(en) anarkismo.net: Will the revolution be anarchist/libertarian-communist/socialist? by Ilan S.

Date Wed, 18 Apr 2018 11:42:32 +0300

The revolution that will put end to the global capitalist system will survive if it will succeed in a very short time to replace the authoritarian power structure with a direct democracy one, in a big enough part of the developed world, that will be able to survive independently and protect itself. ---- The organised direct democracy will have to reconstruct the system of production and services from the capitalist one oriented for profits to the socialist/communist/libertarian oriented to supply the needs of the people. ---- Whether it will distribute the products according to efforts/contribution of "socialism" or according to the communist principle of needs, will be decided by the direct democracy. ---- As the monitoring of "personal efforts contributed" in a modern economy is nearly impossible and as the supply of basic needs according to needs is essential for solidarity, the option for remuneration according to efforts will be possible only according to extra hours of work for extra quota of the luxury. This will abolish the difference between "socialism" or "the pseudo lower level of communism", and "high level of communism".

The speculations-predictions of previous revolutionary writers of 150 years ago or even 100 and 50 are so outdated that it is absurd to look to their writings for prescriptions.

The imaginary dream of a communist system which will abolishing the need for people to work, will be replaced by a rational approach about a small quota of weekly work hours people will be mandated to their tasks by their communities.

The dream about unlimited plenty which will enables everyone to take what one wants will be replaced (due to unlimited urges and limit in resources), by a two-level system in which part of the products and services - the basic ones, will be supplied according to needs, the urges and wants beyond the basic needs will be supplied as equal quota of "luxuries", to be chosen from by each (as Issac Puentes wrote in 1934).
