Episode 120: Worker Party Independence Day

Last time I talked about the election system and hinted at reform gridlock, this time I talk about class politics and how they require a class based party. 3rd Party arguments are made again but this time with more depth. I revisit the debate on working with right populists over liberals; a debrief from Green Candidate Hawkins on progressive surrender along with his take on working class nonvoters. Then a case of a fallen DSA Alderman in Chicago. In the 2nd half I read a Piece about how a insiders wanting to do good need a strong outsider movement; and cover a Marxist response to all manner of Dem entry arguments.
