We discuss the Trilateral Commission, founded by David Rockefeller, and their 1975 report "The Crisis of Democracy."
We go over our most popular and controversial episodes of 2020 and what we have planned for 2021.
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.
In episode 4 of 4 on Herbert Marcuse's "One-Dimensional Man," we discuss "The Great Refusal," Marcuse's solution for how to think 'two-dimensionally.'
In episode 3 of 4 on Herbert Marcuse's "One-Dimensional Man," we discuss how man became one-dimensional including the concept of repressive desublimation.
In episode 2 of 4 on Herbert Marcuse's "One-Dimensional Man," we discuss the irrationality of rational society.
In episode 1 of 4 on Herbert Marcuse's "One-Dimensional Man," we provide a short biography of Marcuse, discuss the historical context of this book, introduce the two main theses, explain what Marcuse means by "technology," and discuss how advanced industrial society is totalitarian.
We discuss the essay titled "The Fourth World War Has Begun" by the leader of the Zapatista EZLN Subcomandante Marcos.
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."
