No, capitalism is not an insurmountable horizon. No, indirect " democracy " is not " the best possible system ". ---- To change society, you need collective struggles ... but you also need a project. It must take stock of the failure of capitalism as Stalinist communism, which have never brought emancipation, freedom, social justice. Let's dispel a misunderstanding: RIC or not, there can be no genuine democracy in the context of capitalism. ---- Why ? Because it places the economic field " out of democracy ", in the hands of the market and a privileged minority, unelected, hereditary power. There can only be democracy against capitalism. ---- Download PDF to download ---- In capitalism In libertarian communism ---- The main means of production and distribution are the property of big business. ---- Socialized, they would become common goods because they are too vital to be controlled by a privileged minority.
In companies, work collectives must do despite the whims of a pest hierarchy . We would evict unnecessary management to make room for self-management by workers.
The markets and the state decide everything: abysmal social inequalities, overproduction on the one hand, mass unemployment on the other, and furious growth through the destruction of natural resources. The major economic guidelines would depend on democratic planning: we would choose to produce, how much and how, to preserve the planet.
The purpose of the economy is to generate profits for those who hold the capital. A useful or unprofitable good or service is not supposed to be produced. The purpose would be radically different: to find the balance between the needs of the populations, the capacities of production and the preservation of the ecosystem.
The state is a separate power of society. The political caste, right and left, manages the system in the direction desired by the markets. Without a capitalist straitjacket, a direct, federalist democracy would be possible. The company could finally make its own choices.
The capitalist system combines with the patriarchal system , which sees women, already less paid, provide a large amount of free domestic labor. It conveys an ideology of competition and domination that fuels racism and sexism. A feminist and anti-racist struggle would remain necessary to reduce discrimination. But material and social equality would facilitate this struggle to overcome a racist patriarchy and hierarchy that would no longer have any reason to be economic.
