Society is now characterized by a movement towards limits of what is feasible, the overloading of increasingly complex systems, and the lack of alternatives and safety fall-backs. Concurrently, there are deep structural changes occurring in the world economy, an enforced global reorganization of capitalist production by means of rationalization and relocation, and a crisis which impinges on the basic institutional and political structure of post-war capitalism.
