Walter Mosley on the mysterious future beyond the frames of capitalism and socialism.


We have to recognize the failure of capitalism. We have to recognize the impossibility of socialism. We have to recognize what it is that we're working for in the world, which is basically as good a life as we can get in this brief span that we have. And we have to recognize who we are in relation to these things - and not allow these incredible, large systems which govern us, but don't care about us - to take over.

Author Walter Mosley explores the mysteries of life, labor and freedom in the 21st century - from the failures of global capitalism and the impossibility of socialism, to technology's toll on humanity's understanding of itself, its needs and its limitations - and explains why building a future that serves humankind starts with destroying the ideological frames that reduce people to servants of a system, not masters of their potential.

Walter is author of Folding The Red Into The Black: Or, Developing A Viable Untopia For Human Survival In The 21st Century from OR Books.
