FRIDAY NIGHT TALK, 7.30pm CELEBRATIONS AND SOCIALISM 🗓

November 20, 2020

Andy Thomas asks why do humans celebrate things? Is it a natural impulse or manufactured by class societies? How are celebrations linked to social/ economic systems (tribal, feudal, capitalist)? How do religious ceremonies support class-divided social relations? What might we choose to celebrate in a socialist society, for example, if we are involved in decisions about food and the natural environment will we celebrate ‘ancient’ change of seasons?
