The Twilight of Capitalism

by Fábio de Oliveira Ribeiro Tuesday, Jan. 17, 2012 at 12:12 PM

Those who defend more capital will be the instrument of destruction of capitalism.

The slave model of production did not end for lack of people who could be enslaved. The feudal system did not end for lack of land to be protected. The socialist regime did not end for lack of beliefin social equality. And capitalism will not end for lack of capital.

What destroyed the slave regime was precisely the rebellion of the people who were usuallyconquered and enslaved. What destroyed the feudal system was excessive protectionism which prevented the expansion of trade. What destroyed socialism was the inequality between the owners of the party
and the rest of the people. What will destroy capitalism is the dominance of capital over the public interest.

Each economic system carries within itself the seeds of its destruction. None of them has been or will be eternal. Unlike the claims of the uncultured, History has not ended.

Capitalism may have survived the real socialism, but because of financial crises ever more constant and severe, the corrosion of the State's capacity to fight them and resistance of the capitalists to pay taxes and give way to public interest, this system of production does not will last longer than the slave model of production or feudalism.

It is a fact: the greatest enemy of capitalism is capital itself, is the fact that capitalists cling a lot to the power that emanates from it. Who will destroy capitalism, therefore, are not their enemies but their own friends. And the debris of capitalist societies a new model of production will emerge. What is this, however, still do not know.
