Henry David Thoreau, Thomas Paine and Martin Luther King Jr., the three greatest truth-sayers of US history, stood almost alone in their time with tremendous eloquence against the storms of cultural misinformation, prejudice and ignorance. In this spirit, Dr. Giroux is defiantly explaining, against the grain, what’s really going on right now, and doing so quite undeniably. He’s almost completely off the mainstream’s grid, partly due to his harsh exposé of how corporations operate in a world where they have now gained total control. In this interview, I aimed to bridge the gap between the in-depth interviews Henry normally does with a more casual, straightforward conversation.
