In the USA, a typical person has $60000 of debt by the end of their life. Your overall net wealth is very likely to be a negative number, after living to get into debt and perpetually paying it back. Over an entire human lifetime, most people in the richest country the world has ever known, will effectively own nothing and earn less than nothing.
And yet, the idea persists that communism is bad because it means that “you can’t own anything.”
You don’t own anything now.
California admits it doesn't have firefighters this summer because the near-free, slave labor of state prisoners they have used in the past is locked down with #COVID19

I'm not really impressed with our opening plans.
Reminder that debt is sold for pennies on the dollar. John Oliver bought $15 million worth of debt for $60,000, then cancelled it.
Any single billionaire could cancel a huge hunk of student loan debt for pocket change.
They choose not to.
Survey about Hulu for class, Please boost (1/2)
Hey, can people help me with a survey I need to conduct for class? I need people who use Hulu on a TV to answer ten statements for me on a scale of 1 to 5 where 1 is least agree and 5 is most agree. Please post your answers as a reply. Thank you so much! 😊
i cannot find the old post where i said this so i'm gonna write it again:
everyone intuitively already knows that the economy is already planned. it's centrally planned in boardrooms of massive corporations to get the largest value for their shareholders. this is why you can google and find nerds excitedly speculating about marvel movies that will come out in 2025. it's only when we're asked to think about it that we revert to the grade-school propaganda idea of the market, supply and demand, and capitalism as something that just "happens," without conscious outside prodding.
the difference between capitalism and socialism isn't central planning, it's that under socialism the planning serves the needs of the whole population, rather than increasing the profits of a tiny few.
asking for financial help, please give to black trans women first
Good morning, everything is still shit. If you want to make it marginally less shit for two disabled trans people, please consider giving us money because the pittance we get from the government is barely enough to survive on.
You can't mourn the decline of interest in theater or live orchestral music or opera while also jacking the price of said things up
You want to bring them back into the cultural zeitgeist? Make them cheaper than the cinema, remove the unspoken dress codes, advertise them on TV and billboards and streetlights.
If it's a Saturday night and I've got nothing to do, I should be able to say to my friends "Hey let's go see a play and stop for drinks after!" and within 30 minutes we should be on the road in whatever we were wearing.
