Scope and content

Item includes a recording of the 56th Couchiching Conference (1987), which includes a discussion featuring Fusé and Black activist Jan Douglass on the World After America Panel. The panel begins at timestamp 00:38:10 and ends at 00:56:00. Fusé talks about his early years as a student studying in the United States in the 1950s and his eventual disillusionment with the country due to what he perceived to be its “moral and visionary decay” from the late 1960s onward, where the pursuit of “freedom” and “Individual pleasure” led to “excessive individualism.” Fusé also discusses the possible causes of higher suicide rates in Canada (14% in 1987) compared to the United States (12% in 1987).
