We are outstretching far away in our solar system, we have invented auto driven cars, but we are still impuissant to fathom our quotidian problems. Sciences and techologies are astonishing the world, but despite all this, millions of people are neglected, unhealthy and homeless, yet the youth of this epoch are unemployed. This Gordian knot is not confined just to backward countries with lack of resources but Extremadura, Cairo, Glasgow, Sao Paulo, Newcastle and London’s population are also suffering from this “living” crisis.
AU contraire, there are billionaires like US President Donald Trump, who move & ride in squad of luxury cars, reside in luxury apartments, own multimillion cruise, boats and fleetes, they knock around in their own planes, and an army of maids & servants care of them all the day and night. Wealth and power, in a few hands, has became truly killing. The wealth of only 85 billionaires is more than the combined wealth of the majority of people living on earth.
Workers, contriving in specialized food restaurants of Bourgeoisie, endure hungry just to meet the educational cost of their children. Today, the majority of ordinary people who fortunately get jobs are forced to work several hours in the struggle to restore their lives. The diseases such as tuberculosis and diabetes, which are very easy and possible to cure, have also returned back to the human community in the 21st century.
The present day economy is lifted up and dropped, intentionally & motively, factories are locked up, and the workers are told “we don’t need you more”. Unhealthy and Unemployed workers keep watching closed factories with hankering to see opened factory gates. The employees of the institutions are expelled, those who work in farms and stores are excluded, payee of multinational companies and of the banks are bewildermented suddenly “don’t come on work tomorrow”. In such a way, Bourgeoisie and owners get more cheap labour force in form of the needy and workless labor. People need items, items are available, but they don’t have money to buy. Where is humanity and integrity in all this system?
Liberal liars of capitalism are trying to tell us that it is “creative compulsion”. It is “common” for investors to throw away workers like bad tree leaves. According to them the market business operates the same, there is no solution. It was just like this, it’s going on and it’ll be like that. This is the human nature, that is the nature of business and that is the trend of the market.
On one side large residential colonies and large residential buildings are vacant, while on the other hand millions of people are in the slums and in the streets, but don’t worry it’s “human nature” in eyes of Liberalism. Today, in the 21st century millions of men, women, children and old are hungry, while the farmers are paid to keep the farms uncultivated. Millions of tonnes of food is drained but Liberalism excuseers tell us that this is all “human nature”. Store and warehouses are full of medicines floor to ceiling but people are dead due to easily curable diseases because they do not have money to buy cure. Should we reckon that this is all “human nature”?
In today’s developed century, why can humans not manipulate their era and their lives in such a planned pattern to bring good fortune for whole of humanity instead of some Bourgeoisie? Many people with all the skill required to cope with this problem are around us a lot. Today, humans can send rockets to Pluto and even more away, and can do even more wonderful things. But what is the reason? food, clothing, housing and medicines are available, even then millions of people are unable to meet these needs or are very vulnerable? Why? Why is this so? Have you ever thought about it?
Private landlords, investors and builders are just traders, as long as they don’t see a huge and profitable margin, they will not build houses just for human sake. These capitalists of free market are only interested in making money. If there is no bigger profit for the investors, there is no home for the people who are on the roads. Rather, the more you suffer, the more the investors will increase the profit margins. If you believe that the capitalist class will not try to deny these facts in all possible ways, then you live in utopia.
Bourgeoisie who possess almost everything, have only one intention of life; wealth. They do nothing on personal and idiosyncratic basis. They are “keeping” accountants and managers. Even if Bourgeoisie work, they do not work for some humanity sake, they work for more wealth. These Bourgeoisie earn wealth from other’s production and other’s hard work. They eat, drink and wear from other’s work, but return and handback nothing.
It is said that when Bourgeoisie invest, many jobs are created. “What the workers are given?”, is the real question. A small salary is given to poor workers for bare survival till next salary. And what benefits are taken from workers, billions of dollars!!! Do these Bourgeoisie invest in the love of people and sake of workers, or in the greed and cupidity of heavy and unlimited profit? Capitalists earn by exploiting labor, employees and workers. Current capitalist exploitation is not fairly transparent as of medieval slaves, where agricultural slaves were compelled to work for free on farms, but in fact both of these exploitations are two sides of the same coin. Capitalists take a lot of work from workers instead of low income in any condition.
During last century, capitalists made and produced wealth with the help & balm of science and technology. But today’s capitalists want to make money without the cause and distress of production. If you look at the Sunday Times Rich List, the richest people possess their wealth depending and lean on family heritage, insurance, banking and financial services. Many Bourgeoisie are making all-out profits from currency notes and sales of prize bonds. Whence infinite and never-ending greed, this class can put anything in danger. None of humanity exists in this class, they can even sell their mother for their profits. Aren’t these people making Billions from warfare indulging millions of innocent people as fuel for their profit? These Bourgeoisie use weapons of billions of dollars using their specific methods and political segments.
