Buddy…We all are capitalists!

7 Dec

WTF is socialism? Oh yaa…(I had to
open 10th std. Civics book to find the definition), but I am not going to waste my time quoting it, rather send you here.
Do I hate socialism, I dont know but yes I would have loved it if Jessica Alba would have been in Red brigade, and Peta would have been under some Red agenda( I hope you understand). By the way, do you consider your self a socialist kind of person or a capitalist kind of person? I on record, yes on record consider myself a CAPITALIST kind of person.

I have my own reasons for it, prominently there are two, first being, I hate giving my ice cream to others, second I like to eat ice creams on another’s money. These are two fundamental rules of capitalism, told no where. Enjoy your profits, try not to invest your money. Socialism is all skewed, if I would have been socialist then, I would not be eating ice cream on first part since I can not avail it for few beggars who roam outside Ice cream parlor, second, if I had to eat one, then I had to invest my money, and try that it should be enough for everyone around. So I using few ounce of my brain fluid have come to conclusion that ‘I am capitalist’. Human, though we can fight over it is an animal( few of my friends do not agree over it…they want to put ‘social’ before animal) we survived for such a long time because we fought for our food from the animals which were much stronger than us, from nature which was most of the time against us. We are still same, though now we call us civilized, and under this pressure of being civilized we pegged social before animal. All the great discoveries (off the record) were made for cynical reasons, and not for some social reasons. To make social discoveries and inventions
you have to be a really great person, which by nature we are not. But to be popular you have to have an social agenda behind your innovation…now you have got two options, first become a great person and then make a social innovation, second, be a normal person, make a capitalist discovery and prove it that it is was social concern which
prompted you for that discovery/invention/innovation, which by far is the easiest way.

This whole world is a part of some or the other kind of pyramid, where you eat (both real and virtual) someone and someone eats you, and still few people wants to prove that socialism is basic property of humanity, bull ****. Some may argue that, its capitalism, due to which we are facing various demons of this modern era, like Global Warming, AIDS,
Poverty and etc etc…I say NO its all because of what so ever amount of socialism percolated in our society. If it would have been (PURE)capitalism, then after creating lots and lots pollution, one would have not bothered to clean it up and would have left the place itself and would have given nature a chance to clean itself, but under socialism, you stick to the place citing social reasons, and try to do the job which you are totally unfit to do. AIDS can only be solved by the arms of capitalism, let the big companies make the vaccines, and then if they dont get ready to give you for cheap, ban them, which
company in its normal mind would like to be out of a nation which have a ever growing population of HIV infected population.

Raam, on the beach of Rameshwaram, tried to be social, wasted his time, and finally resorted to capitalism…Capital Punishment…it worked.
To sum it all, one must use socialism as a tool of capitalism rather than something which is against capitalism. In ice cream analogy, spend some money on ice cream, eat it in front of poor, and inspire them (if any such thing happens) to have that ice cream, inspire them to use this capitalist world and get their very own cup of ice cream.

Ice cream for everyone…

    there is only one animal that is a born critic and that animal is man. he creats his ideologies and when they fail to prove future emancipation…he himself proves them wrong…and thats what we have been doing past twenty years or rather must say since the russian civil war started…socialism and capitalism are the two ends of a single tree…without one the other wont survive…hell knows why we have been hammering our brains since so long to prove them two different issues….
    though ur blog was on lighter note…..to get more of capitalism ….read exodus by leon uris
    a nice food for thought!
