One might even say that it's one of the scandals of capitalism that most capitalist firms, internally, operate communistically.
Hiç kimse radikal anlamda daha iyi bir dünyanın mümkün olmadığını bilemeyeceği için, bugün önümüzde duran kirliliği haklılaştırmayı ve yeniden üretmeyi sürdürmekte ısrar ederek herkese ihanet etmiş olmuyor muyuz..?
Çoğunlukçu demokrasi, kökeni itibanyla, özünde militer bir kurumdu. Tabii ki bunun, "demokrasi" olarak görülen tek demokrasi türü sayılması Batılı tarih yazımının kendine özgü bir ön yargısıdır.
The one thing that's clear is that new ideas won't emerge without the jettisoning of much of our accustomed categories of thought—which have become mostly sheer dead weight, if not intrinsic parts of the very apparatus of hopelessness—and formulating new ones. This is why I spent so much of this book talking about the market, but also about the false choice between state and market that so monopolized political ideology for the last centuries that it made it difficult to argue about anything else.
Meanwhile, the U.S. debt remains, as it has been since 1790, a war debt: the United States continues to spend more on its military than do all other nations on earth put together, and military expenditures are not only the basis of the government's industrial policy; they also take up such a huge proportion of the budget that by many estimations, were it not for them, the United States would not run a deficit at all.
There is very good reason to believe that, in a generation or so, capitalism itself will no longer exist—most obviously, as ecologists keep reminding us, because it's impossible to maintain an engine of perpetual growth forever on a finite planet, and the current form of capitalism doesn't seem to be capable of generating the kind of vast technological breakthroughs and mobilizations that would be required for us to start finding and colonizing any other planets. Yet faced with the prospect of capitalism actually ending, the most common reaction—even from those who call themselves "progressives"—is simply fear. We cling to what exists because we can no longer imagine an alternative that wouldn't be even worse.
Who was the first man to look at a house full of objects and to immediately assess them only in terms of what he could trade them in for in the market likely to have been? Surely he can only have been a thief.
