Green Left speaks with cultural theorist Aleks Wansbrough about his recent article "Struggling for ecosocialism in the time of Elon Musk".
Musk and his ilk have become avatars for a green capital utopia, and have built their fortunes on their desire for capitalism to save itself.
Wansbrough discusses the dystopian future of neo-feudalism that awaits us if the growth of "platform capitalism" is allowed to go unchecked.
We also look at what Marx, Engels and other theorists have had to say about rapid technological advancement.
To wrap up, Wansbrough tells us about his new book Capitalism and the Enchanted Screen.
