The Royal Buffoon


A state jester. Economics and State.

Our society lacks one really important government job.

The one of a Government Jester. It should be a person who will tell rulers, ministers and all those in power... not only what they want to hear or what official opposition likes to scream out (while being supported by competing clans, magnates and neighboring states)…
but also something ...kind, light and right...

In olden days there was a position of a royal jester. A jester was allowed to do and say a lot and no none got offended or put dogs on him. However, a jester was often allowed to make quite sober statements even though he made it in a humorous way.

Honestly, I don't like to vote for anyone. But I would surely vote for some main government jester candidate.

Democracy is a mask. Mask smiling, good and fair. Anything can hide under this mask, but it does not matter. The evolutionary progress and advantage of democracy over other forms of government lies precisely in this public goodness. In order not to hide under this mask, formally it is forced to somehow match its shape. And this form is the only thing that can hold back the monster hidden under it.

The theory of free market and free competition argues that the state should not regulate the market, they say, in conditions of free competition, he stabilizes naturally, as in nature... and everything will be fine... the so-called macroeconomic equilibrium is Formed. This remarkable theory, which attempts to compare the market with the natural environment, has a number of weak and vicious misconceptions.

Indeed, in nature in a separate area there may exist a balanced ecosystem in which they can successfully exist in the food chain: lions, rabbits, deer, grass, etc. and all these elements of the system are balanced and affect each other, maintaining harmony. It is believed that this system is similar to the"free market". However, this observation is superficial.

Consider the details and compare the natural situation with the open market: this system can only regulate the number of individuals of a species in a certain area. But even this she does with nuances. Consider a pride of lions: pride of food to control some territory, the forces of all prides are about the same, the number of individuals in the pride, too limited of various natural mechanisms. That is, such a phenomenon, when the lion pride will grow to an incredible size and enslave everything around - in nature, this phenomenon is impossible. And the most important difference... the lion, being a natural element, has stable characteristics that can vary very slightly. His strength, size, speed, intelligence is limited... He can't become a super lion-titanium, to invent guns and shoot deer from any distance, use a shovel and gas to smoke rabbits out of burrows... He can not easily and quickly navigate through the world, looking for this habitat is full of food, and he has no enemies (remember the situation when the bunnies got to Australia, where they had no natural enemies for 7 years, ate half of the flora of the island). That is the power and ability of a lion in a systematic way are limited. The lion and his pride a lot of things can not: they do not have communication systems, are unable to store food, we can not control the vast areas, destroying everything around. Their distribution and power is limited by nature in principle. They are not something that can't kill other lions and their prides, they even deer and hares are not able to destroy with all his desire…

And even in this state, this system functions in waves-from crisis to crisis. Rabbits have multiplied, then lions, then the lions ate birds, then the lions died of starvation. This situation is not particularly acceptable for humanity: people do not really like when they are eaten, or when they die of hunger.

But the subjects of economic relations-companies and corporations can do all this perfectly well. Their management systems, communications, intelligence, access to financial sources, allow them to grow indefinitely. That is, if you compare a Corporation with a lion, you can see that this is a very specific lion. It is huge, it is growing all the time, it is constantly getting smarter and improved, it is able to endlessly destroy all its competitors, absorb resources. To escape from it rabbits, ROE deer, and other smaller predators is very problematic... this lion can move freely around the world, getting into conditions where he has an abundance of food and no enemies at all (a natural lion such a joy and did not dream). That is, if the natural lion is naturally limited in its power, then the Corporation, being an artificial object, has no such restrictions, and can grow and modify indefinitely, until it absorbs and fills (as a rule, while destroying) the parent environment.

Is this situation unique in nature? Not at all. It exists quite well at the level of the micro-world in the environment of bacteria and cells. And the most striking analogue of the Corporation in the micro-world are cancer cells and viruses. Yes, they can also grow endlessly inside the body, absorbing all available resources, they can constantly change and improve. And in General they're reaching the limit, destroy the body. But even in this natural mechanism is not so simple. Inside the body there is an immune system, the purpose and existence of which is every second and uncompromising fight against all these cancer cells and other viruses. And the result of this struggle is not predetermined: either the immune system will win, or the body will be destroyed.

That is, in fact, corporations and big business (with signs of a tumor and a foreign virus) - this is the very virus, cancer, which seek to destroy the body; and the state is the same organism that within itself should ensure the functioning of the immune system, should fight cancer, destroy foreign viruses. The immune system is what should keep the body stable by preventing something from aggressively multiplying and absorbing or breaking the body.

Summary:
A) the State is not just a natural natural area. The state is an organism where everything must be balanced and where there are various mechanisms and bodies that perform certain tasks. And where, in particular, is the immune system, which must fight cancer cells, foreign viruses, infections, etc., acting as a natural regulator. The concept of a free market in its pure uncritical form proposes to destroy this system and thus destroy the organism.

B) not all corporations are evil, and not all viruses are evil. A Corporation is a mechanism that performs a specific task. Each body has its own different organs that perform certain tasks related to the functioning of the body. And these mechanisms should work properly. Fight should be with cancerous tumors that begin to grow and destroy all systems of the body. The same goes for viruses. A normal body is always full of viruses and bacteria. Problems arise when a virus breaks through the protection of the immune system and begins to break and destroy the body's system. Especially dangerous alien virus that came from afar, those viruses against which the inside of the body has no antibodies.

C) you Should also pay attention to a very dangerous Maxim about the fact that it is better to import something than to produce inside the body. Say, why do we need our heart, because there is a clinic outside and we can connect to the artificial heart; why do we need certain hormones inside the body, why do we need a thyroid gland, and let's all get it in the form of pills.
A normal organism should receive from outside only raw materials, information, some nutrients, and then without fanaticism, so as not to be poisoned or die of obesity.

