Millennials Are Killing Capitalism

Dec 3, 2017

For this episode we caught up with Eugene Puryear, member of the Party for Socialism and Liberation and their candidate for the US Vice Presidency during the 2016 election. 

For our show, Eugene talks with Jay about the Russian Revolution and what it means to him 100 years later, both historically and within this current political moment. He also talks about what the Russian Revolution meant for not just the working class, but for oppressed people around the world, including for people on the African continent and the African diaspora in the immediate aftermath of the Bolshevik Revolution.

We then pivot to current events to get Eugene’s perspective on the unfolding situation in Zimbabwe. Eugene also shared some of his own reflections on Mugabe’s legacy and the centrality of land redistribution to decolonization efforts. Finally Eugene discussed the situation in Libya and cautions that the sudden uptick in media attention is already leading to compelling, but misguided, calls for US intervention.
