You are cordially invited to a webinar presentation on the topic:
Are we Becoming more Radical? The Rise of Democratic Socialism in America
Dr. Anne Rathbone Bradley
Monday, May 18th
5:00 PM – 6:00 PM
**This event will also be streamed live on Facebook. **
About the lecture: Thirty years ago last fall we celebrated the fall of the Berlin wall. Many thought this represented the end of history–capitalism had won and socialism had been swept into the dustbin. Today, we see that a growing segment of the American population favors “democratic socialism” and we see American members of Congress who proudly claim this ideology. We will discuss how we have gotten here and why Democratic Socialism can’t work both on economic grounds and moral grounds.
