Acute capitalism, chronic underdevelopment and economic prison | By Nneka Okumazie


The ranking of what to do leads to some of life’s most difficult situations. Also, knowing that knowing what to do is so important is an important step.

Not knowing what to do and not knowing that you do not know what to do is a base of problems.

Knowing what to do is often not about the immediately obvious, easily accessible, or common choice, but the combination of unique, achievable, etc., whatever the problem.

Something is wreaking havoc on most developing countries internally, more than people’s perceptions of leadership or outside influences.

In many developing countries the assumption of what to do and equivalent knowledge is capitalism.

The overwhelming problems that most of them face do not come first as long as their capitalist machine is functioning.

But capitalism – uniformly – is in fact not a machine, but rather a prison.

The prison isn’t exactly elastic – but in the event that it is, it slowly expands under similar conditions.

If the prison is overcapacity, it becomes much more dangerous, resources are scarce, only a few are affected.

The problem is the economic system, not population growth.

Preventing the need for prison is all the more important since it is limited and hardly beneficial, and if it gets to the point where it has to be too full, something is collectively broken.

Wherever capitalism goes, it becomes a prison for its participant.

In prisons, for some places with some good behavior, they are able to learn, do better, and make changes with or without full supervision.

But for other places, it’s almost an unscrupulous commotion at the mill.

In the small communities that were mostly people throughout history, trust was not so rare. There were only a few things to possibly want to betray about.

But with capitalism infecting everywhere, trust in many places if not available, and fear pervasive – even in unrelated cases of negligible risk.

Capitalism, for many, is decision making. Capitalism determines compassion. Capitalism determines who or what is abandoned. Capitalism gives a goal even when progress is adrift.

Capitalism gives the impression that sympathy for buying is accomplishment, rather than discovering new ways or places where buying will not be necessary for certain purposes.

There are many in the mission of capitalism who do not know exactly what it is or about or who do not understand its inelasticity, who segment others, with acceptance or not, depending on what capitalism reveals.

Thinking that capitalism – a one-size-fits-all prison – based on standards elsewhere is the right thing to do, results in most people being favored or disadvantaged by capitalism without too many consequences in many developing countries.

There are people who keep saying to continue civilization, the knowledge to build it must be preserved. But it is possible that some people with a rare conscience have become benefactors of civilization.

So having these people and whatever makes them emerge – has mainly led to progress. But in many developing countries they don’t have a start because the more some of them can maneuver for a position or to the right of capitalism, the further they get away from what it takes to know what to do for start civilization, or to know that they have to know what to do.

Although other economic systems tried in the last century failed, not because uniform capitalism was better, but because they actually operated on capital centrally, but generally changed the name of the prison while claiming that it was not subject to the conditions of capitalism.

Perhaps the main proponent of the system made some good observations, but the recommendations lacked depth, so those who accepted experienced it nonetheless, combining it with a crass political system that led to disaster.

Plus, the system created winners, which they might have thought they wouldn’t.

They diluted capitalism, because they did not know how to do without totally or very little money, suppressed supplies, etc.

In some ways, capitalism has ruined what education should be, for rather than education becoming a tool for real progress or a tool for sharpening awareness of rarer qualities, education has become a tool for the capitalism.

There are more educated people in the world, but the education it takes to make a difference, to progress, or to identify what progress means, is difficult to access.

Educational funnels for the prison of capitalism – not to an exit for some parts, reliably. So most of the time, what is everywhere is not education, it is the advantage of capitalism.

For developing countries, failing to identify most of their problems, separating themselves from those who await them, could be their lasting tragedy.

There are many places in many developing countries that are not in the 21st century.

They may have 21st century symbols, but they actually live centuries away from a millennium ago.

So these countries with these kinds of places are pushing capitalism with vigor, without owning or knowing the key?

Perhaps the developed countries have already accepted their destiny where uniform capitalism would lead them, but for many developing countries they are most likely unsustainable, eternally, as long as they have total capitalism – in the form of the here.
