Rabat - My first encounter with critiques of capitalism was via the works of Alain Badiou and Slavoj Zizek, suggested to me by a friend whom I often pester with questions on social media. After reading some of the works of Badiou and Zizek, I widened my scope to thinkers including Jacques Ranciere, Michel Gauchet and Pierre Bourdieu. I then started reading Marx’s Kapital, and other works by the same author. All this exploration of the nature of capitalism and its potential alternative, confirmed or rather reinforced my conviction that the international capitalist system of nation-states and multinational corporations is a sick system.
