Program Title: Marc Lamont Hill & Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor - Dismantling the System
Description: Is it starry-eyed to think system change? The calamitous fissures that the current crisis has exposed raises the question of the efficacy of reform, half-measures and tinkering around the edges. Often, even under duress, the system is agile enough to make some concessions while crucially leaving the fundamental structures of power intact. From the outside systems can look invincible and impregnable. Just tell that to Louis the XVI in 1789 or the Czar in 1917 or the Shah of Iran in 1979 or Hosni Mubarak in 2011. The noted writer, Ursula LeGuin reminds us, “We live in capitalism. Its power seems inescapable. So did the divine right of kings. Any human power can be resisted and changed by human beings.”
