In Episode 17, Wendi Muse and I continue in part 2 of our discussion from the previous episode. Here we talk about about how people could possibly change in terms of political outlooks, and what are some ways to communicate concepts like neoliberalism, capitalism, socialism, etc. in more accessible, relatable ways, as well as considering non-Western ways of living communally that predated and inspired leftist Western thinkers like Marx and Engels and others.
