Abby Martin: The War on an Idea (Socialism, Communism)


The Empire has a range of weapons to maintain its power: from its courts to its military. But it also has effective ideological weapons.

Everyone in the United States knows that “socialist” or “communist” is considered a bad word. How did things get that way?

Abby Martin explores the history of anti-communism in America, and the heavy repression of an idea that became an unofficial religion.

Featuring interviews with:
Brian Becker, founder of the Party for Socialism and Liberation (Twitter: @pslweb)
Jared Ball, Professor of Communication Studies at Morgan State University (Twitter: @iMiXWHATiLiKE)
