Bill Moyers on the Two Party System

No one says it better than Moyers; in this Q&A with viewers, see in particular his answer to the endless question on the Left: Is it time for a third party? Ain’t gonna happen, says Bill, so best to focus your energies elsewhere. Democrats and Republicans control the rules for running politics and so can make sure no third party can compete. The only solution, he adds, is to build a powerful grassroots movement, like what is beginning to emerge on climate change, to challenge ALL politicians, especially at the local level, to put the people’s interests before those of big money.

By now, almost everyone knows what Edward Snowden did: leak top secret documents revealing that the US government was spying on hundreds of millions of people around the world. But if you want to know why Snowden did it, the way he did it, you need to know the stories of two other men.


The first is Thomas Drake, who blew the whistle on the very same surveillance ten years before Snowden did and got crushed. The other is The Third Man, a former senior Pentagon official who comes forward in this book for the first time to describe how his superiors repeatedly broke the law to punish Drakeā€”and unwittingly taught Snowden how to evade their clutches.
