David Feldman Show: Ralph Nader’s State of The Union

ralph nader

Ralph Nader for the hour. Ralph’s new book is Told You So: The Big Book of Weekly Columns.

“What sets Ralph Nader apart is that he has moved beyond social criticism to effective political action.”—The New York Times

“Nader is at his polemical best inveighing against specific issues from the skyrocketing costs of college education to the Keystone XL pipeline to new traffic safety concerns that harken back to his pivotal game-changing 1965 book, Unsafe at Any Speed. Admirers of Nader will find much to savor here as will anyone seeking to understand the mind of a man who singlehandedly sparked a new era of citizen-driven political and consumer activism.” —Publishers Weekly

From the jacket, “The column is the most natural literary form for a citizen’s advocate, and Ralph Nader may be its most robust and forceful practitioner. The Big Book of Ralph Nader Columns presents a panoramic portrait of the problems confronting our society and provides examples of the many actions an organized citizenry could and should take to create a more just and environmentally sustainable world. Drawing on decades of experience, Nader’s columns document the consequences of concentrated corporate power; threats to our food, water and air; the corrosive effect of commercialism on our children; the dismantling of worker rights; and the attacks on our civil rights and civil liberties. Nader also offers concrete suggestions to spark citizen action and achieve social change.”

Also with us is Steve Skrovan, the director of An Unreasonable Man, the documentary about Mr. Nader, and KPFK Program Director Alan Minsky.

    That was really great – thanks for getting Nader to check in, I enjoyed that very much. I try to stay objective when listening to politicians and activists and while I don’t agree with everything Nader says, his ideas are thought always thought-provoking and well researched, and this exchange with him was galvanizing. It was a real pleasure, you guys did a great job.
