I had an epiphany recently when an activist on a ventilator pointed out that it wasn’t their revolution if they died because you couldn’t keep the hospitals running.

Criticising “capitalism” only gets so far: you have to slide the better version underneath it while it’s running. You have to save everybody.

Otherwise you’ll need to remind me - and then - why you thought you’d be better.

This is why I like to watch “capitalism” closely (and lift everything that works).


@mala ultimately, the evolution of Capitalism into a system that distributes wealth effectively is the only way to prevent periodical revolution/appalling human rights violation as standard, etc, etc. James asked me a sad question last night. If humans know everything is being destroyed, why don't we just stop it?
