When people ask "so your anarchist society, why would people work? How could they get anything done without a boss? How can big things like healthcare get done?", tell them that people will work because they want to contribute, that people already are self managing, that doctors and nurses already volunteer all the time because their passion is helping people. A person who wants to become a doctor can do so without having the massive debt to go to school, without having to pay insane rates for malpractice insurance coverage. By removing the the profit motive we can train more doctors so doctors won't be overwhelmed with patients, they won't have to deal with insurance companies or state regulators, they can focus on their patients, and do what they love most, helping people.

I was having a lil conversation with one of my Native Brothers about diet and the topic went towards how capitalism/consumerism are so entertwined with our lives that it can be difficult to exist without causing suffering somewhere. Ive heard before "how will not buying this one shirt make a difference?" It is unfortunate that in our society money equates to power but it is a fact. People ask "how can I effect the bottom line of a multi-billion dollar corporation?" You do this with your purchase or non-purchase (transference of power) of an item. Simple as that, yes it is! And by choosing consciously/ethically you then add yourself to the already growing number of people holding that space for change. It's a numbers game and it does add up. Doing this is decolonizing the corporate structure of this country and a current necessity if we want to break this toxic cycle of consumerism and control. When you choose to take your money (power) away from corporations their ability to lobby for their corporate interests, which rarely consider the actual people they effect and thus becomes more difficult for them to maneuver as a corporation. When you place your money (power) within the community you are giving those merchants and service people a voice and an opportunity to be a thriving part of a healthy marketplace. You are giving them power. Please take a moment and think about your next purchase..Do I really need it? What will it do for my life? Where does it come from and what are the labor policies of that country? Are there any recorded incidents of abuse within this brand/manufacturer? What is the environmental impact that purchasing this item would support? Do this with every purchase and you can be sure you will see a change in what you feel you 'need' as well as an acute necessity to make your money (power)/each transaction effective in working towards the betterment of our society with a focus on ending suffering and the control corporations in our society have and the role that it playes in our lives.
This was a weird one. I probably should have been clearer about how the term and use of the ‘dialectic’ emerged through philosophy, but like many other ‘inventions’ of philosophy has moved beyond the merely philosophical
