“Dying for Capitalism is carefully reasoned and informed, spelling out what we can and must do, without delay.”
– Noam Chomsky 

We are dying—literally—from capitalism, and if our species is to survive we need a new abolitionist movement whose goal is to overturn capitalism and replace it with policies and politics that are designed to meet the needs of the many, instead of the bottom lines of the few.

Can the widespread notion that a green and peaceful set of technological reforms in the current economic and political system, a “green capitalism”, prevent disaster?

A triangle of extinction … capitalism, environmental destruction, and war, are creating an emergency that humanity-as-a-whole has never faced before.
