Three ways to the future?

"Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it." -George Santayana

The final goal of capitalism is clear: concentration of capital leads to a caste of "chosen by God" loafers, with unlimited possibilities, who use all others only as work horses. But the enormous quantity of "unnecessary" people demands expensive social conditions, creates environmental problems, and even traffic jams. And it is also socially highly explosive. So how do they get rid of wasted humans since machines have totally replaced them? Male sterilization? Step-by-step degeneration through unhealthy genetically modified food sold to the people via powerful advertising? Entrapment in local wars? Or Hitler-style death camps?

"We must aggravate the inequality between people by putting impenetrable barriers. There will be the class of masters and " below them there will be anonymous mob, the lowest ones forever. Still further down, there will be the defeated foreigner modern slaves. And above all these will rise a new aristocratic class of which I can say nothing yet." - Adolf Hitler

But can it make sense for mankind to reject capitalism and money as a source of fraud, false superiority and oppression of one biological individual by another after the example of "communist' Pol Pot in Cambodia? Six-times criminal Joseph Dzhugashvili (Stalin) had right away understood what possibilities the MONOPOLY of a "sheep's religion" called "communism' opens for the Power maniacs: "The Great Helmsman" Mao, "Master of House" Stalin; enthusiasm through eternal poverty, and millions of victims deemed "enemies of the People" through "Communist tin gods" - emperors who were the guardian angels of people's expectations? Or illusions?

"When war is declared in palaces, it will come up in huts a bit later."
- E. Sevrus

Whose egoism is humane?

The common man will remain an abandoned and defenseless orphan under the uncontrollable domination of ANY caste of "god-like" rulers: whether they call themselves capitalists or communists. As long as the interests of the voter, namely pursuit of his or her voice in politics, are not secured with the strongest motivation in the competition for survival through several independent parties, "neutered" parties will instead "contest for their sympathies' within the limits of the monopolistic government and the voters will continue to be ignored.

However, independent parties in any coalition government can gain the sympathy of voters through honest work done on their behalf without deceptive promises and false pre-election advertising.

That is why in the political coup of 1991 the deceived and pauperized Russian people turned away from the communist "Fathers of the Nation", who had torn away the "umbilical cord" of voter feedback. The dinner party called 'The Victory of Communism' had turned out inevitably to be only for the elite of "unselfish fighters".

"The only thing we learn from history is that we never learn from history." -Hegel

Lenin's errors (and not only his):

1. Monopoly of one political idea leads to inevitable formation of a caste which serves it, to the cult of "The Supreme priest' and to alienation from the rest of the society. The caste pursues the interests of the caste exclusively.

2. The monopoly idea creates an imbalance in that society and retention of its domination demands regular disinformation (the lie) and physical violence in Soviet Russia, such as Kronstadt, GULAG, Novocherkassk-62, Prague-68, the Iron Curtain.

3. Self-preservation of a monopoly and social privileges of "priests" require the suppression of new ideas; The lack of renewal and of healthy rivalry leads to degeneration.

4. The unipolarity of control in autocracies leaves the possibility for shadow protectionism; the corruption destroys the state from within.
