“.. renowned academic David Harvey asks if it is time to look beyond capitalism towards a new social order that would allow us to live within a system that really could be responsible, just, and humane?” (RSA Animate)

Good description of the current crisis of capitalism, Karl Marx’s ‘shrinking rate of return’ observation, and ends suggesting senisible people have to join an anti-capitalist organization.

His description, and action suggestion come straight from the Communist Manifesto.
