By Michael Slate and Henry A Giroux, The Michael Slate Show | Interview
TRANSCRIPT (This transcript has been edited for clarification.)
Michael Slate: Opening up the show I am happy to have as my next guest Henry Giroux. I found Henry’s article, “Henry A. Giroux | Violence, USA: The Warfare State and the Brutalizing of Everyday Life”, on truthout.org.
Henry is one of the founding theorists of critical pedagogy in the US and he serves as the Global TV Network chair in English and Cultural Studies at McMasters University in Hamilton, Ontario.
The article really grabbed my attention because if you are at all concerned, if you are at all awake, in the deepest sense of being awake, and you look at the society we live in you really have got to question, what is going on in the society? How does it link to the terrible things that are going on in the world? How does this link to the fact that the world is a horror? Henry has written an article that I think really digs into this and poses some very important question. So let’s jump into it right away.
