Download Hour1 Download Hour2This week on the show we look at whether 'freedom' is actually possible under capitalism. We start with an interview by C. S. Soong of two members of P.O.W.E.R. about the development of capitalism. Then, a reading about the stresses of working life which underlie the modern phenomenon of 'going postal'. We conclude with a reading of Bob Black's classic "The Abolition of Work".
