  1. History answered this question more than 100 years ago with Lenin's classic work “Imperialism as the highest stage of capitalism”. Thus, after capitalism, imperialism is not possible, but in reality exists for the entire twentieth century. Consequently, the question should be restated differently: “What social order is possible after imperialism?” According to Lenin, this can be either an evolutionary socialism of developed countries, or a revolutionary socialism of the capitalist-underdeveloped periphery, as, for example, happened in Russia in 1917. It is important to keep in mind that there is no direct connection between technological (economic) and socio-political revolutions (formations and reformations), since they relate to hierarchically different levels of social existence, just as “the chemistry of ink does not determine what is written with this ink”.


  2. Everyone talks about” capitalism”, but they don't really understand what it is. As a rule, it is associated with the legal relationship of private property. To answer this question, you need to have a scientific concept of “capitalism”, and it still does not exist and did not exist even in Karl Marx. Just do not confuse it with the capitalist mode of production, which was described by Karl Marx in his political economic work “Capital”. “Capitalism” is not an economic concept, but a socio-political one, but unfortunately it is confused in this term with the economic one, which hinders its understanding. Unlike “capitalism” in political economy (in Karl Marx's Capital), these two concepts are designated (separated) by different terms, which creates an understanding of the political-economic hierarchical parallelism of the material basis and the political superstructure.

  3. Definitely communism! Although gradually.Even now, you can see the development of socialism in the highly developed countries of Europe (check out the Scandinavian model). In Japan, for example, more than 70% of industrial enterprises are fully automated,which means that the owners of these enterprises will not need human labor. Thanks to the fourth technological revolution, the majority of the world's population will be unemployed.It is hard to imagine that this will not concern either these people or the governments of states. However, the solution to this problem is quite easy– this is the main income.Although this is not the only solution in any case, the redistribution of funds will be carried out not by the owners, but by the state.Thus, the economic part will be fully controlled by the state.

    I'll answer all your questions in the comments!

  4. Not everything is so simple, if capitalism is not touched, then by itself it will slide to fascism, to an open military dictatorship, and so on. Capitalism can be defeated in a revolutionary way, overthrowing the ruling class with difficult to predict consequences. You can try to overthrow capitalism by organizing a mine replacing the share of GDP with collective management thereby removing people and means of production from the economy. This will definitely provoke a reaction from the ruling class at some point and will still lead to a revolution, but from a more favorable position. So in any case, there is a fork behind capitalism. Or somehow disguised, but fascism or socialism-communism.

  5. If we understand capitalism as a market economy, then only a blind person does not see that it is being destroyed all over the world. Greta Tumberg makes everyone switch to sailboats and low-speed solar-powered airplanes. All this will end just as sadly as in the USSR. The catastrophe and misery of poor Europeans.

    On the other hand, mass robotization of everything and everything is coming. According to forecasts, 430 million jobs in the world will disappear in the next 10 years. Trucks without drivers will drive on roads, robots without people will work in mines, and robots without people will mine minerals on the sea floor. Translators, salespeople, and bank employees will no longer be needed, and all the professions of people working on phones will disappear. A huge number of workers will be freed up. People will simply be given money to live on. The Communist dream will come true: the majority of the population will become equal in poverty. But a small part of humanity will become demigods. They will own these robots and these robotic productions. Below these demigods will be the security forces who protect them, the doctors who treat them, and the scientists who develop the robotic industry. Apparently, there will be a terrible stratification of society on an equal footing in the poverty of idle freeloaders of ordinary citizens and the elite. The elite will be arrogant and proud. It will select talented young people among freeloaders. There will be difficult exams, probably stupid ones. But only those to whom parents will hire the right tutors will be able to pass them. All other citizens will be trained by robots. The structure of society will be somewhat similar to Ancient China. There will be a universal Son of Heaven. The leaders of the countries will remain, but they will lose real power and respect.

  6. It will be a technocratic society, which will still have to come up with a name.

    To date, it is quite obvious that

    a) it will not be socialism / communism, or at least not according to Marx, since Marxism has not passed the test in practice, and the “pink” ones are more inclined to reformism and alliances with the big bourgeoisie than to radical changes;

    b) human development will not end with capitalism;

    c) the importance of technology and automation will increase.

    It is impossible to say for sure whether the borders between nations will be erased or the world will become a “salad bowl” in which everyone will mix, but not mix. However, it is 100% certain that the importance of national borders will decrease so much in the coming years that the differences between states will be formal.

