2 Questions Every Capitalist Must Ask Themselves

∴ (Q1) Do you live to work?

Living to work slaveryLiving to work is slavery. Humans have always been slaves to Nature, a beautiful, symbiotic  and light burden in most cases but no doubt a burden just the same. Humans have also always been forced, coerced and exploited into the abomination of working for another as slaves.  Voluntary or involuntary, if a slave does not work, the slaves does not get the necessities to live, all the way up and trough no real choice, shelter, clean water, or health care, to unholy starvation.
This is only possible through the theft that is private property and with that human capital slavery and taxes. It’s all about theft but of what really?
One can chop up individual stations of slavery or servitude into different degrees of brutality but the slave whatever labelled or called, from chattel slave or serf, to wage slave, a slave is bound to work for another to eat.
Renting human capital for an hourly wage is slavery. Usurping the value of human capital labor outside of the market, through fiat private currency debasement, is more theft and still slavery.

Standing Up To Slavery and Human Trafficking So Others Can Live A Life of Abundance – John Rafferty

From abundance to slavery and back again to abundance looks like ending the age old failed concepts and misconceptions at the root levels of theft and subsequently all forms of theft. Private property is theft as well as slavery and taxes.

I’ll briefly offer some concepts and understandings that I’ve gained and quantifying links as resources.

Capitalism’s requirement of economic exploitation and coercion of human capital amounts to slavery.

To quantify my above repeated assertion that capitalism is slavery.
I’ll start with some relevant quotes from a book refuting the relativist, “postmodern” notion that historical reality is not objective fact, but a “social construct.”

Telling the Truth about History, by Joyce Appleby, Lynn Hunt, and Margaret Jacob, all history teachers at UCLA.

“One of the distinguishing features of a free-enterprise economy is that its coercion is veiled. . . . The fact that people must earn before they can eat is a commonly recognized connection between need and work, but it presents itself as a natural link embedded in the necessity of eating rather than as arising from a particular arrangement for distributing food through market exchanges. . . . Presented as natural and personal in the stories people tell about themselves, the social and compulsory aspects of capitalism slip out of sight and out of mind. . . . Far from being natural, the cues for market participation are given through complicated social codes. Indeed, the illusion that compliance in the dominant economic system is voluntary is itself an amazing cultural artifact.” – Telling the Truth about History, by Joyce Appleby, Lynn Hunt, and Margaret Jacob, all history teachers at UCLA.
Statute of Liberty chains

Statute of Liberty, ankles remain chained through today.

In a previous post, I pointed out that the Ontario Coalition Against Poverty (OCAP) explicitly indicated that economic coercion or force is a basic condition for capitalism to continue to exist (Basic Income: A Critique of the Ontario Coalition Against Poverty’s Stance ).  The following quote agrees with OCAP in so far as economic coercion or economic blackmail characterizes modern capitalist society, but Kay implies that, as a consequence, it is necessary to redefine the nature of poverty. Many social-reformist organizations define poverty exclusively in terms of the level of income, with the poverty line (defined according to a certain level of income) separating those who are defined as poor by the social-reformist left and the rest, who are supposedly the middle class. Such a definition, according to OCAP’s own recognition of the economic coercion required in the job market, is inadequate.
Consequently, OCAP should, in accordance with its own recognition of the economic blackmail characteristic of capitalism, start to organize for the purpose of eliminating poverty conditions that require such economic blackmail. It should, in other words, start to engage in the formation of a movement for the abolition of the power of employers as a class and the corresponding economic, social and political structures.
The social-reformist left, however, will probably not acknowledge the need for a redefinition of poverty that includes the economic coercion of the vast majority of workers. They prefer to deal in platitudes, such as calling the work characteristic of economic coercion “decent work,” or reforms in employment standards and increases in the minimum wages (all necessary, of course) “fair,” or claiming that they are fighting for “economic justice” (while not engaging in any activity that moves towards abolishing the economic coercion characteristic of the capitalist job market dominated by a class of employers).

