CITATION
Rasheed, Muhammad. "The Follow Through." Cartoon. The Official Website of Cartoonist M. Rasheed 16 Sep 2019. Pen & ink w/Adobe Photoshop color.

Eric Chef Raffy - There are always candidates like Marianne Williamson who claim to support a black agenda but realistically she knows and everyone else knows that she doesn't have a real chance at being elected. If Ados came together to support our own candidate in the democratic primary then that could actually help to build a movement. You'll never get all blacks to support anyone but If we could get 60-75% of blacks supporting the same candidate in the primary then they would have a chance. The key to this working would be for us to build alliances with both whites and other non Ados groups.

Muhammad Rasheed - You lost me with the last sentence.

Muhammad Rasheed - Or let me say this:

It depends on WHEN in the struggle this alliance should take place.

Eric Chef Raffy - You don't understand the importance of alliances or what?

Muhammad Rasheed - If you think this alliance will happen NOW when we are still trying to build up our own lineage/heritage identity, then your message will doom us to yet more sabotage.

The alliances have to happen AFTER full-on ADOS Empowerment, Economic Inclusion, and self-reliance. #StudyHistory #LessonsLearned

Design Flaw in the Left's Faux Cure-All

CITATION
Rasheed, Muhammad. "Design Flaw in the Left's Faux Cure-All." Cartoon. The Official Website of Cartoonist M. Rasheed 10 Sep 2019. Pen & ink w/Adobe Photoshop color.

Ed Savage - My only question, and I understand you are trying to make out all white people as racist, is - is there no black/brown skinned socialists?

Muhammad Rasheed - On the left is the 1% class, with the percentage of Black people so low in that group it's like they don't even matter at all.

Muhammad Rasheed - The grand reveal is that the concept of socialism is actually a scheme invented by the 1% grifter class to continue to supplant competition in the free markets so they'll maintain their wealth hoarding monopolies. The very LAST group they would EVER want to compete equally with is the black American Descendants of Slavery. So any 'black socialists' are just indoctrinated puppets of the 1% and aren't real.

Ed Savage - OK. Got it. I am saddened for both you and me that life has been so bad for you, racially speaking, that this is such a big focus for you. Even more saddened that there is too much truth to what you are saying. And yet I can't help but feel like I am being lumped in with that 1%, though I am far from it, and being painted with the same brush. Is there nothing good about the United States in your mind? Not trying to start a fight or be an ass, I am honestly asking.

Muhammad Rasheed - Ed wrote: "OK. Got it. I am saddened for both you and me that life has been so bad for you, racially speaking, that this is such a big focus for you.”

Fortunately, I subscribe to one of the Abrahamic organized religions and recognize, per the Word of my Lord, that we are tested in this life with both adversity and prosperity to build up our character and save our souls. I am not saddened, Ed, but invigorated for the challenge of the fight ahead, as I am assured that my Lord is with me for as long as I believe and persevere. As long as I fight In the name of God and never give up, all will be well.

Ed wrote: "Even more saddened that there is too much truth to what you are saying.”

It is more sad that so many lie under the lies of falsehood. Truth liberates. It is liberating to look directing into my enemy’s eye and accurately discern truth from the beast’s lies. It gives my work the purpose I was born for.

Ed wrote: "And yet I can't help but feel like I am being lumped in with that 1%, though I am far from it, and being painted with the same brush.”

The 1% grafter class are a very, very tiny portion of the white racist aristocracy. The rest of the so-called white peoples – of far lesser net worth – are the ones who guard the system and both support and protect the White Supremacist Ideology and the anti-Black systemic racism for which it stands. The 1% doesn’t do the work subjugating, exploiting and plundering ADOS to maintain their wealth hoards. The other whites do this. The Candid & Courageous Conversation needed to finally cure our nation of this great evil will require you to take a hard look at where you stand in the aristocracy’s hierarchy.

Ed wrote: "Is there nothing good about the United States in your mind.”

Of course. I built this country. I was deliberately cut off from everything I once knew in Africa and now know ONLY the dormant and unfulfilled greatness of the ideals of the United States of America that my abused ethnic group longs to experience for ourselves. America is my home and my home is worth fighting for.

[REVIEW] Dave Chappelle's Sticks & Stones



Anonymous - Did Dave Chappelle go too far in his latest Netflix special “Sticks & Stones?”

