Just watched the video, your voice is pretty clear and easy to understand so that's good, and the information you gave was great. Much respect to you for doing a project like this.

I know I'm being way too picky here, but sometimes the language you used kind of threw me off a bit: the "evil like Hitler" thing was funny but I think it might be off-putting to some people who are just trying to learn about Marx's ideas. Another thing was when you were introducing the communist character and you said something like "educate the workers", personally I think a better phrase would be "educate other workers", because we are working class too.

Don't get me wrong though, I think using characters like that is a good idea because it introduces classes in a simple way.

Agreed, I was going to annotate the actual video with "obvious joke" when that part happened.

This is an excellent point.

I also use them to grab the attention of those with shorter attention spans.

For some reason, I had to delete one of the other videos before I could upload the newest one, youtube said they were too similar. You can comment on it here or revleft, I'll be checking both places, the topic in revleft will be made under Learning though may be later moved to Websites.

Nice to see Capital is still generating so much interest! Even during the 'darkest' days of the early 90s when the papers were full of gloating about the failure of 'communism/socialism' Capital always attracted sufficient numbers. The classroom was always running rarely below 20 people.

I am quite the voracious reader of Capital myself, having spent some years studying and teaching it (or trying to anyway). I am not entirely sure how you feel about supplementary readings but I have come to appreciate using secondary sources to facilitate one's understanding of the text as they can be extremely helpful, particularly when one has not read the book more than a measly half a dozen times. Of course, I don't mean to imply that these sources are intended to be a substitute for the actual text, but rather that they are only meant to supplement the readings in the text.

You may or may not find these helpful.

http://www.socanth.sfu.ca/documents/doc ... ne_Package Gary Teeple's Note to the Study of CV1
http://digamo.free.fr/dhcompa.pdf Harvey's Companion to Reading Capital volume one
http://marxismocritico.files.wordpress. ... apital.pdf Reading Notes on Marx's Capital Volume I,II,III by Simon Clarke

One suggest that I have is that since the first few chapters of Capital are the most 'arduous' (p.103), perhaps it is worth examining them in greater detail, particularly the famous section on commodity fetishism which brings the argument of chapter one together and forms, according to some, the basis of Marx's labour theory of value.
