Eric chats with Steve Horn about the political fallout from last week’s Wisconsin recall debacle. They discuss everything from the complete bankruptcy of the Wall St., corporate-controlled Democratic Party to the utter failures and complicity of major union leadership. Additionally, Eric and Steve analyze the role of Wisconsin in the mass strike phenomenon, particularly its relation to Occupy and the current political struggle in Greece and much of Europe. They also examine possible solutions for activists and organizers moving forward.
