“Marxism and Scientific Socialism as they emerged, they came to understand the concept of revolution as human beings advancing to higher stages of civilization.” — Caleb Maupin

  5. That was wonderful! You barely addressed planetary heat retention- don’t you think that it’s just the kind of situation that requires a revolutionary change to cope with? Yet it looks like the ruling class is largely holding back any progress in averting disaster and the small segment that sees profit ahead in renewable energy (It doesn’t really lend itself to enormous accumulation) is not growing quickly enough to overtake the big fossil fuel transnationals. In fact some of the tech solutions you referred to have already been invented, only to be squelched by those companies who are determined to retain the status quo. Where is the revolutionary potential located? I see the avant garde of the scientific community- those that are not owned by Monsatan, etc., as having the built in organization, the knowledge, & the will to change. Unfortunately they don’t see themselves as political actors, only advisors. I disagree with you about why the white working & lower middle class likes Trump. I think it’s 1. That he’s a billionaire & they’ve been indoctrinated to respect & identify with the rich. 2. That he’s fresh to the neoliberal dems, whom they despise. And 3. He’s a jingoistic racist. We are in a race against time. As you know, the IPCC, a very conservative body, has given the human race only 12 years to avoid an inexorable tipping point. Please let me know your ideas. I belong to the Green Party, which is pretty much halfway openly socialistic; I’d like to see them become a full-fledged socialist party.
