The Profit Men Who Control The West
You cannot make sense of the decline of the West unless you understand the people who control it. In this piece we shine a floodlight on them.
You cannot make sense of the decline of the West unless you understand the people who control it, and more specifically, what they believe in.
Clarity is power: it focuses the mind; it can inspire concrete and effective action. Unfortunately however, when it comes to this subject, clarity is one thing many lack. People may see different pieces of the puzzle, but not understand how they fit together. Or they may buy into and promote sensationalist theories, which immediately discredits them (even if there’s some truth to what they’re saying). Or they may immerse themselves in an academic study of power that leads them down a rabbit hole of endless theory - and theory is a poor substitute for reality.
We must move beyond these and other methods of dealing with this subject, for if we can’t grasp who our enemies truly are - and what drives them - then we will fail to defeat them. As the general and philosopher Sun Tzu said in the Art of War: we must know our enemy. It is the aim of this piece then to put the pieces of the puzzle together in a clear, concise, and no BS way. In it we will shine a floodlight on one of our biggest enemies: the profit men who control the West.
The Ideology of the Profit Men
You will recognise who the profit men are simply by their ideology. Firstly, their ideology is secular. There is no room for god or religion in it.
Secondly, their ideology replaces a higher being with something else, which they believe is just as noble and compelling, and that is profit.
The profit men worship at the altar of profit.
Now what I’ve just said can be easily misunderstood, particularly by advocates of so called Free Markets and Capitalism, so I’m going to explain what I mean and by the end of this it will be evident that this ideology explains a lot of what we see happening in the West today including: the rise of the woke, low fertility rates, mass immigration, enthusiasm for war, and more.
Let’s begin though by taking a look at how profit is defined. According to Investopedia, ‘Profit describes the financial benefit realised when revenue generated from a business activity exceeds the expenses, costs, and taxes involved in sustaining the activity in question. Any profits earned funnel back to business owners, who choose to either pocket the cash, distribute it to shareholders as dividends, or reinvest it back into the business.’
That’s a pretty standard and uncontroversial definition of it. What we’re more interested in though is in what this means in the real world. The pursuit of profit, by its very nature, is a) self-interested, and b) amoral.
Self-interested means an individual or group of individuals seek it for their personal benefit, whether it be for accruing power, wealth, and influence, or attaining pleasure, security, or comfort.
Amoral means the holy text that these self-interested individuals worship, and where profit lives, is the Profit & Loss Statement (or Income Statement) - a text that does not care for values, morals, truth, or justice - but only cares for how much profit was generated during the period in question (the more the better).
Now, there are the two broad ways to perceive this ideology or system. The first is that it’s positive. The story that underpins this view goes as follows:
Profit incentivises people to act in their own self-interest, yes, but the act of serving their self-interest benefits others. Through the profit seeker’s enterprise, people are employed, and products and services are produced and delivered that other enterprises and people want or need. The profit seeker's enterprise also procures products and services from other enterprises, who in turn employ people. All these employees spend their money on the products and services they want or need, which in turn flows to enterprises who employ people. The profit seekers do likewise, but also invest their money into new or different enterprises, which feeds further into this system (employees invest too, only through their pensions). The competition between enterprises encourages innovation, which in turn leads to better products and services, which means better outcomes for the enterprises and people who procure these products and services, and on it goes in a virtuous circle. So far so good; the invisible hand at work.
Now let's look at it from the second perspective.
Profit is the north star. It’s what CEO’s fret over, what investors care about, what analysts look at. For a company to be successful we are told, it must focus solely on generating consistent profit and not on any external and unrelated goals that might distract from this - like fulfilling some moral purpose, or serving the community, or bettering society. These things are irrelevant and not baked into the holy text that is the Profit and Loss statement. Of course if it happens to be that an enterprise is selling a product or service that delivers these things, then great, but it’s not necessarily the point. The ideology and system itself is about delivering profit.
There are 2 key challenges with this:
1- Large enterprises, or groups of enterprises, because of the huge profits they generate gain enormous power and influence in our society that dwarfs the power and influence of any individual to the point of making the individual insignificant.
2- As we’ve already covered, these entities are self-interested and amoral - by design.
