If this is about returning to that bad old capitalism, the one in which the line was drawn much closer to the bottom, count me out. If it's truly about civil, political and economic disobedience, count me in.
"Economic growth," the very engine that perpetuates capitalism, insures ongoing catastrophe for humans, animals and all habitat. Let's imagine and develop another world, a system that doesn't have to be enforced with lies, obfuscation and state violence.
While we're at it, let's dispense with defending the state's monopoly on violence. If we're to succeed, we'll have to be willing to accommodate that much-ballyhooed "diversity of tactics." Nonviolence is a strategic decision (and a pretty damn good one in many cases), not a religion to adhere to. The planet and its inhabitants need us to be willing to do whatever it takes to make the change we so desperately desire.
If this new world is to be more egalitarian and healthier, it will include a greatly reduced "standard of living." Here we are in the center of the horrors, the good ole US of A, which charges us with even more responsibility.
Let's do it.
