Can you even begin to imagine the amount of working hours that would just disappear with the abolition of the profit motive?
The amount of jobs which exist for no reason other than to move money around and magically create more for rich people is seriously dizzying. The amount of unproductive labor, the soulless inefficiency, the sheer number of bean counters... I need to go for a walk, sry
the revolution will involve a lot less guns and a whole lot more masses of angry people occupying government buildings, and means of production than you think. if it's a gunfight you're imagining, or a protracted war, even, then we're simply outgunned. nukes exist. flying killer robots exist. tiny remote controlled bombs exist, and we have none of them. violence will be in our arsenal but a literal war just... isn't an option. it's a tankie fantasy and it won't build a better future.
