On Contact: Ecosocialism

On the show this week, Chris Hedges talks to writer, teacher and activist Victor Wallis about the prospect and need for ecosocialism. Wallis’ book is entitled ‘Red-Green Revolution: The Politics and Technology of Ecosocialism’.

Today we discuss socialism, capitalism, and ecocide with Victor Wallis. “The problem is it’s not enough to run all of our private cars with solar cells. The whole problem of how much is used up in the way of materials, how much space is taken up and also the fact that if you don’t change the social configuration of power, any progressive change that you might bring about can easily be undone by the same people who put them there in the first place.”