There are also such Bourgeoisie who give loans to different institutions on their terms, which are almost impossible to repay. People take loans from these investors and plant factories, on the basis of their strict terms and non-payment on interest, pledged factories and institutions are bought or confiscated by the investors, see the example of the richest person in the world “Warren Buffet”. Similarly, look at the examples of the “tool tax plazas”, what the hell these contractors are doing, what are they producing? Such investors are not producing anything, nor do they work hard but earn billions with “State Law”. Take an example of the investors in the banking system or take an example of the “investors” of the stock exchange. These all are blood-sucking Dracoola who are in their own way to make money. What a genius saying, “This is the era of making other’s wealth yourself.” Here’s another scene. They are unable to spend their wealth completely. Because there is a limit of luxuries, how many vehicles can be driven at once? These guys are crazy. Even after completing the tremendous wildish desire, their wealth remains useless Or spended on exploitation of small businesses or on achieving the highest positions. Yet most of their wealth remains useless.
We have been told that “work hard and you will be rich one day”. Following this formula, some workers get out of poverty. But a worker in the capitalist system remains only worker. Instead of improving the condition of laborers, hardworking is make their owners more rich. As proof, continuous reduction in worker’s share can be seen in the national income and the share of Bourgeoisie is growing rapidly.
Similarly, according to a Oxford Martin School report, around 50% of the employees in the world suffer from high risk. Yes! It’s absolutely right, fifty percent…!!! We are told that all this is due to the advent of robots. Robotics is replacing the human workers, so humans are being fired from work. Isn’t a tragedy? The inventions and developments must facilitate and succour the humanity, but under capitalism it is becoming plague. In fact, liberalism has no choice except to keep the laborers in piles or unemployed. What else is the failure? There is always a dire and ominous outcome of the violent situations. On one side people are deprived of resources, employment and power purchase, on the other side production seems production seems intensely increasing. Is this not a global crisis? When people will be unemployed and will not be able to buy anything, who will buy the goods? Ultimately the market will suffer, more than 2008, a terrible crisis will take place.
The sole absolute solution to this horrible, frightening and dangerous situation is nationalization of means of production. In particular, the largest 150 multinational institutions must be snatched away. Profits of planned production must be made to spent on society instead of pockets of few owners. If we do so, we will able to spend on schools, colleges and universities. The modern, comfortable and beautiful residential projects can be launched, and modern transportation systems will be there for people facilitation. With the help of the appropriate policies, elimination of environmental pollution can protect people from diseases. You can spend a lot on free hospitals and medicines. A planned economy can shorten the working hours of workers and reduce the retirement age.
We are told that “this is an inapplicable and stupid idea. How workers can improve the society? How workers can run society and resources of production? It is not possible for workers at all.” My question is why not possible? Yes, workers in the capitalist system are not able to construct the society. But in socialism it is true that only workers lead the society. These are, even today, the workers who are working all around us. The workers will tell exactly and appropriately how to operate their own workplace. They can run this better than existing owners. In today’s term “efficiency and ability” means how much the profit can be made on the basis of minimal expenses and wages. But, under the planned economy, “efficiency” will be how to bring more benefits for society and humans, whose better decision can’t be done more than the workers. Under the socialist economy, better production and better society will be constructed while reducing the working hours with the help of engineers, experts and scientists. If there were a planned production and planned economy today, nobody would be unemployed.
Heavy wastage under capitalism will be eliminated under the socialist planned economy. For example, wars and weapons costs today are becoming a mass burden on the society. Currently there are 15700 nuclear weapons in this world. Governments are planning to spend a trillion dollars on the widespread destruction in the next decade. What else is more crazy? Can’t these anti-human expenditure be replaced with pro-human expenses? We will not use our potential resources in wars, weapons and conflicts, but for our happiness and well-being. The skill of scientists will not be destroyed on the construction of more modern weapons or bomb or destruction, but will be used for the improvement and productivity of all.
Today, democracy under capitalism is actually the rule of Bourgeoisie, it’s the rich rulers who are protecting the interests of rich. We have an alternative to the dictatorship of the bankers and capitalists – a democratic government of working people – society established by workers, ruled by workers for the sake of workers. Let’s end the capitalism system. Build a society where “From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs”. Simply, a healthy society on basis of solidarity and harmony, and the suffering of capitalist system will be thrown into the wreck of history.
