This kind of question is not likely to lead to anything constructive unless you're careful. The world is full of simpletons who want to reduce the complex and variegated phenomena of the worlds social and political bodies to some kind of simple rule: "capitalism is bad" or "regulation is the problem" or "first world consumption is just too high."

We shouldn't be content with any of these- they're cheap and ideological.

If you really want to get anywhere you need to start picking examples of problems you see in the world and then studying them in detail. You need to learn how historical forces created the situation. You also need to study different theories that can provide frameworks for contextualizing those historical details into a coherent (or not- sometimes there just isn't one) pattern.

It's all messy and case by case. Capitalism (as Marx defined it) certainly creates a lot of serious problems, but you can't just reduce all the world's poverty and all the world's military conflicts to capitalism.

Human nature =/= Greed for money

Academically bunk and reeks of anti-Semitism. Get off Youtube and 4chan and start going to the library you freak. This is garbage.

>>608426827

Human nature in the reigning free-market microeconomic theories is a ridiculous parody of human experience which should be immediately obvious to anybody.

The idea that we can rank the things we want in some sort of concrete way, or that a consumer's willingness to pay for an object represents its value (subject to blah blah constraints) is beyond stupid.

It's shocking that people buy into this shit. The microeconomic view of human nature literally reduces the human being to an algorithm that sorts preferences for goods and services with prices. It loses all of its meaning outside of the market place, and is completely oblivious to the social, moral and aesthetic dimensions of the human being.
>>
>>608426556

This is also a stupid argument I'm sick of seeing. Why?

When applied to any historical ruling structure prior to capitalism, it refutes capitalism (ie it only argues for the status quo so long as the status quo can be shown to be better than previous systems. It makes no assertions about proposed systems that have not yet been implemented).

It deludes people into thinking that "with a little hard work" they can also be at the top of the pyramid. This naturally causes them to forget that the few stones at the top need all the ones beneath them to have something supporting them and to simply stand upon.
Those "stones" at the top will never allow the ones below to reach their lofty heights, or forget their place.
Theres simply not enough room and that suits their needs perfectly
>>
>>608429862

I'll tell you one thing-- "with a little hard work" you'll realize how hysterical and stupid your picture is.

For god's sake you've got to break out of the "EVERYTHING IS HIERARCHY" thinking. Hierarchical structures exist, clearly, but they don't account for everything.

Seriously though, at what point up the money ladder do you just stop getting better stuff?

There will be a "when the shit hits the fan" situation. Is just mathematics. The sun throw a solar storm some months ago that wpuld be killed all our electronic systems. Our "luck" was that the storm was launched to the other side. There will be one that will hit us and our beloved civilization will be kill. Imagine for a moment a world without electricity For months. The cars will be kill, no electric trains, no food transport... How do you think it will end? There is also others situations, like Yellowstone or another supervolcano that will kill our civ too.

Then whe this shit happens, after the chaos and massacres, there will survive only the strongest and smartests, in a society of hunter-gatherers adapted to this new world, the natural state of men.
>>
>>608430902

Look it's not even like that. A rational person looks around, sees places where the status quo is failing, and tries to come up with solutions and ways to implement them.

Marx is useful for dismantling some ideas in capitalist apologetics (taxes as theft, for example, which becomes absurd after studying Marxian labor exploitation- a very solid, foundational idea with the kind of quantitative appeal that you'd think most modern economists would find attractive).

The old 20th century idea of proposing some utopian configuration and implementing it via revolution was a disaster, but that doesn't mean there aren't disasters of capitalism, or that all such disasters are beyond fixing without acquiescing to a utopian ideal.

>>
>>608431827

No. My own thinking is that a mostly anarchist social organization with organic communities that interact voluntarily and cooperatively provides a kind of utopian cardinal direction for us to steer our ship towards.

Obviously all these wars and famines, all this poverty and needless death for want of dollars is stupid and should be diminished.

We get our hands dirty and fix these things one at a time as they come. When bigger systemic causes are unearthed, we have to make bigger , more radical adjustments.

It's arduous and complicated. No simple term should suffice.

Civilization is just a brief moment in the history of humankind, and still it is killing our planet and our own species. Is not about being a catastrophist, is just looking globaly how works not only our civ but also nature and earth. Is impossible that this system will survive. I had hope in science but every year you can see how science doesnt exist to help humaniry but to help corporations and the actual capitalistic system. All our benefits from it is a second hand product derived for the profit of such corporations. This civilization cant survive to one of the situations I said (solar storm, super volcano eruption, asteroid impact), and maybe it even cant deal with a real pandemic. Humans were hunter-gatherers from millions of years, civilization is just a moment and is this short time we are fucking everything. Alea jacta est.

Science is no more inherently evil than a hammer.

Personally though,I believe that even with the shitstorm that may come,humanity and civilization will not go extinct.
Life will just become much shittier.

You'd think it would have happened by now.

>>608432704

This. Greed starts propelling itself. Even on a lower level, millionaire bankers that make hundreds of thousands a year, STILL want a bonus that is a quarter of that extra while lower-level employees are getting laid off. Not because they need that money but... they just want to.

There will be islands of civilization that will survive, no matter what. We're spread too widely, and in too great numbers to all die or be thrown back to the middle ages. Besides... I doubt the only people who are seriously considering this possibility are a bunch of fags on 4chan.

