Highlights from the new Global Capitalism Lecture: As US Capitalism Shakes, US Socialism Renews
“We are at a crossroads in the United States more so than I ever anticipated seeing in my lifetime. The stakes are enormous, the danger stupefying. But the possibilities for radical change, insight and transformation are what keep us all going. And I want to be one who celebrates them."
The current pandemic and economic crisis further expose capitalism for the unjust, unstable system it is, one that puts profits before the health and well-being of people. The coming rush to respond to these issues and return to “normal” is an opportunity to rebuild, reorient and reorganize our world. But where do we go, what do we do, and with what knowledge and intentions?
We hope to productively contribute to this process with This is Left, a new d@w web series featuring many voices from across the spectrum of left politics.
Looking for an older episode of Economic Update, Anti-Capitalist Chronicles, Capitalism Hits Home, or All Things Co-op? Are you wondering which episodes have transcripts available? We now have something on our website to help you: Episode Lists for each d@w show.
Our YouTube audience is international and growing. Part of that growth is directly attributable to our volunteer translation team whose efforts make our content accessible to people all over the world. Thanks to our dedicated volunteers, many of our videos have captions available in Spanish, Portuguese, German, Chinese, Arabic and more!
