Le Criptovalute non Salvano dal Lavoro Capitalista
Di Eric Fleischmann. Originale: Crypto Will not Save Us from the Capitalist Workplace del 7 marzo 2022. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. Ho già detto altrove, e lo ripeto, che “non sono particolarmente amante della tecnologia. Sono sì un fan delle tecnologie open source, paritarie, decentrate, appropriate e così via, ma per il resto ne so…
Los Cripto no nos salvarán del Sistema Capitalista de Trabajo
De Eric Fleischmann. Artículo original: Crypto Will Not Save Us From the Capitalist Workplace, publicado el 7 de marzo 2022. Traducido al español por Kesabel Babe. He admitido antes y admitiré nuevamente que “no soy particularmente un experto en tecnología. Soy un animador de la tecnología open-source, peer-to-peer, descentralizada, apropiada, etc., pero, por lo demás,…
Crypto Will Not Save Us From the Capitalist Workplace
I’ve admitted before and will admit again that “I am not particularly tech-savvy. I am a cheerleader for open-source, peer-to-peer, decentralized, appropriate, etc. technology, but, otherwise, I am only about as knowledgeable about this stuff as your average zoomer.” However, I have observed that with the rise of cryptocurrencies and blockchain there has emerged a line…
Against All Bosses: Government AND Corporate on Feed 44
C4SS Feed 44 presents Kevin Carson‘s “Against All Bosses: Government AND Corporate” read by Tony Dreher and edited by Nick Ford. “My hatred of bosses is at the root of my identification, not only as a libertarian — but as a Leftist. My instinctive affinity for the “you’re not the boss of me” sentiment, which Masciotra dismisses…
Worshipping the Boss on Feed 44
C4SS Feed 44 presents Roderick Long‘s “Worshipping the Boss” read by Joey Clark and edited by Nick Ford. “Judging from what he writes and where he writes it, I reckon Masciotra fancies himself a man of the left. There was a time when “Dump the Bosses Off Your Back” was a popular leftist slogan. But the idea…
Worshipping the Boss
In an anti-libertarian rant titled “You’re Not the Boss of Me! Why Libertarianism Is a Childish Sham,” David Masciotra charges that libertarianism amounts to the petulant selfishness of a child who resents all restrictions on his or her behavior. Masciotra conveniently focuses on libertarians’ saying “you have no right to impose stuff on us,” while…
Against All Bosses: Government AND Corporate
I keep resolving not to comment on any more of Alternet‘s by-the-numbers anti-libertarian puff pieces, but a recent one from David Masciotra (“You’re Not the Boss of Me: Why Libertarianism is a Childish Sham,” February 26) is in its own category of wretchedness. Masciotra’s commentary includes two seemingly contradictory lines of argument. In the first,…
A Stiff Upper Lip Doesn’t Make Politics Go Away
Iain Levison’s A Working Stiff Manifesto (2002) reads like a less political and more sardonic version of Barbara Ehrenreich’s tale of the working poor in America, Nickel and Dimed. The subtitle, A Memoir of Thirty Jobs I Quit, Nine that Fired me, and Three I Can’t Remember means that Levison gives a more detailed account…
