So from what I can gather you don’t like anything. I thought you might be a socialist/communist but I think you may be more of an anarchist.
im very skeptical of power. ive naturally had a problem with authority my whole life.

in chomskys "on anarchism" he says most anarchists would call themselves socialists, but many socialists would not call themselves anarchists

Milk
$3.89 used to be 2.49
OJ
$5.29 used to be 2.99
Twinkies
$1.99 used to be .99
Eggs
$4.99 used to be 1.99
Apples
$2.99 used to be .99
Bacon
$8.99 used to be 3.99
Frozen Pizza
$8.99 used to be 3.99
Bread
$4.99 used to be 1.99

all the used to be prices were just 6 months ago or so.

this is just a small example from our local Save Mart today
Costco is not much better.

They are talking another increase on social security of 8.9%. That helps but not very much. At this rate I will be making more on SS than my pension in a couple years. Fortunately we can live on pension alone. I put most of the SS in a Vanguard S&P 500 Index fund to stay ahead of inflation.

You can't buy produce at Costco unless you eat it all in a couple days. It goes bad fast.
The gas is $4.89 there .

Slavery and capitalism aren't synonymous.
no but many workers called themselves wage slaves under capitalism, but thats besides the point.

they are systems, like a govt owned and controlled job would be a system. just like the things i listed are systems.

doesnt really matter anyways, you can be in favor of worker self determination and say down with capitalism, even if u falsely think its the same system which its not.

They aren't economic systems like capitalism, communism, socialism, fascism, mercantilism, colonialism. And wage slaves? No one holds a gun to their heads and makes them buy on credit. No matter how much you make you can enslave yourself to debt. But that's the choice you made. Poor people with cars, big screen tvs, cellphones aren't poor to much of the world.

capitalism is sortve a choice, however if workers decided to seize the means of production, there would be bloodshed by the capitalist class. that is not a choice.
