    Join publisher of Harper’s Magazine John R. MacArthur and journalist and author Thomas Frank for a discussion of the current election season, President Obama’s first term, and whether truly progressive change is achievable in the current political climate.

     


     

    John R. MacArthur is the president and publisher of Harper’s Magazine, award-winning journalist, and   author of the acclaimed books The Selling of Free Trade: NAFTA, Washington, and the Subversion of American Democracy, and Second Front: Censorship and Propaganda in the Gulf War. In his new book The Outrageous Barriers to Democracy in America, Mac Arthur argues that the American political system is rigged to keep the “mock” in “democracy,” sparing neither side of the political spectrum in a devastating exposé of the entrenched elites.

     

    Thomas Frank is author of Pity the Billionaire, The Wrecking Crew, What’s the Matter with Kansas?, and One Market Under God. A former opinion columnist for the Wall Street Journal, Frank is founding editor of The Baffler and a monthly columnist for Harper’s.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
