Capitalism Cannot Function Without an Endless Supply of New Suckers

Have you ever wondered if capitalism could become a victim of its own “success” in ways other those put forth by Marx over a century ago. While it is certainly possible that the effects of declining profits and progressive impoverishment of the majority will derail capitalism in a world where there is not much left to plunder or conquer in an economically viable manner, there is an alternative (and possibly synergistic) pathway for things to fall apart.

The reason you have probably never heard of this ‘other’ pathway is because the conditions that made its existence possible are relatively new. Even today- most economic thought, literature and analysis is the product of people mired in the mindset of previous eras. It also helps that doing so keeps the rich patrons of these sophists (economists and intellectuals) happy and thereby ensures a steady stream of table scraps.

So how did I stumble across this pathway? Well.. it comes down to an extension of one of my observations about human beings. We are often told by “intellectuals” that human beings do things because they are naturally competitive. But how many people would jump through all the hoops and cripple themselves in ways that are considered “normal” in developed societies if they were really doing it for themselves?

What kind of moron would slave away for a house in the suburbs where he would be subject to the simultaneous tyranny of his aging hateful wife and municipal zoning guidelines? What kind of idiot slaves away to live his life surrounded by superficial and scheming people at work (colleagues) and home (neighbors)? What idiot would slave away in occupations that involved high stress or high levels of insecurity? What moron would enter vocations with decade long education and internship requirements but not much in terms of job security?

It is clear that the mindset, worldview and behaviors of the average blue- or white-collar person in all developed countries are blatantly irrational. So why do they persist, or more accurately- why was that behavior so prevalent in the past?

In one of my previous posts, I had put forth the idea that civilization as we know it is a ponzi scheme. I chose that particular term since it best describes the overall structure, mode of functioning and life-cycle of civilization. But it also describes how they grow and become bigger. Civilizations, like ponzi schemes, require a continuous influx of new naive members to scam, exploit, enslave and sacrifice. But why? Well for one you have to pay off the higher ranking (but non-apex) members in the scheme. But there is another reason especially relevant to the fate of capitalism in developed countries with low rates of fertility.

A significant minority of people who cannot move up the pyramid will eventually understand the true nature of the system, even if that realization occurs at a subconscious level.

Civilization always results in a significant minority of its members becoming cynical, disloyal and self-serving once they wise up. There is therefore a constant and unrelenting need for more naive suckers to replace and possibly help eliminate those who have wised up. Finding such new suckers was very easy in the pre-contraception era when the average women has more than two kids who lived to adulthood. But barely or below replacement fertility makes that much harder and hence we had immigration for decades. But today even countries like Mexico and India, not to mention China, have fertility rates that are close to or below replacement.

But what does any of this have to do with an alternate pathway for the demise of capitalism?

The answer to that question lies in the high level of similarity between civilization and capitalism in one area – producing cynical burnouts with nothing left to lose. However capitalist societies are also far more efficient at producing such individuals as they burn the inter-personal goodwill and institutional loyalty of their lower ranking members at far higher rates and levels than their pre-capitalist counterparts. Furthermore, the continuous and ultimately counterproductive competitions that characterize such societies are unsustainable in the absence of high level of growth and some wealth redistribution. The high ambient instability of careers in such societies, even those which involve a lot of personal investment and sacrifice, do not make things any better.

Many societies with these features attempt to stabilize themselves through social welfare programs and regulations to improve career/lifestyle stability. While such measures can be partially effective in the short to medium term, they fail in the long-term for reasons linked to human greed and short-sightedness. Moreover they do not produce fewer cynical burnouts- only slightly less bitter ones. There is a reason why even countries as ordered, stable and affluent as Switzerland, Germany and Japan are not full of highly motivated and enthusiastic people.

Now some of you will say.. but what about the USA? isn’t it an exception to the pattern of capitalistic societies having a significant number of burnt out and cynical people? and isn’t the per woman fertility slightly above replacement or something like that? Well.. let us go through each point.