Muhammad Rasheed - No, I don’t think he went too far. We need to have that Candid & Courageous Conversation on every topic Dave touched upon. Here’s my takeaway bullets from his show:

  • Founding Fathers writing the Constitution – Every key moment in the building of the United States of America we find a Black person taking it to the next level. White supremacists enjoy revealing their ignorance of history and the depths of their anti-Black indoctrination by boldly asking “What contributions have ADOS ever made to civilization?”
  • Leaving Neverland“I’m going to say something really controversial: I don’t believe these mother*ckas.” Nuff said.
  • Standards & Practices“Because, David, you aren’t gay.” The strength of Chappelle’s comedy insight is pointing out the hypocrisy in the national social justice discourse. If the black American Descendants of Slavery (ADOS) do not aggressively fight for their rights and freedoms, they will get ran over by every other special interest group who is unapologetically pushing & shoving to position themselves towards political advantage, and we will find ourselves back in chattel. Period.
  • The G’s are Driving that Car – White men are the driving force behind the gay rights movement and they are able to achieve the socio-political progress they make by negotiating through the roads of discrimination because they built those roads. Brilliant insight.
  • Chappelle’s Solution to the Abortion Issue - “And if I’m wrong, perhaps we’re both wrong.” Dave’s comment is the summary of what is actually happening in society: abortion is normal, as is the male abandonment of the child born outside of wedlock. Both are the extreme side effects of the sexual revolution which violently rebelled against traditionalist family trends born from an often oppressive patriarchal system. There’s obvious levels of blatant irresponsibility and immorality inherent within each gender’s approach, but I’m more interested in whether the future discussions will ever clear the hurdles of blind political ideology to determine when it will ever be time for that pendulum to finally swing away from the “death & abandonment” side of the spectrum to rest at a more reasonable middle ground that enables us to approach something significantly closer to a healthy society.
  • Disarm America’s Whites – That’s adorable. Obviously arming ADOS is the way to go for far more valuable reasons than what was stated in Dave’s punchline.
  • ADOS Saving America Again – As pointed out in the 1619 Project, ADOS has always believed in the highest ideals of the United States of America, and has used the force of that belief to build up the country on the policy side whenever they got the chance to. The dominant group obviously only wants the USA to work for them alone, and routinely molest it to support their precious white racist aristocracy. If ADOS doesn’t do the work then it won’t get done, but the rub is that we CAN’T neglect ourselves in the doing. Make sure we fight equally for our ADOS Reparations, ADOS socio-political empowerment and our ADOS economic inclusion while we seize the nation by the ear and frog march it towards the greatness of its woefully neglected dormant potential.
  • Battle of the Drug Epidemics “Because I don’t care either.” I agree with Dave in every way on this item. Are you REALLY trying to get me to feel sorry for your hypocritical, drug addicted stank ass while you STILL criminalize ADOS under the anti-Black banner of the so-called ‘War on Drugs?” A public policy of treating opioid addicted white people with care, respect & love while continuing to treat my people like crap is an open declaration of the formal race war as far as I’m concerned.
  • Jussie Smollett – Dave pointed out that during the early stages of the controversy, the gay community charged the ADOS community of not being supportive enough of their issues. I noticed that the gay community is very aggressive in pushing for their political agenda bullets, but actively attack ADOS when we aggressively fight for ours with an equal single-minded focus – the same level of focus the LGBTQ has used to achieve their milestone accomplishments. They should back off since this behavior can only be interpreted as bullying and it’s NOT how to maintain an ally.

Josh Humphries - Are these supposed to have any element of humor in them? I agree with the politics but I cant tell if the intention is to put a spin on the subject matter or if it's just in the format of a comic strip but without any form of humor or punchline. I dont think the comic strip format is reserved only for humor but the basic tenets of a one panel strip has me expecting either a punchline or a sense of irony, hypocrisy or both, layed wide open.

Muhammad Rasheed - Josh wrote: "... me expecting either a punchline or a sense of irony, hypocrisy or both..."

Considering 'socialism' and it's related systems are traditionally presented in the modern day as the natural counter to the 1% grifter class' crony corporatism, you don't recognize the irony in the revelation "that unhindered concentration of power leads predictably to socialism that is antagonistic to our system?"

Josh Humphries - I do, but only if I concentrate really hard, and even then I cant tell if Ive missed something. You pack alot into a single balloon. Thanks for getting back to me.

Muhammad Rasheed - lol No prob.

CITATION
Rasheed, Muhammad. "Placating the Former Competition." Cartoon. The Official Website of Cartoonist M. Rasheed 05 Sep 2019. Pen & ink w/Adobe Photoshop color.

Bob Heather - I genuinely used to think you were smart. You've managed to prove me wrong once again with your right wing, boogie man socialism scare mongering.

Muhammad Rasheed - If it helps, I never thought you were smart. ;)

Bob Heather - @Muhammad... yeah, that just shows again how fucking stupid you are.

Muhammad Rasheed - Clearly not.

I'm also "impressed" with your amazing level of 'debate' skill.

Muhammad Rasheed - The leftist economic systems are not the cure for the evils of the monopolists' crony corporatism, but are the long-planned end results of it.

You are a mouthpiece for the anti-capitalist 1% grifter class while pretending otherwise. So you are either equally sneaky and diabolical or you are "fucking stupid." Pick one and wear it proudly.

Bob Heather - @Muhammad... anti-capitalist 1%? Holy fucking hell, you don't just lick the boot you deep throat that shit. Who fucking brainwashed you? You're really just a right wing shit bag, aren't you? Drinking that faux news koolaid and worshiping at the altar of trumpism.

