Why is capitalism bad? And how is it “stealing” from people?

Hello everybody in this video I will tell you why I think that capitalism is bad and why it has to be replaced. There are many ways to approach this. One of them is equality. Capitalism is a very efficient system when it comes to creating a lot of wealth. Unfortunately, it’s very bad at distributing that wealth. Pretty much all of the value the economy generates only benefits the top few percent of the population. That being the major…

Ultranationalism: What it is and how to Smash it (OLD VIDEO ESSAY)

Hey comrades. Today I’m releasing a video that’s a little bit different than usual. This video is an edited and updated version of a video that I made for a research project a long time ago.

Reform or Revolution?

Reform or Revolution?

Hey Everybody, in my last video I talked about the UBI and it attracted a bunch of centrists to my channel so I though I’d do the only natural thing and scare them off by talking about a violent revolution to overthrow EVERYTHING. I think on this channel we can all agree that capitalism has more downsides than upsides and that the time has come to look at establishing a better system for us to live in. How exactly that…

As well as being a generally bad time for anybody who worked in a factory, the other thing Victorian England was famous for was machines: automation, and this is gonna become very important later in the series.

AskProfWolff Is religion an opium of the people?

It has to do with how people influenced by the Marxian tradition look upon that famous line that Marx wrote, that religion is the opium of the people. But what has often happened is that people didn’t read the whole quote….
