In the graph, the human pyramid of power of Capitalism, an ideology, today sold as a ‘science’, which considers that the language of social and economical power, money, must be re=produced by private bankers (fiat credit, speculative taxes, e-money derivatives, stock-paper, etc.), instead of the government chosen by the people (state deficit).
As such capitalism is in open contradiction with democracy (the government of the people). And to hide this, censorship of real economic science is absolute. We live ruled by money but not a single western ‘democracy’ teaches economics in the school. We have no rights to control the language of social power, but we are told to live in a “Free Market’, a ‘newspeak’ that confuses the audience. Since a ‘Free market’ refers to the freedom of the ‘citizens’ of markets, corporations, not to the freedom of human citizens, who have no rights to jobs and credit, controlled by those corporations. Thus capitalism is essentially a dictatorship of banks and corporations and their owners on top of that pyramid – the stockrats, the true dictators of society in capitalist systems as they have null social responsibility (Anonymous Societies), monopoly in the invention of money in stocks and e-derivatives and use that money to bribe and control the other elements of societies.
In that regard, the previous pyramid fails to convey the non-human structure of capitalism, which essentially is the ‘religion’ or ‘ideology’ of power of ‘animetal=human animal+metal-meme‘ cultures and can be traced to the first Levantine cultures which made of go(l)d, not of weapons, the hypnotic substance that could make work for you, slaves and mercenary armies.
Accordingly what capitalism means is merely this: that we, humans, must evolve and re=produce memes of metal (money, weapons and machines), within the structure of corporations, because they give power to the ‘people-castes’ that control our ‘capitalist civilization’ (the military, bankers and industrial corporations), and sacrifice when needed the rights of human beings and nature, if they collide with the ‘progress’ of those metal-memes.
This absurd ideology of history and economics cannot be doubted as ultimately has a biblical religious origin. Capitalism is therefore the equivalent of ‘Intelligent Design’ in Biology – a religion of money, which ignores any scientific approach or attempt to define objectively those memes of metal and the collateral effects they have on mankind. ‘Money is Go(l)d’ and its pursuit through greed the goal of humanity. Point.
That’s the entire meaning of the human species for a ‘Capitalist Theocracy’ – where money is the language of go(l)d: to work=reproduce and consume=vitalize memes of metal to provide ‘money’ to the 1% of ‘stockrats’, owners of those corporations. Nothing else matters, and all what we are told are rhetoric arguments to justify that bottom line. The complexity of a democratic system and the symbiosis of all its sub-systems makes of course all those facts opaque to the common, ‘memetic, human believer’. In this post we shall consider those self-evident truths, with the novel approach of system sciences and the concepts of societies as super-organisms, humans as believers in memetic imprinting, based in ‘anti-truths’ and money, weapons and machines as metal-memes.
“Let me issue and control a Nation’s money and I care not who makes its laws. The few who can understand the system will be either so interested in its profits, or so dependent on its favours, that there will be no opposition from that class, while, on the other hand, that great body of people, mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantage that Capital derives from the system, will bear its burden without complaint and, perhaps, without even suspecting that the system is inimical to their interests.”

How capitalist democracies work: buying the law.
A capitalist democracy is NOT a democracy (the government of the people through his language of power, the legal word) but a capitalist society (the government of anonymous societies through its language of power, money). In a capitalist society the Free citizens of the economic ecosystem – corporations – have unlimited rights to credit, which they use to cre(dit)ate the world to the image and likeness of its machines, giving orders to the other elements society with prices, salaries and bribes/lobbyism to politicians, which choose laws that favor their products.
Or consider another fundamental treat of capitalism: that a few dynasties of bankers control the language of power of society, money. This becomes again another anti-truth, another ‘freedom’. Yet people forget that if bankers and corporations invent money, since they are not elected and their goal is to reproduce and evolve their machines, they’ll get nothing. The real freedom is therefore the opposite: to control the language of power of society, through elected governments. Then the citizen gets a welfare state.
