Here is a near 100 page document about our global predicament.
From International Expert Panel, Environment of Peace, Stockholm, May 2022.
I haven’t even bothered reading it. Why? I know what it’s going to say. I’ve read dozens of documents like this. I can’t be bothered reading them any more. This is because I know nothing will be done, nothing will change.
Let’s look at some searches for terms in the document (in no particular order).
Capitalism : 0 matches.
Capital : 0 matches.
$ (sign) : 17 matches.
Trillion : 12 matches.
Billion : 20 matches.
Million : 21 matches.
(Note: Not all “-illions” are related to dollar signs.)
Power : 76 matches.
(Note: Power is most often linked to, in the same sentence, various aspects of government, legislative and national power or else to physical power like hydropower for example.)
Economic : 45 matches.
Political : 22 matches.
Political economy : 2 matches (in the notes on sources).
Socio-economic : 2 matches.
Democracy : 8 matches.
Democratic : 4 matches.
No mention of capital or capital as power. No mention of any framework or theory which might explain why nothing has changed yet.
