The idea that we are entering an era of techno-feudalism that will be worse than capitalism is chilling and controversial. We asked former Greek finance minister Yanis Varoufakis to elucidate this idea, explain how we got here, and map out some alternatives.

    No. Communist countries don’t exist. There are ML countries. And yes, they’re as problematic as the unregulated capitalism countries.

    Capitalism is an issue. Has been for over 100 years. As has Lenin’s malformed ideologies for almost the last 100.

    You should stop digging for antiques in your mom’s basement. Before projecting on to others.

    I was sincere in advising you to address your cognitive dissonance.

      I bet you say all this unironically in your head while wearing a Che shirt.

      I don’t have any cognitive dissonance. Thank you very much.

      Lenin, look how great that turned out.

        Careful, that’s another antique. And no. I don’t wear my politics in any way. And would definitely not wear anything with Guevara as I have rather strong ideological differences with him.

        I don’t have any cognitive dissonance. Thank you very much.

        At this point I’m inclined to agree. You seem insincere and more concerned with poor attempts at unsuccessful trolling.

        Lenin, look how great that turned out.

        I agree. You can even check my post history as I’ve effectively said the exact same thing elsewhere. Today even. I just have actually valid, non hypothetical criticism to offer regarding it.

        Ever heard of libertarian socialism? It’s the OG kind of libertarianism and is great for those who aren’t all that into cognitive dissonance.
