Recently the UK had what the not very impartial newspaper the Express today called a “narrow escape.” That narrow escape was avoiding the hard left policies of Labour and Jeremy Corbyn! The report fails to explain the cost of the escape which is unfortunately and potentially another five years of an hard right Conservative government propped up by the even more hard right Democratic Unionist Party.
The right wing are ultra capitalistic as the left wing lean towards socialism some of the British media even describe it as communism. The Left wing are perceived and presented as dreamers usually unemployed, drug taking lay abouts and the right wing cannot get rid of the image of being racists, simply minded drunks.
The truth is in most cases they are both the left wing and the right wing are missing the point, capitalism, socialism and even communism could all be effective systems and they could all potentially work. They can also all be potentially oppressive and led us directly in to slavery.
I don’t believe the ideology politics to be that important and though most people that read my blogs and watch my videos probably think that I hate capitalism its not true. It’s unregulated corporate anarchy that we live in today that I have a problem with.
Our politicians fight for the rights of banks and corporations while taking the rights of their own citizens whom they seem to think they own. As long as we have a distribution of wealth and property as unbalanced and unfair as we do we are destined to fail as a society. As long as we have rich aristocratic, bankers and individuals worth more than certain nations but still children starve and go hungry we deserve to fail as a society. A society that feeds and helps the rich extort while failing to feed the poor has already failed.
Regulated capitalism with massively increased tax commitments to high earners and corporations could potentially work as well as socialism and communism as long as the government chose the regulate the businesses instead of regulating the individual. The problem with capitalism is money talks and maybe capitalism by its nature will always be easily exploited by the money holders.
Socialism and Communism will not just change everything instantly because the rich are already rich and powerful. Socialism and Communism will either be fought hard by the establishment or they will attempt to control and manipulate it like they do with capitalism.
For me political ideology is not everything or even that important what is important is distribution of wealth and land. Arguing for communism or socialism is pointless without removing the already obscenely rich it would just led to us being in the same position we are now, slaves to the wealthy.
