The Platform Analysis: Is Spontaneous Solidarity Possible?
We both LOVED Netflix’s gruesome yet beautiful Spanish film, The Platform, and so today we’re doing a deep analysis on the messages in the film and what came through for us as two staunch anti-capitalists. We explore what the film says about capitalism, socialism, communism, anarchism, class warfare, limited resources, neoliberalism, and so much more.
