Capitalism is simply the idea that we should not use violence to solve nonviolent economic problems. What people get in their heads to do with money, or their attitude towards it, is completely irrelevant to what capitalism is.
Ultimately, yes. Property belongs to whoever most people agree it does, or to whoever has all the guns to enforce it how they like. It's either an inter-subjective consensus, or some kind of fiat. I prefer inter subjective consensus, obviously, since I trust it to eventually reach some kind of productive equilibrium.
You prefer. Though you are not everyone. Meaning the only way for that to be the case all the time (both in your ideal future and the real past) everyone has to feel that same way. Which as we know has not happened, and shows no indication of ever changing.
great concept the dollars in the book look a bit blurry to me and the one dollar piece at the top looks kind of harsh fr lack of a better term (as in not blended but looking cut) but other than that i enjoy it
Hi. I run this here little anarchist/anti-authoritarian artists group called The Red and Black Artists Coalition. We basically collect any and all subversive type artwork and display it together in one gallery so that all the artists involved may get better exposure and have the support of like-minded people.
I was wondering if I could add this particular piece of art of yours to our gallery.
I have featured this image in my new journal [link] which has the theme of iconoclasm. I will remove it if you find it's use there offensive. Thank you in either case for sharing your thought provoking image.
(On the work): Good job! Photoshop can be a very deep but powerful tool. You seem to have a pretty good handle on it so far.
(On the meaning): Iím not a religious person at all; truth and belief are two totally different things. I class religion and deities into the same group with mythology and magic. Itís quite ironic though that this piece to me portrays what religion is in itís truest form; A way for the cunning and deceitful to use fictional beliefs to prey on the hopelessly weak minded to gain money and power.
