Db0 provided a link to a company in Brazil with supposedly innovative business practices that, according to db0, looks like socialism, hence the title of his post. There is a video on youtube which has been reset to prevent embedding in blog posts, so I can only give the link. It is an interesting video and worth taking a look at.
Anyway I also note that Db0 has been having problems with Marxists who advocate violent revolution, which I beleive db0 rejects - at least I hope so. (Note that it is my view Marx, along with Freud, is so 20th century, but lets leave that for now). Now let me quote from a wonderful piece (although I do not whole heartedly endorse it) by J. L Mackie, to show that this company is contradictory evidence to the
the traditional Marxist thesis that capitalism cannot be reformed by the moral conversion of individual capitalists: as long as the 'relations of production' are unchanged an individual capitalist who attempts to give up exploitation is merely replaced by someone else who plays his social role more efficiently.I hope db0 can use this point to bash those unreformed violent revolutionary Marxists over the head with. That is all I wanted to say in my comment that I could not make on his blog.
Finally I ain't interested in Marxist ideas but I do need a position on them and am willing, at the right time, to debate with db0 and barefoot bum on them - since I can see that constructive debate could ensue, even if we remain in disagreement. Please note that now is not that time.
