It’s a common refrain among activists: we could get so much more done if only we were working together. The devolution of coherent movements into bickering splinter groups is so common, it’s become a cliche. Aaron Yarmel is a Ph.D. student in philosophy at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. His research focuses on political philosophy and ethics as it applies to activist movements, and he is the co-founder of Madison Public Philosophy. He’s recently written about the divergent groups working for animal rights, and the lessons to be learned from the American Civil Rights movement. Aaron Yarmel joins Eight O’Clock Buzz host Brian Standing in the studio.
