the first step to change is to not confront people and passive aggressively post what you’re thinking on the internet to no one in particular then go home and go to bed, or something like that
people are talking about politics at work
if work automation and advances in labor technology to make it easier for people to have access to goods is bad for ur economic system your first reaction should probably be thinking about how to change the flawed system itself not impeding forward progress; the people who currently own the means of production value their own numbers over taking care of more people with less work. the 40 hour work week is archaic but rigid because we still value the “hour of work in -> hour of pay out” construct even though we as a people have had the means to share much more with each other with much less work for quite some time. getting scared of automatons “taking jobs” is a rational reaction when we’re living in our current system which the people who are just trying to feed their kids w/ minimum wage are stuck in and i don’t blame them for thinking it, it’s just a shame that any rational and well meaning person would say that automating labor for us would be good under any system that works for the people, even for the ones who would lose their jobs to robots - because they (as well as everyone else!) would gain the rewards of the more efficient production, not be scared of it. capitalism doesn’t even work on paper

greets to my newest best friend ary
I walked two miles in the rain in a suit,
my feet torn up by my father’s shoes.
Receipts and cards tumble out of my pocket
to the floor of the station. I still don’t have a wallet.
Get out of my way because I’m 25
and I still act like I’m 10 goddamn years old
