Fox News, December 20, 2019: Home Depot co-founder Bernie Marcus blasted Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., over her attacks on wealthy Americans, which Warren continued in Thursday's PBS Democratic debate. Marcus said Warren, who Forbes reported as having a net worth of around $12 million, likely didn't work up the corporate ladder the same way he did as the son of impoverished immigrants in Newark, N.J.
Slavoj Žižek: Democracy and Capitalism Are Destined to Split Up
Philosopher Slavoj Žižek argues that our current brand of global capitalism is quickly outgrowing democracy and that a divorce between the two is inevitable. This leads to an array of social and geopolitical concerns regarding the public commons. These problems include but are not limited to ecology, biogenetics, finance, neo-apartheid, crisis management, intellectual property rights, and personal freedom. Žižek touches on all these topics and more in this epic delivery of political and social theory.
Transcript: Well people often ask me how can you be so stupid and still proclaim yourself a communist. What do you mean by this? Well, I have always to emphasize that first I am well aware that let’s call it like this – the twentieth century’s over. Which means all not only communists solution but all the big leftist projects of the twentieth century failed. Not only did Stalinist communism although there its failure is much more paradoxical. Most of the countries where communists are still in power like China, Vietnam – their communists in power appear to be the most efficient managers of a very wildly productive capitalism. So okay, that one failed. I think that also and here I in a very respectful way disagree with your – by your I mean American neo-Keynesian leftists, Krugman, Stiglitz and so on. I also think that this Keynesian welfare state model is passé. In the conditions of today’s global economy it no longer works. For the welfare state to work you need a strong nation state which can impose a certain fiscal politics and so on and so on. When you have global market it doesn’t work. And the third point which is most problematic for my friends, the third leftist vision which is deep in the heart of all leftists that I know – this idea of critically rejecting alienated representative democracy and arguing for local grass root democracy where it’s not that you just delegate to the others. Your representatives to act for you, but people immediately engage in locally managing their affairs and so on.
I think this is a nice idea as far as it goes but it’s not the solution. It’s a very limited one. And if I may be really evil here I frankly I wouldn’t like to live in a stupid society where I would have to be all the time engaged in local communitarian politics and so on and so on. My idea is to live in a society where some invisible alienated machinery takes care of things so that I can do whatever I want – watch movies, read and write philosophical books and so on. But so I’m well aware that in all its versions radical left projects of the twentieth century came to an end and for one decade maybe we were all Fukuyamaists for the nineties. By Fukuyamaism I mean the idea that basically we found if not the best formula at least the least bad formula. Liberal democratic capitalism with elements of rebel state and so on and so on. And even the left played this game. You know we were fighting for less racism, women’s right, gay rights, whatever tolerance. But basically we accepted the system. I think and even Fukuyama himself is no longer a Fukuyamaist as I know that if there is a lesson of September 11 if other event is that no we don’t have the answer. That not only is liberal democratic capitalism not the universal model and is just a time of slow historical progress for it to be accepted everywhere. But again try now in Singapore and other examples of very successful economies today demonstrate that this, let’s call it ironically eternal marriage between democracy and capitalism it’s coming to an end.
What we are more and more getting today is a capitalism which is brutally efficient but it no longer needs democracy for its functioning. That’s my first point. My second point is that the problems that we are confronting today we can list them in different ways but my point is they are all problems of commons. For example, ecology it’s clearly a problem of commons. Nature our natural environment is our commons [TRANSCRIPT TRUNCATED]
Slavoj Žižek is a Slovenian philosopher and cultural critic. He is a professor at the European Graduate School, International Director of the Birkbeck Institute for the Humanities, Birkbeck College, University of London, and a senior researcher at the Institute of Sociology, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia. His books include Living in the End Times, First as Tragedy, Then as Farce, In Defense of Lost Causes, four volumes of the Essential Žižek, and many more.
