Politically, I'm most easily described as a Leftist. Capitalism in its current world form is both revolutionary and self destructive. How this self destruction will happen is a matter of debate, but it will revolve around the contradiction between capitalism's revolutionary internationalism and the political constraints in a world of nation states. Yet, if either blow up due to these contradictions - the world's economic and political structures go down with them. We fundamentally need as human beings to find a better way to run things - something which involves many more people in the decision making process, is much more equal, and where technology is used to increase leisure time and fulfill fundamental human needs.
