The Foundation of the capitalist industry was laid by means of the state of taking the property rights of individuals, in the exercise of its authority. This has taken its course by means of a revolution that has been just as bloody, as any, in history.
The separation of the masses of people from the means of production, has caused the masses to become dependent on the government and corporate capitalist who oppress and exploit them. This condition of the poor masses is necessary for the capitalist production.
The capitalist have laws that tax and fine the poor grievously! They have so many fines, fees and taxes etc., that by these means, the poor are “nickel and dimed” into further poverty and oppression.
From the very start, capitalist production is dependent upon commerce. As these conditions, which produce poverty, and friction worsens there is a greater need for military and police forces. The police terrorizes the poor and poverty stricken neighborhoods and the military terrorizes the poor and poverty stricken countries of the world. But yet, it’s the poor that pays these forces a salary while they inflict terror and injustice against them.
This is motivated by profits and gain, profits over humanity. Now lets look at the violence against the civilians in poverty. How did the masses of people get so imprisoned by the rich landlords and capitalists, that the people’s means of production have been robbed from them?
The masses don’t have the capability or the resources needed to produce their own underwear, socks or toilet tissue! This has been by systemic design. There is a plan in motion to enslave the poor, to make them dependent on corporate capitalist production. This in turn, robs the poor of their livelihood.
Consider technology and job loss accompanied by starvation wages. The machine tends steadily to displace the masses from “earning a living.” The machine saves the capitalist money on the cost of labor power and therefore increase profits for the rich.
Labor-displacing technology is becoming more evident in our everyday lives. Self-service grocery checkout lanes are replacing clerks (but the prices of the products don’t go down since they don’t have to pay a clerk, so now the rich get more for less, you bag your own groceries and pay the same price). ATM machines are replacing bank tellers etc. The driving force behind these technological advances are “PROFITS”- more money for the rich oppressors.
The transition from human labor to machine labor is accompanied by the greatest suffering to the poor and impoverished masses. The people are becoming “useless” and thrown out into the streets, into the hells of oppression. The introduction of machinery means a violent industrial revolution against the poor.
With this change, economic development has become the triumphant march of rich landlords and corporate capitalism. However wretched the home of the poor may be, however miserable his food, the capitalist is not repentant or sorrowful of the sickening sight.
Lets look at another entrapment of the capitalist which violently rob the poor. The “AUTOMOBILE.” Is it a blessing or a curse? Hand in hand with the development of production goes the oppressive system of transportation. The more production the more transportation. The vehicles in the poor neighborhoods become oppressive money pits.
The streets are riddled with pot holes, constantly beating up on these ‘overpriced’ and low quality machines. These machines bring in great amounts of profits for the capitalist. Parking fees, inspections (with the check ‘engine light” hoax), ticket fees, registration fees, gas, oil, tires, engine repair, transmission repairs, starters and all the Automobile parts and accessories we must buy for the vehicles to keep them running- and for us to have the permission to operate them ‘legally’ without more fines.
The accessories and parts for thee vehicles are not built to last, but they are made with low quality parts to keep the masses of people buying and spending.
The priority given by capitalist to the automobile gets stronger and stronger (that’s why automobile factories received the bank bailouts, automobiles are a cash crop): city planning is subject to the requirements of the automobile. Roads are built instead of houses for the homeless. The capitalist has created a need of the automobile for their benefit once again. Automobiles have made the quality of life difficult for over populated cities. To maintain the automobile is a very high expense, gas emissions pollute the air, the chemical fluids such as engine oil, break fluid and transmission fluid pollutes the earth and water, just to name a few.
But, for the rich capitalist, only profit, riches and gain matters. It has been through violence of the most brutal repulsive kinds, that the capitalist society has been ushered in. Listen to the prophetic language of the holy scripture:
Revelation 18:4…Come out of her (capitalism) my people, that ye be not partaker of her (capitalism) sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues…
The radical communist/socialist teachings of Jesus Christ spoke of a time when the roles of the classes in society will be changed.
Luke 6:20 “And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said, Blessed be ye poor: for yours is the kingdom of God.”
Luke 6:21 “Blessed are ye that hunger now: for ye shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now: for ye shall laugh.”
Luke 6:24 “But woe unto you that are rich! for ye have received your consolation.”
Luke 6:25 “Woe unto you that are full! for ye shall hunger. Woe unto you that laugh now! for ye shall mourn and weep.”
Message to the rich ruler:
Mark 10:21 “then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go they way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.”
Mark 10:22 “And he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for he had great possessions.”
Mark 10:23 “And Jesus looked round about, and saith unto his disciples, how hardly shall they that have riches enter into the Kingdom of God!”
Mark 10:sa24 “And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus answereth again, and saith unto them, Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the Kingdom of God!”
Mark 10:31 “But many that are first shall be last; and the last first.”
