Why all the '-isms' fail - except the one's we got now

Summary: All proposed alternatives to the current socio-economic model are failures due to the inability of these models to account for basic societal forces stemming from a general desire for the accumulation of material wealth. Often this is due to a myopic view of the present which does not succeed in tracing behavioral tendencies down to root causes.


The flaccid inefficacy of revolutionary movements in bringing about meaningful changes in public consciousness, or actual governance, is by this point in time glaring. Proponents of the alternative ‘-isms’ have become adept at pointing out superficial scapegoats, and have developed systems of classification that border on religious orthodoxy, while making no tangible progress towards their stated aims.
