A discussion I've had while talking about politics (and my anti-capitalist ideas) with people is that people often point out all the good capitalism has done, and how humanity has prospered more under capitalism than any other economic system.

And I don't deny that, yet at the same time that doesn't mean that capitalism is the final stage either. I think capitalistic society has existed long enough for us to recognize the areas where it falls short.


We get so settled into the idea that radical change can't/shouldn't happen. But that doesn't mean it's not worth trying, but there needs to be the will to make it happen. The will to step outside of what is comfortable/normal and a desire to want to try and improve things for everyone.
