Change Agent Frances Moore Lappe on Her New Book, EcoMind; Chew Reviews “TTSS”




Visionary author Frances Moore Lappe talks about her new book, EcoMind: Changing the Way We Think, to Create the World We Want.  Gary Chew reviews the new film, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.Lappe, known as Frankee, wrote the seminal Diet for a Small Planet, which has sold more than 3 million copies.  She is inspiring and optimistic, and calls herself a “possibilist”.  We talk about the setbacks for progressives under Obama, the power and impact of the Occupy movement.  We also talk about the ambient fear in America today, and how it affects us in unconscious ways.  In her book, she takes today’s very real problems, and approaches them with the frame of ecosystems, stressing the interdependence that is missing from free-market world views.  Visit her website here.
