In arriving at a synthesis between ecosocialism and ecoanarchism, Ted Trainer argues that the kind of socialism he supports avoids domination, hierarchy, authoritarianism, centralisation and top-down power.
Ecosocialists and ecoanarchists share an anti-capitalist stance, both viewing capitalism as the root of numerous social and environmental problems, writes Hans Baer.
Despite the failure of previous efforts to create socialist systems, ecosocialism remains a visionary alternative, writes Hans Baer.
Peter Boyle reports on Ecosocialism 2020, which brought together activists from Brazil, Malaysia, the Philippines and Australia, to discuss how to step up the fight for system change.
Ted Trainer argues that ecoanarchism, not ecosocialism, has the potential to avert catastrophic climate change as the state cannot be relied on as the basic determinant in society.
Ecosocialists and ecoanarchists need to come up with strategies to transcend the problems and avert catastrophic anthropogenic climate change, argues Hans Baer.
The growing discussion about system change is the result of how barbarous capitalism has become, writes Peter Boyle.
If carbon continues to be pumped into the atmosphere, we may see the end of complex societies and the extinction of most species, writes Shawn Hattingh. But, we can still avoid climate catastrophe and build a radically democratic, egalitarian and caring society.
Public distrust in political parties and institutions is higher than it has been, yet we are a long way from where we need to be to even begin to challenge capitalism, writes Fred Fuentes. So what will it take to build the movement we need today?
The COVID-19 pandemic and anthropogenic climate change illustrate the need to transcend the capitalist world system with an ecosocialist one, argues Hans Baer.
