Dr Wolff from Democracy Now on Capitalism vs Fascism (but not vs communism)
As always, Wolff is intentionally evading the reason for the development of Fascism – as a NATIONAL defense against INTERNATIONAL Communism, given that RULE OF LAW (capitalism) opened the door to international communism (like it has here in the west again in pomo-pc-woke form), and that it is international communism that was responsible for the terrors of the debate between the three poles of political preference.
Wolf is a subtle underminer (sedition) of rule of law because he and his tradition holds the false belief that a group of human professional executives could do better. The point of rule of law is that all humans are the same, and equally corruptible, and deterministically abusive of power. The frailty in western civilization is nothing to do with capitalism – which like communism or anarchism cannot exist – is that we didn’t complete the rule of law program by prohibiting the set of crimes possible using ‘words and money’: free riding, rent-seeking, privatization of common gains and socialization of losses, and false promises that bait into a hazard. What would happen if we did? It would be very clear who undermined western civ, who created the present crisis, and how easily it was to fix it, and how rapidly the working and middle classes would be rescued from their current re-imposition of serfdom by ‘experts’.
Dr. Wolff at democracy now shows how storytelling (overloading), pilpul (sophistry), and critique (undermining) and suggestion (deception), and false promise (baiting into a hazard) of alternatives to rule of law – constraining both commoners and professional ‘elites’ can be used to deceive the public with ease, and under the guise of ‘democracy’ advance the interests of globalists, who are nothing more than predators on western civilization’s accumulated capital and the means by which we accumulated that capital – and no other civilization did: the reciprocal insurance, by force of arms, of self-determination, by self-determined means, using sovereignty in demonstrated interests, and reciprocity in display, word, and deed, thereby limiting us to productive, voluntary cooperation adversarial markets in all walks of life whether associative, cooperative, productive, reproductive, commons, polities, or wars.
The dirty secret of western civilization is that this formula – the group strategy of western civilization – is the most consistent, correspondent and coherent with the laws of the universe (including the formal, physical, behavioral, and evolutionary), and as such is the most rapidly innovative and adaptive of all civilization. This explains the bronze age expansion of the Indo-Europeans, the iron age of the Mediterranean, and the steel age of the north sea peoples. And that across these ages, the Europeans have dragged primitive mankind, whether African, South Eurasian, Indian, and now East Asian, out of their failure by 800ad, to discover and adapt to those laws. Why? Because the cost of adapting to those laws is the continuation of natural selection by the suppression of the reproduction of those unfit for the constant stress of constant adaptation: the underclasses. The development of Every civilization was halted by the expansion of the underclass – and justified by the elites that parasitically depended upon them.
The entire sequence of the marxist, neo-Marxist, postmodernist, pc-woke, anti-west&anti-white movement is simply a revolt against darwin’s explanation for the disproportionate rate of evolution of Europeans compared to all other civilizations. And in particular a revolt against the abuse of this strategy by the germans during the second world war. Ergo this is the reason for the vast expansion of pseudoscience begun by Marx, Boas, Freud, Bohr, and Cantor, exacerbated by the Frankfurt School, Gould, Lewontin, only refuted in the past decade by economics, genetics, neuroscience, and what passes for artificial intelligence. In and of itself, Democracy is the slow path to communist tyranny, decline, and death.
The maximum value of democracy is the middle class (people who produce) voting to veto the members of the government for their policy failure under rule of law. There is no wisdom of crowds. There is wisdom only in a tradition held by those crowds. And even so, there is no durable wisdom in any tradition other than the scientific rule – rule of law by the European traditional natural law – and all other traditions failed by 800ad. No man is a hero to his debtors. No civilization is a hero to its debtors.
