II. THE WORLD AS IT IS, BEYOND PLACEBO MASKS: DICTATORSHIP OF CAPITAL AND CORPORATIONS.
“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.” Amsel Rothschild, 1838
If Ford, resumed the meaning of speculation and its uselessness for the productive economy in the initial quote on the I Financial Crisis, (his ultra-censored, ‘The International Banker’ is still the key book to understand the transition of power in America between the protestant biblical culture and its twin, older, father culture, which today rules with iron fist in velvet glove the western world), Mr. Amsel, the ‘International banker’ par excellence resumed with an astounding clarity the ‘inimical’ contradiction between Democracy and Capitalism, the dictatorship of bankers and corporations over politicos and citizens, who are mostly unaware of the nature of the system they live in.
What Mr. Rothschild did not understand however is that ‘power corrupts absolutely’ and so to hold, as banks hold 95% of the global credit compared to a meager 5% of money issued by governments in the form of notes, is not enough at the peak of the speculative crises caused by the cre(dit)ation of a form of money. Greed cannot be infinite but the wish for it is. And so instead of finding the perfect balance that Mr. Amsel found between hidden exploitation, profit sharing with the rest of the social elites (politicians, aristocrats, the military-industrial complex, corporation owners and managers, etc.) the speculator crosses in the next phase of the crisis that red thin line of ‘absorption’ of the monetary mass of a society that brings a growing number of people to the limit of survival, where they will suspect that the system is inimical to their interest, and it is perfectly owned.
The pyramid of power of ‘Free Market’ Democracies.
In the graph, a classic of the pre-war age, we can see the initial phase of capitalism and its hierarchical social castes:
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.
How ‘Free Market’ 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 las.
This self-evident truth is also denied. Politicos, whose only job in a pure capitalist system like America is to cheat the people on voting them, so people feel they ‘direct’ the system and then sell laws to the corporation that pay more, are still admired and respected and voters still ignore and get surprised that the politico NEVER delivers his promises. Bottom line is that in such a system the politico is just another ‘celebrity’ employee to distract the audience and that is his ‘fun’ job with the masses that adore them. But that is NOT his job in capitalism. That 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.
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.
In that sense to explain the crisis in its full, multiple, parallel sides we must abandon the straight-jacket of ‘financial economists’, which only talk of ‘money’ and have a religion called ‘capitalism‘ that prevents them any critical assessment of the ‘system’ and that of politicians who only talk of ‘nations’ and ‘war’; because ultimately that means the causes of the crisis (overproduction of weapons, money and machines) under such dogmas, become the ‘solutions’ implemented by politicos and economists, aggravating it.
Yet this is not possible because Bankers, with the enormous quantity of money they have created, destroyed the power of politicians and put an end to Democracies, following a trend which in fact exists since the birth of capitalism.
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, during the 60s r=evolution under a social-catholic president, 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 the democrats who believe in peaceful techno-utopia 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.
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…
Why politicos follow suit is obvious: in a perfect capitalist system, in which the language of social power, money, is reproduced only by corporations no longer by governments (laws of deficit zero) politicos are no longer rulers of governments but employees of lobbies of the most prosperous corporations who pay their campaigns and ‘retire’ them after office. Thus their only duty to the voters is to ‘cheat’ them with rossy dreams to get elected and then they start the ‘real business’ of modern realpolitiks, which is to create laws that cater to the dominant companies of each cycle of the industrial r=evolution. This is due in part to corruption, in part to ignorance, in part to the increasing lack of power of governments, which are denied the rights to invent money (today invented exclusively in e-money platforms by financiers) and so must pander to companies and markets.
In the 80s in America and the anglo-saxon world, thanks to the work of two qisling politicos of null knowledge of the economic system – Mr. Reagan and Mr. Thatcher; and in the 90s and 2000s in Europe, misguided by Brussels Lobbies who created a European Central bank that would work only for bankers not for their people and will NO LONGER print money for states, only for private bankers, western politicians gave the rights to print money for which wars have been fought and revolutions won, back to the private bankers that created the hard core capitalism of the XIX century. And then one day they woke up and realized they were just employees that depended on the two systems of information controlled by bankers, audiovisual media and finances, to talk to the public and pay his campaigns. Ever since the 70s after the coup d’etat against Nixon and in the 90s after the Treaty of Maastritch, the western world felt into the dictatorship of bankers that have ended tragically after a century of brutal exploitation in I and II world war tragedies.
Here we shall analyze their recent control of western democracies after the ‘scientific age’ of social sciences (60s and 70s) a by-gone era which must be considered the height of the European-American culture of a Middle class that encompassed the majority of the population and rightly under Keynesian policies, and with the right to print money on the hands of states, taken away by qisling politicos (Reagan, Thatcher, Maastritch treaty) in the 80s and 90s.
– Speculators obliged the president to end the gold standard as the first speculative program on commodities and stock raised its prices; which in itself could have allowed new deficits for a welfare state but merely started the deregulation of all speculative markets and the possibility of inflationary prices, created in those markets.
