this is the PRIMARY LIE of capitalism
if scarcity didn’t exist, if everyone could have all their basic needs fulfilled, then capitalism would have no ground to stand on.
the only reason capitalism stands on the ground it does is because it tricks you into believing that there is not enough for everyone.
if this is so true, why are the grocery stores filled with items that regularly go unsold? why do we have sectors of the economy dedicated to selling you transportation or housing?
if there were truly no scarcity, if it were eliminated outright, it wouldn’t happen under a capitalist system, because the capitalist system has a vested interest in keeping its power over you by holding the threat of scarcity over your head. for everything.
