Imagine: A Socialist Vision for the 21st Century

Imagine: A Socialist Vision for the 21st Century

by TommySheridan (Author), Alan Mc Coombes (Author)


In this work, free from jargon and dogma, Tommy Sheridan MSP and Alan McCoombes map out their political, social and cultural vision for Scotland and beyond in the 21st century. Examining the advances that have been made in all walks of life during the 20th century - in such diverse fields as science, health, manufacturing, food production, education, information technology and telecommunications, as well as culturally - the authors have concluded that the free market economic system is unable to utilize these advancements for the greater good of society, and worse, has been unable to tackle even the most basic world problems of hunger, poverty, homelessness and war. Their conclusions are ominous for the champions of profit and greed but offer hope to all those who can foresee the major economic, environmental, and social catastrophes which inevitably lie ahead if global capitalism is left unchallenged.
