Man-Made Disasters?

‘Our fault’? More than just ‘man-made’, some of the biggest disasters are in fact the direct consequence of the world capitalist system of production that has concentrated wealth in a handful of monopoly capitalists at the expense of the environment and the majority of the toiling classes who wallow in abject poverty and desperation. The wanton plunder of nature and the promotion of consumerist lifestyles among the affluent classes can be located in the context of an economic system that seeks only the endless accumulation of wealth no matter what the environmental and social costs. The most massive environmental destruction are in the main caused by by big corporations and capitalist states.
