Global Riot It is not about attacking the capitalists themselves but their system. We want to destroy the system not the person. After the revolution the capitalists will have to learn anew and live in another way, without exploitation, oppression or discrimination thus a much better and freer way. It is the system that is killing us, some slow some quick, it is a system that makes us pay for water and shelter, for land and soup, a system in which if you don’t have money you die or become mentally ill and be hospitalized or become a criminal a get arrested. Always paying for very move you make and if your parents are not born rich you are certainly doomed for misery and hardship. There is enough for everybody yet most are starving, there is abundance in the midst of global scarcity, a surplus as never before in the face of the utmost universal poverty. The form of the capitalist system is unsuitable for a prolonged human existence, is unsuitable for human life but is very successful for monarch, autocrats, all hierarchs and all authority. This why our human history looks so miserable, full of genocide and suffering, every century is bloodier than one that preceded it. It is time to choose another course of co-living, another way of living in the best way, the way of anarchic freedom, a historical development, a higher consciousness, a time of anarcho-social revolution.
Labor is an imposed violence and psycho-physical forceful transgression and being without labor is also a coercive force imposed upon the unlucky person. The system is owned privately by a few individuals who share it with the institution of power the army and the state. The economic system which is known as neo-capitalism is ruled and controlled by a clique of elite families and their organizations, banks, media, insurance, etc. capitalism is not a natural phenomenon or the result of human nature, it is not a natural selection nor a historical necessity but is the objective condition of modern slavery. From slavery through feudalism to modern capitalism, nothing much has changed, it is the same class that owns and manages the neo-slaves. Organization is primarily designed for the efficient operation of managers, guards, salaried and waged workers and the self-employed accept of course the unemployed. We are now 22 years after the Orwellian state of affair in 1984 – 1944 – 2004 etc, meta-historico-simulation and the only available option is an anarchic social revolt. If capitalism destroys you and I so let’s together destroy it – Work is Theft
In capitalism you are a prisoner and a slave if you happened to be poor. You are a slave and a prisoner of the objective condition, i.e., the fiscal condition. To be a free for a poor wo/man is impossibility without an anarcho-communist revolution. Most people are very poor although they try hard not to show it, most are ashamed of their fate and outwardly they do everything to show otherwise. Work, wages, money, food, etc, are all functions that are beyond the worker and the unemployed. They are directly the victims of this objective capitalist condition. You don’t chose if there is work or not and no one can guarantee or secure you or me the next rent or wage or debt. If the owners of capital build a new factory you might get a job, but if not, you don’t. So you immigrate closer to the owners of capita and their profiteering enterprises, the capitalist metropolis. We are salves of the capitalist masters lets revolt and set ourselves free – for anarchy, equity and freedom.
All the history of humanity has started from a primitive mistake and an evolutionary error primarily from when agricultural settlements began and gathering and hunting faded away. From slavery to neo-capitalism, from utopian socialism to Nazi ideology stem directly from this historico-evolutionary homo-sapiens deviation thus launching the continuous violent contradictions of the present. History is a long war, the war of wealth, power and control, a bloody and shameful history, where people kill one another by the millions and where the majority has always been on the tragic and catastrophic end of things. Look at the state of humanity today; it is not much better than hundreds years before, people suffer the same and even more. Capitalism is killing all of us, some quick some slow and it is killing our environment and it is killing us from the inside too. Pursuing money all life long brings about this tragic human situation since life is not for sale unless you were born a salve. When each person is for him/herself on the battle of survival then we are always all against all and all against each others, in other words, blind aggression and institutional and criminal violence for money and control. Instead of living happy and naturally people find themselves depressed and often miserable, they cannot enjoy real freedom and creativity because they have deprived of nature and a natural surrounding and living in the country does not make it nature yet. The rat race of dog eat dog forever is over, we need anarchy immediately to stop this all devouring Leviathan, the big worm that digests anything in its path. Humanity can live otherwise, well fed, healthy and highly creative yet you see the absolute majority of humanity living in utmost poverty, suffering, and hunger and in disease. Capitalism should be further accelerated towards its own natural termination, towards its definite end, an objective withering away of capitalism. Enough with this brutal system that does only serious harm to nature and humanity, let’s get rid of it and liberate what remains of our lives and of nature. A cruel and destructive capitalist system that constantly devours its subjects and excretes them anally as a bio-human product, as a superfluous junk unneeded for the modern techno-production. Prosperity is theft.
