One thought on “Robert “Bob” Scheer – Part 2 – Ep 62”

  1. I have a tremendous respect for Robert Sheer and the 80 plus years he’s applied to good use; but I disagree in part.

    Electoral politics are of zero-to-little effect because of the duopoly; and it’s true that activism is far more effective as it was under FDR.

    Forming a third party is not an either-or. We can have direct action AND work on developing third party platform. Working on a 3rd party is a legitimate front as well. Abandoning 3rd party politics is to concede the electoral front to the duopoly.

    Eliminate the electoral college, institute ranked-choice voting, and then tell me a 3rd party is not viable. We need to work on the electoral front by changing the power the duopoly holds over the process. We cannot concede that terrain.
