Populism vs. Socialism

| October 20, 2017

Populism and socialism on their surfaces may seem similar, but they are not the same.  Populism advocates for “the people” against the elites in a national context.  Socialism is international and in certain forms vanguard oriented (which means its more about a cadre of activists than an organic bottom to top movement). Populists may object […]

Intersection and Class

| October 12, 2017

What do the Weinstein scandal, the firing of people who argued against the build up to the Iraq war, the blacklisting of Colin Kaepernick and the threat to remove Goldman Sachs employees who supported Trump have in common?  It is not politics.   Trump supporters are not politically aligned to Kaepernick.   It is class.
