This blog-entry contains the fourth part
of my serialization, within this blog, of the E.A.g.’s [Equitist Advocacy
group's] “Way Forward” proposal,
to the Totalitarian,
of Capitalism -- Political-Economic Democracy”, with my own edits added to their text, for its
improvement [improvement, at least, to my way of thinking!].
It needs to be “improved upon”, and circulated, «samizdat», worldwide, in such “improved” editions -- i.e., in as many versions as are seen as being needed, by every author who thinks that [s]he can “improve” upon it [including this one].
Here are the links to the original version --
Envisioning the Transition from Capital-Only-Equitarian to Generalized-Equitarian Social Relations of Social Self-Reproduction.
That is, any hierarchy of electors is to be avoided.
The ‘Intra-Duality’ of the “Capital-Relation” and the Emergence therefrom of the Social-Relations-of-Production ‘Socio-Ontology’ of ‘Generalized Equity’: Some Conjectures Regarding ‘Equitism’.
“In so far as it is not immediate transformation of slaves and serfs into wage-labourers, and therefore a mere change of form, it only means the expropriation of the immediate producers, i.e., the dissolution of private property based on the labour of its owner. …”
“as soon as the capitalist mode of production stands on its own feet...the further expropriation of private proprietors takes a new form.”
“That which is now to be expropriated is no longer the labourer working for himself, but the capitalist exploiting many labourers. This expropriation is accomplished by the action of the immanent laws of capitalistic production itself, by the centralisation of capital.”
“One capitalist always kills many.”
“Hand in hand with this centralisation, or this expropriation of many capitalists by few, develop, on an ever-increasing scale, the cooperative form of the labour-process, the conscious technical application of science, the methodical cultivation of the soil, the transformation of the instruments of labour into instruments of labour only usable in common, the economising of all means of production by their use as the means of production of combined, socialised labour [‘the objective socialization of the means of production’ – Ed.], the entanglement of all peoples in the net of the world-market, and, with this, the international character of the capitalist régime. ...”
“The monopoly of capital becomes a fetter upon the mode of production, which has sprung up and flourished along with, and under it.”
“Centralisation of the means of production and socialisation of labour at last reach a point where they become incompatible with their capitalist integument.”
“This integument is burst asunder.”
“The knell of capitalist private property sounds.”
“The expropriators are expropriated.”
“It is destructive of all this, and permanently revolutionary, tearing down all obstacles that impede the development of the productive forces, the expansion of needs, the diversity of production and the exploitation and exchange of natural and intellectual forces.”
“But because capital sets up any such boundary as a limitation and is thus ideally over and beyond it, it does not in any way follow that it has really surmounted it, and since any such limitation contradicts its vocation, capitalist production moves in contradictions, which are constantly overcome, only to be, again, constantly re-established [and, on an ever-larger ‘qualo-fractal’ scale – Ed.].”
“Still more so.”
“The universality towards which it is perpetually driving finds limitations in its own nature, which, at a certain stage of its development will make it appear as itself the greatest barrier to this tendency, leading thus to its own self-destruction.”
Vastly more needs to be said about the historical dynamics and ‘meta-dynamics’ of the «Kapitals»-system, and about the mechanisms and ‘organisms’ of its ‘meta-finite self-conversion / self-bifurcation self-singularity’, as especially about the immanent tendency of accumulating capital-value to de-value itself, and of the rate of capital value-accumulation to decelerate itself, both as expressions of the growth of the society-re-productive forces within capital.
However, the above-excerpted intimations must suffice for the present purpose.
Averting, via Social[-Relations] Revolution, the Otherwise Pre-Destined ‘‘‘New Dark Age’’’ Denouement of ‘‘‘Descendant-Phase’’’ Capitalism: Towards a Strategy for Humanity.
The Fight for Human Liberty is Now a Life-and-Death Struggle Against Descendant-Phase [State-]Capitalism – Against the Unchecked Power of the Totalitarian, ‘‘‘Humanocidal’’’ [State-]Capitalist Plutocracy of the Advanced-Decadent [State-]Capitalist Core of the World-Market System: the Core Plutocracy of the U.S., the U.K., and the E.U. .
The Capital Equity Stock Shares-Principles of ‘Internality Equity’ and the Capital-Governance Norm of Stockholder Democracy.
The share-principle, the capital-equity-principle, the one-share-unit-of-capital-owned = one-vote-for-the-election-of-directors-to-the-board-of-directors governance principle of stockholder democracy immanent within the 'socio-ontological category' of capital, is a principle of economic-democratic enfranchisement for the owners of capital, but also a principle of total economic dis-enfranchisement for the non-owners of capital.
Juridical ‘Meta-Genealogy’ of the Concept of ‘Externality-Equity’ and the Generalization to ‘Stakeholder Democracy’.
The term ‘Externality Equity’ as deployed herein denotes a form of non-stockholder stakeholder equity which arises from principles extending those already extant and precedented in the “equity” tradition of Anglo-American case law.
- The dictatorship of a state-bureaucratic ruling class, whose grip on power and whose tenuous ruling-class-collectivist economic de facto ‘ownership’ claim on the means of production, and on the fruits of the surplus labor of the producers, is political-only, and totally vulnerable to political assault [unlike the case with a ruling class of private owners of capital], therefore tends to totalitarianism as the only effective defense of its ruling power. It does so because any successful political challenge to such a ruling class would mean its political replacement, and thus its total loss of ruling power. If deposed politically, it is deposed totally. Police-state political totalitarianism is thus the "natural" form of political and economic class self-defense for this kind of ruling class.
- The motive to multi-genocidal global totalitarianism of the capitalist plutocracy, formed in the core regions of advanced-decadent private-capital, is quite other than the motive described above. The latter motive arises with the decision of that plutocracy to reverse the historical growth of the human-social forces of production, as its only defense against its overthrow by the ‘obsolescence depreciation’ of its principal capital assets, and by the formation of an educated, tendentially prosperous, and therefore “ungovernable”, “middle class” of producers, of workers, which much-further growth of the productive forces would bring. This power-jeopardy of the advanced-decadent capitalist ruling class is epitomized, in particular, by the prospect, for this petroleum/banking plutocracy, of the advent of controlled nuclear fusion atomic power as a superior and, thus, oil-obsolescing alternative to its core power-asset in fossil-fuel-based molecular power. It is epitomized, in general, by the way that rising, global, “middle-class” levels of workers’ living standards, health, education, and new, entrepreneurial wealth threaten the overthrow of this plutocracy’s power to rule.
