Ep 38: Talking Revolution, Defending Socialist States

In this first episode of the year I read from a number of pieces calling for revolution, defending what it is, talking about what it takes. Then push back strong against standard American narratives about socialist states and the true nature of Stalin, then finish with how they do democracy better with the example of the recent Cuban constitutional rewrite.
