We are in the midst of an epoch paradigm shift from inequality to solidarity, according to Professor Matthaei. Capitalism is a hybrid system, caught in between the two.  It was built on a foundation of hierarchy and domination, but also on a commitment to equal rights and the opportunity to advance.  This contradiction  has birthed four great, increasingly interconnected social movements--anti-classist, anti-racist, feminist, and ecology--which are deconstructing inequality and creating new, solidarity forms of social life.  These include practices and institutions based on socially responsible agency, cooperation and sustainability.  Professor Matthaei will describe multiple ways that each of us can participate in this epoch shift.
