In this episode of Anti-Capitalist Chronicles, Prof. Harvey explores how geopolitical conflicts escalate into war, both historically and today with the ongoing crisis in Ukraine. Harvey looks at NATO’s role in escalating this crisis, lessons to be learned from the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962, and the looming possibility of nuclear war and its global impact. Mutually assured destruction will continue to be a threat until the West and NATO decide to de-escalate, demilitarize, and negotiate rather than to continually operate offensively.

    I watch with real pleasure your podcast. Your interpretation of Marx’ Capital is very interesting. I will add however the Nuclear Winter is a concept accepted as false and manipulative after Russian spy Sergei Tretyakov and 1985 Nobel peace prize Evgeny Chazov put some light into it.
