A Favor

In my experience teaching and talking politics and sociology and anthropology, I have learned that most Americans have a very distorted understanding of what socialism/Marxism is. This is probably due to the residual hangover of the McCarthy witchhunts of the 1950s. Sen. Joe McCarthy and later J. Edgar Hoover saw Communists in every closet in America and they swore to ferret them all out, even if there were no Communists.

 

I want to talk about the role of socialism in the current presidential campaign, but I really don’t want to do a long detailed explanation of what socialism/Marxism is so I’m asking all of you to read the following article. Click here to read.

 

Thanks!
