Re: i think i'm in love with MagneticManopole ❤

@MagneticMonopole, are u a Marxist-Leninist?

I just want workers to have democratic control over their workplaces to some degree or other and share in the profits. I'm so easily pleased that I don't care much for how it gets implemented, so long as some version of it happens somehow.

Re: i think i'm in love with MagneticManopole ❤

Democratic control to what degree though? The specifics here are very important.

While possible in larger companies that already have a strong market footing, it could be a death knell for small companies who can't afford to linger around a ballot box while their competition streaks away.

I don't care much about the specifics, to be honest. It can range from employees voting once a year on whether their bosses get to keep their jobs, which is a low maintenance version of workplace democracy, to regular weekly meetings where everyone votes on various issues facing the company, which is high maintenance.

Both of these approaches have been successfully implemented in various companies throughout the world. (I'm sure they've been unsuccessfully implemented, too.)

Re: i think i'm in love with MagneticManopole ❤

i support and endorse this.

suck it.

Re: i think i'm in love with MagneticManopole ❤

hi

Re: i think i'm in love with MagneticManopole ❤

Did you read his answer? He's not a "Marxist-Lennonist" or whatever you fantasized.

I just want workers to have democratic control over their workplaces to some degree or other and share in the profits.

employees voting once a year on whether their bosses get to keep their jobs

If anything, that's the "libertarian" mindset of pirates during the golden age of piracy. Crews get equal shares, captains can be voted out…

I need to rethink my thoughts on Ol' Cap'n Monopole here!

Groovy

Re: i think i'm in love with MagneticManopole ❤

Loool well i was just happy that he replied to me… but yes, i've read his post. i still think he's a Commie, tho, but a modern day Commie who overcome and left behind Stalin and Pol Pot era methods and who isn't a tankie which is perfect to me bc i do not like tankie Commies.

i'm also a huge pirate lover. i pirate the internet all the time and Black Sails is one of my fav shows of all time.

anyways..

I need to rethink my thoughts on Ol' Cap'n Monopole here!

u are welcome.

suck it.

Re: i think i'm in love with MagneticManopole ❤

tankie Commies

Correct. He's a libertarian pirate.

u are welcome.

Oh I'm quite sure he still hates me.

Re: i think i'm in love with MagneticManopole ❤

Re: i think i'm in love with MagneticManopole ❤

Also, thanks for teaching me a new term today. I have never heard of a "tankie" until now.

Groovy

Re: i think i'm in love with MagneticManopole ❤

u are welcome, again. 🙂

I've heard it described as "libertarian socialism" before. That's how Chomsky identifies, for instance.

Re: i think i'm in love with MagneticManopole ❤

Chomsky is a great man.

suck it.

Re: i think i'm in love with MagneticManopole ❤

I see what you are saying but I don't think the pirates of that age go that far because while they were clearly against the Crown, they had their own system of laws and punishments. I don't think they were full-on anarchists like lil' sophie

Groovy

Re: i think i'm in love with MagneticManopole ❤

pirates actually were anarchists at heart and lived by it when they weren't on a ship. of course on a ship, with all the stuff there is to do there to navigate the ship on the high seas and then also attack the royal navy ships u gotta have a hierarchal system with the Captain in charge and his or her quarter master taking care of the ship's crew's needs and all that in order to make the whole venture work. there are different laws and situations on a ship when u have to survive and also get going on the high seas as well as fight against the crown. i get that. it is inevitable, but once a pirate set his or her foot on land, anarchism reigned supreme. hell yeah.

watch Black Sails if u don't believe me, buddy.

the similar situation with me, i have to live by and accept state rules to survive and get going on with my life but at heart i fucking don't care about this system.

suck it.

Re: i think i'm in love with MagneticManopole ❤

i have to live by state rules to survive and get going on with my life

Well my friend, there are places here in the States where one can go off-grid and live against the State and pretty much be left alone, so long as you aren't plotting against the State. If I ever fully disappear, you'll know I went there

Groovy

Re: i think i'm in love with MagneticManopole ❤

how will ur family feel about ur disappearance?

i also mean state rules in terms of my education. there is that power dynamic which i usually am opposed to but i have to accept in order to get my degree.

suck it.

Re: i think i'm in love with MagneticManopole ❤

Who said I was leaving them? We all love the moutains and wide open spaces!

Groovy

Re: i think i'm in love with MagneticManopole ❤

that's cool but u are replying too quickly. read my edit.

suck it.

Re: i think i'm in love with MagneticManopole ❤

LOL are you on your phone? Swipe faster!

Before I *poof* to a compound, I still want to achieve my giving back dream first. Did I ever tell you that?

I would love to buy a small chunk of land close to where I live, put about 30 or so tiny homes on it in a "village style" set-up and let homeless Vets live there for up to a year rent-free. In the "village", I would build a counseling center to help with any physical and mental health issues they face, career counseling and job search assistance, etc. Build a large fitness center, a "lodge" for recreational activities, and of course a kickass coffee house .

Groovy

Re: i think i'm in love with MagneticManopole ❤

Lol yup on my phone.

but this sounds really cool, honestly. and doable and realistic. i hope u can achieve this and fulfill ur dream one day. i guess traumatised vets really need all our support, sth we seem to forget.

suck it.

Re: i think i'm in love with MagneticManopole ❤

I believe we all need support at one time or another. Life is at times a messy thing. It's how that support is offered/given is where people differ so greatly.

Yes that would be a great accomplishment if I could somehow pull this off.

Groovy

Re: i think i'm in love with MagneticManopole ❤

that's true.

suck it.

Re: i think i'm in love with MagneticManopole ❤

Ok, I have kept you away long enough. Get back to your Monopole adoration you love-struck fool!

Remember Sophie, it's capitalism that makes your welfare check possible

Re: i think i'm in love with MagneticManopole ❤

i don't get welfare. however, the welfare system is actually an achievement of Socialism.
