You know when it says “don’t think too hard”? I usually don’t listen. Ask me about socialism. Criticism teaches more than flattery | No lists |

.@nick_brana opens the #PeoplesConvention with an overview of the argument: we need a party free from corporate interference if we want to reign in corporate greed.

Seems like a no brained to me, and many out there regardless of party affiliations. It’s quite refreshing to see some of these film shorts portraying what the average person is really experiencing.

Not nice, clean, polished language, but the real grit and dirt of life for the majority.

What is a “Mixed Economy”?

Most say that the US has one, and that “pure economies” don’t exist anymore, but what does that mean?

What is this thing we have which is used to justify both reform & the status quo?


👇LONG THREAD👇 This won’t be a discussion supporting any candidate/platform, but it will contain criticisms of theories that some support.

It will be a frank discussion about this curious concept which is so amorphous it’s used to justify opposite positions simultaneously.

As we see debates about increasing the top marginal tax rate, and even talk of a max income, I think it’s important to talk about what happened during the long reign of one of the greatest presidents of all time: FDR.

#ResistanceEducation FDR’s election happened during the height of the Great Depression, during which labor movements in the US were at an all time high.

This organization amongst labor, coupled with strong socialist and communist parties within the US, led to increased pressure.

Let’s talk about #Socialism.

This will be an open discussion about a political/economic theory.
It is NOT to support ANY candidate or platform.
It is purely for education so we’re “on the same page” with this topic.


👇Long thread👇 Another quick note:

If you are NOT a socialist, that’s great!
You should still read this brief overview so you can understand the current arguments of the socialist debate.

At the end I’d love to hear any questions.

Ok, let’s get started.