In a pure capitalist system, companies ‘buy’ politicos votes with that money they print exclusively under ‘deficit zero laws’. Since politicos need but cannot get money from salaries, for their campaigns. And so their ‘real job’ is pandering to corporations for money on exchange for laws.
This self-evident truth has degrees of grey; conceded, specially in Europe and in the past when the 99% organized parties to defend their rights – socialist parties, now corrupted placebos but who effectively brought a minimal degree of democracy by having at least some rights to print money (deficit) back in the 70s. Still the reader should understand that 95% of the world credit is created by banks, not printed by governments.
So today increasingly the job of all Politicos, who renounced to govern in the 80s, when they handed back to bankers the rights to print money, the language of social power, (Reagan, Thatcher) have only a real job besides the ‘placebo’ rituals, photo opportunities and military work for the industrial complex: in a pure capitalist system like America politicos are chosen by their capacity to cheat the people on voting them, with false promises. The act of vote then gives people the feeling they ‘direct’ the system, which appeases them. Then politicos will sell laws to the corporation that pay more. And yet they are still admired and respected by naive voters who still get surprised that the politico NEVER delivers on his promises. But that is NOT his job in pure capitalist systems, where the language of power is monopolized by bankers and corporations. That would be the job in a democracy, and would require 2 obvious facts:
– That states control the nervous langauge of social power, as it happens in all efficient systems, money. The lunacy of the present system is to pretend that an organism could be ruled by a brain, whose spinal chord has been cutted and let’s say connected to the liver. This is the theme: the nervous system, money is now handled by private dynasties of bankers and corporations, which as the liver would do, will just fatten itself till the goose becomes only a big foie. The liver is greedy, loves blood, grows and accumulates fat but doesn’t rule the organism, doesn’t understand it. Only the nationalization of the financial system can make a democracy real, as voters will know politicians can deliver the kind of goods and policies they want to maximize the biological drives that make us happy and make us evolve.
– That the politico as the neuron of society can get a posteriori after he ends his tenure ‘judged’ by his voters, and punished as the brain gets punished with pain if it hurts the body. Without judging a posteriori politicos of course, they will never deliver. Citizens should be able to get a paper after voting to certain politician for a re-vote at the end of his tenure with at least 2 increasing messages of pain: jail and fines equivalent in time and ‘financial energy’ (the two parameters of all actions of the Universe), to the profits of its tenure and the time invested on public services. And 2 messages of reward: re-election for a second tenure and doubling its pay.
Then if those 2 measures were implemented we would be in a real democracy. As not a single system in the world has those 2 measures except Iceland (the closer to have something similar, thanks to referendums and the recent judgment of their president) and China (only the first one), none is democratic. So believe it or not, astoundingly enough China is more democratic than any western state and certainly a better economic system, with credit used to create jobs and a sustainable economy. That gives you a feeling of the sorrowful ‘state of affairs’ of the so-called capitalist democracies.
