Dr. Cornel West is professor of the Practice of Public Philosophy at Harvard and a professor emeritus at Princeton. He is the author of several bestselling books, including Democracy Matters, Race Matters and Black Prophetic Fire.
Dr. West reflects on what Trump’s fascist white supremacist coup attempt and assault on the Capitol Building reveals (even more) about how America is a sick society experiencing many catastrophes at the same time. West also shares what it means to prepare oneself to survive and triumph in a time of chaos, tumult, sickness, and struggle for a real democracy and humane society.
Chauncey DeVega counsels that true hope warriors should not have been surprised by Trump’s coup plot and attack on the Capitol Building and multiracial democracy because it was obvious and predictable.
And Chauncey also shares his thoughts on how it feels to be one of the few public voices who for several years has been predicting Trump’s fascist white supremacist coup while the hope peddlers, stenographers of current events, and other professional smart people said that such warnings were “hysterical” and “exaggerated” and “ridiculous”.
