9780865714748: A Time for Choices: Deep Dialogues for Deep Democracy (A New Dimensions Book)

Events of the last 12 months have led to a crisis in American values. With the passage of the so-called Patriot Act, the War Powers Act, and the presidential edict establishing military tribunals, with Congress and the major mass media championing the government party line, civil liberties and the founding democratic principles of the United States of America are in grave jeopardy. Dissent and disagreement have become "unpatriotic" and "un-American."

A Time for Choices addresses these contemporary challenges to democracy through dialogues that expand the field of possibilities with the views of leading thinkers, educators, political analysts, activists, social innovators, clergy, journalists, philosophers, and spiritual teachers. These are the voices of the fourth branch of government, the bedrock of American democracy-the people-speaking out and questioning policy. The dialogues are grouped in nine sections and include:

Reflections on 9-11: Terry Tempest Williams and Robert Fuller

What is Democracy: Kevin Danaher and Lynne Twist

The Media is the Message: Paul Hawken, Anita Roddick, and Norman Solomon

Giving Peace a Voice: Howard Zinn and Susan Griffin

The Search for Security: William McDonough and John Mohawk

The People - The 4th Branch of Government: Noam Chomsky and Amy Goodman

The Spiritual Dimension: Joanna Macy and Thomas Moore

Other Voices: As'ad Abukhalil and Tahmeena Farval

Visions of the Future: Vicki Robin and Jean Houston

The book will appeal to all seeking to understand the deeper roots of the crises facing the United States.
