    Complex maths argument

    Start of the debate

    The complex maths gets nearest us, when it suggests that planning has to happen on a “firm” basis, but the comments generally are worth a read to those interested in such questions.

    I rather liked this comment:-“If your little sensibilities are hurt by strong language, I feel very sorry for you. But I stand by my choice of words. They’re actually rather tame in the face of what capitalism has done to the world—and what it will do.Capitalism is cancer, and yes, it must die. It is a profoundly immoral system, spreading like cancer into every nook and cranny of our lives, and its own internal logic requires that endless growth. This endless growth, this requirement, run straight into the wall of sustainability, and will destroy the planet if we don’t destroy capitalism first. Any system that depends upon endlessly increased extraction/consumption on a finite planet should not be allowed to be. And the fact that it also requires trillions of dollars of public money to keep it from collapsing every few years is just further proof of the madness of those who defend it.You can trot out all the little quotes you want by its defenders. They and you are nothing but shills for an evil, anti-democratic system. You either knowingly or witlessly shill for the 1% when you do, and for that, you should be ashamed.”http://crookedtimber.org/2012/06/09/red-plenty-or-socialism-without-doctrines/#comment-418462
