Is Medium a capitalist entity? I’m not outright disagreeing with you, but when I consider what Medium is, it seems to me to be more focused on the exchange of wealth, rather than on the creation of wealth and ownership of capital. Does Medium own the factors of production? Is Medium, in fact, the factor of production? In my estimation no, and it seems to me that the gig economy is leaning far more into the free-market system than the “capitalist” system… I think it’s important to delineate, as a free-market system does not preclude socialism.
