70 i’m watching my little son change, though, from day to day and minute to minute..  it’s terrifying and beautiful.. (on rainbows being common where her husband grew up) they are no less amazing for their prevalence.. ditto birds, trees, stars, clouds, children, and so on.. to the laws of supply and demand the real world is immune

socially beneficial use of the data stream our online meanderings leave behind,

as opposed to current use to advertise to us?I could get behind that.

[whole thread on coincidence of wants page] _________ from Erich Fromm‘s the sane society:
87 if the wealth of society corresponded to the actual needs of all its members, there would be no problem of distributing it; each member could take from the social product as much as he likes, or needs, and there would be no need of regulation , except in the purely technical sense of distribution.. but aside from primitive societies, this condition has never existed up to now in human history.. t
common ing via 2 convers as infra
the needs were always greater than the sum total of the social product, and therefore regulation had to be made on how to distribute it..  in most highly developed societies of the past, this decision was made essentially by force.. often implemented by social/religious tradition.. which constituted such a strong psychic force w/in people that it often made the threat of physical force unnecessary..

Jason Hickel (@jasonhickel) tweeted at 3:50 AM on Wed, Jun 03, 2020: Capitalism structurally compels us to work and produce beyond society’s actual needs. And the more we produce, the more we have to consume, to mop up overproduction. Consumption becomes a structural imperative – a form of labour in itself. The consumer is not sovereign, but serf.

_________ from murray bookchin‘s ecology of freedom:
41 but primary to both of these seemingly contrasting relationships is the practice of usufruct, the freedom of individuals in a community to appropriate resources merely by virtue of the fact that they are using them.. such resources belong to the user as long as they are being used.. function, in effect, replaces our hallowed concept of possession.. not merely as a loan or even ‘mutual aid’.. but as an unconscious emphasis on use itself.. on need that is free of psychological entanglements w proprietorship work and even reciprocity..  t

huge.. sans all the red flags

graeber stop at enough law
communal property, once property itself has become a category of consciousness, already marks the first step toward private property.. just as reciprocity, once it too becomes a category of consciousness, marks the first step toward exchange..
wilde property law, reciprocity, graeber exchange law, marsh exchange law, et al
there may have been a period in humanity’s early development when interest had not yet emerged to replace complementarity, the disinterested willingness to pool needed things and needed services.. there was a time .. wandering into remote reaches of arctic.. encounter ‘the pure, true eskimos.. the eskimos who knew not how to lie’.. and hence to manipulate, to calculate, to project a private interest beyond social need..  here, community attained a completeness to exquisite and artless that needed things and services fit together in a lovely mosaic w a haunting personality of its own
have\need ness.. ‘in undisturbed ecosystems ..the average individual, species, or population, left to its own devices, behaves in ways that serve and stabilize the whole..’ –Dana Meadows if we would just let go enough.. trust enough.. to org around legit needs
we should not disdain these almost utopian glimpses of humanity’s potentialities.. pre lit peoples that still lack an ‘i’ w which to replace a ‘we’ are not deficient in individuality as much as they are rich in community.. coop.. is more than just a cement between members of the group; it is an organic melding of id’s that w/o losing individual uniqueness, retains and foster the unity of consociation.. contract, forced into this wholeness, serves merely to subvert it turning an unthinking sense of responsibility into a calculating nexus of aid and an unconscious sense of collectivity into a preening sense of mutuality.. as for reciprocity, so often cited as the highest evocation fo collectivity, we shall see that it is more significant in forming alliances between groups than in fostering internal solidarity w/in them.. usufruct in short, differs qualitatively from the quid pro quo of reciprocity, exchange and mutual aid.. all of which are trapped w/in history’s demeaning account books w their ‘just’ ratios and their ‘honest’ balance sheets..t 42 caught in this limited sphere of calc, consociation is always tainted by the rationality of arithmetic.. the human spirit can never transcend a quantitative world of ‘fair dealing’ between canny egos whose ideology of interest barely conceals a mean spirited proclivity for acquisition.. to be sure, social forces were to fracture the human collectivity by introducing contractual ties and cultivating the ego’s most acquisitive impulses..
of math and men et al
insofar as the guileless peoples of organic societies held to the values of usufruct in an unconscious manner, they remained terribly vulnerable to the lure, often the harsh imposition, of an emerging contractual world.. rarely is history notable for its capacity to select/preserve the most virtuous traits of humanity.. but there is still no reason why hope, reinforced by consciousness and redolent w ancestral memories, may not linger w/in us as an awareness of what humanity has been in the past and what it can become in the future..
