Long-Time activist, educator and author BILL AYERS joins us in Solartopia to talk about his new book DEMAND THE IMPOSSIBLE: A RADICAL MANIFESTO and much else about our current American miasma.
Bill has spent a lifetime working to make education available and democratic for the mainstream American public. Meaningful learning is “a right, not a product,” he says. He makes clear that eating education as a business guarantees that the privileged few will prosper at the expense of the many.
Bill also discusses his opinions on voting for the Green Party in a non-swing state, and on how to make long-term social change in a nation that’s on the brink of collapse. We barely scratch the surface of Bill’s amazingly interesting and productive life. But what we cover in this jam-packed hour is worth every minute.
