HI!

Jordan Peterson's "free speech" Thinkspot is a subscription-based private club/cult platform (ignoring abundant alternatives like SaidIt, Mastodon, Minds, Steemit, etc.) cloistered away from criticisms and challenges. Cowardly raising his rates he escaped a socialism debate with prof Richard Wolff. by JasonCarswell in JordanPeterson

I would highly recommend Basic Economics by Thomas Sowell. It's not political - just a clear explanation of how economics work. I'm a nerd so I got sproketboy nickname from an ex. ;)

How the hell is that an "authoritarian ideology"?

Because you can make a co-op and then a competitor makes a "normal" business and will out compete you. In a working market system the most cost effective ideas will usually win. So if co-ops were such a great solution they would be more widely used regardless of "promotion" in movies and TV. You might like this book on the subject https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In_Search_of_Excellence - there's a series as well but I can't find it. Hopefully the entire series will be archived but here's a good episode https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l3agg64LM88

The fundamental issue with Marxism is that everyone has to be on board for it to work which is not going to happen.

Only since 9-11 the USA's war of terror has killed 35 MILLION people

Agreed that the US didn't handle 9-11 properly. Gov is too influenced by the military industrial complex.

Stalin killed 40 million. Mao killed 100 million.

People can die in capitalist systems but in socialism systems the deaths are by design.

And for JBP - yes I wish he wouldn't waste time on yet-more platforms. The IDW types should just get together with minds.com or similar. I would prefer if he continued working on his biblical series.

Wolff comes down to one thing - Co-ops. Except you can create co-ops now. No one is stopping you. Go ahead.

The problems come from forcing everyone to be in a co-op which is the inevitable outcome of this authoritarian ideology. You can't escape it. Go spend some time with the Venezuelans, the Uyghurs, the Cubans, the Ukrainians, the Romanians, the Russians, etc, etc.. and ask them how well this worked out for them. But I guess you can't create a "utopia" without breaking a few eggs, right?
