Revolution and Ideology
Discussing history, social theory, and really whatever else we feel like talking about!
We discuss an article titled “The Cumulative Advantage of a Unionized Career for Lifetime Earnings” and discover whether or not you should join a union or go to college (or both!).
Where does the act of quiet quitting fit into the context of a larger movement? Does it have the potential to make a real impact? Is it Marxist or Hegelian?
As a short follow-up to our previous episode, we discuss whether or not every act is a political act. We briefly mention commodification, socialization, industrialization, technology, capitalism, religion, and more.
We loosely discuss a Gawker article by Clare Coffey titled “Failure to Cope Under Capitalism”.
We discuss a short history of labor strikes in the United States and how the federal government dramatically reduced the power of labor with the Taft-Hartley Act of 1947.
