“We are living in a time of unprecedented historical crisis, which affects all forms of the capital system, not just capitalism. It is easy to understand, then, that the only thing that could produce a viable solution to the contradictions that we have to face would be a radical socialist alternative to capital’s mode of social metabolic control.”   István Mészáros

“Forces of production and social relations - two different sides of the development of the social individual - appear to capital as mere means, and are merely means for it to produce on its limited foundation. In fact, however, they are the material conditions to blow this foundation sky-high...” —Karl Marx, The Grundrisse

In Grundrisse Marx arguably bridges his early writings on philosophy and Hegel, and the writing and revisions of Capital that dominated much of the rest of his life. We are continuing careful, page by page reading of the text with a view to understanding the concepts that evolve within it. These next sessions will focus on Notebooks Four and Five. We will complete our reading of the entire Grundrisse during the fall of 2022.

Thirst: The Rich Are Vampires

$3.00 – $11.00

Vampires are symbols of the ruling class. In Karl Marx's Capital and Bob Marley’s Babylon System they make visible their extraction of surplus-value from working classes the world over. In the new novel Thirst,writer/activist Nicholas Powers renews the vampire genre by placing an upsurge of the politics of resistance, an all-out attack on racism, heteronormative sexism and anti-fascism at the heart of capital, with Thirst being a stake to be driven through that heart.
