This episode of E Hana Kakou features a spirited discussion between two long-time friends and philosophical sparring partners. Dr. Matt Lopresti is a professor of philosophy and a candidate for the Hawaii House of Representatives.  He and  host Dr. Keli’i Akina have shared discussion and debate since their days together as fellow Ph.D. students.  In this video, the two intellectual activists share their respective views on politics, the economy, social justice, and other matters.  Although neither puts much stock in labels, Lopresti is proud to represent a socially progressive and liberal point of view, while Akina, president of Grassroot Institute, represents what has been called a conservative to libertarian perspective.
