So what we see is that it’s not capitalism vs socialism, it’s reciprocity vs parasitism. Law’s job is to suppress all forms of parasitism and thus enforce natural law of reciprocity. In my other vids on Propertarianism I’ve explained the basics of how we can write/design our rule of law to do that better than we do today. But Why is it that enforcing reciprocity (eliminating parasitism) produces wealth and high quality of life?
It’s Sovereignty, Reciprocity, Non Parasitism, Rule of Law, suppression of demand for authority. (PACK) VS Equality, Proportionality, Parasitism, Rule by Discretion, Demand for authority.(HERD)
So yes, the capitalism vs socialism is a false dichotomy that is perhaps the best persistent example of using pilpul and critique to present a straw man argument when all economies must be mixed because defense of the private for the purpose of consumption and the common for the purpose of preservation are two very different things requiring two different kinds of enforcement. We must have markets for association, cooperation, production, reproduction, commons, elites and their strategies, and polities. Because markets calculate the unknown. Its only backward organizations that can use authority for short periods to adapt (transform) to a new technology using a novel set of incentives. This is the value of executive and states: to reorganize incentives that have calcified.
Answering the WHY IS IT…?
Question is just (a) we make time through divisions of labor (b) we make more time the faster we identify and capture opportunities. (c.) for increasingly complex goods, services, and information, we produce longer more complex production cycles with more opportunities along the chain, in to more and more organizations in sustainable networks of specialization and trade.
We are calculating a way of defeating the dark forces of time and ignorance in a window of opportunity between catastrophic events on a plant that has had a set of what I suspect are rare coincidences. Western man uses maneuver – ooda loops- to move faster than others. That’s it. And law, and markets in all aspects of life favor evolution, eugenics, and prosperity as a method of competitive advantage. And the weak spot in our civilization is that (a) until now it wasn’t codified in a sort of bible of the law, and (b) our women and some portion of our men will always be vulnerable to false promises that evolution and the red queen can be ignored rather than defeated.