So what happens when you mix enormous and outsized power and influence with self-interest and amorality? Well, in addition to creating beneficial outcomes, you also create highly immoral and destructive outcomes whose impact is felt society-wide, and indeed, worldwide. Let’s look at some examples of where it goes wrong.
Enterprises in this space produce useful medications like antibiotics, and awful ones like anti-depressants. For example, there are tens of millions of people on anti-depressants across the US, Canada, and Europe. This includes kids as young as five. These numbers are also growing steadily year by year. Yet somehow for the entirety of human history we did without these pills and were fine. It just so happened that in the latter part of the 20th century, researchers, academics, and enterprise innovated a new problem, or one could say a new market (that being depression) as well as a magical solution to that problem (anti-depressants), which has proven to be one of the greatest corporate success stories of the past 50 years.
It’s interesting that our ancestors whose lives were significantly tougher than ours, and filled with more hardship than we could ever know, were able to deal with challenges in life with resilience and faith, but today despite having access to these same resources and indeed more (like all kinds of non-drug based therapy), as well as high levels of personal comfort and security, many end up on pills. I’ve no doubt that our ancestors knew, perhaps through necessity, not to make a mountain out of a molehill - like if you feel bad about something it doesn’t mean your next step is permanent depression, but many today act as if it is.
This isn’t helped by the incentives pharmaceutical companies operate under. Do you think they want to reduce the number of people on anti-depressants? Of course not. Their primary goal is profit. The more people taking these the better. Not only more people, but ideally making these people lifetime customers: repeat business is the holy grail of business.
So what would you do if you wanted to grow sales and thus profits? You’d convince more people they have depression (perhaps lower the bar for a diagnosis), partner with medical professionals to shift more of your product, sponsor research that favours your proposition, maybe even upsell existing customers with pills for other supposed ailments - and indeed all of this and more we see happening. Are pharmaceutical enterprises doing something wrong? No. They are doing what they’re designed to do. They are doing a great job. Kudos to them. But their private profit comes at a high cost of creating an increasingly weak and sick people and society.
As an aside, we see in real-time today how they have built up, and are continuing to build up the market for the vax that supposedly protects against our favourite number 19 virus.
Let’s look at another example: Oil.
Families today are being squeezed when it comes to the cost of living, and fuel prices have contributed to the problem. Of course it’s beyond the control of the oil companies and they’re sharing the burden too in these difficult economic times. They may not be making as much profit as usual but at least they’re staying afloat.
Ah, hang on a minute, that’s not what’s happening. Whilst everyone is being squeezed, these companies are recording their highest profits in decades, and for many, highest of all time. Interesting that, but again they’re doing nothing wrong. Their holy text states that their goal is to make profit, as much as possible, so they’re staying true to their purpose. Of course people are struggling, but the extra money is better in the pocket of oil companies than in the pocket of ordinary citizens. How much more are they pocketing? Here are some figures from 2022:
ExxonMobil’s 3rd quarter profits were $19.7 billion dollars - a record.
Chevron’s 2nd quarter profits were $11.62 billion dollars - a record.
Shell’s 2nd quarter profits were $11.5 billion dollars - a record. And it’s much the same story with the other major oil companies.
It seems that as their private profit increases, public pain increases. But who said we were all in this together.
Let’s look at another example: Food.
It’s ironic that in the most prosperous period in human history our food is the worst in human history. Ironic too that we have the highest incidence of lifestyle diseases in history, of which the food we eat is a major contributor. Do you think enterprises in the food space are prioritising our health or do they think they’re prioritising profit? You already know the answer, and if you don’t then walk into any supermarket or convenience store, pick up a random food item and read the list of ingredients on the glossy packaging. Tell me if the myriad of artificial ingredients are primarily there for your benefit or the food company’s benefit.
How food companies today grow, prepare, and process food is based first and foremost on the profit and loss statement. Their aim is to make food as fast and as cheaply as possible, to make the food look good, smell good, taste good, last longer, and if possible to get you hooked on the food. Their aim is not for the food to be good. Actually making it good would run contrary to the goal of making the most profit.
