Notes from the great impasse.... the boys are back to take you for a wild ride from supply chains, to the Great Resignation, to culture wars, to cryptocurrency, to NFTs to terminal crisis.
Why is nothing working and why does everything feel bad? It's the decadence of capitalism as a functioning social system and Sean and Matt explain why.
Be sure to listen to the end as Matt, like a similarly bearded guy before him, reaches into the misty depths of theology to try to analogize the impersonal domination of the value form. Ask yourself: is capital in fact the DEVIL? The answer might surprise you.

Ep 165 - Born In Flames w/ Aaron Thorpe
1:18:47Jamie is joined by pal-of-the-show Aaron Thorpe (@paradoomer) to discuss Lizzie Borden's 1983 feminist sci-fi film "Born In Flames." Ten years after a "war of liberation" that established a social democratic government in the United States, things are still not great for women, especially queer, black, working class women! In a story that remains relevant to this day, the film follows the radical organizers of the Women's Army as they fight for true equality. Outro song - "Born In Flames," Red Krayola
Everybody Loves Communism: The Paris Commune (pt. 1)
59:04Greetings, Antifada super soldiers! This week, we're cross-posting an episode of Jamie's new show Everybody Loves Communism, wherein she and co-host Jorge do the reading so you don't have to. In this edition, Jamie and Jorge begin their mini-series on the Paris Commune as a prelude to chapter 3 of Lenin's "State and Revolution," because you need to know about it to understand that chapter. It's also just an important event in the history of class struggle; Marx called it "the dawn of the great social revolution which will liberate mankind from the regime of classes forever"(!) The content of the episode draws from Massacre: The Life and Death of the Paris Commune by John Merriman. New Yorker Review of the book: https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2014/12/22/fires-paris Produced and Edited by Paul (@aufhebenkultur) Intro: Everybody Hates Chris theme song.
