Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
One of the ways that radical ideas become more mainstream is when those of us who hold them aren t afraid to speak about them. This thought has guided much of journalism professor Robert Jensen s work. His writing and speaking often focus on the news that we live in an economy that is based on the destruction of places all over world. In this 2015 interview, Jensen explains what he calls an unprecedented set of threats to the possibility of ongoing, large-scale, human habitation of the planet.

Jensen takes a critical approach to media and power. Much of his work has focused on pornography, a radical feminist critique of sexuality and men's violence, and white privilege and institutionalized racism. He has written:

If there is to be a decent future, we have to give up on the imperial fantasy of endless power, the capitalist fantasy of endless growth, the technological fantasy of endless comfort we should mourn the world that these systems have created and search for something better. Systems that celebrate domination are death cults, not the basis for societies striving for justice and sustainability.
