The capitalist economy’s growth imperative relies on the high efficiency of polluting fossil fuels to sustain itself, manifested in the stark rise in carbon emissions and global warming since the industrial revolution. The capitalist economy is historically built on colonial resource extraction abroad and has only survived by these same means. Still today, the fuels and resources for the Global North are obtained by means of gross human rights violations, exploitative work conditions, and localised ecological degradation in the Global South. It is this system of infinite growth that is currently driving the planet to climate breakdown and ecological Armageddon.

Communist Countries

http://worldpopulationreview.com/cou...ist-countries/

Under the combined political theory of Marxism and Leninism, the concept of private property and an economy centered on profits are replaced with public ownership. An overall communal control of both natural resources and the means of production are also characteristics of communism. This includes open access to mills, factories, and mines to name a few sources of production. During the twentieth century, about one-third of the world’s population lived under Communist rule. The region that contained the most heavily concentrated Communist countries was the Soviet Union.

The Soviet Union experienced an inefficient economy, and the poor performance of the Soviet Union led to the country’s economc collapse in the early 1990s.

The countries that were formerly part of the Soviet Union include...

Armenia
Azerbaijan
Belarus
Estonia
Georgia
Kazakhstan
Kyrgyzstan
Latvia
Lithuania
Moldova
Russia
Tajikistan
Turkmenistan
Ukraine
Uzbekistan
As World War II started coming to an end, many European countries were divided based on the political parties they supported. Nations took sides, with some countries supporting the Axis Powers, while others were in full support of the Allies. A handful of countries that were in agreeance with the Allies became known as the Soviet-controlled Eastern Bloc.

The countries that made up the Eastern Bloc were in favor of communism, and they were officially controlled by the Soviet Union.

Wrong...

However, without this increasing growth, the economy falters and even collapses in recession, putting shops out of business, pushing communities into unemployment, and creating grim economic hardship and social fallout. This creates an impossible dilemma for those running society’s political institutions – they are unable to keep the economy afloat and tackle climate breakdown at the same time"

For the first time in its history, Western Civilization is in danger of being destroyed internally by a corrupt, criminal ruling cabal which is centered around the Rockefeller interests, which include elements from the Morgan, Brown, Rothschild, Du Pont, Harriman, Kuhn-Loeb, and other groupings as well. This junta took control of the political, financial, and cultural life of America in the first two decades of the twentieth century.
