Latin waves host Sylvia Richardson speaks with Robert Jensen about our “dead culture” of state Fundamentalism.

Jensen says that absolute beliefs that ignore life’s complexities are used to support the politics of empire. He gives examples of these, including market fundamentalism (capitalism), moral fundamentalism (of spreading ‘democracy’), or technological fundamentalism – the belief that technology will solve the environmental problems it causes.
