This week’s Sprouts features “Capitalism is War”, the first episode of “Capitalism is the Crisis”, a four-part audio documentary about the destructive record of capitalism and the current disasters it has fomented.
For the last five centuries the Western capitalist system has been subjecting most of the world`s people to a permanent crisis of endless war, massive poverty, environmental degradation and economic instability. Capitalism has been built through slavery, imperialism, colonialism and neocolonialism. More than a billion people have been killed by capitalism making it the greatest crime committed against humanity.
Lately the crisis generated by capitalism has moved into the centres of Western power North America and Europe.
1. “Capitalism is War”: Capitalism has inflicted war on most of humanity for the last 500 years. This episode focuses on the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars and shows how both stem from the needs of capitalism for resources and markets.
