The surplus production

The view that poor people are poor because they are slothful has been a christian capitalist mantra since Victorian times in England, as of course, you well know. I will not take it seriously here.

If the capitalist system can produce a surplus, then everybody in a capitalist society is entitled to a decent standard of living, housing, medical care, leisure, pensions & etc. The lying mantra that there are slothful people is really a reflection of the education system under capitalism. If capitalism is so marvelous, why is there not a free and genuine education system that instills voluntarily, good social behaviour. The simple answer is that the entire ethical, moral and legal system is devoted to the protection of capitalism and of capitalists. The welfare of the general population has never been an aim of capitalism or of its education system, because they understand very well what you all know. That if there were an open and genuine education system that trained children to think as you do, as scientists always looking for truthful evidence, then the present capitalist regimes would not survive very long in its present forms.

Dr Sydney Shall

Nav tik vienkārši. Ar labu izglītību vien nepietiks. T.s. komunisms jau to mēģināja, izrādījās, ka cilvēkus nevar pāraudzināt vienas vai dažu paaudžu laikā. Primātu izcelsmi un ģenētisko mantojumu nevar atcelt ar dažiem pieņēmumiem un paziņojumiem. Pat pie vienāda ģenētiskā materiāla būs ļoti atšķirīgi rezultāti. Visu nosaka sociālā vide.

Bet daļa taisnības tur ir. Mūsdienu kapitālisms ir nonācis pie Marksa paredzētās galējības – nevienlīdzīga sadale līdz pilnīgam absurdam. Atbilstoši primātu instinktiem. Protams, ka pie šodienas darba ražīguma varam visiem nodrošināt ‘cilvēcīgu dzīvi’. Tikai….tas neatbilst cilvēka dabai….
