it’s fucked up to see governments say “how will we pay for it” because it just means they’re owned by capital. capital gets to say what they can and can’t do. you can’t solve poverty, an entirely artificial condition, because it’s too expensive. you can’t build homes for the homeless, it’s too expensive. you can’t own networking infrastructure, only comcast and verizon can do that because — you guessed it — it’s too expensive. “it’s too expensive” means you have to let The Market decide who lives and who dies.
we could just not organize on price. only propaganda claims it has always been like this.
@garbados i wonder how many countries still have the infrastructure to build a road, an electrical grid and buildings without buying anything
