What is FAR enough? A talk and book event featuring Denis Rancourt.

When: Tues, Feb 26 at 7:00pm

Where: The Grad Club

RSVP on Facebook

“Change occurs when people risk as much as they need to. […] The question is not “What is too far?” but rather “What is far enough?”

Are anti-racist speech codes merely a fig leaf for entrenched racism? Are socioeconomic hierarchies public health threat number one? Is global warming just a profitable distraction from real environmental risks? What is the difference between a true intellectual and a service intellectual? Is the left-wing fetishism of non-violence simply an assent to the state’s monopoly on force?

Author Denis Rancourt asks these questions and more in his new book, “Hierarchy and free expression in the fight against racism. Drawing on the work of Paulo Freire, Jeff Schmidt, and Malcom X, and on his own experience as an activist inside the academic system, the answers he finds challenge dogmas on both left and right, challenging readers to question their beliefs, and pursue their own personal liberation … the first, crucial step in the struggle for social justice.

“Kick ass, don’t kiss it.” – Denis Rancourt

Whatever your opinion is, bring it and an opinionated friend? The event will be interactive and will illustrate some of the ideas in the book.
