Even more than an economic system, capitalism is a psychological instrument for manipulating and exploiting gullible, credulous, suggestible human beings. It’s about “pressing your buttons”, about working out what makes you tick in order to sell you more stuff. It’s about operant conditioning to control your behaviour. Where religion wants to control you by making you fear God, capitalism wants to control you by making you desire to be treated like a God... while you have the money to buy things.
Capitalism’s task isn’t to make you a perfect person, but merely a perfect consumer.
Capitalism is purely about enriching those with capital. It’s about the Profit Principle. Not only is it strictly amoral, it turns out to be an ideal vehicle for empowering psychopaths, and pandering to the psychopathic and narcissistic traits of profoundly unsavoury people. The global epidemic of trolling by deeply disturbed individuals is a symptom of the way that capitalism tells egotists that the world is all about them, and they are entitled to trash anything they don’t like. Capitalism thus degenerates into crapitalism.
Capitalism is summoning all manner of sinister forces from humanity. Capitalism is a psychological experiment conducted economically. Those conducting the experiment are the super rich elite, committed to dynastic rule of the world via “free-market” globalism. The experiment’s inevitable output is crazier and crazier people, more and more desperate people, and people ever further from realizing their dreams.
John Maynard Keynes said, “Capitalism is the extraordinary belief that the nastiest of men for the nastiest of motives will somehow work for the benefit of all.” That’s capitalism in a nutshell. You need to be mad to believe that capitalism will have a good outcome for the human race.
