Was there a Global Capitalism update thread and I missed it? This month's update was pretty spicy.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3PsAqfL-_pM

 No.1684401

Yeah, there was, but it got buried


 No.1684404

Wolff got pretty close to advocating people throw a rock through the window of Wells Fargo for a bit there; I hope they don't try to use that as an excuse to arrest him.


 No.1684405

Why would I listen to a liberal for one and a half hours?

It actually amazes me how consistently Richard Wolff defends capitalism, yet calls himself a 'Marxist'

He gets the rope when the revolution comes.


 No.1684406

>>1684405

Do you have some evidence to support your claim?


 No.1684407

>>1684406

What claim? He literally advocates for co-ops and markets, he is an outspoken capitalist.


 No.1684408

>when the revolution comes

 No.1684425

>>1684407

>co-ops

Correct.

>and markets

Never seen it and in this very take he in fact takes the time to note that the USSR and China's accomplishment in industrializing is unparalleled. Supporting evidence is required.

There was but people here seem to not give a fuck about papa Wolff anymore.


 No.1685304

There were a couple threads about how based his praxis was a few days ago


 No.1686813

>>1684407

CAPITALISM DOES NOT EQUAL MARKETS, CAPITALISM IS PRIVATE OWNERSHIP OF THE MEANS OF PRODUCTION. MARKET SOCIALISM IS A THING. READ A FUCKING BOOK


 No.1686856

>>1686813

>reeeeeeeeeee

Typing in all caps doesn't make "market socialism" any less contradictory and utopian. And capitalism is not simply the private ownership of the means of production, but rather generalised commodity production, something that is perfectly compatible with both state and co-operative property.


 No.1686880

>>1684405

You gotta move the proles to the left at the pace they can be moved. Some will flip right over to ultraleftism. Others gotta be nudged one step at a time. Wolff is nudging people away from class toward classlessness. He also frequently criticizes markets.

>Wolff arguing that Obamacare is not an insurance mandate

When did he turn into a democrat apologist?


 No.1687182

>>1687086

I thought he argued that it is a mandate but it's not that bad since we have mandates on all kinds of things and the rich we're taxed more to pay for it


 No.1687185

>>1687182

He argued against the language, against calling it a mandate. And it clearly is a mandate. People get fined for not using it.


 No.1687190

>>1687185

Was that on a new episode? That's disappointing I understood that Wolff was fundamentally opportunist and big tent populist in his approach but I was hoping that [email protected] could popularize socialism and step out from under the dem party skirt.


 No.1687199

>>1687185

http://time.com/39242/obamacare-individual-mandate-deadline/

I am not a lawyer, but I heard it doesnt have a very strong enforcement mechanism


 No.1687200

>>1687190

It was the last one, May 2017. The rest was much better. He goes farther than he normally does with talking about socialism. That part just stuck out at me because even progressive types know that Obamacare was just a Republican health plan cooked up by the Heritage Foundation with a Democrat coat of paint on it.


 No.1687325

>>1687190

Wolff talks about building a worker cooperative political party all the time, he's hardly "under the dem party skirty".


 No.1687393

>>1684407

He criticizes markets all the time, in this update even. He has on numerous occasions said they are not an effective or fair way of distributing resources.


 No.1687406

>>1684404

That was pretty good.


 No.1687408

>>1684404

>>1687406

I want to live in the timeline that has smashie Wolff.
