When I continue to read Leftists ranting about the evils of "capitalism", which they delusionally imagine rules this world, I wonder what it would take to awaken them to reality.
There is no capitalism. We live in a world of massive bureaucratic surveillance, regulation and monitoring - almost everything is controlled.
The winners don't compete - they are allocated. The losers are absorbed into the system. There simply isn't anywhere for "capitalism" to operate!
There is now just one vast, interconnected bureaucracy comprising all the smaller ones, interlinked.
And of course this uni-bureau is totally, without exception, run by Leftists. So billionaires are Leftists, all significant global and Western leaders are Leftists, all mainstream political parties are Leftists - because all are spirit-denying materialists, this-worldly utilitarians and sexual revolutionaries.
Democracy is bureaucracy, so is egalitarianism, so is multiculturalism, so are all radical transformative programs... All share an underpinning bureaucratic imperative.
Can civilisation escape the bureaucratic cancer? I think not. There is no pendulum swing. When the parasite grows large enough, it will kill the host.
Post bureaucracy is post civilisation.
It will happen either way; but maybe it is for the best (though I won't survive mortal life to experience it).
But for Heavens' sake, let's hear no more about "capitalism" !
