The Capitalism of Tomorrow: Economic Darwinism

Introduction

The Capitalism of Tomorrow will be a series of essays describing what I see as the best political and sociocultural circumstances for a free market to prosper without enabling subversion or cultural perversion. These articles are largely based on an old unreleased document I worked on throughout 2019, rewritten and reformatted to better fit my current ideas and platform.

This is not a manifesto, but rather a manual on how I would personally shape the power structure of a blank-slate nation in order to bring about the best aforementioned goal. See it as a work of fiction, if you will.

Part 1

Economic Darwinism

“Capitalism is an economic system based on the private ownership of the means of production and their operation for profit. Central characteristics of capitalism include private property and the recognition of property rights, capital accumulation, wage labor, voluntary exchange, a price system and competitive markets. In a capitalist market economy, decision-making and investments are determined by every owner of wealth, property or production ability in financial and capital markets whereas prices and the distribution of goods and services are mainly determined by competition in goods and services markets.”[1]

While that is a fair brief introduction to Capitalism as an economic model, one cannot be properly introduced to my emphatically positive opinion of it without understanding another, ostensibly different concept:

“Darwinism is a theory of biological evolution developed by the English naturalist Charles Darwin (1809–1882) and others, stating that all species of organisms arise and develop through the natural selection of small, inherited variations that increase the individual’s ability to compete, survive, and reproduce.

(…)

These are the basic tenets of evolution by natural selection as defined by Darwin:

  1. More individuals are produced each generation than can survive.
  2. Phenotypic variation exists among individuals and the variation is heritable.
  3. Those individuals with heritable traits better suited to the environment will survive.
  4. When reproductive isolation occurs, new species will form.” [2]

Darwinism, of course, has long expanded from the realm of biology unto the realm of ideology, where it is most commonly known as Social Darwinism, at which point it also immediately goes from being a “theory on biological evolution” to a “part of a series on discrimination”, at least according to Wikipedia, which is very much in line with the popular (i.e. establishment) conception. By taking the aforementioned tenets of evolution and applying it to economics, it quickly becomes evident that any form of legislation or market intervention is inherently calamitous to that natural process.

Nonetheless, most arguments for market interventionism are made on the basis of morality, not efficiency – utterly, they emphasize that morality should be upheld at the expense of efficiency. The beguiling nature of such arguments shall not be tackled in this series as it has long been exposed by Austrian economists. Instead, I shall enjoin that the disorderly and ‘inhumane’ nature of the market is in fact its most redeeming quality. Nothing has ever flourished out of solid concrete.

“It is only due to a predominance of influences that are not only entirely morally indifferent, but indeed — from a human perspective — indescribably cruel, that nature has been capable of constructive action. Specifically, it is solely by way of the relentless, brutal culling of populations that any complex or adaptive traits have been sieved — with torturous inefficiency — from the chaos of natural existence. All health, beauty, intelligence, and social grace has been teased from a vast butcher’s yard of unbounded carnage, requiring incalculable eons of massacre to draw forth even the subtlest of advantages.” [3]

So, what are the inalienable principles of the Capitalism of tomorrow? The same as the Capitalism of today. However, they shall be brought about and maintained by the sword. The Capitalism of Tomorrow will be that of small, politically independent entities of private governance characterized by ethnocultural homogeneity and impelled by techno-capital.

Today, those who dissent are to be forcibly suppressed by the supra-natural system they oppose. Tomorrow, those who dissent will have their socioeconomic and – eventually – biological ostracization brought about by none other than themselves.

      The form of government and theology will be covered in later parts (perhaps part 2 even), but I won’t be discussing democracy so here’s briefly what I think of it:

      Democracy is the worst form of government because it inherently conflates the ruling class with the masses. It ultimately delegitimizes power, systematically increases time preference and gradually drags the nation towards communism. I recommend the work of Hans-Hermann Hoppe for justifications for all of that.

  1. Hi there would you mind letting me know which hosting company you’re using?
    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different web browsers and I must say this blog loads
    a lot faster then most. Can you recommend a good internet hosting provider at a honest price?

    Kudos, I appreciate it! I’ve been surfing online more than 2 hours today,
    yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet
    will be a lot more useful than ever before. I needed to thank you for this excellent read!!
    I definitely enjoyed every bit of it. I’ve got you book-marked to look at new things you http://apple.com

  2. Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads
    up. The text in your article seem to be running off the screen in Ie.
    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with
    web browser compatibility but I thought I’d
    post to let you know. The design look great though!
    Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Kudos
