A Failure of Vision: Michael Harrington and the Limits of Democratic Socialism
Socialist Resurgence Radio interviews Doug Greene, Marxist historian and author about his forthcoming book, A Failure of Vision: Michael Harrington and the Limits of Democratic Socialism (Zero Books, 2021). In the current period, democratic socialism seems ascendant with the rapid growth of the Democratic Socialists of America. Many on the left have embraced the notion that the Democratic Party is an arena of struggle.
Harrington was the foremost champion of the concept of “realignment” -- the notion that socialists can work inside the Democratic Party and make gains for working people. Greene joins our host Alex Coy to explode myths about Harrington, the Democratic Party, and democratic socialism.
