I have theorized a mode by which the capitalists can stop the advancement of communism forever, and I can't find any related texts online about this subject.
My idea comes from a video made by Cockshott, in which he discussed the idea of progress, and what progress actually means, according to Fukuyamaists and other bourgeoisie philosophers, dialectical materialism does not exist and there is no force behind the development of human societies and thus no historical progress. According to materialists, progress is the development of a new mode of production, called communism, which means production for use and not for exchange.
However my idea is this, each mode of production is dictated by the cognitive abilities of the human society aswell as the material conditions of such society and progress would not only be the development of the next mode of production but also the development of more complex cognitive capabilities necessary for this mode of productio
An hypothetical experiment of this is the following:
It consist of imposing modern neoliberal capitalism on a human society of the past, for example serf societies of the middle ages, If we were to hire these people to work on a modern finance firm, I believe that they wouldn't have either the experience, knowledge or the cognitive ability to do so. We cannot measure the intelligence of serfs from the middle ages, however we understand that, human evolution shows that intelligence is developed more and more as times move on. We can do the same hypothetical experiment with early civilizations, prehistoric humans, and even homo erectus, homo habilies and other later homos and so on. At one point we simply would not have modern capitalism due to the sheer complexity of it.
If this is true, and I believe it is, it means that, in order to have capitalism, we need X IQ coefficient, and in order to have communism, we need X+n. Feudal societies, had X-a, while prehistoric men had X-b and so on.
Now before you claim that i am an eugenecist, we understand that IQ is affected by external variables, the most important being pollution, pollution with heavy metals and other toxins have shown to reduce cognitive abilities, Poor nutrition and lack of education also stuns the development of cognitive abilities.
How could we fix this? I dont think transhumanism is the solution because only the bourgeoisie will have access to it.
anchored for shit-tier IQ discussion, turned into a shitstorm immediately
