    “Nuclear power is capitalist bullshit” is not the hot take I was expecting. And it’s utter horseshit.

      I can see nuclear power plants being a capitalists dream though. It’s not like renewable energy sources, that can be owned by smaller groups of people. A nuclear power plant is owned by a corporation.

      It’s also quite capitalist in nature when you consider that it mostly burdens future generations for gains and profits now. And it exploits a non-renewable natural source for resources.

        Yeah all those corporations in in the USSR owning all those nuclear plants…

        The power generation isn’t inherently biased to one economic system.

        There are other ways of organising.

        You just seem short sighted.
