Taking that perspective both socialism and democracy seem like bad ideas. Does that mean that Democratic Socialism is a bad idea? I also talk about my impending resignation from The Chico Peace And Justice Center and the consequences that may h

Se 12 Ep 16 Shadows Of Occupy

In this episode I talk about how far left my activist bent has taken me over the past eight year and how it serves to isolate me. I question whether the isolation is worth it.

Collecting My Thoughts

EIn this episode I try to do some preproduction for my radio show surrounding the concept of poverty. I question my experience of poverty and The Reverse American Dream and if it is just relates to my personal mental health issues or it is more of a global post Great Recession Issue. I also talk about my experience reading a history book on the 20th century and how my concept of socialism is different due to coming of age after The Cold War and the fall of The Berlin Wall.
