Your opinions are arrogant and arbitrary. For a site such as this, that’s unfortunate.
Since the long term effects of technology are often impossible to predict, all sorts of things can emerge that damage the Elite’s rule. Phone companies deeply regretted not pacing solid bandwidth charges on early internet use. Many of the world leaders are affected by dementia, alcoholism and drug use – or simple self-serving laziness. Example: a drunken Juncker and revelations about dementia medications used in Washington DC within Congress ( past month).

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 the government. 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. Look: you're not QUALIFIED to define the term 'communism'. Simple as that. Stop trying. You just look bad (at best). However -- we DO know that NO new technology or research is going to be funded by a bankrupt World Capitalist order: unless of course, it appears to have 'Military significance'... So no wonder so many of you here are so hostile to the anti-Militarists amongst us: you are *eager* to get the *sure* funding which now accompanies the buildup to what looks like an increasingly likely WWIII.

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. -- Daniel Rocha - RJ danieldi...@gmail.com<mailto:danieldi...@gmail.com>
