The End of Utopia?

We discuss the 1967 essay by Herbert Marcuse titled "The End of Utopia" in which Marcuse argues that "utopic" is no longer a valid polemic, we are at the "end of history" but for a far different reason than Fukuyama, and that we need a redefinition of socialism.

The Fourth World War Has Begun

We discuss the essay titled "The Fourth World War Has Begun" by the leader of the Zapatista EZLN Subcomandante Marcos.

The Glass to See to the Other Side – Zapatista Short Story

We read and analyze the short story written by Zapatista Subcomandante Marcos titled "The Glass to See to the Other Side" in which the revolutionary beetle Don Durito says goodbye to Mexico City. It's a great commentary on the isolation, individualism, and other ills of neoliberal capitalism. The story can be found in a book of Marcos' work "Our Word is Our Weapon."
