Tapping the blast furnace #6 at Novolipetsk steel plant. The furnace had been put into operation in 1978. It produces 3.1 million tons of hot iron a year.

yall when communists say they want to eliminate private property, they mean things like public land everyone needs access to, or the means of production, like factories, or homes that aren’t occupied, or landlords, roads, and so on.

Personal property is not something communist seek to eliminate, for instance, no one expects you to share your toothbrush, except capitalists who believe if you can’t afford a toothbrush you must make due with what you have, which may be a communal toothbrush.

A few years ago my parents went to Amalfi and bought this sketchbook of watercolour paper made by Amatruda, one of the most ancient factories for the production of paper. I made this other drawing of Chihiro to test this sketchbook, and let me tell you this paper is madly absorbent, it was very difficult to paint on it.


Ive had these characters for a while but have yet to post them. Their designs arnt final.

The top one’s name is unpronounceable to human (or other species’) speach, tho they are often called Trogon in common tongue. The owner of a rubber goods manufacturing company, Trogon has little respect for Banxers beyond labor and as an “evolutionary oddity”. Their gaudy clothing is rather…provocative by Daw standards. They find Banxer’s inability to see most colors “fascinating” and try to incorporate “invisible hues” as much as possible into their attire.

Little one is “Prawn”, a younger Daw and recently employed Human Banxer resources representative at Trogon’s most productive factory. Prawn tries to be sympathetic and understanding to the Banxer workers, but at heart just really doesnt want conflict and seems a little too eager to appease Trogon’s apathy when things get difficult.


Before and After Colonisation

The British, referred to the ingenuity and resourcefulness of the Congolese people as ‘Primitive’ because they respected the land they lived on and understand the harmony that mankind and nature must abide by. In cultivating Palm trees, they only took what was needed for themselves to feed their families, and constructed a simple but efficient system of refining palms into oil and other products for many different purposes.

The British observed  and studied their technique, in their greed they decided to make it into a mass production enterprise, one explorer stated “buried in their jungle, they were too backward to realise the vast inheritance it had to offer, the untapped resources of their vast continent…wealth lay wasting”

It is by this same so called ‘primitive’ invention that they sought out to make profit from Palm (Palm Trees only grow in Tropical climates so the English knew nothing on how to cultivate and process it) they took the  invention of the Congolese and  enforced their system of capitalism in their country to fund their industrial ‘revolution’, producing more than was necessary, raping the land, causing major issues such as deforestation, habitat degradation, climate change, animal cruelty and for the vast majority if not all of the profits to be enjoyed in their own countries.

They then spread propaganda worldwide; ‘the savages lived in darkness’ 'we found them swinging from trees’ 'we saved them from  themselves’, 'we civilised them’ and etc

They made it larger scale, a little tweak there, a little alteration here, and the white man has the audacity to herald himself as an inventor.

Making alterations to a pre-existing system/product whilst keeping the core technique does not make you an inventor. Its called Plagiarism.

Hey, so I have been researching socialism and other leftist ideologies and I agree with many of their ideals. I agree with the idea of not focusing on profit/materialism as is seen in capitalism but I wondering what would be the place of money and private property under socialism. I don't want to live in a society without possessions, money, and where everyone has the exact same things. Is there a way that we can have a system not built on profit and exploitation that still allows money/things.

So the key here is not to confuse personal property with private property. Private property refers to the means of production (factories, etc. where goods are produced) not possessions of individuals. Marxism seeks to transfer ownership of the means of production from the capitalist class (individuals who own factories, corporations, etc that produce goods that people need) into the hands of the working class (those who actually work in those factories and establishments to create the goods we all need). What is being abolished is the idea that private individuals should have control over the production and distribution of goods that all people need. We as socialists argue that the workers who make the goods should collectively take ownership of the means of production.

This does not apply to “personal property” which is things like your books, clothes, toothbrush, etc. Under socialism people would not be forced to “share everything” as many pro-capitalism folks like to claim. Workers would still exchange money for goods and services, the main difference from capitalism being that 1) workers would be paid fairly and 2) the goods generally available would be based on the needs/wants of the working class. It’s also important to note here that the idea of a Spartan bare-bones existence for workers in a socialist society is false- goods and services for leisure/pleasure would still be made and sold.

Housing is an issue people often bring up when discussing property. It may seem that many people are “homeowners” in our capitalist society, while others sleep on the streets as apartment buildings and homes remain empty. In a socialist society, housing would be owned collectively by the working class, and would be distributed as needed so that everyone has a place to live. No one would “own” a home, but they would certainly have access to a home to live in. Besides, the idea of owning a home in a capitalist society most often consists of paying a mortgage to a bank that actually owns the home. There are a few people that own homes outright, but that’s quite unusual.

Though the ultimate goals of socialism is communism (a classless, stateless society where all people cooperate freely), socialism itself definitely still involves exchanging money for goods and services. Communism seeks to abolish wages and currency, but Marxists believe that socialism is a transitional step to help us make the leap from capitalism to communism.

The key here is that goods and services are produced directly to fill human need, rather than to generate profit for a ruling class. The nitty gritty details of how money works in a given socialist state varies- it can in fact look somewhat similar to a capitalist society, where workers are paid a wage for their labor. The difference is that wages in a socialist society would be based on the quantity and quality of the work done + what amount of money is essential to sustaining the livelihood of the worker. Because the socialist economy would be planned according to human need, this wage would have to be sure to provide a sustainable life for the worker. The general idea is that workers take home the amount of value they create.

Under capitalism, the bosses hide the fact that workers are not paid for all the work they do. The concept of workers producing surplus value for their capitalist employer is central to the capitalist system; without this injustice, the ruling class would not be able to dominate the working class so effectively. This “surplus value” goes directly into the pockets of the capitalist class.

I hope this explanation clears up some of your concerns about money and property under socialism!
