[VIDEO] Breaking the Wheel? An Open Letter to Sam Tarly

A video using the popular TV show Game of Thrones as a launching point to make the case that libertarian-communism is worthy of serious consideration, since things that were considered impossible in the past are often common sense today, and things that seem impossible today may only be viewed that way due to premature dismissal and a closed mind.

'Communism in Living' - What can early human society teach us about the future? by Camilla Power

We need to appreciate the significance that understanding primitive communism held for the early Marxists.

Marx himself put aside his work on Capital to do some anthropology, which we find in his notebooks - from which Engels extracted the work which led to The origin of the family, private property and the state. Besides Marx and Engels, there is Rosa Luxemburg: as a prisoner in World War I, she wrote Introduction to political economy, where she deployed the cutting edge of anthropology of her day.
