We just wanted to thank you for joining us at our Girl Rising meetup last Saturday. We hope you found the film as moving as we did! If you want to join our mailing list, volunteer with us, or donate, head to http://iirr.org/. Or you can email [masked] for more information!
Jason, I have not met the professor in question. I am beginning to explore my democratic socialism, as I do feel like it's the closest political philosophy I adhere to. I see that the commentator below me recommends Ashokan as a place for good retreats. I concur, and would also say, if you're looking in that area, consider Frost Valley www.frostvalley.org. Cheers, Brendan
Nice meeting you, too. Jason. Hopefully the new BiRequest schedule will enable you to attend again.
That's fantastic that you're a Grad Center grad! Yes, it would be great if you could get me in touch with the students you mentioned.
I know how lucky I was to have Profs Miliband & FF Piven at CUNY. They could have taught anywhere, but taught working class students like myself. Miliband emphasized to me that ultimately, he & Poulantzas agreed: at some conjunctions, the state in capitalist society is fully dominated by the haute bourgeois/military elite (Instrumentalism), at others maintenance of capitalist rule requires the hegemonic faction of capitalism to ally itself in a ruling bloc with a mass base (Structuralism).
my name is Fabiola and I belong to the compass cultural association meet up group and I see that you might also be interested in consciousness development, I have been to several of the compass meetup sessions and some really extraordinary ideas were shared. I thought you might be interested in them also. Our next meet up will be on Tuesday July 13th. http://www.meetup.com/The-Compass-Cul...
Hope to see you there!
Hey Jason - it goes well; looking forward to the upcoming potluck. How's it going for you?
