FEATURING RABBI MICHAEL LERNER – The idea of socialism as an alternative to capitalism is emerging as a popular one in the US. Our current capitalist world order has failed to meet the needs of most people and has fueled a climate crisis in a thirst for profits. But what kind of political system can really deliver the promises of a socialist utopia? Writing in a new book called Revolutionary Love, long-time political activist and leader Rabbi Michael Lerner paints a picture of a leftist vision based on empathy, community, and respect – what he calls “love infused” socialism.
