No, any sort of energy that could be extracted would be lost during extraction. Energy can't just be pulled out of thin air (unless you're using a wind turbine). If you generate energy via some sort of motion, and plan to extract it, you need to use some sort of method that will slow down that motion. Not to mention it will eventually lose energy due to power (like P = W / t) or friction (F = μ N). So, unless if you power the machine by your muscles, it will be impossible to keep it running. Even then, your muscles need energy from food and stuff to survive. So that plan would fail too.

TL;DR You cannot make any motion perpetual, because it will lose kinetic energy due to friction, and electrical energy due to power.

Our shiny new megalopolis has spawned the inevitable political backlash. If you think there’s nothing more annoying than a Marxist with a bullhorn extolling a failed 19th-century economic theory, put that person on your City Council. So Seattle’s council now includes a socialist, Kshama Sawant, who wants “the public” to take over Amazon ownership.

1000% delet this liberalism

I'm Comrade_Pingu, or just Ian. I like science, computers, and seizing the means of production for the workers. I can't really say much about my ideology, I'm just a Marxist. Since yeah, Luxemburgism is cool, but ML is okayish too. I think that Marxism/Socialism in general looks different everywhere based on material conditions and needs, and we shouldn't have a catch all process of even achieving socialism (besides revolution, of course). What we need though, is the same end goal: FULL COMMUNISM.

I'm a cissie and all that, but I try my best to be as supportive and considerate of my NB and trans comrades undergoing some of the worst persecution the world has to offer.

(oh yeah and i play drums and i like physics that stuff is pretty cool too)
