Coronavirus: towards emancipation at work ... and at money?

Unread Messageby Christophe » 24/03/20, 19:37

Good sorry, we are still in the midst of a health crisis, it is probably a bit premature to launch this "post coronavirus" debate, but I am going anyway! You know that I am a bacon head! : Cheesy:

Everything is in the title: resuming work during the post coronavirus may be difficult for some ... psychologically and morally ... Can the coronavirus crisis be the psychological trigger for the end of enslavement at work ... and at home? 'money ?

What Marx already dreamed of at the time: https://www.cairn.info/revue-du-mauss-2 ... e-151.htm#

The term utopia can be taken in the broad sense to describe the different forms in which the hope of a better world is expressed, from the partially indeterminate wish to the waking dream. It can also be understood in a narrower sense when it designates descriptions of the ideal world which can serve as an instrument to make the really existing world better. Any popular policy worthy of the name should aim to give a theoretical expression to the hope of a better, more just and free world, which emerges from the social experiences of subordinate groups, a theoretical expression in the form of useful ideals. to their self-empowerment. Is it not in this sense that the workers' movement has given a central place to the utopia of the emancipation of work? Owen, Fourier, Saint-Simon and Marx, beyond their differences, all sought to give a theoretical and political expression to the aim of a world where one would work not only less but also more freely and in a way more satisfactory. It is on this point that the distance with contemporary versions of anti-capitalism is greatest. Indeed, attempts to renew the utopian content of a socialist or communist project generally put aside the question of work. They tend to think of justice and emancipation either independently of work, or away from work, or against work. And yet, even today, the wish to be able to work differently, in conditions which are not those of the experience of injustice and domination, nourishes the hope of a better world - a wish awaiting theoretical and political translations.


It's my Martzist side, but I think more and more that a significant part of current jobs is useless ... these jobs serve humanity more than they serve it ...

To meditate, the debate is launched! : Cheesy:

The uselessness of many jobs can be appreciated in various ways. One of the simplest consists in noting the insistence which is placed on the need to "create" jobs, without any mention being made of their content: it is therefore that their usefulness lies only in their simple existence and not in any function. It is that work is the basis of this very particular society which is ours and which "at the same time" that it rests on this principle, denies it by its systematic destruction, under the name of increase in productivity. Both social necessity and practical impossibility, this concept is doomed to the great gap as well as cognitive dissonance ...
As for the financing of these unproductive activities (even if they concern so-called productive sectors), they are due to the financial industries and QE ...

I would add that this is a revealing reversal of meaning: useful jobs do not properly have to be created, since they impose themselves.

"I find," I told her, "that we are in the midst of hysteria with regard to covid-19 and that, in my humble opinion, this hides something. On the other hand, I don't know (yet) what."
