Capitalism and Socialism- A Marriage Made in Hell (For the White Worker)

Capitalism is a powerful economic and social arrangement that produces widepsread prosperity- if labor is not in unlimited supply. A basic concept of price theory, or microeconomics is that the quantity supplied of an item sold in a free market will increase as the supply decreases.

In periods of limited labor supply- the US before the Civil War and from the end of World War II to around 1970- the working man lived well. The lack of an unlimited supply of labor isn’t a problem theoretically for a capitalist or free market. Since things are produced with a combination of labor and capital, capital can be substituted for labor, just as labor can be substituted for capital- not completely, or perfectly, but substantially. If you can hire ten guys at $5 an hour to dig a hole, maybe you don’t need to buy a backhoe and pay one guy $20 an hour. If you can’t hire a bunch of guys for next to nothing, maybe a backhoe is a good investment. Better drive by the Home Depot parking lot first.

As a practical matter- as a empirically observed social phenomena, which libertarians never understand- capitalism insists on having an unlimited supply of labor. Capitalists believe, in a deep, unshakable way that is beyond reason, that they should be able to hire as many workers as they want for any position they want for whatever wages they feel are appropriate to pay.

Libertarians, or libertarian conservatives, again not getting it, point out that the workers obtained under this arrangement will not be friendly to capitalism. In the late 1800’s and early 1900’s it resulted in numerous communists and anarchists entering the US and engaging in domestic terrorism. Currently, they are protesting that the illegal aliens up for amnesty will all vote Democratic.

Capitalism demands cheap labor, but cheap labor demands socialism. Logically this would create a problem, but it doesn’t. Why not?

Because capitalists don’t pay the price- nominally in taxes, or indirectly in the degradation of culture, living conditions and safety- that cheap labor costs. In a modern first world social democracy, higher paid workers, mostly white natives of the nation, pay this cost. If they object they are demonized in the worst possible way.

If there is no expensive labor, no native class capable of demanding its interests, the system will be more crass and directly exploitative. This is what you see in most third world countries, but it’s of no real concern to us. A special situation is South Africa, where white rule was thought to be the problem. In the old days, if black workers got angry and rioted, they would be shot by white (and some black) policemen on the behalf of white capitalists. Of course now, the evil racist regime is gone, and the rioting black workers are shot by black policemen on the behalf of black (and some white) capitalists. Thank God for hope and change!

About thrasymachus33308

I like fast cars, fast women and southern-fried rock. I have an ongoing beef with George Orwell. I take my name from a character in Plato's "Republic" who was exasperated with the kind of turgid BS that passed for deep thought and political discourse in that time and place, just as I am today. The character, whose name means "fierce fighter" was based on a real person but nobody knows for sure what his actual political beliefs were. I take my pseudonym from a character in an Adam Sandler song who was a obnoxious jerk who pissed off everybody.

    Good article! We’re getting there. I’ll bet the US is third world inside 30 years.

      Fascinating idea. What if we redefine First World to mean the utopia of usurers? The ideal society from a nationalist point of view is not one which relegates labor to the white trash heap.

    This is, as usual, brilliant.

    I will note that many socialist countries work better than the USA because they destroy less underlying social capital. Unfortunately China seems to be destroying its social capital much like the USA once did.

    A weak socialist government can preside over a ethnically homogeneous populace with few problems. Ethnic diversity strains socialism.

    • The elites of European countries don’t hate their native people the way the elites of the US and Britain do.

      • Bobbye says:

        I don’t think they hate us. They view us as children who need guidence and they get upset when we dont listen, or when we act like rebelious teenagers. I think it is more likely that we hate them.

  5. PA says:

    What is the root of that hate?

    • Lawful Neutral says:

      This is getting interesting. Do our masters hate us, or do they merely have contempt for us? If they hate us, why do they hate us?

      Now I don’t hobnob with the great and the good, but I have put in my time among the aspiring elite, high IQ, upwardly-mobile, upper-middle-class types, and in my experience, they have more than contempt, they have true hatred for any whites not on board with the program our masters have given them.

      Why should this be? For all they like to pretend they’ve evolved past such primitive, atavistic urges, they’re still naked apes, and like all of us, they still need to hate an outgroup almost as much as they need water and air. All groups except nonprogressive Whites are off limits, so they end up hating us. A healthy polity would channel that outgroup hate toward some foreign nation or another, but the USG likes to think it rules all the earth, so that’s out. Religious or racial others have also been popular targets, but that can’t be tolerated in this day and age.

    Heavy immigration started before the war, I think, and the brave authors of Time on the Cross opined that many a White worker in Yankeeland was about as hard pressed as certain slaves, perhaps slaves on smaller plantings where owners cared about them. My recollection was that Deep South slavery was a little worse, perhaps owing to plantation size, yet some of Thomas Jefferson’s slaves actually wanted to be sold down there when Virginia agri prices and Jefferson’s bank account hit the dirt, because they were pretty hungry.

    Caribbean/tropical slavery I think was much more hellish largely due to disease.

    This is not to detract from your overall point, a fascinating one.

    • RS says:

      ‘Course, you could always farmstead before the war, and sometime after — but how do you like fighting Indians/ potentially exposing your women and children to same. While no doubt an economically equalizing and leveling force in society, it wasn’t a free lunch.

    Is anyone here having difficulty accessing the ‘Paul Kersey’ blog STUFF BLACK PEOPLE DON’T LIKE?

    For 2 days I have been unable to completely open the last 2 posts – the ones on Moore and guns and on the youngster killed at Birmingham airport. A small amount of text or photo will appear, and then the screen freezes, at which point my broswer will fail to open any webpage at all (Safari for IPAD).

    I must then power off completely to restore internet access.

    I have no problem opening older posts from SBPDL archives.

    I have never had any problem with access to Paul’s site before, which surprises me in light of his inendiary content.

    Labor is unlimited – as population’s breed.
    What we see with MASS immigration is, I think, a direct consequence of the total destruction and collapse of the private sector workers political voice.
    There are no private sector unions which have any real political muscle or it wouldn’t happen because its not in the interests of private sector workers. .

    We now have a unholy alliance of public sector unions and big capital who depend on increasing mass immigration to support big government salaries, and need more taxpayers backs, and to offset big government inflation by reducing private sector wages.

    Capital gets big profits with Labor available for next to nothing – not even needing to invest back in the domestic Labor pool (hence high youth unemployment) as they can simply import workers at will.

    Wages are at all time lows as a share of national income, capital and rents and public sector incomes are at all time highs. We need a powerful private sector voice – either from unions or from the right (anti-immigration party) to stop private sector workers having a worse standard of living than their parents.
