Weaving together hidden episodes of history and verité footage, the film shows that, contrary to popular belief, socialism is in fact deeply American and led to popular government programs such as public schools and Medicare. Activists and journalists explain how the 2008 financial crisis, the Wall Street bailout, the Occupy Movement, and the ascension of politicians like Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez have pushed a new generation to embrace the language of socialism.
Plot: What do we talk about when we talk about socialism in the US? The Big Scary “S” Word explores the rich history of the American socialist movement and the people striving to build a socialist future today.

A beginners guide to understanding socialism
Simply a must see.
“When we all do better, we all do better.” -Paul Wellstone
Unfettered capitalism is the titanic of our time, above the waterline it looks like an unsinkable permanent behemoth, but its rapidly taking on water and before long it will only be a cautionary tale.
I’m here for it.
Decent film to shift the Red Scare view on Socialism
I will start by saying I didn’t feel this film was some mastermind propaganda film to convert you to socialism. However if you are right leaning or far right you are probably going to disagree with me on that.
The film doesn’t spew a bunch of leftist or liberal talking points for 80 minutes. Rather it tries to shine some light on the history of socialism, and leftism as a whole but particularly in America. Laying out the factual events in history that people both on the left and right would agree are morally good, actually have roots in socialism, or leftist ideology. So to equate any form of socialistic thought with the USSR or poverty and hardship is just illogical and oblivious to history.
The movie brings many collegiate historians and people who identify as socialist, in order to state some points which from an objective point of view should be universally accepted, but aren’t because of the McCarthyism and red scare era politics that has been engrained into most American’s brains.
