On the fall of capitalism, from counter-punch [View all]

http://www.counterpunch.org/2012/09/20/the-waning-of-the-modern-ages/

And the last paragraph:
"In a word, its number is up, and it is our fortune or misfortune, as I said before, to be living during a time of very large, and very difficult, transition. An old way of life dies, a new one eventually comes into being. Of this, the poet Mark Strand remarks: “No need to rush; the end of the world is only the end of the world as you know it.” For some odd reason, I find that thought rather comforting."

Morris Berman’s latest book is Why America Failed.
