MSNBC host Rachel Maddow believes our culture has become deeply militarized, and wonders: Just how did this come to seem normal? From the Vietnam War to Reagan’s “gunslinging” presidency and the global “war on terror,” Maddow, author of Drift, explores how the national-security sector has shape-shifted and grown—favoring the priorities of the war machine over those of civilian life—to the point of financially unsustainability, a confused mission, and a weaker and less secure country. Maddow will be interviewed on stage by two-time Pulitzer-winning editorial cartoonist and columnist David Horsey, of the Los Angeles Times (and formerly Seattle Post-Intelligencer). Presented by the Town Hall Center for Civic Life with University Book Store. Series media sponsorship provided by PubliCola. Series supported by The Boeing Company Charitable Trust and the RealNetworks Foundation.