Bob Heather - You literally pull out the schoolyard "I'm rubber and you're glue" then insult my debate skills? If you could actually make a coherent logical point I would debate that. But, you're just some fucking unfunny schlub who believes in right wing conspiracy theories that follow absolutely no logic.

Bob Heather - Hope your still waving the banner of pro capitalism when his goons throw you in a concentration camp.

Muhammad Rasheed - Bob wrote: "You literally pull out the schoolyard 'I'm rubber and you're glue' then insult my debate skills?"

Look up at the very first comment in this thread. That's you being a juvenile clown. You've brought zero value to any of these discussion. You have no debate skills.

Muhammad Rasheed - Bob wrote: "anti-capitalist 1%?"

Exactly. There would be no 1%... no billionaire class... if it weren't for those greedy assholes warring against capitalism. Starting with J.D. Rockefeller's Standard Oil, they are the reason antitrust laws were created (see: the history leading up to the passing of the so-called Sherman Act), because of their thirst for monopolizing the open free markets capitalism needs in order to function.

The only people who say capitalism is a bad thing are the greedy 1% grifter class themselves and YOU... their left-wing puppets.

So you are either operating out of a genuine indoctrinated ignorance, or you're a damned agenteur working for the 1% pretending you're for the people. Which is it, Bob?

Muhammad Rasheed - Bob wrote: "You're really just a right wing shit bag, aren't you? Drinking that faux news koolaid and worshiping at the altar of trumpism."

No. I'm a black American Descendant of Slavery (#ADOS) who recognizes that white people on BOTH sides of the partisan divide are out of their damned minds and always have been. Get yourself together, please. Your antics are tiresome.

Brian Jones - So I notice that every time you post one of these and get any friction, you copy the thread's posts and add them to your own personal page under the comic. Are you actually participating here for collaborative discussion, education, and learning or are you just looking to get friction so you can post it as content to your own site for your own benefit?

Because if you're just here to generate content for yourself off of exploiting our effort in discussions, you can take that grifter-class capitalist nonsense somewhere else.

Muhammad Rasheed - @Brian... Long ago, I lost an excellent thread discussion due to some jackass deleting it because he got all up in his ignorant feelings about the flow of the conversation. Since then I make sure to capture threads for my own reference material whenever they get some length to them. This is particularly important to me because 1) I value active and engaged dialog as a potent learning tool, and 2) I use these discussions as fuel for my editorial cartoon oeuvre.

Joe Montana - Socialism aiming at communism does not break them off a piece of the wealth; it appropriates the capital in totum for all, with literally none left for not only the 1%, but any capitalist or would-be capitalist.

Muhammad Rasheed - The truth is the opposite of what you typed. That 100 yr old leftist bamboozle has handed the world to the 1% grifter class.

Joe Montana - You might want to study history more carefully. That 1% class existed long before there was any proletarian state on the planet.

Muhammad Rasheed - "Handed the world to the 1% grifter class" implies that the class already existed, bud, but were further empowered by you beyond what they had any right to and against the wishes of the people themselves, whom the left has betrayed. You may wish to improve your reading comprehension skills.

Joe Montana - Your grasp of history is counterfactual and conspiratorial.

Muhammad Rasheed - lol Your grasp of history is nonexistent.

Muhammad Rasheed - Go away, Joe.

Brian Jones - Are you aware that the Socialist Party views welfare programs as product of capitalism. So you aren't wrong in painting welfare as a stop-gap of the 1%. But depending on the reading this also comes across like the liberal concept that the New Deal was socialist.

Statement of Principles of the Socialist Party USA

-Socialist Society

=Full Employment

Under welfare capitalism, a reserve pool of people is kept under-educated, under-skilled and unemployed, largely along racial and gender lines, to exert pressure on those who are employed and on organized labor. The employed pay for this knife that capitalism holds to their throats by being taxed to fund welfare programs to maintain the unemployed and their children. In this way the working class is divided against itself; those with jobs and those without are separated by resentment and fear. In socialism, full employment is realized for everyone who wants to work.

Muhammad Rasheed - Brian wrote: “Are you aware that the Socialist Party views welfare programs as product of capitalism.”

I’m aware that groups like that routinely vilify capitalism on behalf of the 1% grifter class whose ideologies they mimic ad support. Welfare programs are band-aid measures invented by the 1% that enable them to maintain their wealth & power monopoly without triggering the artificially created poor class into rioting.

Brian wrote: “So you aren't wrong in painting welfare as a stop-gap of the 1%. But depending on the reading this also comes across like the liberal concept that the New Deal was socialist.”

The New Deal was a racist exclusionary scheme designed to strengthen the white racist aristocracy.

"Under [capitalism crony corporatism], [the majority of the population] is kept under-educated, under-skilled and unemployed, largely along racial lines, to [prevent the risk of fair competition from toppling the balance of power]."

