1 Honestly, at some point you have to ask yourself: if our economic system doesn't secure public health and well-being, and doesn't protect and regenerate ecology, then what's actually the point?

If capitalism is preventing a large majority of human population from leading happy and dignified lives, then why can't we change the economic system?
