I've already explained here that further capitalist technological development -- including that of any 'OU' & 'Cold Fusion' discoveries -- is incompatible with the democratic and healthy further development of Human society (howevermuch capitalism, in the Past, freed Humanity from the clutches of feudal and pre-feudal obscurantism and squalor). However, all I really ever get in response on this e-list is the usual know-nothing, knee-jerk anti-communist bilgewater... So of course, the actual logic of capital accumulation remains essentially unexamined by most of you (as is the intention of some, here); and this innate, scientifically-examinable, historically-determined, social-economic development has remained a closed book to most of you your ENTIRE lives: because you have uncritically accepted a certain political-economic mental conditioning as being good, honest coin. Which it AIN'T.
Short answer: the capitalist development of technology essentially ENSLAVES the working-class: by its very logic, in its very essence. The socialist/communist development of the EXACT SAME technology OTOH, will do the EXACT OPPOSITE (once we are freed of World-wide capitalist sabotage): it will in fact FREE Humanity, forever, from the clutches of class exploitation. QED You want your 'Star Trek' Future..? Embrace Socialism -- or likely surely die in the latest, up-coming periodic capitalist conflagration, which will be called 'WWIII' (By somebody... Somewhere... Sometime... if not us.)
