Change We Can Believe In September 6, 2012Posted by Summerspeaker in Anarchism.
In this obligatory post against democracy, I’d like to single out Joe Biden for extreme hostility. Dronemaster-in-chief Obama’s right-hand man continues to crusade for forcible scarcity. Yes, it’s not enough for the state-corporate economy to overproduce and then fail to distribute. According to Biden, this practice must extend to the digital world as well. Laziness doesn’t cause poverty, folks; the armed thugs of law enforcement cause poverty at the behest of their rich bosses. We already live – or could live – in a post-scarcity society. Only coercion prevents that. I leave the magnitude of this crime for future historians to assess.