But perception is all. Hence the importance of controlling information, and creating ‘newspeaks’ of placebo freedoms. And this is indeed a key job for politicos, whose essential job, regarding people, in a pure capitalist system like America is to cheat them, so people feel they ‘direct’ the system, promise heavents and then sell laws to the corporation that pay more. And indeed, the system works, since they are still admired and respected and voters still get surprised than the politico NEVER delivers his promises. Why he should? That is NOT his job in a capitalist society and the sooner he learns it, the further he will rise. To deliver your promises would be the job in a democracy, and would require that the politico as the neuron of society can get a posteriori after he ends his tenure ‘judged’ by his voters, and punished as the brain gets punished with pain if it hurts the body. Without judging a posteriori politicos of course, they will never deliver. That is not their job. Their real job ends when the campaign ends and he must deal with the ‘agents of power’, bankers, corporations, groups of pressure, people who paid their campaigns…
Human citizens in such perfect systems of capitalism have no rights whenever those rights collide with the rights of the wealthiest corporations that pay more money to the politicos to buy their laws. This means basically that a capitalist democracy is perfectly ruled with the precission of a clock by the laws of evolution of machines and weapons: in each age of capitalism, the evolutionary laws of biology determine which machines dominate the system and hence the corporations that reproduce those machines will pay more for the laws and determine the future of the nation. The difference is determinant to understand how the future of our societies is created and what it caters for and to explain why this writer so succesfully has been able to forecast for 20 years the future of the world in its details (1)
For example, in America the XIX century was totally dominated by train corporations, and their politicos decided the future of the nation. Lincoln was a lobbyist for the Illinois railroad companies, and so when trains substituted gunboats and northerners southerners in power, as railroad companies reached higher capital than cotton slave traders, slavery was substituted by white slavery, gunboats by trains and the power moved from Virginian plantation owners such as Washington or Jefferson to railroad lawyers and lobbyists such as Lincoln or the presidents of the Guilded. Then when the car and the radio took over the yellow press and the train, people like Welles could defy Hearst and RCA and Ford came on top. So Ford could single-handed forbid alcohol because he didn’t drink and pay the law.
After the war, the TV and computer took over and so today the laws are paid and defined by mass-media and computers.
The robotic zeitgeist of XXI century capitalism.
Today as the robotic age comes into being, corporations dedicated to reproduce robotic workers and soldiers are becoming the darlings of capitalism. And so their financial muscle now pays the parties in power, as all great corporations become symbiotic in the task of reproducing those machines.
Thus, Obama is passing one after another laws in favor of the substitution of humans in labor and work fields. And the redistribution of wealth from people to robots starts in earnest.
Never though, except in brief revolutionary ages, America has created laws to favor their people over their machines and corporations. Moreover it has been able to imprint a massive ‘noise’ of false caring and false freedoms that have convinced the Americans, who enslave forever for those corporations, that the system ‘cares for them’.
The case of America is specially meaningful, since America is a ‘nation of nations’, with all races and cultures represented, and hence the battle for the mind of America between the ‘democratic dream’ of an equal humanity in control of his destiny that creates a world to its image and likeness, and the nightmare of a nation without limits to capitalism and the power of metal-memes, hence ruled by corporations who ‘buy’ the laws that favor their products and create a world to the image and likeness of their machines, has been determinant for the future of mankind. Now the battle seems over as laws under perhaps the most corrupted, cynical administration in the history of the US (not the Bush but the Obama administration), are routinely filled by lobbies of the leading industries of the day (health-care, drones, military keynesianism, robotic workers, etc.)
What this means basically that the future of America and mankind can be guessed as we have done for 20 years, merely following the money of corporations, which will adapt american laws to their goods. So as robots take over humans laws in favor of ‘productivity’ (expulsion of labor for capital=machines), and robotic wars and workers (drone laws) have become routine in America. Obama indeed will end up his legislature as the president who accelerated the extinction of life by robots in a higher measure than any other politician in history…
And this means that in the previous graph, ‘modern capitalism’ in the XXI century will be even harsher on the 99%, because the bottom of the pyramid, the workers and middle class manager, the blue and white collar human is obsolete substituted by the blue collar robot/chinese workers and white collar pc/Indian IT workers. So we, lower and middle class of western world are obsolete. And the system is moving, as it has been the case in the US to create the laws that will ensure robotic corporations can eliminate us and we can get into jail if we protest. Still the problem will remain and become stronger as the last age of capitalism reaches its zenith: 6 billion human beings are basically obsolete to the system. What to do with them?
Now, of course, this ‘harsh’ truth about ‘capitalist democracies’, where the word democracy is just a placebo related to the meaningless action of vote, is completely censored. So we need to do some ‘historic’ background to understand why in fact there is no real choice in capitalism between similar parties.
The anti-truths of capitalism: how an ‘slavish system’ became the embodiment of freedom.
