And the alternative?
Not being beholden to the destructive rule of capital and being able to sustainably and cleanly advance as a human species

You wouldn't have to "become" anything, apart from free

It would be a difficult thing to fathom for a closed minded and materialistic person like you.

That’s an ambition, not an alternative sociopolitical structure.

Simple, we aim to be as self-sufficient as possible and for what we can not do ourselves we use the traditional model of bartering to allow us to share our skills and talents.

Communism fails. Accept that. I would rather choose the lesser of two evils: capitalism.

Every country that has ever labelled itself communist was unfortunately an instance of heavily state-planned capitalism. Even the phrase "communist country" is oxymoronic, as the state would be abolished.

Nobody asked for one. "Capitalism is Slavery" is not a sociopolitical structure either.

To sustainable and cleanly advance would require even more controls put on the behaviors of people. You call that freedom?

We're talking about a society with no state, no money, no classes, no bosses and thus no masters. Only horizontally arranged communities of humans with literally no incentive to ruin their planet in pursuit of profit. Yes, I'd call that freedom.

Really? If you are self-sufficient you are able to produce your own shelter, food and exist solely off the land - no need for a job, other than to work the land to support yourself only - not corporate greed too.

I am not promoting communism, I have told you what my desired system is. I guess it could be categorised as left-wing libertarianism as my system avoids the use of government to control individuals.

Who owns the means of production in your proposed system? Because if it's private individuals, then what we have here is a continuation of capitalism.

The post that you replied to asked you to suggest an alternative to capitalism.
