I am a poor student of electrical engineering from a poor family of a locksmith/plumber and supermarket worker. I worked at bakeries, supermarkets, car wash and cleaning jobs. I didnt read all of the leftist works but I read a few major ones, and basically here is how I understand it generally:
At some point in the future, our production is going to become greater than our needs. I think Marx was the one who mentioned exactly this, productive forces, I think he called them this, are going to eclipse the needs at one point where there will be enough for everyone, and we can then finally get rid of money and class as concepts.
And here is where the title of the thread kicks in.
Working with other working class people, I have developed a class disgust. If these people somehow truly seized control and managed these jobs where I worked so far, things would go to hell.
Allow me to elaborate. People who do not study technology intimately (as in doing equations and testing their understanding and measuring and comparing results) think that there are some immortal wizards somewhere who 'do technology', and this is why it constantly increases. This is my main problem with leftism (that is based on the working class). Leftist utopia happens because of increased productive force, and productive forces magically increase just because. But this doesnt happen just because, in fact the opposite is true, entropy is the rule, flames go out, things rust, decompose, break down, etc. Barbarians who lived in the dark ages probably thought Roman ruins were built by gods or something.
If the working class (that I have met so far) seized the workplace, it would go to hell because most of them swear, come to work boozed up/high, is generally stupid, unclean, lazy and so on, basically the working class is not what drives the productive forces up.
Neither are bosses, dont get me wrong, I hate the bosses, I worked with this insanely cute chick at the supermarket, we shared a shift for 8 hours, she was the meaning of my life, life was joy, we hit it off pretty well, I found out the boss was fondling her, and he fired her after she told him to fuck off, he made a story she was stealing from the place and now she cant get a job in any other market, exploitation is definitely happening, I was full of rage with a gun and gasoline one day in front of his house, found out he had kids that day, so I wrote a letter to his wife instead, bastard lost his kids in a divorce.
Anyway enough of that. Basically, most of the working class and also most of the bosses are both scum. Both classes in my opinion either have no effect or have negative effect on the productive force of society.
This brings me to my final conclusion: I think there is a third class, class of technologically literate people who basically contribute vastly to the productive forces of society. The engineers mostly, but also mathematicians, physicists, you know, the whole crew that makes the lightbulb shine when you press the button, or makes the clean water show up. And these guys have no problem with the profit motive, they do well in the market, in the private sector, in all the countries, in all politics, languages, their skills are useful to all parties.
Most of the bosses are muh privileged oppressive net negatives on the productive force, tho some are generally productive and smart and not oppressing anyone. Working class and manual labor are not holy, even tho some are oppressed and chained by society, you cant deny some are plain fucking retarded, lazy, unproductive and dont deserve even what they have already. Things get done thanks to mechanization these days, and majority of working class is overrated by the left.
Resources are physically limited as of now; it is impossible to upbring everyone. Right wing knows this, but they want to get rid of too many people, and they are led by superstition. The left (that I am familiar with) wants to feed a thousand people with one bread and compassion, but we cant eat compassion.
I think there needs to be a new movement, a movement that can actually increase the productive force. Small percent of society is a large percent of productive force. Engineers and hard scientists are dominating all of the labor done, and business world too. Mechanization and hard science (the one with mathematics in it) seem to contribute 99% of the production, but they do not receive 99% of the resources, nor are they 99% of the lawmakers/political leaders.
