In this episode, we discuss how a socialist economic system could move us beyond a minimum wage economic system to a living wage economic system. We highlight the history of the minimum wage and the inherent contradictions with this form of wage slavery.
Be sure to check our prior shows to about how we define socialism and why we think it's a better economic system, and how it can benefit all of humanity.
This is our premiere show in which we, the show hosts, Bakari and Carl, instroduce ourselves and talk about why we started Socialist Visions, and more importantly why you should listen and participate in the show.
For the first few months, the Socialist Visions podcast will be a b-iweekly podcast (aired live on Sundays) in which we discuss why we think socialism can vastly improve the living conditions of all people on the planet, and why it's important to discuss and debate the objectives of a scientific socialist economic model. In upcoming shows, we will provide you a better understanding of socialism, and address the misconceptions about what the system is and is not about.
We invite you to call in with your questions, or write give us feedback at email@example.com.
Bernie Sanders is understandably getting a lot of attention to his bid for the Democratic primary, but some long-time socialists question his socialist credientials. If anyone has standing to discuss the issue, it is the candidate of the US Socialist Party. While that is yet to be determined, Mimi Soltysik, one of the candidates for the nomination, joins Taking Back America to talk about his vision of a socialist America, the obstacles to getting there, and how we might do so if the majority of Americans make clear that is what they want.
This show will be rebroadcast on October 3 at 2 PM PST/ 5 PM EST on the Star Com Radio Network.

Though many people still can't invision the United States as being a socialist country, the popular support of Bernie Sanders does show that people want a political economy that works in the interests of all people, and not just in the interests of a small property owning class. To this end, we discuss in this episode how the US might move from a capitalist/imperialist impire to a socialist political economy that really works for the people, and a better world overall.
We must realize that we have enemies of free speech and free thought. There are a select group of people that are hell bent on destroying this country. So are you a Patriot, Coward, or a Silent Is Consent individual? This is not the time to be silent. We must fight for the freedom of your children and their children. If we don’t speak and fight now it may be too late in 2016 even if that queer leaves the White House. I really do hate Obama with a passion because he truly defines EVIL. He is not a wolf in sheep clothing or a damn Trojan Horse. He is a representative of Satan himself walking in the flesh. Just like Christians believe that Jesus was sent to do the work of his Father. Barack Obama was sent to do the work of His father, Lucifer aka the Devil? He must not fault Obama for working hard for his daddy the devil. We must fault every man, woman and child who have not really attempted to stop him. We must also realize that your Elected Officials are part of the problem not the solution. Stop attempting to be political correct and start standing for the truth. The time is NOW. We don’t have long to fight these demons. We can win through Prayer and standing up for the truth. We should turn to God perhaps he will hear our cry. He is a merciful God and He will forgive and he can heal our land. God is not man that he should lie. Ignoring these demons will not make them go away. So I beseech you my brothers and sisters fight with me in this great work that we have.
