Produced by Gary Crabtree and Occupy Now TV
In a previous teach-in, we looked at class and class conflict. Now we turn to ideology, how it relates to our economic system, and how it functions in our daily lives. The politics of foreclosures and the proposed ordinance banning “urban camping” in Denver, which would criminalize homelessness, will serve as case studies. In general, we’ll find that the Occupy movement represents, in practice, a fundamental critique of dominant political and economic ideologies.
This teach-in, part IV of the Occupy Economics series, was led by Chad Kautzer on April 26, 2012. Chad is a member of Occupy Denver’s Education Committee and Foreclosure Resistance Coalition, as well as Assistant Professor of Philosophy and Directory of the Social Justice Minor at the University of Colorado Denver.
