Ep 42: Moving Forward Means Moving Left

This edition of the show takes us on a look at the end of the liberal system and the need for a new progressive one both at home and abroad. I then take a look at two examples of activism that lay bare the idea that small stuff can be taken on legally; but big problems not so much. I finish with how Americans talk about socialism with a piece about redbaiting, and then look at how deep it goes with a socialist writer and activist who redbaits himself (to an extent).
