Calls to reign in the excesses of capitalism; to better enforce laws; to increase oversight; to improve regulation. . . . This is a never-ending mostly centrist crusade to blunt the effects of a brutal and inhumane system that is functioning exactly as intended. The foundations of our system need to change profoundly and along with it what we call capitalism needs to be burned in the crucible of history. If such things as capitalism and industrialism were ever actually necessary in human progress they certainly are no longer and should be banished to the ages before we destroy ourselves, eyes wide open.

Sounds good to me! Sounds like progress is required, change. Because change is normal. Change is natural. Change is inevitable! So let’s just get on with it instead of resisting it and causing infinitely greater problems than would occur otherwise.

I think one way of looking at what we’re experiencing now is the result of holding on to some fanciful notion of what the past was like and completely failing to recognize and confront the current reality.

Losing Earth: The Decade We Almost Stopped Climate Change – The New York Times

As Mr. Wolff points out, the New York Times continues its seemingly proud tradition, one it shares with plenty of other purveyors of truth, of stopping short of assigning blame where it is due and responsibly questioning the premises of this situation.
