REPLACE CAPITALISM WITH A PEOPLE-ORIENTED ECONOMIC SYSTEM
The intrusion of capitalism into various societies internationally, has left behind unmistakeable and profound paths of exploitation, alienation, oppression and human suffering.
In the prevailing American-led “global capitalism” success is measured by the extent to which human economic agents obtain commercial profit, ‘status’, and ensuing power, irrespective of human rights.
This creates a political economy that is fostering dystopic conditions for crime; and political extremism that manifests in “terrorism”.
The United States (in association with its “western” allies) via its capitalistocratic agenda, is thus creating the very conditions for worsening “terrorism” that it wants to control and defeat.
Ethically, capitalism must be replaced by a rejuvenated economic system. Such an economic system must DEFINTELY not be “communism”, or its variant “socialism”, which are really forms of ‘state’ capitalism.
The quality of survival of human beings globally, relies on the replacement of capitalism, as a means of organizing the Economy. Capitalism is measured by misleading indicators of growth, that ignores worsening human rights related conditions.
The affirmation of human rights internationally, relies upon the creation of a rejuvenated people-oriented economic system, which embraces social justice, and the principles of participatory democracy.
Capitalistocracy has relied in part, on spreading propaganda that the only alternative to the prevailing “capitalism”, is a form of ‘communist dictatorship’, or an “inefficient” socialist system. In so doing, capitalistocracy seeks to avoid debate on the social ethical legitimacy of capitalism.
The book ‘Capitalism is Not Democracy’, that is cited in ‘Recommended Readings’ below, presents a people-oriented economic system as an alternative to forms of ‘capitalism’.
‘Capitalism is Not Democracy’ presents a rejeuvenated human rights inspired economic system that serves the quality-of-living of human beings, without prejudice.
The prevailing American-led so-called “free market” context, “socialism”, and “communism” are all forms of capitalism. These systems champion the interests of “owners of capital”, whether among corrupt Big Business elites, i.e. in the United States; or a corrupt state bureaucracy, i.e. Communist China, that ignores vital human rights areas.
Capitalistocrats seek the insatiable pursuit of commercial profit, which can support their crass-materialistic self aggrandizement, and sought “power”. Strategies inclide the execution of racism (including employment discrimination that creates urban areas of social despair, poverty, alienation, homelessness, and crime); genocide, forced labour including child labour, military occupations, and repression, (including police harassment and abuses in the name of “law enforcement”).