The outcome is that in the West we are woefully unhealthy. Lifestyle diseases like heart disease, preventable cancer, stroke, lung disease, and liver disease are prevalent. Does this matter to food and beverage companies? No. It’s not their job to think about health and wellbeing. Their job is to make profit, and they do it very well.
Let’s take a look at another example: Pornography.
This product, although in theory appearing harmless, is actually quite harmful. In an age where the family is under attack, society is being feminised, and fertility rates are low, porn only makes things worse. Firstly, it gives single guys an easy way out - dampening the motivation to find a partner or to improve themselves (in order to increase their chances of finding a partner). For those in a relationship or marriage, it can get in the way of intimate relations with their partner. It also reframes sex in a purely consumerist mould, as opposed to it being about producing offspring. And it can lead to an unhealthy and costly addiction.
For enterprises in this space, this all means profit. Lots of it. Every guy who chooses porn over seeking a real life partner equals profit. Every guy who chooses porn over their existing partner equals profit. Every guy who sees sex as a product to be bought equals profit. Every addict equals profit.
When so many things are eroding manhood in society, this is just one more thing to add to the list. Yes, men willingly watch it, but it’s for the same reason people indulge in sugary foods - we’re genetically programmed to do so. In the case of sex, it’s to pass on our genes, in the case of sugar, it’s to survive in conditions where food is scarce. In the modern consumerist world however, man’s natural instincts backfire and can be exploited by profit seekers like those in the porn industry.
Let’s take a look at one final example, because as you’re probably sensing, this list could go on indefinitely otherwise.
Here we find the ultimate disciples of the profit ideology. Here, enormous power, wealth, and influence are concentrated in entities that have no qualms in using their position to make as much profit as possible.
Consider the global financial crisis of 2007-2008. There were of course many players involved in this fiasco, including government, borrowers, and credit rating agencies, but financial institutions played a major role in it and for the years leading up to the crisis were making a fortune. They did this by engaging in weak or fraudulent lending practices, over leveraging themselves, creating and selling complex and murky financial products like mortgage backed securities and credit default swaps, and chasing high returns.
Whilst they undertook these high risk but very lucrative activities, the risks they posed to the economy and society if things went wrong were of no concern to them. Their focus was on quarterly profits and bonuses. Most of us know how that turned out. They made their profits, and when things turned bad, we, the taxpayers, ended up bailing them out. Not only that, millions of people lost their jobs, businesses, and homes.
So this is a snapshot of the profit system and profit men at work. Profit comes first, nothing comes second.
And these are examples of profit men who adhere to the law (because to do otherwise would jeopardise their ongoing profits). But there are many instances where breaking the law is more profitable, and it’s in these cases where we get an even better glimpse at the hearts and souls of profit men. Think about drug cartels, human traffickers, the mafia, fraud and scam operators, organ harvesters, and the list goes on. To you they are evil people, but they don’t see themselves that way. They see themselves as businesspeople, as entrepreneurs. They see a lucrative market, they see the opportunity to make large profits, and they operate on the principles of the profit and loss statement. They don’t take into account the human or societal toll or what’s moral or right - they focus on profit.
If a drug cartel tortures and executes innocent people who oppose them (or who happen to get in their way) or does likewise to those working for competitors, its justified because they subscribe to an ideology that is self-interested and amoral: “So what if these people suffer and die? It’s just business.”
As for their end customers - if they die after consuming their product, or if they ruin their lives or wreck the lives of others around them because of it, that’s neither here nor there. The profit men will just find other customers to profit from.
Whether legal or illegal then it should hopefully be clear that making profit your god, and nothing else, can lead to good results (because people are creative, innovative, and smart and can come up with useful solutions to make a buck), but also can lead to terrible results - because there is no in-built moral compass in this ideology/system, and because the laws in many situations are not sufficient, i.e. they do not impose moral directives on profit men or their entities.
But all this is just the tip of the iceberg. To understand how pernicious these profit men and their ideology can be, let’s now look at how they have lead us to many of the things we oppose, like the rise of the Woke, multiculturalism, mass immigration, low fertility rates, the breakdown of families, and the feeling many people today have that their governments serve transnational interests that run contrary to their own.
