"The Capitalist Agenda" (and rejecting it for "fun and profit", maybe)



For the sake of journalism, I’ll present American Johnson’s “The Capitalist Agenda” (or “Here’s Wht Capitalism S___ and Why It Needs to End”, as an animated short (in a series).


It’s on his “NonCompete” channel.

He explains how capitalism replaced feudalism and how that did give the underclasses a new chance.

But only a few people get a chance to make it if they’re not already rich.

He also tries to debunk meritocracy.

You have to watch further videos to find out how to replace it.

Umair Haque seems to want to go back to a system of guilds.  So much for self-publishing.

No matter how good you are at your own goals, if you are seen as an enemy merely because of capitalism, you can be destroyed, he seems to be warning.  I’ve seen this threatening posture by the far Left before.  Except that this channel wants to “reject capitalism for fun and profit”.  That sounds like an oxymoron. 

Try this article from John Nichols in The Nation, when socialism "worked', if you like.
