Marxist historian, commentator, author, and executive-director of Tricontinental: Institute for Social Research Vijay Prasad joins Bad Faith this week to talk about what global revolutions in Sri Lanka, India, Colombia, and other locales around the world can teach Americans trying to cultivate a left revolution here at home. How should the left put pressure on captured union leadership, and how can it hold left politician's accountable? Does the left "eat itself," or is it in a necessary processes of developing a more adversarial theory of change? How does Vijay believe he will see revolution in his lifetime even as he observes the enormous structural barriers to change?
