Chris, Kevin, and Jason

This week we are joined once again by Adam and Don from Red Library, we even had a brief appearance by Kevin.

We continue our multi part series tackling the monster tome by Eugene McCarraher, The Enchantments of Mammon: How Capitalism Became the Religion of Modernity.

McCarraher believes that capitalism displaced religion and disenchanted the world and that Capitalism then became a religion itself, replacing the sacramental enchantment of the pre-capitalist world with a pecuniary enchantment that he calls Mammonism.

In our third installment we deal with the Robber Barons, corporate personhood, and the birth of American Imperialism.
