Today, we welcome Professor Harvey Kaye. Professor Kaye is a professor of Democracy and Justice Studies at the University of Wisconsin - Green Bay and author of several books, more recently Take Hold of Our History: Make America Radical Again, The Fight for the Four Freedoms, Thomas Paine and the Promise of America. Professor Kaye also has an upcoming book, that is available for pre-order, entitled: FDR on Democracy: The Greatest Speeches and Writings of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. He also can be found on Twitter @HarveyJKaye.
We discussed Professor Kayes early life and inspiration along with his early introduction to Thomas Paine that has stuck with him ever since. Professor Kaye explained the importance of Thomas Paine to us, as American citizens, and why we should care about Thomas Paine. We then take a deep dive into the importance of FDR during his time and what we should take away from his Presidency for today. How Bernie's policies align with FDR and what we can learn from the FDR presidency. Professor Kaye also has some helpful suggestions for the Bernie Sanders camp on how he can realign his message with FDR. Towards the end we discussed some other radical figures in US history that are of importance as well.
I hope you learn something that you can use in your own life. Thanks for listening!