What communication are you talking abut, in capitalism there is no communication there is only a total miscommunication and alienation. Forums like blogs and the internet as such is also capitalist therefore anti-communication between consumers and frustrated citizens. So please don’t preach to me about communication because there is no communication but a miserable passing of time of well fed middle class individuals who play amongst themselves during and after working time. Forums are a capitalist manifestation for the pretence of non-existent democracy. Therefore my friend it’s your lack of comprehension that makes communication impossible not my writings. Thanks. I agree with you about the an exploited anarchic situation in Africa, Lenin is dead but I am alive and I assure that one day you are going to find me leading the libratory revolution in Africa. But for the time being I do the revolution everywhere I find my self to be. The anarcho-revolution is global and it will start at a several areas simultaneously and all this is coming very soon, in our life times at the end of this decade. No police, or any other authority and without revolutionary leaders, just anarcho-social revolutionaries changing the world fast. Anarcho-Liberation Hope – Optimism – Revolutionary Transformation – Ontological Meta²morphosis From a cruel and ugly capitalism to the beauty and harmony of anarchy, from vicious capitalism and extreme hardship to the joys and intense pleasures of anarchy. Only a very minute percentage of the world population benefit materially and live comfortably from capitalism whilst the billions rest live as paupers in shanty cities and in a life long total poverty. The cause of all this mass universal human misery is the system called capitalism which means in other words and in practical terms, the well to do of the very few and the total destruction of all the others and they tell us that this is the famous democracy of theirs i.e., their legal excuse for exploiting and controlling all the others. Democracy = Capitalism = Classes = Feudalism = Slavery Only an anarchic material synchronization and coordination and concrete cooperative association which is based not on organization and discipline i.e. Party/state/money/security but on complete equity and the natural right for a life of dignity. Communist – Individualist – Anarchism (CIA²)
What is the idea of faith schools? Here in the United Kingdom we have just witnessed days of violent clashes between Asian and Black youths on the streets of Birmingham. The underlying problem appearing to be racism between the two groups. How do we avoid such tension between groups. Obviously poverty and the lack of oppurtunities available to young men is part of the problem. One way of solving the problem I believe would to be sure that all races black, white, muslim, christian are able to mingle together from as early an age as possible. The idea that a school can be based around ones faith is appaling and should not be allowed. We have institutions already that are dedicated to educating people in their beliefs, churches, mosques etc. Why then should we segregate our youth further? Is it not already enough that our minorities feel prejudiced enough without seperating them further from mainstream society. The battle against racism and intolerance is still being fought and will still be being fought for along time into the future. It will not be an easy fight, it never has been but through education and non-faith schools we can make a start.
1. Intro to autonomous media infrastructures: - anecdotes - autonomous platforms a focus for those engaged in developing technological and communications infrastructure involved in oppositional or contestational political activity. Target: CNN: quality of service: akamai Obstacles: minimize technical expertise required, minimize creating disappointment due to temporary technical outages 2. Technological preconditions - compression reduce to 10% of original size - bandwidth: flat fee, all you can eat - storage space: exponential - p2p models top distribute the load, remove a single point of failure, robustness (possible also using multiple ftp servers but less elegant) reduce vulnerability to legal attack (copyright owners, police) Systems born with purpose(unlike video blogging): developed in tandem with the experience of the pirate networks experience during feb15th ftaa (lost tapes) build band of materials for telestreet, satellite broadcasts Why: importance of av literacy: limited av lexicon: our imaginations are substantially formed by stories told by others: disney and children, wholesomeness, ideological products (1) Distribution & Archival (2) Production different p2p protocols have different uses: maximal efficiency for dealing with large files: bt persistence, library and long term availability: ed2k 3. Models: distribution of finished projects: ngvision ftp/p2p architecture codec: divx 10m/p/m rss metadata naming conventions creative commons non-commercial massive use: 550 films 4000 downloads via ftp/p/week 6000 bt downloads off that one tracer alone 3a. Archive.org 4. Models: distribution of raw materials intended to be used: v2v codec: ogg theora 15m/p/m rss tool for encoding from dv to theora metadata etc bit torrent/magent/ed2k change model of production by distributing the production process (new york berlin rome shoot stuff for one another) 4a: Political question about representation and the difference between organizational models today and yesterday: not propaganda, no party line, independent infrastructures upon which it is possible to build many different gateways which can be designed according to people's own sensibility. 