Under Capitalism — Human Lives Don’t Matter

Capitalism Does Not, and Never Has, Worked for the Masses! In Its Death Agony, Capitalism Is Traveling About The World Like The Four Horsemen of the The Apocalypse, Spreading  Racism,  War, Famine, Pestilence, and Death. The very future of Humanity Is Now At stake!occupy1The Capitalist World is in Crisis!

  • The Economy is in deep crisis, the capitalist cannot afford to be reformed and/or war spending to get world capitalism ‘recovered’ like it did in the last depression!

  • The 1% capitalists rule must be opposed! Poverty is rampant! Due to Years of Austerity, Cuts to Public Health Care, And An Anti-Science and Profiteering President, The United States Now Leads the World In  Coronavirus Cases and Deaths in the World! And Now the Total Caronavirs Deaths in the United  States are Over 20%  of the Total Death in the Entire World! Blacks and other minorities, poor people, the uninsured, the underinsured, and the elderly account for the majority of these deaths.

  • Coronavirus and other new viruses are dueto the capitalist mode of food production— Argri-Business!

  •  Financial inequality is rampant!

  • Racial Inequality is rampant

  • There are ongoing wars throughout the world!

  • The environment in crisis— The habitat for humanity at stake!— Global warming has put the world on fire!

  • There is an extreme lack of housing!

  • The world’s masses are hungry — the Scepter of mass starvation looms! The pestilence of the coronaviruses worldwide continues, with no end in sight!

  • The rights of the capitalists to make a profit are in direct conflict with our basic human rights!

  • Black Lives Must Matter! Human lives Must Matter!

The world’s masses instinctively know that capitalism is not working! And that capitalism offers no solution! Despite the efforts of the petty bourgeoisie ‘leaders’ of mass organizations, capitalism has been proven that it cannot be reformed for the betterment of society. In the United States the social democrats, in office, voted unanimously for the coronavirus bailout to the 1% capitalists! (And gave less than 1% of that bailout to the 99%.)

Worldwide, with the support of the petty bourgeoisie ‘leaders’, of the oppressed and exploited,  the capitalist class is socializing their debts — transferring their losses to the 99%. Now they are in frenzy in their search for profits and are stripping the working class, Blacks, oppressed minorities. the poor, and sections of the middle class, of any and all assets. The people for whom capitalist poses no future

The capitalist mode of production is polluting the world, with no regard for life itself. Years ago Rachel Carson predicted  the coming catastrophe, if the mode of production does not change, Rachel Carson predicted this, when she wrote in The Sea Around Us.: “It is a  furious situation that the sea, from which life first arose, should now be threatened by the activities of one form of that life. But the sea, though changed in a sinister way, will continue to exist; the threat is rather to life itself.”

The military-industrial complex (The largest single polluter in the world!) is on an unending campaign of wars to plunder profit from the earth’s wealth! — Demonstrates that, due to the 1% capitalist class’s insatiable greed, human lives don’t matter.

This is what happened historically in the Roman Empire on its way to debt bondage and serfdom. The only capitalist solution the current economic and political crisis of capitalism, at this time, is the worldwide application of the Iron Heel, as described by Jack London in his book, The Iron Heel.

The current police terrorist violence of Black People in the United States is an example of what capitalism has in store for the rest of us unless we organize! In the United States, there has been one movement that is the exception — the Black Lives Matter movement and the massive worldwide multi-racial demonstrations demanding Black Lives Matter!An excerpt from Black Lives Matter Groups Release Political Action Program By Barry Sheppard:

. . .  Another section is on reparations for the harm done by slavery – a demand often raised by Black activists. The document takes the demand further, to include reparations for all the economic harm and exploitation of Blacks not only by slavery, but through Jim Crow up to the present day.   This exploitation is also addressed in a separate section on economic justice. Among other things, it calls for the elimination of regressive taxation and for worker protections for those not included under current regulations – including domestic workers, farm workers, restaurant and other workers who rely on tips. Many are Black and Latino, but this demand is in the interest of all workers, as is the demand for the right of all workers to organize unions.   “A vision for Black lives” is a work in progress. As it is read, discussed and changed by Black Lives Matter activists, their political awareness will be greatly deepened. It will also have an international aspect, as groups in other countries – including Canada, Britain and Australia – have taken up the name of Black Lives Matter in their own struggles.   It should also be read, discussed and debated among socialists and others on the left.   Black Lives Matter has increased the confidence of Black youth. They are taking the lead away from the Black political establishment, which is mired in the Democratic Party. “A vision for Black lives” will increase that confidence further.

The immediate task is to build the international opposition of the working class and the oppressed masses of the world to this international crisis of debt and overproduction. The petty-bourgeois leaderships of the working class and the worlds’ oppressed have no solution to this final crisis of capitalism.

We must begin the struggle against the ruling class monopoly of political power. As Frederick Douglass stated: “if there is no struggle there can no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom and yet depreciate agitation…want crops without plowing up the ground, they want rain without thunder and lightening. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters…. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will.”

Now is the time to reorganize all anti-capitalist forces and fighters for working class emancipation and self-determination for people oppressed by capitalism for the rebuilding of a new revolutionary political organization to organize and build our combined power to overturn capitalism that is, in its death agony, waging war, famine, pestilence, and death, and the globalization of global warming throughout the world!

When we organize this combined power, we will have the force power to stop the corporate thievery! Instead of giving ‘bailout’ donations to these modern-day robber barons, we shall bailout the victims of the modern-day Wall Street Robber Barons!

Once we organize our power independent of the ruling class we can bring all the troops home now from Iraq, Afghanistan, and every other country where they’re stationed, and instead of spending trillions for war, we can initiate massive public works projects, to rebuild the nation’s inner cities, schools, hospitals, eliminate poverty, unemployment, and begin to restore humanity’s habitat!

What is needed is:

  1. Unity and Solidarity of the all exploited and oppressed In the present world.

  2. A Political organization based on that solidarity to lead and support the masses, need to be organized!

Jefferson’s words, that human rights are unalienable, mean that these rights can never be superseded. At all points of conflict the rights of humanity to survive must supersede the right of the few to make a profit. The right to life world is an unalienable human right!

Since the present crisis of capitalism is a global concern, it requires all of humanity to act collectively, in our overall interests for our survival as a species, to correct the problem and to remove the obstacle of capitalism. It requires a society where humanity has social, economic, and political control over the earth. Such a society, a socialist society, is needed to ensure that all decisions affecting the survival of our standard of living are under the democratic control of humankind so that the production of goods will be done for the needs and survival of humanity instead of the production and the destruction of humanity and other species for profit!

With common ownership of the means of production and common control and protection of all property and wealth, science and society will be in harmony with the ecosystem and humanity’s future.

With these goals, we can begin to build an effective movement. As we continue to organize against capitalism and its destructive course, we can and will transform the world.

Black Lives Matter! Human Lives Mater!
