Capitalism is so yesterday. It's the new year - out with the old, in with the new! This week on Post-Carbon Radio, we start off 2015 on a deep dive into capitalism and the climate crisis with Cynthia Kaufman, author and Director of the Institute of Community and Civic Engagement at DeAnza College. http://www.deanza.edu/communityengagement/ http://faculty.deanza.edu/kaufmancynthia/
Hold on to your seats - it's fast-paced and fun! After a big-picture history of how we got into this pickle, Cynthia brings us lots of good news about how to get out of it. For one, although it's wily and adaptive, capitalism isn't the undefeatable monolith we sometimes think it is, so we don't have to overthrow it all at once to halt its devastating effects. What's more, solutions are already available; what's good for the climate is good for our happiness, and there is plenty of wealth and leisure time to go around. Cynthia uses feminist theory to help us figure out how to start, which is easier once we realize half the economy isn't capitalist, anyway. Don't worry; we didn't miss racism or patriarchy as the colors of the really-existing capitalism we have. We discuss Cynthia's two books, Ideas for Action: Relevant Theory for Radical Change and Getting Past Capitalism: History, Vision, Hope. Some serious theory made useful and hopeful in down-home, common-sense, bite-sized pieces.
