american society; life in the ant hill. make no mistake, we are still slaves. gotta eat to live, gotta work to eat. slavery by necessity. or dumpster diving. but ideally, one shouldnt have to dive to eat. call it anarcho-capitalism if you want, but the ideal society would work like this: imagine a pond. no water flows through this pond, it just sits there and stagnates....becomes undrinkable. pure anarchism. those who want a product, but have nothing to trade for it would be forced to make it themselves. and with no one to teach them, they'd be fucked. those who want video games or movies or skateboards would all be SOL unless they had and could operate the machinery to manufacture said products. vast numbers of people suffer boredom....the pond stagnates. but you flow fresh water through the pond, and it prospers. how do we do this you ask? first off, we have to realize that we live in a society where consumer culture's grip runs deep into the very fabric of our lves. superficial fashion oriented nonsense where it doesnt matter what you know, just who you know. while the middle class and poor toil our lives away, the rich get richer from our neccessary slavery. you think it takes ninety dollars to make a pair of shoes? no. morel ike 10. and when you take into account that nike pay indonesian workers 75 cents an hour, where does all that money go? straight into the pockets of company owners and share holders. the workers see only a fraction of a fraction of that profit. meanwhile millions are thrown out of work by large corporations whose owners decide they arent rich enough and close down a factory to open one in mexico. the time has come for this to end. the time has come for the workers to take back their own profits. EVERYONE deserves to live well. thats why pure anarchism wouldnt work. stagnation. take capitalism, and mix it with ararchism, and you got it. we'll still have to work, but we'll scrap the gold reserve nonsense and set the working wage at 30$ an hour, for everyone. everyone from burger flipper to CEO. that way, everyone could live well. but where would all this money come from? the same place it coems from now.we'll just print enough to do it. the gold reserve idea is ridiculous anyway. i wouldnt have a problem washing dishes five hours five nights a week if i was paid that much. and if you dont want to work, dont. be a vagrant, its your life, do what you will with it. but first we have to tackle the problem of the current regime.... but how? the peace movement oviously failed to change anything.... let's face it...someone's gotta say it. we need a revolution. we need a second civil war. only after the system's burnt down can we begin to rebuild.