We live 400 years after capitalist democracies were invented in Holland by the first corporation, VOC, whose shareholders became the rulers of the country and its single orange party. Those corporations ever since dedicated the resources of capitalist systems to reproduce, evolve and sell the 4 main memes of metal: money (stock-paper in holland), weapons (guns), machines (boats) and metal-communicators (yellow press). And then control societies with those 4 symbotic systems. Today when those memes are electronic the system has become so complex that the ‘memetic imprinting’ of the ‘natural, Aristotelian slave’, the human believer makes the task of revealing that ‘slavery’ and ‘lack of freedom’ of humans in a capitalist system , daunting.
People simply believe memetically imprinted and are blind to the nature of the system. Because people as any other system in the Universe can adapt perfectly to any conditions where they will act with no doubts. So people love their dictators till they die and their imprinting ends. And when Stalin, who killed the Russian Revolution and Franco who killed the Spanish one, died, millions mourned. So today we shall not be surprised that the immense majority of mankind believe in capitalist democracies – the system that will kill them. And this, though obvious for an external observer is not for an internal human, who truly believe the fundamental anti-truth of capitalism: to confuse ‘freedom’ with ‘slavery’.
Consider the silly trick of dividing the ‘same capitalist’ single-party-system (born in Holland, where there was only a party, the orange party, ruled by stockrats and aristocrats, the only people that voted till the XX century in most ‘democratic nations’, which required a minimal capital to vote) which obviously doesn’t cheat people into a bipartisan, single-system. The same party in fact, as both defend all other anti-democratic rules of capitalism. Bipartisan democracy were in fact born when the orange party exported its system to Britain (1688, conquer of Britain by the Dutch king that bought the parlament). Then a party summoned up the people who produced weapons and wanted war and the other, those who produced machines and wanted peace.
The 99% was only defended much latter by labor/socialist parties, against which the ‘capitalist systems’ have always fought and finally corrupted. And that was not even the case in America, where believe it or not, the Republican party was till the 1930s the ‘liberal party’, as the Democrats represented the South and its slave-owners. Then when the north invented the white slave and created big corporations Lincoln, an illinois railroad lobbyist founded the GOP. And till the 1960s both parties were extreme right, one represented northern corporations and the other white supremacist s from the south. Only for a decade, the democrats represented the people. And of course, their reformist leaders, King and the Kennedy brothers were liquidated by ‘capitalism’ – King within days of asking no longer only placebo voting rights but social/economical rights. So now the Democrats represent the same; the line merely is one between GOP voters, who represent mainly military corporations and add to their belief in the doctrines of capitalism their religious belief in the musings of a goatkeeper of the Bronze Age who saw a Bush burning and called him God… and the democrats who believe also in techno-utopians and are paid mainly by silicon valley companies that produce the new white collar pcs and blue collar robots that are throwing us from job.
The GOP politicos have the task to cheat the white, racist ‘biblical’ mass and have of lately also taken on the Southerners who were the field of the democrats. And so briefly the democrats added to the groups they cheat to get elected, the black and hispanic minorities. But of course, this was a short period of ‘democracy’, caused by the Kennedy brothers and Johnson’s civil rights act. Soon the party was again corrupted by corporations and so passed to the GOP a new majority that still stands, based in the fact that 80% of Americans confess to believe in the go(l)d and racist memes of the Bible.
The symbiosis of those memes – the bible, capitalism, money, racism and technoutopia – have been analyzed in other posts. The outcome though is obvious: America is again a monocracy with a 4-years cycle of voting circus to choose between different individuals who will then enter the automaton routine of getting bribes and sell laws to the biggest bidder, regardless of what it manufactures in each age.
