WORK takes more out of you than you out of it. You can purchase numerous commodities, but you can't ever buy back the hours of your life sold to capital. Whether you get paid in grades for your academic piecework or wages for facilitating, commodity, consumption, work is everywhere an alienation of your capacity to determine your own life.

Creative, self-managed work is a source of pride and joy and part of what it means to be fully human. Wrenching control of work from the hands of the worker profoundly harms his or her mental and physical health.

Capitalism is, by its very nature, hierarchical. The worker is subjected to the authority of the boss during working hours (sometimes outside work too). This hierarchical control of wage labor has the effect of alienating workers from their own work, and so from themselves. Workers no longer govern themselves during work hours and so are no longer free.

That which we call capitalism is not something else but a product of the State, within which the only thing that is being pushed forward is profit, good or badly acquired. And so to fight against capitalism is a pointless task, since be it State capitalism or Enterprise capitalism, as long as Government exists, exploiting capital will exist. The fight is against the State.

Also know that from the start, bosses spent considerable time and energy combating attempts of working people to join together to resist the hierarchy they were subjected to and reassert human values.

The most effective way to bring down states and effect change is to create better alternatives that make its oppressive predecessor obsolete. If we want to have any hope of bringing down this system and all of its nasty isms, we need to get to work making better structures, better institutions and better communities based on equality, respect and liberty. It’s time to embrace D.I.Y. ethics, the anarchist ideology and work towards a better world!!!
