Of course not. I'm saying capitalism is responsible for the current dystopia. I thought I didn't have to spell out that feudalism, slavery, and other primitive systems were also bad, but apparently I did.

That's exactly the thing I find so wanting in traditional leftism. There's no wholistic critique that includes the Europe's domination by the Church and aristocracy in the Middle Ages, or slavery in Babylon and ancient Egypt. That's why anti-civ analysis is so compelling.
