Teaching for a New America

In a number of social spheres we are seeing services long considered the right of the public turned over to private investors.  Prisons and schools are prime examples, two of the largest employers in the country.  At the same time, large industries long considered the foundation of the private sector are seeing large amounts of government investment that is sometimes called “government ownership” or even “socialism.”  These issues, that seem to express contradictory motions, have raised  questions about what appears to be a crossroads in our history.

We’ve asked the editor of Rally Comrades to discuss with us this crossroads in the light of two articles that recently appeared in the journal (links below):  What do fascism and socialism look like in the perspective of 21st century US experience?
