Prolific journalist and cultural critic Marc Cooper, a contributing editor to The Nation and formerly the writer of the LA Weekly‘s popular “Dissonance” column, is joined by Norman M. Klein and Martín Plot for a provocative discussion about shifting cultural patterns in a time of crises global and local. Is our long-spluttering model of government nearing the end of the line? Is the Golden State now the Failed State? Is broken government the new currency of globalization? Is 24-hour news, with its attendant twitter and scream, in a state of low-grade nervous breakdown? Cooper is a visiting professor of journalism at the USC Annenberg School for Communication. His books include Pinochet and Me: A Chilean Anti-Memoir and Roll Over Che Guevara: Travels of a Radical Reporter.
