Abstract

We live in a time when world change on a heroic scale is taking place. Half a millennium of world history is drawing to an inexorable climax. The capitalist era is coming to an end. Born by the light of the Renaissance to the accompaniment of a Bach fugue, its portrait painted by Rembrandt, its birth announced by Shakespeare and Cervantes—today capitalism is dying. And now its accompaniment is in the click of a hundred million television sets and the prophetic doom songs of the Beatles.
