. . .and the Way Forward. Part 3. GLOBAL STRATEGIC HYPOTHESES.


. . .and the Way ForwardPart 3.  GLOBAL STRATEGIC HYPOTHESES
[see http://equitism.org/Equitism/Equitism-entry.htm ].






Dear Readers,


GLOBAL STRATEGIC HYPOTHESES.  As the global Capitalist system develops, ever greater capital -- ever greater capital wealth, hence ever greater political power -- becomes concentrated in ever fewer hands.


And the most capital-concentrated core of the capitalist ruling class becomes anti-capitalist [in the sense of being against competitive capitalism, and only for state-capitalist dictatorship], and anti-human, in the sense of pursuing drastic “human population reduction” -- unprecedented levels of mass murder -- via various “eugenics” ideologies, visited upon the global working classes.


Upon these global working classes, these plutocrats impose a deepening impoverishment as these rulers fight increasingly against any working-class-beneficial further growth of the social forces of production, and, indeed fight consciously to reverse the growth of those social reproductive forces, these plutocrats being hell-bent on saving their concentrated capital from near total devaluation due to technological obsolescence depreciation, the write-offs of which capital transforms their rate of profit into an accelerating rate of loss.


If the competitive capitalist acceleration of the rate of beneficial technological advance were to be permitted, by them, to continue, their accumulated capital-value holdings would gradually, then suddenly, vanish, and their power would pass to new upstart competitors, especially in the [former] “Third World”, wielding the most advanced fixed capital plant and equipment, and also wielding the still-lagging wage-levels there to boot.

This issue is centrally exemplified in the case of the fear -- the fear of the near-total devaluation of petroleum-industry capital, and of related mega-bank loan capital, both owned by the dominant capitalist ruling class faction -- due to the advent of fusion power, a fear held most strongly within that core ruling faction, Rockefeller, etc.

How then, can the working class effectively counter the "eugenics", anti-progress, anti-productive-forces, pro-state-capitalist, pro-police-state, “95% population reduction” strategy of this degenerate, descendant-phase ruling class?  [for more about this strategy, see:  http://capitalismsfundamentalflaw-wayforward.blogspot.com/2013/03/plutocracy-publicly-proclaims-planned.html ].

The answer must be found in a shift of social power to the working class, away from this rapacious ruling class.

If this power shift is to be sustainable, it must not be only via a popular-movement-based, waxing-and-waning, purely-political power shift.

It must be institutionalized as a gain in working class economic power.

The political checks and balances, that kept ruling class abuses of political power down to “a dull roar”, during the ascendant phase of [more competitive] capitalism, have been increasingly obviated, as capital ownership concentration has increased, by the vast bribery, the wholesale buy-out, the “hostile takeover”, of the national political state -- executive, legislature, and judiciary -- by the owner’s of the most concentrated capital.

This “ultimate M&A” of the national state by, e.g., the Rockefeller family machine, is exemplified by the machinations of the Rockefeller Foundation, and of the Rockefeller-dominated “Trilateral Commission”, and the Rockefeller-dominated “New York Council on Foreign Relations”, which virtually owns, lock, stock, and barrel, for example, the higher offices of the U. S. Federal Government, as well as news media organizations, both private and “public” [e.g., recently including PBS, e.g., the ‘PlutocracyBS Rockefeller Hour’, CPB, the ‘Corporation for Plutocracy Broadcasting’, and NPR,  ‘National Plutocracy Radio’].


As a result of this usurpation of the national state, only new, and partially trans-capitalist, economic checks and balances can revive the now obviated political checks and balances, and regenerate capitalist representative democracy, while also advancing that democracy toward the political-ECONOMIC DEMOCRACY that is the higher successor system to the present, descendant phase capitalist system, thereby ending the capability of the present ruling class to continue to impose ‘‘‘stealth eugenics’’’, and ‘stealth humanocide’, world wide, as they are doing, ever increasingly, at present, for those who can see “behind the [Rocke-Nazi media’s] headlines”.


We wish, with Marx, to look to the seeds of the successor system to capitalism, to the seeds of economic democracy in particular, the seeds that can form the foundation of a new constitutional system that includes economic, as well as revived political, checks and balances, on the political power of, and against the abuse of citizen rights and civil liberties, by national state, yes, but, as well, checks and balances on the economic and political power of economic institutions.