– Then they gave a lesson to him and all politicians, showing they could easily topple the presidency (watergate silly-nilly scandal about some tapes and microphones, which had been put up by FBI for decades without the slightest repercussion, but now mass-media blew up to show its power muscle). So once politicians realized that TVs’ imprinting with emotional news of the human sheeple, can eliminate even a president – as now it has happened with South-European presidents, politicians who need thereafter expensive Tv campaigns and financial credit lost their freedom, becoming ‘new celebrities of the new media’ dependent on the financial-media system – as it was the case in the last cycle of fascism when 3rd rate radio voices took power in Europe.
On that view the so much vilified Mr. Nixon, would come up, as history settles, if it is ever written by mankind again, as one of the last ‘real’ presidents of America with any power; as he would resist in principle the end of the go(l)d standard, assailed by speculators, trying to maintain the financial power in hands of the state; he would show an independent international policy for the betterment of his country, reducing the military-industrial complex, with his detente and end of the vietnam war; he would enforce racial equality laws and established NEPA; and he would stage a final fight for the due respect to an office that was after all the last resort of power against corporations left on the western world, dismantled for such insignificant peccadilloes as a couple of microphones and a couple of lies, which pale compared to the routines of the cold war – consider indeed the so-called Kissinger effect, still observable as a life-dent of 4 millions in the Cambodian life pyramid…Though one could say that perhaps Nixon was the man that changed the game and yet, when he did all for their Masters, he was thrown away as it happened with Mr. Saddam, the Doberman trained against Iran, abandoned when he asked for his historic old provice, the Kuwait bone.
It is the new ideology of the world: all for corporations and its machines, nothing for humans, with a 1% of stock-holders and managers, obsessed for profits achieved displacing mankind and putting in its place machines in fields of war and labor. While politicians become mere celebrities that will follow the libretto as they need the money of corporations to win their elections.
And so you get the drill, common among all celebrity politicians of the Western world – you alternate between a retarded right wing believer in the white matter imprinting of capitalist gurus, who goes full speed and a corrupted, charming left-wing weakling who wants to be ‘forgiven’ for his youth ideals in favor of humanity and so curiously enough passes more extreme capitalist policies that the right wing believer wouldn’t dare, as the programmed sheeple would oppose him (Mr. Zapatero, Mr. Tony Blair and well… the so-called more powerful man of the world, LOL :).
This is the real who is who in this tragic comedy on the future of a nation which once, no long ago, was the embodiment of hope for the human wor(l)d. So long Mr. Nixon, you will be remembered as a lesser eviL, now that the comedy is turning tragedy…
And so now capitalism, a culture that passes as a science and every nation practices is squeezing the middle class, the sheeple, of their salaries and jobs to pay usury credit and bail outs and speculative taxes to bankers, with a zeal proper of Samurais, who once said of taxation till starvation of their sheeple, ‘the peasant is like the soya seed, the last squeeze has the best taste’.
Needless to say in the ‘communist world’, evolution of social sciences is forbidden by decree now for almost a century since Mr. Trotsky & Mr. Lenin insights on the evolution of industrial empires was censored by Mr. Stalin. While the resurgence of Biblical economics and Abrahamic, Anthropomorphic religions ensures that evolution will not be considered in the analysis of machines – in fact not even the Nobel Prize can be conceded to evolutionary scientists, since Mr. Nobel was a pious biblical believer… This irrational outlook of economic sciences moreover cannot be even discussed, because also by ‘decree’, bankers have no religion, their cultural dogmas are translated into ‘classic economics’ and its mathematical equations and for centuries the entire discipline has been busy creating an ‘image’ of rationality on the bases of never arguing the ‘important themes’ about the relationship between man and machine, wealth and health, happiness and social development. And yet the Kondratieff cycles of the economy kept happening. And so as long as politicos, economists, entrepeneurs, historians and social thinkers do not take their analysis seriously, humans will be as clueless and lost in the flow of time on the causes of its extinction, as any other animal species has been before extinction, with the difference that only us have seeked with such a zeal their own demise.
The coup d’etat of 1992 (Maastritch)-2008 (Tritchet-Draghi): The ECB
If the coup d’état against Nixon ended political power in Europe, today the ECB is destroying democracy and the European culture based in human goods proper of a welfare state. And to do this, of course camouflage both of the people who are doing it in the name of bankers and of the reasons why they are doing it, in the name of the ‘religion of classic economics’ are at play.
Indeed, the ECB is not telling us that Mr. Draghi, of Goldman Sachs is just a private banker, taking advantage of a public position to profit its partners of past businesses and future partners when he gets a reward position after its tenure; nor he explains his position in the biggest lobby of private European bankers, the 35, nor he explains how he dares to provoke coup d’états against elected presidents, as he did in Italy, sending letters to Mr. Berlusconi, menacing not to buy Italian bonds unless he followed his policies (and indeed stopping his work as the Bank of Italy, till Italy’s usury rates arrived to 7% obliging him to resign and putting the President of the Trilateral in Europe, Mr. Monti in power). Now he is doing the same with Spain.
The steps of the take over in Spain are simple and all too evident for those of us who have worked ‘the markets’ in the past. The elements are the same used in America and other countries. It requires the control of both, the Financial and Informative system, printed in any case with the same electronic platforms. Two type of experts are at play: public bankers and private ones, both the makers of markets and the Agencies that qualify the quality of assets. All must though belong to the supranation of capitalism, the International Banker. And the game must be played with the acquiescence of corrupted ‘right wing politicos’ that should pretend to defend the nation while they merely expect to receive a bigger cut. Absolute corruption will facilitate the process.
