Militarized Fossil Capitalism Is The Problem; There Are Solutions

| Podcast

“The Earth Is Not For Sale.” That is the title of David Schwartzman’s new book, written with his son Peter. Both are environmental scientists who have worked on climate change issues for a long time. Schwartzman says the problem is that right now the earth is for sale and it shouldn’t be. He discusses what he calls “militarized fossil capitalism,” and  explains why it is a fundamental problem driving the climate crisis. Schwartzman outlines the possible scenarios for the future, what needs to be done to have a chance for a positive outcome (he believes that is still possible) and how we get there. We also cover recent news and actions.

    Kevin, if by “MILITARIZED FOSSIL CAPITALISM” you mean that this Disguised Global Crony Capitalist Empire IS THE PROBLEM; then, yes, you are certainly correct, and yes, THERE is a SOLUTION:

    IMHO, if ‘we the American people’ become — pissed enough, educated enough, and strategic enough to fire a; — loud, public, sustained, ‘in the streets’, and ‘in the voting booths’, and ‘in a mass movement’, but totally nonviolently — “SHOUT (not shot) heard round the world” to ignite an essential second American people’s peaceful “Political/economic & social Revolution Against Empire” [Justin du Rivage] as Bernie implied in his 2015 initial and incomplete call for just a “Political Revolution” — then we the people of America, and all ‘citizens of our world’ might, and just could, hopefully overcome this damned Disguised Global Crony Capitalist EMPIRE before it kills our kids, grand-kids, our country, our failing environment, and our entire little fragile world!
