okay this is cute but the next page reminds me of serval face so that's that
@dek I mean.. I don't always know what I mean.
@prydt @caseyp @Epsiloco That said this is a big picture question so it may be worth answering but this will get long... Full disclosure--I am a mutualist btw. Not really a communist per se (not because I disagree about the possibility of a post-scarce classless stateless society, but because I just feel communists are too vague on the property question and are often too dogmatic about markets). I call myself commie because most ppl see us all the same. lol
@prydt @caseyp @Epsiloco I understand you ask these questions to have a clearer picture of what the alternative would look like. My idea has always been tho that some problems can only be tackled when the time comes. Again, "communism" is just a negation of certain features seen as foundational to capitalism. So whatever I answer here that won't mean I've told you what communism is.
@prydt @caseyp @Epsiloco Most menial workers dislike their jobs because they get abysmally low pay, have little control over their schedule, and have little to no connection with the spaces they work for because they don't enjoy the benefits customers or clients do from the business, and they also have little control over decisions that might affect the amount of menial work they end up doing. They're also often seen as low-status by other workers.
@prydt @caseyp @Epsiloco Also, you're asking the wrong question. To be ironic, any business school would teach you that to make money you have to search for opportunities to monetize. It's not really about getting people to work, but getting people to buy what you're selling. In parallel fashion, the question isn't how do you motivate people, but what do people already do by default that could be shown to be useful for someone.
@prydt @caseyp @Epsiloco Studies have pretty much shown that money only acts as an incentive up to a certain point, past which it ceases to have any additional impact on performance. Makes complete sense because of variation in demand elasticity of goods, etc. Second, money is only able to motivate based on its exchangeability. Which means money's ability to motivate is a borrowed power from the desires and needs people already have for things.
