All authenticated users have write access to most talk pages here, but not this one. Considering a  wiki instance for each proper geonode with write access to front matter, but here in commons/staging it's limited to operator class. As noted in the [[:en:user_talk:lycurgus|enwiki talk page]], I now limit my edits of the front matter there to tidying up. Happy to talk about an article, produce a version of one [[EnWP|  here ]] where I am "Root" not "Lycurgus", .  [[User:Root|Root]] ([[User talk:Root|talk]]) 12:10, 11 May 2020 (UTC)

In another place I will comment on the careful use of language, but yes that's right, that's a main sense of the term "Capitalist". It's also true of course that I would be committing a fallacy of composition if I asserted that the owner of a factor of a thing was the owner of the thing. It's also true there is no cheat or exploitation when labor is fairly compensated for its factor in production, by established market values, presuming those market values are in fact fair.<p>

<p>
However as Marx and Marxists will explain, the essence of this system is 1) the expropriation of the [[:en:surplus value]] (which is called "profit") in the struck price of the house or car and 2) the [[:en:Base and superstructure|basing]] of all production and indeed all of society on this scheme of expropriation, as an "ism" (cf Heilbroner, ''Nature of Capitalism'').<p>

Moreover, the lie or cheat and attempt at domination are clear in the general failure of honest accounting which is at the core of this system.

In that case the Capitalist is simply a (possibly vincibly corrupt) knowledge Worker and charges a known amount for her factor of organizing production.<p>

But the entire system is based on subverting such openness in accounting which is why I wanted the current POTUS to be in a contest with Sanders, although the latter is a poor anti partner to the former, who is more or less an epitome of the system, a pure brand rentier with not even the role in production common to a Gates or in speculation to a Buffet. It is also a poor basis for the structuring of society, substituting what is appropriate to individual motivation as an organizing principle for a collective without an [[:en:invisible hand|actual]] means of reconciling the different interests.<p>

When labor is relatively simple and easily commodified such as in manufacturing line workers the model can work fairly well. However when such commodification is impossible as for example in the intellectual worker, or when collective interests can't be reduced to individual gain the system fails and blocks needed responses.<p>

It's only a paradox because we are just at the point where we can ask the question, having only had language and what is called thinking, civilization, and science for successively shorter periods of time. Today there is still no human culture based on scientific values and only 1 known to me with any [[:en:Scientific Outlook on Development|program]] to have such a basing. So in a way even asking the question is presumptuous, given the current state of cultural development of the questioner.

:Please refer to GMRV on this, I do not have a current biz relationship with them, was a W2/4 employee at the time, and the action was approved by Earl (COO and I think the person who captured the image) and implicitly the ownership. I believe the admin (Michele Simmons) was supposed to supply anything needed in terms of what you may be asking for.

After that you can still edit by ip but you will have recourse to something other than just that ip.

Should you decide to work the article, an interesting use of the term not currently noted in the article would be as a substantiation of what Krishnamurti noted and currently itemized as #3 in the Schools &sect; of his article. This and the itemized logical program I gave in response to your complaint on the Antireligion talk page both refer to the possibility of a school or schools of thought which would be rightly called an "Antireligion". This connotation of the term is not currently in the Antireligion article and as a result  of a number of factors probably never will be, but it is likely a more productive thing than your efforts in re "Antireligionists" which may be a non-starter in English as there are other terms already established.

Talk Archives up to Sept. 2007 | up to Blossom 4706 | enwiki last

All authenticated users have write access to most talk pages here, but not this one. Considering a wiki instance for each proper geonode with write access to front matter, but here in commons/staging it's limited to operator class. As noted in the enwiki talk page, I now limit my edits of the front matter there to tidying up. Happy to talk about an article, produce a version of one here where I am "Root" not "Lycurgus", .

I upgrade mediawiki once it's "too" downlevel, but I don't try to keep up with the latest version without a compelling reason. Root (talk) 14:39, 3 May 2020 (UTC)

Simple Principles for World Revolution

  • Disintermediation of the relation between the lead workers and the consumer of ihr labor so that it is that of one sovereign to another.
  • Production for use¹ (at cost) of socially necessary goods and services transparently accounted in a common money based on labor time which working people create themselves.
  • A pragmatic transitional Program but one that never compromises the most rapid advancement to the realization of these two end goals (political disintermediation and de-privatisation of the basis of subsistence/production).

