The world is facing an unprecedented crisis with the pandemic, climate disaster, and an economic crash. Extreme inequality is out of control. Resistance is happening on every continent against the capitalist system.  The vision of Karl Marx for a new society is still relevant today. Simon Hannah gives an outline of Marxism and how it can help us in the fight to free people from exploitation and save the planet.
