The old forms of the left are moribund and the new forms are stupid. We're making a podcast that talks about the need to organize a dialectical pessimism and develop a Marxist salvage project capable of putting up a good fight as the world burns around us.

So, listen…

Its been said elsewhere that it is easier to imagine the end of the world than it is to imagine the end of capitalism.

There are many on the left who seem to be incapable of letting a momentary upturn in struggle, or a softening of policy by the ruling class, pass without declaring the end of Capitalist realism. The common ruin of the contending classes is all we have to look forward to unless we can find a way to assert our agency. Until we realize our world histo…

Everyone knows what the happiness industry is, that vapid misapplication of eastern spiritual practice, adapted to help stave off deaths by despair or convince you that alienated depression is the fault of your brain chemistry and not the crushing weight of capitalism. As the contemporary left is little more than liberalism turned up to 11, it shou…

Both Adam and Alex are Marxists who study psychoanalysis and find it to be useful to their Marxism, but do not consider themselves Freduo-Marxist or Lacanian-Marxists.
