I had a hunch Ryan :)

I just challenged that because people do believe it (even on the so-called "left") and it is a big part of the problem.

I do not discredit capitalism completely it could work on a local/smaller scale. Perhaps a hybrid economy would work better. An economy where a person could not only buy but freely trade their labour for goods, goods for labour, goods for goods and labour for labour. But how we go from our current global plunder form of capitalism to that, to be honest I'm not sure.

Perhaps the first step is to dramatically decrease our consumption and then see if we even have a global economic system left to rehabilitate? Thinking along those lines, I look toward some of these groups/sources for inspiration:
