Why the end of the market economy is inevitable.

in economics •  6 months ago

I'd like to assert it will be because the crapitalust dupes finally read a book, but even a utopic dreamer like myself knows those odds are somewhere between a fat chance and zero.
Morons dont read,...

But, that doesnt invalidate my assertion.
The market economy is gonna end.
Only a couple things need to happen before we can all be replaced by robots and central dining areas.

We know the elites have their plans.
They spell them out for all to see in 8 modern languages and 4 ancient scripts.

If there are 8b of us then only 1 in 16 of us survive.
No need for markets then, we will all be slaves eating in mess halls.

Or, on any given tuesday we can exercise our collective power and simply continue to do the work while refusing to pay for anything.

Who does all the work now?
Workers do.
Who enjoys the lion's share of the fruits of that labor.
Crapitalusts.
Who lives in opulence?
Not those that work.

Why the hell the people doing all the work would agree to this idiocy is a function of the information war.
You agree to go along because your indoctrination tells you compliance is good.
You have been taught to believe that this is how things have to be.
This is how things naturally evolved.

However, if you are aware of the information war you know that you have been indoctrinated to love your servitude.
You know skool was designed to get you to sit still, shut up, do your work, and get your reward.
You saw what happened to the kids that already knew the score.
They didnt make it to graduation.
But, you did.
You bought into the go along to get along.
You worked diligently at silencing that voice in your head that said 'freedom is better than this'.
You got your haircut regularly, you got your diploma, and your real job.
But that voice never went away.
You couldnt find your happiness on the vacuous social media sites.
The job you found doesnt fulfil your desires beyond the bare necessities of life.
You came here because that little voice told you this site was better than those others.
Here you dont have to bite your tongue.
You feel more at home among those of us learning to take our freedom.
You are beginning to realize that if you dont take your freedoms where you can get them then you wont have them.
Soon you will stop being their best cop.
You will start to not come to a complete stop at a stop sign.
You will tell yourself that 'its a sign, not a cop'.
Soon you will notice that you go a little longer between haircuts.
You will start to spend more time in bars.
You'll start dreaming of learning to play guitar and going on the road to be a rock star.
Along the way you will slowly drink yourself to death.
Because those dreams of freedom arent coming true.
Those tattoos you got after getting your first paid gig are preventing you from returning to your cubicle.
You will finally understand why that longhair kid called you a fool in skool.
Then it will be too late.
Your life will have passed.
You will slowly realize that you were born to lose.
That that little voice, that everybody has, was a siren call to the susceptible foolish enough not to resist.
You will never know the world possible had you embraced that call to freedom and educated yourself with knowledge from outside the matrix when you had a lifetime ahead of you to see it to fruition.
You wasted your entire life because you wanted to be free but wouldnt read a book if your life depended on it.
You embraced the flashylight box's viewpoint and look what it got you.
A slow painful death in obscurity.

Read an f'n book, moron, your life depends on it!

Most companies have profit margins under 10%. Let me know if you ever learn of a business that makes huge profit margins off it's workers that can be started up for under $1 million.

It would be profitable for thugs to end capitalism and then possibly enslave or just kill you and rob you if profit is their main motive.

So, your solution is more of what got us here?

·
·

Rob the bots and move towards manual curation and quality leadership.

And in real life?

I think we need to be much less wasteful. We are destroying $10,000 houses that would cost $50,000 to build in the USA and instead building million dollar houses. We also waste money on new cars and throw out like half our food.

We could also boost productivity and although I am not onboard with the brok hippie stuff if we are going to have trees in our yard they may as well be fruit trees.

The market is what causes this wastefulness.

Without market economics we would have a lot less so I guess there would be less waste.

How so? If your goal is to profit, why would you ever want to be wasteful? Wastefulness is just lost profits.

To decrease supply to increase price/exchange value.

1/3 of food goes to waste.

5 houses to every homeless person.

The most striking example of market restrictions of supply is the diamond industry.

Those shiny rocks sure are abundant, but for some reason expensive.

Scaricty is enforced because it keeps class society intact.

thats my hero talkin right there! uou crack em up thooooo !! sooo true and gotta love that last line “read a fckn book moron” buahahahahah
guess what even many who read books still keep their head in the sand.

excellent writeup and Preach, preach!! (thats a phrase btw not literal)

ps. im
glad i read :p

·

You are too kind, thank you!

What gets me is that they cant know what they dont know, nor that they dont know it, but they want credit for knowing it all! 0.o
Smdh.

