Government Capitalism, Democratic Budget & Economics Choices
By Nneka Okumazie
The traits that became architecture[d] into democracy through different eras have failed to hold up against the force power of uniform capitalism.
Whatever made a republic work or a democracy in the past – were mostly behavioural sets, already a norm to the people, or most of them, or the direction they were collectively heading – as indicated.
It wasn’t democracy for the name of the thing and then it’s working. It was mostly we are about this, or should be about this – and for these reasons, we should adhere and then it works, mostly.
However, at present, whatever democracy is in most of the world can be described as capitalism, the predator, with politics its prey, and currents of capital in the capital.
Since this uniform capitalism is regimented, with indicators showing up or slump, the only organization that can mostly withstand its turbulence is government.
Governments already redefined what a loss means. The concept of profit is predominant across capitalism, but the loss is a bigger factor.
For governments, flexibility about loss, lack of competition, revenue source in any form, access to debt, etc. houses compliance to capitalism.
Though an administration could fail due to inflation, losses, etc. and there might be an ancient regime, the organization of government gets back and capitalism gears forward.
Countries around the world have varying amounts of government capitalism infusion [across groups and individuals] but if the most viable business is government, what does it hurt to get in on the action, especially when there are no losses – per capita?
There are different designs of corruption, some disguised, others supererogatory, there is not much care because the loss is nothing.
So, the set-up that should be for the people becomes for uniform capitalism – designed for a few.
There is a limit to things for capitalism to work – money limits, value, credit, supply, product, access, etc. so it is not meant for wide abundance, hence not also for most people.
In the centuries past, with fewer people, it is possible to have certain necessities without necessary capital, but more impossible now, and then population who cannot just fit in.
Capitalism is the game, few win and stay. They know it slips and avoids being deplaned.
A major mistake of present capitalism is the refusal to redefine loss or what losses mean. Losses should have at least a thousand definitions – not the few things that mean below cost price, expiry, etc.
Already, the world is awash with wastes. Wastes are a parallel of loss in some form.
The possibility of waste for most products should open up what losses should mean, in ways that may not be to avoid it but to accommodate it and not fail.
The government already does this.
Also, productivity does not respect wastes because no alternative to known productivity [not decoupling or degrowth] even if waste would be the outcome. So, losses – rigid with capitalism is precipitous.
This capitalism cannot accommodate the current world, with all the balance that has to be kept, favouring a few.
The steady news of economic that and this, is just the wrong problem and focus, for a system that should be extensively widened.
The authority of capitalism has also driven away from the true efforts it takes to create change or make progress.
Since the laws of capitalism must be adhered to, what obeys is valuable, what disobeys is worthless.
What disobeys capitalism could be what would be necessary and create new opportunities, but there may be nothing for it.
Though some governments try on some projects and policies in this direction, certainly limited and other experiments that may work are never planted.
Also, as behaviour must obey capitalism, common evolution grows in that direction, that most people want capitalism excellence even if they are so not unique and they’re not just replaceable but make no existential difference.
Many countries around the world blame bad leadership but maybe no one knows what to do, since the only way to think is how to position for access to currency.
Problems cannot be solved because that is not the focus.
The impossible is not just projects, but can also be genuine behaviours that do not prioritize capitalism.
For some people, they are destabilized by capitalism problems, and because of what societies mark to be signs of accomplishments, they entangle more into situations they would need capitalism to maintain, not the kind of traits that may risk total peril – in pursuit of collective progress.
Governments around the world are centrally capitalist mannequins.
Politics is for the player’s profit.
What a shame.
For the people that become collateral damage, what a loss.
The speed at the cockpit is too different from the fuselage. That is not the journey the world should be comfortable in.
