Neil Faulkner offers a clear and concise description of our anti-human world history that displays the deeply perverted processes embedded in the construction of civilisations. He also gives general pointers regarding what needs to be done and advocates the necessity for a complete systemic change.

20.yy tarihini incelerken kimi yerleri oldukça hızlı geçiştirmesine rağmen (örneğin çin devrimi) bunun yanında teleolojinin oldukça olumlu bir boyuttan eleştirisi, faydalı bir kronolojik liste ve sevimli bir kaynakçayla hızlı bir Dünya tarihi okumak için faydalı. 3,5tan 4.

“The purpose of any economic system should be to produce the goods and services people need to live full and happy lives. But that is not the purpose of capitalism. Capitalism is a system of competitive capital accumulation driven by profit and the enrichment of the few. The drive for profit – as much as possible, as quick as possible, no matter how – had created the speculative bubble of the late 1920s. Now, in the crash, shoring up profits meant cutting wages, slashing services, and choking trade, thereby plunging the world into permanent slump.” 0 likes
“The bourgeoisie is leading its society to complete bankruptcy. It is capable of providing the people with neither bread nor peace. This is precisely why it cannot any longer tolerate the democratic order.” 0 likes
