Cracks in the Edifice

Every spring in New York City, the Left Forum conference brings together intellectuals and activists to address urgent issues and build a stronger political Left movement in the United States.


This year, organizers and thinkers looked at the ongoing war in Iraq… the impending economic recession… and the devastating results of free trade policies worldwide. Participants at Left Forum identified these issues as more than just failings of the current administration. But instead, as cracks in what they call "the edifice" of U.S. Empire.


On this audio, you’ll hear from Adam Hochschild and Naomi Klein at the Left Forum conference. 


Adam Hochschild is author and lecturer at UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism.


Naomi Klein is author, journalist and syndicated-columnist.