*fixed to reflect reality*

Conflict of Interest

Click for Artist's Description

2019 Glyph Comics Award Winner (BEST COMIC STRIP OR WEBCOMIC)!

CITATION
Rasheed, Muhammad. "Conflict of Interest." Cartoon. The Official Website of Cartoonist M. Rasheed 04 Sep 2019. Pen & ink w/Adobe Photoshop color.

Brian Jones - aw come on man, my hair’s only just started to thin I’m not THAT bald yet, and I can’t drink on account of medical issues. Also? Are there any leftists actually trying to make a turtle neck and vest work?

100% got my gut correct though.

Muhammad Rasheed - I came up with the vest/turtleneck combo on the fly. lol

Brian Jones - if you want to go for more accuracy and less looking like every “evil non-Christian professor” from a Jack Chic tract try “looks like someone put Gavin McGinnis and Charles Manson in a blender, poured that into a Canadian metal band’s tour shirt, and let them reach Dad Bod 2: Beyond Thunderthighs”. That’s the look I’m stuck rocking (seriously Gavin McGinnis makes me want to shave every time I see his fash face)

Brian Jones - Also for more accuracy, I believe in the practice of reparations. I also believe in bottom up community centered revolutionary action. So if your community wants nothing to do with bringing down capitalism, I'm not here to tell any of you what to think or do. I can try to convince you that capitalists will do everything they can to recuperate activism for reparations and then spin their neo-liberal policies as "having done that job already". They'll do everything they can to call any olive branch "reparations already paid" rather than dismantling their own hereditary networks of wealth built in large part off of stealing 100% of the value of slave labor and then criminalizing black men for existing so they could continue to do so.

We aren't arguing that capitalism is "magically bad" we're arguing that the theory and praxis of capitalism just necessarily leads to undemocratic class stratification where a capitalist ruling class enriches themselves off of the labor of an exploited working class and maintains a surplus class of un- and under-employeed labor in order to keep labor in line with the threat of someone else getting their job and them being kicked down into the underclass.

Muhammad Rasheed - Brian wrote: "if you want to go for more accuracy..."
No need. It was not a caricature of any individual, but a caricature of the argument.

Brian wrote: "I also believe in bottom up community centered revolutionary action."
So do I, hence my support for the #ADOS movement.

Brian wrote: "So if your community wants nothing to do with bringing down capitalism [...] I can try to convince you that capitalists will [...] we're arguing that the theory and praxis of capitalism just necessarily leads to..."

Your ideologically-biased definition of capitalism is severely flawed and 100% not shared by me. Capitalism is good for the people; competition spreads the wealth and drives down prices among other benefits. It's the usurpation of capitalism's open markets by the 1% monopolists that is the bad thing. The enactment of your over-hyped "socialism" is what happens when the chronic poverty inflicted by the 1% grifter class' greed reaches critical mass and they partner with the gov to feed you while keeping the lion's share of societal revenue is the bad guy's end goal. In this, the left functions as nothing more than the marketing arm for evil and you are supporting the buy guy's ultimate plans.

Joe Montana - Who is this supposed to be? And of course communists are against capitalism, and far from it being a shallow ideology, it’s one of the most backed theories around.

Muhammad Rasheed - Joe wrote: "Who is this supposed to be?"

A proponent of communism.

Joe wrote: "And of course communists are against capitalism..."

That's why they're trash.

Joe wrote: "...and far from it being a shallow ideology..."

Meanwhile, it's very shallow. And ignorant.

Joe wrote: "...it’s one of the most backed theories around."

Your logical fallacy is: Appeal to the People (argumentum ad populum) "The fallacy of attempting to win popular assent to a conclusion by arousing the feeling and enthusiasms of the multitude. It's the fallacy of attempting to prove a conclusion on the grounds that all or most people think or believe it is true."

Joe Montana - I’m not appealing to the people at all. My argument was that it is backed with solid argumentation as well as empirical proof.

It’s hardly remarkable for someone in the West to be anticommunist and procapitalist. It takes real work to liberate oneself from propaganda and get to the truth.

Far from being shallow, communism represents the deepest yearnings of the masses of humanity going back thousands of years. If you adjudge that shallow, I suppose that says something about you.

Joe Montana - I was wondering if it was supposed to be Paul Cockshott.

Muhammad Rasheed - Joe wrote: "I’m not appealing to the people at all."

Meanwhile, you literally "appealed to the people" by saying that it's "one of the most backed theories around."

Joe wrote: "...it is backed with solid argumentation as well as empirical proof."
Meanwhile, it does neither. The people flourish under the properly regulated open markets of capitalism, and suffer under the 1% grifter class' versions of communism/socialism that were designed to enable them to continue to hoard wealth & power while giving the masses a little bit of it to shut them up.

Joe wrote: "It’s hardly remarkable for someone in the West to be anticommunist and procapitalist."

