Granted, I don't think he means completely overthrowing capitalism.  I think he means it more like a regime change.

I think what's needed is more than just a regime change.

Quoting from Wikipedia:
Quote:Capitalism is an economic system based on the private ownership of the means of production and their operation for profit. Characteristics central to capitalism include private property, capital accumulation, wage labor, voluntary exchange, a price system, and competitive markets.
It's that "capital accumulation" part that I think is the issue - as long as capitalism is about things instead of about social structures, it's going to have that "most toys wins" flaw that drives people to make things that we don't need and the planet can't support.
