"It's not necessarily against a system that it collapses, because most systems do collapse in the end. That's a part of the wheel of life – systems do collapse.
So I'm to some extent slightly inclined to forgive capitalism for being about to collapse. I
mean, there are lots of fine things, lots of love affairs and the like which have come to a sticky end.
On the other hand, it is quite an accusation – quite hard for it to live down – that not only is it based on the ludicrous idea that growth can continue indefinitely, but it's going to destroy the entire planet with it."