Meanwhile, the entire left-wing is pro-communist it looks like, and most people hate capitalism for two reasons:

1.) They are very wealthy monopolists and recognize that capitalism would distribute the wealth fairly preventing them from monopolizing the markets

2.) They falsely believe the 1% grifter class are capitalists who use capitalist principles to amass their obscene wealth.

Joe wrote: "Far from being shallow, communism represents..."

...that very shallowness you currently deny.

Joe wrote: "If you adjudge that shallow, I suppose that says something about you."

Muhammad RasheedThe White Liberal's Classic Attempt to Cancel ADOS Reparations

Chelsea Rustad - Since when do liberals critique capitalism ever? The Democrats are an openly capitalist party.

Muhammad Rasheed - On social media.

Chelsea Rustad - I’ve literally never seen it happen. All they do is make excuses for capitalists and their failures

Muhammad Rasheed - I'm not denying that's your own experience. But my experiences with them are the inspiration for my cartoons.

Chelsea Rustad - ok well capitalism is 100% garbage and there is no such thing as capitalism for the people, unless those people are bosses, developers, and landlords

Muhammad Rasheed - That's the rhetoric propaganda of the followers of Marx. It doesn't accurately describe capitalism, but the crony corporatism which is the enemy of capitalism.

Capitalism requires the open markets to function, and those markets are vulnerable to the greed of the wealthy, who always seeks to close the markets with monopoly. Only gov regulation (antitrust law) can protect capitalism's for-the-people markets from the greed-fueled 1% grifter class.

Muhammad Rasheed - The bad guys of the story hate capitalism, and have no problem allowing you to continue to vilify it like this since they don't want it themselves. If you win in your desire to kill capitalism, the 1% will win.

Chelsea Rustad - Crony capitalism is capitalism. It’s never been good for anyone. Btw the 1% already one.

Muhammad Rasheed - Crony corporatism is literally the enemy of capitalism. I am under no illusion in that regard.

We'll have to agree to disagree on this, Chelsea. Your ideological opinion of the topic doesn't align with the facts of history revealed through my research. Capitalism isn't a tool of the enemy, it's a weapon of the people, and that's why the bad guys hate it. 

Capitalism needs competition in order to work, while the bad guys cut off competition so all revenue will funnel to their little class alone. A multi-millionaire or billionaire class isn't possible under a well-regulated capitalist open free market competition. The signs are right in front of you.

Chelsea Rustad - you’re in the wrong forum if you worship capitalism. Capitalism is right wing, period.

Muhammad Rasheed - I'm Muslim. I worship the One God alone. Your comment is offensive.

Chelsea Rustad - Promoting a murderous ideology like capitalism in a leftist forum is offensive.

Muhammad Rasheed - Capitalism isn't a murderous ideology. The crony corporatism that usurped it to empower a 1% minority of greedy wealth & power hoarders are responsible for the murderous standard operating procedure that is falsely (and religiously) labeled "capitalism."

Muhammad Rasheed - The old trading companies that drove the logistics of the Trans-Atlantic Slave trade represented a cartel in partnership with the monarchies of Europe. They operated in a deliberately closed market, which means by definition it was not capitalism.

Brian Jones - Yes, when a true capitalist system begins there is 100% open and honest competition... among those who already have enough hereditary wealth to enclose large swaths of common means under their name, use that ownership to siphon off excess value from those who now have to labor for them in order to access wages and buy back access to the now enclosed commons, and to pay the state to turn the police into a force to enforce their enclosure claims against any organization by those without massive amounts of inherited wealth.

After that, anyone who had a family that managed to run the systemic gauntlet and gain a large amount of wealth can potentially acquire their own means of production with which they can siphon off the excess value of their own laborers.

With or without "cronyism", capitalism still relies a class of people who undemocratically own all the means to survival and voting with your dollars means that the people who own your labor and thus your wages can vote with your dollars no matter what you think.

Muhammad Rasheed - Brian wrote: “Yes, when a true capitalist system begins…”

It’s not a matter of how it begins; it’s a matter of how the economic system actually functions, what defines it, and what causes it to no longer be.

Brian wrote: “…there is 100% open and honest competition...”

The competition of the open markets is how capitalism works. Without it, it is no longer capitalism.

Brian wrote: “…among those who already have enough hereditary wealth to…”

Whether the people who show up to a given marketplace are able to take advantage of the obvious or established business opportunities presented is a completely different item. There is a certain amount of creativity in being able to see or find opportunities, even to create whole new markets. As long as the people are allowed to buy/sell in those markets in a well-regulated competition, it is a healthy capitalist system than works for the people, both as consumers and as entrepreneurs.

Brian wrote: “…enclose large swaths of common means under their name, use that ownership to…”
Once unscrupulous people start manipulating the markets to benefit themselves alone, locking others out to rid themselves of competition, we are no longer talking about a capitalistic system, but the diabolical enemy of capitalism.

