Now that we have expanded on Jack's story, and its philosophical implications, we are in a position to see how 'theory' of Radicalism really just boils down to the 'psychology' of Radicalism.

We began this series by looking briefly at a young guy named Jack, and the transformation in his thinking about life, values, and the nature of reality; a transformation that began with a significant incident in his life... his father leaving him.
To understand Marx, you simply have to understand Hegel. And to understand Hegel, all you need to do is listen to parts 1 thru 4 of this series! Woot! And once you understand Hegel, you'll understand Global Warming "Theory". (No seriously.) Oh,
