8 Dec 19: “How America Lost The Winning Recipe” by Alden MunsonAll Events
December 8, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 9:30 am
Alden expresses his opinion that since WW2, numerous changes have occurred that has harmed our society and our national cohesion and diminished the effectiveness and responsiveness of our federal government. These changes include the concentration of wealth and power in the hands of fewer of our citizens (a small elite part of our society), the increased role of “big” money influencing our politics, the increased power of corporations due to court decisions such as “Citizens United”, and the demise of the FCC Fairness Doctrine, enabling falsehoods to be spoken by some in our news media as though they were legitimate news. Alden believes there is no easy solution to these problems, and corrective action will be met by strong, entrenched resistance.
