Beyond Politics as Usual

Program #NADR005. Recorded in Los Angeles, CA on August 19, 1996.

Two out of three Americans say they are fed up with politics as usual as represented by the traditional parties. In 1996, Ralph Nader accepted the nomination of the Green Party to run for President. He gave one of the most memorable and dynamic acceptance speeches in memory.

Speaker(s):

Ralph Nader

Ralph Nader, a legendary figure, has spent a lifetime fighting on behalf of ordinary people. The Atlantic named him one of the hundred most influential figures in U.S. history.  Founder of Public Citizen, he is a long-time advocate for consumer safety and workers' rights. He rose to fame in the 1960s when he took on General Motors and its unsafe Corvair car. His 1965 book Unsafe At Any Speed not only created a sensation but also was instrumental in the enactment of the Motor Vehicle Safety Act. His efforts helped create the Environmental Protection Agency. He has exposed the misdeeds of the corporate sector as well as of the political system. In recent years he has led the struggles around the WTO, corporate welfare, and single payer health care. He is the author of numerous books including Breaking Through Power and To the Ramparts.
