let's talk about the stonks market(s) and possible depression πŸ’ΈπŸ’²πŸ“‰πŸ˜¬

Think I’ve made this point in this thread before, or one related to it, but the fact that the world is becoming so abstracted is really problematic. I know it’s an old-school Marx thing to be concerned about alienation from the fruits of your labours etc, but the more intangible things become monetised and commodified, and the more incomprehensible the workings of markets and the flow of capital become, the more disenfranchised your average person gets. Each step like this is another step in the consolidation of capital in the hands of the owners of the means of production (also it’s wicked confusing)

Moon month

Today it became possible to sell the DOTA 2 skins that came out in the last event on Steam marketplace. I’m betting right now that I’ll make more money off selling a couple of pretend wizard hat pixels this month than I’ll make on GME.
