Capitalism has only existed for about 400 years, given its absolute maximum timeline, which is the timeline that includes the Atlantic Slave Trade. Industrial capitalism has only existed for about 150 years. Humanity has existed for more than 100,000 years.

There is no greater historical amnesia then the idea that capitalism has always existed, and yet, this idea is far more pervasive than you would think. This idea is poisonous. It corrodes all potential for change. Don’t let the rich ghouls who control the world erase our collective history. We have been different, we are building something different now, and things will and can be different in the future. Humanity will outlive capitalism, if we have anything to say about it.

Don't be the product, buy the product!
