This talk was recorded on October 18, 2016, at City Lights Books in San Francisco – just three weeks before election day. Nader talked about his new book – published by City Lights under the title ‘Breaking Through Power – it’s easier than we think”. From the advance reviews we knew that he was not going to advocate for any party, blue, red or green – in spite of his own former affiliation with the Green Party – and not even for Sanders in particular. He has a specific plan how to take power ourselves and apply it directly to Congress without the mediation or intervention of any party.
In his book and talk Nader explains how to create a coherent movement that is specific it its goals, can unite left and right and takes power on a national scale.
