Joining hosts Dennis McCuistion and Jim Falk are Tom Shachtman, writer, filmmaker, and the author of American Iconoclast: The Life and Times of Eric Hoffer, and Dr. Rory McVeigh, Chair of the Department of Sociology, Notre Dame University.
Using Hoffer’s work as a base, the conversation focuses on social/ mass movements and the impact they have had on cultures past and present.
Some would say that mass movements today seem to be more political and divisive yet is that really true when compared with past movements; communism, fascism, Islamism, and others?
Our guests also examine the personalities of those who are drawn to these movements and why so many are fanatical in nature.
