On the subject of whether capitalism is in crisis...it is easy to
see evidence of crisis...mass unemployment,financial dislocation,
beggars on the streets. But such evidence of crisis has been easy to
find in much of capitalism'sm history. A better question is whether
there have been any recent developments that threaten the fundamental
stability of the sytem. Here's a couple of suggestions -
1) The globalisation of the world economy undermining the nation state
2) The collapse of the communist block creating an integrated world
market and thus a world proletariat
3) The impossibility of major imperealist war because of the scale
of weapons of mass destruction
4) The development of communication resources allowing workers to
network on a non-heirarchical yet international basis
