Jamie is joined by Geo Maher to discuss his new book, "A World Without Police: How Strong Communities Make Cops Obsolete." They discuss the origins of mass incarceration, the debate around "non-reformist" reforms, and alternative models of community safety. Also, the million dollar question: how do abolitionist politics fit into the over-arching project of building communism?
W/ bonus questions on the communes of Venezuela and the Zbellion!
