A brief 21st century Communist Manifesto
Capitalism is the first, but not the last industrial society in history. This remarkable but cruel mode of production has its feet in the era of the horse drawn carriage and its head in satellites orbiting planets and even exiting our solar system. What took months now takes hours, what took the efforts of thousands is now accomplished by a handful and what took days to communicate now takes microseconds. In every way capitalism, this inescapable, inevitable and necessary step in our economic emergence, has laid the foundation for a future and more highly organised mode of production.
