Or Borrowing from far and future.
I had no major problem with capitalism until I realized how the beast actually works. I don’t share destructive non-libertarian views of communism or the world views of the abrahamic religions and Islam in particular. All of these dangerous ideas have a viral code for dominance and that is exactly why they have been dominating large parts of the world.
Now what I see about capitalism is frightening me even more than its key rival ideologies. And that is its simple code:
Capitalism does not deliver its massive value out of thin air. It largely borrows it from far in space and time.
And these two problems are one.
Far in space could be wherever it outsources the suffering to make a little local joy. Whether it be ethnic conflicts, African mines, animal farms, species in the oceans or cheap child labor economies, such blind treatment of these resources by the capitalistic machine is prone to overexhaustion. And this will mean that what’s far comes closer and closer. You see it has already sneaked in to our safe bubbles and we should get the message.
And what far in time means? Future. That too gets closer and closer. I think we all agree on that. So what can stop us from facing a deserted earth full of angry human apes killing each other?
Nothing. Literally nothing. No reform, no software upgrade nothing but the shut down of the machine at least with the current model.
This choice is inevitable, or else this greedy machinary will shut itself down but only after destroying all of us together.
