The world faces the greatest crisis in human history. Unchecked global warming heralds catastrophic climate change. Financial meltdown has tipped us into permanent stagnation. War is breaking up the international order. The gap between rich and poor has become a chasm. Democracy has been hollowed out. System Crash explains how this compound crisis is rooted in the pathological character of neoliberal capitalism. The system is unreformable and humanity stands at a crossroads. One possible future is a descent into the barbarism of war, poverty and climate catastrophe. Another is a collective movement designed to overthrow the lords of capital and build a new world based on democracy, equality, and solidarity. With chapters entitled Earth, Economy, Empire and Exploitation, System Crash is a short, punchy and apocalyptic treatise that explains how we got to where we are, why the crisis of the system is insoluble, and what we must do to overthrow our rulers, transform society, and save the planet. Unashamedly Marxist, it nonetheless rejects the failed models of the Old Left, identifying the radical urban youth of the neoliberal city as a new vanguard in the struggle for change, and calling for the creation of a democratic mass movement for red-green revolution.
