Biden And Democrats Won't Even Act As Reformers: Interview With Ryan Knight

Unauthorized Disclosure

"We know they're not a revolutionary party, but they're not even reformers. The Democrats are not even fighting for strong social reforms at this moment. They're managers," says Ryan Knight, a socialist, activist, and host of the "Amped Up" podcast. "They're trying to kind of manage this decrepit capitalist and imperialist system, despite the massive levels of suffering that it's inflicting in our country and throughout the world."   Ryan joins Rania Khalek and Kevin Gosztola for this week's episode of the "Unauthorized Disclosure" podcast. He outlines the chief dilemma with progressives like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who fear confrontation with President Joe Biden's administration and establishment Democrats that control the party.    [*NOTE: This is a free version of the episode.

Capitalism's Canceled, Ditch the Dems (W/ Ryan Knight)

Left Bitches (who are right)

Who's up for some good ol' fashioned capitalism bashing? We're dumping the two-party duopoly with activist and Amped Up podcast host Ryan Knight. How much longer will we be forced to settle for crumbs and choose between a right-wing Democratic Party and a far-right Republican Party? Are we all living in denial? It’s pretty clear we’re being lied to, but few seem to have the courage or the understanding to break through the bullshit. Plus, what exactly is liberalism? And what is socialism? How do we build it here in the belly of the beast? Can socialists work within the Democratic Party or is that a total pipe dream? Is divesting from electoral politics the way forward? The Left Bitches are Anissa Naouai, Erica Marable, Rania Khalek, and Amanda Getty. Produced by Gregory Haddock with music by Jonathan Hurley.
