Interview with Robert Jensen on Capitalism v. Christianity: A Tale of Two Cults

In an interview with Robert Jensen on Capitalism v. Christianity, He challenges the conventional wisdom of many secular and religious folk. University of Texas at Austin, Professor of Journalism, Dr. Robert Jensen argues that faith in the Cult of Capitalism is irrational and that a commitment to a reformulated Cult of Christianity (along with other religious traditions) is rational as we face up to the corrosive effects of modern life on human nature and the destructive effects of modern life on nature. As inequality and ecological collapse intensify, where do we look for values based on solidarity and sustainability?

Miko Peled on “Israel and Gaza: Six Decades of Oppression and Resistance”

Israeli activist Miko Peled - mikopeled.com - speaks about his book, The General’s Son: Journey of an Israeli in Palestine, which is based on his life growing up in a well-known Zionist family. After following in his family’s footsteps and serving in the Israel Defense Forces, Peled withdrew during the 1982 Lebanese invasion and devoted his life to peace activism. "As an Israeli that was raised on the Zionist ideal of a Jewish state," he has written, "I know how hard it is for many Jews and Palestinians to let go of the dream of having a state that is exclusively ‘our own.’ For the good of both nations, the Separation Wall must come down and the Israeli control over the lives of Palestinians must be defied so that a secular democracy where all Israelis and Palestinian live as equals be established in our shared homeland." The event is sponsored by the Interfaith Community for Palestinian Rights - icpr-austin.org - and the UT Palestine Solidarity Committee.
