America is "the new model for the new concentration camp where the camp has been built by the inmates themselves and the inmates are the guards and they have this pride in this thing they've built. They've built their own prison and so they exist in a state of schizophrenia where they are both guards and prisoners. And as a result, having been [psychologically] lobotomized, they no longer have the capacity to leave the prison they've made or to even see it as a prison."
by Wallace Shawn and Andre Gregory
"One fascinating discovery about our past is that for millennia--a span of time many times longer than the 5,000 years conventionally counted as history--prehistoric societies worshipped the Goddess of nature and spirituality, our great Mother, the giver of life and creator of all. But even more fascinating is that these ancient societies were structured very much like the more peaceful and just society we are now trying to construct. This is not to say that these were ideal societies or utopias. But, unlike our societies, they were not warlike. They were not societies where women were subordinate to men. And they did not see our Earth as an object for exploitation and domination. In short, they were societies that had what we today call an ecological consciousness: the awareness that the Earth must be treated with reverence and respect. And this reverence for the life-giving and life-sustained powers of the Earth was rooted in a social structure where women and "feminine" values such as caring, compassion, and nonviolence were not subordinate to men and the so-called masculine values of conquest and domination. Rather, the life-giving powers incarnated in women's bodies were given the highest social value." |
"The cleavage of society into contending classes with opposed interests created the need for a public apparatus which could be used to regulate the antagonisms while maintaining the power and privileges of the propertied ruling class. Thus the state arose, with its judiciary, bodies of armed men (always men), and prisons to keep order on behalf of the wealthy exploiters. As the matriarchal clan commune was undermined, the collective democratic administration of affairs was likewise corroded. In place of the former female counselors or 'governesses' and their 'wise counsel,' there arose the coercive power of the armed forces. Chiefs who had formerly been chosen to carry out the decisions of the community became military leader in the service of the male masters of society." 3
"The rich man . . . conceived at length the profoundest plan that ever entered the mind of man: this was to employ in his favour the forces of those who attacked him, to make allies of his adversaries, to inspire them with different maxims, and to give them other institutions as favourable to himself as the law of nature was unfavourable.|
"With this view, after having represented to his neighbours the horror of a situation which armed every man against the rest, and made their possessions as burdensome to them as their wants, and in which no safety could be expected either in riches or in poverty, he readily devised plausible arguments to make them close with his design. 'Let us join,' said he, 'to guard the weak from oppression, to restrain the ambitious, and secure to every man the possession of what belongs to him: let us institute rules of justice and peace, to which all without exception may be obliged to conform; rules that may in some measure make amends for the caprices of fortune, by subjecting equally the powerful and the weak to the observance of reciprocal obligations. Let us, in a word, instead of turning our forces against ourselves, collect them in a supreme power which may govern us by wise laws, protect and defend all the members of the association, repulse their common enemies, and maintain eternal harmony among us.
"Such was, or may well have been, the origin of society and law, which bound new fetters on the poor, and gave new powers to the rich; which irretrievably destroyed natural liberty, eternally fixed the law of property and inequality, converted clever usurpation into unalterable right, and, for the advantage of a few ambitious individuals, subjected all mankind to perpetual labour, slavery and wretchedness."

A sack of wheat, let's say, costs $1.00
The use of the means of production (the mill) for this job costs $1.00
The owner of the means of production (the capitalist) pays you $1.00 for your labor
The capitalist sells the sack of ground wheat for $8.00
Your labor has turned $1.00 dollar of wheat plus $1.00 in production costs plus $1.00 for your labor, into a commodity which is sold for $8.00. The profit is $5.00. The owner of the means of production (the capitalist) makes 5 times more in profit than you do in wages, plus he owns and can sell the means of production whenever he wants. And he can select cheaper labor as he pleases.
||The ratio of average chief executive pay to worker
pay is 550 to 1 in 2015, up from 301 to 1 in 2003.
All natural commodities such as wheat should belong to all the workers in a society.
All means of production (capital goods) should be the property of all the workers in a society.
|| Only persons in a society should receive remuneration (money or goods) who have labored in the production of goods and services and all should receive an equal share.|
Capitalism has historically always involved racist genocide.|
Workers throughout the world are being murdered through capitalist socially-engineered autogenocide.
Capitalist genocide is similar to Marxist and Nazi genocide

| "The immanent tendencies of the capitalist mode of production which propel it towards a catastrophic economic crisis, also drive it towards mass murder and genocide." |

Even though there are enough goods and services in the world to provide for all people if we produce for human use, under capitalism, the wealthy few benefit while the worker class suffers death (from imperialist wars, starvation, and homelessness), unemployment, destitution, and poverty.
There are enough goods and services in the world to provide for all people in the world if we produce for human use instead of for the profit of the capitalist class.
| "Capitalism is admittedly an incredibly productive system that has created a flood of goods unlike anything the world has ever seen. It also is a system that is fundamentally (1) inhuman, (2) anti-democratic, and (3) unsustainable. Capitalism has given those of us in the First World lots of stuff (most of it of marginal or questionable value) in exchange for our souls, our hope for progressive politics, and the possibility of a decent future for children."|
Even though most Americans' minds have been destroyed by capitalist ideology, propaganda, and brainwashing, the few intelligent persons remaining can and must expose capitalism and begin developing new societal concepts and structures.
This is not only a desirable goal, it is actually essential if humankind is to survive capitalist annihilation. Humans, with the assistance of persons such as Plato, were able to recover from the mind-destruction of the oral phase in fifth century Greece.
The Perennialist stream of thought was re-introduced into the West beginning about 1000 C. E., and all the depraved offenses against human nature the Church and capitalist dictators could muster were not enough to impede the onward flow of human illumination and development. The Perennialist tidal flow carried forward, eventuating in the Renaissance, the cultural movement beginning in central Italy in the late 14th century. It initiated a rebirth of science, philosophy, art and poetry. Renaissance humanism was characterized by an attitude and way of life centered on human interests or values, stressing an individual's dignity and worth and capacity for self-realization through reason and other human skills. Among the Renaissance humanists, Platonic and neo-Platonic thought once more assumed central importance. The writings of antiquity were translated by Renaissance scholars such as Ficino, making it possible to regain the insights and wisdom of earlier cultures.
"A new society is possible only if, in the process of developing it, a new human being also develops, or in more modest terms, if a fundamental change occurs in contemporary Man's character structure. . .|
"The need for profound human change emerges not only as an ethical or religious demand, not only as a psychological demand arising from the pathogenic nature of our present social character, but also as a condition for the sheer survival of the human race. Right living is no longer only the fulfillment of an ethical or religious demand. For the first time in history the physical survival of the human race depends on a radical change of the human heart. However, a change of the human heart is possible only to the extent that drastic economic and social changes occur that give the human heart the chance for change and the courage and vision to achieve it."