Marx found these seeds in the worker-owned producers cooperatives of his time, and in the very principle of “joint-stock” capital, or “share capital”, i.e., in the stockholder democracy, limited to owners of shares of capital in a capitalist enterprise -- the principle of “one share owned, one vote” in the election of capitalist governing boards or boards of directors.

. . .and the Way Forward. Part 2. GLOBAL STRATEGIC HYPOTHESES.



. . .and the Way Forward.  Part 2.     GLOBAL STRATEGIC HYPOTHESES. 







Dear Readers,


GLOBAL STRATEGIC HYPOTHESES.  ‘‘‘Descendant-Phase’’’, or late -- increasingly STATE -- capitalism, is, 'predictedly', “lawfully”, tending to destroy ‘‘‘Ascendant-Phase’’’ capitalist, representative democracy.

It is tending to degenerate that capitalist democracy, increasingly, at an accelerated rate, into plutocratic, police-state, totalitarian, “eugenocidal” -- ‘humanocidal’ -- state-capitalism.

This would already be a tendency of late capitalism, due to the ever increasing, accelerating concentration of capital wealth in ever-fewer hands, via the competition of capitals, via the bankrupting of smaller firms, via mergers, via acquisitions, and via hostile takeovers of all kinds.

But beyond that, the thus ever-shrinking conspiracy of the concentrated capital owners, of ruling families -- of the plutocratic ruling class -- has become collectively mad -- has been driven into a terminal group sociopathic psychosis -- because capitalism itself has turned against them.

That is, it is not just unchecked power -- the kind of near absolute power that corrupts absolutely -- that has driven our present ruling class into this collective psychosis. 

Thus, the modern, degenerate-phase ruling class, has not been driven mad by just the same causes that drove the emperors of the ancient world -- Alexander “The Great”, Nero, Caligula, etc., etc., ad nauseam -- into power psychosis.

The madness of the modern, degenerate phase ruling class, is driven by the total threat to their power, to their privilege, and to its criminal perks, that capitalism itself has become, and, “lawfully”, had to become.

The more that their capital-ownership is accumulated, concentrated, consolidated, and centralized in vast masses of fixed capital, and in their banks’ long-term loan portfolios, with those portfolios’ loan principal invested in technologically-vulnerable fixed capital, the more are they vulnerable to the gradual, but also to the sudden and comprehensive, devaluation of those capital assets, by the process at the core of what capitalism motivates and incentivizes:  the growth of productivity, “the growth of the social forces of production”, via the technological application of science to capitalist production.

These ruling capitalists face the continual devaluation of the capital-value which forms the core of their social power base, by upstart entrepreneurs at home, by new entrants abroad, by rising middle classes in some of their former “Third World”, where their long-ruling dictator-servants, servants to these ruling capitalists, have, relatively recently, been thrown-out, and where rising middle classes, educated and entrepreneurial, threaten new and accelerating technological innovations in productivity -- in “productive force” -- that would obliterate the rule of these ruling capitalists, by ‘obsoleting’ the capital that forms the base of their social and political power.

So these ruling capitalists propagate new, genetically-engineered ‘designer diseases’ all over the world, but, especially in the rising former “Third World”, also fomenting civil wars, and mass homelessness and displacement, now exceeding all prior precedents, including the formerly record refugee crisis of and after these ruling capitalists' World War II.

The most salient example of the potential dethronement of this degenerate ruling class by further growth of the social forces of production is the example of what fusion power -- were they ever to allow it to “go public” -- would do to their international petroleum industry, their global Dictatorship of Petroleum.

So, for long now, almost the only area of innovation that this ruling class will allow is in that of the internet, of digital electronics and communications, of the computer industry, of “social media” ‘self-dossier-compiling’ -- the areas that they have already turned into the objective infrastructure of a comprehensively totalitarian, Orwellian police-state, in which every citizen’s every word, every library borrowing, every e-mail, even, soon, every emotion and every thought, is monitored in “real time” by their secret police organizations, by the NSA, by the CIA, by the hidden but taxpayer funded secret police organizations whose names you don't even know, etc., etc.

This ruling-class-allowed area of internet innovation also has the benefit, for this ruling plutocracy, of bankrupting more and more of the newspaper industry, of the magazine industry, of the book-publishing industry, etc., thus allowing ruling class entities to buy up the assets of these bankrupted firms for the proverbial “pennies on the dollar”, thus making more and more media -- the newspapers, the magazines, the book-publishers, the radio stations, the cable television channels, etc., ‘concentratedly’ owned and controlled by these ruling plutocrats.

