The Big Lie of Left/Right Politics

Cat Zavis -- Executive Director of Spiritual Progressives, a group of multi-faith and no faith individuals that are doing more than just wishing for a world based on hope and mutual respect but in fact planning how to get there. Cat outlines the Global Marshal Plan on how to remake the world, as well as commenting further on the relationship between spirituality and activism.
