This is a book of real hope for progressives.
In his new book Intercept journalist Ryan Grim lays out what exactly has happened to what used to be known as the party of the working people. Grim shows that when democrats truly stand for progressive ideas and values they win. As Grim documents in this fascinating book, over and over, tired old usual program of Democratic Party Wall Street obsequious corporate ‘centrism’ is the ticket to failure and ruin.
If we — and the climate crisis stressed planet — hope to survive, we must wrest back control of the Democratic party.
The three video interviews linked to in this story are excellent.