Brian wrote: “…and to pay the state to turn the police into a force to enforce their enclosure claims against any organization by those without massive amounts of inherited wealth.”

This is the “crony” aspect of ‘crony corporatism’ that now shut down the open markets to benefit the few over the many. This is not capitalism, which requires the competition of free open markets to function.

Brian wrote: “With or without ‘cronyism,’ capitalism still relies a class of people who undemocratically own all the means to survival and voting with your dollars means that the people who own your labor and thus your wages can vote with your dollars no matter what you think.”

This part doesn’t make sense. When a successful, but greedy and unscrupulous businessman uses cronyism to pay equally greedy and unscrupulous government officials off to violate antitrust laws and look the other way so the businessman can close the markets by monopolizing the industry, it is now crony corporatism and not capitalism. The free markets of capitalism are fragile for this reason, and need the government to enforce antitrust to protect them from the very anti-capitalism practice of monopoly. The people need to use their political might to force the U.S. government to do its job to protect their markets from the wealthy and their greed-fueled overreach.

Laura Saylor - That approach has been a repeated total utter colossal failure because the very structure of capitalism is inherently designed to benefit what you refer to, in far right terms, as 'crony capitalism; or 'corporatism'.

Muhammad Rasheed - The greed of individuals on both the business side and the government side is the problem here. No matter what economic system is in place, there will be the greedy few conspiring to grift the people. The structure of capitalism was never the problem, but the mentality of the criminal grifter class willing to break capitalism's structure for their own goals to the detriment of the greater good.

Kyle Harrington - Late stage grift scheme that usurped capitalism?

I live in the UK, and know a fair amount about working class history. After all, we were the birthplace of the industrial revolution, the textile industry and the capitalist/worker class system.

Tell me, were things really wonderful during the early stages of capitalism, before organised trade unions? Before the working week? When half the kids were sent down mines and the other half lost limbs in factories?

- This meme is surely a joke.

Muhammad Rasheed - Kyle wrote: “Late stage grift scheme that usurped capitalism?”

Precisely so.

Kyle wrote: “I live in the UK, and know a fair amount about working class history. After all, we were the birthplace of…”

It sounds like you’re saying that because you were born in a particular place, it magically means you are an expert in a subject without needing to do any research into it. Do you expect me to take that seriously? Please do a better job in making your point clear if this is not what you meant to convey.

Kyle wrote: “Tell me, were things really wonderful during the early stages of capitalism, before organised trade unions?”

Yes, for as long as the open markets were allowed to provide safe spaces for businesses to fairly compete. The problems began, in the usual fashion, when the most successful businesses partnered with the gov to selfishly close the markets with monopoly—the open markets capitalism needs to function on its most fundamental level.

Our organized trade unions were started by white racists who sought to monopolize the trade jobs from the black American Descendants of Slavery (ADOS) whose legacy of skilled-trade hard work they carried over from the slave institution. The original trade union whites resented ADOS and sought to take that inherent job security piece from them for their own use.

Kyle wrote: “Before the working week? When half the kids were sent down mines and the other half lost limbs in factories?”

Government regulation is a normal part of capitalism, which requires it to protect the markets anyway. If the people determine that hey require further gov protections to guard them from the meanness of unscrupulous and greedy individual employers, what of it? How would that be a slight against the economic system itself?

Kyle wrote: “This meme is surely a joke.”

No.

Timothy Fitch - The only party that represents the interests of the international working class is the Socialist Equality Party. The rest manage/negotiate within capitalism and always fail

Muhammad Rasheed - Does the Socialist Equality Party support reparations for the black American Descendants of Slavery?

Bob Heather - @Muhammad... why are you so in love with a system that is designed to oppress and exploit you? There is no equality under capitalism.

Muhammad Rasheed - I'm not under the anti-capitalism delusion of that ideology and quite simply disagree with you, Bob.

Bob Heather - @Muhammad... so, you want the oligarchs to continue to buy politicians and rule over the common person. You do realize, fascism is the strong arm of capitalism, right? The two are inseparable.

Laura Saylor - @Muhammad... I, for one, support reparations and oppose capitalism and support socialism.

Brian Jones - Any revolutionary dismantling of capitalism should require some method of paying back laborers for their stolen value. And in the US any attempt at that needs to have a special focus on repaying the frankly inhuman systemic theft of labor value and human life ADOS have suffered under slavery, the "except as a punishment for crime" loophole in the 13th amendment, Jim Crow, New Deal redlining, the so-called "war on drugs", white supremacist takeovers of police departments... I'll stop now because this list keeps fucking going...

Short version, any Socialism worth its mission statement should view reparations to ADOS as an imperative. Any that don't are dragging around ambient systemic racism and need to correct that.

Laura Saylor - @Muhammad... I generally agree with much of what you post if not all of it other than the capitalism thing, and I'm being honest here, hoping for dialogue, how you get to the pro-capitalism view from everything else we agree on, because it's such a radical difference.

