Why are capitalist societies compelled to grow? What are the socio-ecological consequences of this relentless growth? Why should a #postcapitalist society be a #degrowth society?

Thread based on great chapter of Eric Pineault in our book 1/12 ImageImage
Everyone interested in these questions should read Erics chapter, entitled "The growth imperative in capitalist society." It lays the foundations for a theory of #accumulation that includes monetary flows, ideology, and ecology. 2/
Its core claims are:
If a capitalist economy can be defined by the drive towards accumulation, then growth is the materialization of this process & capitalism appears as growth. This appearance, capital’s materialization, is biophysical and ecological as much as it is social. 3/

Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar (1938):

"There are in my view two enemies which the workers of this country have to deal with. The two enemies are #Brahmanism and #Capitalism. 1/n
By Brahmanism I do not mean the power, privileges and interests of Brahmins as a community...By Brahmanism I mean the negation of the spirit of Liberty, Equality and Fraternity. 2/n
In that sense it is rampant in classes and is not confined to the Brahmins alone, though they have been the originators of it. This Brahmanism which pervades everywhere and which regulates the thought and deeds of all classes is an incontrovertible fact. 3/n

WHAT IS #GASLIGHTING?

The term originates in the systematic psychological manipulation of a victim by her husband in Patrick Hamilton’s 1938 stage play Gas Light, and the film adaptations released in 1940 and 1944
In the story, the husband attempts to convince his wife & others that she is insane by manipulating small elements of their environment & insisting that she is mistaken, remembering things incorrectly, or delusional when she points out these changes.
The play's title alludes to how the abusive husband slowly dims the gas lights in their home, while pretending nothing has changed, in an effort to make his wife doubt her own perceptions.

The main strength of the doctrine of Individualism is “Locality of failure”. Under a system of "responsibility for self", failure is local to the individual. The individual is connected probably with 5 or 6 other people who can provide some assistance, i.e. bail them out. 1/4
However, when a collectivised system fails i.e. a system where everyone is relying on everyone else, then everyone is in the same boat and there is no one capable of bailing anyone else out, let alone the whole system. 2/4
This is why all forms of coerced collectivism throughout history have killed 100’s of millions of people. Whereas individualistic capitalism has created the greatest levels of wealth, 3/4

3/ Part of the reason was the war, but really the criminal privatization and the lack of strategic investment into PUBLIC infrastructure. Many of the buildings date back to Austria-Hungary. What little is new ironically attests not to investment, but to neglect. In the second...

1. World Economic Forum - the capitalists who run the #Davos meeting every January

Here is their meeting July 2020

Critical here is minute 33-36

GOVERNMENTS will need to come together and take control

#NewWorldOrder

2. What makes those minutes above significant is that the World Economic Forum has always downplayed the conspiracy theory of #Globalism (a world government controlling #capitalism - #NewWorldOrder)

And now they finally admit it and openly push for it

project-syndicate.org/commentary/dav…
3. The World Economic Forum has always made a distinction between GLOBALIZATION (multinational corporations working together for not only Shareholders but Stakeholders)

Vs

#Globalism (a top-Down conspiracy theory according to them)

I agree with wearing a mask in public.
I think the majority of the #turn you away. Just I agree with wearing a #mask in public.
I think the majority of the #resistance comes from the #Government mandating it. The
government shouldn’t require it. #Capitalism is giving people the #freedom to make a choice. I agree with businesses that require masks and if you choose not to they have the right to turn you away. Just like the patron has a #choice to abide by the request or not enter...
...the business. #freedomofchoice
Also, I think it would help if people knew the threshold that needs to be reached for the mask recommendations be lifted...

With #Covid19 as the ultimate catalyst, the push is on to implement the financialization of nature.

The Natural Capital Coalition is made up of approx. 300 orgs/corps while working w/ thousands. Partners include #CocaCola, #Shell, #Walmart.

Those with money will own #nature.
Those w/ $ will own #nature.

The very corporations that have brought us to the precipice of #ecological #collapse - will now be appointed as the new stewards of nature. This has been dubbed (#XR Business - Elkington/Volans) as the new biosphere economy.

#NewDealForNature
Let's take a look at how #Covid19 has been successfully leveraged (both fear & distraction) in order to aid the largest transformation of the global economic system in modern history. Assigning monetary value to nature ("natural capital") will replace #GDP.

The pernicious facet of this is that a small coterie of CEOs are not punishing the Tech oligolpoly (which many cheer, if only from Schadenfreude) for being too #Left-biased but for not being censorious enough.
Did the C-Suite Sanhedrin ever consult shareholders or ask customers?
This is is the curse of virtue-signalling ‘on office time’, using Other People’s Money (property) & generally acting ultra vires to gain plaudits from the narrow circle of one’s peers by pandering to extremists & activists.

#KlausSchwab’s 4th International may be telling you we have ‘moved beyond #capitalism’, but until you put it to a vote of your ultimate owners, it is not something to which you have ANY business paying attention. It is not YOUR company, nor the role for which you were hired.
