Walter Mosley on the mysterious future beyond the frames of capitalism and socialism

“We have to recognize the failure of capitalism. We have to recognize the impossibility of socialism. We have to recognize what it is that we’re working for in the world, which is basically as good a life as we can get in this brief span that we have.
