Capitalism is what enables fascism.

Guns are what enable murder?

Its that capitalism is a tool, depends how it is used. Capitalism in it's core it's blank, it's only if you fill it with unethical practices and uncompetitiveness, is when it's dangerous.

If you leave the sheep to be guarded by wolfs , then its bad.


If competitiveness is maximal, and power is balanced, then I dont see any harm with it.

You can have murder without guns. You can't have fascism without capitalism.

Bitcoin combines money, the wrongest thing in the world, with software, the easiest thing in the world to get wrong.

By logic:  I own my body, I own my life, I own my work , I own my time, therefore whatever capital I accumulate with those things, is rightfully mine.

That's typical standard libertarian reasoning, which unfortunately fails to that in order for you to work, you need energy which ultimately comes from the sun and the earth which was here long before humans roamed it and started calling it "theirs". Also, according to that statement, a libertarian would be perfectly fine with a father raping his daughter, because he is merely "enjoying his property"

This observation is essentially the same that I came up to myself, though from an entirely different starting point. I was asking myself about what can actually be called mine in a true, absolute sense of the word. If something can be taken from me (by force or whatever), can it truly be called my property? A human body is made up of atoms (and whatever makes up them), but do they really belong to the mind (or soul) that dwells in this body?

And what is left then when we thus strip an individual of his claimed "possessions"?

Yes, because a property for to be property it doesnt mean it has to be glued to you or bound to you eternally.

It just means you have a claim on that item, and that claim makes you the exclusive owner of it.


If another person has a claim on it then you can resolve that dispute by some means, if they just take it, that is just theft and its wrong.

This assertion is self-contradictory, since, if followed to its logical conclusion, it just says that what you consider as your property is, in fact, what others consider as such. Which essentially destroys the whole concept of something belonging to you (as an owner of something), in its own right...

So we are back to, it is truly yours only as long and as much as someone else can't take it from you

Everything can be taken, but it doesnt mean it should be.

Otherwise people would just go off and destroy everything in their path, which would be a crazy world.

In order to keep order, we need to assign items to people for safeguarding, so the concept of private property is needed, even if philosophically it's not valid.

In a public library, items are kept for safekeeping, without them having a specific owner. Public roads are used by all, without ownership.

"private property" is an artefact from immemorial antiquity, born out of scarcity and necessity, and furthered by greed and inequity, which automation and the scientific method - the new enlightenment - stand to render meaningless.

Well then I hope you are right, but I just hope this theory wont turn into a global communist dictatorship who will send people into gulags.

Both models have problems. The current capitalist model is dead in the long run as automation deprecates more and more jobs. On the other hand, the RBU model is really naive in thinking people will be happy to not have an advantage over others (being in a privileged position if you have a lot of money, this would disappear in a RBU). We'll see how things develop, the future is extremely blurry.

Technically all jobs in the service sector can disappeared in one day because of computers and automation. So the capitalism is allmost dead. They keep it alive with mechanical support...

True. It does sound like something which couldn't happen, but we all have to remember, under the industrialization, nobody could believe machines could take over jobs managed by men.

No need to keep it alive. 50 years ago we had industrial capitalism (since 1800s), now we have financial capitalism, where you pretty much don't work but mostly invest (or just speculate, lol)...

You may question its benefits or its overall virtues in general but not its existence

You have no clue what you are talking about.

You mean the production sector not the service sector, because only production will be automated, services cant.

This really sums up your ideology, you dont even know what you are talking about.

You mean like this robotic bartender?
How about self-driving cars? Or robotic lawn mowers?
Maybe even "Watson"?

But you cannot apply that to everything, most service sector jobs, while they can theoretically be replaced by bots, they are demanded not too.

There is a human aspect in many jobs that just can be taken away.

[So, in a capitalistic society, everyone will end up in the service sector, even though those jobs could be automated - what a waste of human potential!]

Why if people like that, example is a doctor.

YOu could theoretically replace surgeons with AI robot arms, and family doctors with medical vending machines but would that be the same?

What if that doctor likes his job, and like to help save lives, would you take that away from him?


I thought your ideology was to maximize happiness, not to replace the system with an automated robot-planet.

RealBitcoin, why would a society allow a doctor to continue practicing, when there's a robot that does it 10 times faster, 10 times more efficiently, and 10 times safer; indeed, it would be malpractice. The goal is to automate as much as possible, to free up human potential.
