Episode 50: Theory – The Eighteenth Brumaire of Louis Bonaparte
Celery (@comrade_celery), Markus (@RIPMarkusJ), Sid (@geckofantasies), and Hunter (@copcemetery) are back this week to discuss Marx’s 1852 pamphlet, “The Eighteenth Brumaire of Louis Napoleon,” in which Marx uses his materialist method of analyzing history in order to understand the failed revolution of 1848 in France and the rise to power of Napoleon III.