5. Question of community existing political affinities exchange feedback downstream benefits (screenings, logistical support) 6. Licensing: - non-commercial will not transform the model of production - specific types of media have determinate life cycles: television news - ethical questions arise in the context of some pieces of footage 7. Back to community: collaboration: sustained exchanges based on trust where questions about: decision-making ownership and control credit - GPL represents a social contract which is easily understood, community generated understanding, av community needs the same thing. .... are negotiated 8. From production to distribution: the full articulation of the change in distribution into the production sphere: - cyberpunk educator - the ring of free trade - subtitling - echochamber 9. Spaces for viewing Piratecinema.org uses of ipod or mp3 player devices as portable hard disks for promiscuos information exchange 10. Limitations: - no marketing budget the sustainability question has been partially but not fully addressed: how to liberate time for people to work on things they want or believe how to get out of the contradiction between wanting maximal access and some income (income becomes political question involving arts funding and public broadcast licence allocation) * contrast: BBC 11. technical problems: ISPs as gatekeepers discriminate against non-commercial services: the idea is to reproduce you as a passive consumer of other people's stories. - artificially limited uploads - transfer caps - traffic shaping - legal assault in its various guises DRM, control of hardware, selective prosecution 12. Purpose: Tell our own stories, not to recreate forms of ideological communication linked to the past. V2V - A User Built Infrastructure for Video Distribution Background Since the beginning freedom to communicate has been bridled by costs of production and distribution. Gutherberg, creator of the first modern printing press, was himself the first victim of media venture capitalism, losing his machinery to the financier Fust shortly after its completion, who consigned it to his son-in-law, Guthenberg's apprentice. Books also required transportation and booksellers to distribute them, and especially where controversial materials were at issue this was a risky affair - twenty years prior to the liberation of the Bastille nearly 40% of those locked within its walls were serving sentences related to the booktrade. The twentieth century had its own form of controls, more tactful and becoming a civilised dictatorship of opinion. Distribution mechanisms were bought up and cartellized; alternative models such as cable or satellite required a level of investment that demanded commercial for-profit operation, all carried out under a state of artificial scarcity imposed by government through its management of radio spectrum. With the award in 1996 of a huge slice of the radio licenses to the incumbent television networks under the pretext fo the need to shift to High Definition Television the US government left no doubt that the synergistic utopia between the forces of media power and the political class remained intact. Simultaneous with these developments however there was another: the formation of diffuse networks sharing files horizontally, parsing information for one another, recombining each other's data and forwarding it onwards. This tendency received a quantum boost in 1999 with the emergence of the first mass file sharing tool Napster that established the technical conditions for the massive point to point transfer of media files directly from one user to another using HTTP. This tool rendered clear to users what would later be articulated by network analysts as the fundamental characteristics of digital production. First both the inputs and the outputs were informational. As such they had what are known as 'public good' characteristics, namely that the cost of paying for initial production includes does is that of all subsequent copies. Furthermore the ability of one person to use the data does not hinder from the opportunity for any other to use the same data. Secondly, co-operation was made easy by a huge decline in communication costs, so that all one needed to know was whether a file was online at a given time or not, and this functionality was handled by the search interface. Thirdly, the ease of connecting the network provided a gigantic base of users with different types of files - elsewhere peer systems have succeeded by providing access to a panoramic range of living labour. Fourthly, all of these things had been rendered possible by the massive decline in cost of computational equipment capable of processing, storing and retrieving widely dispersed data - this apparatus provided both a means of production, and when attached to the network, a means of distribution. As the jaws of the law closed in on Napster, and the latter attempted to weather the storm by becoming a commercial operation and initiating negotiations with commercial interests nominally owning the digital goods being shared, numerous alternative file-sharing systems