Book Talk: Player Piano, by Kurt Vonnegut

program date: 
Mon, 08/04/2014
Joe Clement and Peter Frase talk about Kurt Vonnegut's first novel, Player Piano, originally published in 1952. The story of Player Piano is set not too long after WWII, and is about social anxieties and alienation in class society in the shadow of the machines that replaced much human labor in the United States during the war. It focuses on a soul-searching engineer, Paul Proteus, and his clandestine recruitment into a revolution against the machines. Joe and Peter discuss the novel's economic vision, how it reflects anxieties of its time and how they might still resonate today, the crisis for patriarchy technology creates and the patriarchal bias Vonnegut still has beneath his satire, the politics of sabotage and direct action in the economy, and more.

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.
