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

This year we commemorate the 150th anniversary of the passage of the 13th Amendment to the Constitution — abolishing slavery.

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.

Early American slavery abolition

Few are aware of early American Abolition’s strong opposition to slavery. I like to give a few short examples that you can research fully yourselves just to show there was always opposition to the enslavement of human capital and that this opposition took on many forms.

Benjamin Lay the “Quaker Comet” Was the Greatest Abolitionist You’ve Never heard of.

Overlooked by historians, Benjamin Lay was one of the nation’s first radicals to argue for an end to slavery
Abolition Benjamin lay-wr

Benjamin Lay said he was “illiterate,” but his antislavery arguments were erudite. This portrait, commissioned by Lay’s friend Benjamin Franklin, shows him with a book. (Benjamin Lay by William Williams, Sr. (1750-1758) / National Portrait Gallery, Si; Binoculars: Michele Marconi)

Smithsonian Magazine | Subscribe

On September 19, 1738, a man named Benjamin Lay strode into a Quaker meetinghouse in Burlington, New Jersey, for the biggest event of the Philadelphia Yearly Meeting. He wore a great coat, which hid a military uniform and a sword. Beneath his coat Lay carried a hollowed-out book with a secret compartment, into which he had tucked a tied-off animal bladder filled with bright red pokeberry juice. Because Quakers had no formal minister or church ceremony, people spoke as the spirit moved them. Lay, a Quaker himself, waited his turn.

He finally rose to address this gathering of “weighty Quakers.” Many Friends in Pennsylvania and New Jersey had grown rich on Atlantic commerce, and many bought human property. To them Lay announced in a booming voice that God Almighty respects all peoples equally, rich and poor, men and women, white and black alike. He said that slave keeping was the greatest sin in the world and asked, How can a people who profess the golden rule keep slaves? He then threw off his great coat, revealing the military garb, the book and the blade.

A murmur filled the hall as the prophet thundered his judgment: “Thus shall God shed the blood of those persons who enslave their fellow creatures.” He pulled out the sword, raised the book above his head, and plunged the sword through it. People gasped as the red liquid gushed down his arm; women swooned. To the shock of all, he spattered “blood” on the slave keepers. He prophesied a dark, violent future: Quakers who failed to heed the prophet’s call must expect physical, moral and spiritual death.

The room exploded into chaos, but Lay stood quiet and still, “like a statue,” a witness remarked. Several Quakers quickly surrounded the armed soldier of God and carried him from the building. He did not resist. He had made his point.

“What to the Slave is 4th of July” Frederick Douglass Speech

Excerpts from: Frederick Douglass and the abolitionist movement

Frederick Douglass and the anti slavery movement

Frederick-Douglass-300x226

Douglass joined the American Anti Slavery Society in 1841 as an agent. His role was to travel and deliver speeches, distribute pamphlets and get subscribers to the Liberator. He traveled the country for four years until 1845 when he found himself in a dangerous situation as a fugitive slave.

During the years Douglass toured the country many had started to doubt if he was truly who he said he was, a fugitive slave. Because he was so eloquent and knew to how to read and write many doubted his story was true. With the support of friends he was motivated to write his autobiography “Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass” which was published in 1845.

Afraid for his safety he had to flee to the United Kingdom. He toured England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales giving speeches and networking. Here he met many supporters. Ellen Richardson and Henry Richardson raised funds to buy Douglass’ freedom which protected him from the fugitive slave laws of 1793 and 1850. He was a free man.

He was one of many supporters of the Underground Railroad, harboring fugitive slaves many times in his own house. At one time he had 10 runaways hiding in his home.

The Quakers

Quakers-and-abolitionThe first call for the abolition of slavery in America came in 1688 from the Quakers in Pennsylvania. The Quakers formed the first American Abolition Society in 1775. In 1787 Benjamin Franklin became president of the Society. In 1790, two months before his death, Franklin petitioned Congress, for the first time, to eliminate slavery in his famous “Petition from the Pennsylvania Society for the Abolition of Slavery”. The petition was immediately rejected by pro-slavery congressmen, mostly from the south. A committee assigned to its study claimed that the 1787 Constitution refrained Congress from abolishing slavery or its trade.