    So for example the first principle might be worked out at lower levels than provincial or national level before regionally or internationally but from the beginning it should sweep clean private tyrannies and conspiracies from the bottom up. And it might not be able to be applied at the local level until there is sufficient understanding of how to do so. But an advancement in understanding is itself a sufficient gain that its solidification can be associated with a more or less sudden collapse rather than a slow withering away of structures of the old society can be anticipated. Similarly the fiat money of the nation-state system can co-exist with the new relegated to its proper sphere.

Reply to struth on an Article by E.J.Dionne

WaPo closes comments after two weeks so I'm compulsively responding to this reply to my comment on E.J. Dionne's article Capitalists should listen to Bernie Sanders.

In another place I will comment on the careful use of language, but yes that's right, that's a main sense of the term "Capitalist". It's also true of course that I would be committing a fallacy of composition if I asserted that the owner of a factor of a thing was the owner of the thing. It's also true there is no cheat or exploitation when labor is fairly compensated for its factor in production, by established market values, presuming those market values are in fact fair.

However as Marx and Marxists will explain, the essence of this system is 1) the expropriation of the en:surplus value (which is called "profit") in the struck price of the house or car and 2) the basing of all production and indeed all of society on this scheme of expropriation, as an "ism" (cf Heilbroner, Nature of Capitalism).

Moreover, the lie or cheat and attempt at domination are clear in the general failure of honest accounting which is at the core of this system. In principle, the Marxists complaints could and can be dismissed where there is open and clear accounting, at least insofar as a narrow focus on the deal in production is concerned, which for that matter are to some extent required at least at the level of monopoly/big Capital. In that case the Capitalist is simply a (possibly vincibly corrupt) knowledge Worker and charges a known amount for her factor of organizing production.

But the entire system is based on subverting such openness in accounting which is why I wanted the current POTUS to be in a contest with Sanders, although the latter is a poor anti partner to the former, who is more or less an epitome of the system, a pure brand rentier with not even the role in production common to a Gates or in speculation to a Buffet. It is also a poor basis for the structuring of society, substituting what is appropriate to individual motivation as an organizing principle for a collective without an actual means of reconciling the different interests.

When labor is relatively simple and easily commodified such as in manufacturing line workers the model can work fairly well. However when such commodification is impossible as for example in the intellectual worker, or when collective interests can't be reduced to individual gain the system fails and blocks needed responses.

Excellent as an economic regime under enlightened leadership as the Chinese Communist Party has shown and was the case here when it was in planetary opposition.

A disaster qualified success for some at best as a basis for en:society per se.

A Religious Definition of Communisms

That spectrum of conceptions of the organization of en:society, in which it, society as a whole, has effectively reached full self-consciousness, transcending those objectifications of the other vestigial in socialisms and which are the hallmark of primitive social orders, in a pure relation of the individual to society, not just the nation state, local power elites, revolutionary cadres, etc. but the totality of living beings of at least one's species of origin. 72.228.177.92 (talk) 15:11, 4 December 2011 (UTC)

about CANDE

I wrote the B6500 version of CANDE, which was quite different from the 5500 version, and both have been heavily modified over the years. You can contact me at ivan at ootbcomp dot com.

noting Igodard wrote above, so there's no confusion I'm saying I wrote the en:CANDE MCS. 198.255.198.157 (talk) 13:13, 21 April 2014 (UTC)

End of IP editing

The situation with ip edits is like the failure of Socialism with the current human stock, the masses of the old society, this being borne to me by the recent need to block such from the US Congress. Until now I felt that it was preferable to defend anonymous editing in the spirit of wiki but I see the wrongheadedness of this now so will only edit mainspace with this account which is the only named one I've ever used to edit here. Lycurgus (talk) 05:54, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

Followed this policy until end of 2015 then gradually reverted to mostly by the ipv4 address used for 2y or so up to this point and whose talk page I've reset back so it can be released/reused. Lycurgus (talk) 06:18, 25 June 2016 (UTC)
Probably will, and do want to stop completely at some point, still compulsively correcting, responding to tags, the more egregious distortion/falsehoods, mostly by IP for last 6 mo or so, and always clearly traceable back to here. 98.4.124.117 (talk) 22:22, 15 April 2017 (UTC)
New opportunity with recent release of the cable ISP ip, we'll see how it goes. Should have this CMS SSO enabled soon. Root (talk) 15:55, 17 January 2020 (UTC)

The Future of an Illusion

I don't have time to defend content from attack such as this article is currently under. There's a modicum of social service I will perform here but pretty much at or past my limit in dealing with the individual attacking this article. Will pull this into my space and change the link on my user page to point to it rather than conflict with the individual FreeKnowledge-Something. The established and ongoing policy, otherwise my wiki editing service would be a horror of dealing with such individuals. Don't want. I will work with others to defend the public content, otherwise TRTTD is the course mentioned/taken. Lycurgus (talk) 09:02, 15 March 2015 (UTC)

In closing (I hope) noting that I didn't carefully read everything the individual had to say, in particular didn't read all the text he put on the talk thread I opened. Lycurgus (talk) 09:53, 15 March 2015 (UTC)

Help fix the gender bias on Wikipedia?

