One of the main problems, even with the “leftist” discussions and protests, is the normalization of European, eurocentric ideas; ethics; and beliefs. Their definition of production and productive is based solely on the ideas of industrialization. They are concerned with hierarchical relationships within that very limited scope. Everything is defined by European based modes and means of production and distribution.
None seem to realize that the heart and lifeblood of those systems are directly related to operating from a position of privilege. Even the “great philosophers” whom they love to quote and argue minute points upon have built those belief systems from a position of privilege on the backs of enslaved and colonized peoples, entirely from stolen land and resources.
The foundation of capitalism is theft. Even those that seemingly embrace that belief seem unable to recognize that capitalism created modern industrialization, not vice versa.
