Featuring Paul Fitzgerald and Elizabeth Gould, co-authors of Invisible History: Afghanistan’s Untold Story; Crossing Zero: The AfPak War at the Turning Point of American Empire; The Valediction: Three Nights of Desmond, and The Valediction: Resurrection.
America’s empire was established in the post-WWII era. We inherited a 19th century European worldview referred to as the Hegelian Dialectic, which is based on the belief that conflict creates history. The dialectic asserted that society could only achieve its highest spiritual consciousness through endless struggles and conflicts between bipolar ideological extremes. Instead of leading to mankind's highest state, the dialectic laid the foundations for totalitarianism.
Today the dialectic can be seen everywhere: democrats against republicans, communists against capitalists, pro-choice versus pro-life. It controls the conflict and the resolution and America’s politics. It has ruined the health of Western civilization by legitimizing the leadership’s unrestrained use of coercion on their citizens in order to stay in power. The only way forward is to abandon the dialectic. We hope you can join us for this critically important discussion. -Paul Fitzgerald and Elizabeth Gould
