how capitalism works
@yogthos Marxism: when you absolutely need to view every problem through the lens of a spoiled 5yo that gets a gift when it's someone else's birthday so he doesn't cry.
@jasonoliveira LOL WAT?!
@yogthos "Mommy, Why did we have to buy a present for his birthday? I want a present too! Give me HIS present!"
@jasonoliveira yeah that's not what Marxism is about
@yogthos But you believe the same overgeneralization of capitalism is accurate? Do you see the point yet?
@jasonoliveira I think there is a fundamental difference between capitalism and socialism.
Capitalism is an inherently Darwinian system rooted in competition. It encourages exploitation by its very nature.
On the other hand, socialism is a system rooted in cooperative pooling of resources for common benefit.
I find the concept of capitalism fundamentally abhorrent. The whole reason we live in a society because we accept that cooperation is more effective than competition.
@yogthos so, you wrote that many words just to say "no, I don't see the point yet."
I should've just replied with a meme in the first place.
@jasonoliveira seems like you're confusing socialism with authoritarianism
@yogthos yet another reply where you haven't seen the point yet. Have another meme while you think about it:.
@jasonoliveira yes I get it, you're being very clever there
@yogthos They have "runs a company" in their profile. Just block and move on
More evidence showing liberals just don't understand.
That's why we invented self-management 👍 😃
(Poster from 1968. Rough translation : "The boss needs you. you don't need him.)
@yogthos i think about this almost daily. Like I literally worked at a studio where a game was made that had pulled in MILLIONS of dollars, and this is an under 20-people studio. And yet we were all paid low and maybe given some meager bonuses and couldn't get any funding for new projects.
@SuperCee I think that exploitation is an inherent property of capitalism
@thatbrickster if being self employed was that easy everybody would be doing it. The whole point of socialism is precisely to make it easy for people to be self employed via cooperatives.
@yogthos and then let's think what happens when we apply that model to EVERYTHING
@yogthos The State! O.o
