In the pilot episode of Everybody Loves Communism, Jamie and Aaron discuss the first portion of Marx and Engels' seminal pamphlet "The Communist Manifesto" with the help of The Antifada's Sean KB (@as_a_worker). After situating the piece in its proper historical context, the crew discusses 'Chapter 1: Bourgeois and Proletarians,' which goes over the differences between idealism and materialism, and why taking an idealist view of history benefits the ruling class.
