NEW – JOAN WILLIAMS – White Working Class – Overcoming Class Cluelessness

Written on September 28th, 2018

A friend emailed me JOAN WILLIAMS’ Harvard Business Review article, What So Many People Don’t Get About the U.S. Working Class. Read over 3.7 million times, it’s the most read article in HBR’s 90-plus year history, and I can see why. WILLIAMS is the author of WHITE WORKING CLASS: Overcoming Class Cluelessness in America. “If we don’t take steps to bridge the class culture gap, when Trump proves unable to bring steel back to Youngstown, the consequences could turn dangerous.”

BILLY WIMSATT, is the founder and executive director of Movement Voter Project, which offers a clear break from the tired and true strategy of electoral politics – big donors, big consultants, and big TV ad buys.

Free Forum – MARK DANNER Author, SPIRAL: Trapped in the Forever War

Written on July 22nd, 2017

What will Trump do if there’s a terror attack? MARK DANNER points out that it’s been 16 years since the attacks of 9/11, and thanks to Bush, Cheney, and Obama, “Donald Trump inherited a government on a permanent wartime footing, actively fighting in six countries, using means both public and secret – including drone strikes and attacks by covert special forces – and doing so with the benefit of never-ending war powers granted by Congress.” What could go wrong?
