Overview

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 writes a regular column for SocialistWorker.org and his articles have appeared in Truthout, ZNet, and the New York Daily News. He is the author of Socialism . . . Seriously: A Brief Guide to Human Liberation and America’s Got Democracy! The Making of the World’s Longest Running Reality Show.
