Americans should understand that their capitalism has ended. The authorities are still functioning by the outdated principles, which were relevant in times of individual egoism, by the rule, “one’s income depends on one’s personal egoism and efforts.” Today, however,every person depends on a system or grid of forces that govern the world. Today’s problems aren’t caused by individuals, but by every person’s interaction with the global governing system – with society or humanity. To find solutions, we must look to people’s connection with their environment, rather than to the individuals.
Providing huge monetary funds to revive the economy will not give any result because what’s missing isn’t the money, but the connection between people. The problem is how to create the grid that will connect everyone within people’s feelings and consciousness. It is people’s attitudes that should change: each person should be ready to keep for himself exactly as much as he needs for a normal existence. And all the rest should go to society. “A society of consumers” has ceased to exist. We are entering a society of “optimal existence.”
A quote by Karl Marx from 1867: “Owners of capital will stimulate the working class to buy more and more expensive goods, real estate and equipment, pushing them to take more and more expensive loans until the loans end up in default. The defaulted loans will cause banks to go bankrupt and nationalized by the government, and this, in turn, will lead to the emergence of communism.”