Thats a kind of ‘technodepreciation’ that they LIKE!

In the United States, under this ever-growing “power of the purse” of the ruling plutocracy, “even” “National Public Radio” has become ‘National Plutocracy Radio’, the “Corporation for Public Broadcasting” has become the “Corporation for Plutocracy Broadcasting”, the PBS, Public Broadcasting System, has become the “Plutocracy Broadcasting System”, and its “PBS News Hour” has recently become a wholly-owned subsidiary of the ‘Rocke-Nazi’ Rockefeller Foundation, and the Rockefeller-"owned" New York Council on Foreigh Relations [a core institution of the ruling class], becoming, in the process, the ‘PlutocracyBS Rockefeller Hour.

So much for the ‘‘‘Ascendant Phase’’’ “Free Press”!

Of course, these ruling plutocrats, and their secret police organs -- the CIA, “military intelligence”, etc. -- are only too adept at creating “false flag” traumas, such as 9-11 [with a little help from their Saudi Arabian servant-dictators], and MK-Ultra/MK-Delta, “Manchurian Candidate” mass shooters, who are usually programmed to conveniently kill themselves after they have carried out their programmed murder of children, so that they can never be interrogated, or psychologically examined, etc.

In this way, this ruling class hopes, for example, to extort and bludgeon the American people into giving up the Second Amendment to the American’s Bill Of Rights -- the right of citizens to bear arms!

This is all accompanied, of course, by the accelerated “buy-out”, the “M&A hostile takeover”, the utter prostitution, of all three branches of political government -- including especially the “regulatory agencies” of the executive branches, the legislatures, the judiciaries, at all levels of government -- national, or federal, state, or provincial, county, and municipal, and the assassination -- character assassination, or outright murder -- of those decent public servants who refuse to be bought by the ruling class.

This socio-psychopathic ruling class -- whose efforts to establish into U.S. law, and into law worldwide, their “eugenics” ideology for the extermination of 95% of the human race [see:  http://capitalismsfundamentalflaw-wayforward.blogspot.com/2013/03/plutocracy-publicly-proclaims-planned.html ] were reversed as a result of the “defection” of their erstwhile 'servant-dictator', Hitler, to become, instead, their challenger for world rule, and the post-WWII global revelation of the horrors of Hitler’s eugenics extermination camps after Hitler’s defeat, eugenics camps that were both funded and designed for him by the U.S. 'Rocke-Nazi' faction, whose Hitler-funding operatives included Prescott Bush, the founder of the Bush family as a family of lower-plutocracy servants to the Rockefellers -- have never renounced their “eugenics” ideology.

Instead, until their totalitarian state-capitalist police-state is fully in place, they are implementing their “eugenics” in stealth mode.

They are doing so through --

  • ·         ‘bio-engineered diseases’ like GMO-AIDS, GMO-Ebola, GMO-Zika, etc., etc.;

  • ·         adulterated “vaccines” that are inducing an exponentially-growing epidemic of auto-immune disease, autism, and senile dementia, including Alzheimer’s;

  • ·         processed ‘pseudo-foods’ that induce obesity, diabetes, cancer, heart disease, stroke, and, in general, early death in terms of all-cause mortality;

  • ·         an epidemic of addictive, lethal opioid prescriptions;

  • ·         pharmaceutical ‘side-effects cascades’ due to “medicines” that are really side-effects-engineered poisons [remember the recent mass murder via Merck's Vioxx?], including the contamination of municipal water sources with pharmaceutical residues from urine, etc., with lead, with arsenic, etc.;

  • ·         the destruction of antibiotics and the breeding of antibiotic-immune “superbugs” by “agricultural” overuse of antibiotics, the hormone disruption of millions of citizens by the hormones used in meat foods, etc., etc.;

  •           the wholesale stealth extermination of bee colonies -- of pollinators -- as part of the 'Rocke-Nazi' plan for induced famine. . .;

  •  ·         mass murders by drug gangs and drug cartels, secretly owned, bankrolled and controlled [and financially profited-from] by the 'Rocke-Nazis', in developing nations, and in otherwise potentially developing nations, of the 'Rocke-Nazi' servant-dictators-created "Third World" -- e.g., in Mexico, in Columbia, in El Salvador, in Guatemala, in Nicaragua, etc., etc. -- to disrupt and delay the socio-econo-politcal development of these nations, their potential for industrialization, for middle class ascendancy, for democracy, and their potential, thereby, to induce 'technodepreciation' in 'Rocke-Nazi' capital assets, due to competition from their initially low-wage, but potentially "high-tech", potential exports -- hopefully, from the 'Rocke-Nazi' "eugenicists" point of view, delaying those developments until the 'Rocke-Nazis' are in position to launch their planned 'humanocidal' global holocaust.


