Fantastic post — and they're sentiments that need to be heard everywhere (like here at GOOD), not just in anti-capitalist enclaves, as wonderful as they are.
With every technological advance, the potential is there to use it to liberate people, but instead they've been used to more effectively indenture people. Look at how we've more than doubled in productivity over the last several decades, but we're actually working longer hours and making less.
If ever there was a need for hierarchical management — in both our economic and political structures — it's long since dead. That's why we see elites spend more and more of their energies to keep convincing us that there is no alternative, that we *need* them.
