And yet theory-of-everything treatises like Piketty’s ultimately seek provocation, not practicality, and Piketty concludes that such proposals are not enough to achieve true liberation. “It seems obvious that the only way to transcend capitalism and ownership society is to work out some way of transcending the nation-state,” he writes. We’ll need “a true participatory and internationalist socialism,” he says, in order to free humanity from the contradictions of capitalism in which it is so harmfully enmeshed.
