iTunes is screwy
For some reason new episodes are postdated when they get released, so you might have to remember to check a few weeks back in your feed if you don't want to miss them.
I’m stunned to see an ideology, that has murdered 100s of millions of people and failed in more than forty countries, continue to exist.
In these theoretical worlds that completely ignore human nature, how would you ever stop corruption from seizing control of such a highly centralized power structure? Because that is exactly what has happened literally every single time communism has been implemented.
TedxTalk for the Far-Left
Very diverse range of speakers, all academically experienced, and with leadership/charamstic qualities. This makes you care to listen for long periods of time, about topics you didn't know you were ever interested in. Well, I'm speaking for me. I like this because I like learning, and that's how I stumbled upon this-- even though ironically I've been reading up more on far-left ideologies and politics during the last few years. Far-leftists are the intended audience, but anyone interested in understanding perspectives and exploring the constructs of every topic in a capitalist society (your daily life & how you live in the West), this is a great find. Just give a couple episodes a try, even if you don't believe you'll be interested or click with certain ideas, because there are some great speakers who will give you the stories of forgotten historical freedom fighters (beyond their revolutionary ideas and leadership, but their connections their personal humaneness is reflected, and their ideas and accomplishments are relevant to improving the problematic systems of today, for ex). fostercare, prison, schools, the STEM industry and the overlooked prejudices and biases found in the most successful scientific researchers for instance). The importance of human rights, feeling a duty to each other in society, and valuing different moments in history in regards with today is beneficial because the uplifting of those marginalized in complex ways due to race, gender, ability, class, environment, etc is important to societal understanding and functioning. Our plans regarding social laws and social constructs relate to our future with technology and our views on dependency regarding products as opposed to each other. And lastly, being ahistorical is nothing to celebrate or accept. There's something for everyone in these episodes. Everything is evaluated.
