Bill Resnick interviews Max Elbaum on the two existential threats facing humanity -- authoritarianism and global roasting. They discuss how to defeat both, building the broadest of lefts, including segments of the Democratic Party that today might support the sweeping mobilization of all our productive resources to transform how we, across the planet, produce and consume. Bill and Max are cautiously optimistic, that our other better sustainable and radically democratic world is necessary and possible.

This segment has 5 more minutes of conversation than in the broadcast.

Max Elbaum broke with Maoism, wrote Revolution in the Air: sixties Radicals Turn to Lenin, Mao, and Che, helped found the website Organizing Upgrade, that promotes an Inside/Outside strategy to prevail over Trumpism and build the movements.
