The Ecological Challenge: Three Revolutions are Necessary

by Alternative Libertaire

For decades, anti-capitalists have rightly raised the question of the “redistribution of wealth” between the Global North and Global South. This idea has commonly been imagined to mean an end to the pillage of the Third World by the advanced industrialized powers, so that the people of the Global South are able to attain an equivalent level of development. This demand, put simply, means that the South should catch up to the North’s "standard of living."

But this old view is clumsy and over-simplified, since certain countries are already fully in the process of "taking their share" of the cake that is Planet Earth, and this is accelerating the destruction of the great ecological balances. The arrival of China and India as industrial, political and military powers obliges revolutionaries to rethink, from top to bottom, issues surrounding the model of development itself.

With a planetary ecological crisis on hand, it can no longer be denied that socialism will be incompatible with mass production and mass consumption. Indeed, even without returning to Malthusian catastrophe theories, we are forced to admit that the planet’s resources are not inexhaustible. These resources could provide for humanity’s needs, but only if they are used in a reasonable and rational way, i.e., in a manner directly opposed to capitalist logic, which in itself is a source of imbalance.

Lethal Labor: Meet the Tunnel Rats

"Tunnel Rats" of Washington, D.C. work in unforgiving conditions; temperatures often exceed 160-degrees, immense chunks of concrete plummet from the ceiling, and the perilous passages are engulfed in welding fumes, pulverized asbestos, and concrete dust. The shafts are so out of control, the Capitol Police refuse to venture into them out of concern for the safety of their dogs. The fire department will not attempt an emergency rescue as there is a lack of communication system and, due to the extremely cramped conditions, access is extremely limited. But that is merely the tip of the iceberg--the Architect of the Capitol had been purposely misleading them for years about the dangerous levels of asbestos exposure in the passages.
