The World is a Mess - Is Bernie Sanders The Answer?
Revolutionary Communist Annie Day, of The Bob Avakian Institute, joins us to speak out about the Bernie Sanders campaign.
Today, all kinds of people are looking at the state of the world - the destruction of the planet, endless wars, mass incarceration of Black and Brown people, the oppression of women, LGBT people, immigrants, and much more. They're anguished and outraged. And they're told that supporting Bernie Sanders will solve these problems, that it will at least be a positive step, or that it will give a push to the movements that are protesting these injustices. Sanders himself says that this is a revolution.
Why is the world the way it is, and how do we change it? What difference would it make if Bernie Sanders became president?
Hear what Annie Day has to say about these questions and more!
The following works were mentioned during the program, for those who want to dig further into the questions raised.
