Uta’s Diary, Beginning of Nov.2019

Just a couple of days ago I made this comment:

I would like to reblog this to auntyuta. In my opinion a lot of it what you say about conditions in America applies to Australia too! Just ignoring all the facts and pretending we can continue having these magnificent living standards for ever and ever, can make the situation only worse. Changes in our living standards are bound to come. I am sure we can adapt, if only, if only disastrous wars can be avoided somehow. Uta from Australia

I commented to the following post and actually reblogged it:

Here’s How Much Worse Things Will Get If Capitalism Isn’t Overthrown

‘Here’s How Much Worse Things Will Get If Capitalism Isn’t Overthrown’

Looking at this headline again, a few thoughts enter my mind. I imagine the majority of people in a majority of prosperous first world countries so far did rather well under capitalism, but even in properous countries the people at the bottom who at this stage do not so well under capitalism, these people increase more and more, that is for more and more people at the bottom all over the world things already get worse and worse. And soon it will affect also people who at the moment still do rather well. However a lot of the true capitalists are going to stay at the very top for quite a bit longer and they probably will be able to avoid a lot of the hardship that most other people have to suffer.

My worry and great concern is that if the masses are going to try to overthrow the very top people, that this will lead only to unimaginable disastrous wars. Isn’t it better to do anything to avoid such wars by continuing to do whatever is possible to reduce climate change in a peaceful way, and by for instance avoiding any clashes with the authorities? I think there are still a lot of things that can be achieved in a totally peaceful way!!

What do you think?

  1. I wouldn’t dignify this current economic vulturous greed as “capitalism”. It is just evil greed where the superwealthy are in a mad game of who can outplay the others at sucking money from the working class and make no contribution to the society. In which the “supergreedy” reside. Capitalism in its pure sense in a participatory system whefe a person can work to save their money and invest that money into a business that generates returns on that investment which ultimately allows the investor to live on their investments. This current greed does even bear a vague resemblance to capitalism. It is “Vulturism”. Thank you Uta for bringing this up.

  2. Hi Devon, good to hear from you! “Vulturism” just about says it all. Our culture promotes utmost greed. I agree with every thing you say. Thanks very much for commenting!
