PANEL TITLE: Ecosocialism vs. Capitalist Ecosuicide
FORMAT: 2-hour discussion led by three panelists, each of whom will present for fifteen minutes before engaging in dialogue with the other participants.
PANELIST ONE, Richard Smith, researcher and editor of the journal Capitalism, Nature Society will speak to the cross-theme of analyzing of the problem of catastrophic climate changes by demonstrating the inevitable links between capitalism and ecocide. Richard has great slides to illustrate his talk
PANELIST TWO, Richard Greeman Ph.D., ecosocialist writer, and creator of ‘The Revolutionary Kit,’ will address the problem “How To Get There from Here?” by developing a theory of Utopia and revolutionary emergence based on international networking and the Internet. Richard uses humor and fantasy to present the results of 40 years of research. His cross-theme is “another world is possible.”
PANELIST THREE, David Hookes Ph.D., is a Marxist physicist at the University of Liverpool, who was active with the Liverpool dockers strike and has attended several WSF’s. Dave will deal with the topic of positive and negative Utopias by critiquing the Russian Communist approach to ecology and proposing technologically feasible democratic Ecosocialism as an alternative. Dave’s cross-themes are “historical and international dimensions” and ‘”another world.”
Participants will be provided with handouts and encouraged to join in our international network and invited, if interested, participate in our conference on the same theme in the Crimea (Ukraine) later in July.
