Episode Description
Saturday, Nov 23, 2013 - 5:00 PM    "Zombie Politics and Casino Capitalism" In his book Zombie Politics and Culture in the Age of Casino Capitalism, author and scholar Henry Giroux connects the dots, threading together ideas and experiences to prove his theory that our current system is informed by a "machinery of social and civil death" that chills "any vestige of a robust democracy." This week on Moyers &Company (check local listings), Giroux explains that such a machine turns people into zombies - "people who are basically so caught up with surviving that they become like the walking dead - they lose their sense of agency, they lose their homes, they lose their jobs." What's more, Giroux points out, the system that creates this vacuum has little to do with expanding the meaning and the substance of democracy itself. D
