As we view the current crises – over racist police murder and brutality, endless war, poverty wages, and environmental destruction – activists are increasingly looking at capitalism as the underlying source of these problems and the obstacle to their solution. While many point to neoliberal capitalism as the culprit, this implicitly suggests that another, more humane and just capitalism is possible. This meeting will take a different tack, examining capitalism as such, as a system in need of total uprooting.
Background readings for those interested these questions are almost limitless, but for starters we suggest Marx’s “Wage Labor and Capital,” a short text written for workers.