Thus in Spain the process, started with Zapatero, but accelerates after a big scare ‘a la italien’ on the market of bonds made the Spaniards vote en masse for the ‘Party of the Bankers’ (P.P.) – giving themselves willingly to the people that had caused the crisis.
How this was achieved? The population largely ignorant of anything that has to do with money (since economics is not taught in schools and only classic economics makes it in the MBA curriculums) was, terrorized through the mass-media bought in the stock market in the 90s by the International Banker (El Pais, a pretentious left wing newspaper, now property of Liberty Insurance, a San Francisco Company is a case-example). So they believed bankers were the ‘experts’ that would save them. The elite was bought with Investment society laws in which they pay only 1% of taxes. And so they thought, being just decadent aristocrats accustomed to parasite for centuries the South-Americans, that the International Banker was its friend.
They have been friendly indeed for two decades in which the International Banker bought the big national companies of Spain, the likes of telefonica and Repsol, to use them as the ‘backdoor’ to penetrate South-America, fed up with the original harsh capitalism of Wall Street with his courtyard. Thus the Spanish market skyrocketed but this was at a heavy toll. The companies that belonged to the country with Franco, a fascist dictator, which in any case is always better than being a colony of a predatory foreign banker lobby, were sold to the private sector, who raised the tariffs till the point the spaniards are today the people who pay more for their bill of electricity in the world. And with that money extorted from the people they bought South-American utilities. But of course, what was hidden is the fact that now all those companies with Imperial power in South-American have the International Banker as the biggest shareholder. So all the profits end up as usual in The City and Wall Street. The Spaniard, a simple trustful, warrior-oriented action man, quite similar in thought and behavior to the American felt here into the imperial belief those companies are theirs, as the American has fallen into the Imperial Belief his mercenary armies are fighting for him, not for Israel.
So once this was achieved, the upper castes of Spain surrendered to the International Banker. And willingly gave all its power to Europe, and the ECB. Then when the PP took power it ridiculed the Bank of Spain . Its Spanish president was sacked, and so it was the Economic ministry key civil servants. In their place Mr. Lindos, ex-boss of Lehman brothers – yes believe it or not; this the Americans perhaps would have not swallowed, Mr. Fuld as Ministry of Economy for America?! He in turn dismissed the entire roaster of economists within the Spanish Central bank and decided they were not ‘experts’ enough, so they brought two of the most corrupted Agencies of Wall Street to qualify the debt of the banks in Spain.
And once this was done, they essayed ‘a la Paulson’ a big theft for the banks, asking 2% of the Spanish GDP in a loan to the ECB that will be paid by the entire Spanish population with higher taxes – money for banks like Bankia, where a ‘retired’ banker, with a pension of 3 million euros, affirmed it would be enough to make it prosperous.
All those banks who have been used by right wing politicos and ‘experts’ to sack billions should merely be closed and the so called FROP, an institution that in Europe pays the small client their deposits, paid those deposits and the people on top of the bank, judged.
But that would be an economic system that cares for the people, not one predated by the International banker with the purpose of obtaining usury and taxes from the common people.
Now, this was a sign that Spain had fallen under the rule of the usurer and so the ‘Market’ – the same people, the same nation, knows Spain will never be able to pay beyond the usury interests and it asked for higher interests for years to come. And to obtain this taxation the entire welfare state, the trade mark of this extinct democracy is being dismantled.
The naive Spaniards though never go to demonstrate to the ECB but blame it all in the politicos. And this is due obviously to the antiquantum paradox. No information at all is delivered in Europe or America about the nature of markets, who owns them, how they extort taxes with speculative schemes.
So the coup d’état of the ECB in the name of the International Banker is real and the consequences for European daring – from living in a social democracy to live and work to pay usury rates for bankers is now completed.
Nothing of this of course is said. Mr. Draghi, affirms, to work on account of two dogmas of classic economics: that inflation must be low and to maintain it low money must not be produced for free to pay the deficits of the welfare state. But why classic economics feared inflation to convert it in dogma? The reason was to maintain the wealth of the ultra-powerful group of bond holder, bankers that from Rothschild to Gross has managed the public debt of nations, to loose money as bonds do not adjust to inflation. Yet a scientific economical analysis of inflation shows that inflation is not only harmless but positive and necessary to create money as a language of information that starts the productive process. Thus in the same manner we talk more than we act, there must be constantly new monetary orders to kick the economic process. And only nations with sound inflation like China and Turkey (10%) grow at similar rates. An important part of a real theory of economics must therefore explain the historic origin of many pseudo-scientific economic arguments and the selfish agenda of profits and power that guide many political and economical actions.
But of course, the ECB’s constitution was written by lobbies of private bankers NOT of social scientists, in the opaque process of legislation taken place in Brussels – another demonstration of the anti-quantum paradox. So as a product of realpolitiks and power not of economic science, its way of manage the economy of Europe will always cater to those privileged castes NOT to the people of Europe.
For that reason the ECB does NOT buy bonds in the primary market as other central banks do. Instead it delivers billions to banks at 1% interest, for them to buy to states at 7% and get a ‘clean profit’ of 6% at no risk. For that reason the ECB does NOT redeem bonds in the secondary market, where investors sell ‘used, old bonds’ at discount rate, saving states massive amounts of money, as other central banks do. Instead it buys them to private banks, at a huge premium charged to those states. So for example a private bank buys greek bonds at 40% face value and the ECB buys it to the private bank at 80% value, doubling its profits in a single take.
