Henry Giroux: Is the market mentality so powerful and taken for granted that public imagination cannot resist? Educated hope recognizes problems without romanticizing. Ideas matter and offer framework to allow us to be critical and literate. Casino capitalism believes it has to control everything. Only instrumental reason is promoted while justice cares for the other.

This week on Moyers & Company, author and scholar Henry Giroux explains how our political system has turned people into zombies - "people who are basically so caught up with surviving that they become like the walking dead — they lose their sense of agency, they lose their homes, they lose their jobs."

Henry Giroux teaches at McMasters University and is the author of the new "Zombie Politics and the Violence of Organized Forgetting."
