A strategy to gain power over the masses and exploit them until driving them into the ground.
Selected quotes from the book.
I. Background & Natural tendency towards socialism
By using von Sociall Tactic (The great ideals of socialism):
By using the eternal law of cementing the group:
The triggers for seizing power:
Elimination of private property - the socialization of the basic means of production. Liquidation of capitalists.
Replacing the mechanism for disaster regulation, consciously planning the management of the social economy.
The vast concentration of power in the hands of managers and planning authorities. All means of existence and life, both material and spiritual, are planned, managed from the top.
Price and profit as automatic controls and criteria of economic efficiency are losing their importance. They became derivatives of the central plan.
The automatic and relatively flexible impact of consumers on producers by supply, demand and free market converts into rigid, planned price and value.
Incompatibility of central planning with individual, unpredictable, actions of millions of people.
Limiting the individual actions of millions of people to only those that are consistent with the plan - the suppression of creative society initiatives.
Salary as an equivalent to work done loses its meaning, as the plan which previously specified its amount is separated from a specific effort spent by an individual employee.
Exceptionally reduced performance of the national economy as a result of the suppression of the creative initiative of society and the loss of socially objective performance criteria (price, profit, demand, supply), as well as the inevitable end product of vast bureaucracy in everything related to production in the country.
Concealed (hidden) bankruptcy of companies – subsidies granted.
Concealed unemployment - there are more employees than is necessary for the effective performance of the job.
Concealed and overt inflation.
Constant decline of living standards.Constant decline of spiritual life, leading to primitivism.
The inability to compete with capitalism peacefully.
The emergence and rapid growth of social discontent.
Monopoly of foreign trade. Economic isolation.
Hiding the real situation in the country from society: totalitarian monopoly and censorship on all information and the media. Whitewash. Hypertrophy of secrecy
The creation of a totalitarian system of education and upbringing of every citizen from birth until death. Banning other views than those which are completely conformist
The rapid development of the authority of the secret police and their penetration into all spheres of social life.
Closing borders. A huge increase in the power of the army.
Terror and intimidation.
Deprivation of all human rights and freedoms.
Complete tracking. The creation of a totalitarian system of secret documents on the situations and the activities of every citizen, from birth until death.
The breakdown of the solidarity of the masses by fuelling discord based on differences: administrative, property, racial, religious, educational, etc.
Spreading of all rumours, illusion and hope: to improve lives, liberalization, etc.
System exhausted all available resources and ceases to function
Desperate attempts to find a way out without losing power, i.e. without changing the system.
Misappropriation and sale of natural resources (even selling the citizens as virtual slaves) to exploit the capitalists to keep lowering the standard of living of "socialists".
Playing games with the capitalists as a counterbalance to internal dissatisfaction.
Search for weak points in the capitalist system to plunder new territories and people.
A further increase in the strength of the army and the secret police.
Penetration of dissatisfaction within the system in all levels of society, including the structures of power such as the army, the secret police, State Planning Commission and even the government.
The gradual decrease in the number of obedient performers, until the disappearance of the feasibility of significant repression for disobedience.
The emergence of a minute positivity, merging programmes and changing distribution systems.
The increase of chaos and confusion.
The struggle for power and the emergence of system "gravediggers" - new people taking over power, agreeing on its partial dismantling (complete dismantling will naturally occur in the future [temporarily, because socialism will naturally come back when the resources will be abundant - JF]) in order to gain the support of influential circles of society.
The inevitable (but perhaps not too swift) death of the system, which could be dismissed in time to get "large bites of capitalism" if the opportunity arose.
Social conditions for production
|in a governmental interventionism||in a free market|
|vertical structures - hierarchy and subordination||horizontal structures - self-organizing goal-oriented teams|
|the boss is lord and master||the head is the guardian of the principles of cooperation|
|the struggle for higher and better-paid positions||compulsion to increase labour productivity and inventing new things which can be sold|
|lack of care for productivity and labor costs - just in case the state intervenes||close eye on productivity and labour costs - because the free market eliminates bad producers|
|priority to state, mainly heavy, industry (employment and means for aggression)||priority to pro-consumer industry|
|domination of production over the services||domination of services over production|
|work conditions become military-like imposing constraints and procedures on employees||decentralized work conditions that focuses responsibility onto the employees|
|no motivation for self-improvement (trainings are a way to avoid work)||motivation for self-improvement (people want to learn even at their own expense)|
|template work||individualized work|
|mass production||pursuant programmes of production|
|natural tendency to create pointless jobs for people||natural tendency to automate the labour|
|rigid centralized management||pursuant and distributed management|
