Joe Clement hosts this last show closing out 2012. We hear an upbeat assessment of socialism's unheralded (by the left) successes over the long haul; a review of the great short story writer Alice Munro's latest collection; and a discussion of two movies about fracking, one by local film maker Gus Van Sant. Following Bill Resnick's and James Livingston's conversation about socialism, Joe Clement reads a passage from Marx and Engels's Communist Manifesto discussing types of socialism, and you can read it here.
