Video: Five Things Everyone Should Know About the Corporate Influence on Politics

October 21, 2012 in Teach-In

In this teach-in Chad Kautzer discusses not only the direct influence corporations have on elections (money), but also more insidious forms of corporate influence on politics through culture, media, and academia which, he says, “subtly deform our sense of self and political imagination.” The final part of the teach-in is a critique of the proposed boycott of the 2012 elections and a more general discussion of how electoral politics and social movements interact.
