  1. The world is just getting better and better thanks to more growth and capitalism! Surely this is correct? After all, people like Hans Rosling and other "new optimists" claims this to be the case. In fact, they have been hammering down this notion a long time now, that everything is going just fine with the world today. But while their statistics and numbers are correct their conclusions are dishonest. In fact, these scientists and politicians, Rosling included, have actually used distorted statistics in an effort to push their pro-capitalism message while completely ignoring other crushing facts and realities of capitalism (such as global warming). Check out this video to hear a counter-argument to this common notion pushed by people like Hans Rosling: "Is the world only becoming better and better? How are increases in wealth and life expectancy affected by social inequalities? Why do we hear so little about the global increase in mental illness and its development over time? These are some of the questions that Roland Paulsen, associate professor of sociology, discusses in this video, which is also a comment on some of the claims of Hans Rosling and other New Optimists."
  2. George Monbiot tells it like it is! "We've got to go straight to the heart of capitalism and overthrow it." Getting rid of capitalism is the only hope we have of stopping climate chaos from destroying our human civilization.
  3. This is why young people love old socialists like Bernie Sanders and Jeremy Corbyn (spoiler: their success with young people is - luckily - based on their platforms and not on their charisma). Read the full article here: Why Are So Many Young Voters Falling for Old Socialists?
