Nuanced Understanding of Socialism is growing, but Slowly

"I think you see that in the data in terms of people's sort of general perception of terms like 'socialism' in the United States, a much much less disfavorable, much more favorable.

And it opens up the possibility of a spectrum of critiques of the system: critiques like you do, critiques like I do, and others... [But] the ease with which the connection between Biden and Soviet-style governance, or Venezuela, was made and stuck for a lot of people shows me that while there is progress it's certainly happening slowly." -

David Pakman in conversation with Richard Wolff.
