Beyond Liberalism

program date: 
Mon, 08/04/2014

Clayton Morgareidge argues for why we need to "learn to see passed liberalism" and why "we must join and form and nurture political organizations that aim at transforming the capitalist and militarist system of power, which now governs our lives." He does this after admitting the many points of agreement between socialists, anti-capitalists, and liberals about poverty, inequality, war, racism, sexism, etc. He explains the problems of liberalism in terms of fetishizing moral persuasion before the power structures of state and corporate capital.
