FSP meeting: Marxist ecology – yesterday and today
February 13 @ 6:30 pm
Marx and Engels are often wrongly accused of caring only about industrial growth and the development of economic forces. In reality, both addressed environmental concerns in nearly everything they wrote. Even before the word “ecology” was coined, they repeatedly stressed the inseparable unity of humanity with nature, the inherent destructiveness of capitalism, and the necessity of socialism for the planet’s survival. Ecosocialist Peter Murray will examine writings by Marx and Engels on capitalist agriculture, soil ecology and nature and discuss the importance of Marxist ideas to the movement today.
Dinner will be served at 6:30 pm for a $10 donation, and the discussion commences at 7 pm.