The TRUTH About W-4 WITHHOLDING

When you contract to be a U.S. citizen, you agree to become a voluntary slave to help collect revenue. Similarly, when you agree to work for the government, a privilege, you also agree to be a voluntary slave/employee. After all, for this privilege, you also get to pay a Public Salary Tax and get to have that tax withheld from your wages in advance. The government can dispose of a part of your labor, the tax withheld, and you cannot do anything about it, because you voluntarily chose to work for the government.

The TRUTH About W-4 WITHHOLDING

Slave. A person who is wholly subject to the will of another; one who has no freedom of action, but whose person and services are wholly under the control of another. One who is under the power of a master, and who belongs to him; so that the master may sell and dispose of his person, of his industry, and of his labor, without his being able to do anything, have anything, or acquire anything, but what must belong to his master. (Black’s Law Dictionary – 6th Edition)
Person. In general usage, a human being (i.e. natural person), though by statute term may include labor organizations, partnerships, associations, corporations, legal representatives, trustees, trustees in bankruptcy, or receivers.
Scope and delineation of term is necessary for determining to whom Fourteenth Amendment of Constitution affords protection since this Amendment expressly applies to “person”.
Aliens. Aliens are “persons” within meaning of Fourteenth Amendment . . .
Corporation. A corporation is a “person” within meaning of Fourteenth Amendment . . .”
(Black’s Law Dictionary 6th Edition)
According to these definitions, a slave is a ‘person’, and a person can be an alien or a corporation. The 13th Amendment abolishes ‘involuntary’ slavery, but not ‘voluntary’ slavery. A U.S. citizen is a voluntary slave, with no rights to acquire property or income and must “return” a portion of his ‘wages’ every April 15.

14th Amendment. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States, and of the State wherein they reside.

Since slaves are persons, could this be read all ‘slaves’ born or naturalized . . .? A U.S. citizen’s name is spelled in all caps. A name spelled in all caps indicates a corporation or a corporate citizen (property).

Remember, if you don’t owe any tax, or did not receive ‘wages’, or are not a foreign person, then you are not subject to withholding of tax! But you can volunteer!Continue reading @ resource: The TRUTH About W-4 WITHHOLDING

How Black Abolitionists Changed A Nation

Abolitionist Harriet Tubman, circa 1860-1875

H.B. Lindsley/Library of Congress

This year we commemorate the 150th anniversary of the passage of the 13th Amendment to the Constitution — abolishing slavery. So it’s worth pointing out that the emancipation movement in 19th century America was pushed forward by many different forces: enlightened lawmakers, determined liberators of captive slaves and outspoken abolitionists — including an influential number who were black.
With the national debate over slavery escalating toward civil war, explains history professor Roy E Finkenbine at the University of Detroit, Mercy, the militant abolitionist movement, which was largely championed by Northerners, battled an aggressive defense of slavery that was based mostly in the South.
In the midst of this societal schism, “black abolitionists were the one set of voices that could bring credibility to the debate. This was especially true of those who had experienced slavery — ‘felt the lash’ and ‘worn the shoe,’ as it were,” Finkenbine says.
∴ Bellow is an excerpt from Slavery and the Abolition Society Also referred as the Abolition Society, provided by The Ben Franklin Historical Society documenting Franklin’s changing view of slaves, slavery and his Abolitionist opposition to the peculiar institution in his later days. I would just remind that slaves were forbid education, to be taught or to teach themselves in the early Americas.

Economic Democracy the Next Sytem

gearing_19489_lg

We need a new economic system if we, our children, and our grandchildren are going to live in a just, humane, peaceful, and sustainable world. The transition can be envisaged as a democratic, nonviolent restructuring of basic economic institutions.

Although workplace democracy should be the norm throughout society, it needn’t be the case that all businesses conform to this norm.
