How does the shown object point to a better world?
With the object bed I associate rest, recreation, energy, relaxation, reading, sleep and especially time. It points to a better world, in that it means being able to rest, to do what one feels like doing and especially not having to work. Under capitalism, people work an enormous amount, at least for about 30 years, up to eight hours a day, which means that they have less time for other, more important things, such as rest. Too much work has been shown to put a strain on health and the psyche, for example, and may even make them unable to work. A bed provides a short break, a healthy rest away from the overload of work.
This is how I imagine a better world:
I imagine a better world as a just world, where all people are equal and free and have the same resources, such as education and economic capital, available from birth. I imagine a world in which no one is hungry or homeless, in which no one is forced to live in the world because of certain characteristics — such as ethnicity, gender, religion, etc. — and / or treated differently. It should be a world in which people and their health and the environment are put before the economy. It should be a world free of property, without a monopoly on the use of force, where all people have access to any kind of infrastructure and can move freely anywhere at any time. Ultimately, it should be a world in which there is much less work, about four hours four days a week, so that there is more time for recreation.
