: In my opinion, the lesson to be learned by capital's internal logic of development is that centralization (and with it automation, rationalization, etc.) itself is the most valuable quality that capital offers FOR the socialist future.

SO, from what I gather, you advocate the centralization of the shoe making industry so that it can be more efficient and thus sell shoes for less.

: Of course, if your living comes from petty proprietorship, then capital's inexorable drive toward centralization (one capitalist kills many) will seem like a very destructive force, not a progressive one at all...

However, for a socialist, one must look at something as being progressive for society or not progressive at all, no?
