The Development of Slave and Wage Labour in England: from Ancient to Present times

Date and Time: 
Saturday, December 21, 2019 -
5:00pm to 7:30pm

Talk by James

The talk will provide a survey of contemporary knowledge of English economic and legal history, dating back to the Anglo-Saxon period. Focusing on state and legal controls on labour, this talk will present a case for rethinking the radical understanding of “the system" - Marxist or Anarchist - especially the attribution of our present woes to “capitalism,” runaway markets, and the like. The talk will conclude with some implications for radical thought and action, followed by group discussion. Development or dissension from the ideas raised are welcome.
