Making Contact – Tariq Ali on the Rise of the “Extreme Center”

It’s 2012, the world is calling for change, and in the U.S, another presidential election is looming.   But journalist Tariq Ali says the American public’s so-called ‘choices’ don’t present much in the way of options. On this edition, Ali speaks about the ‘extreme center’ and how Occupy and other emerging social movements are challenging the status quo.
