How do young people even move out of their parents now? I'm nearly 18 years old with zero plans to go to college and I don't have my driver's license. I live in California so rent will cost an arm and a leg. My dad bought a house in this hellhole and he's expecting me to work and help him pay the mortgage if I want to live to live here. I don't want to live in this hot as fuck place, if you know California as it is now it's getting hotter every year and the fires get worse and worse. What I really want is a place to start fresh in another state, but rent is going to be costly as fuck in every city in this country.

You probably don't leave your suburb or collective house in a gentrifying neighborhood, and your 'concern for worldly affairs' is a fake and ghey overcompensation to soothe your moral anxiety.

tbh this is the black ad white petulance logic alot of adults have concerning kids.


They think kids dont deserve mutual respect nor autonomy.

They complain aboutkids "leecging off their psrents" (aka having fun without having to work).
But they forget that kids dont have any legal rights. They cannot buy anything for themselves or negotiate contracts for themselves.


They are not allowed to go anywhere by themselves except school.

Imo, childhood is incarceration.

By right, adulthood begins at ouberty but our dumbass Victorian forefathers thought that childhood needs to last as long as your youth.

true that.

Alot of office jobs have the same toxic dynamics as middle/high school sociology.


As a kid, alot of childrens shows only shown office jobs as the default of adulthood amd that triggered some existential anxiety.

My prepubescent hunch about adult dynamics based on cartoonish portrayal of office jobs are somewhat validated years later.

At least with blue collar work, your work has practical effects on the real world.

You can survive on such work.

Office jobs are just pushing pencils amd throwing around papers to feel busy and having to dress formally all the time and dealing with unwanted romantic effects.

anyone kno what is the easiest trade to learn? The trades are pretty memed up and watched some videos on how elevator technicians make bank. proceed to look up to profession's reqs and theres a news headline along the lines of "glut of elevator technicians leaves many seeking alternate employment". the only trade that i could think that isnt gonna physically wear you down is trucking, is there anything near that? i hate driving with amerigip fuckwits and have been at least five accidents i can think off the bat(3 rearends/2 sideswipes/havent driven in 2yrs), i can think of off the bat.

>Maybe in absolute terms more energy and complexity is emerging but relative to the amount of wealth being created complexity and energy use are dramatically going down.
Societies that deploy more complex technology use more energy without exception.
Measuring how much total energy was embodied in a commodity (assuming that is what you mean with wealth) is almost impossible in a capitalist economy, because capitalist economics doesn't record externalized costs.

> With AI a single worker will be able to run an entire factory floor, it will unironically be like "The Jetsons".

That means increasing the amount of capital-stock, You need the regular factory production machines plus the AI tools.
The rate of profit goes down if Capital-stock increases proportionally to the population size.
Capitalism is not tending towards the Jetsons scenario. The capitalists are not investing in technology driven labor productivity increases anymore. It has completely stagnated for over a decade. (see graph)

Honestly, bring on the AI automated revolution, it's what is going to lead most likely to the collapse of Capitalism as Westoid politicians won't even do the bare minium to help people like Basic Income.
I've already on my home computer, tested out using AI voice and Chat GPT to automate my job (call support) and it literally works, honestly better than I do my job, if was allowed to do work from home, I could literally just make my computer do my job for me while I shitposted on the internet.

Every advance in real living standards has been brought on by technological innovation, but in capitalism this is not so straightforward. Capitalism creates contradictory situations where progress coincides with immiseration. A UBI will not solve this basic tendency, one only has to look at the effect it will have on real wages. The eventual outcome of such contradictions is always destruction of capital, human and otherwise.
Capitalism will not collapse without politics. Yes, rapid automation will likely push capitalism into crisis. But every prominent communist has triumphantly pointed out moments when capitalism is in severe crisis, in its "last stage", at its most "rotten and decayed", et cetera. All this ever lead to was a violent reassertion of capital's power. Without the political will to seize power at such moments, crisis is merely the cocoon from which capitalism is reborn, stronger than ever.
