Scenario-planning for Bernie: what is success, what is productive failure? We attempt to “dream realistically” with Adam Proctor (Dead Pundits Society): how far can this wave of ‘democratic socialism’ go? Bernie will fail – he won’t bring in socialism, so how do we make that failure something to build on? How do we avoid the risk of demoralisation? And most dangerous of all, how to not interpret failure as success?
Plus bonus stuff on Syriza, Brexit and talking in platitudes.
