If changes must happen to our current state of capitalism (1) , what might they be? How might they happen?
What does "taking down capitalism" even mean in this day and age? Is it unionizing? Is it educating the population in a better way? If everyone had equal access to and knowledge of the mechanisms of capitalism, would it allow capitalism to survive in its current form?
The global market, which is really the collective psychology and buying power of its participants, is game-theoretic in the most brutal of ways: any trader of these markets will tell you this. It is a game that everyone from birth is consigned to playing at this moment in our history. Wouldn't a better education in its dynamics allow for us, as a species, to better thrive?
(1) It is really a marvel to behold capitalism in its 21st century iteration. It really pushes limits of the human spirit in the most amazing and horrible ways. I call it "speculative technocapitalism" partly as a joke, but partly because of the great role that technology -- in the form of near-instantaneous communication of very complex information -- plays in maintaining its hegemony. Once upon a time, information only traveled as fast as the fastest horse. Now, we have extremely powerful, fragile networks of supply chains enmeshed with global political interests -- and still they manage to provide for so many yet alienate them in turn.
The Magnova community says Transition from speculative technocapitalism to an economy of gifts addresses the following issues. (Registered users can upvote/downvote these connections.)