Firstly the USA is not an exception to the pattern of capitalistic societies having a significant number of burnt out and cynical people. It was just a late comer to that club for reasons I shall explain in a moment. As I have previously said, ponzi schemes can grow and appear stable as long as they can afford to pay off the higher ranking (but non-apex) members in the scheme. So things looked great as long as those born between 1930 and 1945 were getting excellent jobs and enjoying the fruits of rapid and fairly egalitarian post-WW2 expansion. They started dimming a bit when those born between 1945 to 1961 started their working lives but things still looked good and the overall system had enough inertia to keep the real party going into the 1990s. The fall of the USSR, opening of low wage countries like China and India, low interest rates on credit and the housing bubble helped the USA stretch it into the mid-2000s.

But the real cracks were visible as early as the mid-1980s. It was the beginning of an era where wages of average people stopped keeping pace with productivity or inflation. It was also the beginning of a breakdown in the implicit social contract that had existed in the USA since 1933. Lifetime job and stable careers slowly became a thing of the past, as did the formal and informal social welfare system. While this trend initially affected only the blue-collar workers, by the early-1990s even white-collar workers started feeling its effects. While the tech boom in the later half of 1990s and housing bubble in the first half of the 2000s masked the decline somewhat, it was obvious to many that something fundamental about the system had changed.

But which age group is most observant about such subtle but fundamental shifts? Is it the people who grew up before the 1980s and 1990s or those who were born and grew up in those decades? My point is that the mindset, worldview and behavior of those in their 20s and 30s today is a far better indicator of where things will go. So what do we see in that group?

Do we see tons of optimism in that age group? How many of them believe in a stable livelihood or the possibility of lifelong relationships? How many of them have kids, let alone one or two kids? How many will eventually have more than two kids? How many of them trust institutions? How many of them believe in a bright future filled with endless opportunities for growth? How many of them are crushed under student debt and working part-time jobs that don’t require degrees? How many want to move to faraway cities? and if not, why not? and most importantly- are things getting better or worse?

My point is that people in that age group have, throughout the developed world, become cynical burnouts. Even more importantly- the system has far less leverage over them than their parents generation.

Now there are many minor yet highly publicized reasons for this lack of leverage, from the growth of the internet, game consoles and smartphones etc. But the two major reasons are seldom mentioned so let me do that for you. First.. you cannot threaten what does not obviously exist (their children) or things whose existence is a matter of blind faith (secure livelihoods, meaningful relationships). The threat of sudden job loss, intermittent poverty and a generally uncaring and cruel society cannot extract enthusiastic compliance from somebody who sees that as inevitable even if they play by the rules. You cannot threaten a long-term homeless guy with lifelong poverty, especially if he knows that his compliance does not guarantee you will honor your end of the deal.

Secondly- social pressures don’t mean a lot in societies where almost every relationship is superficial, adversarial or mercenary in nature. This is especially so in an era where less fucked-up alternatives are readily available. People are no longer restricted to interacting with those in their immediate physical vicinity and now often prefer those who are not. Who wants to hang around people they don’t trust, despise or don’t care about.

But what this have to with capitalism, especially its american incarnation? Let me put it this way.. capitalism requires the majority to work hard and sacrifice for the enrichment of a small minority. However getting the majority to keep on playing this rigged game requires a decent chance of mediocre rewards (real or imagined), skin in the game (future of their children, family, friends) and social reinforcement. Without them- even the best lies, propaganda and marketing become useless rather quickly.

In the past capitalism could get around such problems by tapping into the then almost limitless supply of naive young suckers and desperate wannabe-american immigrants. However we no longer have a surplus of naive suckers or desperate immigrants who want to be american- and that is not going to change anytime in the near future.

    So how does this play out? People stop buying stuff? one thing I’m interested in is the decline of private auto ownership. It’s too much for a retail worker to own a car. Often a family of retail workers will share a car. But even this is tough when there’s a 2000 or 3000 dollar repair.

    Most people are hopeless suckers, who think “bad stuff only happens to the guy who speaks out”(it almost always is the guy; women do not want to risk social ostracization or scare off the alphas).
    But quite a lot of the older generation also think they can push and bluster their way around, treating younger people like slaves.
    The shoe is on the other foot though, when they are shown to be “stupid with technology”, e.g.
    http://probaway.wordpress.com/2009/09/08/why-are-old-people-so-stupid-on-computers/
    A comment:
    Old people have so many reinforced neural pathways that they often can not change their habits to save their literally life. Their brain has lost its plasticity, and this is a major reason why old people are becoming a burden. They live longer and longer, but become less and less able to do anything useful.
    I would also add their infuriating platitudes and pollyanna thinking to the mix.

