In part three of a three-part debate series between The Nation‘s Chris
Hayes and Reihan Salam of the National Review, the two journalists
discuss whether the US is moving towards socialism
as a nation.
“Compared to where we were in 1900, I think the United States is pretty
clearly socialist,” says Salam. He argues that the country “is getting
to the point where we’re not going to be able to reverse some of the
moves in the direction towards a socialist economy.” Hayes points out
that socialism has a lot of different meanings but believes that America
should be moving towards social democracy. Check out the first two debates on healthcare and the military
