It’s unlikely that capitalism will end by anyone storming any kind of palace or government building. It will take a more general change in the way people organize themselves.
At its origins capitalism depends upon expropriation either from rival factions or from common assets. This takes the form of land grabs, “free trade” deals, wars and invasions or more general economic “restructuring” such as gentrification and elimination of public housing or services.
Any move away from capitalism will depend upon there being an effective counter-expropriation strategy, and that won’t be easy.

Teachers Strike in Denver, Asking for Aid Show more

Stop. feeding. the. algorithms. of. surveillance. capitalists.
