LAURA FINLEY – No state should welcome laws that criminalize free speech and introduce bias against nonviolent dissent or free assembly.
HARVEY WASSERMAN – Both Democratic Socialism and Social Democracy are American made. Accept no substitutes.
PETER BERGEL – Not so fast, fellow progressives! Weâ€™ve underestimated Donald Trump a couple of times now. Letâ€™s not do it again. He may be all the things we think he is â€“ racist, xenophobic, narcissistic, homophobic, anti-Muslim, power-mad. At the same time, though, heâ€™s also getting away with a deadly distraction game â€“ one which threatens life on this planet. If you think heâ€™s dumb, think again.
NAOMI WOLF – I never thought I would have to write this: but – incredibly – Congress has now passed the National Defense Appropriations Act, with Amendment 1031, which allows for the military detention of American citizens. The amendment is so loosely worded that any American citizen could be held without due process.
