1) workers control the means of production
2) democracy of the workplace
3) turn the fucking music off
4) destroy the profit motive
@jankoekepan you literally said “The only way of destroying the profit motive is destroying all possible means for people to better their own lot, or that of their families.” Maybe you can’t imagine a version of the world founded on generosity and truly efficient allocation of the world’s resources, but I can.
Plus, all profits are the stolen wages of workers like me. We create value through our labor and receive a starvation wage in return, while the capitalists steal the rest.
@jankoekepan I’m not afraid of discussing anything. You’re a rando (strike 1) from m.s (strike 2), your bio is 1 word (strike 3), and YOU came into MY mentions claiming to have knowledge of the true nature of humankind and how it coincidentally supports the status quo—which in case you’ve forgotten is killing the planet. You’re out.
Death. To. Capitalism.
Corollary: the only way of removing the profit motive entirely from society, independent of any hypothetical altruistic habits, is to render any such actions moot by confiscating products of work and precluding individualised support of children.
You stated among your desiderata, "destroy the profit motive". There's your target, there's your method.
@jankoekepan this was possibly the most verbose way of deliberately misunderstanding “profit motive” and “means of production.” I’m not talking about “self-improvement” and I’m definitely not talking about my fucking mastodon mentions.
Just like this post so I know you saw it and I’ll block you.
Not quite sure how I ended on this thread, but also checked out a few of your other toots.
You appear to have a view of economics / motivation based on (hyper?) individualism. Somewhat how I understand economics is often taught - describing the world in a way that aligns with neo liberal thought.
Think you could benefit from considering some alternative viewpoints.
You ever looked at Graebers research that backed his book Debt?
