Against Parasitic Capital: Ending the Coronavirus Pandemic and Climate Wartime Mobilization
In Corona, Climate, Chronic Emergency: War Communism in The Twenty-First Century, Andreas Malm carries the thesis that climate change interlaces with zoonotic spillovers in a self-perpetuating system that is likely to deliver new pandemics, constituting our current situation as a 'chronic emergency.' In this sense, the author defends the idea that state-led emergency measures must be taken against the mechanism of 'parasitic capital' on a global scale and in a synchronic manner, drawing from the ecological lessons of 'war communism.'
