A short impromptu discourse about Capitalism and Communism

Communism as we know is the struggle of the proletariats or working class against the exploitative nature of the elitist Capitalists. Communism is an economic cum political philosophy about the class struggles to put an end to class society and capitalism and the triumph of the proletariats over the bourgeoisie capitalists.

The ugly head of western capitalism has been so widespread and destructive that it caused countless wars and revolutions against capitalism and  result in the creation of the economic and political philosophy of communism of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels.

Capitalism is the unconscionable exploitation of the large majority of the working class population by the small elitist minority of the rich bourgeoisie capitalists. This is what happened in Europe and America in the industrial revolution of the 19th Century when workers were extremely exploited by the industrial capitalists and made to work long hours like slaves and animals with very meager salary and low income. The working class were made to suffer terribly hard with no recourse to justice.

That sort of selfish and immoral toxic extreme capitalism has now resurfaced in America and Europe and in many non-white capitalist countries which were once former white governed colonial territories.

Capitalists who are fair and have conscience and who  treat their workers and society well with respect and justice should not fear communism. Communism is just an economic and political philosophy born out of the inhuman exploitation of the proletariats or working class people by the heartless capitalists, the bourgeoisies.

In fact the Christians should be proud that Jesus was the first communist in this world . Jesus economic philosophy and that of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels communism subscribe to to the same belief that to have a fair and equitable society , "Everyone must contribute to the common pool according to their abilities and receive according to their needs." Of course due to the weakness and the selfishness of human nature communism philosophy must be tweaked to find the mid-way practice for the good of mankind. And this mean or middle path comes in the form of socialism.

All socialist governments must ensure that capitalists will no more have the liberty to exercise mass cruel exploitation of the working class people , the proletariats and that the proletariats must also discharge their duties and obligations responsibly for the common good of society..

Of course the society at large must be alert and prevent the governing authority from sliding into assuming the mantle of the cruel capitalists. We are already seeing this happening in America , Europe and some ASEAN countries where the elected governing officials are avariciously paying themselves out of the ordinary with sinful astronomical salaries while the people at large are made to suffer with low income and further burdened with all kinds of illogical direct and indirect high taxes and various ponzi schemes to hijack their savings. In fact these new class of governing officials are worst than the old capitalists for they just grab whatever money they want without any of their own economic output and contribution and justified it with enactment of laws favourable to their illicit behaviour. If that goes on persistently society will flounder and turmoil and instability will definitely arise. It seems a new kind of capitalism has sprouted. It is the group or herd instinct capitalist dictatorship in which many faceless pseudo capitalists join forces under the banner of a party to fool society under the guise that they are part of the democracy system.

The citizens of the world must be awakened and rise up again to take down all kinds of evil dictatorship that are against the interest and welfare of the proletariats or working class .

Well done! A least this brief may (provided they are not stubborn) clear the minds of those who have been misinformed or brain-washed, and set it straight for those who deliberately try to con the people.

Anything implemented or touched by man initially for the good of mankind, will in time be re-construed, re-interpreted and become totally corrupted, be it religion, ideology, charity or morality.

Adam Of Eve said...

All systems have weakness or weaknesses. No system is perfect. Even God's creation (Man) is not perfect. So how can the systems created by man be perfect?

All ideologies, religions, values, culture, doctrines, morals, rights and norms are flawed. Because they are man-made. As man does not have the ultimate wisdom, anything man-made cannot withstand the test of time, space and change (impermance).

This piece shows you have no true knowledge of communism. Jesus was a capitalist. Understand the parable of the talents. Extreme capitalism, feudalism, cronyism and communism are closer ideologies and are the ones that exploiting the working class.

China represents communism. Uncle Sam represents capitalism. Communism vs Capitalism today is akin to a clash of two civilisation; East vs West. The battle is still raging. Mankind will continue to seek, to strive and to struggle for a better life. The Chinese have lived under capitalism and communism. They know what is best for them.

Best site to learn about capitalism is The Ludwig von Mises Institute. Lots of free media, books, classes etc. If you want to be a good evil capitalist, and have an awesome life...because you only get one shot...I highly recommend this site.

BTW, Fun Fact: beginning around 30 years ago (in the 1990s) the Chinese began translating the entire library into Chinese especially for China. Now the BEST capitalists on our planet are the Chinese. They are giving the lazy, entitled world a lesson in "how to make money".

China loses money too. Ghost cities, a stock market pullback every 18 or so months, people going bust...but they don't care. They keep moving FORWARD The govt already said that they will allow people to failand not bail them out, which is a hallmark of meritocracy/ capitalism. Profit and losses are at the heart of capitalism. What has poisoned the west is that there are no "penalties" for failure. If you are big enough, the govt using the tax payer will bail you out.

Profit: you keep. Losses: socialised---everyone has to chip in to pay for your sins. Therefore China is economically ore capitalist than the west. Politically, China is still communist.

Which makes analysis in 2018 very interesting. The communist-capitalist dichotomy used to refer to political economy. However right now politics and economies have been DE-COUPLED. Thus you can have a politically communist China and Russia, but in both cuntries have sizzling capitalist economies generating shit-load of revenue for the states and for the citizens.

But in the west, i.e. the EU, Canada, Australia, UK....they are implementing more COMMUNIST institutions and policies: universal healthcare, welfare, state-controlled education, state-controlled/ owned media etc.

All in all, most of the world operates in mixed economies with varying elements of capitalism and communism/ or the softer version: socialism....and everything appears to be fine. (But people will still complain lah...)

So which is better? Communism, or capitlaism?

It actually doesn't matter. In the realm of politics, a cuntry's political system is an emergent property.


