Living the Dream

Living The Dream with a Climate Emergency, COVID-19 and The Australian State

April 20, 2020

In this episode of Living The Dream Dave (@withsobersenses) talks with Anna Sturman (@anna_sturman) author of ‘Climate Emergency’, COVID-19 and the Australian capitalist state . Anna draws on the work of Nicos Poulantzas to present an understanding of the state, a diagnosis of the contemporary conjuncture of Australian capitalism and suggest ways that we can struggle for dignity and lives worth living.  We talk through the possibilities of the present, the opportunities for creating and using power and cut the gordian knot of  the great debate of 2019 – Jobs Guarantee or Universal Basic Income.
