On January 26 1788 the first of many British fleets carrying convicts arrived in what is now Sydney, Australia’s biggest city. Officially the date is celebrated as Australia Day.

text Post-capitalist Perspectives by Raul Zelik
For the first time in the history of humanity, we are living in a genuine world system, capitalism. It is winning to death.
