Let me know how it goes big man. I'm rooting for you.
but a facsimile of it is being kept going by its constituant parts untill it is no longer maintainable, wherupon having exhausted a lot of remaining resource keeping the facsimile intact, the collapse for people will be far worse.
So perhaps instead the OP should say.....this hideous pretence should be carefully disassembled and societies re-organised to allow for minimum fall out to the most humans
...for starting to use 'humans' in your posts rather than 'people'? Did you read it somewhere and like the look of it?
I do use 'people' as a word too.
I think things and then I write them down.
I do not normally look at what I've written and then correct it, as you guys have probably all realised.
but only a limited number of human beings
and it gets lost amidst semantic bullshit
...I would like to know if creaky has any views on squatting as opposed to the traditional rent/buy options.
have arisen because of the unevenness and sillyness of influencing bodies that oversaw ridiculous bubbles and such, then often squatting makes sense.
If people think that it makes sense to have vast numbers of unoccupied spaces and humans in some sort of distress because of the unavailability of places to stay within budget, then they seem a little mad to me, their priorities seem to be in the wrong place. I dont see many people suggesting that homelessness is a desirable consequence of inequalityin society (many people suggest that it is the inequality, the differential, that powers the desire that stimulates 'growth'......although I thinhk that this sort of desire promotes growth i nthe wrong area and moves society down a less desirable and mofre selfish path)
I do not believe that it is morally acceptable to have vast swathes of empty property and then have people freezing on the streets......If you think I am wrong in this then just say so.
Hostels and the like are not nice places (or at least they didnt use to be, and they cost a lot of money and resource to keep paying to keep people......letting people get on and make use of places that are not otherwise wanted makes perfect sense to me.......although I suppose that this might 'damage the housing market'....which I do freely admit would put the economy into freefall. ....so for now I will just personally recommend looking at squatting
You're really selling it to me.
the option I'd prefer is if anything a financial fracturing into local self-governing communities, accompanied by global infrastructures of transport, communication and education maintained by an active network of freelance polyglots
It's only the miracle of consumer capitalism that means you're not lying in your own shit, dying at 43 with rotten teeth and a little pill with a chicken on it is not going to change that. Now come on, fuck off.
obviously he is referring to what capitalism has evolved into.
Markets and farming and advances in medicine HAVE NOT always involved 'capitalism' as we mean the word nowadays.
Markets and barter could involve mutually beneficial transactions, but rather than being even modern capitalism has moved towards markets heavily weighted in favour of the powerful, thus creating centres of greater power and resource to the detriment of others
peep show, is one of my favourates too
Whenever anyone metions capitalism, i can only think about that quote.
- novelty single
- terrorism (??)
his other option is to live a non-capitalist lifestyle, which is hard, but if he can make it to Christiania he might be ok. Either that or he can work the land, resurrect the lost art of crofting. Or he can put his money into a local credit union and attempt to rouse his local community into some form of shared-profit enterprise
then daddy here, will be the smartest man on the cinder.
