This interview is an episode of The Socialist Program with Brian Becker, a podcast providing news and views about the world for those who want to change it. You can follow the show on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Brian Becker and Prof. Richard Wolff discuss the Supreme Court ruling overturning the federal eviction moratorium and putting 11 million people at risk of being thrown onto the streets in the middle of a pandemic. The rationale used by the court to issue this cruel edict is the essence of capitalism — protect property owners’ “right to exclude” at all costs.
Richard Wolff is the co-founder of the organization Democracy at Work and the author of many books, the latest being “The Sickness is the System: When Capitalism Fails to Save Us from Pandemics or Itself”. You can check out his work at rdwolff.com.
