Capitalist tech companies aren't really capitalist.

They are actually more like big Soviet or Chinese state owned enterprises. Twitter, Facebook, youtube, Microsoft, Google: all virtual monopolies. I thought there was this "vigorous free market competition" thing to capitalism. I guess not if you are a big Silicon Valley corp.

Plus their stocks get pumped up by the Fed every time the dow or Nasdaq looks like it's going to slip. When was the last time one of these companies faced any shareholder accountability?

They are already Communist.

it is scary how right you are .

my opinion , it would have been a healthier option to just let the market crash in 2008.

The economy that came out the other end would have been stronger , instead the Massive Government bail out brought us one step closer to socialism .

Could it be that the "means of production" in reality means "people"?


That is certainly the framework I'm working from.

If the economy is the people in market economics then the people are the economy in socialist economics as well. This means that humans, not tools and factories, are the means of production and that which is seized.

The outcome certainly makes sense when viewed this way.

They don't

MSM corporations don't

Wall Street and the banks don't

"Socialism" is a straw man used by TPB to distract us from what the elites are really up to.

I agree with this as well.
The problem is the financial sector and politicians are in bed together and there were zero lessons learned from 2008.

I think that what is happening with Big Tech/Data and politics is way more profound than we can imagine.
I am unsure if existing paradigms will be able to continue as normal any more.
If it becomes about enforcing which preferred narrative ruffles the least feathers,
I fear we are all in a great deal of trouble.
Seems the schedule for agenda 21/30 is on track.

In capitalism you have to work your way to the top and you can lose half to an ex wife, in communism you can buy your way to the top and have her disposed of.

It’s not about money, it’s about power.

Social media on the lower end is about pump and dump investments and global normalization, at the high end it’s about conformity of thought for the sake of control.

Because you think tech companies are capitalist, they are not - they have a product that in most cases breaks even or loses money while they invest in growth, their true value to investors who pump and dump until stagnation then burn it down and start over.

That growth necessitates standardization - the more markets, the more equal the less expression.

The investors at the upper level could never spend the money, their sign of status and power - but if they can buy into a system where their power and authority is guaranteed it's worth more than money.

In communist China, bezos ex wife doesn't get half, she disappears.

Above all of this is the nation states who want access and control, above them are the leaders who want total control through uniformity and limited access.
