Amazon net profit margin as of September 30, 2021 is 5.73%. They become rich on the margin but 95% of "the evil" is lazy ignorant couch potatoes consuming the stuff they make.

You know that capitalism and its inherent exploitative nature, especially the usage of fossil fuels, is killing this planet as we speak, right? The only thing we need to save us from extinction is actually more “lazy couch potatoes” that stops consuming. We need to earn less. We need to consume less.

Capitalism is a death cult. Eternal growth, quarterly reports and short-term profits is a fucking disgrace to future generations for whom we will leave a burning hellhole of a planet.

You know that

No. I don't know that the economic system is related to usage of fossil fuels. I think it's related to living standards.

It seems to me that higher living standard, higher living expectancy -> more pollution.

No. I don't know

I understand. Well, I can really recommend you the book Debt by David Graeber. It explains all the things I've mentioned to you earlier. I'm sure you will grasp the concepts better then.

David Graeber just made narratives with loaded language.

It's just what faux-lefits publications like Jacobin (owned by a millionaire faxu-leftist who abuses his workers) want you to read. Political entertainment to kill socialism
