Capitalism’s fundamental values have been on a hard test since the worldwide financial crisis started in 2008. A global crisis we have seen before, why it should have been enough to prevent a crisis like the one we are struggling with now in the whole world.Nothing repeats itself and the current situation is not like previous crises, the concept is paved with manipulation via the Internet’s invisible image of reality, which among other things was exploited by Lehman Brothers resulting in the so-called “subprime crisis”.Dominoes fell on the strip in the capitalist part of the world, and all asked gaping “how could this happen”. Well we know some of the history behind these scandals, but perhaps not enough to hedge the normal course, where everything had been inflated to unrealistic values, why the world’s current bankroll was more paper, share exchange rates and air balloons on the Internet banking affairs. Banks and investment firms around the world slept more than an hour and are barely awakened yet. The capitalist system had received a blow and so much, that it may take a whole generation to licking the wounds again.
According to the legends, there are many idealists in the world and I might be tempting to believe in the ideals behind idealism’s actual attitudes to society and the lifestyle that unfold their wings of a financial crisis, that we have experienced since 2008. Is it possible to define idealism as a counterpoint to capitalism or is idealism just a hatched child of capitalism’s sometimes vicious circles?
I am quite sure that we all at some point in our lives considered idealism’s wings in our thinking, but visions may at any time rebut thoughts to facts. The distance between idealism and capitalism is not long, especially from two shortcuts, which are weighing heavily in idealism’s otherwise positive approach to everything. The two Shortcuts are “When the Manger with Money is Empty” and “More will have More when success suddenly is running in fifth gear”. The best known example today is the facebook boss and his ideal underwater objectives, which became a success and later a stock market listed company in the hope of making it big. The less successful idealists will often test the several methods of capitalism’s conditions – If this should end up less successful is it always possible to fall back on idealism’s platform, but only in thinking and a lifestyle forced upon which capitalism was proclaimed before – an enemy of the worst drawer.
Communism have been tried and tested without major success, and the part of the world that have chosen communism’s name as their system may be titled as salon-communists without knowledge of communism actual substance.
It remains still upon capitalism as a financially tool as idealism does not have any actual weapon, that can match or overtake capitalism in the present model. Capitalism has become a magnet to attract even violently opposed because of the lack of alternatives.
I will not defend capitalism as being the best financial tools – perhaps the next best after
the model we do not know yet. We are now at a crossroad, where people of the world must think, be creative and not least farsighted, and here is needed among other idealists who can formulate and clarify a shift to another system that can be used anywhere in the world and not only hot air or dreamy images of a paradise on earth. Any change in habits and ways of thinking requires time, why the foundation of both a new model of society and government must be carried out on a long-term basis and absorbed from generation to generation. A neighboring thinking in the first round could be the establishment of smaller communities, without sizes like the big elephants as Russia, China, United States and the European Union, which has led the way to a form of governance, that is both slow and expensive without greater contact to people in remote regions and even in large cities, where people only feel the air breathing in the neck from the central administration and leading politicians.
Both idealism and capitalism has good and bad sides, but seen from above is the capital’s otherwise dead coins in power over all whether rich or poor, and the question is whether the idealist one arm suddenly will receive a jackpot in the form of a brand new system – A new world order without the conspiracy’s useless, airy and secret visions.”Your life is your own responsibility” and responsible people should also help, or at least think about how the world’s sick, poor, hungry and homeless can have a better life whether it’s on idealism or of capitalism’s conditions – If this is impossible, everything else does not matter!
