In the world of the last three decades, capitalism, with its single drunken power, is destroying everything with its aggressive grip. The world and its human society are being plunged into the horrors of war, blood, death, hunger, poverty, and oppression. The political glory of capitalism has engulfed human civilization with the brutality of the ferocious octopus in the form of imperialism. The brutal trend of the monopoly power of capitalism-imperialism has been dubbed the “era of globalization” where the world is still trapped in the barbaric socio-economic-political-cultural-psychoanalytic realm of uncivilized civilization. Standing on the fallen corpses of socialism, the last nineties saw the all-powerful new-emergence of capitalism-imperialism. In just three decades, the monstrous body of capitalism has begun to stink. It is feared that capitalism will soon go dustbin of history and take its place next to the fallen corpse of socialism.
Over the past three decades, a class of Euro-American scholars has campaigned worldwide that the face of recent capitalism is ‘‘humanitarian’’ (!)
But in the last century, capitalism itself has abolished the song of their high-pitched tunes, by its own evil, by its own cruelty, by making millions of people unemployed all over the world, starving millions of people, and plunging countless men and women into the horrors of war, murder, blood, death.
According to the World Food and Agriculture Organization’s 2019 annual report on hunger, more than 820 million people worldwide have recently gone to bed hungry. The food and financial crisis has historically increased the number of hungry people worldwide. Most of these starving people live in poor countries. The most important data is that the United States, the richest country in the world, has a long history of starvation, with more than 11 million children and more than 3.37 billion people struggling with hunger.
When capitalism is attacking starving people one after another globalization then stood as an integral part of capitalism. But amid such globalization, a class of Western scholars saw ‘the lifeline of human survival’! Although nowadays, these scholars do not open their mouths on this subject. Like ‘humanitarian’ capitalism, the ‘great’ globalization has exposed the ridiculous-brokerage look of these scholars in front of the whole world.
The Director-General of the World Food and Agriculture Organization said in the nineties, “We have economic and technical means to alleviate hunger. What is missing is the political will to eradicate hunger forever. Long ago, in 1974, the then US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger made a similar statement, one of the few truths that came out of Kissinger’s mouth “The world has the power to end hunger”. Failure to do so is not a reflection of incompetence, but a reflection of a lack of political will”
Capitalism never expresses any political will without profit and business interests. Capitalism wants a natural or artificial food crisis in the world for the sake of food business and profit, it wants to see the endangered face of hungry people. As a result, the lack of political will of the capitalist world system to end hunger in the last decade has been evident. In many parts of the world, the poor have to spend most of their income on food.
[Poor and bankrupt people have not only become a feature of the Southern Hemisphere due to the exploitation of capitalism. The capitalist world system was and still is at the center of the world. The number of people dependent on food stamps in West Virginia was more than 16 percent of the total population. The highest was in the capital, Washington DC, at 16.1 percent in January 2009. A year ago, in 2008 the rate was 15.1 percent. Mississippi (15.0 percent in January 2006 and 18.6 percent in January 2009), Missouri 14.6 and 18.6 percent, Tennessee 14.5 percent and 18.6 percent, respectively, over the same period. In Idaho, the number of people dependent on food stamps increased by 32 percent in one year, and in Nevada, Utah, and Florida by about 29 percent. These figures are provided by the food and nutrition service of the United States department of agriculture.
It should be noted that one reliable way to measure poverty in the United States is through the number of people who depend on food stamps. In the last three decades, there has been no denying the existence of two groups of very poor people in the United States, namely, ‘Food Insecure’ and ‘Very Low Food Insecure’. These people did not have the money or debts to buy the number of calories needed to survive in capitalism. In Texas alone, the number of people relying on food stamps was 3 million. About 32 million Americans received food stamps across the United States. It is estimated that at least one million more people in the United States do not receive food stamps, even though they need them.]
What was the situation in poor countries as compared to the rich countries in this omnivorous situation of capitalism in the age of globalization? The globalized human face of poverty and starvation has been seen all over the world in the wake of wars, droughts, epidemics, and various disasters caused by imperialism-capitalism. Even the United Kingdom, the main ally of capitalism-imperialism, didn’t get the exemption. Every year, one in 60 peoples in the United Kingdom becomes indigent.
When capital faces a bad situation, so does the pressure on labor. That is what has been seen in the last three decades and even now. And this is the multifaceted manifestation of the flaws and inefficiencies of capitalism.
The Corona epidemic has raised the unemployment rate in the United States by 14.7 percent. Last April alone, 25 million people lost their jobs.
A couple of months ago, the US unemployment rate was 3.5 percent. Which was the lowest in the last 50 years. Eric Grosshen, a former chief economist at the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, said it was “historically unprecedented.” To get rid of the epidemic, we have taken our economy into a medical coma.
In the age of globalization, many more horrible wounds are being noticed in the capitalist finance and social system in the imperialist process. UN officials themselves have acknowledged that the demand for cheap goods and services has created a worldwide modern slave system. It should be noted that in the modern era (capitalist-imperialist era of globalization) this slave system is forced labor.
UN officials fear that in response to the financial crisis, more industries and businesses will resort to various illegal activities, including tax evasion. Will not give accurate information to workers in their organization, No rules will be followed for their salary and employment. For this purpose, all these industries and businesses have to do a lot of work in a very secret or unethical way. Many well-known multinational companies in the face of the financial crisis are being involved in various misdeeds including coercion, cheap labor, child labor, and plunder of women labor. And these are the ‘gifts’ of capitalist-imperialist globalization.
Another world-wide naked form of capitalism-imperialism is seen through various forms of unilateral attacks, coercive warfare, bloody streams of aggression, and barbaric behavior such as military-armed war-shouting. Occupancy, military activity, and expansion of military bases in areas of the world’s natural resources and geopolitically important continue.
The world as a whole has been turned into a free pasture for international looting.
A clearer idea of the capitalist-imperialist cycle can be found in the arms race and the hustle and bustle of arms production. If the world was peaceful and normal, so many weapons would not be needed.
The proliferation of weapons proves that capitalism-imperialism is engaged in a secret and undeclared war against human civilization on earth.
The people of the capitalist-imperialist globalization, globalization are seeing hundreds of millions of people drowning in tears and blood. Their lives, their wealth, their struggles, their lands, even the soil under their feet are being washed away. Their identity, existence, beliefs, and rights are being washed away. Blood-soaked capitalism-imperialism is galloping like a mad horse for more profit and looting. No peace-loving people have a chance to get rid of it. While destroying people’s dreams, families, countries, and villages, this insane capitalism-imperialism is pushing the entire human race into the blind pit of exploitation and poverty. The world’s largest and most horrific chaos has been created in the world through war, tension, riots, and groups of imperialists. The capitalism that was called ‘humanitarian’ in the sweet words of the pseudo-scholars is once again seeing how exploitative, how oppressive, and how brutal the history is. The way the socialist ideology led by the former Soviet Union lured people under the guise of socialist social-expansionism, in the same way, the capitalist-imperialist ideology is now drawing the people of the world towards the enjoyment and arbitrariness of the colorful and illusory world of capitalism. But no inhuman philosophy or ideology can survive on earth in the guise of exploitation and oppression. It collapses like a house of cards. Socialist exploitation and oppression broke down in 70 years. The abominable inhuman nakedness of capitalism-imperialism, it does not have the capacity to survive even 70 years of such an anti-civilization ideology. Under the footsteps of the emancipation of the awakened people, graves will soon be created for the dream of brutal capitalist-imperialist globalization.
