Looting the Ivory Tower: “The wicked trinity of late capitalism”

I have made a short (2mins 19 seconds) film as part of my “Looting the Ivory Tower” series. It’s on a new paper in Geoforum – “The ‘wicked trinity’ of late capitalism: Governing in an era of stagnation, surplus humanity, and environmental breakdown” by @IliasAlami @JackCopley6 @moraitisalexis

Twitter was playing silly buggers with uploading, so I resorted to putting it up as a youtube video –


It’s a cracking article -here are some slides from the video

There’s other stuff they could have used (wicked problems/super-wicked problems) but those are maybe outside of the straightforward (but not vulgar) materialist frame these guys are using.

The Ralph Peters article is from 1997, and is called “Constant Conflict”

Anyway, hope the video is useful to you…
