Think about the strangeness of today’s situation.
Thirty, forty years ago, we were still debating about what the future will be: communist, fascist, capitalist, whatever. Today, nobody even debates these issues. We all silently accept global capitalism is here to stay.

On the other hand, we are obsessed with cosmic catastrophes: the whole life on earth disintegrating, because of some virus, because of an asteroid hitting the earth, and so on.

So the paradox is, that it’s much easier to imagine the end of all life on earth than a much more modest radical change in capitalism.
