Part 3 in Tails of the Bourgeois-Sea
The problem with your society is that there’s no mechanism in place to prevent one group from accumulating wealth and controlling the means of production.
What do you mean? There is no production. We find all we need in nature.
Well all goods originate in nature, that’s not unique to your society. But people with power can always control and commodify natural resources.
That’s only true when there’s scarcity—we have no scarcity so we have no need of commerce.
If you think abundance alone will save you then you are fooling yourself. On my world enough food is grown to feed everyone twice over, yet millions starve each year.
So what’s your proposal then?
You have to abolish property and hold all wealth in common.
Sounds a lot like you’re Mom John.
Everybody gets a piece!
