William Clare Roberts interviewed on “Dismantling Domination: What We Can Learn About Freedom From Karl Marx”

William Clare Roberts interviewed on his Marx’s Inferno: The Political Theory of Capital (2017):  “You can affirm Marx’s critical theory of the society ruled by capitalist production in every detail and then affirm that we do not yet know how to replace that society with something better.  Rather than a vision of an ideal communist society, we might take from Marx what he offers: a compelling principle of freedom, by which we can evaluate our social and political situation, and a powerful theory of how the capitalist world disregards, endangers and tramples on that freedom. What we can do about it — that we have to supply for ourselves.”
