We will read and discuss the just-published book by Fred Magdoff and Chris Williams, Creating an Ecological Society: Toward a Revolutionary Transformation. Sickened by the contamination of water, air, and the Earth itself, more and more people are coming to realize that it is capitalism that is, quite literally, killing us - and indeed, degrading the Earth’s very ability to support all forms of life. The authors identify the root causes of the global environmental crisis in capitalism’s imperative to make profits at all costs and expand without end. They lay out a program for building a society that is genuinely democratic, equitable, and ecologically sustainable.

Fred Murphy has co-led several MEP study groups on Marxism, science, nature,  and ecosocialism. He studied and taught historical sociology at the New School for Social Research.

Steve Knight has participated in and co-led MEP study groups on ecosocialism since 2015. His review of Anthropocene or Capitalocene? Nature, History and the Crisis of Capitalism appeared last year in the journal Marx & Philosophy