In 1807 President Jefferson prohibited the international trade of slaves, however internal trade was allowed. The abolitionist movement was largely unorganized and scattered achieving some success.

During the 1820s and 1830s the American Colonization Society established the colony of Liberia in Africa and by 1865 over 10,000 African American slaves had migrated to Liberia. Supporters included Henry Clay, James Monroe and Abraham Lincoln.

Second Great Awakening and the Church

In the 1830s a drastic change took place in the abolitionist movement. The Second Great Awakening, a religious revival, stressed the morals of upholding God’s will in society. Slavery was considered a sin. Churches, specially the Evangelical Protestant church, were the starting point to the emergence and spread of abolitionist ideas in northern society. Nathaniel Taylor, Charles Finney and Lyman Beecher were some of the leaders of the Second Great Awakening.

Slavery and the Abolition Society

Abolition-of-slavery

Early view on slavery

Like most citizens of his time Benjamin Franklin owned slaves and viewed them as inferior to white Europeans, as it was believed they could not be educated. His newspaper the Pennsylvania Gazette advertised the sale of slaves and frequently published notices of runaways. However, he also published antislavery ads from Quakers.

Franklin owned slaves from as early as 1735 until 1781. The Franklin household had six slaves; Peter, his wife Jemima and their son Othello, George, John and King.

After 1758 Franklin gradually changed his mind when his friend Samuel Johnson brought him to one of Dr. Bray’s schools for black children. Dr. Bray Associates was a philanthropic association affiliated to the Church of England. In 1759 he joined the association by donating money.

School apologizes over students with blackface in 2nd grade play

By: Lauren Pozen

Updated:

Blackface 2nd grade

ATLANTA – Parents of some second graders are furious after their children performed a play with blackface masks at school.

The school has apologized and is now trying to right their wrong.

Some parents told Channel 2’s Lauren Pozen they were so upset, they went straight to social media to express their frustration.

Out of that came a meeting on Friday afternoon with parents and staff.

One mother told Pozen that the incident was wrong and hurtful.

“We immediately recognized the masks as blackface,” mother Ari Lima said.

Second graders at the Kindezi School at Old Fourth Ward wore paper masks over their faces during a black history performance of Paul Laurence Dunbar’s poem “We Wear the Mask.”

Video of the performance was posted on Facebook by a mother and it sparked outrage.

A fourth grader said the performance upset her.

“I saw some people laughing at it and they thought it was like a comedy,” fourth grader Knasaiah Perry said.

A parent told Pozen that she and others take issue with the appropriateness of the mask and its historical context of the poem.

“It had nothing to do with blackface; Laurence Dunbar is probably rolling over somewhere because it is not contextually accurate,” Lima said.

In response to the backlash, the school apologized and held a meeting Friday evening to talk about how to move forward.

Lima said it’s a start, but it still needs work.

“There is this narrative of reshaping black face and amalgamating it so that it’s not an ugly part of our history and there’s really no ownership that the poem didn’t correlate with what we were seeing,” Lima said.  Continue Reading: >>@ wbstvAtlanta

Fighting Racial Bias in an Age of Mass Murder: Prejudice from the Coffee Shop to Charlottesville

As avowed neo-Nazi James Alex Fields pleaded guilty Wednesday to 29 counts of hate crimes in a federal court for plowing his car into a crowd of anti-racist protesters in Charlottesville in August of 2017, we look at a new book that addresses the tragic event, as well as the rising number of race-based mass shootings, hate crimes and police shootings of unarmed men in the past several years. It also examines cases of discrimination against African Americans for simply sitting in coffee shops or trying to vacation in Airbnb-hosted homes.

Professor Jennifer Eberhardt is the author of “Biased: Uncovering the Hidden Prejudice That Shapes What We See, Think, and Do,” about how implicit bias impacts everything from hate crimes to microaggressions in the workplace, school and community, and what we can do about it. Eberhardt is a professor of psychology at Stanford and a recipient of a 2014 MacArthur “genius” grant.

