Victor Lee Lewis: The Future of Racial Capitalism: There Is None.

Description: 

A dialogue with philosopher, theologian and healing justice educator Victor Lee Lewis on the social, economic and evolutionary meaning of the "karunavirus-19" epidemic. This moment is the wakeup call that many have been awaiting at least 40 years. It has exposed both the irreducible interdependence of the human family and the earth community, but it also has put an X-Ray on the brokenness of the always radicalized global capital accumulation/class stratification system. The brokenness of the system is in full display, and it will not "unbreak."

It is time to grieve the passing away of what we have known as "normal." Nostalgia for any version of our placid consumer culture is suicidal. This early-stage unraveling of racial capitalism is a potent opportunity to imagine and inhabit a new world within the emerging ruins.
