ethnic production and casting of the play "All My Sons", Arthur Miller's exploration of how capitalism eats up all human dignity, compassion and heart - twisting minds and turning good people into monsters.
