Marxism 101: How Capitalism is Killing Itself | Empire Files | Abby Martin w/ Dr. Richard Wolff

Perhaps you have a problem with Marxism but an extraordinary percentage of Millennials do not.  If you are not a Millennial then it seems, therefore, it would be prudent to prepare for evolution in action.

Abby Martin is the sharpest journalist in the world and Dr. Wolff shows his clear expertise in Marxism.  If you can set aside prejudices for half an hour, you may find enlightenment in the vid since no-one is prattling dogma; Martin wouldn't put up with it.

The Rockhouse does not see Doom & Gloom in the failure of capitalism since there is beauty in that which comes for those who can see past it and, more importantly, make it happen.

You have heard the MSM view of Marxism thumped like it comes from chimps with bongo drums but this is the real thing.

Despite a concerted effort by the U.S. Empire to snuff out the ideology, a 2016 poll found young Americans have a much more favorable view of socialism than capitalism.

Though he died 133 years ago, the analysis put forward by one of the world’s most influential thinkers, Karl Marx, remains extremely relevant today. The Empire’s recent rigged presidential election has been disrupted by the support of an avowed socialist, Bernie Sanders, by millions of voters.

To find out why Marx’s popularity has stood the test of time, Abby Martin interviews renowned Marxist economist Richard Wolff, Professor Emeritus of Economics at UMass - Amherst, and visiting professor at the New School in New York.

Prof. Wolff gives an introduction suited for both beginners and seasoned Marxists, with comprehensive explanations of key tenets of Marxism including dialectical and historical materialism, surplus value, crises of overproduction, capitalism's internal contradictions, and more.
