In this latest episode of 'The Openist,' Chris is joined by the towering public intellectual and human rights activist Cornel West, an Honorary Board Member of the nonprofit Democracy Cafe (democracycafe.org) of which Chris serves as Executive Director. To agree or disagree with Brother West is almost beside the point; he aspires to make us think deeply, critically, compassionately. Chris and Dr. West chart their way through sundry timely and timeless issues that have to do with maintaining and evolving open hearts, open minds, open societies in times of rising absolutism and fundamentalism. Brother West lauded Democracy Cafe's efforts to make our world more thoughtful, understanding and lovable -- he is wowed by what we accomplish with no philanthropic funding but with several generous individual donors. He urged Chris to hurry and finish up his newest book, so he could write the forward to it. Listen in to Cornel West. And as an extra, here is a link to a video interview with Brother West: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gteKBGD5w_4&feature=youtu.be
