Dems' Closing Message: Harold Meyerson; plus Mike Davis Remembered and Adam Hochschild on Woodrow Wilson Living in the USA

    • Politics

Election day is less than two weeks away. What should the Democrats' closing message be? Harold Meyerson of The American Prospect comments.
Also: Mike Davis, author and activist, radical hero and family man, died on Tuesday, Oct. 25. After talking about his life and work, we play part of an interview with him on this podcast from November, 2016, one week after Trump was elected.
Plus: The Trump years are not the only time American democracy has been threatened – the World War One years, when Democrat Woodrow Wilson was president, were another. That’s what Adam Hochschild argues –his new book is “American Midnight: The Great War, a Violent Peace, and Democracy’s Forgotten Crisis.”
