y’ever had all the money needed to abolish scarcity for untold millions and instead thought “better shuffle my retinue into a bunker to wait this out”? ha ha, me neither 😑
the rich are just so headfucked. i don’t understand.
this whole god-forsaken country is about getting money
to the detriment of:
+ nurturing living things
+ creative expression
+ balanced living
(many other items could be listed)
@velartrill no, but what i meant was
if someone dropped $1mil on you, certain layers of need would melt away. food, rent, wage slavery. if i have half a trillion dollars, i can effectively eliminate those layers of need for millions of communities.
obviously you can't end scarcity by printing money or even just by redistributing it. to do that, you have to reorganize the means of production to some guiding factors beyond price.
