– The paramount importance of all maintenance work: transport, logistics, cleaning, health work, etc.
– The radical uselessness of financiers, consultants & vultures
– The absolute centrality of informal/family/support networks

The pro-capitalism argument of ‘look at these things that it has achieved’ is based on the assumption that these things couldn’t have been achieved under any other system.
