People of NZ

From

Auckland alive as 20,000 empty investment properties while 40,000 don’t have homes. People go hungry while supermarkets lock the dumpsters full of unsold food.

Production of the things we need to survive is already done by workers – so workers should control their distribution and consumption. It’s that simple.

There is already enough of everything for everyone. Let’s let everyone have what they need.

No explanation of how it might work, except through the goodness of everyone and their willingness to share equally.

There’s nothing to stop Emmy (except perhaps for property and money) starting up a commune and putting their ideals into practice, proving them on a small scale before risking the whole country.

    So if Emmy builds a house everyone who doesn’t have one will be entitled to share it. So odds on Emmy won’t build that house.

    There endeth the lesson.

      I’m surprised that you wouldn’t know that under a Communist system, houses would be built and owned collectively, not individually. Actually, I’m not buying it at all: you know politics better than that. Communists are such an easy target for your lampooning as there are only a handful left in NZ.

    There’s nothing to stop them opening their own homes and sharing them. I could do this, as I have a spare bedroom, but I don’t want to. But I’m not telling other people who they can have in houses that they own, either.

    “It’s that simple” folks.

    If all those that don’t agree could get in an orderly line over by the guillotine, we can get started.

    They also lock the supermarket full of unsold food at closing time too! Shame on them!!

      “Production of the things we need to survive is already done by workers – so workers should control their distribution and consumption.”

      As long as workers also pay themselves their own wages and all the other costs associated with producing those ‘things’ & distributing them then I’m all for it!

        so back to the key question…where does ‘money’ come from and who gets to…allocate…it?

    I thinks she needs to understand the difference between workers doing the production versus owing the means of production.

    Workers cannot produce any production without someone (the state, workers collective, private enterprise, pension funds, mortgaged housing stock) owning the means of production. (plant and equipment, cash for raw materials, cash to pay wages whilst manufacturing the stock on hand, warehousing costs, distribution costs, moneys to keep production going whilst waiting 30 days for the sales made to be paid for, etc.)

    Emmy sounds like an indoctrinated 4th former.

      Actually, having a look at that twitter account Emmy sounds like she needs a decent sleep.

    there is of course no good reason why one person shouldn’t own 50 homes and keep them empty if they want,just because thousands of people have no where to…. live.

      You are most likely to be describing Housing Corp, B.
