Suggesting boycotting a corporation to a socialist would signal a "missing of the point" with which I'd agree. The point is to remove the offending system, not to merely voice displeasure of it. Once you declare the your own role within the capitalist arrangement unacceptable (being surplus producers), it falls apart. That is, it CANNOT function without the surplus being produced. Surplus isn't the same as profit.

But people can still refuse to buy corporations products. Why do people buy DURACELL batteries? Can they put different chemical inside just because they paint the outside in black and copper. I thought it was really funny when they used Duracell batteries in the movie The Matrix. Whose fault is it if we let corporations brainwash us with their marketing? I suggested to some socialists that they start a global boycott of Duracell. No effect. Xum

Here is a quite recent lecture that gets into and explains more clearly some of the reasons for my comments. The internal logic and characteristics of capitalism are ultimately both undesirable and unsustainable. The meat of the discussion starts at the 5:00 min mark and speaks to ER's point about changing the kind of capitalism or middle ground options around the 20:00 mark.

There's got to be something midway between socialism and capitalism. Would that be the definition of a true Democracy, maybe???

ER There's a bit of a mix of conflation and confusion over what capitalism and socialism are. Capitalism particular is a way of organizing production/business not necessarily a form of governance (notwithstanding the desire to control governance for its own interest.) Socialism is not an economic system....as such. Once the internal logic of capitalism is understood, there's too often little desire to keep it an any middle ground sort of fashion.

Well .... little desire on the part of the capitalist , maybe!! But ... the other 99% most often don't agree with that perspective!! Socialism isn't necessarily an "economic system", per se ... but the economy of a country is very much affected by the social construction. I think most people don't mind somebody (a capitalist) being successful and utilizing capitalism as a means to further their financial goals!! However ... just by reason of the 'rules' of capitalism ... it's ridiculous to...

The real problem with Capitalism in America is the fact that American voters have allowed and/or voted in time after time legislators that have systematically taken away all of the systems of checks and balances required to make Capitalism fair to all.

Its not an issue of the rules of capitalism, its about the internal logical (and other) contradictions that come with capitalism. This is something every economic class will teach-they simply make it all look and sound reasonable so the people accept it as normal. While some may accept a middle ground- the logic of a capitalist (regardless of background) will never accept a middle ground because capitalist logic prevents it. I absolutely agree that the social construct pays a part in the...

I think we need to distinguish capitalism from people's willingness to LIE in order justify whatever abuses they can get away with and CLAIM it is in the name of CAPITALISM.

dear god. That caption is exactly what capitalism is. Business owners in the US (including Black business owners) have and continue to play that game. Get workers to do more (for them) while paying less for it. That is the internal logic of the capitalist system, whether here, China, Africa....anywhere. This denial and fear of talking about capitalism by name is tragic but has run its course.
