The Time Of Capitalism Is Over

confirmAmericans 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 The authorities are still functioning by the outdated principles, which were relevant in times of individual egoism, by the rule, “one’s income depends on one’s personal egoism and efforts.”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.”

  1. The whole and real quote is “The owners of capital will stimulate the need of the working class to take expensive, collateral loans to buy their condos, houses and technological products; and, at the end, these unpaid debts will result in the nationalization of the banks upon their bankrupcy, and so the state will be on the pathway to communism” and belongs to Pat Caufield of the Department of Education in a satyrical United States who started a re-education programme for kids to prepare the transition to communism


    Marx: “Owners of capital, etc.” Fake quote.

    “Owners of capital will stimulate the working class to buy more and more of expensive goods, houses and technology, pushing them to take more and more expensive credits, until their debt becomes unbearable. The unpaid debt will lead to bankruptcy of banks, which will have to be nationalized, and the State will have to take the road which will eventually lead to communism.”

    You can hardly read a blog or a comments column on an online newspaper without seeing this from Marx, right on the money. Did he really say that? Really see it all coming? No he didn’t. Well, maybe Groucho or Zeppo could have… But it’s quoted everywhere to justify arguments about the current credit crisis (11000 google hits for the whole para) so…. But it’s cobblers. It isn’t written anywhere in his writings. Everyone quoting everyone else. An internet myth.

    What it does show is that people will even look at a discredited ideology, so disenchanted are they by corruption and ineptitude that they even want to damn our system by comparison to the horrors of Communism.

    It won’t be lost on Brown and Co., either, that people will suspend their critical faculties and believe pretty much anything they’re told if they hear it often enough.

  3. That supposed Marx quote is a hoax that has been repeatedly debunked. See:

    The Atlantic

    International Herald Tribune

  4. Look, the guy is very near the real problem. Closer than any journalist, analyst, or Fed in this country (USA). The only thing is, people from here WANT it to be broken. Egoism is the center of the problem. You (the reader) think you deserve more than anyone else. It’s an entirely natural thing, that most people with a little level of maturity have managed to negate in favor of the greater good. The US is an extremely immature society. We coddle the youth and their flagrant lifestyles and practices as opposed to more wise and considerate functions. Our self control is gone, our sense of purpose has failed, and we have no future to believe in. There is a large population in the US, who are taking advantage of this.