Hi there - I'm working on four fix-the-Gender-Bias articles, listed here User:LeoRomero/scxc. Could use your expertise. - Thanks and Mabuhay! - LoRETta/LeoRomero 18:59, 15 December 2015 (UTC)

Hi LeoRomero :) I am sympathetic to your cause but I have a new year's resolution for 2016 to sharply reduce the time I spend in general internet/social media, such as wikimedia. It's just for a year, so I will revisit this at the end of 2016. However, SFAIK, outside of whatever the ambient culture has, there's no such bias known to me in the English wikipedia. Lycurgus (talk) 03:08, 31 December 2015 (UTC)
I'm not planning to resume editing so responding now. Since the response above have learned that wiki recognizes WP:BIAS but basically it's what I allude to, namely a result of the demographics of the primary contributors. Nonetheless acknowledging it is a thing. Since there's a whole set of projects addressing it ... . Lycurgus (talk) 21:36, 25 August 2016 (UTC)

On the sogennante 'Fermi Paradox'

It's only a paradox because we are just at the point where we can ask the question, having only had language and what is called thinking, civilization, and science for successively shorter periods of time. Today there is still no human culture based on scientific values and only 1 known to me with any program to have such a basing. So in a way even asking the question is presumptuous, given the current state of cultural development of the questioner.

I think the most cogent analogy is to the so-called uncontacted peoples, a few of which remain. It's only approximate of course because no human population has ever had a comparable isolation but from the point of view of the posing of the question/paradox it's pretty direct.

Uncontacted peoples of today exist in the same human environment that, from the point of view of persons reading this text, is saturated with communications. These communications are all around them but they simply are not at a stage where they can access them and the larger human culture is finally at a stage where it will allow them to develop at their own pace, remain uncontacted, at least to the extent it can control itself in such things as habitat conservation.

There is surely a cosmic civilization which is possibly older than the solar system, certainly much older than the entire human lineage, and likely has had some interaction with it, is aware of the development of life in this system. The new details found on planet formation and thus the basis for intelligent life make this clear. For the same reasons that we do not contact the uncontacted peoples, including the ethical burdens such contacts would impose on the superior culture, we are not contacted by that civilization. We are probably still pretty uninteresting (or worse) at this point, except to developers, researchers, or tourists, so why would a cosmic culture vastly superior in every way, including morally risk an unforced contact with us?

Nothing stops us from developing to the point where we can, if you will, discover radio and stop listening for jungle drums or looking for smoke signals. A substantial advance in physics will be required to understand this of course (as opposed to just use it, here the analogy is to the masses in world culture that use semi-conductor based technology but are oblivious to the principles of quantum mechanics upon which it is based), but at least we have a physics, primitive peoples only have their religion.

Antireligion

77.101.218.119, should you make it here, I encourage you to make an account if you are going to edit the wiki as I did when I began to do so. After that you can still edit by ip but you will have recourse to something other than just that ip. I don't feel compelled to respond to your request but I will note (again) that thought/language are complex matters which you are completely free to work out for yourself, in whatever way and time you have. There are many ways to interpret the term "Antireligion", one of which is noted in en:Jiddu Krishnamurti whose rejection of a messianic cult in his name is an On This Day item today.

Should you decide to work the article, an interesting use of the term not currently noted in the article would be as a substantiation of what Krishnamurti noted and currently itemized as #3 in the Schools § of his article. This and the itemized logical program I gave in response to your complaint on the Antireligion talk page both refer to the possibility of a school or schools of thought which would be rightly called an "Antireligion". This connotation of the term is not currently in the Antireligion article and as a result of a number of factors probably never will be, but it is likely a more productive thing than your efforts in re "Antireligionists" which may be a non-starter in English as there are other terms already established. 98.4.124.117 (talk) 21:44, 3 August 2017 (UTC)