    As one of those “older people” (59), I’d argue that the vast majority of us are not of the opinion that (we) “they can push and bluster their way around, treating younger people like slaves” for the sake of doing so.

    Here is the problem with the rest of your stereotypical rant. People like me simply don’t care. I don’t think your mind can grasp that concept.

    I’ve got some harsh news for you. When we were in our younger days and well down the job/social ladder, those above us in job and social rank pretty well called the shots. After all, what twenty-something understands management? What twenty-something understands how production lines work and why they are designed the way they are? What twenty something understands the complexities of construction let alone truly complex systems in aeronautic or space application? The younger set graduating and then entering such professions haven’t mastered anything except the pleasing of their professors. Moving into their thirties these folks are just beginning to master these fields and generally do not come into their own both intellectually and professionally until their forties.

    Yes. You have to “earn” your way up through success rather than failure, and being an expert on your X-Box while your brain still has a level of plasticity to it is meaningless. Making certain that your calculations and knowledge guarantee that a building you are charged with design and construction won’t collapse, that aircraft design results in airworthy, reliable craft and that several billion dollars worth of launch vehicle and payload deploy properly are what matter, not your damn ego.

    Plasticize that.

    Therefore, guess what? Unless you happen to be stunningly gifted from an intellectual perspective, willing to humble yourself and demonstrate energetically a willingness to learn from those who have mastered particular fields, as well as understanding that there are people above you who are as or more intelligent than you, both academically and via this odd little phenomenon called “experience” (an invest of time while you brain becomes apparently brittle), you are going to be treated like crap because you are crap. Why? We were all crap. Back then and quite unlike today, we knew it.

    You don’t know shit. The amount of young engineers out there I have worked who don’t know shit is stunning. Oh yes, they have their little diplomas just as did the rest of us but have zero humility, believing that because they hold a piece of paper they are entitled to not only be treated as an equal despite having accomplished nothing but certification at the lowest of levels – a degree, but literally expect to be a “project engineer” by the time they hit thirty!

    I don’t give a damn what field you are in, what I just argued is a universal. Do you think some person who just got through their medical residency is as talented as the doc whose been employed in the profession for twenty years? An attorney who just passed the bar understands the law and can represent his clients interests as well as the trial lawyer who has been arguing before the bench for thirty years with a 90% success rate?

    In general terms, people, be they “professionals” or not, get treated the way they do because of the way they present themselves. Unlike the graduates of thirty to forty years ago (who I have previously argued knew we didn’t know shit compared to the experienced engineers above us and behaved accordingly), today’s paper holders are the direct opposite. Coddled by their parents and little different than their female counterparts, they are convinced they are “special”, have little or no desire to perform at any level above the minimum standards and then whine and cry when their yearly review grades them as “average.”

    When I’m working 50-70 hours per week on projects that have DEADLINES with PENALTY CLAUSES for running over the completion date and some self-entitled S.O.B. seven pay-grades below me would rather work on his golf handicap or whatever instead of “willingly” joining in and volunteer the overtime, guess what? He gets a shit review and treated like crap because he or she is crap. Real life – real problems.

    Plasticize that.

    Now to the article. The author is correct. The center has not held, greed and selfishness dictate everything, we are all nothing but cogs in a shitty, soulless machine, and this whole god damn thing is one breath of air from collapsing like the house of cards it is. In the meantime, the pussies ought to grow the hell up, quit their incessant whining, toss away their fucking computers, learn some survival skills, become competent with arms and shut the fuck up. Hell is coming and it wasn’t your elders with the plasticized brains that are bringing it on. It is the upper 5%-10%, and most particularly a small percentage of that who happen to be nothing more than well-dressed psychopaths. You’ve voted for them, some you’ve even idealized. Guess what?

    “They’re here.”

