The environment crisis - can capitalism solve it?

By Maurie Crow


The paper is based on a speech by Maurie Crow at a forum organised on the subject by the Communist Party of Australia in Melbourne in August, 1971. Maurie debates on the future ecological imbalance, warning about its irreversible character. In the period of the completion of the transitional phase of socialism on a world scale and from socialism to communism, the problem of ecology seems likely to take on new political dimensions. In his view the situation is one where production methods, administrative controls and political parties are becoming increasingly out of touch with man's needs
