Capitalism, dun dun dun

cds4's picture

I found it really interesting that the book discussed disibility as a side effect of capitalism. I’d be interested to see how communist doctrines approach the subject of disability. Marx classified homeless populations as lumen however there are high disability rates in homeless communities. Does communism provide a more accesible economic model for individuals with disabilities? If not, what economic models do? Does socialism address disability at all?