Overcoming Barriers to Profit
We’ve explored how the pursuit of profit is self-interested and amoral, but there are other properties it possesses too, namely, it is expansionary and seeks to control power.
Expansionary means the profit men and their enterprises must enter more and more areas of our lives and society because the more they do, the more profit there is to be made. They do this to the point where they successfully reshape the individual into a new identity: that of the consumer, and reshape society into one giant marketplace.
Expansionary also means they will go wherever there is profit to be made - the more places the better - hence they have no loyalty to individual nations, and are trans-nationalist or globalist in nature.
As for seeking to control power, it means whilst they may not seek to actually run society, for that is a messy and dirty job and moreover would expose the power behind the throne, they do seek to control major power centres in society of which the most prominent is government. In doing so they neutralise, as far as is reasonably possible, any threats to their expansionary pursuit of profit, and more than that ensure that society is run in a way that serves their interests. This doesn’t mean it always works out for them, but it works good enough.
So how does this tie into the problems we see in society today? Well, let’s take a look.
Firstly, do you find it curious that profit men whose ideology is amoral, have embraced and promoted the woke, whose ideology is highly moral? (A twisted and evil morality of course.) Well, this stems from the expansionary nature of profit. Naturally, when expanding, they’re going to encounter obstacles or barriers to their expansion. This could be borders, culture, religion, nationalist movements or leaders, and more. In the woke, they have found a partner that can help to demolish some of these barriers. For example, the profit men see the majority of people as serving two purposes only: 1) As workers that help them generate profit, and 2) As consumers that purchase their products and services, thus generating them profit. So naturally the bigger the population size, and the faster it grows, the better. But native western populations aren’t able to keep up with the demands of profit men for ever more workers and consumers, so the profit men need to source them from somewhere - and that somewhere is from non Western countries (where there’s a multitude of people keen or desperate to leave their native homelands).
The profit men of course partner with governments to ensure the borders remain open and immigration remains high and consistent, but that’s not enough. They also need an ideology that justifies this immigration to the native population and shuts down anyone who questions the wisdom of it. Enter the Woke, or Progressives, or Cultural Marxists (or whatever you want to call them) who have sold us on the idea that the West is a) multicultural, and b) that multiculturalism and diversity is our strength. Both of these tenets are false, but question them and the woke will seek to discredit and destroy you. This is a great way for the profit men to enforce their own ideology, which demands high immigration, without getting their hands dirty.
Or consider women in the workforce. The profit men have embraced the concept of turning the remaining 50% of the adult population into full-time worker bees. The woke have helped them by pushing the victim narrative that women are oppressed by men, that anything a man can do a woman can and should do, and that it’s disempowering to women if they can’t act like men in business suits or uniforms and work 10-16 hours a day. This all comes at the expense of fertility, because women who prioritise their career tend to have few or no children. Serving the profit system and getting fancy titles and a paycheck becomes equally or even more important than bringing the next generation into existence.
Even apart from that, in helping individuals reach their final form - that of the consumer - the profit men create a people who value convenience, comfort, and self and instant gratification above all else. These values do not lend themselves to people having as many children, because raising children - as any parent knows - delivers the opposite of these things. So when faced with a choice between the consumer lifestyle and having kids, an increasing number choose the former.
None of this is a problem though because any gaps in population can be plugged easily with endless immigration.
But there’s more. The consumer’s traits start to impact relationships and marriages too. The consumer who expects their whims and desires to be met perfectly (and instantly), is more prone to enter a relationship too quick or exit it too quick. There’s less patience or resilience for the inevitable ups and downs, particularly when you have so many options out there - just like online shopping.
Or consider religion, traditions, or political systems that say the individual is not a consumer, but a citizen, or fellow countrymen, or community member, or has a duty to a higher collective purpose or power. This presents not just competition to the profit men and their system, where everyone is viewed through the prism of worker and consumer, but it also poses the biggest threat to it. Today’s profit men above all else fear nationalist movements and leaders who put their country, culture, and people first. So they seek to demonise and discredit them - again through the help of the Woke who do the work of making such people out to be evil and revolting bigots and psychopaths, but also through the help of the media (which the profit men conveniently own, and the woke run). Even the so called conservative media is beholden to the profit men, and still believe the profit system is the best thing for society despite it working 24/7 to undermine the supposed conservative or traditional values they claim to hold. This is either wilful or naive ignorance on their part, or just a sign that they are bereft of ideas and lack an answer to the problem.
