Syndicalism In The USA
August 16, 2019 9:12 AM   Subscribe

Arsenal For Democracy Radio’s summer series, Lend Lease, has dropped its most ambitious episode yet: an overview of American anarchism and revolutionary syndicalism in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, with a focus on theory and the IWW. Part 1 And a discussion of US government repression of anarchism and revolutionary syndicalism from the 1880s to the first Red Scare of the 1920s, as well as the controversial Propaganda of the Deed theory of violence, the role of immigrants in the movement, and the Sacco and Vanzetti trials. Part 2. It comes with over 20 pages of notes and citations.

I knew before I was halfway through the first sentence that this was one of your posts (this is a compliment).

If I didn't think my job would frown on it severely, I would totally do as a side hustle a Political Violence Tour of Wall Street. There were attempted assassinations right where the crowds now mill listlessly about in the financial district, hoping to get some cheap swag celebrating the NYSE listing of some new company.

I read "has dropped" as cancelled or did not go through with. Glad I was wrong.

Yeah, dropped is a Freudian slip of a choice in this context.
