Cap It All Ism

Cap It All Ism is a transitional mode of production which caps/taxes excess and promotes a sustainable development model.

Cap It All Ism seeks to explain the inequalities that threaten the collapse of Western society by providing an evolutionary response for regional communities to gather strength – supporting local economies at the expense of global domination by the elites.

English Teacher Online points to a 2017 BBC editorial describing how Western civilization could collapse due to stronger governance globally by countries such as China in the twenty-first century

“By 2050, the US and UK will have evolved into two-class societies where a small elite lives a good life and there is declining well-being for the majority,” Randers says. “What will collapse is equity.”

As campaigns begin for the snap general election in the UK (due to be held on the 8th of June 2017) a debate between people sheltered in their social networks and echo chambers of fake news and political apathy may already be impossible. But since a recent death in the family, I feel compelled to write. It is imperative that we discuss options to take back the UK because that was the 2016 referendum result.

Britain first, if you like?

But who do we take the UK back from? And how?

“While the top 10% of global income earners are responsible for almost as much total greenhouse gas emissions as the bottom 90% combined. Similarly, about half the world’s population lives on less than $3 per day.”

The UK, through Brexit, has a once in a lifetime opportunity to cap excess in a world of finite resources. It could herald the beginning of equality – that not only stabilizes the transition but lays a strong foundation, before the robotic revolution makes slaves/refugees of us all. We should not fear this new technological era but rather plan for a smooth evolution – where people are free to follow a highly cultural and artistic path. We therefore need to put a cap on tax-evading corporations immediately and make provisions for the working class with proper fiscal planning.

Robotic labour will free the working class from many mundane activities and could herald a new Cultural Renaissance in the arts, but only if people have the means (money) to follow their dreams.

Is Money Broken?

Positive Money and the Basic Income Movement is the UK have suggested some credible concepts for funding a new “labour-less society.”

 

Many traditional Tory supporters do not agree with basic income. The most wealthy in society gained from the short term mistakes of quantitative easing, how to waste £375 billion. It will become even more wasteful if the beneficiaries of it (banks, stock markets and big global shareholders) decide to move that money out of the UK to Europe and beyond, post Brexit, in 2019.

 

We should not keep calm and carry on. The working class would be wise to get serious and protect our common interests this Spring.

The two year Brexit timeline with the EU is required to negotiate a new trade deal but more importantly, the British people must now look to protect their sovereign wealth (which was created by the Bank of England) and make sure that cash does not escape to foreign soils. I fear some of the money is escaping as I write, and a vote for Labour (or against the Tories at the very least) on June 8th is our best chance of keeping what’s left, “in the country.”

Once in power, a Labour led Liberal/Green coalition will need to Cap It All (the elites and MNCs) and build a treasure chest to avoid the collapse of Western civilization. They will have to strengthen the powers of the monopolies and mergers regulators too.

The Tory’s have and will sell the working class, our homes and our companies to the highest bidder. What makes you think they won’t make your job redundant too? Without proper labour laws to protect workers’ rights, any number of scenarios could see us living like refugees in our own country by 2050.

 

The debate for Cap It All Ism has never been more urgent and in Jeremy Corbyn we have a Prime Minister in waiting who could lead us out of the EU – securing the means of production for UK workers and worker-shareholders alike. Unfortunately, a smear campaign has harassed our most left wing leader for decades because many people fear what they do not understand.

Can the working class own the means of production?

A country of shopkeepers, service providers and shareholders in the companies that British people have successfully built up over centuries. Co-operatives and local business forums that help to reintegrate the UK independently of Brussels.

Cap It All Ism seeks to reform the relationship between workers and business. If we are to have any chance of negotiating favourable terms with our European neighbours, they (the EU) must recognize the UK as a pioneering leader in Europe – not some delinquent schoolchild who is trying to skip class.

Conflicting Modes of Production

State run communism in Russia and China failed years before those governments finally handed over the means of production to their people. Joseph Stalin and Chairman Mao both denied their working class victors the right to own the means of production – instead centralizing opportunity within their one party systems. When Russia and China did finally allow personal ownership of business, the means of production soon ended up in the hands of oligarchs as ruthless as the elites their original violent revolutions had fought hard to defeat.

How Can I Survive The Apocalypse?

Stop thinking you are one of “them.” You are working class so please remember your roots. As hard as it is to rise to the top – the fall is so much easier. We live on a finite planet with limited resources. Do what’s right for your grandchildren and their grandchildren. Be an Earth Caretaker. Consider yourself one of “us.”

If we are to have a peaceful evolution to Cap It All Ism, a resource based economy that values the economy of natural processes (what nature does for free) – where every transaction is taxed fairly for the benefit of future generations we must all act now, before and on the 8th of June.

In the short term, you may consider growing vegetables and planting fruit trees in your gardens at home. Buy from local suppliers this Spring and boycott products from multinational corporations (MNCs). Any new government would be wise to invest in and support local small holdings, permaculture – the whole farming industry across the UK needs community support.

 

Vocational colleges and the NHS need to be at the forefront of our education policy. The British government could seize all the green patents that are being wasted on the shelves – and make a ten-year plan so the UK becomes a green model of development.

We must become self-sufficient, so if Western civilization collapses, we are ready for whatever the future holds.

We could block the website of any company that sells in the UK but does not pay tax here, or seize their facilities to refashion that capital infrastructure into working co-operatives run by British worker-shareholders. The British elites must consider divestment away from companies who threaten our future – we all need to invest in supporting our local economy.

This is how we take back our country. It’s the elites who push society toward instability and eventual collapse. These elites hoard huge quantities of wealth and resources in a world that is not infinite. They leave little or none for the working class who vastly outnumber them but support them with their labour.

If we do not give Jeremy Corbyn (or a sympathetic coalition) the power to reconstruct the UK, then the working population (NHS) will crash because the portion of wealth allocated to us under the Tories is not enough. If the working class collapses before the robotic revolution, then the elites will also collapse due to an absence of labour.  In either case, the threat of global melt-down further compounds our political choices.

Brexit is a starting point that must not be squandered. Every effort should be made to make the UK sustainable. Devolution of power to the local level can form the basis for a future that 52% of the population felt so passionately to ask for in the 2016 referendum. Never in our history have the masses been so well educated and so ready for a community led Britain.

We have a choice, “We can have full employment fighting a war (the collapse of Western civilization) or we can have full employment developing a sustainable and culturally diverse UK that prospers in the 21st century.”
