Climate Change and Revolution
Over the past few months, climate changes have become a much-debated topic in the media and in general, in many Western countries. We have known about it for a very long time, but recently it has become a word on everyone's lips, something that we feel strongly about. Surely, of late there has been extreme weather in more varieties than we could imagine, as well. Odd weather has become the norm.
As history shows us, social change can happen very fast, once there is a critical energy in the population; once the time is ripe. For many years now, social change has seemed illusory - an illusion in itself. I think the time for another major social change is coming close. The capitalist economic system will be put to task, and concern about the ongoing climate changes will be the fuel. In this process, intellectuals and activists may play a positive part, providing insights and analysis.
