This week, Matt and Cameron kick off a three-week series in an attempt to figure out just what, exactly, is to be done. This week, they’re reading What Is To Be Done? by Nikolai Chernyshevsky, perhaps one of the influential books (in the Russian context) that you’ve never read. Sit down, strap in, and prepare yourself for political theory disguised as a horribly written novel!
Major themes: Rakhmetov Being an Absolute Unit, Sewing Collectives, Subtext is for Cowards
