Spouting shit on a Sunday.
I over heard a conversation on the bus the other day were someone was telling their friend about one of their children. “They've done really well for themselves.” as oppose to what.... doing really bad?! When it comes to life under total capitalism life is reduced to a competition, where doing well is seen by people as having a good job, earning good money, owning your own home and generally being a good capitalist by consuming it all, and then standing in judgement of those who've done bad.
Human nature isn't just greed and selfishness. Humans have been nurtured that way. Co-operation has been sacrificed on the alter of capitalist competition, in the church of consumption. We need to be going backwards to go forwards. Mutual exchange working together for the common good, before things turn really bad!
