    Consequences of Capitalism – 13 October 2021 – Audio

    Recorded on YouTube on 13 October 2021.



    Join Noam Chomsky for a talk, then in conversation with E. Tammy Kim on the brutal realities laid bare by the COVID-19 pandemic—and the urgent need for an alternative to capitalism.

    Nick Estes put recent headlines surrounding the discovery of mass graves of Native children at Canadian residential schools into historical context. The removal of Indigenous children from their communities and families has a long genocidal legacy that persists today, well beyond the boarding school era in Canada and the United States. The attack on Indigenous children is an attack on Indigenous sovereignty and land, and there is an urgency to uphold protections that are under assault by the right-wing, such as the Indian Child Welfare Act. He was joined in conversation with Rebecca Nagle after giving his presentation.

W.S. Merwin

To have been able to hear Merwin over years during which he has continued to be"a carrier the ladders" has been a gift for me and the poetic commons.

Thank you Bill, and to the Lanan Foundation. Nancy Ryan, Tres Orejas, Taos, N.M.
