Journal o1d5ch001's Journal: The industrial method.

Capitalism, Communism, Socialism, all names for social utopian movements that use the Industrial Method of extracting maximum return from material transformations. I think for some, it is a kind of alchemy. The Industrial Method creates indenture slaves that must be convinced to work through direct physical intimidation, but more practically through various methods of coersion such as company stores sixty years ago and consumerism today.

It leaves little room for the individual. Wealth creation requires industrial like poeple, complete with predictable, machine-like behaviour and predictable knowledge. Enough creativity to add to the Industrial process, but not too much. It uses institutions like schools and television to create masses that don't think they know too much or could even understand complex issues.
