What Is Democratic Socialism?
For several years either side of the turn of the century, Dissent Magazine became… uncomfortable with the label “socialist”. They haven’t quite gotten over it, but well before even the Great Recession, they began once again to give the matter some serious attention. Apropos the Bernie Sanders campaign, the editors have dug into the archives and pulled out an interesting selection of essays spanning the years 1954 through 2010. You can find it HERE.
The folks at Jacobin provided a similar exercise, but directed specifically at Sander’s speech defining his outlook on democratic socialism. You can find it HERE.
