If workers controlled the means of production in a for-need system, automation would mean vacations, not widespread loss of livelihood.
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.
