Episode 60: What Does Democracy Look Like?
This time I do a deep dive into Direct Democracy, starting with some musing and a look at the DSA convention and the politics there. The on to policies for more and better local democracy, what the long goal for a movement might be, and a real life application of leftist revolutionary struggle with news from the Zapatistas. There’s a lot I didn’t get to, so expect a continuation.
