Originally published in Dutch in
2017, this essay is a critique on the intellectual hold of destructive,
non-sustainable capitalism on Western thought. It challenges the way that
Soviet and Chinese totalitarianism has been used to discredit the idealism of
19th century communism.
Reaching out from the
intellectual and historical legacy of Karl Marx and Rosa Luxemburg, Peek
investigates what he sees as the inevitable failure of capitalism, and argues
for a fairer redistribution of knowledge, power and income.