 -- not to mention the “stealth genocide” of those citizens who have more melanin in their skins by police summary execution. 

Don’t worry, you citizens with less melanin in your skins -- the secret police will get around to murdering you and your family, only just a little bit later! 

The 'Rocke-Nazis' just want you to think that your paler skin makes you immune to extra-judicial "legalized" homicide, until it’s too late to protect yourself, and until your darker skinned fellow citizens have already been “dispatched” first. 

As far as the ‘Rocke-Nazis’ are concerned, you are all “niggers”, that is, you are all “workers” -- “white” and “black” and “brown” and “yellow” and “red” alike -- and to be exterminated on schedule!

This hyper-insanity of our present, ‘Rocke-Nazi’ ruling class is documented, in their own words, and in the words of many of their key ‘spokes-servants’, in the book by Robert Zubrin, Merchants of Despair:  Radical Environmentalists, Criminal Pseudo-Scientists, and the Fatal Cult of Antihumanism, New York:  New Atlantis Books, 2012, and in the following blog entry --




Given this background, about our present context, and condition, that of a self-degenerating,  ‘‘‘Descendant-Phase Capitalism’’’, what is the way forward, to the higher successor system to capitalism -- beyond state-capitalism -- that we can start working on today, that will begin to increasingly check the power of the degenerate-phase ruling class, and to allow the producers -- the “working-class” -- i.e., the vast majority of humanity, to survive, and to begin to thrive?

Capitalism’s Fatal Flaw... Part 1. GLOBAL STRATEGIC HYPOTHESES.



Capitalisms Fatal Flaw...  Part 1







Dear Readers,




GLOBAL STRATEGIC HYPOTHESES.

Karl Marx, in his 1859 Preface to his book A Contribution to the Critique of Political Economy, wrote an ‘historically generic’ account of the process of human-social ...evolution/revolution/evolution/..., such as it had emerged from his exhaustive historical researches, as follows:

The general conclusion at which I arrived and which, once reached, became the guiding principle of my studies can be summarised as follows.”

“In the social production of their existence, human beings inevitably enter into definite relations, which are independent of their will, namely, relations of production appropriate to a given stage in the development of their material forces of production. ...  At a certain stage of development, the material productive forces of society come into conflict with the existing relations of production....  From forms of development of the productive forces these relations turn into their fetters.  Then begins an era of social revolution ... . [pp. 20-21]

[M. Dobb, ed., K. Marx, A Contribution to the Critique of Political Economy, NY:  Internat’l. Publs., 1972 [text modified for gender-inclusivity.]]


The question for us herein is this:  “How does the historically general “guiding principle”, described above, apply, ‘‘‘historically-specifically’’’, to the “historically-specific”, late-capitalist, state-capitalist epoch of the self-development of the human species within which we presently reside?

How does “the growth of the social forces of production” -- the growth of the society-reproductive self-force of the societal self-reproduction of the human species, initially promoted by industrial-capitalist social relations -- come into conflict with the primary “social relation of production” of the capitalist epoch, i.e., with the “capital[/wage-labor]-relation” itself?


Early in the development of the social-reproductive self-force of human society, within, and by, the capital-relation, the physical mass, and, typically to a lesser extent, the ‘‘‘value-mass’’’, of the [non-human-bodily] means of production is small, relative to the physical mass, and to the ‘‘‘value-mass’’’, or “cost”, of the living human bodies, the workers, employed to produce the profitable commodity-capital that the capitalists appropriate, "own", and then sell. 

E.g., workers produce commodities using relatively inexpensive hand tools.

But the interaction among capitalists, via their “individual capital” enterprises -- “the competition of capitals” -- drives a continuing increase in the relative physical mass, and, typically to a lesser extent, in the ‘value-mass’, of such means of production. 

It does so because the productivity increases -- i.e., the increases in “productive force” -- driven by these advances in the means of production, and in the related skills of the workers who employ and apply those means of production -- including, especially, the development of “fixed capital” machinery -- means, in net terms, more profit.

Such greater productivity means more profit because higher productivity means that more of each worker's working day labor-time goes into producing commodities that accrue to “relative surplus value” -- to the portion of the aggregate value of the commodities output that converts, in part, into profits, when those commodities are sold at their value.

