Someone on Tumblr pulled a 'capitalism versus hunter-gatherers' binary, so I wrote a semi-long reply about how much better technology would be without capitalism.
Thought the solar punks might like it:
Okay, you piqued my curiosity.
What if we began applying the principles of hunting gathering for our own survival and luxury right here, right now?
Let's say, in the most egregious and superflous way, that I want a 40 " TV with HDMI port and all that. No, I should NOT start with that, and I know, but I'm a greedy consumer 😋
In a capitalist world, I need like $1,200.
What would I need to spend and do, to 3D print and assemble my own cheap 40” smart TV?
A mastodon instance for anarchists and libertarian socialists.
