Capitalism is responsible

While calls for changes to the power grid or for a “green transition” have persuaded some sections of the left and environmentalist movements that climate catastrophe can be dealt with by reforming capitalism, we think differently. We believe that capitalism is an unsustainable system with respect to the economy, social relations, and the environment as well. Thus, it is necessary for us to destroy this system in order to build a new society that is sustainable, equitable, and united in solidarity; a socialist society.

We invite you to read the articles that we have on offer here in this special edition. On top of deepening our understanding of the problems that capitalism poses for the environment, these articles revive the Marxist understanding of ecology, and expand on Marx and Engels’ work studying the inherent, unsustainable contradictions posed by capitalism’s endless expansion on a planet with finite natural resources.
