Corey Dolgon, Professor of Sociology, Stonehill College
Professor Dolgon will talk about his new book, "Kill It to Save It: An Autopsy of Capitalism's Triumph over Democracy"
For decades now, American voters have been convinced to support public policies that only benefit those in power. But how do the powerful extract consent from citizens whose own self-interest and collective well-being are constantly denied? And why do so many Americans seem to have given up on quality public education, safe food, safe streets, and living wages -- even on democracy itself? This talk will document the historical and theoretical trajectory of capitalism's triumph over democracy.
