Old Mole Variety Hour
The Old Mole burrows down to the roots of the great issues of our time – the struggles of ordinary people for democratic and sustainable ways of life. The Mole goes where corporate media fear to tread, supporting grassroots challenges to top-down authority and giving voice to movements that shake the foundations of an unjust society. The Moles' perspective is democratic, broadly socialist, and feminist. (We count Karl Marx as a friend).

Joe Clement reads an article by Dylan Matthews titled "Is The Future Of America A Crummy Service Job Stamping On A Human Face, Forever?" He considers how Rand Paul and Hillary Clinton both approach the economy in much the same way: make sure that there's a ready supply of people willing to take jobs when most of the new jobs created are low-wage, low-skill, and inconsistently scheduled. He argues that the more ethical and economically rational answer to "the jobs question" is a basic income. [Image from here]
