The functions of all living beings are to be born, survive (i.e. nurture and ward off), multiply, and die. We’ll talk about ethics in other moment. What matters now is that selfishness is associated to reproductive function, and cooperativeness to survival. Caveman —as with other mammals— usually cooperated to hunt, gather or defend their band societies, and competed to fuck and reproduce. Homo Sapiens Sapiens has not changed that much, because he hasn’t had time to genetically evolve according to the laws of Nature —our so-called mitochondrial Eve, must have lived just around the corner some 200,000 years ago. Today’s man is the same as he was before the Flood, though we’ve invented the umbrella, and although the temporal lobes, which contain centers for language processing, have increased disproportionately, and so our capacity of bullshitting. And I’m referring to “man” including both genders, because they —women— are not going to get away scot-free from this sweeping earful.
If you agree with above, to embrace competition as economic catalyst for mere survival is plane nonsense. Tribal wars in the Stone Age, although also had an economic, territorial component, ended up —unfailingly— with the appropriation of the females of the defeated. We could see, then, that any competitive act smells pussy —like any candle in a cloistered convent.
In a time, when you’re not allowed to call them dinosaurs any more —it’s speciesist— and you have to call them pre-petroleum persons, all the above has been travestied. The privileges’ manipulators, sorry … the outcome engineers have intimately embedded in the minds of the mass that men value in this world is not rights but privileges.
So let’s get serious now and use something that expresses values that reflect the cosmos, including orderliness, balance, harmony, logic, and abstract beauty. I’m talking about mathematics, moron!
Privilege implies exclusion from privilege, just as advantage implies disadvantage. In the same mathematically reciprocal way, profit implies loss. If you and I exchange equal goods, that is trade: neither of us profits and neither of us loses. But if we exchange unequal goods, one of us profits and the other loses. Mathematically. Certainly. Now, such mathematically unequal exchanges will always occur because some traders will be shrewder than others. But in total freedom —in anarchy— such unequal exchanges will be sporadic and irregular. A phenomenon of unpredictable periodicity, mathematically speaking.
Now look about you —raise your nose from your great blog and survey the actual world as it is— and you will not observe such unpredictable functions. You will observe, instead, a mathematically smooth function, a steady profit accruing to one group and an equally steady loss accumulating for all others. Why is this? Because the system is not free or random, any mathematician would tell you a priori.
Well, then, where is the determining function, the factor that controls the other variables? You could name it yourself: the Great Tradition. Privilege, I prefer to call it. When A meets B in the marketplace, they do not bargain as equals. A bargains from a position of privilege; hence, he always profits and B always loses. And… and there is no more Free Market here than there is on the other side of the Great Wall. The privileges, or Private Laws —the rules of the game, as promulgated by the Central Committee of the Communist Party on that side and by the U.S. government and the Federal Reserve Board on this side— are slightly different; that’s all.
And it is this what is threatened by anarchists, and by the repressed anarchist in each of us.
Coming back to point, intellectual honesty should lead us to assume cooperation in the economic, and relegate competition to the playful fields. And I don’t mean the deferred competition, that of the hooligans of a football team, but the real one, which leads to childbearing.
Evidence compels the recognition of truth: the entrepreneur channels part of his sexual energy into competition and success in economic/social areas, because he believes that’s the right way, perhaps even shorter, to get some females to fuck. Had he made it in public schools, and not with the Jesuits, he would not compete with his peers with teeth like a pit-bull, but would partner with them to achieve the same ends —in a much less harmful way to environment, to himself and to the rest of humanity— and would devote his free-time to court females, a system that produces better and faster results than first dehorning yourself by working to line up the kidney.
Strong, right? So I will be even more ruthless, and I’ll say it in a way any Social Security shrink —tenured officer— could corroborate: Entrepreneurship and competition, so lauded in business schools, are just fucking sexual deviations.
But, but, but …
So many times the entrepreneur comes home late at night, more tired than the Titanic’s plumber, not wanting anything but sleep … leaving intercourse for weekends … and … as every woman carnally unmet tends to disorder and chaos as a parade of lame, here appears the first opportunity for anarchy: Many of the children of the very great neoliberal bastards are genetically anarchists: sons of Alfa males who greet each other with both hands clasped, and fuck with enthusiasm, tenacity and taking their time. And from behind.
