Twitter talk back, Karl Marx
All the chatter about 'SocialMedia'
Its just talk-back radio without the sound, people, a sad substitute for actual polity.
As likely to engender red-necked rabble deluded into fanatic service of their overlords, or soon-to-be overlords
than it is likely to free them of their mind forged manacles,
Twitter has Bibi squatting in a paid position over the #palestine thread .... .raboinu shel oylim , there are people who mistake this for democracy...
#Libya is squatted upon by AlJazeera, the folks who sold you the war on Libya (remember, that place with free education, healthcare, water... seems like a long ago idyl already, dont it?)
Its as as offensive as any shock-jock
Heres a Bibi brute (my guess is a Russian faux Jew, bribed by an apartment in a Zionist outpost)
did google really censor this? is that a Jew thing?
Reading some Karl Marx. How absurdley correct the old buggar was! My reaction is to scream 'say it aint so' when he says that profit can only be made on the last act of labour done on some good. All previous labour and capital are in the price paid for the unprocessed item.
What about inventiveness? Doesnt the surplus theory imply a perfect market? ie all capitalists are presumed to have perfect access to the latest machinery?
Then I look at Shenzhen and its coal-fired trainer factories. That tiny amount of dollar paid to that girl making that shoe, justifies moving the entire enterprise halfway around the world. QED the correctness of Marxism. Now we are in the final stages, where the Imperial heartland workers are discarded. Unlikely the profit system can sustain itself on luxury. People just aint gonna pay $200 for those diesel trainers. There juat arent enough rich. And the rest of us know the real cost (I paid $8 for mine from a 3rd wrld barrow)
Steel (Bessemer 1860's)
Fertiliser (Haber commercialised by BASF in 1910-3)
Oil (Howard Hughes snr rotary bit 1909)
Shipping containers (1965?)
Integrated Circuits (1980?) fibre optic cables(1990?) TCT/IP (1980)
And still old Karl has the best description in town.
The only feasible parallel theory is that of energy cycles: Coal, then Oil, then Methane (this has stalled) then ?
Loooks like wer're in for an indefinite period of stagnation. After all the uprising of the Proletariat was always a moral adjunct, an exhortation, not part of the rigorous theory.
The Theory predicts only stagnation.
Much more likely an indefinite apathetic lethargic tolerance of "unemployment"
The only question is: will the absence of cheap energy mean a return to feudal barbarism, or will nation-states persist indefinitely.
Seems unlikely that the ideology behind the nation will withstand t absence of energy,income, or even free water.
So what will Collapse look like? Barons with cellphones? something like Russia, I suppose with a shrinking miserable population, and something like Africa on the perimeter, chickenshit farming. I suppose that most of the worlds people, who now live in urban favela/barrios with no food and now no cash, will quietly die.
Ya just never know, we may see them marching into town. Just hope its their authentic liberation theyre after, not some fantasy of freedom fed by some greedy baron.
