Join Socialist Worker columnist and author of Socialism… Seriously Danny Katch for the launch of his new book, Why Bad Governments Happen to Good People.
“The perpetual choice between the corrupt Republican Party or the inept Democratic Party has left millions of people without a real alternative in the contests that are supposed to determine our political representation. With wit and clarity, Katch argues for social movements, political activism, and socialism as the alternatives we need to win the world we want. Get this book!” —Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor, author, From #BlackLivesMatter to Black Liberation
The election of Donald Trump has sent the United States and the world into uncharted waters, with a bigoted, petty man-child at the head of the planet’s most powerful empire. Danny Katch indicts the hollowness of the US political system that led to Trump’s rise and puts forward a vision for a real alternative: a democracy that works for the people.
Danny Katch is an activist and humorist often accused of not knowing the difference. He is the author of Socialism . . . Seriously: A Brief Guide to Human Liberation and has contributed chapters to Occupying Wall Street and 101 Changemakers. He writes regularly for Socialist Worker.