My Take,

a bit more subjective opposed to objective perhaps, as this one incident speaks toward a much greater problem and may amount to the moral imperative beckoning out for a greater moral community and it’s own reckoning.
The systemic and Institutionalized racism and racial degradation in the US is often pawned off on the individuals degradated themselves enough to perform these small and not so small arbitrary acts of hatred and bigotry, while the policies and procedures that actually support and encourage this life-negating belligerence are largely ignored in any problem solving capacity by the mainstream media and thus the greater population regardless of class or color. So implicit and explicit bias runs ramped and even captures the minds of Americans of color.
 
This behavior is taught at home, codified and encouraged by affluent private interest, government institutions, corporate America and the mainstream legacy media trough the demonetization of people of color and small racial deference’s, opposed to more distinct differences in class or a celebration of our over whelming similarities compared and serves to foster the criminalization and a subsequent over all otherization of much of the US population of color and stinks to high heaven.

Human Capital or Pseudo-Capitalist Wage Slaves

It’s dawns on me that I am not sure if, it is well known to pseudo-capitalist today that slaves were the human capital that made capitalism. Although with surety I’m certain that it’s not so well known or readily recognized by pseudo-capitalist today, probably due to cognitive dissonance, that human capital continues to sustain capitalism today but under what name?

Wage Slaves

We know the conditions of coercion we serve under well enough, but not that it’s a thing, not that it’s always been a thing and surely not that it’s not normal. Similar to serfs suffering brutal feudalism, accepting their station of serfdom, while bowing in acquiescence to their lords and kings, we can’t see the forest for the trees, labels and terms like, Pseudo-capitalist wage slave, cognizent wage slave, debt slave or prison chattel slave don’t stick to us, as we are capitalist.

The politics of divide and conquer, has spun much of the US population into actually believing they are capitalist, capitalizing off a non-existent free-market. They are not capitalist, they are what I like to call, pseudo-capitalist wage slaves, as  they believe with all their heart that they are capitalist, when they are actually wage slaves being very much exploited by not only ruthless capitalist but more so a  system of capitalism termed ‘Savage’.

Quite a few years back now, in reply to me mentioning or proclaiming that “I’m not a capitalist,” a young friend quickly admonished back that “if your not a capitalist, your being exploited by capitalism.” I very much agreed and very much agree we are all, mid 90% of us, only human capital being coerced and exploited from cradle to grave without a high fraudulent clue of how the contract driven, representative democracy instituted and run capitalist system, we adore so and fully align with is enslaving us.

Capitalism reformed from whips and chains, to participate or starve coercion of human capital, is supposed to be a kinder gentler slavery but turns out to be an exponentially more brutal fascism inside the cup and anything from delusional free market capitalism, to a disorientating, holographic corporatism on the outside of said tea cup full of muck.

Bruce lee Absorb

As toward solution,

Andrew Yang a 2020 Presidential hopeful is offering a $1000.00 a month to every citizen, no questions asked, or so no questions are asked, to mitigate the coercion of human capital and exploitative nature of this fascist Corporatocracy, run on quantitative easing endowments to a small select few, self-proclaimed chosen tribe perhaps but the wrong end of the goat for sure, so we can call it fascism or we can continue to refer to it as something it’s not and pretend that it’s doing what free market capitalism does and is not openly fascist.

Either way, I’m thinking Yang is right to feed the right end of the goat. A $1000 a month would insure that folks don’t have to make the choice between eating or sell themselves for a buck in duress. With that said, and the successful mitigation of human capital coercion, what will we call it? Surely not capitalism as we hope hazardously call corporatism capitalism today. Maybe we call it commonsense, while channeling Bruce Lee who has been quoted stating “absorb what is useful, discard what is useless, add what is uniquely  your own,” but that would require coupling with worker ownership, economic democracy, and cooperation opposed to incorporation in a big way.

Capitalism, Coercion and Modern-Day Abolition

Capitalism and Coercion

There are two core dualism’s at the heart of capitalist mythology, between consent and coercion, and freedom and force. Each derives from capitalism’s foundational principle — private property.

