Piper: As opposed to what? A utopia in three volumes delivered on the front of a tank?

Mmmmmm... that's real subtle. Learn it from Chomsky (Skinner's a Nazi and all that?)

: I am fully aware of the consequences of removal of centralisation. The above is compatiable both with precapitalist production techniques (i have some familiarity with indigenous cultures and yes, i do think it a perfectly fine life) as it is with shall we say fully automised production techniques (i believe even marx said something along these lines).

Grundrisse quotes, anyone? Let's remember when Marx discarded the Grundrisse to write Capital volume one he REMOVED all the magic automation speculation...

: I meant the above to convey a statement of idea...

That's why I called it a utopia.

I knew you'd break your resolution soon enough. Now---how many posts will it take for you to reach Godwin's Law?
