"Watch Julian Casablancas Talk Government Corruption with Henry Giroux" - Video Interview
In the video, Casablancas interviews Giroux for a wide-ranging conversation that touches on topics including banks' control over government, why democracy is an illusion, deceptive journalism and the dangers of speaking truth to power.
The Strokes frontman also opens up about the roots of his own political awakening and his struggle to spread the word to the uninformed: "The burden is they don't understand the burden," he says. "I grew up thinking, 'Democracy, we solved all those problems; they're old problems and we fixed it.' And frankly it's hard to face that. It's depressing … The struggle is whether or not you understand that there is a struggle going on."

"On Violence, Neoliberalism, and the Hallucinatory Anti-Politics of the Trump Era."
-This Is Hell!
Henry A. Giroux appears on an episode of the This Is Hell! podcast talking bout the subject of his forthcoming book from City Lights: how violence seeped from America's background into the foreground of our psychology, robbing our politics of solidarity, our economy of morality, and our language of meaning and memory - and why the left must turn beyond (and against) our current political leaders, to reclaim collectivity and justice for the public, and to rally against not just this Trump, but all the Trumps to come.

"Is Donald Trump Actually a Fascist?"
Henry A. Giroux is quoted in this article examining Donald Trump's fascist remarks before the 2016 election cycle.
"The argument about whether Trump is a fascist or not is really a diversion," says Henry Giroux of McMaster University, author of America at War With Itself. “He is an authoritarian who terribly threatens democracy.” He adds, “Trump is the result of a long series of attacks on democracy, and now the real divide is between those who do and don’t believe in democracy.”
