Yep. People like to diss on marxism but history is often revised and rewritten, let it be known that what people call “marxism” is nothing like marx’s original plans or vision at all.
As for zero consequences corporations are just too narcissistic to see whats in front of their eyes. Selfishness is not selfish which I will explain in another thread, selfishness usually backfires and ends up not being beneficial but that’s a separate topic altogether.
As we can see the rich’s attempt to suffocate and stifle the progress of the poor is anti-social and non-sensical. Its equivalent to the nonsense of the theory that somehow when most people are too poor to afford products that the economy will still go on.
If there are only 2 people in the world then money has no value. Similarly if everyone is poor then noone can buy goods and services. If the rich want to suffocate the poor then its like they are standing on air. It is commonly known if you stand on air you will fall down. If poor are too poor to afford buying products and services then there is no profits to be made. A selfish mindset that tries to always keep the competition and society down means there is no society, no society means no profits to be made. The seflish mindset of trying to keep the poor down is thus nonsensical and anti-social.