On the nationalist point, you may have noticed the vigour with which the establishment has gone about trying to cancel Russia - both the profit men and the woke have been united on this. My personal view is that the situation is complicated, and whilst Ukraine isn’t part of the West and likely never will be, I think Russia had as much right to invade them as the UK would have to invade its former colony, Australia. All of this aside, the enthusiasm for sanctions and war with Russia coming from the western establishment has more to do with not letting an opportunity go to waste. Putin is a nationalist (and he’s anti-woke); the West would love it if he could be replaced with a globalist. They would then go about introducing the same wedge of wokeism, and start to erase Russian culture as Russia becomes yet another formless multi-cultural marketplace.
One final key benefit of partnering with the woke is their ideology is highly effective at dividing people and getting them to be at each other’s throats. And when people are viciously fighting amongst themselves, they miss what’s really going on which is that their culture and nations are being demolished in the name of profit. This is textbook divide and conquer.
But what do the woke get out of all this? Power and influence, and the chance to further their own agenda.
It’s important to note that the profit men and the Woke aren’t natural allies - they’re frenemies. They’re only using each other to beat a common enemy: us. The profit men’s mistake is that their amorality and greed has led them to partner with literal or figurative demons, who have horrifying aims for society which will probably end the profit system anyway.
The wokeists’ mistake is they think the profit men actually give a shit about their insane beliefs, when all they care about is making money at any cost and will ditch the woke the moment they believe it hinders their cause.
Regardless, it really says a lot about the profit men that they are willing to leverage their enormous power and influence to promote an evil ideology like wokeism, and silence or cancel anyone who opposes it. Makes you wonder what they’d do if their spreadsheet analysis showed that 50% of humans were no longer needed to make profits.
There may also be an element of wokeism having snuck up on the profit men, and as a potential competing power centre it made sense to co-opt it in order to control it. But they are playing with fire here. Enterprises today are being conquered from within by woke employees churned out from woke indoctrination factories (also known as universities). In fact the gatekeepers to these enterprises, the guardians of their culture, and the enforcers of rules and discipline - aka the HR and Recruitment divisions - are almost exclusively woke. It’s a pre-requisite for working there. The profit men are now beginning to reap internally what they have helped sow externally.
This reminds me of a quote from Michael Moore - a man I do not like or respect in any way - but who was spot on when he said: ‘the rich man will sell you the rope to hang himself with if he thinks he can make a buck off it.’
In the end though I think that these two Batman villains partnering up has been a godsend. Yes, it’s helped the profit men overcome barriers to making more profit and has empowered the woke immeasurably, but it has also helped more people on the Right to see what the profit men and their enterprises are really about - and whose side they are really on (and it’s not ours).
But wait, I’ve forgotten government. There’s no partner like government if you want to bend society to your will. Western politicians and bureaucrats - just like celebrities - love attention, love to be liked, love to feel important, love the feeling of power, and love it when their ‘genius’ is recognised, and the professional best friends and like-minds known as lobbyists and corporate sponsored think-tanks and non-profits are experts at giving them this and more (unlike those ungrateful and demanding voters). Also, unlike voters, they can throw unlimited time and resources towards this.
There’s also the revolving door - work for the regulated one day, become regulator or policy maker the next, and vice versa. No conflict of interest there.
“Oh, and here’s a nice perk for me? Some profitable bit of intel?”
“Oh, you’ll fund my election campaign? I’m invited to the most popular restaurant in town with the who’s who?”
“Thank you. Yes, I was actually thinking your suggestions on policy make a lot of sense, I’ll see about making sure we pass this.”
“Oh and yes, I’d love to join you on the golf course this weekend.”
In short, our democratic systems in the West are ideal for profit men. They attract all the right sorts of people to govern (right for the profit men that is; wrong for us). Politicians also take the fall, are easily replaced, or are not easily replaced but are easily bought (in one way or another), and whilst not all can be won over, enough can be to ensure the profit men win in the end no matter which side is in charge.
