Cornel West on Principles & Values



I want to reintroduce America to the best of itself

I am running for truth and justice and as a candidate for president of the United States in the Green Party. I want to reintroduce America to the best of itself-- the dignity, courage, and creativity of precious everyday people. Join our movement for priceless poor and working people of all colors here and abroad.

America is one of the most anti-intellectual cultures

America is one of the most anti-intellectual cultures in the history of the modern world. Americans love intelligence that generates profits, but they don't appreciate intellect that evaluates the context under which the profits are made and the ways in which that greed can generate unbelievable social misery in terms of how the workplace is structured, in terms of how society as a whole is structured, with patriarchy and white supremacy and xenophobia and transphobia, and so on.

Everybody could gain by having a relationship with Jesus

As a Christian, I think everybody could gain much by having a relationship with Jesus. But I think the left can teach Christians like myself very much in terms of their willingness to speak in a courageous way to the "least of these," to echo the 25th chapter of Matthew: the poor, the orphan, the widow, the exploited. They've done a much better job than most churches, synagogues, temples, and mosques.
