SRJC to examine politics in America

Is there a crisis in American politics today? To what extent do large corporations influence politics? These questions and more will be discussed as part of a panel presentation, “democracy for the few? The 1992 campaign and the Hidden Election,” being held Monday, Oct. 26 at Santa Rosa junior college.

The discussion begins at noon in Newman Auditorium, Emeritus Hall and will be broadcast live on channel 53, Post-Newsweek Cable. Admission is free.

SRJC Social Science instructors, Jeanette Ben Farhat, Marty Bennett and Gus P’Manolis will explore what they see as the crisis in the present political system, the impact of growing class polarization and economic inequality on American political parties and whether or not the two-party system is obsolete.

Call SRJC Community Education Department at 527-4371 for more information.