      Hey dope-o, I’ve got news for you:
      Any field where proper rigour is exercised, has VERY few graduates.
      Suck on that when you ask why so many companies fail – the biggest bunch of blowhard graduates are from the management and arts fields.
      I don’t answer to you or anyone else for that matter, so if I’ve pissed on your parade, all well and good – since I didn’t graduate with a mickey mouse qualification.
      The managers “you people” answer to are also the same people whose instructions you agree to follow to throw others under the bus.

      Yeah, bro, maybe because I’m average … company directors have to engage me as an independent advisor … because their own people are SOOO fantastic.

        Sum up in one line: Managers know everything, and can do everything.
        Other stupid thing: You are not an engineer with a diploma, maybe 50 years ago, grandpa.
        Oh, so why do they want workers then?
        Because they need someone to blame when things go pear-shaped.

Your bullshit job would get done by some random asian even if you were not born. You will live and die and no one will give a fuck what you did, I certainly don’t have any respect for some moronic fool who thinks its “impressive” that he busts his balls 70 hours a week, in fact I think you’re infinitely less of a man than someone who has figured out how to survive without doing so.

      Being all old and angry is not good for your health and stuff. At the very least go do a hot yoga class or something and decompress. You sound like you might blow a gasket if you don’t learn to relax!

      BTW: working 70 hours a week would be a soul crushing existence. I think maybe you should step back–or try telecommuting.

      Tell your boss you don’t mind working three days a week but won’t work more, and won’t work longer than 6 or 7 hours a day. Try it man, it will make you feel human again.

    You are talking about the kind of idiot or moron you are if you choose a suburban life with work and a partner. So far I follow you and agree with you but what kind of alternative do you have as a man? Living in a city is more expensive, but you can choose to live close to your workplace and sleep out every day. And you still need a job to eat, sleep and fuck. So again, you’re part of the system. If you want to fuck hot girls who pretend to like you, you need a damn good job. You can choose a pretty “safe” job, but does that still exist nowadays? You always have to lick the ass of the ones above you and you have to spend quality time to maintain your own functioning in the system. You have to “network” to keep friends and manipulate the work-field. You con or you get fired. And if you choose a “technical field” you’re really slaved away. Everybody profits from your work and you’re the soldier in the army with 90% officers. And I don’t believe in the “build your own business to be successfull” fairy tale. Most people who do this live the rest of their lifes in poverty.

    And what about later? If the system collapses, will things not fall back to the old days, where old people were taken care of by the children and their social network? If you’re sick then, who will take care of you? I live pretty much the same lifestyle as you do -and exactly for the reasons you give on your blog- but I sometimes wonder if it’s not the wrong one if you extrapolate to the future. Cities are becoming warzones. Social security is fading away. Who will be the winner in the end? Agree, we fuck far more hot chicks than our suburban ugly-wife drone collegues but where will the stick be 30years from now? We life in a flat somewhere in an anonymous and dangerous city while our workerdrones live in a good neighborhood and take care of the grandchildren and have their days filled… Sometimes I wonder…

    @John: I agree it’s our generations own fault. 95% of our generation still believe the fairy tale and keep the system running and we’re hanging ourselves. There is a reason why all our technological inventions happened around the moon landings. Since then humanity started losing hope.

      I think the point is, if you’re going to see hookers, it only makes sense if you do it at least a couple of times a month. Comparing that to getting no sex, its a heck of a lot of cash. Sex addiction doesn’t necessarily mean going daily (but then again, maybe he really does mean frank addiction).

      No, I have not, Mr.International,

      If you look at it the right way, everything can be seen as an addiction. But proscribing certain behaviors is not the solution.

      • June 2, 2014 at 3:31 pm

        While everything can be seen as an addiction, certain things requires rehabilitation. Sex addiction is not a real addiction, especially in comparison to addictions to drugs, sugar, alcohol and the likes where overdosing on chemicals causes the body to become dependent on those things. Who do you know has ever broke out in cold shivers or hives because they have gone days without sex, exercise or pizza and burgers? Drugs, sugar and alcohol differ due to certain chemicals the body is hooked on.

        Yes, some folks are addicted to things like certain foods, media, sex and such, but that’s just plain gluttony.

