Labour is fine. Just not 40, 50 or 60 hours a week. 10-15, maybe 20 hours should be way enough to live a worryfree life. Change my mind.

As long as we're shooting for the moon what say you and me and the mates at work all decide together how much, and how often, and even what we produce?

You mean we'd be in control of the means of production? That's an interesting idea. We should come up with a recognizable symbol for this new concept. Something simple, like two silhouettes of tools, maybe crossed.

Communism! Don't even consider it. Don't think about it. Those are bad thoughts, suppress them. Get angry at them. Lash out about it! Communism! It's evil! It's more evil than the term evil can describe!

Ok, ok. I'm done. I got to be honest, though. I don't know very much about communism. I'm not asking to learn this very second, I just wanted to throw that out there.

i don't know much about it either, friend, I've just read a certain manifesto, made a brief foray into das kapital, and read a long question about "what is to be done".

All jokes aside I started reading some theory out of spite (no lie, its sadly why i do most things lol). It just seemed so clearly and thoroughly detested by established economic thinkers, politicians, and pundits that I just had to know what the big effin deal was.

You did what?!?!? Did the government bust down your door and murder you?????? Are you a terrorist now????? Have you learned other degenerate habits????? Are you somehow now gay or more gay than you were before????

Absolutey. Terrified.

They have the forbidden knowledge, y'all. You can not trust this person.

Ask Jack London what he thinks about scabs.

Might I suggest the warm embrace of the 80 different social democratic and economic theories stuffed in a single trenchcoat made of forms signed in triplicate as an alternative? No fancy symbol perhaps but we serve cookies at the meetings.
