World-renowned author Michael Parenti will speak on the "Conspiracy of Empire". Michael Parenti invites us to think differently about conspiracy and "conspiracy theory," keeping in mind that much of politics is about the rational manipulation of irrational symbols. He argues that deception is at the core of imperial leadership, that US policy is not "foolish" or "inept" but quite successful in advancing America's interests, the interests of the America belonging to the 1%, that is. Michael Parenti is a internationally known award winning author and lecturer. He is one of the nation’s leading progressive political analysts. His highly informative and entertaining books and talks have reached a wide range of audiences in North America and abroad. His most recent book is entitled "The Face of Imperialism" Suggested Donation $15-20 Fundraiser for San Jose Peace and Justice Center