Capitalism is... and this, almost I'm tempted to say is what is great about it, although I'm very critical of it... Capitalism is more an ethical/religious category for me. It's not true when people attack capitalists as egotists. "They don't care." No! An ideal capitalist is someone who is ready, again, to stake his life, to risk everything just so that production grows, profit grows, capital circulates. His personal or her happiness is totally subordinated to this. This is what I think Walter Benjamin, the great Frankfurt School companion, thinker, had in mind when he said capitalism is a form of religion. You cannot explain, account for, a figure of a passionate capitalist, obsessed with expanded circulation, with rise of his company, in terms of personal happiness.
I am, of course, fundamentally anti-capitalist. But let's not have any illusions here. No. What shocks me is that most of the critics of today's capitalism feel even embarrassed, that's my experience, when you confront them with a simple question, "Okay, we heard your story . . . protest horrible, big banks depriving us of billions, hundreds, thousands of billions of common people's money. . . . Okay, but what do you really want? What should replace the system?" And then you get one big confusion. You get either a general moralistic answer, like "People shouldn't serve money. Money should serve people." Well, frankly, Hitler would have agreed with it, especially because he would say, "When people serve money, money's controlled by Jews," and so on, no? So either this or some kind of a vague connection, social democracy, or a simple moralistic critique, and so on and so on. So, you know, it's easy to be just formally anti-capitalist, but what does it really mean? It's totally open.
This is why, as I always repeat, with all my sympathy for Occupy Wall Street movement, it's result was . . . I call it a Bartleby lesson. Bartleby, of course, Herman Melville's Bartleby, you know, who always answered his favorite "I would prefer not to" . . . The message of Occupy Wall Street is, I would prefer not to play the existing game. There is something fundamentally wrong with the system and the existing forms of institutionalized democracy are not strong enough to deal with problems. Beyond this, they don't have an answer and neither do I. For me, Occupy Wall Street is just a signal. It's like clearing the table. Time to start thinking.
The other thing, you know, it's a little bit boring to listen to this mantra of "Capitalism is in its last stage." When this mantra started, if you read early critics of capitalism, I'm not kidding, a couple of decades before French Revolution, in late eighteenth century. No, the miracle of capitalism is that it's rotting in decay, but the more it's rotting, the more it thrives. So, let's confront that serious problem here.
Also, let's not remember--and I'm saying this as some kind of a communist--that the twentieth century alternatives to capitalism and market miserably failed. . . . Like, okay, in Soviet Union they did try to get rid of the predominance of money market economy. The price they paid was a return to violent direct master and servant, direct domination, like you no longer will even formally flee. You had to obey orders, a new authoritarian society. . . . And this is a serious problem: how to abolish market without regressing again into relations of servitude and domination.
My advice would be--because I don't have simple answers--two things: (a) precisely to start thinking. Don't get caught into this pseudo-activist pressure. Do something. Let's do it, and so on. So, no, the time is to think. I even provoked some of the leftist friends when I told them that if the famous Marxist formula was, "Philosophers have only interpreted the world; the time is to change it" . . . thesis 11 . . . , that maybe today we should say, "In the twentieth century, we maybe tried to change the world too quickly. The time is to interpret it again, to start thinking."
Second thing, I'm not saying people are suffering, enduring horrible things, that we should just sit and think, but we should be very careful what we do. Here, let me give you a surprising example. I think that, okay, it's so fashionable today to be disappointed at President Obama...
This episode we go over the scam that is college and how it's jewing people out of a future and getting them into debt, we talk a little about "Business Pseudo Intellectuals". ALSO, AMAZON SELLS HOUSES, WHAT THE FUCK?
Before President Trump began the revolution, against the deep state. Colleges were turned into weapons of indoctrination and life long debt enslavement. Young people trapped in their parent's basements, working minimum wage jobs, with degrees that weren't worth the paper they were printed on. They have without any real knowledge or understanding of the free market or socialism have in their desperation turned towards the fairy tale world of socialism. Envisioning the world of Star Trek with free stuff pouring in from heaven. Millenials fail to realize that at every attempt under the deep state socialism has killed millions. They fail to realize that the people that enslaved them to debt are now trying to regain power, by promising free stuff. Free college, free food, free housing all you have to do is give up all your freedoms. Millenials in their suicide pact for themselves and our nation don't understand economics, history, capitalism or the on going shadow civil war being waged by President Trump against the Deep State. As long as we vote for Trump and support the free market capitalism, we can remove the Deep State DNC cancer at the heart of all of Americas problems!

