No matter how dismal the candidates may be, every US presidential election is made consequential by our prolonged crises of environment, economy, and peace... 

In a surreal political climate where corporations are endowed with the rights of people and people are stripped of the their rights, three distinguished activist thinkers and scholars come together to help us think through the election results and how we should be responding. 

Noam Chomsky, renowned linguist and political philosopher, Vijay Prashad, the incisive commentator and analyst of global politics and chronicler of the "Darker Nations," join the Iranian-born, international relations scholar, feminist and theorist of revolutions, Val Moghadam in a globally-televised evening of conversation and reflection at the Old South Church (http://goo.gl/maps/gHmn1) on Thursday, November 8, 2012, at 7:00 p.m.

"Unpeoples" is term from scholar Mark Curtis's (2008) analysis of foreign policy, "Unpeople – those whose lives are deemed worthless, expendable in the pursuit of power and commercial gain."
