"What's It Gonna Take to Get the World We Need?"

Professor Dennis Loo, Cal Poly Pomona, talks about the nature of the State and how it functions in Capitalist Society, arguing that the defining characteristic of the State is the monopolization on the legitimate use of force. Loo then explores the character of the modern imperial State, its embrace of the so-called War on Terror and what it means for those who want to change the world.
