The rich will do anything for the poor but get off their backs. –Karl Marx
The UK Tory Party are the Political Wing of the Ruling Classes who want Capitalism to survive but as Ancient Slave Society followed Primitive Communism and Capitalism followed Feudalism so Society Changes and Socialism will succeed Capitalism eventually …..
MAO.. continued ( In his Little Red Book )
“The Ideological and Social System of Capitalism-
resembles a dying person who is sinking fast,
like the sun setting beyond the western hills, and
will soon be relegated to the museum”
Reform of the English Parliamentary System would be a good place to start
First the House of Lords and then the House of Commons all with the consent of the People.
” However much the reactionaries try to hold back the wheel of history,sooner or later revolution will take place and will inevitably triumph”
Capitalism “sows the seeds of its own destruction”?
What does Karl Marx mean by Capitalism
“sows the seeds of its own destruction”?
Karl Marx had several reasons, mostly independent of each other, to believe that capitalism would plausibly self destruct.
The first reason is that of which the proletariat would suffer escalating relative immiseration.
The second reason is that Marx believed competition would in due course, drive the effective rate of profit to zero.
The third reason is that Marx saw capitalism as subject to an infinite cycle of boom and bust, which was the case in his time
The fourth reason is not stated explicitly by Marx, rather, it is implied.
The reason is that of which the combination of the immiseration of the proletariat and the “manufacture of scarcity”, that is, the deliberate generation of poverty in order to keep the proletariat under control, would become so obvious that they would simply find capitalism morally repugnant.
