the comment on the Slog from Ross yesterday is spot on. The rest of the post is an old draft, demonstrating the principle of same shit different day, decade, date?
There are, mercifully, in many areas of ‘normal’ life, opportunities to not engage with the corporations/AI bots and deal directly with small businesses with humans at the end of the phone/email”
Spot on, throw in local currencies and get wealth creation and money circulation back into the limbs of our communities.

Introduction to Technocracy – 1933
discussions — of ‘value,’ of fluctuating prices, of the gold standard, of changing interest rates, of items of pecuniary wealth which are at the same time items of debt — are
merely discussions looking toward a readjustment of the factors which prevent them
The problem of analysing political choices against the metric of a Monetary measure is the Money as a Thing is most certainly a Variable and as any good technologist, scientist or metrologist will tell you a unit of measurement has to be clearly defined and fixed.
The dollar. He notes that it is a variable. Why anyone should attempt, on this earth, to use a
variable as a measuring rod is so utterly absurd that he dismisses any serious
consideration of its use in his study of what should be done.
He also considers ‘price’ and ‘value’ and the fine- spun theories of philosophers and
economists who have attempted to surround these terms with the semblance of meaning.
These terms, like the monetary unit, may have had meaning to men in the past but they
mean nothing whatsoever to the modern technologist. The standard of measurement is
not relevant to the things measured; and the measuring rod and the things, measured as if
they were stable, are all variables.
