Great stuff

A great look into modern U.S. politics. I come from less of a Christian or an anarchist outlook, but tbh I’m at the point in my life where I can go any way that will lead the American working class or humanity in general out the modern milieu of liberalism hustle culture in the face of climate disaster. Thanks for the great insights from this pod. Looking forward to more episodes.
