The predatory capital project and its partner the imperial project are fast running out of the fresh kill zones they require in the killing fields they so euphemistically called the “new world” or the “third world” Marx clearly predicted that there would have to be a massive expansion of the predatory beast into the rest of the world, and that colonialism was a vital organ in the cancer riddled monster. But that is where he finished despite the clearest warnings from Bakunin and many many others Marx failed dismally to see the extent of the failure of the dictatorship of the proletariat. The task of erecting that tragic nonsense into the “red bureaucracy” was really left to Lenin who then perfected in his view the ultimate system. However, the baby always was going to grow up to be the worst red bureaucracy ever imagined and effectively forced the capital project to redouble and massively increase its only hope. That hope was to control the minds of the rabble to such an extent that not only would they as usual be required to kill and slaughter anyone in the way of the capital project in places like Latin America and Asia but that ultimately they could be relied on to kill one another in their search to please and maintain their hegemon masters.
This process has come to be known as the capital democracy, where everywhere you can see that people are pressganged into the mutual slaughter of fellow citizens and actually feel that there is a divine right to do so. What the elite elite know only too well is that the system of producing materials that are completely unneeded and unnecessary is founded on delusion and that those presently allowed to work and earn could be replaced by a far smaller group working anything up to 20 hours a day to keep the elite bank balance in order. Controlled and endless war then become an acute question of survival for the elites and their slave Corporation managers. The dining tables of the elite remain untouched the crumbs that fall get smaller and smaller the only game in town is to kill or be killed. That is not what Darwin saw in the natural environment at all but we will be told it was over and over again. It is at best a perversion of the natural order and in fact counter evolutionary to the extent that extinction is the only result.
It is not a matter of a call to arms or revolution that has been a proven failure it is rather a call to inaction and no support for the elite structures. In other words the Ghandi principles at their fullest extent. Anything founded on violence starts with a violent position and continues that until it decays and dies because it no longer has any of the human oxygen required in its lungs to survive. The real choices are not that scary after all. The paradox so well put that power rests in opinion will be seen to be true but will vanish if and when people simply accept their fate and their children’s fate on the winds of savage and callous indifference blowing through the capital and imperial projects, that have become the two headed hydra.
The only solace in this situation is that extinction has no favourites and spares no foolish doctrines, it’s one in all in, there is no choice on the slide to the end. Whatever you believe in or would like to see happen it can be assumed that mutual destruction and slavery is probably not an option. So there is a need to look at what you value most. If what you value is contained in the present system the hope is that you are correct, because if it is not then you may need to have another look at and consider other alternatives. Perhaps there are methods of looking after one another properly and adequately that are yet to be thought of. But there are basic principles that can never be overlooked. The resort to violence, war and custody is no way to deal with proper, informed and reasonable thoughts, it never has been and never will be.
“It is the only movement which not only carries on the fight against the many evils of present society but also tries to prevent the dangers of dictatorship of every form and shape, which can only lead to the worst slavery mankind has ever experienced,” (Rudolf Rocker Crompond NY June 1947 and appearing as an Epilogue in Anarcho-Syndicalism Pluto Press 1989 London) George Ikners ikners.com a WordPress site.
