@sifr A true capitalist would've never given up two crates!
@esureL two possible explanations, not necessarily exclusive:
1. the capitalist was too cheap to shell out for any more crates than he himself felt he personally needed
2. there are 15 discarded or broken crates offscreen
@sifr indeed. Better yet https://static.diffen.com/uploadz/3/37/Equality-equity-justice-lores.png
@sifr Of it's so true. The capitalistic environment ends up having less (boxes in total)
@sifr This is well wrought.
@sifr My favorite variation on this removes the fence.
@Kye yes! someone has just linked me that
@sifr @turtlebirb The original was about systemic oppression, the resulting class divides, and the different ways the main political factions in the US deal with it. https://medium.com/@CRA1G/the-evolution-of-an-accidental-meme-ddc4e139e0e4
Right, so disability:
Think of the barrier as equivalent to the irreducible degree of labour that is necessary for all human beings to reproduce their existence. Even if we imagine a society outside of capitalism, you still need to procure food, get around, socialize, etc. Most people get over it just fine, like the adult in this illustration. But that barrier will be higher in some places for people with disabilities, and there is usually some part of that barrier that you are unable to get over without accommodation. Accommodation does not remove the barrier, no more than a wheelchair gives someone their legs back or my medication cures my mental illness. It makes the barrier navigable. Pretending such a barrier does not exist or that it can be "removed" as such rather than accommodated is as much a lie as the idea of equality in this picture.
The barrier is important to me because it represents effort, the increased effort that comes inherently with having a disability. You can make barriers smaller by changing the structures and expectations of society and the built environment, but they won't ever go away entirely. There will always be a barrier somewhere for folks with disabilities that you won't be able to knock down. When it comes to that, just give them the boxes they need.
@turtlebirb yeah, got your point, if you interpret it like this I do agree
@sifr Since when was capitalism benefitting PoC?
I pointed this out on a facebook post but equity and equality go hand in hand anyway