arose and flourished. Most of these networks however contained similar content predictably mainstream in character, and so the process of user passivity to protagonism seemed stalled, locked into the prison of the imagination that had been constructed by decades of marketing, promotion and imagineering. V2V V2V is conceived as an answer to several problems. The first is to make critical and creative work more widely available and familiar. Secondly to lay the plumbing of a network upon which people will be able to build their own gateways, according to their subjectivity. Thirdly to encourage users to allow their materials to be used as building blocks for others. Fourthly to enable a space for users and producers for feedback and the development of relations. The fundamental resource necessary for V2V are plentiful bandwidth and storage space. Many high-speed services now charge a flat rate based upon the presumption that users will only use a fraction of their notional capacity creating a surplus available for allocation to purposes other than personal data transfers. Likewise the dizzying speed at which hard disk space has grown means that many users have surplus memory that they do not need. These two factors combined with evolving peer to peer protocols satisfy the necessary requirements to begin building a user-based infrastructure. Given the permeation of internet coordination into social radical organizing that community is already quite elaborately networked. Communications have emphasized organization of demonstrations and events, or the development of common analytical resources however rather than the collectivization of unused transmission resources. Increasing amounts of our media consumption are digitally delivered while commodity process continue to drive down the price of equipment and connectivity such that what today appears as a service available only to limited sections of the population will be extended to the population as a whole. By assembling this infrastructure now we can anticipate these developments, refine our techniques and be ready to convey our meanings to a wider audience. Sustainability & Scalability Our history is littered with the contradictions of independent media structures and few have managed to retain their integrity. The reason for this has been the cost-sustainability nexus. As a magazine's readership grows printing costs increase, the level of commitment required of the writers rises and deals with commercial distributors become difficult to avoid. Typically two outcomes emerge. The first is dependency on external forms of funding from foundations, arts councils or private individuals. As anyone who has failed in a grant application is well aware, this reliance introduces distortions, both obvious and subtle, in purpose and self-perception. This tension is accentuated as the project expands and the discrepancy between external funding and internal revenue generation grows. Professionalization is the other path that often awaits sometime critical endeavours. Daily newspapers such as Liberation and Tageszeitung in Europe are good examples of this, as are the various free-sheets in the United States such as Village Voice. Over time this commercialization eviscerates the critical quality of the work and imposes a 'mainstreaming effect'. Peer to peer forms have the potential to scale through these difficulties without imposing financial burdens. As a network widens, its new participants bring additional resources so that the 'load' is distributed over a greater number of machines. The programme that we recommend for downloading files "Bit Torrent" illustrates this point. the performance of file sharing protocols such as Gnutella and Fast Track (Kazaa, Grokster) is handicapped by the fact that there are many users who only download files and do not contribute resources to the network. This is the problem economists classically refer to as 'the tragedy of the commons' or 'free riding'. In short the refusal of some to share inhibits the functioning of the system as a whole. Bit Torrent distinguished itself from these protocols by hardwiring in the code the obligation to share a file as one downloads it. The initial source of the file is known as a 'seed' and it distributes different components of the file to requesting clients. Each client is also connected to a 'tracker' that monitors which users are active and which elements of the file are in their possession. Via the tracker the clients then begin a coordinated exchange of packets between one another, gathering data from multiple sources simultaneously in a swarm formation. The result is that the higher the level of demand for a file, the more sources exist and the better the performance of the system. Modus Operandi Submitting materials to the network requires the following steps. First the file should be compressed with the codec of your choice. If pressed we commend VP3 and XVid because of their non-proprietary character or DivX because of its efficiency and ubiquity. Ultimately however such technical determinations are not the province of V2V. The file should then be renamed following our naming convention, which means simply the addition of v2v_ before the file name. This convention makes it easier for users to search for independent files within the larger sea of music and video files.Basic data about the file must then be provided by filling in a