      Also remember that there will be uggo women who tell you “Don’t have high standards!”.
      Watch those harpies, they speak lies.
      Ugly women are just as entitled as beautiful ones, so if you are going to take crap, might as well be from a beautiful one.
      Also, the longer you spend around uggos, the more you accept them. This is why women hate being around ugly guys for long – they know this psychological trick your mind plays on you.
      As well, keep in mind: if the amount of dates you have gone on costs more than an escort/hooker/runaway and you still have gotten no sex:
      YOU ARE BEING TREATED AS A CHUMP.
      Listen to our Lord Gandy, he can aware you of some things.

      The Book of Gandy

      Vol. 1

      1. For let it be known that I am thy Lord and Savior and I have showeth my love for thee: For you were all sinners, and I have sent my only son Zyzz to die for you, so you can walk the plains of the eternal catwalk

      2. And I say to thee that I have been crucified with Zyzz and I no longer liveth, but Zyzz liveth in me. The life I liveth in the body, shall be yours for the Son who loved me and gave himself for me.

      3. For you all shalt know that whoever believes in me shall not perish but have a new life on the eternal catwalk

      4. Therefore I tell you do not worry about your height, or about your earlobes, or about your midface. Is not life more than a catwalk? Look at the photographers in the studio, do they not have negative canthal tilts, yet they work and fuck since the day they were born?

      5. I tell thee do not worry, aren’t you worth more than a meager photographer? You shalt know that you are my favorite child and I shall bestow the road of thy life!

      6. For you should know that when the day of the final photoshop cometh all shall be put in their rightful place.

      7. So therefor I tell you blessed be your zygomatic arch my child for thou shalt be morphed with your father’s blight.

      8. And I will show you wonders on the interwebz and in the photostudio: sex and drugs and rock and roll

      10. Fear not my children for Zyzz shall be returneth into the plains of the living, and the Sodini our holy martyr will walk the health clubs once more, for you shalt know that before the coming great and awesome Day of The Final Photoshop, I shall grant thee all your wishes fulfilled and that whoever calls on the Name of the LORD shall be saved.

      11. Blessed be thee my child for you knoweth that you are the chosen one

      12. Blessed be thee my child with the pure soul for you knoweth that one does not asketh what the catwalk can do for you, the one with the pure soul only asketh what he can do for the catwalk.

      13. Blessed be thee my child for you do not asketh on how much sex your midface brings and you worry thyself not on your zygomatic arch, for you know that I am thy God and Savior and I will morph thee on the Final Day

      14. And as it is written in the book of the acne, when one betrayeth his holy Father’s trust, all the furies and beasts of hell shall be let loose upon thy wretched face, for you shall know that I am thy lord and father and thou shalt have no false idols before me

      15. and an eternal pox shall be on the spiteful ones who dare to defy me, for they shall be morphed into a potato for now and for eternity

        PUAhate . com is filled with incel and gaeysthetics morons. I don’t want to have escaped one cult of misinformation, scams, delusions, and wasted time (PUAssybegging), just so I can then fall for another such cult (gaeysthetics). Oh, and these folks need to learn what real involuntary celibacy means like I have (severe physical illness and poverty) and get back to me.

        There are lots of involuntary celibates out there, I wouldn’t be surprised if its 20+% of the male population 18-59 of age.

        @The Plague Doctor
        They do have a point though, don’t they?
        As in:
        Do not spend money or interest towards women who want to use you.
        In other words – which hurts more:
        Being friendzoned after buying dinner,
        or
        Being friendzoned before?
        Besides, they have found a way to manage their hurts, and in so doing will be the first corps of men to break the (extortionate, fraudulent) PUA mindset that “Looks don’t matter”.
        The male model experiments are very revealing too.
        Also:
        Consider that a woman interested in a guy … would not care about his circumstances or manners: Note the Van Bael model experiment.
        You can be not incel if you have sex with homeless women.
        However for most men with taste, that is not an option.
        Besides, every woman you avoid spending money on …
        is money that is still IN YOUR POCKET.

        in·vol /ɪnˈsel/
        noun
        1. A man who, despite repeated evidence to the contrary, still believes in the notion of romantic love.
        2. A man, who despite repeated evidence to the contrary, does not believe in the existence of prostitutes, escorts, brothels, sex vacations, sugar arrangements, and sluts.
        If you are in good health, and have a 100 $ bill, then you are not ‘incel’, whatever the puahate/misc cultists try to convince you.
        Period.
        And if you say, “b…but… nobudy wubbs me” or “b…but… I want a wife and a family”, then fuck you (and get a clue).
        I have an intense hatred for self described ‘incels’, as I have actually been involuntarily celibate, a.k.a. physically ill, impotent, and broke, for several years.

