    E245: RIP Loren Goldner

    E245: RIP Loren Goldner

    The communist milieu lost a titan last week. Our kind friend and mentor, Loren Goldner (1949-2024), passed away on Friday, April 12th 3:00am, at age of 76. As a tribute to his life and legacy we were able to gather a handful of people who were close to him to share stories, memories and inspirations. Special thanks to Arya Zahedi, Zhana Kurti, Jarrod Shanahan, Joe Lombardo, Ross Wolfe and Billy O'Conner for coming on to memorialize a great thinker and a great friend.

    UNLOCKED: History is a Weapon 15: On the Labor Question w/ Matt Christman

    UNLOCKED: History is a Weapon 15: On the Labor Question w/ Matt Christman

    Enjoy this blast from the distant pass: January 2023!
    Check out all the other Histories is a Weapon on our patreon
    In light of the depressing denouement of 2022's railroad conflict, Sean and Matt sit down, in person at last, to discuss the deep history behind how American organized labor got so disorganized and why the labor movement hasn't moved in decades.
    Why was it that, in the United States, workers institutions had trouble evolving past the infancy of narrow, sectoral, decentralized craft unionism towards broad-based, nationally-coordinated industrial unionism? How did capital, in the face of militant organizing, help choose the weaker of the two as their partner to bargain with? In what ways is worker self-organization in this country truly, as our enemies always say, anti-American? And importantly what is to be done now that private sector union density is so low, workers institutions so captured and the national labor relations regime has fallen apart?

One of my favorite shows and one of the most entertaining and informative leftist podcasts. I’ve been listening since they started back in, I think, 2017.

The real gems are behind the paywall.
