Season 5, Episode 20.5 Will Nguyen, The Star Trek Communist

Enterprising Individuals

This week, The Star Trek Communist Will Nguyen joins the show to talk about Marxism and socialism in the Star Trek franchise! Everyone gets that no money, replicators, and an equal distribution of wealth is how the Federation became a utopia, but maybe it's not quite that simple. On the show, we talk about the flaws in Trek's "socialist" utopia, how money doesn't equal capitalism, the parallels between the USSR and the Federation, Space Che Guevara, "degenerated space worker state", DS9 as the ultimate laboratory for examining space economy, the challenges of 2020 that capitalism is failing to meet, and why we can't wait for replicators to build a socialist society.#RIP HerbFollow Will on Twitter and check out the podcast!https://twitter.com/boomerninerhttps://socialistrevolution.orgCommunicate with us on Facebook and Twitter and the Just Enough Trope Discord!http://www.facebook.com/eistpodhttp://www.twitter.com/eistpodhttps://discord.gg/APk2cCyJoin our crew on Patreon!http://www.patreon.com/eistpodSubscribe to the show on iTunes!https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/enterprising-individuals/id1113165661?mt=2
