The Good Society

Rob Riemen
September 7, 2007
Rob Riemen says American society is far more concerned with money and entertainment than truth and beauty. The Nexus Institute CEO says that this kind of anti-intellectual culture is one that starves young people of opportunities to think critically and feeds religious and secular fundamentalism. Rob Riemen answered the question "what is a good society" in a speech at this summer's Aspen Ideas Festival.