On today's episode we decided to take it slow and share Eduardo's personal political journey and how he has evolved over time. He examines the issues of race, the environment, immigration, guns, but most importantly how those issues are in the greater systemic context of capitalism when he listens to people. He had a recent self-imposed LISTENING tour in the state of Florida. A state largely seen as a winner-take-all voting state for Republicans, but is a proportional voting state for Democrats. He spoke to different folks from very conservative to Trump supporters. However, he had an especially profound change in listening to his childhood longtime friend Jake, whom we had on the show over a year ago.
It is clear that the plan revealed in this program continues to unfold. Monopoly is not an outgrowth of capitalism. Monopolists lobby for laws that give them advantages in the market place. Monopoly is not based on free-enterprise competition, but the escape from it. It is not the product of capitalism but the bedfellow of socialism.
Today I would like to talk about Capitalism in right-wing worldview. Capitalism is oftentimes one of those “love or hate: topics in right-wing sphere. You find both haters and fiery proponents of capitalism. This leads to lots of discord and attempts to exclude another point of view and group of people from what we would call a right-wing sphere. Are there ways for reconciliation? Is there a possible common ground? And where is the place of capitalism in a healthy society?

-Discussing the relationship between system complexity and totalitarian societies.
Reducing the number of agents and their choices, by concentrating decision-making into a smaller number of larger agents results in inevitable totalitarianism.
Capitalist democracies in a many-nation-state global order approach or exceed the Wissner-Gross Criterion for a Minimal Intelligent System; while centralization destroys this Emergent dynamic and leads to totalitarianism and failure.
Only social systems which Maximize Future Entropy by increasing Complex Adaptability will compete and survive in a peaceful global order.
I was getting tired in this broadcast so I forgot to mention, The Aryan Ideal is not only about "Service" and "Self-Sacrifice". It is also about, "Self-Preservation". How selfish! ~ Altruism is a false parasitical parallel of Service to The Aryan Ideal. Altruism serves The Divide & Steal of ZMOG's (Zio-Marxist Occupied Governments) whereby The Communist System subjugates The HUman Kingdom it is supposed to serve. This is in large part why The Aryan Ideal of National "Public Banking" Socialism rather than Capitalism or Marxism is the antidote to Private Central Banking debt economies and The Orwellian Communist NWO.
Capitalism in post-WW2, Henry Ford and JFK #ZMOG (Zio-Marxist Occupied Government) regulated economies is manifestly Corporate and consequently, Communist. Capitalism is also the contra-dialectic of Marxism whereby both White Capitalists and White Marxists are not only divided against each other in The Zio-Marxist System they both serve to perpetuate but are mutually opposed to National Socialism and consequently their own (racial and spiritual) existential interests.

Cover is the enriching prospects of Communism and Diversity mixed. Oh Goodie. Rather have my balls in a vice.
Ever wondered how circuit boards are mass produced? Look at the technology and workmanship involved. You have to give credit where credit is due, the yellow race may have stolen our technology, and while they don't want to actively genocide us like the Jewish elite, they really know a thing or two about solidarity and unity, and so they pose a problem to us as a people. So how can we compete against this when the chinks will work for an average salary of $3,000 a year, yet Americans expect an average of $47,000? It's a problem we have to face and a problem we have to solve, and unless we can overthrow the (((banking system))) and introduce our own economic system, just as Hitler did in the 1930's, or eliminate bugmen consumers from the gene pool, we're pretty much fucked!

I especially appeal to evangelicals who voted for Trump to consider Tulsi Gabbard as the candidate most pleasing to Jesus at this time. She has the heart of Jesus in caring for the poor and NOT catering to the rich and powerful. The establishment in both parties oppose her. She needs some Trump voters to help her out. Here is a page I've made about this: https://gabriellechana.blog/2019/05/21/is-tulsi-gabbard-a-socialist/
How can an economist be a freedom fighter? This question was posed to me last week at the Libertarian National Convention. The person who I was discussing this series with meant well. I am sure when they think of freedom fighters, the image of Samuel Adams or Geronimo arise in their mind. To be sure, those are freedom fighters. To many, the image of an aged man, dressed in a suit, sitting in a blue chair before a studio audience takes little courage. I disagree; all activists find their own way.
Speaking truth to a submissive populace can be more influential and certainly more peaceful. Milton Friedman brought his Nobel Prize winning economic ideas to the American people at a time when the free market was considered fringe and was not only unpopular, but viewed by the public who were brainwashed to accept collectivist and socialist ides, as uncaring and selfish. Friedman made the topic of capital and finance fun and witty. Without his charismatic voice, the new popularity of both the Chicago school of economics and the Austrian school would not have enjoyed the resurgence they do today. The prevailing economic thought of Libertarians would be non-existent; the economic voices of the past and future would be shared unto deaf ears. Ron Paul, Adam Kokesh, Tom Woods, and scores of other free market thinkers would not be welcomed with the reception they do without those Donahue interviews in the late 70’s and early 80’s.

"The End of America" details the ten steps a country takes when it slides toward fascism. It's not a "lefty" taught-to-me, but rather a historical look at trends in once-functioning democracies from modern history that are being repeated in our country today. It gives any reader (or viewer of the lecture) a much-needed history lesson and constitutional refresher. Most importantly, it puts the recent gradual loss of civil liberties in the U.S. in a historical context. The average American might not be alarmed at AT&T selling our private information to the federal executive, but when this action is seen as part of a larger series of erosions and events, a pattern emerges with unfortunate consequences that become disturbingly clear.
Decades after capitalism seemed to have triumphed over socialism, politicians are once again arguing about the merits and drawbacks of these opposing economic systems. Why are we still having this debate? Andy Puzder, former CEO of the parent company of Hardee's and Carl's Jr., explains the misconceptions that keep the debate alive.
Andrew Yang is an entrepreneur and founder of Venture for America, a nonprofit organization whos mission is "to revitalize American cities and communities through entrepreneurship" by training recent graduates and young professionals to work for startups in emerging cities throughout the United States.
Yang is also a Democratic candidate for president in 2020
Economics is not an exciting subject for most people. When you compare this freedom fighter to the direct actions of Geronimo, or the philosophical mind of Thomas Paine, Smith certainly falls short. It is not excitement that makes the warrior of freedom; it is their ability to set themselves or others free. It is no coincidence that many modern leaders, such as Ron Paul and Adam Kokesh, study economics. Without a free market giving needed stability, our fight would be much more difficult. People who worry about where their next meal is coming from seldom think too deeply. Liberty in economy simply equals freedom in life. As Adam Kokesh said, “it is all economics.” Those who seek to control the economy seek to control property. One of the most precious things you own is yourself. Remember, that when the government or anyone else tries to control or “manage” the economy.
