Well, do you really need to overthrow "Capitalism" with a "Revolution"?


American Johnson and his Non Comepete channel present ”A Beginner's Guide to Overthrowing Capitalism".  The narrator calls himself Conrad Cornelius Farnum, and then as “Professor Carrot”.


You wonder if this is a spoof, as the tone sounds like that of a 50s propaganda movie.

He does talks about “mass line” and “dual power structures”.

He first debates “incrementalism” or “reform” as opposed to “revolution”.

But for all the talk of comradeship and collective identity, the process still sounds incremental. He barely mentions Antifa. 
    
It’s interesting that he mentions “Pink Pistols” as an oppressed people’s group as it is actually a libertarian gay rights 2nd Amendment rights group.
