: Obviously, craft-idiocy is preindustrial. And while the
social relations [ I mean MODE OF PRODUCTION ] of capitalist production has eroded much of this skill (division of labor in manufacture, machinery) for workers, capitalism champions the craft-idiocy ideal (through middle class professions, celebrities, and the highly-publicized like) as an ideology that promotes hierarchy. Which job rotation squarely attacks.
The point of the above is unchanged. Improved, actually. It is capitalism's tendency to explode specialized work that makes collectivized production (and with it, socialism) possible.
