Anti-Capitalist Meetup: Sustainability, capitalism, and the tendency to oligopoly by Don Mikulecky

It has been said many times that "sustainable capitalism" is an oxymoron. There are reasons why people believe this. The nature of capitalism has the need for growth built in. If there were any really strong contradictions in Tuesdays SOTU speech they rest right here. The call for economic growth and some sort of action toward addressing the climate change problem are really at odds with each other in their present context.

Anti-capitalist meetup: How did we get here? A look at human social evolution. And a book preview by Don Mikulecky

Our new book: Global Insanity: How Homo sapiens Lost Touch with Reality while Transforming the World Is about to come out. This diary is a brief introduction to the book with additional comments about why it is in the Anti-Capitalist Meetup tonight. I will start by saying that the frames "capitalist" and "anti-Capitalist" are really not of much use anymore. We have created an entire new epistemology. The old categories neither work nor do the free us from what has caused us the problem. Any attempt to work within the old paradigm feeds the system that enslaves us.
