Class and Socialism: We begin our 3-week experiment with a new format: two in-depth analyses, one in each half of the show.

Prof. Mearsheimer, author of “The Tragedy of Great Power Politics,” and co-author with Stephen M. Walt of, “The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy,” discusses the danger posed by the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, and the escalation of tensions resulting from the recent U.S. decision to pre-position dozens of tanks and other military equipment in allied nations in the Baltics and Eastern Europe.

Adam Gaffney, M.D., research fellow in pulmonary and critical care medicine at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital, talks about the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision in the King v.

Nick Nyhart, co-founder, President and CEO of Every Voice Center, (formerly Public Campaign,) who assesses the current campaign to pressure Congress to restore the Voting Rights Act of 1965 that was gutted in the Shelby County v.

  4. Gregory Williams, a recent graduate of Yale University Divinity School and social justice activist, discusses his and Dan Fischer’s arrest after participating in a May 12 protest at Temple Israel in Westport, CT, where the two had disrupted a luncheon for the group Friends of the Israel Defense Forces to read a statement by Nabila Abu Halima, a Palestinian woman who lives in the Gaza Strip, who watched as her son was murdered by IDF soldiers during Operation Cast Lead in 2008/2009.
