There is no good reason to rule out the eventual abolition of capitalism... but there is good reason to rule out the abolition of *some* form of (political) economy. Maybe gender can be abolished... but sexuation can't be.

Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe human beings might lose all sense of political economy and sex/gender... but this potential abolition seems to be more a vision of total domination than freedom...
