So great to meet you Poster Boy ~! It continues to astound me how the early creators of capitalist theory and industrialization did not consider limits, or that the "endless growth" paradigm was out of touch with reality, or that there would be long-lasting consequences of resource extraction, or that the arc of capitalism would not end at the point of destruction. Perhaps the prevailing Christian myth of the time i.e. "man at the top of the pyramid of life" or the "dominator of creation" had a lot to do with it. How much was Marxist theory adopted by the early industrialists? Sadly to say this is one subject I've yet to research on. (I've been too busy with Indigenous Studies ~! LOL)

Fast-forward to today, and the extent of how capitalism is embedded in our thought and behavior is mind-boggling. Even progressive and alternative writers, practitioners and speakers want to be a "huge success" - isn't that at the core a capitalist value? It shows up across the board in the boomer generation, but also in the generations that follow. There must be alternatives to self-worth than the standards of fame, success and wealth - and yet as long as we keep subscribing to those values capitalism will continue. And that's just one example ~! LOL
