Organizing Against Capitalism

program date: 
Mon, 08/25/2014

Clayton Morgareidge discusses the kind of movement needed to challenge inequality and save the environment. Noting that neoliberalism rationalizes plutocracy and the security apparatus needed to put down rebellions against the elites, Clayton draws on an essay by Sam Gindin in Jacobin . He stresses that austerity and environmental catastrophism do not motivate organizing for change, and highlights the importance of reckoning with state power--not just protesting, but remaking the state. Although we need to appreciate the differences that led to the development of identity politics, he argues that only by forging alliances based on class can we successfully address the tasks before us.