form at v2v.indymedia.de that provides a summary of the genre, length, size, format, description, language and license type. When completed this file downloads to your desktop. Both the media file and the .info metadata form should then be placed in a folder with same name as the file and the uploaded via FTP to a V2V server. This means that the load of the initial wave of demand is spread over the servers and the time required to transfer is reduced. The servers are set up with a scrip that proliferates the file through the server ring and generates three links. The first is a 'magnet' link and is commonly used by Gnutella Clients. The second is an eDonkey2000 link for clients of the eponymous network. The last is a torrent file, which must be downloaded and then opened to commence the transfer. Finally the news of the file's release appears on a V2V site/RSS containing both the basic metadata and the p2p links. A Syndicated Network and No Exclusive Gateway V2V is a protean group composed of many diverse subjectivities. To try and capture them all in a definition of political purpose or cultural hue would be reductive and futile. The characteristics of the network also make it unnecessary. V2V is an infrastructure project to which each can build their own gateway. Files uploaded are published to an RSS (really Simple Syndication) wire that can be integrated into any page alongside one's own content or links. We urge others to form their own release groups, digitizing and making available files that reflect their interests. Individual Bit Torrent files and edonkey links can easily be copied and added to pages or emails. A Community of Produsers "...where the gift is concerned, goods circulate in the service of ties. Any exchange of goods or services with no guarantee of recompense in order to create, nourish, or recreate social bonds between people is a gift. We intend to show how the gift, as a form of circulation of goods that promotes social bonding, represents a key element in any society." Jacque Godbout Cultural workers are standardly used as source of moral authority by the copyright lobby as if the production of capitalist culture was not also a matter of exploitation of artists. Despite common adversaries little meaningful dialogue has taken place between cultural workers and p2p users. Users are depicted in a parasitic light -- when not portrayed as 'pirates' or 'criminals' -- as their activity is presented as consisting only in the unsanctioned consumption of the work of others. The lucrative rewards of mass culture are available however only to a handful, those whom the entertainment magnates have decreed will receive millions of dollars of promotion. For the rest there is the work of the journeyman, debt or the part-time job. What keeps most independent culture alive is the rich fabric of community that makes the uneconomic possible, the myriad DIY film showings and concerts, the small magazines and distros, the tapestry of email lists that provides a conduit for feedback, response, and engagement with the meanings produced. And of course there are the beds and couches to sleep on all over the world, the curious packages and letters received in the post. To this list of 'benefits' provided by users and peer relationships we can add two others. The first is the actual physical and telecommunications platform upon which works can be hosted persistently and served at speeds that make viewing convenient rather than just feasible. Secondly the release of the material takes place into a crowd of potential emissaries, from individuals to independent film theaters and public access television. Collaborative software allows commentary to be added directly to the notice of the film's release so that dialogue between users and producers occur, a dialogue which could relate to the substance of the film, the technique behind a shot, and offer of assistance or an invitation to present one's work. As the costs of equipment fall further, and video-editing skills proliferate, further inflections in literacy occur and more people will write audio-visually, Garage TV and Belles Images. Every user will also be a producer, and these categories will cease to have any salience in the age of the produser. This promiscuous mixing of images is anathema to copyright lovers and the interests behind them, but disturbs others as well, who have seen their work exploited, decontextualised and appropriated. Yet we know that copyright infringement makes no sound in cyberspace, and that such cries can serve to legitimize the fashion for extending control, monitoring and police-ware in the network. Away from the clumsy vice of the law space for reciprocal respect is fundamental. The licenses we attach to our achievements are signals about the way we want to be treated, appeals for fair attribution, for the protection of the subject, for protection against unjust profiteering. Mutual parasitism is possible but requires that we are all careful not to kill the host. 1. SETI example 2. Visibility There's No Such Thing as Free Beer (as Mako pinted out about piracy as cheap advertising) Limits of freedom: commodity form; sharing of mainstream media products contributes productively to maintaining mainstream preferences. Payment may be lacking but the formula upon which the media companies relies remain intact: popularity of their archive produces revenues to control