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 what the rich, the people who run the mill, see as "unnecessary" people demands expensive social conditions, creates environmental problems, and even traffic jams.

But it is also socially highly explosive. So how do they get rid of humans whom they see as a waste, 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 increase the inequality between people by putting up impenetrable barriers. There will be the class of masters and below them there will be an anonymous mob, always the lowest ones.. Still further down, there will be the defeated modern slaves, the foreigners . 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, to claim that it is only a case of false superiority and oppression of one biological individual by another after the example of "communist' Pol Pot in Cambodia? A six-time convicted criminal , Joseph Dzhugashvili (Stalin) had right away understood what possibilities the MONOPOLY of a " religion for the sheep" called "communism' opens for the Power maniacs: "The Great Helmsman" Mao, "The Master of the House" Stalin; enthusiasm in spite of eternal poverty and millions of victims deemed "enemies of the People" by "Communist tin gods" - emperors who were presumed to be the guardian angels of people's needs and desires? Or was it illusions?

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 some effect resulting from his or her political vote, are not secured through the strongest motivation in the competition for survival, through a political system with several independent parties, indifferent and self-serving parties will instead compete for the sympathies of the voters 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. Only under this condition, can political parties not rule, but actually work for the people.

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 severed the "umbilical cord" of voter feedback. The dinner party called 'The Victory of Communism' had turned out inevitably to be only for the elite, the ones who called themselves the "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 the inevitable formation of a caste which serves it, to the cult of "The Supreme priest' and to the alienation from the rest of society. The caste pursues the interests of the caste exclusively.

2. The monopoly idea creates an imbalance in the society, and retention of its domination demands regular disinformation (the lie) and physical violence in Soviet Russia, such as the Kronstadt rebellion [1] , the Gulags, Novocherkassk - June 1962' [2] , Prague-68, the Iron Curtain, among other flagrant examples of rebellions dealt with in a horrendously repressive way.
