Socialism is nice within Capitalism

Postby Jakob » Sat May 04, 2019 9:42 pm

But no one has ever heard of a socialist factory or a socialist anything creative.

It takes more than 40 hours a week to come up with a product, more in the neighbourhood of 168. It takes obsession, a ridiculous degree of desire to realize some ridiculous-deemed idea.

I believe a product of human ambition represents the forces of evolution. These forces are, as we know, the opposite of fair. But that doesn't mean they aren't required for there to be anything at all. And this is why someone like Ecmandu wants to destroy everything. A lot of people do, very big religions are grounded in this desire.

But I am no member of such a religion, I like this creative spirit that drives mankind to, eventually, colonize the moons of Jupiter. I do not hate the fact that unequal concentration is rewarded with unequal power. I do see how it causes a lot of pain, also to myself. But the alternative is that there is nothing at all.

You don't want to see me accepting your system.

You are very fucking blessed that non contradiction is my higher power.

Ecman, we are supposed to believe that on account of your self-flattery alone?
It is true that liberty is precious; so precious that it must be carefully rationed.

We live in a post capitalist and post socialist world. Mixed economics where a third option to both is desirable.

The world needs a third position to both badly.

Socialism combined with capitalism you get social-capitalism.

Social-capitalism is much better compared to libertarian crony capitalism or Ayn Rand's zombified leftover dead cadaver cuntry that leads our nation today.

Welcome to 1930's Europe Zero_Sum. What's your next move?

Some options here others went for:

Social democrat.

Christian democrat.

National socialist.

Fascist.

Military dictatorship (sans the romanticism).

How's your Somalian love child in Canada Fixed? I was starting to worry that you might have a mid-life crisis or something and convert to Islam.

[Or, did you have her abort it instead?] If so, I bet that was an unforgettable cultural exchange between the both of you.

Next move? Well, there certainly would be a similar political, social, and economic atmosphere but with a more modern twist concerning my dream world.

Really though there is nothing to do yet other than wait for the entire political, social, and economic collapse of the West along with all the chaos, violence, insurrection, rioting, disobedience, and civil war that will consist with that.

I'm looking forward to that future destination with much anticipation and excitement.

Nothing really excites my almonds like the complete utter destruction of the current world order. Been talking about it and looking forward to it for decades now.

Sweden is what happens when you have neo-liberal globalists and communist Jews take over your nation along with radical feminism where women stop having children or families altogether in the name of professional careerism.

There's also communist non-jews, you know...

Anyway, they did find a halfway between captlism and socelism.

My bad, how's your Moroccan love child doing? Are you converting to Islam yet?

I don't have a wife and I'm unmarried.

Yes there is, but those communists don't have the bank or financial capital like the Jews have.

A balance between both socialism and capitalism is necessary, the polar extremes of both economic ideologies is destructive on society by themselves.

That's basically my strategy now, waiting for the inevitable collapse of the west readying insurrection and entertaining myself on the internet with shit-posting in the meantime.

Not much changed since you last asked today.
But thank you for your relentless interest in my family's well being.

Are you converting to Islam yet?

Nah.

I don't have a wife and I'm unmarried.

No, I'm just curious about the resident western philosopher and his exotic Moroccan wife wondering what that must be like. If you don't want to say anything more on the subject that is fine.
