4 – Less is the new Moore

Reviewing Michael Moore & Jeff Gibbs’ recent film Planet of the Humans, hosts Will Beaman & Maxximilian Seijo reject and historicize the film’s advocacy for population control. By connecting reductive affirmations of scarcity in both Marxist ecological thinking and the film, with reference to Malthusianism, degrowth movements, Patricia MacCormack’s Ahuman Manifesto, and the late great heterodox microeconomist Fred Lee, they ultimately affirm a non-zero-sum environmental justice framework of social reproduction that centers agency at all levels of human-environmental relation.