Muhammad Rasheed - Bob wrote: "You do realize, fascism is the strong arm of capitalism, right?"

I "realize" no such a thing, and quite simply do not partner with you in your anti-capitalist ideology.

Muhammad Rasheed - Laura wrote: "I, for one, support reparations and oppose capitalism and support socialism."

The point of Reparations is to close the infamous racial wealth gap, restoring the stolen inherited wealth to the black American Descendants of Slavery (ADOS). This will enable my ethnic group to successfully build up the community using capitalist principles. There may be a conflict of interest between your political support items.

Muhammad Rasheed - Brian wrote: "Any revolutionary dismantling of capitalism should..."

...immediately cease & desist. I don't want to dismantle capitalism, but instead dismantle anti-Black systemic racism and the crony corporatism tool that enables it, restore capitalism and protect the free open markets with antitrust enforcement.

Muhammad Rasheed - Laura wrote: "...how you get to the pro-capitalism view from everything else we agree on, because it's such a radical difference."

My position on the topic comes from three converging lines in my research:

1.) The Communist Party of the United States of America (CPUSA) attaching itself in the 20th century to the early anti-racism civil rights movement specifically to indoctrinate the youth with its ideology.

2.) The formal, technically structure of capitalism, how it functions, what it does, what its strengths & weaknesses actually are, and what the economic system's natural predator system is that it needs to be protected from. This is very different from the ideological description of capitalism by it's CPUSA ideological rival.

3.) The detailed history of grifter culture at the corporate level, how it functions, what it does, why the 1% favor and protect it.

All of these items combined form my pro-capitalism opinion.

Brian Jones - It feels like one of the major disconnects between us here is that you seem to be arguing for a powerful centralized state authority that theoretically will reign in the power of the capitalist class. While many others on this forums are coming from a more Anarcho-socialist perspective.

Am I getting that wrong? Because what I'm hearing you say is something akin to a plan to use electoral action to update our laws in an attempt to force the state to turn against the existing capitalist class, which you believe to be corrupt, so they can be replaced by a new capitalist class who will now do capitalism correctly under pain of punishment by the new state apparatus. If that's accurate, that's a very liberal (as in Right-wing individualism) ideal because it treats the systemic issue as a problem of the individuals at the top rather than addressing the system that allowed those individuals to exploit others.

Muhammad Rasheed - Your insisting upon vilifying the economic system instead of the greedy men who broke it, is where our disconnect is found. I see zero value in your way of seeing it, since it takes the blame away from the dirty fiends who actually commit the evil.

Majel Kay - I believe greedy men invented it. I really don't see real reparations happening under capitalism.

Muhammad Rasheed - Greedy men invented the slimy grift that usurped capitalism and cleverly convinced their rivals that capitalism was still sitting in the spot.

I don't see Reparations being paid out until #ADOS fights for it till the end.

Kyle Harrington - Actually, yes. Because I was born in a particular place I'm more familiar with the history of that place than most people born outside of it. Partly this is due to the fact that my education included British history to a larger extent than yours, partly it is because my relatives were alive in the 1920s and partly it is because the living history is all around me, including old textile mills, musuems and the like.

And things were not good for working class people in early stage capitalism. City populations expanded and this meant disease and longer hours in more dangerous working conditions. The 1800s were not a golden age for most working class people.

Also, it seems like you want to have your cake and eat it. Do governments protect free trade or do they create monopolies? They can't do both.

Brian Jones - M. Rasheed wrote: "The problems began, in the usual fashion, when the most successful businesses partnered with the gov to selfishly close the markets with monopoly"

That didn't require partnering with the government. Monopolization happens naturally in capitalism. At the time, the only private-state partnership that was required was calling in the hard-power of the state to put down laborer organization. When the government moved to break up monopolies it took capitalism only a few decades to reclaim that new threat leading to the new version of monopolies where it's a single chain of individual corporations owned by parent corporations, none of which count as monopolies, but which control even larger swaths of the market than before for the benefit of those private owners at the top of the chain. Capitalist theory likes to say that competition will benefit the consumer, but in praxis, since profitability is the only end goal of private ownership, competition simply innovates newer and more effective ways to exploit labor and consumers to give less wages and product in exchange for more capital intake. Which directly leads to the consolidation of available capital into a smaller and smaller group while imposing wider and wider exploitation and debt on the rest of the population.

Muhammad Rasheed - Brian wrote: "That didn't require partnering with the government. Monopolization happens naturally in capitalism."

That's 100% not true. If they don't fraudulently partner with the gov to overlook the enforcement of antitrust, then there will be nothing to keep other entrepreneurs from disrupting the monopoly attempt from the free market righting itself with regular old price adjustment, or innovative marketing, etc.(see: Dell vs IBM).

Brian wrote: "At the time, the only private-state partnership that was required was calling in the hard-power of the state to..."

So you contradicted your own comment just one sentence later? lol

You don't have an argument, Brian. Stop.