For capitalist theory, property is a sacrosanct extension of the self, to be disposed of only according to personal preference. In Locke’s famous phrase, it is ‘natural law’ that man be entitled to ‘life, liberty and estate’. On his understanding, no one can take another’s life, freedom or property, and that property can only be legitimately exchanged if bought or sold consensually.

This notion extends also to labour-power, which is viewed under capitalism as a property-like commodity akin to any other. Provided a worker can consent to the sale of his labour, a legitimate labour-capital exchange can be formalized in contract — just as one does with the sale of a house.

Those practices not conforming to this model of consensual, contractual exchange are seen to lie outside of capitalism. With goods, this includes theft or forceful appropriation, while with labour, it includes ‘trafficking’, ‘slavery’ or ‘forced labour’, since each boils definitionally down to the presence or absence of consent or coercion in the exchange.

AI Systems Reverse Engineered Using Adversarial Machine Learning

AI security expert Dawn Song warns that “adversarial machine learning” could be used to reverse-engineer systems—including those used in defense.

Song said adversarial machine learning could be used to attack just about any system built on the technology. “It’s a big problem,” she told the audience. “We need to come together to fix it.”

Adversarial machine learning involves experimentally feeding input into an algorithm to reveal the information it has been trained on, or distorting input in a way that causes the system to misbehave.

By inputting lots of images into a computer vision algorithm, for example, it is possible to reverse-engineer its functioning and ensure certain kinds of outputs, including incorrect ones. Song presented several examples of adversarial-learning trickery that her research group has explored.

Our widely believed and beloved white European, blond haired, blue eyed, out of Africa Tarzan type Jesus, is pretend. The Christ wasn’t European or white and nor was our Turkish Santa Claus. This oligarchy is Not a Democracy, nor do we have free market Capitalism and Columbus discovered nothing, except that the Africans were telling the truth of how to navigate to the new world. What we don’t know is hurting us and everyone else on the planet. The hand we refuse to bite is feeding us for the slaughter, while we marinate our own offspring in the corporate government provided bliss that is surely ignorance.

Humans can no longer be defined as monsters, beast, just the vessel, just the vehicle chaperoning the expression. The Open Minded are being reminded of the need to strengthen the expression, regardless of the physical binds and restraints of our own so called systems of governance, which war not really with us, but with nature, with love itself. We are being reminded that we are that nature that our systems war against, we are love.

All of which serves to remind, regardless of the journey, spirit, mind to body or body, mind to spirit, the object is the Expression, to Care and to Love More !

Plugging around for like 50 years now and it’s still All GOD the CREATOR is still creating, peace !

Invaders (Meech Da Shredda) https://youtu.be/euv8rXjbeoI Dum Diversas. The reason why your parents were enslaved. This video breifly outlines the papal bull (decree) Dum Diversas issued by the Pope in 1454, this authorized your parents to be held in ‘perpetual slavery’ using Christianity, it highlights how the Spanish came unto the Americas acting as the son of god and immortals with their religious falsehood in order to enslave you. It highlights how people were captured from various places like Florida etc..and sent into slavery to the Spanish mines in South America. It highlights the inhabitants from the 1500’s with the first foray into Florida, they knew ‘black men’ to be there who they labelled the seed of Africans, they don’t know where they came from. The video shows of the negro Moor guide Estevanico who came with the Spaniads to seek out people in new territories. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dum_Div…http://unamsanctamcatholicam.blogspot… Cosmography In Four Books, Containing The Chorography and History Of The World: https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=L… A Geographical Dictionary, Representing the Present and Ancient Names of All the Countries, Provinces, Remarkable Cities …, And Rivers of the Whole World: Their Distances, Longitudes and Latitudes – Edmund Bohun (page 223) https://books.google.co.uk/books/abou… The Discovery and conquest of Terra Florida by Don Ferdinando de Soto and six hundred Spaniards, his Followers written by a gentleman of Elvas employed in all the action and translated out of the Portuguese https://archive.org/details/discovery… Ferdinando De Soto https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hernand… Lucas Vázquez de Ayllón https://www.britannica.com/biography/… Negro-peon Moor who was the guide for the Marcos de Niza https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Estevanicohttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marcos_…
