Abstract
This thesis examines the nature of the capitalist mode of production and begins with the contention that it necessarily produces unjust outcomes do to its economic mandates and corresponding organization of social relationships.

This thesis examines the nature of the capitalist mode of production and begins with the contention that it necessarily produces unjust outcomes do to its economic mandates and corresponding organization of social relationships. More specifically, this thesis will investigate the processes through which the capitalistic mode of production reproduces itself. An understanding of these processes allows us to situate our own lives within the system and to better understand how capitalism effects us all. Specific focus will be given to the role that space plays in the reproduction of capitalism. Understanding how space is appropriated to reproduce the capitalist system allows us the possibility to appropriate space on our own terms, to achieve our own ends and live our own lives. Finally, this thesis will propose a structure in which we can begin to move beyond, or break through, the system. A main contention is that we need not wait for a complete societal transformation, but that we can begin to create our own systems to meet our needs, and in so doing free ourselves from a system that feeds off us.
