Jamie and Aaron go over Marx's 1875 essay "Critique of the Gotha Program," in which he gives some spicy takes on the platform proposed by the Social Democratic Workers' Party of Germany (SDAP) and the General German Workers' Association (ADAV) as they prepared to unite into one party at a conference held in the city of Gotha. In it, he warns against the reformism and revisionism injected by the ADAV's late leader Ferdinand LaSalle and clarifies what an uncompromising communist vision looks like. The crew summarizes Marx's critique before discussing its modern day relevance.
