When the controversy broke about then Senator Obama having known Bill Ayers, my first thought was "cool, maybe his is one of us. Since then, it is Obama that has disappointed, not Professor Ayers.
My discussion with him will strive to contemplate, contrast and compare the social movement of the 60's and 70's with what is happening now. I think he can, as someone who has been fully immersed in the former shed light on the latter.
Great effort has been taken to marginalize, even demonize and true socialist with any chance of influencing the dialogue in this country. While active in the advancement of progressive education, that that alone is considered too "radical" for the "educational industry" speaks volumes about how far right we have been pushed as a Nation.
Today, this nation is under a far more militant resistance against OWS activists than the anti-war activists of the SDS and WU were... I wonder, how will it survive?
I am thrilled an honored to be able to have a conversation with Bill! I am sure we shall all learn much from him.