D) the Modern economic system to date, supporting the phenomenon of globalization wants to destroy such organisms, as individual States, and create one big state - like cyborg. They want to take 100 people (States) and by surgical manipulation to unite them into a single organism. As part of this process, they offer and, in fact, do a number of things. For example, they cut those States, the organs: heart, liver, stomach, hands, legs, etc., connect them to external devices for artificial ventilation are inserted into a human pile of catheters, connect the artificial heart, liver, prosthesis, etc. But because the body's immune system does not like when in it comes to something foreign, it begins to deal with it... This leads to the need on the part of the invaders completely destroy or weaken the immune system of the body. But what is an organism without an immune system? It becomes open to all diseases. The body begins to very quickly come into disrepair, in response, it begins to stuff pills and drugs. But all the same, the organs die, the body is destroyed... we Have to replace more and more artificial organs. As a result, instead of the person, instead of the state we see some sick biomass stuffed with artificial organs. A kind of futuristic chamber where lies one hundred semi-corpses, wrapped instruments, etc. That is instead of a hundred strong people, we get some kind of leper colony, a Frankenstein monster…

E) Indeed, the idea of "destroying individual States and creating a single planetary state"-to some extent makes sense. However, everything depends on the organization of this process. You can implement it as a Confederation, as a Union of equals, and you can cut off all the heads and connect all to one head. In the fight for efficiency, and optimization then cut all the hearts and connect to one artificial. You can cut off all the legs (why should they?), to immerse to the truck and quickly drive it back and forth... It all comes down to nuances... At least here is such an interesting and subtle nuance: when there were 100 bodies, there were relatively many options for choosing a place of residence... But with a single body, the redistribution of organs within one huge organism makes some huge areas very similar to the ass or legs, and others, on the contrary, ascend into the sky, piercing the clouds with their heads...

Of course, everything written above is a metaphor, and it's not that simple. And this comparison is not completely correct, but, nevertheless, the core of truth in it... And this is worth thinking about…

If we consider the state as an organism, and the corporations working within it as certain vital organs, we can highlight a number of points: what is good and what is bad.

(A) the Number, purpose and tasks of such bodies are strictly defined. Violation of the order of things carries with it very negative consequences. Such bodies should not climb on someone else's territory, they should not be more or less than necessary. They must not die. That is, strategic and corporate bodies is a sacred cow to touch that - like death.

B) Each body does only its own thing and violation of this order of things is fraught. There are sectors of the economy where corporations should work. This is, for example, high-tech production, mining and processing of minerals, engineering, etc.And there are a number of industries where something small should work, for example, small business. This, for example, light industry, food industry, trade etc. and when big business climbs to the territory of a small business, it is as if the stomach had decided to fulfil the functions of the liver. This situation is absolutely unacceptable and can kill the body. Everyone has to do their job. Energy-intensive tasks are tasks for big business, and where small business can work, only small business should work and big business has nothing to do there.

The penetration of big business with its huge resources and Titanic power into the environment where small business should work, leads to crises of overproduction, devastation, poverty, unemployment and in every way breaks the normal environment of the economy. This situation can be compared to the injection of a steroid: at the moment there is an increase in strength, but, ultimately, it destroys the body, depleting all its resources.

C) and here is another interesting situation. An alien system-a Corporation-penetrates the body and destroys the national Corporation, which previously performed a similar task. This situation is reminiscent from the full range of such pleasant things: how to replace your own kidney kidney external, artificial. It's like stuffing the body with pills, drugs, hormones. It's like cutting off limbs and replacing them with prostheses... Or even more beautiful... it involves cutting out the eyes and connecting the brain to other people's eyes, they say, why do you have your own, look with other people's eyes from someone else's body... I Wonder... And your body? God bless him, anyway it is useless lying in a hospital bed on life support artificial life support... And see from someone else's body – Yes, interesting! It's there in a tropical Paradise, swimming in the pool, eating pineapples and chewing grouse. It is the reference body…

D) Another interesting comparison concerning the interaction of external corporations and domestic small and medium-sized businesses. There was the stomach, and there were a lot of bacteria in it. All these bacteria were small businesses. Everyone did their job and everyone was happy. Then came a powerful external antibiotic (infinitely useful), come with flags, with pipes and made his infinitely bright... but the local bacteria... and bacteria? The bacteria died. Who needs those bacteria, huh? However, now without these bacteria the body will constantly get sick, weaken, drop the immune system and have to live permanently and work on tablets…

In General, comparisons and Parallels you can find a lot... And they are all with very unpleasant overtones…

How can all the arguments in texts 849 and 850 on the limitation of competition be combined with the theory of free competition, which is good leading to progress?

It's very simple: competition is good among relatively equal. Competition is good in its weight category, in one sport. And the situation when a 15-year-old boxer participates in a competition of 9-year juniors, this situation is categorically unacceptable. As well as sparring 120-kilogram fighter with 60-kilogram. Even such a seemingly innocent situation as a fight between a fighter and a boxer is not a fair fight, because the principles of combat in these fighters are different. Boxer, by nature, can not kick and go to melee, using this, the fighter can twist it and hold a painful reception. 

And the situation when an organized group of 10 people (say, a large financial conglomerate, Corporation, group of companies) shock and joyfully kick one unfortunate victim - generally requires public intervention.

Competition makes better only relatively equal opponents, in other cases, it only kills the weak. In General, competition, like democracy itself, is possible only among more or less equal. In the presence of strong and weak-need an external regulator that separates them.