    One of the possible scenarios, by the way, may be the so-called New Middle Ages. The main masses will get fucked up with tolerance and others like it, they will stock up on weapons and, as a result of the mental turmoil provoked by new challenges, they will start going to churches and mosques on weekends. States in the course of natural decentralization and globalization will practically break up into relatively small areas with a common lingua franca in the form of English, and presidents will begin to reign-but-not-rule under the pressure of local elites.

  7. there are two most likely options. the first, good one: we will cross the post-industrial barrier, and the main mode of production will change from a centralized conveyor (industrial) to a decentralized individual (post-industrial) one. There is currently no name for the social order corresponding to this mode of production; one can only try to define it in terms that currently exist, such as anarcho – postindustrial. its key feature will be the marginalization of the concept of “power “to the level corresponding today to such concepts as, for example,” slavery “and”cannibalism”. extreme flexibility, dynamism and, so to speak, mosaic production will give rise to similar flexibility and dynamism of self-government systems of societies at different levels.
    the second option, the bad one: rollback. it will be techno-feudalism with all its charms (for a select few) and the horrors of nah (for everyone else).

  8. Theory of right-wing currents:

    1. Capitalism -> supercapitalism. (liberalism)

    2. Capitalism -> state capitalism. (right-wing authoritarian ideologies (nazism, fascism, etc.)

    3. Kapitalizm -> gosudarstvennom kapitalizm/sverhkapitalizm – > > sverhkapitalizm/gosudarstvennom kapitalizm. (circumstances that changed course)

    4. Capitalism – > state capitalism/supercapitalism – > > supercapitalism/state capitalism – > > > state capitalism/supercapitalism – > > > … (cycle). (REPEATED OCCURRENCE OF EXCHANGE RATE CHANGE CIRCUMSTANCES (in fact, stability may occur somewhere in the distant period)

    5. Capitalism – > supercapitalism ->> ? (the emergence of a new teaching)

    6. Capitalism -> state capitalism ->> ? (the emergence of a new teaching)

    7. Capitalism – > supercapitalism / state capitalism – > > the last imperialist – > > > lack of life. (current implementation, if it is not possible to raise the left currents)


    Theory of left-wing currents:

    1. Capitalism – > socialism – > communism. (Marxism and trends based on it)

    2. Capitalism – > socialism. (Borderline with authoritarian right-wing movements (national Bolshevism)).

    3. Capitalism – > revolution – > war communism – > communism. (Trotskyism)

    4. Capitalism – > revolution – > socialism – > communism. (If item one didn't go peacefully)

    5. Capitalism – > revolution – > anarcho-communism. (here it is probably clear that this is for anarcho-communists).

    6. Capitalism – > revolution – > anarcho-syndicalism – > anarcho-communism/communism. (in this case, rather communism, because there is an intermediate social system)

    7. Capitalism – > reforms and concessions – > > socialism – > > > socialism/communism. (center-left).


    In case of joint implementation:

    1. Capitalism – > choosing a side (countries of the 1st or 2nd worlds) – > > international skirmish, in which everyone will show Kuzkin's mother – > > > victory of one of the ideas/no less international death.


    If something new appears (VERY UNLIKELY):

    1. Capitalism -> ?

    2. Capitalism -> ? -> ?

    3. Capitalism -> ? -> ? -> ?

    4. ? -> ?

    5. the rest can be thought out for yourself because already ass…you can switch the keyboard to create arrows.



  9. After capitalism, there will be … even more capitalism.

    The not very precise term “capitalism” describes the conditions of free life and human activity, which are constantly changing in the direction of increasing the degree of economic and political freedom, which entails an increase in individual and social wealth, as well as an increase in the volume and complexity of innovation.

    At the center of the history of civilization is man. �

    The whole history of civilization is the history of the expansion of human freedom.

    Everything that opposes human freedom is doomed to perish and disappear.

    In order to assume the “end” of capitalism, it is necessary to allow the elimination of human rights and freedoms, the introduction of a planned economy. Such an” end ” of capitalism was already coming – in Russia in 1917, when a totalitarian system was installed instead of capitalism, which lasted only 74 years. This is the end of any system that opposes human freedom.

    The most obvious prospect for the evolution of capitalism is the dismantling of state structures and the replacement of their functions by private or public initiative.
