From the earliest age, I have been [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uC0Z5kM79lI<span style="color: pink;">resistant to authority</span>], which for the most part, given the state of human societies through to the present, is generally illegitimate. Why? Because essentially every society up to this time is organized on the principle of domination of others in order to extract the value of their living labor, make individuals conform to local belief systems, etc. Progress is ever countering this over the long march of history because it is inimical to human nature but paradoxically, in this time, [[:en:Capitalism| <span style="color: pink;">資本主義</span>]], the doctrine of the extraction of value from labor, is also the one that makes it possible for individuals to be free of domination, if they can work for themselves. To the extent that it is organized for the well being of all the members, like a healthy body in relation to its cells, the authority of society <i>is</i> legitimate, and because this is the reason for society to exist at all, over time the progressive outcome becomes more certain and manifest.

I am very far from thinking that the acquisitive instinct is fundamentally wrong or that altruism is necessarily right. I definitely believe that selfishness which does not harm others can be a virtue, it's just that so far, a social form that makes it so has not been achieved and indeed the apparent trend is away from a high point in the last century, not as was thought then as a result of totalitarian socialism but rather ironically as a result of the global dominance of doctrinal capital with its supposed philosophical base in individualism.
 
  
To paraphrase [[:en:Deng_Xiaoping| <span style="color: pink;">邓小平</span>]], it is indeed glorious to become rich, but not from the expropriation of the value of the labor of others and not at the expense of the optimal development of society at large.

Many pages here in this period had a job seeking purpose.

Defined as a basing of society solely on the principle of accumulation, Capitalism will ultimately be unsustainable because of the unappreciated aspect of mortmain. Every social order puts someone, a class, in charge. Globlaized Capitalism is unique in that it <i>just</i> puts a class in charge and an abstract one at that. It's just false that that class operates in the way former orders did to control and order society actively, indeed they are incapable of doing so since the globalized class is inhibited by a number of practical reasons from being the same kind of conscious actor that a national bourgeoisie can be and most simply pursue their own interests and genuinely don't desire power aside from that which accumulation confers. It is this rudderlessness which ultimately will cause a return to Capitalism just being an economic regime within society organized on some other principle(s) as was the case in its progressive period, and is the case, e.g. in Communist countries where a strong party controls it.
