Just Make It Die Out Quietly…

Paul B. Hartzog
Nov 8, 2017 · 1 min read

“The drive of capitalism is that of an auto-reproduction toward its perpetuation. Capitalism is thus interminable. No matter how futile and harmful it is, it does not end. Even if our thought changes, or the state regulates it, it does not end. Capitalism is not a product of our desire, but our desire is the product of capitalism. Notwithstanding this power, however, if and only if it fails to capture surplus value, it will die out. … [It] won’t ‘overthrow’ capitalism; it will just make it die out quietly.”
