Making Contact - Tariq Ali on the Rise of the "Extreme Center"

It’s 2012, the world is calling for change, and in the U.S, another presidential election is looming.   But journalist Tariq Ali says the American public’s so-called ‘choices’ don’t present much in the way of options. On this edition, Ali speaks about the ‘extreme center’ and how Occupy and other emerging social movements are challenging the status quo.

Special thanks to the Lannan Foundation.


Longtime journalist and activist Tariq Ali, author of more than 20 books, including “The Obama Syndrome,” “The Duel: Pakistan on the Flight Path of American Power,” and “Bush in Babylon: The Reconciliation of Iraq.”