What is the profit men’s endgame? Well, despite their support of multiculturalism, the profit men are actually monoculturalists. They believe in making their amoral culture and ideology the exclusive culture and ideology globally. The lowest hanging fruit is the West - for the ideology was born here and has gained the most traction here - but the end goal is to erase other cultures too till we become one giant, generic consumer planet serving our master: profit.
The fault in their approach is in thinking that people will give up their culture, history, and identity so easy. Just because many self-indulgent and confused Westerners have done so doesn’t mean Muslims, or Sub Saharan Africans, or Chinese, or Hindus, or Russians, or others will. Many of these cultures are becoming increasingly nationalistic and culturally assertive, so what’s more likely is that the multicultural journey will end up killing the golden goose that is the West but leave those other cultures unscathed. The profit men can then see how they get along in places like China, where the government calls all the shots and profit men must bow in obedience or else; or in India where the red tape, bureaucracy, and corruption is a nightmare; or Africa where cronyism and corruption are rampant, and the rule of law is arbitrary; or in the Muslim world where productivity rates are low, corruption is high, and bureaucracy is stifling.
And if they think the West won’t become a copy of these other parts of the world when native Westerners are a minority, then they’re not as smart as they make themselves out to be. Or perhaps they’re just blinded by greed. Or maybe they don’t care - they’ll make their play, and if it all goes wrong, it’s the profit man of the future’s problem. He can figure it out. After all, today’s profit men have got important targets to meet!
Let’s now look at what we can do about this unfortunate state of affairs.
Reform, Replace, or Reign In?
The same ideology that gives us things we value like washing machines, smartphones, and next day delivery, is also leading the assault on our culture, health, and security.
It’s easy, maybe comforting, to think that the invisible hand is a force for good - and leads to the best results for the greatest number of people. Conservatives and libertarians in particular are fond of this view. But what if it’s a mirage? What if it’s true it delivers for a time - under specific conditions - but as it expands it starts to consume its host, eventually killing both it and itself?
I know some of you think the solution is just to get rid of wokeism, limit government, and let capitalism roll on unhindered, but how is having almighty powerful enterprises that are driven by self-interest and are inherently amoral, that are pathologically expansionary and seek to control power, going to bring about the kind of society we want to see? They have lead us to the quagmire we’re in today. In its current form this ideology can only undermine our mission, and I think we can do better.
So what can we do? Well, we can start by acknowledging how beholden each of us personally is to this system. We are all products of it. We are all consumers. We all have a divided loyalty between wanting to see our society get back on track, but also wanting the convenience, comfort, and gratification provided by this system.
How do we overcome this? How do we square the circle? Well, we get clear on what our options are: Reform or Replace.
If we’re talking reform, then it could mean that enterprises adopt a revised north star, perhaps instead of ‘profit,’ it’s ‘good profit’ they must pursue. Good profit adds a moral or value dimension to the pursuit of profit, which is sorely lacking. We already know you can make profit by getting people addicted to anti-depressants and porn - well done to you - but are you doing good?
Yes, you can squeeze families all over the nation with gas or petrol prices and grow your profits dramatically, but does this meet the definition of good profit?
When you add the qualifier ‘good,’ things start to look a lot different. You can still have companies competing, innovating, growing, hiring, but it’s not a free for all of doing whatever you like to make a buck regardless of the cost to society. What I’m describing here isn’t just adding another regulation, it would mean baking into the DNA of how business is measured and operated the requirement and duty to do good. Put simply, it’s ‘make money doing good.’
What about replacing the system? Well, here’s where things get tricky. You really need to know what you’re doing if you’re planning to replace in its entirety a system that’s proven to deliver - because whilst this system is screwing us over badly with the left hand, it is delivering beneficial outcomes too with the right hand.
The Communists tried the replace strategy, and what they instituted was a disaster - making things much worse for everyone. Of course they also had the entirely wrong motivations of wanting to make everyone equal, of eliminating hierarchy, of centrally planning everything, etc, which goes against nature and common sense. But what could replacing it look like today?
