Yes, we are dependent on Chinese
production for now.

But notice it is the consumer who
actually pays all the costs.

We, the consumers *already* pay
all of the costs of production and
we also pay more (we pay profit).

But if we, as consumers, were to pay
a bit early, and use those funds to
buy and build manufacturing plants
that we co-own, then we could make
any of the designs we like, in any
size batches we need.

This is a bit like "Crowd funded", but
is actually "Crowd Owned".

Free Production will be under our
control when we finally realize the
importance of accepting the risks
of real co-ownership for the simple
purpose of receiving *Product* as
the return on that investment instead
of dreaming of gouging others as
'regular' shareholders expect.

When Consumers and Owners are
one and the same group, then we,
as co-owners, will have full control
of all production, and will no longer
seek scarcity, for the reward will be
the Product itself.

This is true Use-Value production.
