Despicable’s Planned Global Utopia (The Time is Now)


I received this interesting series of comments from Despicable re a post I made re Obama’s Economics. It is instructive to read his posts to understand the scope and depth of the change the Left considers reasonable and necessary for equality and efficiency. Read the well presented words and sense, as I did, the cold articulation that ignores the inevitable loss of liberty to the citizens of the U.S. Despicable does not care about such issues as liberty, death (he equates Capitalism on a par with past atrocities of the Left). All concerns are childish banter of the ignorant. 


Despicable: Everything everywhere from the beginning of time to the present day has a beginning and an ending, nothing lasts forever. Change is the only constant on our planet and in the universe. This being a proven fact of all that exists, I am persuaded to ask this question. …Why attempt to prevent necessary change from taking place? …Is it because of unscientific dogmatic bias? It is unscientific bias to hold onto that which no longer has relevance and has been rendered by the passage of time no longer useful, and consequently out of step with existing circumstances, situations and conditions. That which is no longer a positive influence inside the surroundings of our existence should be replaced by that which is a positive influence, … and it will always come to pass when the only change possible to take the place of that what exists, … is the diametric opposite of what already exists.

The diametric opposite of an economy that is market oriented and not planned is an economy that is planned, … and designed to profit not individual capitalists of our planet, …but rather.. profit equally, all of the people of our planet, without discrimination or prejudice.

What makes this economic change possible and necessary is the change in our means of producing goods and services. The technological revolution on our planet has made it possible to satisfy all of the needs of everyone everywhere on our planet. No one no longer needs to not have what is needed to live well and survive well because of our scientific and technological advances.

Those that are concerned about our tanking individual unplanned capitalist economy, should give some thought to the opposite view of an economy that is social and planned so as to profit the mass of people in the world without discrimination or prejudice.


Me: Planned by the State….tell me where it has really worked? Tell me where Liberty is not sacrificed and the greater evil lurks…far greater than the supposed evils of Capitalism……..


Despicable: Dog eat dog competition can be tolerated under the condition of material scarcity! …When people are hungry for that what is necessary to survive and thrive,then that what is scarce and necessary becomes a status symbol. A society that values what takes great effort and ruthlessness to acquire and achieve is understandable and commendable. The law of the jungle promotes survival of those that are the strongest and the most fit.
But then again observation of animals in the jungle shows that when animals inhabit a jungle environment that has no scarcity of food and water, those animals are inclined to be non- aggressive, cooperative and social among their own kind.
Which is evil and which is saintly? Is capitalism better than socialism or communism? This question cannot be answered in the abstract. It can be only understood and evaluated within the context of an existing environment. To do otherwise is stupid!
It would also be helpful to be able to objectively define what you are for and against and why!
