    Western Civilization and the Economic Crisis...


    by Andrew Gavin Marshall

    The western nations of the world have built their great wealth and societies on the exploitation and plundering of the people and resources of the rest of the world. The wealth, freedom, and structures of our societies have been built on the starvation, robbery, deprivation and murder of millions upon millions of the world’s people, both historically and presently.


    It seemed for a time that “Western Civilization” had worked, even if only for the west. We saw the emergence and growth of a vibrant middle class, which has its origins in the Industrial Revolution, out of which we also saw the formation of the “nuclear family.” The middle classes of the west grew in wealth, education, and access. While the great problems of the world, and for the majority of the world’s people, persisted and expanded exponentially, the great purpose of the middle class was siphoned and expanded into facilitating the development of a massive consumerist society. The function of the middle class became that of consuming, not necessarily contributing to determining the direction of society.



    Nevertheless, life was good; or so it seemed. Thus, the people were by and large able to turn a blind eye to the plight of the world’s majority. As the decades progressed, however, the great western empires, increasingly united under the umbrella of a US-led NATO empire, grossly expanded their plundering and exploitation of the rest of the world. New avenues for capitalist expansion needed to be found, more money to be made, more assets to be owned, more power to be had. As a part of this process, class structure was being reorganized, which meant that the middle class was to undergo an evolution.



    In the past few decades, the middle class has been forced to survive on debt. In order to maintain the image of middle class, and to maintain the functions of the middle class (i.e., to consume), the middle class needed access to credit and had to descend into a class of debt. Now, as the world is undergoing a rapid social, political, and economic transformation, the middle class has been marked for death. As a debt crisis takes the nations of the world into debt servitude, the middle classes of the western world will lose their access to credit, and will be forced into repaying their debts. As nations fall under a debt crisis, the middle class will collapse with it. A class built and sustained on debt is not sustainable. We are entering into a period of rapid class transformation on a global scale. ........

    Let's keep this short and sweet....global white 'supremacy' ends when WE say it does. It's only been going on for as long as it has because black people have allowed it. It simply cannot exist without our cooperation.

    To a large extent i agree with your points.

    i just think that as demographics change black folks really need to realize that this thing called "white supremacy" only exists in folks minds, and in the history books of the past.

    globally speaking, white folks have a minority status. the tea party reactionaries see the non-white world closing in on them so understanding their psyche they no longer see themselves as "supreme" beings.

    i forgot the exact term this was referenced the other day watching 60 minutes. but they are approaching in this country "white minority status".

    and its not just black people who will decide when white supremacy is over. china, india, venezuela, brazil and many more countries that are developing more rapidly and accelerating the fall of american capital play a part in the white folks demise.

    I understand what you guys are saying. I will add that Blacks and any others cannot see to it that the system falls as long as we/they allow the mental training to persist. It has to be completely gutted; we can't take up where they leave off---otherwise it's all moot.

    Again, i agree but....

    white "supremacy" is crumbling as rapidly as capitalism. this is something that nkrumah, fanon, malcolm, and others stated would happen but somehow we got black folks thinking that white supremecy can be defeated within context of capitalism. that's not how this going down.

    the fall of white supremacy/capitalism is an objective condition which will occur regardless of black folk's mental state or consciousness. what we think is a subjective condition but the objective nature of capitalism is not dependent upon our subjectivity.

    now i think the only situation in which anything can be "moot" is if black folks do not alter or change their own position, so long as black folks continue to see themselves "victimized" by white supremacy/capitalism because...


    the chinese, japanese, indians, latin americans, and africans who were enslaved and colonized by white folks ain't tripping on the suremacy of white folks or their own victimization because in numerous instances they militarily defeated the same or waged national liberation struggles then developed their own economies to competitie levels in which now the so-called white supremacists find themselves out maneuvered within the system they created.

    this is what happened in the past to egypt, , greece, rome and babylon where they built up the wealth of their colonies and the colonies later surpassed the wealth of the imperial power.

    the thing for black folks is how do we adjust inside belly of beast which is losing its life force.

    see the key word to this thread is global.
