Open Source Radio Interviews Donald E. Pease
The conversation caroms off transnational politics, environmentalism, Obama, Herman Melville, C. L. R. James, literary theory and the dreams of Americans.
The Bush Global War on Terror and Obama’s disengagement from that concept is tied to Moby Dick. The work of C. L. R. James analyzing Moby Dick is applied to the Obama phenomenon. The conversation bounces from one thing to another and back again with Obama and the American Dream at the center
This is interview is good antidote to the Obama fatigue besetting media and the minds of many progressives. Obama was a dream candidate, this interview really digs into what that means.
