Occupy Movement Wants To Abolish Capitalism

A video has surfaced that confirms the intentions of many in the Occupy movement: They want to dismantle capitalism entirely. Check out this footage from a panel discussion at a an event at the New School in New York. The panel is titled: “The Abolition of Capitalism.” (The panel starts about 10% of the way through the video.)

Here’s what two of the panelists had to say:

David Graeber: “It strikes me that if one is going to pursue this to its logical conclusion, the only way to have a genuinely democratic society would also be to abolish capitalism and the state.”

Marina Sitrin: “We can’t have democracy with capitalism… Democracy and capitalism don’t work together.”
