Remember, the Capitalists will sell you the rope you use to hang yourself. We’re Communists, we’ll give it to you for free.
One of the good things about capitalism is that it’s blind to what it sells. It’s willing to sell anything. The system isn’t really the enemy. It’s blind, all it wants is to replicate and do more things.
One of the more distracting things about capitalist culture is that there is no stupor, no time to vegetate. What I would suggest is more time wasting, less stimulation. We need time to lie fallow like we did in childhood, so we can recuperate. Rather than be constantly told what you want and be pressurised to go after it, I think we would benefit greatly from vaguely restless boredom in which desire can crystallise.
