Andrew Bard Schmookler – a contributor at Atlantic Free Press – and author of a number of books The Parable of the Tribes: The Problem of Power in Social Evolution (University of California Press) and Debating the Good Society: A Quest to Bridge America’s Moral Divide (M.I.T. Press) is interviewed by Craig Barnes, a widely respected, political commentator, lawyer, playwright, and other things, from Santa Fe, New Mexico in this Radio piece from www.anationdeceived.org
This radio show goes into the politics, but also more than the politics– the moral culture, the works of the imagination, the spirit(s) of our times. It talks about where we are today, and it explores where the American system might be heading. At bottom, it suggests a way of understanding the complex organic nature of human societies, and the interplay of forces in guiding how their destiny unfolds through time.