It does so because less of each working day goes into producing the commodities whose value is an equivalent for the wages paid to those workers -- a non-profit part of what the workers produce. 

This profit advantage incentive drives the development of the means of production.

However, this drive, within the capital-social-relation-of-production, to grow the societal [[self-]re-]productive force, is, all along, but, especially, later on, a double-edged sword for the capital-relation itself, although, at first, the 'capital-cutting' edge of this two-sided blade is scarcely noticed by, or even noticeable to, the capitalists.

Productive force increase is double-edged for accumulated capital-value, especially for capital-value as accumulated in the form of means of production, and thus also for the economico-politico-social power which attaches to the ownership of that accumulating capital-value.

Advancing society-productive, [societal [self-]re-]reproductive force -- advancing “technology” -- technologically depreciates the capital-value of the capitalists’ means of production. 

Technological advance devalues accumulated older capital-value, by technological obsolescence depreciation, or “moral depreciation” -- ‘technodepreciation’, for short.

Productive force increase in the form of productivity-increasing technological advance forces the "premature" retirement of "capital equipment" -- capitalist means of production -- that have been rendered obsolete by competition from capitalists wielding the more technologically-advanced, more productive capital equipment.

Productive force increase in the industries producing means of production also means that the "abstract labor-time" cost of producing again a new vintage of "the same" capital equipment is lower than that cost was in the past, so that the capital-value of "the same" capital equipment, old and new alike, falls. 

The capitalists caught holding the older, more expensive equipment can be forced to reduce the prices of their output to meet price competition from capitalists wielding the newer, less expensive equipment. 

In effect, the "old-holding" capitalists are, in such cases, forced to lower the "wear-and-tear" depreciation charge component of the prices of their output. 

They are thus, in effect, in so doing, devaluing their old-vintage capital equipment -- writing off into their loss column part of the "original" or "historical" capital-value of that capital equipment, which it garnered at the time of its purchase, but which it garners no longer, since its cost of production has fallen via increases in the productivity of its type of machine-making.

They are thus forced to DIS-accumulate part of their accumulated capital-value, which, 'net-ing out' against their gross profits, will reduce their net profits, or even drive those net profits into negative -- loss -- territory, for the accounting period in which this devaluation of their capital-equipment is recognized.

What if the average rate of technological advance, hence of technological obsolescence depreciation of fixed capital, eventually exceeds the rate of “wear and tear depreciation” amortization of that same fixed capital?

If it does so, then the original cost of capital equipment will not have time to be recovered, by capitalists charging wear-and-tear depreciation expenses as a component of their commodity-output prices, before the equipment must be scrapped due to obsolescence depreciation, e.g., under competitive pressure from newer, etc., enterprises, that have installed newer, more productive equipment.

If so, then the “undepreciated portion” of planned future "wear-and-tear" depreciation charges on the older, competitively obsolete capital equipment, must be “written off” as a loss, a negative contribution to accounting period net profit -- subtracted from gross profits for the accounting period in which the partial or total “scrapping” of that obsolete, or devalued, capital equipment occurs.

If such technodepreciation-induced “write-offs” regularly continue, and, even worsen, if they accelerate, accounting-period after accounting period, profitability will fall secularly.

Moreover, if the periodic increment of relative surplus value, and of profits, gained by scrapping older equipment, and by replacing it with newer equipment, is small compared to the value of the [fixed] capital “written-off”, then this may manifest as a secularly declining rate of return on capital investment.

Later capitalism has -- more specifically, the owners of concentrated industrial capital in later capitalism have -- more and more to lose from further growth of productivity -- from further growth of the "productive forces" -- [more and more fixed capital-value, exposed to technodepreciation, relative to all other components of operating capital-value], and less and less to gain from further growth in the "social forces of production" [as the portion of the working day that reproduces wages -- the portion from which additional relative surplus-value can be wrested by further productivity increases -- shrinks asymptotically, approaching ever closer to zero].

For a vivid example of what this means, consider what would happen, to the social power of the core of the contemporary, concentrated capital-owning capitalist ruling class, much of whose economic, political and social power, is founded upon their “global dictatorship of petroleum”, if fusion power reactors were deployed world wide. 

The capital-value of oil industry fixed capital plant and equipment owned by that core ruling class would plummet and, in proportion to this disappearance of the bulk of their accumulated capital-value, so would the power of this core ruling class -- their power to "buy" other people:  other capitalists, military officers, politicians, legislators, judges, policemen, journalists, scientists, servants of all kinds, sexual subservience and other "perks" of their power, etc., etc. -- also disappear. 

This is why every scientist, engineer, and inventor who has demonstrated a reactor attaining a successful fusion reaction has been swiftly done away with by this core ruling class faction.


This is why that ruling faction has funded the proliferation of anti-science, anti-technology, “neo-primitivist”, 'pro-mystoid', “back to nature”, “small is beautiful”, “zero economic growth”, “zero population growth”, eugenics, “global warming”, pro-humanocide ideologies [not to mention their funding and other engineering of the global proliferation of Dark Ages neo-"religions" -- including "fundamentalist", theocratic-totalitarian, genocidal pseudo-Christianity, "fundamentalist", theocratic-totalitarian, genocidal pseudo-Islam, "fundamentalist", theocratic-totalitarian, genocidal pseudo-Judaism, and "fundamentalist", theocratic-totalitarian, genocidal pseudo-Hinduism -- all as a divide and conquer strategy against the working class, and as a "justification" for the reflation of their Military-Industrial Complex, otherwise threatened with collapsing funding due to the collapse of Stalinist, totalitarian, genocidal state-capitalism in Russia/Eastern Europe].


Again, this general fall in the rate of return on capital invested is especially likely, in the later stages of capitalist accumulation, if, in those stages, the value of fixed capital plant and equipment dwarfs the value of wages, this dwarfing being, itself, an expression of the high level of social reproductive force already attained, for it is the growing physical mass, and, secondarily, the growing 'value-mass', of the machine means of production that enables the growth of commodity-production productivity. 

Again, this is also especially likely if, given the advances in productivity, or in “productive force”, already achieved, the value of wages is already a tiny percentage of the value of the commodities produced, so that only a tiny percentage of the working day remains as the percentage of daily working time that reproduces the value of wages, of the wages-expense.  

For this means that only a tiny amount of additional potential relative surplus-value is available, per worker, to be reaped as such by further increases in productivity.

So, on the one hand, increasing productive force adds to profits, by increasing the rate of relative surplus-value, although at an ever-diminishing rate, for the reasons cited above.

But, on the other hand, increasing productive force devalues accumulated fixed-capital-value, subtracting from gross profits, due to the "write-off", contra gross profits, of that devaluation that arises due to ‘technodepreciation’.


This nets out on the side of rising net profits during the earlier stage of the self-evolution of the society founded upon the capital-relation, when fixed capital-value is but a small percentage of the total capital-value employed, this smallness reflecting the then lower level of the social reproductive force. 

That early stage is the ascendant phase of the capitalist system.


This nets out on the side of falling net profits -- falling rates of return on capital investment -- during the later stage of the self-evolution of the society founded upon the capital-relation, when fixed capital-value becomes a gargantuan percentage of the total capital-value employed, reflecting the gargantuan level of development of the societal-reproductive force -- unless the capitalist ruling class undertakes catastrophic steps to block, divert, and undermine this capital-value-destroying growth of human-social self-productive force.

That later stage, in which we now reside, since circa 1900, and which is characterized, e.g., by global economic depressions, world wars, genocides, and, potentially, by global revolution, is the descendant phase of the capitalist system.


Those catastrophic steps are the core of the enfetterment, by the capital-relation -- and, consciously, by the core of the capitalist ruling class, as a class-for-itself -- of the further growth of the social forces of production.


This ‘intra-duality’, or ‘‘‘self-contradiction’’’, of the capital-relation -- of ‘“self-expanding capital-value”’, due to the increase in relative surplus-value wrought by productive force increase -- versus ‘self-contracting capital-value’, due to the ‘technodepreciation’ devaluation of capital-value also resulting from productive force increase -- is capitalisms fatal flaw.

This fatal flaw renders capitalism a self-advancing, progressive, growing, self-organizing system early on.

This same fatal flaw renders capitalism a self-destroying, humanity-destroying, self-dis-organizing system later on. 


That is, humanity, acting as capitalism, must eventually negate itself as capitalism, in the one way, or in the other way.


The descendant phase of the capitalist system must eventuate in the dialectical self-negation of the capitalist system -- leading either to its transcendence, in and via a global renaissance of human flourishing, founded in a global generalization of social equity, or in the mutual ruin of the contending classes:  a new, and, this time, likely final Dark Age.


For which of these two outcomes will you fight?

Miguel
