Shattering the lie that capitalism was born as a benign and progressive system
Penny Hess, Chairwoman of the African People’s Solidarity Committee, destroys the lie that capitalism was born as a benign and progressive system in Europe and only later became the oppressive, world wide system of imperialism we know today.
This episode of the White Lies Shattered series uses African Internationalism to show that capitalism was born through brutal imperial plunder as a violent and parasitic entity that cannot be saved or reformed. As Chairman Omali Yeshitela has said, “There is no such thing as a kinder, gentler colonialism.”
