Capitalism: An Old World Order

Capitalism: An Old World Order

Capitalism, Especially Its Corporate And Monetary Components, Act As A Failed Attempt At A Type One civilization.

Since the end of World War II, the international world order of political apparatuses such as the United Nations has established a defacto global community in which institutions and individuals can interact in a mutually neutral environment. Lesser-remembered international agreements started during this time includes the economic agreement known as the Brenton Woods agreement. This became basis for the international currency known as the Petrodollar, derived is from the US dollar as an international standard of exchange. Political networks entangle the United States with the supranational institution of NATO, alliances with Arabian oil kingdoms like Saudi Arabia, policies of regime change and economic hitmen to orient other nations's economic policies, amongst many other questionable policies and trends. A structure of corporate conglomerates formed as a reaction by markets to the hegemonic nature of the Petrodollar. This resulted in structures of corporate networks among the world's 43,000 transnational corporations; forming an economic core of 1318 mega corporations controlling 80% of global revenue. Within this corporate core resides large financial institutions like Barclays, JP Morgan, Deutsche Bank, HSBC, AXA, etc; as well as the worlds largest oil companies such as Exxon, BP, etc.

Together, the monetary structure of the United States's World Bank and the European Union's International Monetary Fund that facilitate the global currency system, challenge by the Brazil-Russian-India-China-South Africa alliance of the BRICS Development Bank, in addition to the Chinese based Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank is putting pressure on the global hegemony of the Petrodollar. Such economic struggles will fail to solve economic issues and will result in corporate consolidation of the global economic system. In order to prevent further chaos and hardship, we must assess our current situation and prevent new mistakes and errors.

By allowing private capital to transcend national boundaries via multinational corporation's, banking institutions, and other structures of privatized wealth; the corporate core network of 1318 transnational corporations form a de facto global structure. The global structure of the worlds largest multinational corporation's with resources of all areas of industry and from all creations of civilization that also consist of the banking institutions that drive the currencies of the world, with a particular emphasis on the global petrodollar system; results in a corporate-monetary system that generates its own conception of wealth, growth, and development that completely negates the thought of "externalities". Also known as the consequences of actions taken by these corporate entities, especially in context to macro level phenomenons and potential large scale repercussions. The global structure systematically installs permanence and legitimacy to plagues of civilization such as inequality, war, poverty, illness/disease, and other repercussions of the privatization of capital extracted through a market system that commodifies resources into capital capable of utilization by the owner of said capital.

The globalization of private capital is as contradictory as it is paradoxical. Its efficiency in transforming resources into capital that is networked rapidly across the globe in systems of consumerism in all areas of life will become its own self-destructive mechanism. The direct association of this defacto world structure has overseen the complete devastation of the world's biosphere through its incompetencies and internal failures, mistakes, and contradictions. But even with these immense failures, the industrial capability and capacity generated has the means of rapidly shifting into a new structure entirely.

The industrial capacity of over a century ago was capable of waging war on a global scale; and was able to repeat on a larger scale twenty years later with an industrial mobilization of war that waged for years. When the United States economy, the basis for which the global economy was later modeled, shifted from domestic production to war industry during the second world war; it only took six months to see a complete shift of priorities. Without a massive realignment of priorities, the global structure of the corporate-monetary system no matter what nation or alliances of nations control the system; will be incapable of solving the issues of the world in a manner that will place proper responsibility and accountability on achieving the tasks at hand, correcting past mistakes/errors, and ensuring the basis of a legitimate world structure. One that is capable of ensuring the collective intentions of the human species towards being wise custodians of the biosphere of Earth.

6 Things You Should Know About The Woman Who Can't Stand Modern Feminism

Yes, she wants to be heard too.


2018 is sort of a trap for this woman. She believes in women with all of the fire inside of her, but it is hard for her to offer support when people are making fools of themselves and disguising it as feminism.

The fact of the matter is that women possess qualities that men don't and men possess qualities that women don't. That is natural. Plus, no one sees men parading the streets in penis costumes complaining that they don't get to carry their own fetus for nine months.

1. She really loves and values women.

She is incredibly proud to be a woman.

She knows the amount of power than a woman's presence alone can hold. She sees when a woman walks into a room and makes the whole place light up. She begs that you won't make her feel like a "lady hater" because she doesn't want to follow a trend that she doesn't agree with.

