the more I learn about left wing ideologies the more it seems like it's not about taking away muh freedumbs and being perpetually offended at everything but rather about creating a fair balance of power in society. Is this true? Am I on the right track here? I'm sure this sounds silly but I grew up in a right-leaning environment and all I've ever been taught is "socialism bad. capitalism good".

Wow. Imagine… reading. Turns out that you find out about others' opinions by actually reading their opinions, who would have known?
>rather about creating a fair balance of power in society. Is this true?
That… sounds kinda class collaborationist actually. This "fair balance of power" is actually a pretty vague notion, it's more like leftists want to get rid of wage labor altogether, destroying the class system (with anarchists going further and destroying the state apparatus itself as an inherent part of a class society). Unless we talk about socdems. In that case, yeah, pretty much what you said.

I understand you, I was an ancap myself before moving to egoist anarchism. I'm researching on Marxism rn, the Marxist analysis is pretty decent I must say but Marx's critique of Stirner is just childish.

I don't why people claimed the US inspired the Holocaust when Europe has a long history of antisemitism. Just look at the pogroms committed during the chaos of the Russian revolution.

>which reminds me of keynesian economics, where spending is seen as a productive activity (which is contradictory to the norms of neoclassical economics, which is based on saving and investment.)
Saving and investment are only productive insofar as they obfuscate spending and production. The reason why you earn interest on money in the bank is because the bank is making loans with everyone's money, collecting interest on the loans, and paying some of that into account holders. The reason why you earn dividends on stock is because of the production happening at the company the stock is for.
>If the value created by internet browsing supersedes the salaries of content creators then you create profits as surplus value.
Content creators by and large don't get paid much of anything, especially not salaries. Similarly to the users, the ratio between cost (in terms of labor) to payment is in most cases extremely low. Typically the model for generating income as a content creator primarily comes from outside the platform though things like Patreon or sponsorships. As far as the data production for the platform is concerned, the content creators are frequently doing it for free (or close to free) like the users.

The downside to all this form the platforms' perspective is that operating costs tend to be extremely high, and the data they produce (along with other revenue) is typically not enough to cover the costs, let alone turn an actual profit. These companies are largely operating on the Silicon Valley grift economy where they are buoyed by investor hype and trading the stock. They are for the most part in a zone of "theoretically profitable one day," while at the same time being very important as society's communication systems. In general, the trend in capitalism is for the rate of profit to go down with time… For companies like these which are already in the negative (or close to it), they can't be expected to become more profitable in the long run (at least not without some kind of fundamental change). The most reasonable direction to take these systems would be along the lines of nationalization, simply paying for them at-cost out of public funds/social surplus. This is part of why I think they have potential to develop different relations of production (i.e. a distPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

>You are only looking at it as a means of delivering better advertising. If that were the limit of the data, then you would be right that it doesn't create value. In practice, however, there is use-value for the ruling class in having data-driven models of human behavior beyond simply advertising.
I guess thats true.

>Capitalism is perfectly capable of producing value by selling commodities from one company to another.

Sure but the sale of capital product or raw resources to another company do directly get used in further value production. Its just a suply chain chopped up. Selling accountancy services to another company or secrurity to a company doesnt create value even if profit is made on one end from the transaction.
The production of the truck is, in the end, value, because the truck is directly used in producing more value.

>The value created is just the value realized when sold minus the cost of producing it.

When marx talks about productive labour he talks system-wide. So a security guard isnt value producing, even if the security firm hires people and buys uniforms, maglights, batteries, to produce commodities (the service of security), it is bought by the using company not to increase or produce value but to offset other losses. It isnt as simple as "anything that is a profitable transaction for any company creates value".

But again, in the end it doesnt really matter. It is only usefull as a tool to try to understand where in society value is actually produced and where it is shuffled around or used to offset damages. It has no real implications for organizing.

If we map views for dollars though (lets say 1000 views = 1 dollar paid out to a content creator) then there is still a mechanism for determining income, and if the creators (who act as freelance workers, or precariat) are paid according to this then surely its still creating surplus value for the platform.

 No.499603

>>499567
Whats productive is whats paid out
Since value = money in basic terms
Thats why i make my allusion to keynesian economics, where many people are given "free money" to circulate value efficiently
This is why, to extend marx's meaning, unproductive labour is not paid - where "unpaid labour" might be a separate category applying to exploitation, like working after hours or housework.

Not to be confused with the Sex and Relationship General.

This thread is for people who are in relationships and/or are having sexo and want to discuss either topic. People who are neither in a relationship nor have sexo at least once a year may also post but only to seek advice to overcome their deficiency.

Incel posting, black pill posting and "wait for the revolution instead of working on yourself" posting are not permitted and I ask the jannies to remove such posts to keep discussions productive.
