Words Set the Tone
Our current version of capitalism holds the intrinsic belief that individuals must determine themselves under the banner of laissez-faire, wherein any form of political economy that could in fact instigate a revision of our current disparity and financial polarization is relegated to an oppression to the self-imposed laws and policies that back up an ‘open rink’ such as what self determinism ‘should be,’ which is then externalized as a Free Market basis and call this political freedom, when it is in fact only a legal means to keep inequality in place and justify it with the belief of economic growth and progress.
What is the key to the success of Capitalist competition?
The key to the success of capitalist competition is that it limits competition to the economic sphere of production, and removes it completely from the political arena of compulsion. Where capitalist competition leads to a free market; political competition leads to a mixed economy of warring pressure groups and if continued for long — a dictatorship.

Who benefits? If everyone was equally supported and the system was showing real results of people being considered to live in dignity and be in absolute well being, I would not be here writing these words. The problem is far more simple than any belief we’ve collectively accepted and allowed in relation to economics, which is simply a rigged worded system – as our own self-creation – that supports rules that are determined to support those that are willing to play according to the rules of the game that benefits them– anyone that dares to consider another as an equal participant and requiring equal opportunity is seen as a threat and real evil to this personal drive and self interest that, apparently,constitutes ‘real freedom’ in our society.
“Rational self interest is the profit motive that is the basis of competition.”
The key problem is in the words: Rational Self Interest is not the realization of who we are as one single organism consisting of multiple parts that are required to be made functional upon the very basic physical laws of nature that our own physical bodies exist as. It is fascinating how just as any religion, philosophy or knowledge for that matter, words within Economy embody the forked tongue that is willing to abuse another for the sake of praising self’s own interest and call that ‘economic efficiency and a freedom and right.’ Of course, we hear ‘efficiency’ and link it to people knowing what they do and doing it the best way they can in the benefit of most, yet we don’t realize such words are being spoken from a definitive platform that was deliberately created to sustain a fictional system of made up ‘powers’ to enslave the majority, which means self interest is vehemently guarded, it is pondered as the best way to follow through and it’s the best self-destructive weapon to ever exist in our human civilization.
Read about the ‘Profit Motive’ for further understanding.
Here’s a point to begin with:
Are not competition and cooperation opposites?
Contrary to those who prattle about “competition versus cooperation”, capitalism is the only system where voluntary cooperation can actually exist, as it banishes force from all relationships, making all exchanges voluntary. Contrast this with the “cooperation” of collectivist societies, where one man must “cooperate” with another, lest he desires to be fined, thrown in prison, or have a lead bullet pumped into his skull.
Capitalist competition is the one of the most economically practical forms of social cooperation, where every producer competes to see who can best cooperate with each other, and with the consumer. Such is the nature of capitalist competition.

This is a usual point of criticism we encounter, wherein men are apparently Forced to cooperate to work and be supported through earning money. Cooperation is then warped into a self-improvement incentive however there is no clarification as to How such cooperation will be rewarded.
Capitalism: Would you agree that capitalism despite its problems ‘”Is the best way forward” ?
Capitalism founded upon common well being can function to the best interest of all. It is the individual conception of benefit that must be redefined within a collective understanding of life as a social organism. Capitalism at the moment is not an ideal capitalism where the well being of all individuals is taken care of, we got stuck in the middle when greed and corruption became an easier way to manifest the individual desires at the expense of the majority.
Collectivism must stop being treated as a disease to capitalism since real wealth can only exist if there’s a group force working to create it, this must be equally distributed through equal-profit share, capping the creation of unnecessary goods, re-educating ourselves to value life and not material possessions as a symbol of one’s wealth. Stopping the capitalization upon private property and instead use capital to sponsor organizations that support cleaning up, reforesting, caring for all the living species as we have to get back to basis to recognize the real value that life is as this Earth and physical resources, and without our Ecosystem being in a sound manner, any bright proposal for a change will be futile.
So, we can redefine capitalism of course, we got the system, we keep that which functions and adjust/re-align that which only serves a few people’s interests. This is the way forward: Equal Money Capitalism Equal Money System
“What’s Good/Right and Bad/Wrong, for many in their Lives becomes irrelevant when it comes to Money and Survival, and so Morals won’t Stand – Money/Survival will Stand. In this, Life Regulation will be thus a Process of Internal and External Life/Living Regulation, in as one prepare the Internal World of a Child, to Prepare the External World for Children of the Future as also Proposed by/through the Equal Money System.” – Sunette Spies*
