One of the most taboo words in American politics, socialism has been considered a criminal offence, the supposed antithesis of everything that the United States represents. But is this really the case? Tracking the movement’s rich history, this timely and comprehensive film shows that, contrary to popular belief, socialism is in fact deeply American—and it’s going through a resurgence. Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Cornel West, Naomi Klein and more explain how the 2008 financial crisis, recent protest movements, and the ascension of new political voices have pushed a new generation to embrace the principles of collective action in the fight to secure our future.