2. She wants equality, too

She has seen the fundamental issues in the corporate world, where women and men are not receiving equal pay.

She doesn't cheer on the businesses that don't see women and men as equivalents. But she does recognize that if she works her butt off, she can be as successful as she wants to.

3. She wears a bra.

While she knows the "I don't have to wear a bra for society" trend isn't a new one, but she doesn't quite get it. Like maybe she wants to wear a bra because it makes her feel better. Maybe she wears a bra because it is the normal things to do... And that's OK.

Maybe she wants to put wear a lacy bra and pretty makeup to feel girly on .a date night. She is confused by the women who claim to be "fighting for women," because sometimes they make her feel bad for expressing her ladyhood in a different way than them.

4. She hates creeps just as much as you do. .

Just because she isn't a feminist does not mean that she is cool with the gruesome reality that 1 in 5 women are sexually abused.

In fact, this makes her stomach turn inside out to think about. She knows and loves people who have been through such a tragedy and wants to put the terrible, creepy, sexually charged criminals behind bars just as bad as the next woman.

Remember that just because she isn't a feminist doesn't mean she thinks awful men can do whatever they want.

5. There is a reason she is ashamed of 2018's version of feminism.

She looks at women in history who have made a difference and is miserably blown away by modern feminism's performance.

Not only have women in the past won themselves the right to vote, but also the right to buy birth control and have credit cards in their names and EVEN saw marital rape become a criminal offense.

None of them dressed in vagina costumes to win anyone over though... Crazy, right?

6. She isn't going to dress in a lady parts costume to prove a point.

This leaves her speechless. It is like the women around her have absolutely lost their minds and their agendas, only lessening their own credibility.

"Mom, what are those ladies on TV dressed up as?"

"Ummm... it looks to me like they are pink taco's honey."

She loves who she is and she cherished what makes her different from the men around her. She doesn't want to compromise who she is as a woman just so she can be "equal with men."

Believe It Or Not, Trump Is Not An Idiot

I know this headline is scary, but hear me out.


If we were to place all of the smartest people in the world on a stage, Trump would be sitting (angrily I'm sure) in the audience. I do not think that Trump is an extraordinarily smart man. In fact, I wouldn't even consider him an ordinarily smart man. However, to call him an idiot would somehow diminish all of the harmful things he has done. To call Trump an idiot is to take away from how dangerous he truly is. To be clear, he is not dangerous because of his status, or his power, or even his money. He is dangerous because of his hate. If all of the hostility that man carries isn't enough, he holds alongside him a troop of people as equally, if not more so, hateful than he is. What is more dangerous than an old bigot you ask? An old bigot who is less intelligent than his supervisors. There is something much more daunting about an old man who can not make decisions for himself.

Often the criticisms I see of Trump and his administration center around his personal intelligence, capability, and shortcomings. Very rarely do I see the same attacks on the people guiding him, supporting him, or enabling him. Although I think Trump is a vile human being, I think he is often a distraction. At the end of the day, Trump cannot pass legislation by himself, he cannot fight wars on his own, and he can't run this country into the ground by his lonesome (granted I believe he wishes he could). To be completely transparent I think the latter action has been happening for decades. I think we have made, as a country, some very very poor decisions that have led us here. Although I think we are seeing a cascade of events that have been placed like dominos by our democracy, my focus is on the current situation.

So where does that leave us? In wildfires that our president blames on poor use of controlled deforestation while simultaneously cutting funding to conservation programs? In the potential wake of empty and careless threats of nuclear warfare? In states with steadily deteriorating infrastructure and education? In hospitals that we cannot pay bills for because our healthcare has slowly been torn from us?

It is important to remember that there are, unfortunately, people with much worse intentions than Trump. There are people working every day to mold the country into what works best for them. We are so often distracted that we forget that one family holds 40% of the wealth in this country, that our economy is disenfranchising a large majority of us, and that innocent people are being killed every day. We are blind to the lives we are destroying in this country and others. We are so caught up in whatever Trump is doing we don't realize that there are systematic problems our representatives avoid fixing like solutions are a plague. I think that there are many things wrong with this country, far beyond nepotism and narcissism. One of them is our inability as a society to hold all folks accountable.

Trump is not an idiot. He is an entitled man who was born into wealth and fortune. He is a predatory man that has had to do little by himself for his entire existence. I think he is a puppet, being moved by much more malicious hands than his own.
