Thinking about Sundays post 'the love of money is the root of all evil'; has got me thinking more about the great lie, and of course you will probably be guessing - what’s that?"
Well what I'm referring to is the great lie being told to the working class people everywhere in the world; that there is a solution to the crisis of capitalism which is ripping through all the so-called great nations of the world. It sounds like this; 'when the upturn comes' or 'the best way to solve the credit crunch' or 'arguments about better regulation' for the banks are all knowing, consciously misanthropical (big word) diversions of all Politicians heading the attention of ordinary people away from reality of a total and catastrophic failure of the capitalist system.
"The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie - deliberate, contrived and dishonest, but the myth, persistent, persuasive, and unrealistic. Belief in myths allows the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought." John F. Kennedy
I came across that quotation, and it fits with my argument that capitalism can only survive and continue by making the most of lies and myths along with driving workers into the ground, and Kennedy would have known that as he was never a true friend of working people, despite the myth that has grown around the man since his death.
The left reformist fanciful and capricious idea, like a summer breeze, of making the bosses pay - is a cul-de-sac!”
Rapacious in-your-face greed deserves total contempt – but even stripping all their money away will not solve the crisis. It would be a start of course. But the profit making system of Western capitalism is Bankrupt.
It has to go – in its entirety!”
Only ending the monopoly capitalist rule of the planet will change anything. The sheer pant-wetting panic of the ruling class in October 2008, when the banks failed and the governments of the world were only hours away from closing down the cash machines told the true story.
Capitalism is a system of massive contradictions which can only bring the world eventually to complete collapse and disaster, in a sudden domino implosion. Only by what they call “quantitative easing” was the ruling class salvaged from utter financial chaos and the real terrifying fear of social and political unrest – which may have taken a more serous form of breakdown and revolt against their imposed social order, had it not been for the insane printing of money to flood the markets. But it cannot last for ever, for the underlining reality of capitalism is that its inbuilt contradictions’ will always bring it back to disastrous collapse and failure of markets.
