Easier to Imagine the End of the World than the End of Capitalism?
Luke Cooper (Richmond, AIUL)
The contemporary political imagination is characterised by ‘capitalist realism’: the widespread belief there is no alternative to capitalism. If even today’s dissident movements cannot generate a sense of a realisable utopia, then where does this leave the emancipatory hopes of radical modernity? Luke Cooper discusses “what’s left after history ended”.
Luke Cooper, Assistant Professor in International History at Richmond, AIUL is author (with Simon Hardy) of Beyond Capitalism? The Future of Radical Politics (Zero Books).
