The current News & Letters lead article (http://newsandletters.org/paris-climate-accords-suicidal-complacency-spurs-protests/) contrasts the world’s state powers’ hifalutin self-congratulatory rhetoric over their Paris Agreement on climate change with the down-to-earth ecological movement. Paris officials attempted to stifle any expression of that movement even as it is the real source impelling the totally insufficient and legally non-binding agreement. The stark contrast is between capitalist development and what Marx called human development.
Come to a discussion of the philosophic roots of Eco-socialism laid out by Marx first in his concept of Alienated Labor in 1844, through Capital to his vision of a new society and concept of organization in the 1875 Critique of the Gotha Program.
