A favorable New York Times review of a favorable book about the Communist Manifesto declares that the book "belongs to the long, leftist debate over revolutionary action, a debate that has become all the more urgent as capitalism threatens to roast and flood our world, if it doesn't incinerate it in a radioactive cloud first."
The claim that "capitalism" is threatening "to roast and flood our world" is odd, given that by far the largest emitter of emissions is Communist China. As for the "radioactive cloud," the likeliest perpetrators would be Communist North Korea or Russia headed by Vladimir Putin, who spent a reported 17 years in the Communist KGB. There was already a radioactive cloud from Chernobyl, a nuclear disaster in 1986 in the Communist Soviet Union. Portraying capitalism in this way, as a threat to humanity, is inaccurate. If the Times management or ownership really believed this nonsense, the consistent thing to do would be to shut the paper down and leave reporting the news exclusively to state-owned-and-controlled propaganda organs, the way it was in the Soviet Union.
