CAPITALISM VERSUS THE THIRD INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION

Another thought-provoking article from the Scientific Alliance looks at the idea put out by some writers, that capitalism must be overthrown in the third industrial revolution. What these writers seem to overlook is that this revolution is not being driven by the "masses" at the bottom end of society, but by the philosophers at the top. I don't see how this revolution can succeed if it is not a popular mass up-rising. People will not fall so easily for these latter-day Karl Marx's with their ideas of utopia. However they can do a lot of damage trying.
