Richard Wolff - Socialism For Dummies - Tune In...

Economist Dr. Richard Wolff, Democracy At Work joins Thom. Sanders announced that he was running for the democratic presidential nomination - the media and the political establishment has been screaming that a self-described "democratic socialist" could never win the democratic nomination - let alone the presidency. But what is "democratic socialism" - how is it different from Soviet-style communism - and why is it completely off base to compare democratic socialism to Maoism?

Is Elizabeth Warren Feeling the Bern? Progressive Roundtable

Joe Madison, The Joe Madison Show/SiriusXM Urban View & Mike Lux, Democracy Partners/The Progressive Revolution: How The Best In America Came To Be, both join Thom. Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren released a report recently that looked at 20 of the worst federal enforcement failures in 2015 - the report concludes that "Corporate criminals routinely escape meaningful prosecution for their misconduct.” In an opinion piece in the New York Times - Warren. She goes on to write: "But the administration's record on enforcement falls short - and federal enforcement of laws that already exist has received far too little attention on the campaign trail." She ends her piece by writing "The next president can rebuild faith in our institutions by honoring the simple notion that nobody is above the law, but it will happen only if voters demand it.” This falls short of an outright endorsement - but doesn't this sound a lot like Elizabeth Warren is coming out in favor of Bernie and his plan for bold progress - as opposed to Hillary Clinton's plan to build slowly upon what Obama has built?

Who Are The Bernie Bros? Progressive Roundtable

Joe Madison, The Joe Madison Show/SiriusXM Urban View & Mike Lux, Democracy Partners/The Progressive Revolution: How The Best In America Came To Be, both join Thom. According to fans of Hillary Clinton - one of biggest problems with Bernie Sanders is his supporters - especially online. They’ve been deemed "Bernie Bros" - and Glenn Greenwald wrote recently that "It’s intended to imply two equally false claims: (1) a refusal to march enthusiastically behind the Wall Street-enriched, multiple-war-advocating, despot-embracing Hillary Clinton is explainable not by ideology or political conviction, but largely if not exclusively by sexism: demonstrated by the fact that men, not women, support Sanders (his supporters are “bros”); (2) Sanders supporters are uniquely abusive and misogynistic in their online behavior. How misleading is this term? And is this label going to backfire for the pro-Hillary camp - especially considering how Bernie is polling among women - especially young women?
