America’s Economic Past, Present Economic Darkness and …………. Future Fate

I’ve written incessantly about corporate capitalism over the years. Most of it unpleasant. One of the greatest brainwashings of our time is that a large percentage of our population is indoctrinated into their own subjugation of beliefs rather than science or facts.  This has created our own voluntary enslavement-

There will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda and brainwashing, and brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution.

I’m going to be writing of this topic next by tying together more than a dozen years of posts on corporate capitalism into a simple-to-digest summary post.  But, in the interim, for whomever is reading this, I would encourage you to consider the consequences of the following dynamics-

Our nation was founded as an agrarian nation.  From there it morphed into an agrarian and citizen-owned businesses.  From there an agrarian, citizen-owned and corporate businesses. From there a citizen-owned and corporate businesses.  To now, what is a corporate economy. 

So, the timeline is 1) agrarian > 2) agrarian/citizen > 3) agrarian/citizen/corporate > 4) citizen/corporate > 5) corporate.  These are generalities as there are still citizen farmers and citizen-owned businesses but those numbers have continued to collapse over decades and centuries.  As I noted in a few posts of 2020, new business creation in the U.S. has collapsed 90% since the election of Ronald Reagan. That is generally available information I linked to from U.S. government data.

And, don’t fall into the trap of calling this corporatism as has become so common in our brainwashed world. Corporate capitalism is and always has been corporatism.  You’ll understand why in my next post if you don’t already appreciate that fact. 

There is no free market.  There is no omniscient god of the market that is the arbiter of all things good. And, there is no reality that market arbiter is more efficient and desirable than democratic government as is so often believed.  There are only possibilities of fair markets created through democracy and citizen self-rule. And, with my next post, you’ll understand those have never existed whenever corporate capitalism is involved.
