Liza R. and Jose Manuel
In the past two centuries, humankind has seen the development of our productive forces to a level previously undreamt of. What was once unimaginable is now commonplace. Never have we been so technologically advanced, never have we had such capability, never has there been such raw potential.
It is therefore a damning indictment of the capitalist order that our society languishes in hopeless disorder, driven to absurd contradictions by blind market forces, with no control over the great forces we have unleashed. Where there should be feasts there are famines. Where splendor is possible misery persists. Barbarism reigns on a mountain of human potential.
