Natural remedy: if you're feeling low on energy in the mornings, take down capitalism.

@mux2000 Tired of dragging yourself out to the office day after day? Feeling that ol' malaise? Try some revolution! It's not guaranteed to help, but it can't realy be worse htan THIS, right?

@abgd @eladhen @yair even at the height of their power, unions could only carve out some relief from the oppression of capitalism.

They were never about freedom from capitalism, but about negotiating with it for a modicum of relief.


@eladhen @abgd @mux2000 Of course, they were socialist. There's no socialism without capitalism, and neither the other way around (at least as long as production requires at least some humans - von-Neumann probes are pure capital).
But the range between the extremes is huge, and those 50s socialists managed to get a pretty decent spot.
