Description

The baseline is reset and we start off anew, with the goal of squeezing in even more output into the same amount of time. The first part of this book is absolutely brutal, and I had to take a lot of breaks and literally walk away from it. La naiba, am ajuns pe drumul ăsta să tratăm și femeia ca pe ceva ce trebuie exploatat, de dragul creșterii. Het is gewoon inherent onmogelijk, maar in onze maatschappij is het ook bijna onmogelijk om er van af te wijken. This book is a great companion book to the one I've mentioned before "The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know Is Possible" by Charles Eisenstein.

He is a Visiting Senior Fellow at the International Inequalities Institute at the London School of Economics, and Senior Lecturer at Goldsmiths, University of London.

Who would sorrows bearTo choke and die a cancerous life,But that the dread of life without the car,The undiscovered country in whose bournOur dreams might live, puzzles the will,And makes us rather bear those ills we have,Than fly to others that we know not of? Anyway, the key learning from reading part one is: capitalism bad, capitalism has to be bad because of the structures of exploitation that created and perpetuate it, capitalism will be bad in the future, and we have 500 years of history to prove it.

It's not just the kind of abstract and sometimes metaphysical philosophising that you often read in degrowth books, especially French ones. The Black Death reduced the reserve of laborers, thereby increasing the bargaining power of laborers. Even more problematic, though, is that he glorifies the animism of primitive cultures, and criticizes the Axial Age for promoting the idea of “dominion.Actually, it will sooner or later kill us if we don't question what seems to be the status quo, but actually has been around for only about 500 years.
