If socialism in one country was a pipe dream, so will be the idea of an ecological transition in one country. To make it work, the Green New Deal will have to be internationalized.

The damage caused by air pollution is now being compared to the effects of tobacco use. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), air pollution poses the greatest environmental threat to global health in 2019, killing seven million people prematurely every year, which is around the number of deaths caused by cigarettes.

There have been millions of conflicts that reflect the fundamental antagonism between the working class and capital: in workplaces, in politics, in most of the institutions that help make the system tick. Through struggles, workers, sometimes in alliance with peasants, have won markedly better working conditions, protective laws, extensive social welfare provisions, even, in a few cases, sweeping revolutionary transformations. They have fought against racism and sexism and the destruction of Mother Earth. Indeed, the working class has significantly changed the world.

"Interesting article in parts. The brief exploration of direct vs. representative democracy poses a question we don't think about often, let alone discuss. If representative democracy leads to "oligarchy" (we have called it "bureaucracy" in unions and left parties) and direct democracy has a definite tendency to wear people out, what can we do? Of course, this is a problem we'd love (theoretically) to be facing now or soon, but, even though it isn't urgent for us, it is a question that haunts the history of revolution." - Gene McGuckin
