The Cuckservative Glorification of Corporatism and Oligarchy

Adam Smith would be mortified at how corporations own every important avenue of the economy

Cuckservatives glorify corporatism with almost as much cuckolded deference as they do the womyns who enslave and mock them. Saiga12boy writes The New Modern Man:

I hate the conservative glorification of capitalism. Which is such a key part of the left-right dichotemy. Conservatives are supposed to get on the bandwagon of supporting the ultra-rich, “They’re just good hard-working Americans!” while they’re outsourcing our jobs, shipping in illegals to steal our jobs here, promoting women in the workplace to destroy our families, corrupting our food with sugar and GMOs, and many other evil things they do.

He’s absolutely right, and he means corporatism which cuckservatives mislabel capitalism. The current system is not free market capitalism at all, and the conservatives who defend it as such are totally clueless. The current economic system is a total corruption of the free market ideal. Once corporations were created and given the same status as living, breathing people under law, and monopolies became the norm, with the tentacles of each extending into and dominating virtually every important avenue of the economy, it was over for the little guy.

Suddenly, people providing for their families by mixing their labor with the product they produce got replaced by infinitely rich bastards dominating labor through the sheer force of infinitely deep pockets. They got so powerful they took the government out of the hands of We The People.

If corporations were people, they’d be utter sociopaths as they only thing the head of the beast (a CEO) thinks of is how to maximize profit for idle shareholders. This means lowering wages of workers, and obliterating the competition through everything from takeovers to bribing government officials to create barriers to entry into the market.

Maximizing profit for men on the board of directors who do nothing except demand more for them and less for everyone else means ruthlessly pursuing perpetual, infinite growth (Western civilization’s founding ideal according to Spengler) which eventually metastasizes into an economic cancer. The beast ultimately kills itself because it can’t continuously cut wages for workers, and expect them to produce more each year (ignoring the fact workers are human beings with limits and not profit producing machines) and yet at the same time expect them to lavish money on luxury and spend more purchasing its products.

Saiga12boy continues, with an apt analysis of how the corporate system (which is diametrically opposed to true, free market capitalism) is actually morphing into a Communist system as heads of corporations and government officials are in bed with each other and play a game of musical chairs as they rotate into and out of the public and private sectors:

We’re supposed to be against the evil commies and be glad we won the Civil War when In reality our rich overlords decided that we should accept all the social policies of Communism and instead of using it in an attempt to benefit the people as a whole, should be used to make them richer than they were before.

Preach on.

Conservatives need to stop kissing wealthy ass.

Indeed, the current American socioeconomic system of oligarchy closely resembles Communism in that yes, technically there is “private” ownership, but the means of production are in the hands of so few individuals and there is such collusion with the government what we actually have is Communism by any other name.

Rather than the State owning the means of production outright, the people who own the politicians also own the means of production. Here at TNMM, we call it the corporate-government complex.

If you want a level economic playing field, corporations (monopolies by any other name) must go. Cuckservatives won’t like that one bit.

Video of the Week: Social Pathology

Unlike leftists, we should be willing to at least try to hear and understand all sides of an argument, theory, or idea. This portion from the film Zeitgeist: Moving Forward is definitely presented with a left bias.

It’s Video of the Week for a reason, though. John McMurtry has a point about how the “Money Sequence of Value” has completely decoupled from the “Life Sequence of Value” as the West’s economic system behaves less and less like a true free market economy (one could argue we have not had a free market economy since the advent and domination of the corporation) and more and more like a metastasizing cancer. This system disorder is detailed in his book The Cancer Stage of Capitalism.

In short, the current economic system seeks to maximize profit rather than to maximize quality of life. It does this at the expense of those working to power the system. McMurtry also has another point. As GDP rises, economists argue it reflects a rise in the quality of life of a nation. However, if health care profits are rising, what does that really reflect? A rise in the number of sick and dying people. This means it is not profitable to cure disease, but it is profitable to create more and more health problems among the human sheeple in the population. Perhaps that’s the reason our government has been lying to us for 40 years, pushing the myth of the dangers of saturated fat and cholesterol?

Perhaps that’s why when one ventures down the rabbit hole he finds nothing but lies from top to bottom?

Creating problems to create profit (rather than solving problems!) also would explain why we are lied to about any number of other issues – from the global warming carbon tax scam to the ozone layer “hole” to weight loss to human trafficking to feminism. It’s also profitable to create a police state as the old rule of thumb is, pass a law, create a business. The system needs, nay, can’t function without creating problems with people’s lives in order to generate profit. But, the problems it creates come at the expense of the quality of life of those working to power the system. This is why the West finds itself in the midst of the modern day cluster fuck it’s in.

In that regard, McMurtry has a point when he says the current corporate-dominated economic system has devolved to become one of the most bizarre systems in the history of human thought.
