The Future as Transformation
by Birgit Mahnkopf, Luxemburg 2/2015
There is no future with present-day capitalism. Capitalism stands for a movement of endless profit-making. Only a radical breach with the capitalist accumulation dynamic can nurture the hope of a reasonably tolerable future for human civilization on this planet.
Climate change is not avoidable anymore today even if its cumulative effects are first expected in the middle of the millenium.
Ms. Mahnkopf is a professor of European social policy in Berlin.
Joe Kennedy was incredible. Hear his 13 minute speech: “Resist Trump’s divisiveness; we are all worthy. They are turning life into a zero-sum game.”
