China’s State Capitalism Stronger than our Private Capitalism

Or:  China’s “State Socialism” Stronger than our “Corporate Socialism”

After his good explanation (shared here two weekends ago) of how a socialism-inspired economy – best described as state capitalism – boosted the Soviet Union so incredibly well prior to its political collapse (yes: political, not economical!), Richard Wolff moved on to describe China’s route in another video. Unfortunately, this report is below his usually very high standard of deep insight and good explanation, which is why I share this episode reluctantly and only with a longish commentary.  Continue reading “China’s State Capitalism Stronger than our Private Capitalism”

Note: I grew up during the tail end of the ‘golden age’ expecting a just and fair life. All I have had is a shitty life. Similarly to this man, I have wished all the time I had never been born.

The Camouflage of Authoritarianism

In the interview clip shared below, a caller makes an important point about authoritarian regimes, namely that authoritarianism can camouflage in any present economic or political system. Therefore socialism gets easily smeared by pointing at the Soviet Union where an authoritarian undemocratic regime hid behind the facade of socialism (or communism, depending on which representative or critic was speaking). It’s almost funny considering that the Soviet Union’s economic system wasn’t really socialist or communist but a form of state capitalism where the ruling capitalists aren’t private owners of everything but bureaucratic members of a regime controlling everything, making workers as ruled from above, voiceless, and possibly exploited at their places of work as in any private ownership style capitalist system. If you research the history of the term socialism you will find that it was created around the idea of democracy in our economy, the workers owning the means of production, not an authoritarian regime acting out as the workers’ alleged representative and thus painting itself as socialist. But I digress…
