Third Reading Group: “‘No Is Not Enough’ by Naomi Klein”
February 12 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm UTC-5
Join us for a reading group on the latest book by acclaimed journalist and activist Naomi Klein. To quote the book description:
“Donald Trump’s takeover of the White House is a dangerous escalation in a world of cascading crises. His reckless agenda—including a corporate coup in government, aggressive scapegoating and warmongering, and sweeping aside climate science to set off a fossil fuel frenzy—will generate waves of disasters and shocks to the economy, national security, and the environment. Acclaimed journalist, activist, and bestselling author Naomi Klein has spent two decades studying political shocks, climate change, and “brand bullies.” From this unique perspective, she argues that Trump is not an aberration but a logical extension of the worst, most dangerous trends of the past half-century—the very conditions that have unleashed a rising tide of white nationalism the world over. It is not enough, she tells us, to merely resist, to say “no.” Our historical moment demands more: a credible and inspiring “yes,” a roadmap to reclaiming the populist ground from those who would divide us—one that sets a bold course for winning the fair and caring world we want and need.
In this session we will be discussing Part 3. You can still join in on this discussion without having attended previous discussions. The last discussion group for part 4 can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/events/171805660212882
