In this conversation, Chard explains how the U.S. government’s mission to stop groups like the Weather Underground and the Black Liberation Army fueled a dramatic expansion of state policing powers that gave birth to the age of total surveillance.  Subscribe to access our library of bonus content: patreon.com/nostalgiatrap
