Some hope that capitalism will deal with climate change. It may be the ultimate opportunity to get rid of the then useless workers who just live on state funds. The robots will do all the essential work in your rich man’s atmospheric bubble.
Socialism in Russia and the USSR did not work. It had from the outset too many enemies, and even then the west, fresh from the 1st world war, sent troops and weapons to help the white army. The Russian revolution, having just won control with a programme of socialism, had to fight a few more years of bitter fighting. There was a robust debate between Lenin who felt that Communism in one country will not succeed and hoped that the Russian revolution would ignite similar revolutions in Europe, but it was not to be. Later the fight intensified between the internationalists and the localists and ended up with Stalin as a winner, and the rest as they say is history. The tragedy of socialism is that this one go at trying it has failed, and although China has turned into a success story, it is now becoming very much a capitalist society to survive this rampant market capitalism.
Please show me where the hope of this new socialism is going to come from?
