It is a weapon pointed at the living world. We
urgently need to develop a new system.

By George Monbiot, published in the Guardian 25th
April 2019

For most of my adult life, I’ve railed against

Capitalism steals from the young and the
unborn. It’s time for a new system, that respects their rights
