The Red Desert Ep. 1: The Impossible Image (Pt. 1) - The Supremacy of Artistic Feeling
Play • 1 hr 21 min

We focus on our concept of The Impossible Image as representing negativity and the Real in different ways. Sam brings an example from the art world and Adam brings one from the realm of religion. It all leads to asking "what is the revolutionary subject?"

Imposter Syndrome and Philosophy: Thinking with Gilles Deleuze and Mark Fisher
CONTENT WARNING: MENTAL HEALTH DISCUSSION In this episode, Craig, Will, Matt, and Adam invite friend of the show Rose( @8leggedloser) to discuss the notion of 'impostor syndrome'. Using texts such as Mark Fisher's "Good for Nothing" and Deleuze's "Plato and the Simulacrum" from his Logic of Sense, we consider what it means to feel a failure of identification in relation to how one is recognised in the order of things, what it means to internalise social forces that attempt to confine you within identity categories, and what forces and mechanisms there are that constantly call the self into question and demand it account for its authenticity (and often, do so for the sake of asserting power, and of enforcing essentialisms of race, gender, and class). Thinkers in this discussion include Mark Fisher, Deleuze, Wittgenstein, Plato, Freud, Stirner, Nietzsche, Marx, Hegel, and more!

Why We Need a Democratic Approach to Data w/ Salomé Viljoen
Paris Marx is joined by Salomé Viljoen to discuss existing proposals to expand individual data rights or treat it as a form of labor, why we instead need to see data governance as a collective democratic project, and how that would give us the power to decide what data is collected and what it’s used for. Salomé Viljoen is an affiliate at Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University, and a joint postdoctoral fellow at NYU School of Law’s Information Law Institute and the Cornell Tech Digital Life Initiative. Follow Salomé on Twitter as @salome_viljoen_. Tech Won’t Save Us offers a critical perspective on tech, its worldview, and wider society with the goal of inspiring people to demand better tech and a better world.

101. Britain, 2021: a new era of capitalist crisis
What is the outlook for class struggle in Britain in 2021? The pandemic was a world-shattering turning point. All the weaknesses of capitalism were laid bare in 2020. But in few countries more so than Britain. The nightmare which began in 2020 has not been limited to public health, but has infected the already-ailing world economy – with British capitalism the worst hit of all the major capitalist powers. Working-class and young people have already suffered hugely as the bosses try to pass on the pain. The bare-bones Brexit deal will only make things worse for Britain’s capitalist rulers. Boris Johnson’s Tory government has been completely exposed for its incompetence and craven defence of profit over lives. But Keir Starmer’s Labour offers no opposition whatsoever. Britain’s working class has no political voice – and desperately needs to build for a new, independent, mass workers’ party. Already this year, the trade unions have overturned the government by forcing part-closure of schools. And young people showed they are ready to explode in protest in last year's Black Lives Matter movement. British capitalism is not well. Meanwhile, Britain’s working class is angry – but lacks political organisation and leadership. This episode of Socialism look at Britain in 2021: a new era of capitalist crisis.
