Challenging The Status Quo With "Revolutionary Love"

We get focused on economic issues like the cost of health care and the impact of inequality, but Michael Lerner says we should focus on bigger concerns. 

Lerner--a rabbi, psychotherapist, and social theorist--says most of us want love and respect and connection.  He lays out the vision in his book Revolutionary Love: A Political Manifesto to Heal and Transform the World.  The book gets into what to ask for, and how. 

Lerner has written before about his concerns about the right wing, but he dings the left as well for its failings.  He visits Ashland next week (November 4th) and visits with The Exchange in advance.