Smart people realize they dont know everything, stupid people think they are smart,...

·
·

we are wise enough to know we do not know everything but smart enough to know were are not dumb!! :)

·
·
·

Sadly we all have blindspots, and we are blind to them.
At least until their consequences cause us to get slapped by them!

·
·
·
·

@freebornangel maybe, not all of us i believe are blind but choose to be blind.
slap slap ... do you need some slaps? hehe

There has been a few days that it would have been better than letting life do it.

@freebornangel but of course dear friend.

i keep reminding myself, there is only one of us. all these ideas are just that, and I believe what I give my attention to grows.

so I dream of prosperity, wealth, health, and peace/love/joy.

i must say, so far it seems to be working. I'm in a better position now than I was a year ago, and each year has been better and better.

i've refined my skillset to include construction, computers, and car repair. but i'm not worried. i can figure anything out and find a way to be useful.

so i don't worry about what they do, but they wonder how i do it. ; ) i tell them but rarely do they believe. ah well.

The economy will reward you for your hard work :)

I'm kind of at odds with Kropotkin myself. His vision of an anarchist revolution really depends upon spontaneous order. He admits it through out the whole book.

It's a nice and quaint vision of how a communist society could come about.

My issue with it is that it isn't really realistic. It has a very romantic view that humanity will one day just be communist.

I disagree whole heartily, communism needs to be built, with plans and such.

I did really like the chapter about art, and the first chapter, but he's too romantic, too simple, economics are way more complex then they way Kropotkin envisions them.

but yes, read the book.

I dont buy into the people are bad, without bullies, bullies would take over theory.
The bullies are in charge now.

Why dont you go next door, kill your neighbor, and burn his house?
Because you think that lacks class.
The same reason nobody mugged you today.
Nobody thought it was a good idea.

Yes, idealistic, but possible.
On any given tuesday.
If we can gain the narrative.
Do you honestly think that we cant make it happen given control of the media and the minds of the masses?
That is how the bullies stay in power, and nobody likes them.
My proposal comes with free stuff.

·
·

I agree to a point. Humans are products of the material environment, the key is to change said environment.

The media is so bourgeois that communists are never going to get control over it.

Like, we have to plan for it, is all i'm saying. Just waiting for some sort of revolution to happen is just a waste of time. We've gotta build the society we want right?

"Why dont you go next door, kill your neighbor, and burn his house?"

Because I don't need to. I'm not that poverty stricken. Scarcity(artificially created by the market or otherwise) is what causes most crime. I'm not going to rob my neighbor because I have a means of survival, I can sustain myself through the market by selling my time as a commodity.

Not everyone is so lucky.

·
·
·

Yes, not that lucky.
Ergo, free stuff ends most crime.

Building the new makes the old obsolete.

You agree to go along because your indoctrination tells you compliance is good.

I don't understand this, is this your experience in your work? What do you do? Who is holding you to comply? I know absolutely no one who works because of compliance. Everyone, that I know, work for access and excess, some even restrict themselves to buying from independents or very small business where you can meet and befriend the entire staff. And absolutely everyone can quit, start creating mass amount of their unique art and sell it on Etsy or whatever. Is that compliance as well?

·

Who is holding you to comply?

I have no choice but to submit to exploitation by a boss, or exploit customers directly by being a boss, maybe employees, too.
Being forced to join in the exploitation or starve is not a freely made choice.

·
·

Sure, I get that but you can join a commune, there's plenty of them in every country.

·
·
·

Where i can be exploited communally?

Id prefer to keep working, but stop paying.

·
·
·
·

What do you mean where? I suggested a commune to not get exploited and work yet pay for nothing.

·
·
·
·
·

Pardon me if i am skeptical that a communist society can exist surrounded by a crapitalust one.
You got a link to one?

·
·
·
·
·
·

I've lived in several, the least capitalistic were the hippiest, somewhat naturally.

And I've seen videos on a few 100% self sufficient ones, I think there's one by Vice. Either way, I don't know where you're from so it's quite difficult to find you a relevant link. I do know that virtually every developed country has a rainbow gathering and that some people live from one gathering to the next, so that's one example, hippie af but valid.

BTW, can a communist country exist surrounded by capitalistic countries?

·
·
·
·
·
·

Im in mexico, no rainbow gatherings here for a while.
Im from oklahoma, they dont have them, either.

The problem of coexisting is that crapitalism isnt real tolerant of resistence.
They tend to attack anything that shows life can exist without them.

How do these communes get toilet paper, electricity, and internet?
Id guess they sell things.
