Crushing Capitalism with Dr. Asimakopoulos is an interdisciplinary video e-journal.  It analyzes current events and scholarly topics such as imperialism, censorship, propaganda, political corruption, and corporate power.  The journal combines multiple theoretical perspectives including anarchism, Marxism, classical economics, Socialism, and the progressive Left in general.  Its purpose is to counter the dominant ideology of capitalism and expose the contradictions and inherent injustice of the system.  It seeks to inform of alternatives to capitalism, and means through which these can be implemented as with direct action, to promote economic, racial, ethnic, and gender equality, create democratic political structures, and resistance to all forms of injustice.
