The more productivity increases, the more misery increases – it is the dystopia of a world that would benefit from industrialization, that would provide social equality and free humanity from mechanical, non reflective work. But capitalism has accelerated the creation of more work, the continual overload, the consumerism and the annihilation of nature and people systematically. Workers remain subdued today, with other parameters from third sector activity and the replacement of formal work by a model of individual entre-preneurship.
Mud, oil, totalitarian regimes – “from the periphery emerges urgency” *: the basis needs to be changed.
