Mobilizing Resentment

Program #BERC003. Recorded in Woods Hole, MA on June 10, 2003.

The rise of right-wing populism is not an overnight success story. It didn't happen because millions of people suddenly started listening to Rush Limbaugh. And the current widespread influence of right-wing groups is not unique to this period in American history. The roots are deep and the historical trends point the way to where we are today: rightwing values have a firm grip on many mainstream political and cultural institutions. The strategies used by right-wing leaders to achieve this success are worth examining by any grassroots organizer.
