Bad Boy — Bill Ayers
Cindy welcomes that most famous ex-Weatherman poster boy of opposition to war: Bill Ayers - beloved by all launderies who wash out conservative underwear; if only for creating so many stains for them to eradicate. Today Dr. Bill Ayers is a Distinguished Professor of Education at the University of Illinois at Chicago. He is also the author of “To Teach: The Journey, In Comics,” which uses the comic book format to reach out to teachers. He truly is a highly innovative expert in education, with lots to say – although not always conformist in content. Cindy and Dr. Ayers discuss some of those non-conformist thoughts in a perfectly delightful interview. They put opposition to this “war” into the historical context of the Vietnam war, and come away with the conclusion that we must build a real, living, anti-war movement in our country, and discuss how. The key is people’s consciousness. And the way to build that? Talk to people. Cindy and Bill discuss the rhythm of resistance. They have much to discuss, and plenty worth listening to.
This interview is from July 4, 2010.
