Surprise: Warmist Economist Wants To Totally Change Capitalist Economic System

Funny how so many Warmists want to get rid of capitalismn to achieve their cultish goals. They never quite want to say what they want to replace it with, though, just that they hate capitalism, as they use their smartphones, tablets, and computers while wearing their mass produced clothes from around the world eating their avocado toast sipping on over-priced coffee

Opinion: What Trump and Mnuchin understand: Climate-change denial is the only authentic defense of our absurd capitalist ideology

Steven Mnuchin, President Donald Trump’s treasury secretary, outraged liberal commentators at this year’s World Economic Forum meeting in Davos with a snide remark directed at teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg. (snip)

I, too, could not contain myself after Mnuchin’s Davos remark. I tweeted this:

See, he’s not real happy with capitalism

But Trump and his cabal appear to understand something that their liberal detractors do not: One cannot acknowledge the perils of climate change, commit to doing whatever it takes to reverse it, and continue to think of capitalism as a natural system that can be tweaked to deliver shared, green prosperity.

Trump gets it: climate change is capitalism’s Waterloo. There is simply no feasible path toward the re-stabilization of the climate that is consistent with the maintenance of capitalism’s main pillars.

The system we live in, unlike the one implied by college economics textbooks, turns on a pathological dynamic recycling mechanism: Oligopolies extract exhaustible value from humans and nature at breakneck speed, financed by debt-turbocharged financialization, which in turn fuels the extractive oligopolies.

and

Uncouth and disagreeable, Trumpism is nonetheless an honest manifestation of the historic moment when late capitalism pushed humanity past the point of no return. Trump urges us to carry on, while Mnuchin suggests that Thunberg numb her soul with the opium of mainstream economics.

The only alternative to their policy of accelerated climate change, to the oil and finance curses that drive capitalism, is the wholesale disintegration of today’s technostructure. Do we have the stomach for it?

So, he wants to change the entire system, but, too what? Warmists just don’t usually like to say that they want the Central Government in charge.

    Destroying capitalism and thereby America has always been what MMCC has been about. That’s why the entire worldwide radical left, socialists, communists etc. buy into it. And that’s why none of us will ever believe it until it’s disengaged from politics and economics. And that’s why telling a cultist 1.5 degrees of warming is not a “people are dying” event, Ebola is or Corona virus is but not the tiny effect we have on earth.

    Trump 2020 Because the least patriotic people are leftists. Don’t be a leftist.

      Libs and Dems have the objective of having capitalism serve ALL Americans, not just the wealthy. The realization by real America that our economic system rewards the wealthy at the expense of the working classes propelled the candidacies of tRump and Sanders. Senator Sanders actually had plans to start shifting the economic inequality in our system, tRump promised and lied.

      It’s not surprising that tRump and his warriors frighten Americas by calling every Dem a communist. America’s wealthy (the true GOP base) need the acquiescence of the working classes to continue their dominance. tRump’s plan was to generate and harness the victimhood of working class whites, with promises of a Pax Americana where the white working classes once again had dominion and the return of good paying middle class jobs, especially a manufacturing resurgence. He cut taxes (tilted to the wealthy and corporations, of course), ballooned the deficit, using the Keynesian method to stimulate the economy, which has now had 10 years of steady growth!

      2020: Don’t be a tRumpist.

    Teach seems to ge ok with the elites getting most of the money and the rest just accepting being taken advantage of
    How about more tax cuts for the elites, Teach ?

    • formwiz says:

      Considering how well the “working classes” are doing after 8 years of Socialist neglect and incompetence, sounds like a grand idea.

    • You mean like Sanders, Warren, Biden, and Bloomberg? Which one of those old rich white people will you be electing to rule over you?
