The Majority Report with Sam Seder

Jacobin editor Peter Frase (@PeFrase) on his new book Four Futures: Life After Capitalism. How speculative fiction helps imagine future societies. What if it were possible to "escape" from the necessities of labor through automation. The possibility of post-scarcity and reality of ecological constraints. Abundance, equality, and their opposites, as determining factors for future societies.

On the fun half - Melania Trump comes to the defense of her husband, Nicki Minaj slams her. Paul Ryan warns of giving Bernie more Democrat Senators to work with, Wisconsin Trump supporters start a Paul Ryan Sucks chant. McCain promises to block Hillary's SCotUS selections.
