  1. The Desire for Full Automation - Toby Shorin

    What can we learn from the desire for "full automation?" This phrase originates from a left-accelerationism which advocates liberation from the yoke of technocapitalist subjectivity. But once we peer into the understanding of agency on which this project is premised, a world of alternative causalities, of divine magic and prehistoric animism, opens up. The demand for full automation is related to our nostalgia for an enchanted pre-secular age. How can we bring these spiritual demands in line with our modern conception of freedom?

  2. Miksi sosialismi ei toimi?

    Sosialismi on tullut takaisin muotiin. Tämä on huolestuttavaa, sillä sosialismiin siirtyminen olisi megalomaaninen virhe. Tässä videossa perustelen, miksi.

  3. Trailer for Lo–TEK. Watch Julia Watson take us through the making of her new book

    “Technology can be different. Technology can just use nature and the systems that nature is composed of, to do things for us like clean sewerage and provide drinking water. That’s architecture that is beautiful, and emblematic of a particular place.” – Julia Watson

    Lo—TEK, derived from Traditional Ecological Knowledge, is a cumulative body of multigenerational knowledge, practices, and beliefs, countering the idea that indigenous innovation is primitive and exists isolated from technology.

    With a foreword by anthropologist Wade Davis and four chapters spanning Mountains, Forests, Deserts, and Wetlands, Julia Watson’s new book explores thousands of years of human wisdom and ingenuity from 20 countries including Peru, the Philippines, Tanzania, Kenya, Iran, Iraq, India, and Indonesia

  4. Munk Debate on Capitalism ft. Arthur Brooks, David Brooks, Yanis Varoufakis, Katrina vanden Heuvel

    This debate was held on December 4, 2019 in at the Roy Thomson Hall in Toronto. The polled results can be found here- https://munkdebates.com/debates/capitalism

    From the official debate description: "There is a growing belief in western societies that the current capitalist system no longer works for average people. Economic inequality is rampant. Life expectancy is falling. The environment is being destroyed for profits. Political power is wielded by wealthy elites and big business, not the people. For capitalism’s critics, the answer is a top to bottom reform of the “free market” along more socialist and democratic lines. For proponents of capitalism, it is the engine of economic and social progress, full stop. Not only has capitalism made all of us materially better off, its ideals are responsible for everything from women’s rights to a cleaner environment to greater political freedoms. The answer to society’s current ills is more capitalism, more economic freedom, and more free markets."
