Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has attracted wide support, propelling socialism into millions of people’s conversations. But can the United States really go socialist?
There is a long history of socialists fighting for working people in the United States. Today though, even the very reasonable demands for single payer health care and regulating the banking industry are meeting with fierce resistance from both the 1% and the Democratic Party machine.
What will it take to win the political revolution Bernie talks about against Wall Street, Corporate America and all the other powerful forces that have an interest in upholding the status quo–like the Pentagon and criminal justice system? Join us for a discussion about socialism in the US historically, the leftward shift in politics today, and what it will take for the US to ‘go socialist’!