        EvilOne :
        There are lots of involuntary celibates out there, I wouldn’t be surprised if its 20+% of the male population 18-59 of age.

        Don’t project. That’s one problem with ‘incels’ and gaeystheticians: they don’t care about facts or statistics. According to the General Social Survey (GSS) 1972–2012, only 6% of the male population 18-59 has had zero sex partners in the last 5 years, not >20%. Moreover, it should also be mentioned that 7% percent of the females also has has no sex partner in the last 5 years. Asexuality is also a sexual orientation, which explains most of it. Also the GSS shows that the “80-20 rule” (80% of women having sex with 20% of the men is complete bullshit, but that’s for another time, maybe I’ll do an article when or if I get around to starting my own blog.)

        Penis Ray,

        If you think you can get any woman for more than a one night stand without spending any money you are deceiving yourself. Again, the GSS shows a man’s probability of being married is about 0% if your net worth is 0 $ and 100% with a net worth of 1 000 000 $, with a linear relation in between. (For women there is zero correlation.)
        Also regarding sex frequency, the GSS shows that those male respondents with the highest income have the most frequent sex (again a linear relation). With an income at 25 000 $ a man’s probability of having no sex in the last year is about 5%, whereas if a man is broke it’s 11%. Extrapolating the data to higher incomes gives 0%. (That is, the man-O-sphincer’s contention that most women would rather sleep with a broke druggie than which a rich lawyer is also a load of shite). I could go on, but if you are not convinced you will probably never be.

        Well, I have a penis, so thanks for recognising that.
        If you think you can get any woman for more than a one night stand without spending any money you are deceiving yourself.
        Uh, you do know that there is little point for getting the “any woman” for more than a one night stand if she’s seen more pricks than a cactus farmer, right?
        It’s like you’re becoming the permanent john for a whore …
        why would you do that?
        You should also read this:

        and
        dalrock.wordpress.com/2010/10/12/is-marcos-evil-for-conning-women-looking-to-trade-sex-for-financial-security/

        I am not saying that you must “give up women”.
        I am saying that while you are (currently fruitlessly)interacting with them, there are currently, FRUITFUL things that you could be doing.

        Also, why marry someone who is likely to divorce you?
        Hint: Most women after becoming “alpha widows” WILL put you on the hook for her previous bad decisions.

        Yes, women choose the scum. BUT they can only do so when they have a legion of men paying for their sorry asses. STOP doing that.

        Also don’t forget the runaways.

      One good quote (paraphrased) is this:
      I married a woman who was not very smart and completely dependent on me. You must marry the correct woman – FOR YOU.

      Yes indeed. That is the one. And I didn’t like it because I’m “into computers”, I liked it for the broad based way in which you examined the modern fetish of the so called intellectual expert elite class and their disgusting hubris to think they can “map” such complex systems as the climate, or the brain, or whatever the flavor of the month with those sickos is this year. I couldn’t give a fuck about computers. I think you are at your best when you lay to waste the “big ideas” that these sickos are channeling billions of stolen taxpayers loot into. Even the human genome project yielded hardly fucking anything. I hate these make-work supercomputer buying assholes. And I sincerely meant it my kind sir, when I asked for a part 2. That’d be great. I’m talking Europe and the US’s “neuronal mapping” project, I’m talking climate “science”, I’m talking the 40 year failed “war on cancer”, I’m talking the nine yards. You know what I’m talking about. I’m talking about TURDS, who you can meet, and they will tell you they work in the “vanguard” of technological discovery, and they haven’t discovered shit.
