They form their own research groups, paid by the government with taxes. Then their research is published for all people's benefit.
And that system works: that's how transistors were invented (thanks to US Department of Defense). And that's how microchips were invented to (NASA paid the research to create the first integrated circuit to get to the moon).
No, the powerful few get to decide through the enablement of people's stolen money called taxes. Then the research is published according to the whims of the higher establishment. Also, who is to say those innovations couldn't be created otherwise?
Our body is communist. All the blood and oxygen is distributed to all cells, for example. Also, no cell is unemployed. Welcome to nature, human.
My cells work with each other and give to each other because they choose to. No gun, no force is used against them.
Wealth, if it's distributed in a good enough way, can feed every human in the planet. But with the actual system, there are as many obese as people suffering from severe famine. If we compare our economic system with our body's cells, they are much more efficient, and much more socialists than us.
No, if people choose to take care of themselves they can live with the resources available to them. If these resources are denied due to the whims of the powerful, they die or live enslaved lives. If people wish to work together, they can. Welcome to history.
Poor wages are a side effect of having a too high Gini Index, meaning wealth is not distributed in a fair enough way.
It's a subjective measure that means absolutely nothing and it should have no say in my life and how I should live. You can take your Keynesian pseudo-economics and blow it out your ass. Anyways, wealth would be up for grabs by everybody if it weren't left to the hands of the powerful.
Gini Index in America has gone up and up since Reagan's neoliberalism took place. Before Reagan, taxes for the very rich were up to 90%, for example. That was a GOOD thing.
Cool story, friend. I remember when there wasn't a personal income tax in this country that wasn't left to be used by the central banks and light Bernanke's cigars.
