Digital technologies have helped capital to extend its grip ever deeper into our lives. But, leftist writer Evgeny Morozov tells Jacobin, the Left must also grasp these technologies’ potential benefits in building alternatives to neoliberalism.
Evgeny Morozov is an American writer, researcher, and intellectual from Belarus.
