The Prison of the Possible

Doug Henwood on the question of the state, how to stop Hillary Clinton, and why today's left should embrace its counterculture roots.

Doug Henwood’s Harper’s cover story about Hillary Clinton ruffled the feathers of the Democratic Party establishment, and this pleases him immensely.

In this conversation, Henwood tells about his brief early attraction to the ideas of William F. Buckley and Milton Friedman, why his politics moved to the left, and how today’s economic and political realities call for radical politics.
