    Revolutionary Transformation Requires a Collective Response

    In this episode, Prof. Harvey argues that we cannot survive this viral crisis without a radical reconfiguration of the social and institutional arrangements. Any revolutionary transformation of society has to operate across all dimensions: technology, relation to nature, social relations, production apparatuses, social reproduction, institutional arrangements, State apparatuses and mental conceptions.

    Collective Form of Action

    In this episode, Prof. Harvey argues that this crisis has afforded us an opportunity for significant change. With so many people out of work, freed up from producing wealth for the capitalist class, instead of hoping that things go back to normal, and people return to the low-paying, exploitative jobs, that we give serious thought to reorganizing our society and work to create something radically different.

Really insightful

Great podcast that serves as a good introduction to David Harvey and his perspectives on capitalism and Marx. What sets this podcast apart is the focus on what Marx actually said and wrote and how it applies today.