Their politics comes from their culture, which is also an emergent property form their history, gene pool, gene pool diversity (mixing of races), environment, climate...we're talking about incredibly complex systems interacting with each other. It takes thousands of years to arrive in the present, and no single person has control. Therefore The People Get The Cuntry and The Government They Deserve is a truism.

The political nature of the human species is a direct manifestation of our species "social" characteristic. We are individuals in our experience. But we also are drawn to others---for myriad reasons. So tribes emerge and we live in enclaves. As tribes grow...so do the social dynamics---the emergent properties here are: leadership, division of labour, some sort of "economy" based on exchange (barter), laws (to settle disputes) etc etc.

Unfortunately southerglory is stuck in the last century...like some dude in safety gear outside a dirty smokey factory "On Strike" for more money...and calling his bosses "exploiters of the common man!".😂🤣 They all get together and sing songs like:"We shall Overcome" and fly their union's flag in "defiance". 😜 Ah... the good old days....

Mate, the world has moved on. No one cares about "class struggle" any more. The youngsters, who will soon run the show on this planet, are all about social media and wanting to become the next internet billionaire or a top-earner on YouTube or an Instagram star. Like I said: no more class struggle lah!...many of the young internet billionaires started with nothing...college dropouts! (Don't laugh and pooh pooh this. I know of average people in Australia earning 10k a month from YouTube and 8k a month from Instagram. I haven't even covered Facebook or Linked In) YouTube Earners || Instagram Earners

Even the definition (and role) of big, bad, evil CAPITALISM has changed. It is no longer considered an ideology. It's an OPERATING SYSTEM

You really do not know what you are talking about. Jesus is the first communist. His group of poor followers were living like communists, sharing everything they have, sharing fish, sharing bread etc.

Jesus a capitalist? You go and wash your numbskull with dettol please. Drinking too much newater and shit getting into your head.

Capitalism or communism doesnt matter that much as both have its obvious strengths n weaknesses n imperfections reflecting the imperfect striving human nature. Good wise righteous leaders make a big healthy difference to people's well being while evil selfish egoistic cruel leaders harm people greatly. Some leaders have limited seasons of usefulness. Some over-stayed. Some are diligent at youth n too proud at old age. Some are foolish at youth but wise & kind at old age. Some are stubborn n foolish all their lives and never changed. All kinds of people maketh this world.

sharing things is socialism not communism. communism is one type of hair style, one type of dressings, one type of everything including leadership. its the most silly and boring ideology created by (yes)an angmo aka WHITEMAN and will destroy innovation and productivity and makes everyone a zombie living creatures. God created all of us different and with different talents and abilities to do wonderful things for Him. also do not forget that commie chinese killed and imprisioned many christians chinese.

Ⓜatilah $ingapura⚠️ said...

@ b

That's right. I don't know if Jesus was the first commie, but a commie indeed he was. "Self sacrifice", "imperfect selfish humans must be converted", "give up everything and follow me"...all these parallel Marx's ideas, who (ironically) hated religion...so he started one of his own 😂...and Marxism has many followers to this day! (Everyone should read The Bible and The Communist Manifesto. They are both hilarious and written by people who were definitely in a comedy mood, or mentally unstable or HIGH ❗️...or ALL 3! 🤡 )

However, like typical smart operators, Christian religion had to change to keep up with the times. Enter the Prosperity Gospel. 🤑🤑 Smart conmen aka "preachers" managed to change the meek, kind and humble aspects of Christianity into a LOUD, OVER BEARING modern dogma preaching "prosperity" (God wants you to be rich), and the modern Christians flocked to this "good news" faster than flies racing to a fresh piece of shit. It was so popular that the idea of the Mega Church emerged....where preachers and their large entourages had fancy cars, real estate, private jets....baby, they've come a long way from "gentle Jesus meek and mild, Lamb of God". 😇🤣

So as I'm not sued for defamation... you will know I am referring to our Singapore megachurches. If you haven't been, you should go. It is amazing. There is one preacher who puts on MAGIC SHOW. Another preacher---female---fancies herself as a "pop star", and as a result has literally thousands of fans. Then there is this handsome dude who dresses in the latest gear...leather jacket whatever...and sells his books all over the world. If you go to America, Home of The Capitalist Jesus 💰💲and the megachurch, you will find our Holy Singaporean's book at every airport book store...so if your plane crashes and kills everyone, you can rest assured of your ascendance to heaven, simply because you were reading about Jesus! 💀⚰️

Jesus was a communist. But like China and Russia, He has changed, because his followers made him! 🤣😂

Jesus was not communist but a socialist lah. He does not care how much one is earning or how he earns (he friended prostitutes and all kinds of people) but he or she is advised to give 10% away to charities or churches to stop them from becoming extreme capitalist.

Failure of western economies to recover from the 2008 crisis has led to a revival of interest in Marxism. Western capitalism has now become synonymous with predatory finance. Leading western economies are succumbing to an overgrowth of debt and shrinking prosperity. The way China shapes its future is receiving world wide attention. The future may become even more unequal as technology continues to replace labour and leave the masses unemployed.

Mat Salah said...

Jesus is a good role model for communism. No capitalist airs. Frugal and never preach prosperity gospel to attract capitalists.

b said...

Frugality is not communism. You can look at putin xi and most commie leaders. They are all rich in assets. What communism did is to sell a stupid ideologies to silly people who believe that communism will solve the problems of extreme capitalism, freudalism, cronyism when in fact it is the biggest con scheme of all times to transfer assets rights to just a few guys aka extreme capitalism.

Mat Salah said...

Frugality is the hallmark of communism. 600 million Chinese communists were lifted out of poverty with the blessing of Jesus, a clever communist who practised frugality.
