Where proletarian culture and technology intersect…
While hard to imagine in our Teabagger Nation, there was a time when socialism was as American as apple pie. There was a time when after church on Sunday, the community would join together for the monthly Socialist picnic. There even was a time when socialism was so embedded in our “common sense” that cities, communities, and fans collectively would have the audacity to own a football team.
Here are some artifacts from that past that will give a glimpse of that socialist culture. Many of these are referenced in John Nichols book The S Word.
