We're currently in between Season 1 and Season 2, so we've decided to take the opportunity to reproduce the "State Theory and Socialist Strategy Series" from 2017 in a more linear and coherent fashion. Old and new listeners, alike, will benefit from this presentation that will unfold over the next week, which develops a critical analysis of the relationship between the capitalist state and socialist strategy. Adam Hilton, visiting lecturer in Politics at Mount Holyoke College, is on the show to talk about the history of the Democratic Party and its interaction with the left. Can the Democratic Party be used as an instrument of socialist advance? And what is the nature of the Democratic Party, anyway? Tune in to find out.
