We’re joined by journalist and eminent historian of Posadsim, Andy Glittliz aka @spaceprole of @the_antifada podcast! We discuss his excellent book from Pluto Press I Want to Believe Posadism, UFOs and Apocalypse Communism. How did a principled working class organizer become a cult leader? Are there parallels to conspiracy theories today? Even massively popular reforms are shot down by the ruling class, why not shoot for moon? Shouldn’t we at least get to see them aliens?

This is (almost) the dawning of the age of Aquarius, how red will that dawn be? OK’s been a little fixated on China, would a new global superpower be beneficial to international communist movements? We try to focus back in the art and labor realm with the 3rd part of the Nika Dubrovsky and David Graeber’s piece for e-flux. How can we build enough power to meaningfully transform the art world as we know it??

We talk about localization and the great yuppie exodus of New York City 2020. Propublica confirmed everything we’ve been saying on this show for months, that Cuomo and De Blasio murdered tens of thousands of people through their refusal to shutdown the city. Kicking houseless people off the subways and adding a couple UV lamps are not going to be enough to make people feel safe to do retail and tourism again without also providing massive testing and other essentials like food and rent relief. Which is why China is about to easily overtake the United States as the global superpower, whoopsies. And we thought the city was becoming a giant police state mall BEFORE the pandemic!! PS – the only opposition party we have is fighting to protect corporations and fund the cops over workers.