And for that reason it does not produce money for free for its states, as many other nations do. Since money is a language of information that must be produced first and then deliver orders to create the type of economy voters have ‘elected’ through its politicians. In such real democracies, states print deficit money to pay their policies while markets print money for corporations to reproduce their machines. And financial legislation is crafted to balance both sectors from the perspective of what is better for mankind. But such scientific design of finances, proper of the 70s (welfare state) is today only followed in Eastern Asian Economies (China, Singapore, etc.). In Europe, our financial system is born of tribal warfare and social class struggle. So private bankers, now that have taken thanks to the ECB, control of that sovereign right from all European nations create money not for free for those states it supposedly represent but for free for banks which then ‘loan it’ to states as a debt, charged on top with usury interests.
Monetary orders substitute verbal information: credit creates reality
The conclusion is obvious: in ‘Free Markets’, where the only free citizen is the corporation with rights to credit, the voter really has no saying at all in the legislative and cre(dit)ative process of reality.
In such Systems (old British Empire, America today, increasingly the EU dominated by Brussels lobbies), 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 social democracy (the only system deserving that name) back in the 70s. Yet today increasingly the job of 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 language 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. That gives you a feeling of the sorrowful ‘state of affairs’ of the Western World.
Indeed, compare that unscientific ‘capitalist’ way to do economics with the quantitative easing of governments such as Turkey or Brazil or China, which use it to pay for free their welfare state or as the British have done an Olympic Games. Indeed, China grows 10% annually because it produces its own money to generate scientifically a sustainable economy, producing the goods their people need. And so does Turkey, both under a verbal, wor(l)d values based government – the kind of people ‘our mass-media system’ owned by financiers love to hate – communist and muslim brothers. I will not be the person to defend those primitive versions of ‘verbal ethic values’ which a social democracy can provide with much more freedom. But the point is that even those very primitive versions of ‘social, verbal values’ are far better in the way they treat the 99% than any version in which man becomes just a number, a digital cost in an equation of productivity that makes us expendable. (The deeper reasons of that negative ‘pricing’ of mankind in monetary values, will be studied in the next post).
The result is the astounding difference between the rates of growth of economies ran for the profits of the majority of the population (Asian countries), seemingly less democratic than ours, compared to the corrupted western democracies, masterminded by corporations and financiers who misuse credit for their own profit, backed by politicos, which legislate for corporations, not for the people.
Of course, the consequences of designing an economic system for the profit of a few privileged, as the ECB is doing, is the ruin of the 99% and a far more acute economic crisis in Europe than other countries, as the 1% will never produce with that stolen money as much as the 99% if it had credit instead of debt.
Fact is to pay the billion plus dollars earned by Mr. Gross speculating against the Euro, the 36 billions earned by Soros in his career of speculation against the Pound and any other currency available, to pay the 3.6 billions earned by Mr. Paulson working with Goldman that sold with AAA ratings toxic mortgages while Paulson betted against them, to pay the 800 billion $ the other Paulson obtained from the American tax payer, to get the 2% of Spanish GDP obtained by banks with the whole country paying for it, in brief to become one of those ‘highly admired’ parasites of the Western Middle class, many millions of Americans and Europeans must loose their home, pay exhorbitant taxes, loose welfare benefits and die in waiting lists of Hospitals that cannot operate them before their final hour. And this is the ‘Darwinian reality’ that the predatory nature of our financial system hides with ‘damned lies and statistics’.
And so an important part of a real theory of economics must explain the historic origin of many pseudo-scientific economic arguments and the selfish agenda of profits and power that guide many political and economical actions. Since those ‘myths and statistics’ do have therefore a function – to hide that Darwinian ‘struggle’ of history and present us a fairy tale about the 1% who own and master the world; which not only likes to be on top but likes to be loved and feel just. The result is the fairy tale of ‘classic economics’, perfectly described by one of the first social scientists of the Industrial Revolution, Mr. Owens who noticed that… ‘in London saloon economists are busy inventing complex arguments that cater to a reduced group of stock-holders without having ever visited the mills; but I have directed a factory and know how hard those workers labor and the inhumane conditions in which they live’.And so Spaniards and Italians have become colonies of the usury profits of the ECB bank, and have to destroy their welfare state to pay that unneeded usury. But this will never be explained in ‘biological’, sociological Darwinian terms. Mr. Tritchet or Mr. Draghi, from Goldman Sachs will never tell: ‘I work for the private banks not for the people of Europe’. They will use ‘expert talk’ with a lot of ‘damned lies and statistics’, as classic economists do.
Along the pages of this web, we shall continue revealing bit by bit the astounding ‘smartness’ of the entire body of classic, ‘Biblical’ economics, as <em>an informative </em> ‘superstructure’ <em>, which is the Masterpiece of Informative Control and Predation invented by the human mind. Since for the reader to understand how ‘information preys over energy’, we shall require to study briefly the laws and properties of information.</em>
Nothing has really changed in this crisis respect to the abuses and frauds of XIX century capitalism, since the banking industry has always been more akin to the military industry in their way to control societies than to the ‘scientific’ open rational selfless approach that we expect of real scientists.
And so we can redraw the pyramid of capitalism of the previous paragraph, according to the new situation of workers and soldiers that are becoming ‘machines’.
The obsolescence of human beings: the equation of modern slavery.
We are thus being replaced as a Species, by the selfish memes of metal and this means that first we shall get poorer and poorer, and the middle classes will enter the lower world of poverty proper of most of mankind in the Industrial age (albeit closed in the past in 3rd world countries).
This means we should revise the ‘pyramid of capitalism’ of the previous graph.
Indeed, in our capitalist system there is an absolute law, the syntax of money, and that is the law that now degrade us. Let us remember it. Money is a digital language that values less men than metal and compares them with a price/salary. And so as we become more costly than machines our price makes us obsolete.
indeed, the consequence of the higher metal-value of machines, in terms of price (not of ethic, human value, which will NOT allow in a world ruled by the law the substitution of workers by machines) is the main economical equation of capitalism:
Man = Wage = Price = Object.
The equation means that humans with no value will get minimal price/wage and machines maximal price. So capitalism will reproduce and cater to machines for profit, not to human beings and its worthless survival goods.
It also means humans can be bought for money as objects are, and compare to them, hence obliged to compete with machines and weapons and fields of labor and war. This equation originated modern slavery handled by the first corporations in the first Dutch democracy. Of course those slaves were not ‘citizens’; but then when ‘slavery’ evolved into cheaper part-time slavery and humans were leased by corporations to save the money spent on housing and feeding slaves (white slaves), citizens became part-time slaves, and this provoked the socialist movement. And yet after the II world war and the fall of the wall, not even this self-evident truth of capitalist ‘democracies’ – that a worker has no rights and it is a slave while at work is forgotten.
Systems have social classes, but they are efficient and relatively just.
Social classes do exist in all systems but are never so unequal as they are in our ‘3 worlds’ society:
– All systems and subsystems of power, from corporations to nations to religions to cultures, have at least two classes, the informative/head class which controls the languages of social power (neuronal cells in living organisms, black holes in gravitational-based galaxies, bankers in economic organisms ruled by money, priests and politicians in human societies ruled by words), and the reproductive, body/working class.
And then there might be two invisible upper and lower classes that do not truly belong to the organism: a ‘3rd energy class’, ab=used by the organism’ and a ‘super-class’ external to the organism, which might control this and other organisms with a different, faster language. This might be positive or negative to the system.
For example in corporations you have the stockrats – the superclass that controls multiple companies; the managers, the information class, the workers, the reproductive class, and the external energy, raw materials and… consumers, who provide matter and money to the corporation.
In a love religion there are priests that spell the eusocial message of love of the prophet (the super-class, which is however positive to the religion, as it uses the same verbal language) and the mass of believers – all mankind. In corrupted religions however there is an energy class (the heretics and non-believers) abused when the corrupted religion is in power, and external languages that corrupt the church, military memes, which create inquisitions and go(l)d-money, which chooses certain believers as best.
In military nations, there is also enemies and an external language, weapons, which create a caste above the law, the aristocrat or today the army.
All this is needed for you to understand why our society is corrupted. Ideally it should be guided by ethic laws, but it is ruled by an external, supranational caste, the International Banker and speculator, who rules all our societies and politicians with money. This is how all systems end up being by ‘natural selection’ to become efficient.
So today the ‘Siamese human system’ of ‘capitalist’ + ‘democracy’ have degenerated and both languages, money and laws are controlled by corporations and their lobbies. Yet this must be hidden, and so politicians are more like celebrities that cheat the people into feeling they have power and then they cater to the owners of the system.
If our society were properly designed as a democracy, the government of the people, the opposite would occur: the laws would control money; as in all efficient organisms, which are not Siamese bicephalic systems, both languages would be controlled by the same system (so in the body, neurons control both nervous impulses and chemical, hormonal messages). We do have two parties as placebos of freedom, yet both bicephalic heads obey in capitalist democracies the money, and so only when governments have right to issue money as in social democracies in Europe in the 70s, we have a working democracy.
But of course, as I said you are imprinted by the fiction that you only exist as a free life-based individual, and the system caters to your natural will and all those ideas that there are classes, people-castes, complex systems is a confabulation theory, a socialist meme, a lunatic rant, and now you ‘must’ abandon this web that is poisoning your ‘pursuit of happiness’ over all attempt to know the truth. But if you keep taking the red pill, Morpheus will wake you up from your REM American/global dream to the nightmare of capitalist truths, in which the welfare goods you need to survive will always be scarce. Because the system, its company-mothers of machines and the financial corporations and 1% of ‘stockrats’ that rule them, are not interested in you.
Monetary orders substitute verbal information: credit creates reality
In the graph, the real structure of power that cre(dit)ates our future with money orders. 90% of our lives are spent either working in companies, consuming machines or following biological drives NOT following laws and governments’ orders. Thus bankers and corporations Not politicians create, cre(dit)ate the world with monetary orders; and those orders value machines and weapons more than life:
The financial-military-industrial complex is a very complex system with 3 basic type of orders:
– Salaries, which select humans or machines in a competitive field of labor, under the equation man=price=machine; so if a machine is more productive than a human being, we fire the workers and increase the ‘productivity’ of the industry with new machines.
– Bonds, credits and campaign money and bribes, which control political systems, governments and politicians. All of them therefore protect the monopoly of power of bankers and corporations that print money in stocks and beg for that money. There are two type of politicos – those who are paid by industries that produce consumption goods and prefer the peaceful substitution and obsolescence of workers and humans to machines that atrophy us, and are generally termed as left wing or democratic parties, and those who prefer to run amok faster for profits, which are paid by war industries that have the highest profits as the values of metal-money give weapons the maximal price. Those are conservative, war parties. Today they dominate due to the increasing obsolescence and lack of credit of humans, the industrial panorama. Finally there are the intellectuals, ‘the experts’ that sanctify the system.
In the past they were military inquisitions that promoted religious war and go(l)d churches that told us money was the invisible hand of God. Now it is a bit more sophisticated. They use equations to the same end. On the bottom of the pyramid there are beings without price, nature, aliens, 3rd world. Those people are outside the economic ecosystem and live in the freedom of chaos, without money to give orders, get goods and survive. This bottom will increase constantly as a barrier of machines, robots and monetary orders separate the informative castes of societies – those who invent the language of power – from the bulk of human beings obeying those orders.
How money creates reality against the historic ecosystem, how money orders reality? Through a process that we will define with a new verb: cre[dit]ation. It means that you can create reality with credit. If you can invent money, that is if you have a credit, then you can give orders to people with that money, they desire, given its value, which can be changed by anything else. In this manner to have credit implies the right to create reality: cre[dit]ation means that credit is creation, credit creates reality. So those who control credit, who can invent money invent reality. It happens that credit is today not in the hands of human beings, not even in the hands of governments, which have “laws of deficit zero”, that prevent them to create credit, but in the hands of company-mothers and banks. They cre[dit]ate reality inventing first money very easily with null-cost paper, in stocks and notes, which are by law money. They have an enormous privilege over society, since nobody else can invent money merely by going to a place called the stock market and saying they have something of value. It does not matter if it is truth or not.
By law, obtained through political control companies have obtained from societies that privilege: to go to a place and obtain free money in the form of shares. Since “stockrats”, the people who rule companies, and rule stock markets want to speculate, to invent money. So any excuse is good. In the beginning of stock markets, they even used flower, tulips, and tea. You could go to Amsterdam with a tulip and say, it was worth millions of guilders, and people said it was. Today we do so with internet companies. You go to Wall Street with a diskette of binary instructions, as Netscape did, and you get 7 billions of dollars in a day. Then you can spend that money creating the product and the machines you want. So today everyone has a Netscape Browser in his computer. Yet any other person who wants to open a business not related to the main industries of the stock-market (technological and machine industries) cannot invent money, neither get credit. So we cannot invent reality as human beings. You cannot go to the stock-market with a project for hospitals, schools, farms, resorts for holidays, environmental care, and get 7 billion dollars. Even if those projects are far more important for the welfare of mankind. Only company-mothers of machines can do that. Why? Because stock-markets are controlled by people, “animetals”, who worship machines more than they care for mankind. So they credit a world for their machines of energy, and information.
We have given to company-mothers (or rather they have taken from mankind through acts of war and bribery) the right to invent money in stock-markets and banks. They have taken that right from our human governments that used to help the reproduction of Human Goods, with deficits (inventing money in notes).
The result is that we work for such companies. We give them our life-time, through work, which they monopolize because they have all that unlimited money they invent with shares and notes, to pay for our life, our time. We have given them rights to make laws that cater to the benefits of their machines, because we allow legally them to bribe our politicians, our human leaders. We have given them the right to be bad with humanity, and to destroy our energy and information, because we do not ask them any political, economical and legal responsibility, thanks to unjust laws such as the law of anonymous societies, that concedes anonymity and non-legal responsibility to the people that work in those company-mothers. We have given company-mothers and machines the rights to be our top predators, our masters, to be the owners of our times, our laws, and our goods.
At the same time we have denied our best human species, the best writers, and ethic men, the priests and lawyers that used to rule our societies with verbal mandates, the rights to construct our ecosystem. We have made all verbal institutions weak. Instead, we have decided that money, a bit of metallic information, should be controlled and reproduced by company-mothers in stocks, and banks, which undervalues human beings (since money values machines and weapons more than Human Goods) the right to invent reality.
The Myth Of Justice: metal Rights Against Human Rights
We talk of a dictatorship of companies who control the invention of the language of power; money and laws. Credit controls societies. A true democracy means that the control of those languages of power would be in the hands of citizens and governments. They would support laws related to human rights over property rights. However, this does not happen. We talk of the myth of “justice” and “democracy”, that company-mothers of information (mass-media), politicians and lobbies promote. The myth basically “ignores” monetary orders, and “concentrates” on the freedom that man achieves by “not obeying verbal orders”. Under such myths, we believe humanity is not ordered by wages and prices, but by “verbal mandates”. Economists do not explain properly how money is invented by companies in stocks. Companies, by creating stocks and bonds, create a new form of money. In this manner money constantly goes to “credit” the future, and those human activities that are not valued in stock-markets (love, education, food, health), are “discredited”.
Let us then close this post with an analysis of what has changed in capitalism in the XXI century, which it can be observed in the next graph and the post dedicated to the ‘end of democracies and the American dream’ – namely the middle class and the lower classes of mankind are today obsolete to machines…and capitalism has no piety or empathy to them… Their dogmas prevent it. So Capitalism must eliminate mankind to continue its evolution. And this fact will be the engine of the damned lies and statistics of the XXI century.
The pyramid of capitalist social classes and its changes in the XXI century.
The previous graph has 20 years. It was first part of an exhibit of ‘conceptual cubism’, in my earlier ages as a ‘silenced voice of the memes of life’, when I thought through art we could also explain the tragic future of mankind. It was done in NY in the earlier 90s, and published in the pioneer book of this model, which also forecasted the 2008 crisis with enormous detail (The extinction of man, Bookmasters, Ohio, c.94) and somehow appeared years latter in an exhibit on conceptual art at Six Flags Brooklyn museum. And yet it reads quite as it was done today. There was not Star War system in 2000, but of course Missiles kept evolving and indeed they are becoming ‘terminator robots’. There is not yet a massive radiation of robotized, guneyes (guns+cameras), but we are very close to that radiation with mobility (drones) that will establish finally the automatic control of human life by a future ‘Matrix/Intranet/Metal-earth’ brain. The pigs of the center, and not they were not meant to be the PIGS of southern Europe but the middle classes, on the other hand have been cut off their credit earlier that I expected (as I thought capitalism wouldn’t be so brutal and prefer a milder road to avoid social unrest; but essentially this future designed under the presumption that capitalism and its memes of greed and violence and the evolution of machines would continue unabated is the world we live now in. And the key to the graph is the obsolescence of the poor and middle classes substituted by computers and robots. So the question is what we are going to do with them? My take 20 years latter is that we will be on the ‘storm’ of this crisis with damned lies and statistics, its noises and 1% on top trying to appease the masses with ‘pan et circensis’ till one day, the process of evolution of machines reaches one of the 3 thresholds of extinction, the Singularity at CERN (2014), the metal Nano-bacteria (2030s) or the awakening of military A.I. (2050s). And then suddenly one day mankind will have a few hours to reflect and wake up to its extinction (CERN singularity), or a few months (Nano-bacteria) or a few years (war of the A.I. terminator machines). But then it will not have any longer the future on its hands. Who can avoid that future? Certainly we, the X generation, didn’t. The few of us who tried were silenced. I see no hope. At this point of my mental evolution, I think as Marx or Weber before me, this ‘iron jail’ is unbreakable, but in a world made of probabilities, there is always room for a miracle.
In the graph that opened the post, we observe the structure of capitalism in the beginning of the XX century, when humans were still needed to vitalize weapons, so they were consumed in I world war at the tune of 20 million young humans, consumed by gun-machines, to increase the profits of the Vickers’s, Krupp’ s, Nobel’s and Schneider’s factories.
In the graph above, we show the structure in the XXI century, when the bottom pyramid of capitalism, human soldiers, human workers and middle classes have become obsolete.
In the XIX century Capitalism still needed workers=reproducers of machines, which sustained all the ‘parasitic’ informative/neuronal classes of the economic ecosystem, whose function was merely to ‘invent’ complicated arguments, sophisms and ideologies that ‘cheated’ people, in believing the system makes them free. There were also middle classes (still eating, as managers of the companies) and on top the ‘stockrats’, owners of stocks, racketing the profits and enjoying the good life. Those were then, as always mostly belonging to the millenarian banking dynasties that invented money and invested it in corporations. Yet this type of capitalism imploded after two world wars. In the XX century, weapons industries could no longer ‘consume’ colored ‘inferior people’, as the world was ‘civilized/colonized’ already. So they had to use their own workers to consume weapons, after the 29 crash of excessive reproduction of credit money and electromechanical machines. And this brought a threshold of ‘evil=anti-life’ behavior, which Europeans could no longer tolerate – namely the extinction of their culture by the most aggressive capitalist nation of the age, at the head of the electromechanical wave – Germany. So a more just distribution, social-democracy, was installed in Europe, allowing the state to reproduce some money to provide the human goods that had no value in a capitalist system.
Today though this mixed system has been destroyed by a new crisis of overproduction of memes of metal, e-money, electronic pcs and robots that act as blue and white collar workers. So we enter in the final stages of capitalism, as human workers and consumers are substituted by white collar pcs and blue collar robots, except in the sweat shops of Chinese human robots and IT-Indian Pcs (the only economies that still growth). On the other hand, banks have invented electronic systems of speculative money (Bloomberg platforms) that allow to invent money for free just jacking up the value of ‘future prices’ of stocks and commodities, or impose their policies to governments playing with their currencies.
So capitalism confronts today a new dilemma: the 3 final scales of the bottom of the previous pyramid, middle classes and workers are being substituted by mechanical workers and consumers (as robots will consume cameras, platforms, cars). What to do with them? Increasingly only the 1% on top of owners, ‘ideologists’ and ‘herders’ (politicians, priests of go(l)d churches, stockrats), have a ‘job’; albeit on the long term also expendable… The rest is bothersome, unneeded, a surplus, an added cost. In the previous crisis, this meant they were consumed in wars.
And this is again the solution which is implemented increasingly on 3rd world countries, its dictators and our armies, as we did in the XIX century colonial age. Now we use poor nations as targets of our robotic weapons, while in the 1st world, banks keep exploiting the system, workers are unemployed and must be controlled with future police robots. So basically the 99% of humans are becoming obsolete and are becoming ‘parasites’ of the system that must be eliminated. How the system will finish them up? As long as humans run the system this poises difficult problems. But as the system becomes an automated planet of machines, during this century, the end of capitalism after a century of social struggle, fascism or revolution, seems clear: memes of metal will substitute memes of life an mankind will be eliminated.
In the meantime it is to be expected that the parasitic classes will keep producing more damned lies and statistics. Politicians will talk of new forms to create unemployment, liberalizing the market of workers so companies can speed up firing workers and putting robots on place. Mechanist scientists will keep receiving the bulk of the money of the system to reproduce and evolve the robots that will eliminate mankind. Stockrats will keep receiving all the rents for not working, and affirm with their legendary cynicism that unemployed are lazy people that do not want to work. Experts will receive prizes for never talking about reality, and so the surrealist nature of capitalism, as the essential suicidal ideology of the human kind will be covered.
And of course, for distractions we shall still have go(l)d churches and other forms of inquisition of thought, ‘pan et circensis’, and 3-dimensional TVs, so humans can be kept cheap with trash food and virtual realities in the ignorance of their future on the slaughterhouse of war.
Living off the mean, ignorant 99%: how humans choose ‘willingly’ their self-destruction.
‘It must be noted that men with bad instincts are more in number than the good, and therefore the best results in governing them are attained by violence and terrorisation, and not by academic discussions.’
It is easy to implement a solution to the crisis based in a global Deal that promotes the creation of welfare goods, ‘butter’. And yet every nation is promoting the ‘gun’ solution of Keynesian militarism and cuts to the welfare state that only promotes the wealth of the 1% and the destruction of the democratic and social rights of the 99%. The solutions to the crisis and the design of a perfect, rational, sustainable world based in the promotion of the welfare, biological goods that are positive for our life as a species and the ‘choice’ and pruning of the goods of the industrial world according to its utility to mankind, are easy to implement, readily available and perfectly sound. So why we do not implement them? The answer is unfortunately within us – the human psyche and the lack of intelligence and ethics (informative and social skills of survival) of our species, those who rule us, and those who obey them…
It would be in that sense to write a ‘clean’, ‘positive’, fairy tale of rational solutions to the crisis that nobody will obey. But this blog is more concerned about the truth and the explanation of why ‘things happen’ as they do, given the anti-quantum paradox that ensures null distribution, censorship and rejection of the system for a humane solution. Plainly speaking the future is designed with ‘languages of information’ by each species, but the human species uses its languages, digital money and words in a twisted manner in such a form that it profits the mechanical species and the corporations that live for them. And yet, this is the astounding paradox, humans believe to be acting for their future, in their favor. How this paradox is possible?
How corporations are able to get away with murder (the gun’s solution) – how their politicos convince most people to vote their own self-destruction? Thanks to the fact that most people’s ethical and intellectual IQ is well below the minimal level required to understand the system. In essence, the economy is an organic system with two elements, the ‘linguistic’ economy of money that gives orders to the physical economy of production, to start up the productive economy. Thus money is like words a language easy to reproduce with digital numbers. In fact, it must be constantly invented as words are to kick out the actions of the economy (or your personal actions caused by your thoughts). So ‘deficit’ is natural to the economic process.
When companies invent money in stock-paper and e-derivatives though the propaganda-press of corporations call it wealth and a ‘bull market’ and it is considered positive, since that money will be used to make more machines which are ‘always good’ in the technoutopian discourse of wealth. When governments or people invent money (handled by the state as a salary or unemployment benefit) to kick out the productive process of welfare, demand goods (as people will buy food, health-care, housing promoting those goods) it is called by the corporative P.R.ess deficit. And so people think this is wrong. Moreover people are told that money is ‘difficult to create’ and you have to ‘pay it back’. They don’t even understand the difference between an informative, inflationary language (money, words) and a physical productive action. So the system merely explains the German block-head or American clueless voter that ‘governments cannot invent money’ to pay for the welfare state and create jobs for them, but only corporations must invent money for their robots and machines.
They dont understand that is all ABOUT THE CHOICE OF WORLD WE WANT. Either a world based in human/life goods and jobs which governments must pay and people must pay with deficits, inventing money, or a world made to the image and likeness of machines that the capitalist system pays with money invented in stock-markets. The false choice is presented between ‘evil’ (a human world invented with government’s money that caters to the 99%) and paradise (a world of machines invented by corporations owned by the 1%). So the 99% moved by ignorance, meaness and arrogance votes to commit suicide and give all his rights to the 1% represented by people like Romney who probably think surprised, uau, they are really stupid, how can they believe all those damned lies and statistics? …
This process of mental degradation and loss of rights that is happening to the middle classes worldwide, started in the 70s when the advanced North-European/US model of unionized, socially aware, non-religious, scientific management of history, was scrapped by corporations who moved South into a violent, ignorant, non-unionized New American Bible belt, whose bronze-age, primitive, tribal comprehension of history, we thought gone, has become now the ‘new American civilization’, ready to create the apocalyptic future their bronze age biblical set of mind expects. We though cre(dit)ate, create with credit the future we wish to have. Thus the prophecies of Millenarism and robotic sci-Fi will become truth NOT because it is the only possible future, but because it is the future we, moved by greed and technoutopia, want to have.
