All That is Sacred is Profaned: A Pagan Guild to Marxism

From the publisher Gods & Radicals

How does capitalism work (and why isn’t it working)? How do the rich use race and gender strife to divide and control the poor? What was life like before Capitalism, and what might it be like after? And what’s the relationship between Marx’s ideas about alienation and the Pagan desire to re-enchant the world?

All That Is Sacred Is Profaned is the text from Rhyd Wildermuth’s popular introductory course on Marxism, now available in print. Written for those without privileged academic experience and those too busy trying to survive to read economic theory, this book uses real-world examples to explain how capitalism operates, why it came about, and how it might be stopped.

All That Is Sacred Is Profaned isn’t just an economic or political text. Instead, Pagan and druid Rhyd Wildermuth teases out the intersections between Marx’s ideas and the core worldviews of animism and Paganism: the magical transformation of the world through labor, the inspirited nature of the things we humans create and trade, and the sacred aspects of the world crushed beneath the demands of profit.

All That Is Sacred Is Profaned in arranged in five sections:

  • Chapter One: What Capitalism is (and isn’t), and how it has come to control the way we see the world and each other

  • Chapter Two: How Capitalism works (and doesn’t), and why owners are always at odds with the people who work for them.

  • Chapter Three: Why Capitalism replaced feudalism and other forms of society, and how our modern image of the past is shaped by capitalism, not by history.

  • Chapter Four: How Colonialism and Slavery relate to Capitalism, and how racism and sexism developed as management strategies to keep the poor divided

  • Chapter Five: Why Capitalism cannot continue forever, how its internal contradictions are destroying nature and humanity, and how we might use Marx’s ideas to survive our current crises.

  • In addition, All That Is Sacred Is Profaned includes study questions, a glossary, and additional material for those who wish to learn more.
