"Exploring Anti-Capitalist Politics and Culture:
A Marxist and Eco-Socialist Perspective"

Welcome to my blog, a space dedicated to exploring anti-capitalist politics, Marxism, eco-socialism, and the intersections between culture and politics. Through articles, reviews, and analyses, I aim to provide insight into the complex and multifaceted world of leftist politics, and the ways in which our political and economic systems intersect with and impact our cultural space.  

Whether you’re interested in art, TV, books, film, or simply seeking a deeper understanding of the world around you, this blog is for you.

Join me on this journey as we explore the possibilities and limitations of a world beyond capitalism.

Reviving ‘Neither Washington Nor Moscow’

In an era of escalating global tensions and the rise of new geopolitical powers, the debate over the alignment of socialist movements has become increasingly pressing. The slogan “neither Washington nor Moscow” is more relevant than ever.
