Justice As Just Another Aspect Of The Commoditization Of Everything

And if it is commoditized you can bet your ass somebody's going to find a way to profit from it. And of course, unless they're watched closely, they'll work to profit for as much as they can get away with. Let's stop worrying about how you do such watching, without crippling the system in the process, and get rid of the need for profiting in the first place. If you don't need money, you certainly won't need to worry about profiting anywhere near as much.

Like I have said before. Changing the economic operating system isn't going to change human nature. What it will do, however, is stop providing for the hot house environment that serves too much to stimulate so many of our more base instincts. Money, and the advertising that must accompany the kind of mass consumption required to justify ever increasing productive capability, serves to do exactly that by providing the fuel, and the message, to keep pumping things up beyond both reason, and loving connection.

This is just but a part of what I am talking about when I say there is so much hanging in the balance between staying as we are, or recognizing that the current means of organizing ourselves into a society is no long tolerable. I urge to please, think long and hard on these many facets. Become better informed. As deeper questions. As a species. We really need to start thinking about a major pivot in the way human societies organize, and then interact with each other. We are very likely to perish if we do not.
