Our planet is gripped by twin crises of the most fundamental nature — social (mass poverty, austerity, militarism etc) and environmental. In this document, the Democratic Socialist Party argues that they spring from the same cause — the capitalist system which places the ruthless pursuit of profit by the few before the needs of the vast majority of humanity.
Environment, Capitalism and Socialism provides a comprehensive overview of the environmental crisis, the various explanations advanced for it and the responses to it. The document argues strongly for the need to build a mass popular movement to fight the corporate planet wreckers and create a socialist order in which human beings will be in harmony with their environment.
Included here as an appendix is editor Dick Nichols’ thorough critique of so-called green taxation, often put forward as the answer to the crisis.
