Is America Already Socialist?

No, but are government programs like libraries and public utilities socialist programs?  Could they be a path to a new society?  How can you use them to talk to people about socialism?

Episode 5-1: We’re all hipsters, and capitalism is using that to rip us off

Hello Comrades,

We’re back. It is a bit later than we were hoping, but nevertheless it’s here. For the the next while we may end up not meeting our usual every two weeks. But rest assured we’ll continue to put out as often as we can (and we’ve got several guests lined up that we’re quite excited about).

For the episode, well the title pretty much sums it up. Red and I are talking about how we’re all hipsters, and capitalism is using that to rip us off.

Red Star Radio

Hey Comrades,

   Red and I were guests on a new podcast called Red Star Radio. You can find their SoundCloud page here and rss feed for your podcast apps here. Give them a listen and let them know what you think. I will also say that I personally find it very inspiring to see such young and knowledgeable comrades coming together to help further the left movement.
