Life After Capitalism

Mariam Elzein

In a world of communism, it is rather naive for one to envision a society in which hierarchy and conflict are wholly absent. Differences of opinion, conflict of interest, and belief systems will remain in existence in any conceivable world. As Aristotle once stated, “man is by nature a political animal” because he is a social creature with the power of moral reasoning and speech. The world as we know it has become a world in which technology has strived to enable all of humanity the option in choosing the life style that they wish to inhabit. It is here in which mankind will be faced with his real, permanent problem -“how to use his freedom from pressing economic cares, how to occupy the leisure, which science and compound interest will have won for him, to live wisely and agreeably and well.” -John Maynard Keynes
