America’s Unofficial Religion – The War on an Idea

The Empire has a range of weapons to maintain its power: from it’s courts to it’s military. But it also has effective ideological weapons.

Everyone in the United States knows that “socialist” or “communist” is considered a bad word. How did things get that way?

Abby Martin explores the history of anti-communism in America, and the heavy repression of an idea that became an unofficial religion.
