After Capitalism


As with a lot of material seeking to foresee some future utopian governing philosophy or structure, these little animated pieces are short on specifics and quite generalized. But I was interested to see them appear in a very mainstream (for Britain) news outlet. The animation is stylistically anti-tech, but obviously tech savvy, or “tech native” as the youngsters might say.

It is good to see people thinking about it though. I don’t know about you, but I get a sense from people of all different political and social persuasions that things as they are can’t possibly last for long, and we should be thinking and talking about what might come next, or what we would like to see develop in that (this?) next phase of the World.

So, what do you think of the future?

    Actually, I’m still waiting for us to give capitalism a try. You know, where people pursue their interests and government works to prevent antisocial monopoly and concentration.

    I’m usually the resident idealist dreaming of Utopia.

    In this case, I think anyone who thinks a world without a bastardized version of capitalism is possible just needs to watch “The God’s Must Be Crazy.” Keep in mind, the tribe never heard of “Coca Cola,” and, it all started with ONE.

    Actually, this kind of reminds me of the show called, “After Humans.”

    Didn’t watch most of it, honestly, but, the concept was what the world would be like after humans disappear.

    Like John Lennon said, “Imagine.”

    Capitalism has not yet existed. What we have is interventionism. We are still living “Before Capitalism.” It would be a bright future indeed were we to ever reach it.

  5. Communism has not yet existed. What we have is interventionism. We are still living “Before Communism”. It would be a bright future indeed were we ever to reach it.

    (slightly altered from Mr. Peck’s to reflect proper punctuation and grammar. I guess Moffitt did not write that one for him)

    Pre-order the new book “Free Market Revolution” by Yaron Brook

    Tim never really posts anything in his own words, does he?

    I bet when his math teacher asked him to show his work on exams, he just drew a picture of him copying someone else’s paper.

    He’d be lousy at being an individual in a Randian society.

    Libertopia can be found in Somalia. No government regulation there at all.

  9. Actually, that could change. There are currently efforts in Somalia to restart some semblance of central government there after a twenty-year absence.

    Don’t let another vacation be ruined by socialism. Come to Somalia!
