Allison Fine “Things Worth Fighting For”

Playing for Team Human today, author, social change thought leader, nonprofit founder, and congressional candidate for New York’s 17th district, Allison Fine.

Fine joins Team Human to discuss her platform and decision to run for congress. “We are so broken right now that I actually want to go into the belly of the beast to get us to the next chapter. I think it’s important for us to pay attention to what’s going on now, but not to get stuck in what’s going on now.” Fine and Rushkoff discuss the imperative for the United States to shift to a green economy, the existential threat of automation on labor, breaking down barriers for women’s success, and empowering people with a mobile economy that optimizes for velocity.

In his monologue, Rushkoff looks at how Twitter provides Russia with memetic ammunition to launch propaganda campaigns against the United States.
