when billionaires argue that poverty is intractable and post-scarcity is impossible, they betray the violence intrinsic to their position. they already live lives beyond scarcity. they argue that only they deserve to do so.
@garbados @federicomena Did you read "Four Futures: Life After Capitalism"? One of them is basically this but more so. Where the megarich get to live their socialism, but everyone else is screwed.
@ebel @federicomena i read the jacobin article of that name, which has influenced a lot of my thinking for sure
@garbados @ebel yeah, just the article. I didn't realize there is a book!
Destroy the old gods.
