Hippie Unicornists

Who’s going to build the cottages?
Who’s going to harvest the materials for the cottages?
Who’s going to manufacture the tools necessary to harvest those materials?
Who’s going to harvest the materials necessary to make the tools necessary to harvest the materials for the cottages?
Who’s going to transport the materials for the cottages from where those materials are harvested?
Who’s going to manufacture the form of transportation needed to ship the materials for the cottages?
Who’s going to manufacture the parts necessary to manufacture the transportation necessary to ship the materials for the cottages?
Who’s going to harvest the materials necessary to manufacture the parts necessary to manufacture the transportation necessary to ship the materials necessary to build the cottages?

On and on and on…. Just the cottages alone could require a whole book to asking “Who’s going to do X” over and over and over again.

Then a second book to ask how you are going to create this music….

Then I have to point out: you’re either using slavery or all of these people involved: have to be paid in exchange for them agreeing to do work for you.

Know what happens then? You haven’t re-done society: it’s exactly the way it is. With a vast array of lower classes performing menial, often dangerous, physical labor, followed by a middle class doing production supporting an elite class at the very top who benefit from everyone else’s work. Which is precisely what this image is complaining about.

We do not star trek replicators yet: nothing is free. everything requires work: and someone is going to have to do that work in order to produce anything.

Nails. Just nails – for nailing wood planks together to create a cottage. Just the nails, nothing else – just the nails.

To create that one category of item. just that. A group of people far away mined iron ore. A group of people loaded that ore, eventually, onto a fleet of trucks. People drove those trucks to ports. A group of people unloaded those trucks on tanker ships. A group of people manned and operated those ships somewhere else.

A group of people unloaded those ships onto trucks. A group of people drove those fleets of trucks to steel mills. Where a group of people melded down that iron ore and some of it was used to make nails. A group of people then packaged up those nails for shipping. A group of people loaded those nails onto a fleet of trucks. A group of people drove those trucks, likely to warehouses.

A group of people unloaded those trucks and stored the nails in large shipment lots inside warehouses. A group of people receiving orders and keeping track of inventory got the order for those nails. A group of people then took that shipment of nails out of it’s place in the warehouse and loaded it onto a truck, headed for a specific destination. A person drove that truck to that specific destination, an outlet store such as lowes or menards or home depot.

A group of people unloaded that truck into their back room. A group of people then broke down that load and re-stocked their inventory on the sales floor. Where it can be picked up by a consumer: and the nails will be scanned for purchase by another person at the check out line.

That’s – just – nails. Not any of that other technology; which was largely manufactured and brought into existence in the exact same way. Just the nails.

People who have absolutely 0 idea about how the world functions or how goods arrive on the shelves from which they purchase: have no business making proposals about re-designing society.
