Hmm. The problem is that returns to capital outstrip returns to labor, in Piketty's terms, so giving workers a share in ownership of capital is a perverse solution. The better the company does (by exploiting labor more effectively as well as other competitive dynamics) the more workers "benefit."

I visited the F-Droid forum today, and what do I see? A thread linking to nazi propaganda site Breitbart, and people discussing this as if it was some kind of normal news site. Of course I reported it immediately (as "inappropriate"), and the initial post was automatically hidden. But when I checked again a few hours later, the post was back as if nothing happened. So obviously an F-Droid team member approved the post, which indicates they are okay with nazi content.
Here is the wikipedia article about Breitbart for reference: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Breitbart_News
@fdroidorg Do you have any comment about this?
