Suitable for Al Ages

In a throwback episode, Pete asked Norman Solomon to come on the show and answer the question, “What happened to the anti-war Left?” Norman is an author and anti-war activist with his first protests coming during the Vietnam War. Norman also describes himself as being to the left of Bernie Sanders.

Norman talks about his experiences protesting and chronicling America’s wars, what he believes has led the Left away from being anti-war and a host of other topics encompassing the civil libertarian realm. He also comments on the absurdity and danger of “RussiaGate.”
