Here's the thing. Companies which are large and have been around for a long time having bad employees and employment conditions which are discriminatory or abusive is not some anomaly. This is just how Capitalism works. Value extraction is a game in which most of the employees are always losers, and playing one gender against another is just one tactic within the game. Divisiveness ensures that power goes unchallenged.

@kirosaima Hiya ^.^ Municipalism is the main component of communalism, which in turn is built from Bookchin's social ecology theory: that nearly all of the world's ecological problems stem from social problems (in particular, capitalism's 'grow or die' habit). So in short: No, municipalism, if anything, was conceived to undermine capitalism, or kill it, stomp it, light it on fire etc etc etc :)

is distinguished by its insistence that the underlying problem with society is our . and the not only cause extraordinary material suffering and , they also rob us of the ability to play a meaningful role in our own lives and communities .cultivate the new society within the shell of the old by eroding the stateโ€™s popular legitimacy and dissolving its power into face-to-face peopleโ€™s assemblies and confederations

Epic rant.

And underneath all of this is just capitalism. The idea that knowledge or high levels of education can allow you to bypass the class system - i.e. that self-improvement and bureaucratic certification enables you to avoid confronting the real social relations at large - is pretty much an illusion.

Read enough history and America was never really all that great. There is plenty of inconvenient stuff swept under the carpet. Erased from the school curricula. I'm not trying to be smug either, because the history of Britain has plenty of atrocities of its own.

- How Japan is a right capitalist society and still successful?

- Cuba?
