Millennials Are Killing Capitalism

Dec 14, 2023

In this episode Steven Osuna returns to the podcast.

Steven Osuna is an associate professor of Sociology at CSU Long Beach. He has written extensively on street organizations, policing, the so-called war on drugs, and the ravages of capitalism and neoliberalism. He also has experience organizing in the Philippine solidarity movement and other struggles. 

Shout-out and solidarity to all of the Cal State University faculty as I know have been on rolling strikes and are negotiating  their new contracts currently.

In this conversation Osuna talks to us about Mao’s speech & essay “On the Correct Handling of Contradictions Among the People.” This is a part of our series of episodes with guests where they pick a piece of communist, socialist or other radical thought and we read it as well and we come together and we talk about it. 

This conversation was recorded back in August, so you won’t hear references to the current struggle in Palestine or other current events, but this discussion is relevant as always to organizing among the people and so it is relevant to today nonetheless. 

Thanks again to Steven Osuna for this conversation. We’ll include links in the show notes to the Philippine solidarity campaigns he uplifted as well as the Foreign Languages Press website and their journal new Material.

Also once again we do have a Sylvia Wynter study group coming up. That is for patrons or YouTube members only. It will be Wednesdays at 7:30 PM ET during the month of January. You can become a patron of the show for as little as $1 a month and support our work at