Well if the current system is global in nature and outlook, then perhaps an alternative would be localism. Perhaps it becomes about smaller and leaner enterprises who have a strong vested interest in the health and prosperity of the town or city in which they operate. Key to this is being self-sufficient, so it means bringing back manufacturing, becoming energy independent, etc.
Or maybe fully or partially decentralised enterprises are the answer. They can be designed in a way that minimises abuse or ill intentions, and where transparency is a key feature.
Or maybe the concept of having a legal entity separate from the owner, which is what a corporation is, is abolished. This way you can’t have profit men hiding behind faceless corporations and paying no price for their bad behaviour.
Or it could be something completely different. These sort of things are best tested out at a smaller scale first, to see how they work in practice, rather than experimenting on entire nations and then realising it doesn’t work or needs major changes. For this reason I think the reform approach is preferred.
Lastly, there is the ‘reigning in’ option. This means leaving the amoral profit incentive intact, but having a strong single party government that keeps the profit men in line. Such a government would make it clear to the profit men their job is to serve society, and not the other way around, and would enforce this accordingly. If you want to see real life instances of profit men being subservient to the will of the state, China and Russia are good examples. Both nations also happen to be extremely nationalistic, brooking zero tolerance toward wokeism. We’re westerners of course, we have our own way of doing things, but that’s just to show the template is there.
To be clear, none of these options are going to happen under democracy. The profit men benefit from this political system and they’re not going to willingly relinquish their power and control over it - certainly not whilst they’re ahead. This also neuters the counter argument some of you might have of ‘who decides what good profit is?’ because we sure as hell will not let the woke or the profit men decide it. This is for a post-democratic system where they have no or limited say on the matter.
If you’re holding out for democracy to save you - that’s just a covert way of giving up. It means nothing changes, the profit men and the woke grow in strength, and we continue down the same path to self-destruction. We complain on the way down of course, protest here and there, vote for this or that jobber here and there, but all we do is waste time.
So, good profit is what our side says it is, because that’s the game we’re now playing. That’s how you stop this madness. You don’t work day and night, shedding blood, sweat, and tears to make sure we have a future worth living in, and then say to your enemies: “Right, how about you take over for a bit. Feel free to destroy all the work we’ve put in, devote 100% of your energy and resources into undermining us and our mission, consolidate your power while you’re at it, and in the meantime we’ll complain about you and then let’s have a contest in the future to see if we can take the reigns over from you again. Does that sound ok?”
Well, that’s stupidity. We’re way past the point where that makes any sense. It may work with smaller, culturally and ethnically homogenous populations who are devoid of any cancerous ideologies, but that’s not us today. We’re entering survival mode now - it’s no time to be playing tag.
So in summary, we have options that don’t require us to completely upend our economic system, but that enable us to cut the parts out that are harming us. We can amend what an enterprise is measured and focused on - so it’s no longer just about profit, but about ‘good profit.’ This helps to eliminate the questionable goods and services that get foisted on the population, and kills off partnerships with groups or movements that seek to harm society. Consider this an upgrade to version 2.0, which also doesn’t preclude us innovating our way to better systems in time through, amongst other things, smaller scale trials.
This is also a more sensible and holistic way of viewing the economy and all the players in it. Yes, there’s competition, yes there’s positive disruption, but there’s also a sense of it all serving a greater united vision and purpose. We aren’t working against ourselves - not taking one step forward in one area, and one step back in another. And certainly we aren’t tolerating or promoting colossal aberrations where power and control is concentrated in the hands of an amoral few, who use it to subvert society to their self-interested ends. That must end.
The profit men are not our friends. They use their immense power to undermine our nations and culture, they partner with the adherents of an evil ideology who cause serious damage to our society, and they capture the weak, corrupt, and incompetent people that govern us. They feel bad about none of this. We are just a stepping stone on their path to profit.
We and our descendants deserve better than being turned into mindless, androgynous consumers devoid of any meaningful identity, culture, or values. We have a far greater destiny and mission to fulfil.
When our business leaders, culture, and government no longer serve us but instead threaten our existence, then we know what needs to be done. It might not happen today, but it must happen tomorrow. Until then, we remain under occupation.
