Description

The failures of liberal half measures, compromise and "third way" politics has opened the door for right-wing demagogues to take power. It has also re-awakened a militant and energized left to combat both the wackadoodle right and the tepid center. We're seeing this play out in American politics and the 2020 Democratic primary.


Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor is a scholar, author and activist. Her writing and speaking has incisively and ferociously exposed the failures of capitalism and the necessity of a fierce struggle to overcome it. She joins Michael to discuss how the hell we got here and how we liberate ourselves.

Hearing you speak in regard to Obama particularly the part of MLK, Rosa Parks, and then Obama made me realize he was never discussing the obstacle of society and how he will change society. He used history to proposition his platform.

What can we do about welfare abuse? That is a major problem ruining it for everyone...

Obama had both houses controlled by Republicans. you discount the Obama healthcare act but give much more time to the Flint tragedy ln spite of what trump says , presidents have very little power except to veto a bill. As to how wealthy Congress members are, comparing wealth to actual annual income is not an accurate comparison. instead, pointing out, how the Republican tax law made the super rich even richer and lowered corporate tax rate to 29%. Maybe you can have Katy Perry, the new Congress woman on. She grilled Jamie Diamond and Mark Zuckerberg fiercely your podcast didn't address impeachment. When Obama spoke of hope and change, the country was on the verge of a huge depression. Your podcast caused me to change my vote from the safety of a Biden vote to Bernie where my heart always was. Finally, by speaking of the silly momentary rift between Bernie and Warren, you gave power to the trumpeters. Please stop giving trump supporters fuel for them to use! Have you listened or followed the cause and success Nancy Pelosi has shown? l am a 74 yrs old white southern grandmother l am begging you to stop trashing the wealthy Democratic party. Plenty of time for that once we get the demented sociopath out. Use your power, 2 million listeners, to help save us. Thank you Michael.
