My background is libertarian but I now feel some form of communism could be in
our future, by default.
First, consider that deflationary factors could drive economies into permanent
stimulus with scant regard for debts. Even Bloomberg admits that the Bank of
Japan may own a big chunk of their stock market already. If they are forced
into buying up stocks and bonds without end in order to avoid collapse, then we
have a form of communism – if you consider things such as the Fed to be part of
Second, suppose automation does give us mass production of quality goods at
very low prices? If scarcity has always been the obstacle in socialist
systems, then this might overcome it. Leaders in China may believe this to be
true – and time will tell if they are correct.

I guess you are being ultra left here. The guy is showing will to learn and you

This is just (yawn) one more fake 'post-marxist' analysis (of which there has
been plenty: 'Post Modernism' being the exemplar of this genre). Dismissing the
importance of those CENTRAL materialist concepts -- the Means and Mode of
Production -- is a dead giveaway that this is just one more
quasi-/pseudo-'scientific' analysis. With a suspect political-economic -- no
doubt petit-bourgeois liberal -- agenda behind it, of course.
