The 17 Contradictions of Capitalism | David Harvey
You thought capitalism was permanent? Think again. Leading Marxist thinker Professor David Harvey unravels the contradictions at the heart of capitalism — its drive, for example, to accumulate capital beyond the means of investing it.
David Harvey (@profdavidharvey) is Distinguished Professor of Anthropology and Geography at the Graduate Centre of the City University of New York. This event marks the publication of Professor Harvey’s new book, Seventeen Contradictions and the End of Capitalism.
Haven’t watched this yet, but if it’s even half as good as the book, it’s brilliant. Definitely recommend it, it’s only an hour and a bit long so would take you much less time than the book!
lmao I should have just posted a link to one of the many articles that it took me like 10 seconds to find and gone to sleep 10 minutes ago
I have way less of a filter and am way more irritable when I’m sick
How can you be Chinese and Filipino and say “they’re the same race” uh dude no they’re not, there were people in the Philippines that the Chinese encountered, does your family not talk to you about what your heritage/lineage???? I’m kind of shocked anyone can be so ignorant of their own history. I don’t blame them but like good god if you did research of your own you would know Filipino and Chinese are not the “same race” wtf…….. You’ve got google right at your hands, goddamn.
Or how about YOU google the difference between ‘race’ and ‘ethnicity’ and ‘nationality’? Let’s take me for example. My race is Asian. My ethnicity is Chinese*. I am the same race as Korean people, and Filipinx people, and Indian people, and really all the different nationalities and ethnicities within Asia. That’s why its called Asian…because it refers to all the people from Asia. I am not of the same ethnicity as ethnically Japanese people, or any of the many Filipinx ethnicities, or any of the Indian ethnicities, etc. etc. As for nationality, I’m an Asian-American. That means my nationality is American, and I am racially Asian. I am still Asian despite the fact that I live in the U.S. because race and nationality are not the same thing. I am also Chinese American. This means that I am ethnically Chinese even though I was born in the U.S., because ethnicity and nationality are not the same thing. As for Chinese ppl living in the Philippines, they’re racially Asian (bcuz the Philippines is in Asia), but ethnically Chinese (bcuz they are members of the Han Chinese ethnic group and are descendants of Han Chinese ppl who moved to the Philippines), and they are Filipino nationals (bcuz they are Filipino citizens and live in the Philippines). Another example would be the Hmong ppl. They are an ethnic group without a nation-state to call their own, and they live in many countries, mainly Laos and China. Everyone who is Hmong is members of the same ethnic group and race (Hmong and Asian, respectively) but their nationality depends on which nation each individual Hmong person is living in. In conclusion, Ethnicity =/= Race Ethnicity=/= Nationality, Race =/= Nationality. Does that make sense?
*I ain’t even gonna get into the whole mixed race/ethnicity thing right now cause it ain’t important atm
No wonder we react so viscerally to the “ching-chong, ching-chong” schoolyard taunt. To attack our language, our ability to sound “normal,” is to attack our ability to be normal. It’s to attack everything we’ve worked for.
And make no mistake about it — to sound like a “normal” American is to wield privilege.
