Where: Community Church of Boston • 565 Boylston Street, 2nd floor • Boston

Dr. Matt Dumont will speak about the effects of apocalyptic capitalism on us Americans, who are living in its belly. The Empire of Capitalism is self-destructing, but its hegemony is so vast that its implosion will be devastating and irreparable. Those of us who hoped to build a sensible socialist society are likely to be its first victims, as Capital turns against those who refused to be its cheerleaders for the system but were thoughtful critics instead.
