America’s Unofficial Religion — The War On An Idea – Empire Files

The Empire has a range of weapons to maintain its power: from its courts to its military. But it also has effective ideological weapons. Everyone in the United States knows that “socialist” or “communist” is considered a bad word. How did things get that way? 

Abby Martin explores the history of anti-communism in America, and the heavy repression of an idea that became an unofficial religion. 

Featuring interviews with:
Brian Becker, founder of the Party for Socialism and Liberation (Twitter: @pslweb)
Jared Ball, Professor of Communication Studies at Morgan State University (Twitter: @iMiXWHATiLiKE)

teleSUR’s The Empire Files airs every Friday night at 10:00 EST / 7:00 PST. Watch live here: http://bit.ly/1kuU2Vi
