Capital Circulation

The capitalist mode of production and the social relations necessary for its existence is a terrifying dynamic process. Capital, by its very essence, is value in perpetual search of additional value, produce by the workers in the process of production. The unquenchable thirst for additional surplus-value (unpaid labor) is the fundamental motor of economic growth, […]

The Oppressed & The Rise of Populism

Synchronized by the swing of the capitalist pendulum, economic isolationism has been closing inward but accelerating out on a course of equalizing. Now displaced, now restored. Taking shape is what looks like the nation state. It’s back. And one by one, the liberal and global ‘democracies’ of capitalism–their free market and open trade boarders– are […]

The Concealed War

Mr. Trump is the president elect and the best that can be said about his victory over Hillary Clinton is that his candidacy is the symptom of the popular desire for change. Across the board, the Republican campaign tapped into the growing apathy and lack of trust most Americans have in their government. Riding these […]

The Capitalist State

A capitalist society is biased upon the exploitation of labor. A small minority owns everything; the working masses own nothing. The capitalists command. The workers obey. The capitalist exploit. The workers are exploited. The very essence of capitalist society is found in this merciless and ever-increasing exploitation. Capitalist production is a practical instrument for the […]

God’s Social Genius Baffles Capitalists

Under capitalism, everything is game. Whether human life, labor power, earth, knowledge, ideas, thought or other abstract concepts: if it can be bought, sold, traded, invested in or speculated on it becomes commodified. Once absorbed by capital circulation all things are disciplined to the rigors of value creation. Profit for the sake of profit then […]

Fruits of Globalization: Poverty Wages

On October 2nd, 2016 the World Bank released an estimation that 767 million people live in extreme poverty, subsisting on less than $1.90 a day. Their poverty lines are for 15 of the world’s most dirt poor countries and typically calculate the amount of money that would allow a person to eat enough calories in […]

Jesus’s Church: A Political Body

Western theology has always preached that Jesus Christ is going unite humanity and put an end to strife and want. Most preachers, for example, speak beautifully about how the spirit of Christ in you can completely eliminate conflict and create a brotherhood of man. Nobody who calls themselves Christian can disagree. However, religious headmen place […]

The 2008 Financial Crisis!

The financial crisis of 2008 was the logical conclusion of free market development of the financial sector–itself the logical result of the incentives of capitalist competition. In that sense, the economic downturn demonstrates the inherent instability of capitalism itself. The story of the collapse starts and ends in the real estate market. Until a few […]

Why Communism?

When Jesus says, “Happy are the poor” and “Woe to you the rich,” he is not talking about riches in the absolute sense. That is, he is not condemning the physical fact of having great material resources. There is not that kind of asceticism in Jesus that almost instinctively hates well-being and abundance, the kind […]

The Coming Revolt Of The Guards

The idea of saviors has been built into the entire culture, beyond politics. We have learned to look to stars, leaders, experts in every field, thus surrendering our own strength, demeaning our own ability, obliterating our own selves. But from time to time, Americans reject that idea and rebel. These rebellions, so far, have been […]
