    PATREON EXCLUSIVE PREVIEW: What If Toys But God Is Dead?

    PATREON EXCLUSIVE PREVIEW: What If Toys But God Is Dead?

    The Red Troika delivers our most icy cold/spicy take episode on one of the most beloved film franchises in recent history: Toy Story.
    Icy Cold Takes™ abound on everything from alienation under capitalism, the co-optation of radical feminism by authoritarian liberal feminism, the crypto-fascism of the nuclear family in the films, the death of God, zoomers versus boomers, family court, and much more!
    This one gets deranged, unhinged, and chaos reigns as we destroy a sacred cow of settler colonialist ideology just in time for the holidays. 
    WELCOME TO OUR LIFEWORLD.

    The Lost Revolution: Germany 1918-1923

    A new comrade/patron, Patrick, joins us in the history wing of the Red Library this week to tackle a long-overdue historical moment of everlasting importance for today's Left: the failed German Revolution of 1918.
    We talk about the history of the SPD, the infamous voting for war credits, Rosa Luxemburg and Karl Liebknecht, the March Action, the Spartacist League and Uprising, the Kapp Putsch, and more!
    This one has Big Radio War Nerd Energy and is already an RL classic!

    Capitalism and Desire: The Psychic Cost of Free Markets (Pt. 6)

    Capitalism and Desire: The Psychic Cost of Free Markets (Pt. 6)

    For Plowin' with McGowan Pt. 6/Chapter 6, CC Don is in the driver's seat to talk Hegel, the good infinite, and the bad infinite in capitalism. It's the skeleton crew on this one with just Podrade Neil and Comrade Adam/Chairman Bane joining in the fun. 
    This is a very breakfast food-heavy discussion. Many questions ensue. Marx is discussed. Daggers are drawn. Answers are sought and only more questions are found.
    ENJOY.
