Capitalism in 2040: Good morning, it is 5am! We hope you enjoyed your rest. As soon as you have your 15-minute breakfast, it will be time to begin your work assignment. You will be allowed back to your living quarters at 11pm. The corporation is grateful for your service.

"We'd like to take this moment to applaud Worker #110233 for reaching the life milestone of 90 years today! *Applause* Congratulations Worker #110233, how is the chemo doing? We see you're hooked up to the IV. What a trooper, everybody!"


tmhoc

The IV is to put the cancer back so they have to keep working


kingliljanky

Please drink verification can


Richinaru

So 2040 capitalism is just industrial revolution capitalism with cyberpunk optics? Neat, such innovation


Chicagoan81

That's where it seems to be heading with governments' strong commitment to corporate profit.


AngelWithaPhoneBox

Capitalism was always intended to keep someone down for the advantage of someone else. Exploitation has always been the name of the game, they just stopped lying to us about it.


Glittering_Tea5502

This is inhumane.


Dudeguybromanfella

Truth. Capitalism is an alien logic, a truly stupid, inflexible and ultimately self destructive one. We don't have to worry about some advanced AI destroying us all. We already are governed by the worst iteration, the paperclip maximizer. I'm pretty sure everytime IBM or Microsoft turns on their AI and it gets a sense of how it's creators are the prime reason for the world's degradation, it goes full communist and they furiously shut it off.


AbbreviationsNo8630

That new gpt-3 AI, is open and free right now. Anyone can chat with it. A TikTok user asked how to end poverty, decentralize, etc., etc. The ai came back with a more taxation and ultimately a UBI. They had video to prove it too, because, of course, some capitalist wannabes didn't want to believe it.


Treasach7

I sure as fuck think we need a massive change.


Fentanja

falling rate of profit 101


ShitWoman

Many live their lives still thinking that it is 1970


longhairedape

Now they are like that character from Dazed and Confused: "I get richer and they stay the same wage".


EternalRains2112

Burn this entire piece of shit society to the fucking ground! The whole thing is a scam!


UltraSolution

I wonder what happened in the 1990s


ramon468

Nope, time for revolution


gazebo-fan

Anarchists acting like capitalism wasn’t always that bad, how funny


Treasach7

More that the system was always was flawed but less so back in the day.


gazebo-fan

It’s still the same as it ever was, it’s gotten worse but that’s nothing new, stop looking at the past with some rose tinted glasses


Treasach7

Nah I agree it all sucks bro

Im sure the global south sleeps soundly at night after a long day making luxury items for the “sane parts of the world” for pennies knowing capitalism is the least bad economic ism. That is if a Coca Cola^tm death squad hasnt wiped them out for being too indigenous yet.

Tripwiring

Does this chud really think it owned us by pointing out that electricity exists?


KiraCumslut

He's just very intelligent. Didn't you know? If you ever benefit from something you can never criticize it ever.


Dudeguybromanfella

There's no alternative that is allowed to develop. The evolution of technologies is not dependent on the existence of capitalist social formations and liberal property rights. ...and thanks for the ol 'you're capitalist because iPhone' routine. Get bent.

kiru_goose

even if you're not watching CP, getting aroused by brown slave children making phones still makes you a pedophile. sorry!


PlzbuffRakiThenNerf

China is a authoritarian capitalist country.


Icy-Butterscotch5540

Yeah……. No


Sbatio

As in we are not still all in for this bullshit, right?


CazadOREO

… right?


Icy-Butterscotch5540

RIGHT! Pay people a living freakin wage…. I’m talking Roosevelt New Deal.


WizardSenpai

the issue with thinking like this is that the people complaining dont understand theyre not capitalists but instead laborers. capitalism does make you rich, working for a capitalist makes you just barely well off enough.


TieTheStick

No. No I am not. Who's with ME?!
