As a researcher I can confirm that almost every beneficial innovation you can think of was built using public funding and collaborative work

This right here... People need to understand, they fund innovation and capitalism, sells it back to them.

it discourages innovation. planned obsolescence. monopolies. cutting corners until regulated. profit motive is deadly.

it should be obvious but I guess not. I'm not sure why people think everybody in society wants to innovate for capitalism instead of being rich.

imagine the innovation we would have if everyone's basic needs were taken care of and they had leisure time to create whatever they want 🥰

an example of capitalism actually getting in the way of innovation: Kodak shut down a digital camera project to protect their film sales in the 80s

war gave us more tech advances than capitalism ever could, so much in WW2 alone. not saying that's a good thing but capitalism stinks

Gotta disagree. People innovate new ways to make profit. Some bad some good. We will never be able to centrally plan for all contingencies.

we've been innovating for 200,000+ years, we do that without capitalism. we don't need to plan in infinite detail, that's just a thought experiment
