Anarchist vs Marxist approaches to the climate crisis
About this session
Marxists and (most) Anarchists would agree that capitalism is environmentally destructive, and has to be destroyed.
However, from this point we diverge on many questions. Why does capitalism destroy the environment? What's the relationship between humans and the planet? Should environmental politics centre humans? What should our tactics be in the fight for environmental justice today? By what means could we destroy capitalism, and what society do we want to see instead?
Join this session to discuss the differences between Marxist and Anarchist approaches to the climate crisis, and why those serious about ending the environmental degradation wrought by capitalism need to build Marxist, rather than anarchist politics.
