Dear fellow Earthlings, you have two main options:

- A post-capitalist future.
- A post-human future.

Pick wisely.

@aral hard choice... maybe the post-human future is the best at this point.

@aral post-human sounds good to me, I welcome our robot (GOF)AI successors

@aral It seems many would choose the latter, just to be "on the safe side" of the "political reality."

@aral Just got sent this link to a Guardian essay on neoliberalism, which i thought was a good read and timely.

@aral The more I watch the news, the more I tend to the latter.

@aral while I appreciate the sentiment, I'm fresh off learning a bit about Diocletian. Really large scale central planning led to a worthless currency, barter economy, serfdom and the middle ages. Let's not do that again.

@eludom @aral
Anarchists would say that central planning isn't the only alternative to capitalism.
Don't know much about how that's supposed to work though. Maybe I'll read up on it some day.

@aral i'm leaning towards post-human, for similar reasons as others have pointed out: probably safest bet for the other habitants of the planet.

@aral what does your alternative to capitalism look like?

@aral what about both

(wishing for a communist catgirl future)
