The spillover event of Covid-19 is one of those occasions.
He observes, not without justification, that what Leninist organizations remain in existence are weak and incapable of seizing power. Was sent this piece through the Verso Book Club. I'm waiting for my copy of Grace Blakeley's Corona Crash to arrive, the sibling pamphlet by Verso on the topic, and honestly, I think these will be formative for my take on Covid-19. Throughout the whole section, Malm provided excellent examples of concepts and histories for both illustrating the problems that we're dealing with, and highlighting the ways in which our current situation is meaningfully different from past events.
COVID, climate change, and capitalism are inexplicably linked according to Malm and a very convincing case is made that any response to the current situation that doesn't start from with forcibly revamping our entire way of living from how we eat, travel, and heat our homes is doomed to an eternal recurrence of shit. Everyone should read this book.

Un libro importante, de lectura obligada para cualquier persona preocupada por el futuro de la Humanidad y del planeta.
The last chapter involves so many comparisons with what we ought to do and the October Revolution in 1917 that it feels rather comical.
