Marxism: Back to Basics

Marx is an icon this show is rather fond of but rarely did we ever break down the basics of his political agenda. We will do just that today with the help of Yuva Balan, our resident Trotskyist. What do communists want? What is the role of the state? And what place does revolutionary violence have in a neo-liberal era? We set the the record straight in another exciting intellectual exchange.
