Pinned toot

Capitalism gives companies the incentive to make things not last (or until warranty is over) and make repairing a pain. Socialism gives the incentive to not be wasteful and make products last long & repairable.

This left populism also portrays the rich as a group as evil/bad. This can lead to the fake anti-capitalism where you just oppose "bad capitalists". In reality, we need to understand the fundamental structure why the rich are evading taxes all the time, why they have so much wealth while others so little despite their labor and how capitalist control over our life is limiting our ability to truly approach eco-collapse, global conflicts, digital control, biogenetics, and so on.

Being white, cis and male I have many privileges many other people do not have. There are people who need the protection of anonymity, or who look for help on the internet. There are people who are threatened by racists, homophobes or sexists, who reinvent their identity or who struggle with psychological problems. If you force people to express themselves only under their real name, it excludes their perspective. Forcing people to use their real names is nonsense.

As a communist, I want every human to have all basic needs and a peaceful life. But I want to kindly ignore the majority of them personally.
