A solution

October 30, 2023

What with the ongoing horrors in Gaza, the seemingly endless Ukraine-Russia war, the thousands of people fleeing conflict and extreme deprivation to seek refuge in safer places, and the relentless rise of global temperature, it is tempting to despair of finding any solution to the world’s problems. It’s important to remember, however, that there is a solution – to dismantle the system that is the root cause of all of these problems – capitalism – and replace it with a humane society that does not have money or borders – socialism.

A moneyless, non-market, democratically run society of common ownership and collective production would eliminate war and poverty, and allow us to concentrate on limiting the environmental damage caused by modern industry.
