Subscriber Podcast #34 – Anti-Capitalist Pop Culture

Published September 22nd 2019 | Tags: , , , , , , ,

Why is it that capitalist economies and cultures produce anti-capitalist products? In this month’s subscriber podcast I examine three examples of anti-capitalist pop culture – Sorry to Bother You, Office Uprising and Corporate. I discuss how their storylines contain some very pertinent criticisms of capitalism as an economic model and of the corporate world. Analysing how capitalism weaponises both individualism and collectivism to maintain itself as a system, I discuss why the capitalist model is so robust and has lasted so long in the face of widespread opposition.
