May 6, 2011A lot of people calm down as they get older, they get tired and the things they cared passionately about in their youth just seem too unattainable. Ralph Nader, 77, has not reached that point yet.
May 4, 2011May 4, 2011, 7:00PM, Ralph Nader will be joining Ted Turner and Peter Lewis at the New York Public Library to discuss philanthropy for the common good. This event follows the publication of the abridged "Only the Super-Rich Can Save Us!" a book that answers the question "What if?" What if a cadre of super-rich individuals tried to become a driving force in America and decided it was time to fix our government and return the power to the people? Location: the New York Public Library at 42nd St and 5th Ave, New York, NY. To purchase tickets for this event, go to http://www.showclix.com/event/RALPHNADER or call 1.888.71.TICKETS.
July 16, 2010NADER: Now, super-rich people give a lot to charity. This isn't charity. This is justice. This is shift the power. This is going after the causes of hunger, not soup kitchens. And that's going to take a while, that kind of move, because, you know, years ago the rich just gave to their churches, and then they started giving to their own foundations—Ford, Rockefeller, Carnegie. Now we have to move them into the justice arena. JAY: But some people have suggested that this is a bit of you getting pessimistic or giving up on a people's movement. NADER: Well, partly it's a recognition that justice needs money. — from the Real News Network interview with Ralph Nader on "Only the Super-Rich Can Save Us!"
May 26, 2009John R. Talbott is no longer the only oracle in the Seven Stories authorial stable. Ralph Nader, author of the upcoming fictional utopia, "Only the Superrich Can Save Us", successfully predicted the secret meeting of the superrich that took place at Rockefeller University in New York City on May 5th—which eerily resembles the plot of Nader's first work of fiction.
