Left Forum 2015: Chris Hedges
IdentiferProgram LF2015 26
DescriptionChris Hedges at the panel Marx: The System is the Problem.
Capitalism, many hoped and expected, would secure, in the words of the French Revolution, "liberty, equality and fraternity." Marx's work says "no, capitalism did not and cannot secure liberty, equality, fraternity or democracy; indeed capitalism's social dominance is now the systemic obstacle to their achievement." Marx's critical analysis of capitalism as a system informs and invites the next necessary step in realizing the greatest social goals of modern history.
