It struck me today that capitalism is something we have to survive. Because if we don’t work and spend most of our waking time making money to put food on the table, we will be on the street and die.
Whereas climate is the other big one we have to survive. But most of us spend virtually zero of our time and energy on the problem, largely because the levers of power to the solutions are not within our reach.
We would love to help the revolution so the human race can survive the climate, but we’re all too busy trying to survive capitalism.
Climate vs capitalism is the ultimate battle and contradiction.
