A series of excerpts from a summer talk given to the Ontario Common Front—an effort to build a broad resistance to the policies of Canada’s conservative government—show the zeal and precise theoretical insight of McMaster University professor and American cultural critic Henry Giroux.

“I can’t think of a better way to defuse the possibility among young people of the radical imagination than to place them into so much debt that for the next 20 years, all they can basically think about is paying that debt back,” Giroux says early in the clip in a section called “Student Debt and Generational Welfare.”
