This subject is likely to dominate people’s lives for some time, due to the debts run up by the capitalists who own and run our society. For them, profits  rule.  Their greedy mismanagement is a repetitive theme in history but since they also seek to control the ideas in our heads, the resistance to their cuts is usually hidden from view and has to be re-discovered  by successive generations. This is un-hidden history and a main objective of radical history.
