Human Capitalism

“The man without skills and knowledge leaning terrifically against nothing.”

– Faulkner’s Intruder in the Dust.

I’ve just finished reading one of the reading materials for tomorrow’s lecture. I have been stuck with one of the readings that I jumped to this one. Interesting, I must say.

There’s a real tension of capitalism, where they use human as its tool to gain wealth, with humanism, where they refuse to see human as commodities. We have to admit this is happening. I have seen more than enough on how work labors have been “used” as a mean of capitalism. Massive working hour, low paycheck, no health insurance, etc are just to few somee. But, I also have to admit that without human capitalism, humanism would be just utopia. People will not upgrade themselves to get a better living. I guess human is a commodity after all. But remember, human has something that material does not have, rights. And as long as people still see human as in human commodity, with human rights, and not material commodity, everything should be just fine.
