Rick Santorum And “Marxism Talk” #commentary #socialmedia

It’s true that talk of the “middle class” and other classes is Marxism.

 

 

However it’s Marxisms talk (description) of a capitalist society.

If we were truly classless we’d not have people like Keith Gill who view money as a measurement and try to bully and intimidate people out of talking about what subject matters interest them.

Rick Santorum’s rhetoric is empty in the face of observable reality.

In Mason’s Postcapitalism, according to Open Democracy UK,

Paul Mason’s recent book Postcapitalism: A Guide to Our Future is undoubtedly a brilliant, thoughtful and provocative take on the contemporary state of capitalism.

One potential problem we might have is with Mason’s attempts to differentiate between networks and hierarchies. This is something he does frequently in his book. As a result, networks’ disruptive capacities take on an important and functional role in Mason’s vision. In many ways, networks, as a central part of a range of technological shifts, become the key mechanism for the transformations central to postcapitalism. What is crucial here is that networks are seen as providing an alternative to hierarchies.

Mason (212) suggests, for example, that ‘the main faultline in the modern world is between networks and hierarchies’. He adds that ‘everything is pervaded by a fight between network and hierarchy’ (144) and that ‘everything comes down to the struggle between the network and the hierarchy’ (xix). This somehow suggests that either networks can exist in a form that is not hierarchical or, perhaps, that they are by their very nature non-hierarchical. The question is whether either of these is actually the case.

 

That men like Keith Gill exists signals the failure of the founding father’s intent to create a country where we are classless, and people are able to speak openly and without fear of bullying and intimidation.

That EmpireKred claims to have no hierarchy, when they clearly do have one, is another.

Keith Gill needs to watch more Schoolhouse Rock!
