NY Times Opinion: Capitalism Is A Threat To The World And Must Be Replaced

The NY Times published an opinion piece yesterday titled “The Climate Crisis? It’s Capitalism, Stupid” which argues that capitalism is the real threat to the environment, a threat which must be eradicated if we are to survive. There’s nothing subtle about this piece. The author, who is a professor at Arizona State University, says capitalism is the problem and environmentalism is the movement that can supersede it.

    This is the same paper that thought Stalin was a great leader during his reign of terror.

    • If socialism worked Venezuelans would have a chicken in every pot.

      Under socialism they don’t even have the toilet paper to put by the pot.

      The NYT really liked the Castro brothers.

    The Times has been singing this dirge forever.

    We need to start beating the living daylights out of people who say things like this. They are advocating turning us all into slaves, and they literally need to die.

    Ahh yes, lets replace a system that is better for the environment with socialism, which shows little regard for the environment.

      The incredible pollution wreaked in Communist countries have been excused by the Progressives by calling countries such as China, Russia, and Cuba not true Communist countries, as they didn’t fully implement Communism. The argument about failing Communist countries is always met by excuses that the Communism there wasn’t done right. Every time.

        I’m thinking the “no true Scottsman” fallacy should be renamed the “no true communist” fallacy.

    Why mince words. “Communism vs Capitalism vs Environmentalism”.
    Multi “culturalism”
    What the environmental end game to save the planet is, is to leave the planet without people on it. Or very few.
    That is the game folks. They have been spelling it out in front of our faces for years.
    Heck, here is an example article from 2005:


    If the link does not work, google (or whatever it) and there it is. There are shows, apocalyptic movies galore. There are monuments to it and religions that want to wipe YOU out.
    Divide and…..we have become a world possessed. Revenge!
    First came the apologies, atonement, absolution!
    now comes the revenge, rebellion, revolution….

    The Times is clearly trolling. Ignore it.

    In the daily instances of where people vote with their feet, they are relocating to capitalist nations, not to commie countries. For example, Miami is largely Cuban these days, rather than Havana being filled with Americans.

    In fact, Cubans build ingenious boats to travel the 90 miles to the US as they seek to escape Castrostan.

      I’d say Cubans are whole hell of a lot better than neanderthal muslims from terrorist states across the pond. Pick your poison.

      There was a story of two young Cuban men who stowed away in the landing gear of a plane to escape Cuba. One survived by the skin of his teeth, but sadly, his friend fell to his death during takeoff.

    If this wasn’t so dangerous and sad, it’d be funny.

    Those who defend Communism are the ones who refuse to give up their capitalist lifestyles.
