I also meant to add that the ecological consequences of capitalism's functional need for permanent "economic growth" may be disastrous, so it's perhaps understandable that they are more often discussed than the anthropological consequences of the system of productionism-consumptionism.

In any case, these seem pretty good reasons to be socialist, i.e. to favour the subordination of the productive system to democratic control of some kind.

So, where is my thinking wrong (as opposed to fuzzy, ill-defined, underargued etc., which it surely is) here?

(I should also point out, lest anyone be misled, that the title of the last post was a reference to the Ian Dury song, not indicitive of previous posts).
