“Daniel in the Lions’ Den.” (Image: Sir Peter Paul Rubens) Cultural critic Henry Giroux explains how the harsh, arbitrary nature of life in the US is actually a feature of our political and social setting, what distinguishes neoliberalism from classical liberalism and capitalism, and why Donald Trump’s unlikely political success represents a fundamental poison in our society. Giroux is author of the new City Lights Press book Disposable Futures: The Seduction of Violence in the Age of Spectacle. He holds the Global Television Network Chair in English and Cultural Studies.
