    Zero Books Manifesto:

    The modern world is at an impasse. Disasters scroll across our smartphone screens and we’re invited to like, follow or upvote, but critical thinking is harder and harder to find. Rather than connecting us in common struggle and debate, the internet has sped up and deepened a long-standing process of alienation and atomization.

    Zero Books aims to work against this trend.

  3. Defending Glenn Greenwald and Critiquing the Post-Left

    The video expresses love for the contrarian and Izzy award-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald and explains why all socialists should love him too, despite the fact that Greenwald is NOT a socialist (and perhaps not even a “leftist”).

    It is also an examination of the new Post-Left or Anti-left trend that has emerged in a trollish way online. In it, you’ll find an excerpt from Christine Louis-Dit-Sully’s upcoming book “Transcending Racial Divisions” as we attempt to understand Marxist historicism and to understand the degree to which taking an anti-left posture might be or might not be a necessary step towards reigniting a struggle for socialism.

  7. Regis Tremblay

    Professor Francis Boyle There were recurring technical difficulties with this program. I don’t know if it is living in Crimea or just internet connectivity issues, but ZOOM has failed on four occasions recently forcing me to switch to Skype during the podcast. For other reasons, I am not further identifying this video. You will understand.

  8. Ray McGovern - US-Russia Relations, Julian Assange, Donbass & Crimea

    Ray McGovern, Co-founder of VIPS - Veteran Intelligence Professionals For Sanity, Chief of the Soviet Foreign Policy Desk at the CIA, CIA analyst for 27 years, briefed Nixon, Ford, and Reagan daily, member of Veterans for Peace, and friend of Julian Assange. An amazing, INSIDER view of US Soviet-Russia from inside the CIA. Ray studied Russian Language and History in University, later taught Russian. He’s fluent. Along with Stephen Cohen (RIP) he has no peers when it comes to knowing and understanding Russia and the Soviet Union. This interview is an amazing course in HISTORY from a true expert. Not only is this interview important for Americans and everyone to understand Russia, but it is also injected with Ray’s incredible sense of humor and storytelling.