Brian wrote: "...competition simply innovates newer and more effective ways to exploit labor and consumers to give less wages and product in exchange for more capital intake."

As long as the gov continues to enforce antitrust and prevents the larger companies from monopolizing the industry, then the normal competition benefits the smaller companies AND the consumer class. I can not only always take my money elsewhere, but I can also always just go to another employer who ISN'T exploiting the workers.

So you think you magically know a topic and don’t have to actually study the principles and terms for how they actually work. You can just make up stuff and reinforce misconceptions and ideological myths by only interacting with people who think exactly like you. Curious.

Kyle wrote: “And things were not good for working class people in early stage capitalism.”

Sure they were. Especially since it didn’t take long from the larger companies to IMMEDIATELY start monopolizing the markets preventing others from creating better working conditions and wages to compete.

Kyle wrote: “City populations expanded and this meant disease and longer hours in more dangerous working conditions. The 1800s were not a golden age for most working class people.”

Working out normal growth problems comes with every large enterprise innovation. You don’t think that wouldn’t be an inherent problem under other economic systems involving large population centers of humans?

Kyle wrote: “Also, it seems like you want to have your cake and eat it. Do governments protect free trade or do they create monopolies? They can't do both.”

This is an example of what it sounds like when a person thinks they can magically learn about a topic just by spinning in a circle in the middle of their town and drinking with their mates at the corner pub. lol

It’s the government’s job to protect the open free markets from the threat of monopoly. Greed-fueled, unscrupulous government officials are in turn vulnerable to corruption in the usual fashion causing the gov to neglect its duties (see: FCC vs Net Neutrality; FCC vs Charter Communication mergers).

Brian Jones - Okay, so instead of just saying "you are all wrong, capitalism is actually good and it's just the people at the top of the system that are bad" why don't you take some time to explain your side here. You're in a leftist space pushing a right wing neo-liberal line about changing who's on top so that real capitalism can flourish. I hear enough of that in Georgia from Republicans who can't wait to see "the [Hollywood Globalist Elite] get theirs from Trump" so that "Real Americans" can finally flourish.

What makes you think that removing the current 1% from a system that lead to their creation won't just result in the inevitable creation of a brand new 1% that will do the exact same thing?

Bob Heather - @Muhammad... ok, bootlicker

Muhammad Rasheed - Brian wrote: "...why don't you take some time to explain your side here."

lol I'm literally doing that throughout these thread discussions, Brian.

Brian wrote: "You're in a leftist space pushing a right wing neo-liberal line about changing who's on top so that real capitalism can flourish...."

"Changing who's on top" is a straw man. My argument is that there's nothing inherently wrong with the economic system itself. The problem are the immoral, unethical individuals who come to the table to do capitalist business... they bring their corruption with them to that table and its why the laws are in place to guard society from the criminal class. We protect our own systems by holding the gov we elect accountable.

Brian wrote: "What makes you think that removing the current 1% from a system that lead to their creation won't just result in the inevitable creation of a brand new 1% that will do the exact same thing?"

1.) Of COURSE the exact same legacy families will try to maneuver their way back into the power position. That's why its the government's job to guard the system to keep that from happening.

2.) What makes YOU think the 1% won't take over your precious socialist or communist utopia in a perfect imitation of the Animal Farm novel?

Brian Jones - 1) Are you arguing for using hard state power to determine who is and isn't allowed to participate in a "free and open market" based on your perception of their motives? How much someone is actually allowed to succeed?

2) Utopianism assumes that the revolution stops. Continual revolution requires understating capitalist recuperation of existing revolutionary structures and being able to adapt to that and to better understandings of human needs and environmental limits. So I don't think many people here assume that the 1% aren't going to try it. They recuperate everything they're allowed to (see how the Civil Right's movement of the 60's is now treated as if it happened by "working with the system"). Also most here lean more an-com rather than state-com meaning that the idea of an unjustified hierarchy to sit on the top of as the "Head of the Revolutionary State and Party" is not really up our alley. If someone is in a position of authority they should be there democratically and under scrutiny to ensure they uphold the public trust.

Muhammad Rasheed - Brian wrote: "How much someone is actually allowed to succeed? [...] If someone is in a position of authority they should be there democratically and under scrutiny to ensure they uphold the public trust."

The 1% grifter class is the very definition of the "absolute power corrupts absolutely" and it is their hoarded wealth that gives them that corrupt power. 1% of the population controls 99% of the world's wealth and they will not leave that money on the table and just walk away just because we talk our ideological positions out into the æther. All of the world's problems throughout history can be traced to the greed-fueled manipulations of this moneyed class. It does NONE of us any good to allow individuals and/or corporations to amass the equivalent wealth of an entire sovereign nation; history has shown that such situations only make society worse. if we don't put a cap on how much wealth folk can amass through these business efforts, then they will do literally any and everything to position themselves to get more and more and more and more until they finally enslave us all.
