The thing about socialism that transcends capitalism is use values--providing use values and making this the measure of success: nutrition, life expectancy, health outcomes, housing, etc.

Using these as metrics of success (along with general happiness) rather than abstract figures (GDP per capita [useless when inequality is high) related to exchange values.


@Catsandcatsandcats Capitalism knows the cost of everything and the value of Nothing!
