Richard Wolff: Marxism and Communism | Lex Fridman Podcast #295
Richard Wolff: Marxism and Communism | Lex Fridman Podcast #295 https://youtu.be/o0Bi-q89j5Y Lex turns himself inside out, and can't deal with the truth about capitalism and Marx's ideas. An excellent discussion of Marxism, Socialism, and Capitalism, but never mentions that Socialism is the END STATE of the Marxist dialectic, a utopian idea as realized in Northern Europe today. Richard Wolff wrote a book on the Rise and Fall of the Soviet Union, which details why Stalinist U.S.S.R. (like Mao's China) was NOT a communist democracy, but instead a one-party, totalitarian military dictatorship. This discussion is by far the best public discussion on Capitalism and Marxism in the past two decades.
