Contra a metafísica da escassez, copiosidade prática - humanaesfera

Uma resposta à seguinte objeção: "A abundância (superação da escassez) é impossível, uma vez que vivemos em um universo com recursos limitados, não só econômica mas fisicamente; portanto superar a escassez é uma exigência metafísica, absurda, que necessitaria uma automatização total do universo infinito para entregar à cada indivíduo, elevado ao status de um deus, a realização de seus menores caprichos e arbitrariedades."

Propriedade privada, escassez e democracia - humanaesfera

Artigo originalmente escrito como resposta aos "libertários" que veem a escassez como uma consagração natural, objetiva e eterna da propriedade privada e do mercado.

Against the metaphysics of scarcity, for the practical copiousness - humanaesfera

A reply to the following objection: "The abundance (overcoming scarcity) is impossible since we live in a world with limited resources, not only economically, but physically, so overcoming scarcity is a metaphysical, absurd demand, which requires a complete automation of the infinite universe to deliver to each individual, raised to the status of a god, every whim and arbitrariness."

Private property, scarcity and democracy - humanaesfera

This article was originally written as a response to "libertarians" who see scarcity as a natural, objective and eternal consecration of private property and the market.
