capitalism, anti-work 

minorly annoyed at the entirety of capitalism pushing propaganda equating doing work with value. this MIGHT be true if the work was actually valuable and there was enough work for everyone

capitalism, anti-work 

capitalism isn't designed to get actual work done or give people places to live, it's designed to make profit. i wish we'd stop pretending otherwise

capitalism, anti-work 

i know it's hard to square this with the constant talk by powerful people or talking heads that capitalism is a system that makes the world good or something, and we're in control of it through feedback mechanisms

capitalism, anti-work 

but to be real, we're not in control of this. capitalism is the mother of all super spreaders. it hasn't killed us physically, just our soul. our purpose has become dedicated to continue capitalism

re: capitalism, anti-work 

@jookia also mind that it's almost never capitalism, but a degenerated version of it. Theoretically (and only theoretically) it could generate infinite work but technically it appears to monopolize resources and rights.