contemporary production and marketing, guaranteeing their dominance over the future. P2P distribution risks becoming a mechanism for the reinforcement of preferences alrreqady created by the market. Pirate Challenge The battle has been won in distribution of the commodities. The amount of materials which are out there; the extent of the code base, functioning implementations; proliferation of physical devices that allow us to share outside without being online, via firewire or USB. New Horizons The full articulation of the changes in distributions impact on productive processes in the audi-visual field is still to come. The raw materials are there. User interfaces to allow editing and recombination are being progressively simplified: don't think avid or final cut pro, think quicktime pro, iMovie etc. Do it and then distribute via p2p. Space of reception Like the independent bookshop, the indie cinema is disappearing. Fortunately there is the rise of the amateur illegal, and 100% pirate. A place to show films entirely outside of industry distribution mechanisms, to free ride on their popularity, to enable spaces for the socialization of film through discussion, possibility to acquire copies. http://www.piratecinema.org Product placement: millions of dollars are the evidence of the value producing capacity of media products as mirrors refracting our world, encouraging and fashioning consumption. Distinction between free infrastructure and the affective effects of media in the production of exchange value. The first is the basis for the potential assault on the other, the possible platform for a self-determined reverse engineering of the mind. Without the second aspect the first loses its political significance, but it is necessary, it at least affords us the chance to make our own mistakes. When we counterpose free to proprietary, we are really talking about the problem. path dependency Some Consequences 1. Law 2. Censorship 3. Space of politicization created by repression of file trading laws. joolsyp@blueyonder.co.uk Negri doc New Global Vision Established in 2001, following the G* demonstrations in Genoa, born of the urgency to disseminate information, not only to the world in general but to the 300,000 who had taken part in demonstrations that had been physically broken up by the police, leaving one dead, hundreds injured, hundreds arrested and tortured in police custody. Video distribution was already taking place on VHS, but was too slow, its coverage was minuscule, and there were the limitations imposed by cost. FTP servers were established and video updates circulating materials some taken from local television, most drawn from individual film makers and camera-operators. It was a massive success and the process took on a life of its own: today the ngvision archive contains over 550 films. these are not the 7 second clips of shadows or people falling over on a friday night. they are finished works of different standards. Statistics: 4000 downloads per week BT- 4 world war - 6,000 times off the bit torrent tracker alone. Memory, but also about a dialogue with the present.
Optimistic practice and anarcho-revolutionary activity is the answer to your pessimism. Bakunin warned Marx about his authoritative communism. The last one to blame is Bakunin; it is Marx, Lenin and Trotsky that fucked the whole thing into the hands of the CIA and the World Bank. So don’t blame the anarchists for the failings of Bolshevism. During the Bolshevik revolution anarchists were executed, jailed or expelled from Russia. Capitalism is theft and democracy is for the ruling class alone. Capitalist atheism is worst than religious capitalism, anarcho-capitalists are worst than the neo-conservative capitalists and the individuals in this quasi-atheist forum are nothing but a bunch of bored frustrated middle class persons, sexually dissatisfied Americans that happened to have computers to play and waste their time with. If I was them I would have read what is written and shut up and not expose your ignorance and malicious intellectual impotence. If I was you I would leave America or make a revolution there so as to save the Iraqis and the rest of humanity and earth, so for now fuck you all tremendously and if you wish further confrontation here I am awaiting you all at your own shaky home ground. First of all you personally have to rebel against the system and always lead the struggle of the oppressed and exploited, the rest will come on its own objective accord. Capitalism is disease and all living in it, with the exception of the anarcho-social revolutionary, are sick individuals and sick people. What is needed not only a revolution for the destruction of law, the state and capitalism but the creation of new minds and new thinking and new emotions. Without this emancipation we shell remains living in the neo-modern dark ages. To my friend activist, folk, solidarity, etc, make the revolution and look no back, the only solution is a total anarcho-social revolution for the creation of free and equal humanity without oppression, repression or suppression. My anarcho-revolutionary activity is parallel to my existence and is operative on all levels, 24 hours a day and 360 days a year, therefore the revolution is very near (in our life span), and the anarchic society is awaiting us all. Grammar is an etiological terrorism and terrorism is capitalism’s foreign and domestic policy.
