Event LocationBerkeley, California
Event DescriptionSelections from an event called 'The End of Hope' that took place on September 9th, 2018 at Zaytuna College in Berkeley, California. 1. The End of Hope 0:00 2. Hope Is Not Rational 12:52 3. Dehumanized to Rehumanized 18:52 4. "Shut Off These Electronic Hallucinations" 21:20 Description from the event: America, says Pulitzer Prize­-winning writer Chris Hedges in his new book America: The Farewell Tour, is convulsed by an array of pathologies—the opioid crisis, pervasive economic distress, our pornified culture, a plague of suicides, and more—that have arisen out of profound hopelessness, a bitter despair, and a civil society that has ceased to function. In the face of such devastation, what remains of hope? And, as human beings, do we possess the capacity within ourselves to transcend our circumstances? A thought-provoking conversation with Chris Hedges, Zaid Shakir, and Hamza Yusuf about hope, despair, and the future of our nation.
