program date: 
Mon, 01/04/2010

 Alain Badiou enunciates the communist hypothesis:  The subordination of labor to a dominant class, (whether it be a class of capitalists or a class of party bureaucrats)  is not inevitable.  If so, then the existence of a coercive state, with the violent policing we heard about at the beginning of this show, is not inevitable either.  Here is the Old Mole’s Frann Michel making the case for this hypothesis, and for the courage to weather the hard times of struggle.
