What we need is an end of the alliance between malthusian environmentalism and leftism. Workers won't get a better shake when the idiotic left wages a war against fossil fuel. Your argument is unsound if not ridiculous.

I tend to agree with you on economics, inequality, corporations etc., but I disagree with you on guns... because without them, I think the underclasses will be damned to servitude/exploitation in perpetuity. unless they're armed, to one degree or another, they have no way to fight back...😕

Please don't blanket all Libertarians under one category. Please say Libertarian-Capitalists or Anarcho-Capitalists. ✊🏻🥰🏴🚩

To say Marx is the most important critic of capitalism is very Eurocentric and excludes BIPOC critics.

I know you referenced Syndacalism as a brand of Socialism, but I'd really appreciate it if you mentioned Anarchist methods of organizing a Socialist/Communist economy/society.

It might be an incredible interview, but I could not understand anything from it due to very poor audio quality

I've followed R.D. Wolff for a while and have enjoyed his books, but he is way off on UBI. he frames the argument completely wrong and doesn't seem to understand the underlying justification for it.

the only problem is that this implies that conservative politicians haven't allowed labor disparities and inequality to forment specifically because it makes voters easier to exploit and lie to
