This is the newest Ghion Cast where I discuss the political discourse going on in America and throughout the world. We are in a paradigm where co-victims and fellow sufferers are being set upon each other. We are being led to the gutter by a political system and the punditry that is intentionally injecting animosity in order to perpetuate tribalism and hatred. This Ghion Cast is a discussion of how this is being done to us and how we can over come this left/right and identity based system of repression. As you are watching this video, check out the associated article to this Ghion Cast [read an Open Letter to Fellow Commoners and Co-Sufferers].
Originally from Ethiopia with roots to Atse Tewodros II, Lij Teodrose is a former community organizer whose writing was incorporated into Barack Obama's South Carolina primary victory speech in 2008. He pivoted away from politics and decided to stand for collective justice after experiencing the reality of the forgotten masses. His writing defies conventional wisdom and challenges readers to look outside the constraints of labels and ideologies that serve to splinter the people. Lij Teodrose uses his pen to give a voice to the voiceless and to speak truth to power.
