Lobster Capital: Coaxing Money Out of Alienated Young Men's Pockets

Abstract

Jordan Peterson's success is sometimes baffling, but if we apply a Marxian framework of commodities and alienation, it's not hard to see capitalism at play in the social space. It would be a mistake to argue with Peterson when he says young men are alienated; a more intriguing angle is accepting this idea and linking it with the broader social and economic alienation we all experience.
