The Enchantments of Mammon w. The Regrettable Century (Pt. 1) Red Library: A Political Education Podcast for Today's Left

    • Education

A Lost Horizons Network Collaboration
It's time once again for Real Nerd Hourz with our podrades from The Regrettable Century! And we decided to keep it chill this time and read a book together that is only 1000 pages. We join forces to kick off our new collaborative reading series on Eugene Macarraher's The Enchantments of Mammon: How Capitalism Became the Religion of Modernity. 
Chris leads us through the Introduction and Part 1 to get things off just right. We talk about the general thesis of the book that the world is not disenchanted with capitalism but enchanted in a new corrupt way, the moral economy, the Commons, medieval communal life, Protestantism, romantic anti-capitalism, the Big Beards, William Blake, and tons more!
