In this episode, I announce the new podcast name, which I will be rolling out over the next month, and I discuss the climate strike and Canadian elections!
Resources from this episode
- Check out Silvia Federici’s book Re-enchanting the World: Feminism and the Politics of the Commons
- Check out Crack Capitalism by John Holloway
- Confused when I talk about class? I wanted to find an article with a simple definition that does not use jargon, but could not (let me know if you have one). Basically, Marx’ definition of the working class is the group of people that must sell their labour for a wage or salary, who do not own the means of production. The means of production are the physical manifestations of the workplace: the buildings, land, factory, machines, the inventory, software networks, etc. The means of production look differently depending on the workplace. The main point is, you don’t own them! Most people are working class, whether employed or not. Your level of education, income, sub-culture, and whether you own your home or car does not matter for this definition.
- Check out Deschooling Society by Ivan Illich (oldie, but still important, in my opinion)
- My favourite resource for climate activism is Uneven Earth
