Laura Flanders and Richard Wolff on the UK election

FLANDERS: And to be honest, I think the kind of work (and this is what I was gonna say before), the kind of ongoing political education work, the popular education work that unions used to do, that free schools used to do, that community organizations, even churches, used to do, isn’t happening. So you can have a Corbyn- McDonnell revival in the last five or six years of the Labor Party that is finally going back into communities, animating those…

Culture in Decline | Episode #3 “C.V.D.” by Peter Joseph

Culture in Decline | Episode #3 “C.V.D.” by Peter Joseph

Oh, hello! Hey, tell me honestly. Do these pants make my ass look too big? Or wait, maybe not big enough? Is it time for a little butt cheek augmentation? Or maybe a little liposuction to take away these love handles, at least; and perhaps while I’m at it, a nice tummy tuck. That can’t hurt to even it all out! But wait, why should I stop there? Since I’m a bit too lazy to work on these pecs, perhaps…

Economic Update: The Contributions of Karl Marx (Part I)

Welcome to part one of a four-part series on the work and the contribution made by Karl Marx. We do this now because it’s the 200th anniversary of Karl Marx’s birth, but of course the real reason we do it, is because we think that that work, that criticism of the capitalist economic system, remains a source of important insights, that can be useful for all of those who want to make a better world out of the one we’re…

Capitalism Hits Home: Capitalism, Socialism and Communism – Part 1

Hello, this is Dr. Harriet Fraad on Capitalism Hits Home, an interpersonal update. This is a show about the intersection of capitalism, class, and our personal lives. Today’s podcast on Capitalism Hits Home is about what is class? What is a class revolution? What does it mean when we talk about feudalism, capitalism, state capitalism, socialism, and communism? These are words bandied about, but we don’t really know what they mean, and we don’t learn about these revolutions in school….

Richard Wolff and Harriet Fraad on the Family Struggles in Capitalism

FRAAD: The family is failing. The majority of 18 to 35 year olds don’t get married. There are more people that live together than marry because they don’t really feel they have enough security, and stability to be married, no less start a family. So families are in big trouble.