A second response to Arcangeli's 'ashk,' many lines of which resounded with so many recent frustrations of mine. (the first response disappeared, I still don't know how we save entries). I also feel that even alternative collective identities (political, intellectual) don't get us far in the absence of a genuine search for something other than the self, however extraordinarily that self may be defined, I or us. We're living in the real subsumption of the mega-mundane, no doubt.. including the banalization of every bit of radicalness that is left. Academy's mud water trickles into every nook of fresh thought, drawning it, and as the bubbles come out, academic type speaks loud and certain.. (I'm talking about academy, cause i know less about the drawning by the political). Did you notice any friendship in the academy? We have colleagues instead, just as bank clerks do. Mushrooms and the shaman rituals, and poetic awareness is all inspiring. But is this still not a "monadic" world, a world of the mono, of monotone, and ultimately of "myself"? Into whatever excentricity I may push myself, into nature, the dawn and an unprecedented awareness probably... what will I hear that can alert me to the presence of an other that passes near by? Without the other's passage and, probably, guest-hood, and probably friendship how will I exit the super-linear mundane, how will i know i've exited?
Anarchism Instead of Capitalism Humanity did not choose capitalism; it is the capitalists and their managers that maintain and keeps capitalism going. Capitalism is cruel as was its Bolshevik counterpart, now we have remained with raw capitalism lead by Bush and Blare. 85% of the world population directly suffers from this discriminatory system. Capitalism excludes the poor even from bare survival, it uses the law and psychiatry to dictate its rules and punish dissidents. This so called free market is just another word that implies that you will remain poor forever and repressed and they will always just get richer. Even a kid knows that without a large capital you are doomed to a definite oblivion. So burn all illusions about democracy and free enterprise, these are just terms for further justification for the enslavement of the majority of humanity and guaranteeing it to last for a long time. Violent capitalism for profiting at any cost even at the cost of sacrificing tens of thousands of poor youth that has been given only 2 miserable choices, either to get severely injured and die for the state for a wage or end up in the gutter of the chronic poor and the punitive rehabilitation system. The capitalist system is systematically destroying people, nature and causing irreversible damage to planet earth. Capitalism exists on barrowed time given to it by the techno-industrial revolution of the ‘Western Civilization’ but not for much longer. This capitalist system is lead and managed by the rich ruling class which has been decaying into decadence and degeneration for a prolonged time and we definitely see very clearly the results all over history and at our present time. The longer capitalism remains to rule and control us and continues to oppress and punish us, the more mass misery we will have and the more depressed, frustrated and bored we will become. The shorter the future life span of capitalism will be, say less than a decade from now, the quicker humanity will be liberated and freed from the octopus arms of the authority of the capitalist system, happiness for all will be achieved and emancipation practiced all over the land. Freedom at last realized in real lives and regions and material equality for all and by all. The rich rulers of the world with their hypocritical democracy and techno-military might impose their ugly will on all of us in the past, present and future and with very tragic and catastrophic consequences. Capitalists are the agilest individuals on earth, their ideas of life and the world is Nazi-like and extremely reactionary like all the governments and the states. Their personal characters is a gangster like dictatorial behavior through threats and military or secret violence, sheer brutality disguised beneath democratic tautology but extremely anti-human and anti-nature. The banks they have constructed, the organization they have created and the companies the have built are all designed for one purpose only and is based one principle too: institutional fascism with suits and ties, contracts steal deals. A fascist mode of official operation, the master-mind of modern capitalism – neo-conservative neo-capitalism that treats most of its people and civilians like shit, they treat their pets much better and their thoughts of nature and humanity is as resources for their disposal and for their immediate and corrupt financial and political manipulation and for their cynical displeasures. Our poverty and misery is their achievement and success, our instability and anguish is their leadership and power control over all of us everywhere and any time they choose the can inflict what ever they want and when ever they want to kill or cause damage, imprison or hospitalize and physically and psychically eliminate anyone they chose. The globalization of control over us and the mass rehabilitation on all modes that is available to them, using modern technology to implement their Greco-Roman and Judeo-Christian - Muslim laws, rules, patriotism and ideology. They have weapons that can blow up the planet earth into particles and dust and eliminate the our planetary existence in the solar and milky galactic systems and erase us from cosmos and space, and all this is just for the maintenance of rule and profit. Hegemony at any cost and at any price, a free market etiology, words the express greed and a lust to rule others stemming from a severe self-devaluation and chronic fear of equality with an inferiority mega-complex. No more capitalism …. S.A
