Capitalism has been deified as the symbol of human freedom. Actually it is a human fetter. It creates havoc on people, destroys their nations and make the populace homeless. It destroys human and animal habitat and turn the occupants of this great planet as the slaves and fodder that the history has never seen before.

This man-made phenomenon will eventually be overthrown by the very slaves it had created, not the way that Karl Marx had predicted because his concept of human freedom is also based on man’s slavery to work, but by the Dhaarmic concept of Purushaartha, the four-fold human pursuit of happiness.

The pursuit of money and the enjoyments through it (known as materialism in common parlance) has broken all borders, destroyed all allegiences such as nationalities, and collapsed all identities such as a Hindu and so on pushing everyone into a one secular (evolutionary) concept of ‘human’ as opposed to animals (or even aliens), a queer distinction indeed!

This system based on this notional ‘money’ that is increasingly seen as real (though truly unreal in absolute term) is the driving force of the political economy that has an inbuilt attrition. This blog will expose this fact.

Yet this system with its default possesses a surprising ability to return after each collapse that causes massive destruction of men and materials. This is because an alternative to it has not been grasped by man. And truly because such alternative has to be different from the material pursuit. The system has pushed the man to drift far and away from any spiritual pursuit that today he is ill-equipped to try differently when the crisis sets in, leading to the system’s collapse.

Only the Hindus had grasped the true nature of this glossy yet ugly system. However I am conscious that such awareness of the nature of capitalism by the Hindus would not find many takers among most of you. I owe it to you to explain this in due course. Not only that. The true destruction of this capitalism, root and stem, lies only in the hands of the Hindus.

Lord Krishna had said in his famous Bhagavat Geetha:

ParithraaNaaya saadhunaam vinaasaayacha dhushkrithaam
Dharma samsthaapanaarthaaya sambhavaami yuge yuge.

    Your understanding of Capitalism is lacking. Capitalism is based upon individual cooperation between willing buyers and willing sellers to satisfy individual needs and desires not the pursuit of money materialism. Some individuals have been consumed by the pursuit of money, fame, sex, and power under every economic system followed by members of every religion including Hinduism.

      Your understanding of capitalism is based on fancy such as ‘cooperation’ etc. and it completely ignores the greed and avarice factor. Get a clear idea on human nature by thoroughly grasping the ‘guna’ factor that I am describing in my on-going article on the myth of capitalism.

      Capitalism Prints and values money. Money is unreal and should be given very low importance. You don’t understand Capitalism Robert Lynn. Hinduism is the best in the world.

      No Robert Lynn, you are incorrect. Your definition of capitalism is very fancy. It is based on animal instinct. More and more animal you become, more wealthy u are, this is capitalism. Every individual has got lust, anger, greed, pride, envy and illusion in him/her and the purpose of education or civilization is to make people free from this. But your capitalism uses these evils to construct concrete jungle(forest). Therefore, a hopeless and frustrated western world we see. today, although they are very advance in economic sense. Capitalism has created a havoc. Surely, very soon it is going to collapse and no need of any external army to destroy it. Capitalism is itself suicidal.

  2. Sir, we do not have true capitalism, or better, a free market. We are micro-managed by eco-extremists and other special-interest groups, and some businesses are given favoritism over their would-be competition by our government officials. We have elitists in government who think the working person cannot be trusted on his own to do right. Corporations have to go through reams of paperwork if they want to be able to utilize a natural resource to produce fuels for energy, or start a new business. I would say the EPA is the biggest obstacle to job creation. Next would be Congress members who show favoritism to certain businesses who will be their supporters at election time.

      Where is the so called ‘true capitalism’ that you profess? In your mind?! I hate to say ‘believe me’, but the fact as we know by our experience is that capitalism is the anti-thesis of anything that is free including the ‘free market’. ‘Derivatives’ and ‘naked derivatives’ that had rocked the world to its bottom are concepts of this developing idea of capitalism that no one can stop or control once capitalism whose engine is lawful cheating is set into motion.

    Yes Capitalism is asuric. Here the seller is the dictator of terms where the buyer is at the receiving end. Any ism there should be truth in the transactions which is rare to get now a days. For the survival of the world spirituality should be the base of the society.I want to state my understanding of Asuric. As per the Hindu puranas the ausuras were the people having rajesic mind and tamasic mind who wanted to control the whole world/universe.We have seen this in the modern history of the world. To quote Hitler is one among those Asuars. Same is the case with the capitalists who want to have monopoly over the products they deal with to dictate their terms to the buyers.
