Rinky-Dink Revolution: Moving Beyond Capitalism

This pamphlet tackles the question: how do we get from A to B, capitalism to post-capitalism?

It is critical reading to understand why:

* Capitalist-oriented industrial agriculture and its destruction of habitat are the upstream causes that led to the COVID-19 pandemic as well as other past and future pandemics of devastating, emerging viral pathogens.
* COVID-19 may trigger a collapse of the global capitalist system but it is not the cause.
* Health-care and public-health systems organized around capitalist principles don’t do well in pandemics, compared to those not organized around capitalist principles.
* The current economic collapse, triggered by a pandemic, opens a door for revolutionary transformation.

The pamphlet is also available in Spanish and Korean.
