Duration: 
1:06:53

Naomi Wolf, Author, The Beauty Myth and The End of America
In conversation with Katharine Mieszkowski, Senior Writer, Salon

Human micro-chipping, FBI e-mail tracking or even just Googling yourself might make you murmur that America is becoming an Orwellian dystopia. But recently, with revelations of warrantless wiretapping, secret prisons, and the like, some people fear the hyperbole is becoming reality. In a time of increasing secrecy and fear, author and occasional Democratic political advisor Wolf dares to address the prospect of what she believes may be an increasingly fascist government. Wolf challenges what she perceives as affronts to freedom and how we can break free to protect our humanistic rights.
