Millennials Are Killing Capitalism

Dec 21, 2017

This week as a special cup of holiday anti-capitalist cheer we’re joined by George Ciccariello-Maher. He’s a writer, professor, organizer, and the author of Building The Commune: Radical Democracy in Venezuela, Decolonizing Dialectics, and We Created Chavez: A People’s History of Venezuelan Revolution, which has now been translated into French, Arabic, and Spanish. 
In this episode George recaps some of the moments in 2017 that inspired him the most. We also talk about Decolonizing US Dialectics, Du Bois’s Black Reconstruction, the place for electoral politics in revolutionary spaces, the cultural work of building revolution, the drawbacks of shaming people, Venezuela, and where he thinks the left movements we've seen in recent years might go in 2018.
Finally we get the opportunity to ask George the question leftists have been waiting for an answer to all year long. What does George want for Christmas in 2017?
