Saying we “all need to seize the means of production” is a call for revolution. Wouldn’t you agree?
This of course brought an immediate and fierce reaction:
Somebody needs to brush up on 20th century history.

An unfortunate phrase to use considering the history of Marxists in power.

Great idea. Marxism has always worked well and resulted in higher productivity, happiness and innovation….#stupidityliveshere

That’s been tried. The consequences were disastrous.
Try something new.

What a brilliant idea!
1. Let others invest their capital in land, buildings, equipment, and obtain all the necessary business permits, legal filings, and establish contracts;2. Steal all of it by government fiat;3. Profit!

The Daily Caller has more:
The video was made by MEANS TV, described as the “world’s first anti-capitalist worker-owned streaming platform,” and featured a roofer breaking down the idea of lower, middle and upper class.
He claimed that the “middle class” label is a myth designed to lull people who have achieved some relative financial stability and success into contentment, and that in reality there were only two classes: those who owned the means of production and those who sold their labor to the owners, the working class.
“Viewing class in its proper context allows us to present the argument that the middle class frequently alluded to in conventional media and politics is a fiction that deliberately obscures the relationship between workers and the owners of society,” he explained.
