Good article on the problem of social restructuring hyper-capitalist societies. It basically doesn’t work. As recognised here and in several responses the problem is late stage capitalism. Success means becoming a ‘product’ valued only by its profitability. And that means failure because the distortions of late stage capitalism must reject and replace every ‘product’. Feminism must be replaced with anti feminism that creates markets for women who accept repression and for men who were threatened. The advertising cycle sets realities and they are all equally demeaned. Confusion spreads and people lose interest.

While unsustainability is the primary reason capitalism is and must fail, destruction of any social value except profit makes it socially deadly. Greed is not s virtue.
