Truth To Power wrote:You admitted that, "Chattel slavery is a type of slavery." That means there is at least one type of slavery that is not chattel slavery.
Correct. There are other forms of slavery.
That means slavery does NOT mean ONLY ownership of human beings as chattels.
The definition of slavery is the ownership of humans - When a human is owned by another human. There are different manners of how a human is owned. There are different ways to own a human. Chattel slavery is one way. There are other ways as well.
Yes, I did.
Capitalists may respect clear and honest communication more than socialists,
Capitalists respect capitalist definitions more than real conscious definitions because real conscious definitions are a threat to their false consciousness - Their manipulated motives to work such as money, Family oriented environment that conditions children to believe that they need a family oriented environment to motivate them to work, or that "Money Buys Love." These are false conscious capitalist definitions.
Socialists use real conscious terms, unlike capitalists.
but that doesn't make dictionaries "capitalist."
You are using capitalist dictionaries and definitions.
False. Production is still immutably a private act. It is always an individual human person who performs a given act of labor.
There is a difference between private acts, and Personal
acts. Socially, Individual humans are personal. Economically,
humans can either be private (slavery, capitalism, feudalism, fascism) or public, free from money, family, patriarchy, and social hierarchy (socialism).
The product of an individual's labor may be socialized,
They can also be exploited by capitalists.
but the act of production is always immutably private.
Personal. You are using economic terms (private versus public) onto social terms (personal).
The traditional system of village commons, for example, allocated access to land without private ownership of it.
This was before the globalist, Zionist, capitalist occupants that funded the exploiting state of Israel. When global capitalism emerged to assist on providing labour services to Israel, all lands, used or not, were charged, and that globalist money funded the Zionist state of Israel.
The traditional system of village commons was destroyed by globalist, capitalist Zionists so the Zionists could have a way on exploiting economics of non Zionist territories.
False, as proved above. You are just trying to push a false dichotomy fallacy: capitalism vs socialism. Capitalists and socialists both pretend that the other is the only alternative because they are united in their hatred of the real alternative: justice.
Your ideology has hatred to justice.
We are always reliant on wages: if not our own, then others'.
Before capitalism, in economic systems such as feudalism or mercantilism, slaves and peasants were not reliant on wages. Wages did not exist before capitalism. Capitalism invented wages. Wage Slavery
is a type of slavery
in which the workers are owned by their wages.
In socialism, wages do not exist because private labour does not exist, wage slavery does not exist in socialism, and currency does not exist. Wages cannot exist unless if there is a currency.
The socialist just wants to rely on others' wages rather than earn his own.
Some socialists want to do this in a wage driven capitalist economy because they cannot make more wages due to capitalist economic disadvantages such as over inflated housing, utilities, or various rents.
That's why socialists always focus on income tax
Income tax does not exist in socialism because incomes and taxes do not exist in socialism because there is no currency. Currency is taxed. Incomes define the amount of currency that one is paid. These things do not exist in socialism because in socialism, there is no currency.
and oppose a just and efficient public revenue system that leaves privately created value in the hands of those who create it
This enforces the family institution, patriarchal marriages, and the social connections that people have. Under capitalism, peoples' social connections are determined by their economies.
Sweden is not socialist,
Correct, Sweden is not socialist. However, scientifically Sweden is closer to socialism than the United States. The United States is far more capitalistic than Sweden - Economically, culturally (Americans are materialistic and are obsessed with money), and politically (Americans support unstable "Laissez-faire" economics).
and workers everywhere desire to consume, which is the ultimate purpose of all economic activity.
Humans will desire or need material or wealth regardless of the economy. Czechoslovakia had a higher standard of living than Francoist Spain. The DDR had a higher standard of living than Greece. Humans will need to work in order to survive, unless if there are robots than can fully do all human capabilities.
The "ultimate purpose of all economic activity" is determined by the type of economy. In capitalism, the ultimate purpose is to make everything to be sold. Not because it is needed. Everything is profit driven. In capitalism, elitists promote a consumerist culture to manipulate the masses into buying more stuff so the elitists can make more money.
In socialism, the ultimate purpose of all "economic" activity is to make whatever humans desire or need. Nothing is made to be sold. Nothing is made for profit. Sold and profit does not exist in socialism because there are no elitist exploitation and that profit motives are not necessary since a socialist population has real consciousness and that people with real consciousness do not need profit driven economics to motivate them to work.
Because socialism denies the legitimate property rights of those who provide producer goods to the production process,
In socialism, those who produce, have access to production. Those who make it, get it.
In capitalism, those who own have access to production. This is why elitist owners have a lot of wealth. A corporate executive scientifically, does not have the physical ability to produce all of the wealth they have access to from their enterprise they own. They do not work for that money. They sell for that money. In capitalism, you need money to make more money. That is how elitists get rich. Under capitalism, those who provide producer goods - The producers; Workers, only get paid for what they need to survive. The rest of the wealth that they produce goes to their elitist owner.
it is inferior even to capitalism in satisfying the workers' desire to consume.
Having a lot of wealth to consume does not ensure true happiness.
