We can’t have Democracy without Capitalism

Hahahaha the inherent lie that is spit out all around us. As Dr Wolf explains the real truth is that they are incompatible ! That is why I hate the term democratic socialism. Socialism as it was meant to be is already democratic !

Focused, witty and important...

Dr. Wolff illustrates the massive blunders of capitalism, with its cheerleaders who are embodiment of corruption and hypocrisy, and how they effectively use policy and fear mongering to divide folks and extract every last penny out of the middle and working classes. His work brings to light the real issues facing America.

If you suspect you are one of the millions of Americans wondering how the hell we got to here, pick up any of Wolff’s books, podcasts, lectures, You Tube videos, etc...(a plethora of outstanding work) and learn how and why we are where we are, and what to do about it.

Dr. Wolff is intellectually honest, wittingly funny and has an unfailing moral compass. Guide the way.

The issue of risk

The worker co-op model is very exciting. I hope the upcoming generation of workers embraces it. I don’t believe most older workers would be willing to take on the risks and responsibilities of being owners and decicion makers
