A couple of days ago, I started this
thread, about my dissatisfaction with Capitalism.
I was quite surprised at the degree of response it generated. Most of said response has been positive, and has been the type of intelligent
discussion that I was aiming for. Some of said responses, however, are exasperating, because they make assumptions that I believe in and stand for
certain things that I do not, at all. They also tend to indicate the severity of the brainwashing that has afflicted the American public.
For the record, I do not
consciously self-identify as a Socialist or Marxist. I also never have here, despite being accused of such. There
are a number of areas where I have differences of opinion with Socialist theory. These are the following:-
1. I do not fundamentally believe that any political or economic theory that has yet been devised, has any chance of working, for as long as our
society is ruled by psychopaths, which it currently is. If anything, the Bolshevik and Maoist incidents more than anything else, have conclusively
Psychopaths are individuals who have inverted morality, relative to non-psychopaths. They are incapable of empathy or compassion, and their only
forms of psychological gratification come from both sadism, and inequality or elitism. The main thing they need, more than anything else, is
justification for the belief in their inherent superiority to everyone else around them. Money, possessions, and even power, are not valuable to them
in and of itself, but only to the extent that they are capable of fulfilling that end; of providing rationalisation for the belief in superiority to
The removal of psychopaths from the leadership of our society, MUST
become our central priority as a species. If this is not
accomplished, then we simply will not survive, long term. It will not matter if we try to implement Capitalism, any form of Marxism, or whatever
else. The psychopaths will ensure that stratification, hierarchy, elitism, and inequality will always exist, regardless of the name.
2. I am not an internationalist. I actually view federalism as a disease, and one of the greatest instruments of tyranny that exists. All of my
analysis of economics, has consistently implied that a country's wealth (and definitely its' social wellbeing) is generally inversely
proportional to its' size; that is, the smaller a given community is, the happier, and more cohesive, prosperous, and peaceful it tends to be. This
is one of my major grievances with Capitalist economic theory as well; the fact that it presupposes international trade as a given.
3. It follows as a logical consequence of the above, that I am generally not going to advocate large-scale, top-down central planning, especially not
at the federal level. I would not be averse to experiments of this
nature, as I consider
that concept highly interesting; but at no more than the local town (probably 1,000 people at the absolute most) level; and certainly not at a federal
or national level. In particular, I do not advocate the existence of any legislative assembly that makes decisions which are binding on any
individual who is not physically present in the room where said decisions are made.
4. While I do
advocate the provision of certain basic commodities to members of a community, on the simple basis that they are human beings,
and have the same right to exist that I do, that does not imply that said commodities necessarily include every single thing
that any given
individual might want. I advocate the provision of food of a sufficient quality to maintain a sound level of health, clothing capable of doing such,
and basic shelter, again in support of this effect. I expect the usual kind of sarcastic, rhetorical trolling from Capitalist advocates in response
to this point, with regards to my definitions here. I do not completely know what we could define as necessary to maintain an appropriate level of
survival and wellbeing, as of yet, and admit this openly. That is something which would need to be worked out.
This also does not imply that I encourage complete indolence and inactivity. I do, however, advocate that individuals be permitted to seek the work
which their own aptitude and temperament best suits them for, for the best interests of both themselves and society. I believe that this can only
occur when basic subsistence has been removed as a motivation for work.
It is entirely possible that luxury items that are not strictly necessary for physical survival, could well still constitute something more closely
resembling the classic Capitalist economy, as an overlay to this basic provision. I have no objection to this, as I believe that Capitalism can and
does have its' place, where rare items or non-essentials are concerned.
However, I also envision a society where narcissism (and other psychopathic manifestations) is rightfully recognised by its' symptoms, as the
psychiatric disorder that it is; and for the fashion industry in particular, to largely be recognised as an outgrowth and manifestation of said mental
disease. Paris Hilton, as a prominent example, should be recognised as chronically mentally ill, and given the psychiatric help that she needs,
rather than encouraged to be a pathological leader and example to the rest of society.
Universal subsistence provision cannot realistically occur for as long as we have psychopathic governance, and this is acknowledged. Until that
point, attempts at such will remain a recipe for tyranny. The psychopaths must be removed first.
5. I advocate one law for all men, women, Muslims, and homosexuals etc. I do not believe that acts of violence should be given more or less severe
penalties, based on which demographic of the population was their target. This is a belief commonly held within Socialist circles, that I have
absolutely no patience for. It is a recipe for tyranny, pure and simple. It is also exclusively based on hysterical emotion, and is entirely
I also only advocate feminism to the extent that such implies educational, political, social, and economic equality
with men. I do not
advocate female chauvanism or dominance, and I also do not advocate the attitude of some seperatist lesbians or mysandrists, who view my gender as
disposable, and believe that men do not have the right to exist.
6. I advocate individual and personal sovereignty and responsibility, as a fundamental prerequisite of ending psychopathic governance. Advocating
that human beings become willing to provide each other with what is necessary for basic survival, and that we learn to treat each other with
compassion, does not imply that I advocate enablement, codependency, or indolence.
Hopefully this will be enough to explain my position to most of you. I am aware that there will still be some single-minded, exclusively
pro-Capitalist trolls, who will continue to make mindless and erroneous assumptions about my beliefs. I cannot prevent that; but I am hoping that I
have communicated with those of you who have sufficient integrity and mental initiative to listen.
