Astra Taylor, a leading intellectual and organizer on the left discusses the growing appeal of socialism in a world with such extreme economic inequality. She looks at how to get the most out of organizing meetings and why listening as a critical component of democracy.

The book also examines corporate attempts to use technology and the fear of automation to further exploit workers.

Finally Taylor looks at the future and the climate catastrophe in a capitalist world that only sees the world through the lens of the short-term profits. She argues for the need to extend rights to nature by fighting to counteract profit-seeking ventures with real democracy.
