Cultural Movements: Creating Change (MP3 download)
By Yaron Brook and Onkar Ghate
Among the cultural forces in ascendancy over the last few decades are "free" markets and the resulting globalization; environmentalism; and religion. These three lectures examine the rise of global markets, environmentalism and religion in the late-twentieth and early-twenty-first centuries. The lectures address questions such as: What steps did these movements take to gain their success? How were they organized? What did they count on? What do they seem to be planning for the future?
Having examined these movements, Dr. Brook and Dr. Ghate extract what we can learn from them in regard to changing a culture. How can we as a movement organize and work most effectively to bring about the kind of world Ayn Rand's philosophy equips us to create?
This course was recorded at the 2008 Objectivist Summer Conference in Newport Beach, CA.
