Yes, we need a revolution. We have to get rid of the entranched interests of parasitic capitalism and I'm sorry but it will not be possible to do that gently.
Most revolutions have begun in hope and gentleness. The entrenched interests started trying to defend their property and money, which escalated and ended in a bloodbath.
I truly don't know how to avoid a bloodbath.
Sometimes, after the bloodbath is over, sadder and wiser people come together in compromise.
But something dramatic is coming down the pike towards us.
No, I don't know how to avoid it. I don't think we can go around the bloodbath to get to the sadder and wiser people first.
It may be the end of humans or it may just be the end of monopolistic predatory capitalism.
May I suggest an excellent book: Andrea Malm: How to Blow Up a Pipeline.
