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.

The Future Has Been Canceled
The slow cancellation of the future has been accompanied by a deflation of expectations, both in the realm of cultural  and -- apparently -- technological production. Culture has crawled to a halt, its progress replaced by advances in methods of distribution. Technology is bogged down in a cycle of adding additional cameras to the iphone. Has capitalism outlived its progressive potential? (The TLDR is yes)Mark Fisher: The Slow Cancellation Of The Futurehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aCgkLICTskQ&t=304s David Graeber: Of Flying Cars and the Declining Rate of Profithttps://thebaffler.com/salvos/of-flying-cars-and-the-declining-rate-of-profit We are not living in a technological golden age. https://youtu.be/tvG3dT79TeYMusic: Маяк - Выше ЗвездSupport the show
PATREON TEASER: The Red Jacobins and the Thermidor of 1921
Check out some Real Nerd Hours when Chris and Jason have a discussion about a not very well known article from an obscure Trotskyist journal written around a decade ago...It generated a little bit of a buzz, but was mostly ignored. We think that was a mistake and we are going to tell you all about why you should care about the decisions of the 10th party congress.https://www.patreon.com/posts/red-jacobins-and-29448338?utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter&utm_campaign=postshareSupport the show
No One is Bored, Everything is Boring, Everyone is Anxious
"Perhaps the feeling most characteristic of our current moment is a mixture of boredom and compulsion. Even though we recognise that they are boring, we nevertheless feel compelled to do yet another Facebook quiz, to read yet another Buzzfeed list, to click on some celebrity gossip about someone we don’t even remotely care about. We endlessly move among the boring, but our nervous systems are so overstimulated that we never have the luxury of feeling bored. No one is bored, everything is boring."For this episode we read a couple of articles by Mark Fisher and the Institute for Precarious Consciousness discussing some of the mechanisms that capitalism exploits to dampen our abilities to organize against it. While the production of this episode really is us just feeding more content into a machine that devours our time and creativity, we are kinda hoping this is an example of the capitalists selling us some rope.