Of course, the system sells the infantile idea that people ‘vote and choose’ the policies of capitalism, as workers and consumers with rights; but as long as politicos do not become voted/judged a posteriori after their tenure this will not be truth. The politico risks nothing cheating the people in his promises and will have on the other hand a lot of troubles if he doesn’t sell the laws to those who paid his campaigns…
So to undersand where capitalism lead us the ‘democratic vote’ is no longer relevant. What matters is to understand where the language of money lead us. And again this only can be understood with the laws of affinity of complementary systems, which in the Universe bring things that are similar in substance together. Or in other words, money values more other forms of metal than life and a society ruled by money not by the law, will be biased to create memes of metal not memes of life.
The values of money as a language of power, opposite to the verbal values of ethic, democratic laws.
Indeed, if we go deeper into the ‘systemic’, objective, biological laws of the Universe we should abandon the concept that capitalist societies ruled by money not by the law cater better to the needs of people, because money, ‘the invisible language of god’ is positive for society and gives us value and no freedom, while laws oppress us. The opposite is truth.
Those myths forget the bias introduced by the values of money, which give minimal price to life beings, the biological needs of man, and the collateral effects of machines and weapons the objects of higher price:
The graph deals with that fundamental scientific theme of capitalism – what is money and why it produces anti-life values?, an informative meme of metal, whose digital languages value reality accordingly to its affinity with other metal-memes of maximal price (machines and weapons), hence giving null value to life. We humans merely ‘assembly’ pieces of metal, as enzymes do in the lower cellular scale, following the affinity and complementarity of those memes.
(1) The extensive record of accurate predictions in news and tendencies by merely following the procedure of observing each cycle which corporations will come on top of profits, according to biological evolution, and hence which laws will be passed by them, with utter disregard of the needs of mankind, is there, laying on the archives of the Library of Congress since 94.
Capitalism though has never been imposed with reason. It is totally necessary for man to commit suicide at the astounding speed it is doing it, to have the mind perfectly imprinted by the ideological viruses of ‘techno-utopians’, ‘nationalists’, ‘self-preachers’, and ‘go(l)d believers’. Without a perfectly imprinted, manufactured brain filled with the emotional values of our ‘civilization’ of ‘dont worry be happy smileys’, humans wouldn’t proceed like a mass of lemmings towards the cliff of robotics and obsolescence with such a zeal. Of more philosophical/scientific interest is of course ‘memetics’ and brain-studies which increasingly show the mind is basically a ‘computer’ system, programmed at earlier age, with imprinted ‘sofware’ beliefs – neuronal networks that are no longer broken and so allowed the ridiculous type of beliefs ‘religious fundamentalist’, capitalist fundamentalists and people who call themselves before understanding their ‘human nature’, things like Homo Americanus, or Homo Britanicus, have as dogmas… In objective terms, 99% of what humans call ‘culture’ and ‘identity’ is just basic me(n)tal imprinting to foster their self-suicidal behavior. So humans go on doing ‘their thing’ – to reproduce, evolve and consume machines that degrade them – which for an alien observer would be so pathetic as to deserve not pity but sarcasm (suicide is always pathetic – the Universe certainly doesn’t approve or ‘resurrect’ those terminal cases as humans are becoming).
Indeed, the problem of mankind is collective. It would be nice to think the problem is only the 1% on top of the pyramid, but it is not. The problem are the ideologies and memetic structure of the brain, which reason has never been able to mold. Because a scientist only uses reason and abhors the ‘rhetoric’, violent, emotional imprinting the memes of metal use to manufacture human brains, the battle of mankind has ultimately been a lost battle since its inception, because the human brain is NOT free in its overwhelming mass. It prefers to believe the damned lies and statistics, the fantasies of anthropomorphic ideologies, to the hard facts of evolution. It prefers to live with a placebo brain, in a neoteny state as ‘animals’ do in a farm that take power and his own destiny and toil for it as a single species. So there is not ‘critical mass’ to change our future but sheeple guided by the laws of systems as an undifferentiated blind mass of believers, guided by those impersonal darwinian laws of ‘capitalism’ – of the economic ecosystem in which we are becoming obsolete, compared by ‘prices’ with machines and deemed less ‘productive’, and hence discharged…
