However, a radical reformist perspective is perfectly possible and plausible. When facing the extermination of the poor, you can always hope to expand consumer goods, to bring abundance to disadvantaged sectors. And it even might be a good business to do so; after all, precisely what is always scarce in a system of such high productivity are consumers. Perhaps a Marshall Plan for the whole humanity. Perhaps a massive conversion of the arms industry to peace industry. Perhaps a campaign to show that it is in the very interest of capital, and of the administration, to save the ecosystem in which they themselves live. Maybe taking seriously the technological capacity to produce diversity and promote tolerance by creating diversified markets, filling the world of different colors and forms of life that coexist, that do not need to annihilate each other.
