talking about an "apolitical" Gamer™ centrist that I know that finally was willing to consider the socialist POV after years of me arguing against:
the employer/employee relationship, social alienation, the culture industry / the spectacle / entertainment loaded with bourgeois values
and all of this usually doesn't register, he calls it 'too abstract and rational' (he's a very emotional person).
His metaphysics is very individually reductive and he 'likes psychology more than other social sciences' and this has ended up being quite a difficult terrain for me in comparison to conversing with others who are more socially aware (and have more close associates).
Could anyone give a tip on some literature on how to BTFO (in a non-complicated way):
idealism, apoliticism/centrism/welfare capitalism and full-time immersive entertainment-escapism (a solipsistic silo from struggle) it'd be very helpful.
I've personally only engaged with communist lit for the purpose of bracing for revolution and lack the pedagogic perspective.
