Depends how you view primitive communism, which is what Ralph seems to be projecting when he writes that the current crisis of the system is “prefiguring fundamental change” - but only after capitalism has further run roughshod over the working class, and produced even greater misery and inequality, alienation and the destruction of the natural environment.

Socialism or barbarism, or socialism AND barbarism?