>That's when you become a philanthropist and give your money back to society so you can experience the final ego reward in the ladder, social praise for being such a great caring guy.

It's not necessary in the slightest to give up most of your money.

Look at celebrities.
They're not particularly great people,and they're loved and idealized by everyone.
People know loads about them,think very highly of them,etc.

On the other hand,those that dedicate their lives to philanthropy and the common good never achieve such fame
>>
>>608432903

Eh, I used to eat this kind of rhetoric up. The truth is that the critics are correct: there is a perfect lineage from Malthus to the modern environmental alarmists (ex: Ehrlich) who see the end of the world looming stealthily behind every just-extinct tree and every million more tons of carbon emissions.

I'm not saying global warming isn't real or that it isn't a serious threat to existing societies. I'm not saying that biodiversity doesn't matter or that we should do mountaintop mining.

I'm just saying that you need to do more than shout "we're all gonna die!!!" if you're serious about addressing these things.

Sure, civilization will end. But I see no reason to believe that end is inevitable, and I certainly don't see how crying about our "die being cast" over lattes is going to do anything about it.

I am confused. Do you consider that a bad thing?

Imagine the richest people in the world all suddenly deciding to work together for the greater good.

No it's really totally useless. It doesn't invigorate environmentalists: it makes the whole community depressed and sanctimonious.

Environmentalists need to get rid of the Millienarianism-- mostly because it's based on a general assumption that the (often remote) possibility of catastrophe that exists in various systems somehow combines into a guaranteed and very-near extinction of civilization.

Everyone's heard this crap already: "the end is near, but there's still time if we move fast... but nobody's moving so we're probably fucked."

That's not something that gets anybody out of bed in the morning.

Granted,bleating on about it depresses a society.

But at times,isn't that sort of thing called for?
To attempt to make people understand the gravity of the situatinthay may be in/heading towards,even if it's depressing?

Perhaps you are right that it is not that effective a measure,but keeping one's trap shut about it seems to be no better at best.

Their is no such dichotomy between socialism and capitalism like that.
Their exist a multitude of other systems as well.

It's worse than that. That pyramid suggests the AVAILABLE knowledge, but the assholes at the bottom aren't geometrically smarter than the schmoes at the top.

George Carlin: "What if there really IS a shadow government... and THEY don't know what the fuck they are doing, either?!"

Lack of transparency does not promote working together well. It's bad enough in a government that is more or less a public affair: imagine the kind of confused and panicked vipers' nest a really secret conspiracy would be.

I think we sometimes imagine there are a few all-powerful, all-knowing masterminds behind everything, but I don't think so. I think it's worse. I think the corporations have become emergent life forms themselves.

This is such a tiresome portrait of religion. Ironically enough it probably goes back to Marx and his influences.

We have plenty of reasons to know that religion can be a liberating force. It can liberate the individual in too many ways to list, and there's ample testimony to that.

It can also liberate society if you investigate movements like Liberation theology, the Catholic Worker, Buddhist activism in Vietnam, Tolstoy's Christian anarchism, a just Islamic polity, the list goes on.

If you're not convinced it can be realized, have a look at Reinhold Niebuhr. He'll tell you about religion functions as a guide but not a destination for social justice.

>>608426316
>Why is capitalism ruining the world?

...because it is not sustainable. As has been demonstrated, it can last for a "long" time (depending on how you define "long") but it cannot perpetuate because it demands resources that are not infinite. Since we need resources to live and capitalism thrives from consumerism, we are all encouraged to consume faster than we can restore (if we can restore at all).

There will come a point where capitalism simply fails to work but from what I see of human nature, those at the top of the pyramid in your model will maintain their control over the masses at the bottom because the masses are trained through lies of individualism and so live scared, unaware of the power they can wield when they join forces. Here in the west, I am left baffled as to why we have not begun a revolution against the ruling classes yet since so many of us are struggling in the current economic climate. But what it comes down to is we allow ourselves to be fed bullshit by the media to keep us frightened, we buy into individualism and largely are forgetting how real community works, trained as we are by social media, consumerism and paradigms enforced through politics, media, social care etc.

While no one person will admit to being part of "the masses" as described above, it is the very fact that as individuals we know our own traits, but as part of the mob, that it precisely who we all are.

So, that's why.
You're welcome.

We dont have time. They have to have at least chance to see it. It is my responsibility. Their is in what they are going to do with this.

>>608441607
Yes we are. We have so much potential but we are attacked on so many level not to be aware of it.

Exactly. In a best-case scenario, the whole will become a brain...

...Actually I guess that is possible. Hmmm.

They would get angry or laugh. They are outrageous.

By 'quiet' I meant there wouldn't be an actual agreement, everybody would just stop cooperating. It happens.

>>608442050

But attacked by whom? Are the attackers realizing THEIR potential, at least?

Okay, self governed democracy. What if the self governed democracy got so large that all members could not have fair say in whatever democratic meeting they held. Do you think maybe it would thereby be more practical to have, oh I don't know, a system of representatives for regions to participate in these democratic meetings? Hypothetically. Shit, I think we're on to something...

Well,just like in a democratic society,where everyone comes together and makes decisions about who to lead them,why can they not make decisions about having no-one lead them?

Moreover,it is not lawlessness.
People do not need leaders to come to decisions and enact laws.
Again,just look at a democratic election.
They come together there to decide things.

Why can they not decide other things,besides picking a bunch of people to make decisions for them?
