I probably won't go into research although I love science due to this.
I have some pretty bad sensory issues especially when stressed and a deficiency which often make me tired. I can't really "compete" and this competition is so fetishised in science despite being counter-productive!
I feel like I could've had a contribution to science if I could work in that field. Maybe I wouldn't do as many experiments as someone who is able to work 8+ hours a day, but every little bit counts! If less people were scared away or just straight out barred from research due to this demand, we could've cooperated into discovering so much together.
that's the capitalism corrupting everything it touches
@starrycosmos yep! I am 99.9999% sure that the fetishisation of competition is a capitalism thing considering cooperation is better in vast majority of cases. Especially in science!
Sunbeam City is a Libertarian Socialist solarpunk instance. It is ran democratically by a cooperative of like-minded individuals.
