We're out of time. We've got a very small window of time to reverse the damage done by capitalism and build a socialist future, before humanity is doomed. To cope, we've decided to record ourselves talking about the left, the right, history, politics, theory, and other things we think are relevant to our late-capitalist epoch. A clean, honest, and unsentimental melancholy is required; we've cultivated one and would like to share it with you.

Dialectic of Defeat: A Collaboration with Red Library, Part II
This week we dive in to the second part of our two part collaboration with Adam from Red Library, who hosts s a great podcast that analyzes and discusses important works of Marxist theory and history. We are big fans, go check them out. This week we continued our discussion on Dialectic of Defeat: Contours of Western Marxism by Russell Jacoby, so if you haven't listened to the first part, do that now. In Dialectic of Defeat, Jacoby examines the losers of the Marxist tradition and argues that there is something to be learned from them, even in their defeat. He exhorts us to read the heretics, doubt the orthodoxies, and truly understand all of the rich and varied currents of Marxism, even if they ultimately failed to create a successful revolution. After all, all of our gods failed us in the end.Either that, or we failed them. Jacoby, Russell. Dialectic of defeat : contours of western Marxism.

Dialectic of Defeat: A Collaboration with Red Library, Part I
Red Library is a great podcast that analyzes and discusses important works of Marxist (and other leftist) literature, and we are big fans. So, we are happy to announce that this week we teamed up with them to read and talk about Dialectic of Defeat: Contours of Western Marxism by Russell Jacoby. The discussion ran long, so it has been broken into two parts. This is part one.In Dialectic of Defeat, Jacoby examines the losers of the Marxist tradition and argues that there is something to be learned from them, even in their defeat. He exhorts us to read the heretics, doubt the orthodoxies, and truly understand all of the rich and varied currents of Marxism, even if they ultimately failed to create a successful revolution.

PATREON TEASER: Goodbye Lenin: Melancholic Thoughts
We decided that a good companion to our episode about Melancholia and Organized Pessimism would be a rare recording with all of us (except Kevin) in the same room, talking about a pretty cool movie that we saw over a decade ago.Sign up on our, very reasonably priced, Patreon to access our-- small but ever growing number of-- bonus episodes. https://www.patreon.com/theregrettablecenturySupport the show
