: My position has always been that once all labor in society is rotated (as the famous passages in The German Ideology state), then people will voluntarily reconsider how they consume. For example, would you continue to advocate fast food joints (operated as they presently are) if you were required to spend, say, a sixth of your working hours in such a job?

Who would be requiring me to do so, and what would be their means of enforcing the 'requirement'?

: Multiply your decision by everyone else's and---presto!---you have something that fairly resembles a social democracy.

Or a fascist disctorship, depending upon answers to the above.
