>>4138>why do you think those laws are there in the first place?
Because government is not 100% on the side of industry as you claim.
>the """bribe""" can't even fucking keep up with inflation
Inflation is how they pay for the brides. Keynesian economics is not a perpetual motion machine it is a snake eating its own tail.>>4139>And this was the case for a long time until capital was forced to concede basic rights to workers in the face of massive unrest.
What specific timeline are you implying exists here?
>However due to the collective power of workers channelled through organised labour, it is impossible to strip workers of their basic rights.
Except it's the government that gave you these "rights" and many things happened to restructure the nature of government in the 20th century including universal suffrage, bretton woods and the cold war.
Or if you want to look at it another way, tell me what happens when workers go on strike in china or russia? Does the economy grind to a halt until the porkies concede "basic rights" or does something else happen?
>Well who do they represent in your mind?
In your model of the world there is the working class who create value through labor and the capitalist class who exploit that labor to turn a profit. But there is also a class of people who use violence to steal resources from workers and capitalists (the political class). And there is a class of people who print the fake money we use and "invest" it with no labor or capital involved (the banking class).
By focusing only on workers vs capitalists or pretending that everyone who is not a worker are all on the same side is causing you to miss large parts of the puzzle.
