Grassroots Awakening to the Rocke-Nazis' 'Humanocidal' Plans Gradually Growing.

To My Readers,

In their '''field work''', organizing resistance to the Rocke-Nazi "Eugenics", New/Final-Dark-Ages Global Program, anti-"Eugenics" organizers,  are increasingly finding an acceleratedly growing, if gradual, awakening among the “grass-roots” public, in the United States, and elsewhere as well, to the humanocidal fate that the core -- Eugenics”/ [pseudo-]Environmentalist -- plutocracy has in store for “95%” of humanity, if the majority of humanity fails to awaken in time, to the plutocracys plan, and fails to act accordingly. 

The text below is a case in point.  It is being circulated, mainly “by hand”, in samizdat fashion, in the U.S.

We do not agree with all of the analyses and recommendations contained in this text, but we do find it to be on the trail of the true intentions and plans of the Eugenics”/ [pseudo-]Environmentalist plutocracy.

For the Resumption of Global Human Progress,

M. Milankovitch


The statement ...[of the title, above]... may seem overly dramatic or simply offered to gain your interest. 

Only the last part of that is true. 

It is NOT overly dramatic but it was put there to gain your attention, and your parents’ attention, because YOU, young people, students...ARE the greatest threat to the twisted plans which the individuals that are running this country have.

They do not want you to be literate or aware of what is really going on.


     Before I go into what their plans most certainly are, a look back at a similar situation where young people rose up and derailed, for a time, the plans of these world-wide industrialists, bankers and the power elite, including members of the military-Industrial complex, is important to review, so as to gain an understanding of what these individuals have planned for you.

      At the end of World War II in the late 40's, a war that these same interests created, millions of men and women came home from the fighting and war support positions and got back to the productivity that America has since become known for. 

Things were so good economically in this country that young people of this era, that are often referred to as “baby boomers”, had the freedom to attend college without any severe economic pressures. 

They had time to question!

     This gave students the ability, as the military-industrial complex was laying plans to get this country involved in the War in Vietnam, to look into what was being said regarding our involvement in that war, why we were getting involved and other aspects that these powers did not think anyone would ever look into.

Young people did...and they were very successful.

And what they discovered through their continued investigations into the propaganda being forwarded by the powers of the time, showed that this was NOT a war that would be good for America, but VERY good for the companies supplying bombs and ammunition and other items to the war short, good only for the Military-Industrial Complex.

     So the student of the time, at colleges all over the country organized “teach-ins” about the most important lies & facts about how and why the War in Vietnam was being presented to the America public. 

After this step, massive demonstrations were organized by students and student groups, all over the county on a regular and continuing basis.

Students were so effective, committed and un-relenting in exposing the lies about the War in Vietnam, that rather than believing that the “revolution had failed” as you may have heard and some of that time may have thought, students through their efforts were so successful that you could hardly be a politician in those times and come out openly for the war, with any hope of being elected.

Students were actually in the position of dictating White House policy, regarding the War in Vietnam!

They HAD won as the students efforts began to turn the general public against continued involvement in the War in Vietnam!

    This terrified the Military-Industrial Complex and their plans for a war that would go on and on and on  making them billions of dollars of profit, all at the expense of thousands of lives on both sides and a destruction of our economy as well. 

So they decided to take action to derail the very effective efforts by students all across this country. 

Not to mention killing protesters at Kent State, Ohio. 

...killing a few students, they knew, would not stop the continued exposure of the lies that our involvement in the War in Vietnam was founded upon, including the “Gulf of Ton-kin” incident which was used as the basis for our entering the war and which has been shown to be a fabricated lie.

They had another plan.

The plan that the ruling elite, the Military-Industrial Complex and other international money interests came up with, was to infuse drugs into society, especially [M.D.:  into] the youth culture, at a level never witnessed before! 

This they knew would derail the efforts of students who were exposing the real plans of these interests. 

And it worked! 

Even Timothy Leary, who was an early proponent of taking LSD and somewhat of an opinion leader amongst the youth movement, was later exposed as a CIA officer!  Probably on a mission from the CIA to encourage the use of this dangerous drug, all to stop the protest movement against the war which the students were doing so successfully.

     But the plans of the Military-Industrial Complex and those in league with them did not stop with simply drugging an entire generation into being in-effective.

They [also] performed a “house-cleaning” of any political leader(s) that stood against them.

President John Kennedy had plans, ready to go, to scale back and stop our involvement in the War in Vietnam.

He planned to “scatter the CIA and lessen its power.” 

He had millions of U.S. printed dollars ready to be issued, bypassing a current cancer upon this country – The Federal Reserve which prints ALL our money. 

He was simply removed. 

Martin Luther King also spoke out against the War in Vietnam, a war where a high percentage of black soldiers were being killed. 

We all know his fate. 

And Robert Kennedy, also against the war, was investigating and exposing the Mafia, who were most likely involved in a dark alliance, with the power elite, in bringing drugs [in]to America where they [were] used as “weapons” against students.

The day he won the California primary, which almost certainly would have meant that he would be our next President, Robert  Kennedy was gunned down in circumstances that, still to this day, have not been investigate[d] properly.

Those individuals running the Military Industrial Complex, the International Bankers, politicians who are secretly supported by them and others, learned a less[o]n by almost having their plans derailed, by “a bunch of uppity students who think this country is theirs to run as they see fit!” 

Never again would they allow the economy to be in a good enough condition so that students would have any time to ponder the issues of they day. 

So they began to destroy the productivity America was known for. 

They certainly had a hand in creating the “environmental movement”.

The environmental movement, although needed in a world where there is too much polluting of our environment, was pushed by the media that the very same people who drugged an entire generation own and control. 

It is simply a way to force us into a “”simpler”” lifestyle while they continue to live anyway that they desire no matter the pollution they and their companies do. 

But there is, of course a darker side to their creation and support of the environmental movement

     Just before they started this campaign, real strides were being made towards developing a workable fusion reactor. 

And this form of energy, clean and abundant, since hydrogen is the most abundant element in our world, is an energy source that is directly opposed to their plans of keeping us on oil and gas for as long as they can. 

It is why they invented “global warming”, which my colleagues and I have thoroughly investigated and have found to be the biggest hoax ever forced on the people of this world! 

It was invented to stop the forward progress of any workable energy source that would derail their plans and profits.

The media they own, is relentless in forwarding the total fabrication represented by “global warming.”


     The real facts, not altered by those that work for them or who are controlled by them, show the claims about “global warming” to be completely fabricated.

In our possession is a declassified CIA report that was issued before “global warming” started being pushed, and it reports that the planet is cooling and in the years to come it will be harder to grow crops in a world that will again be host to another ice age.

Then suddenly the message was changed, at precisely the time when fusion was being researched and some successes were being made with this form of energy!  

Even a leading and current proponent of “global warming” told a colleague of one of our researchers that, “I know that global warming is false, but I know where my grant funding money comes from.”


    The current plan, it appears to be, since they can never allow another generation of students to be bright and questioning and aware of their plans, is to continue their drugging of all students.

This is being done either with dangerous psychiatric drugs, like Ritalin and Prozac, which the pharmaceutical industrial complex makes billions of dollars from, or their new campaign, using the media to present marijuana as being as safe as a cocktail at the end of a work day. Something which could not be further from the truth no matter what you have heard in the media, again which these interests totally control. 

So what is one to do to make sure that one is not put asleep to the plans of these people, that one's fellow students are not asleep to the plans of the Military-Industrial Complex and their lust for continual wars driven by their lust for profit; the lust of the International Banking Interests and their lust for the control of everything financial; those that profit from illegal world-wide trade and the Pharmec[e]utical-Industrial Complex, that is the tool of these entities to keep students unaware, asleep to their plans, or worse. (EVERY student that has shot up schools in this country was on psychiatric drugs).

     ... things STILL can be done to derail the plans and efforts of these entities who want to enslave all students and eventually every American citizen. 

First, speak to your parents and make them realize that you should never be tested for any of the made-up maladies such as Hyper this or that disorder. 

They have been fabricated by the Pharmaceutical Industrial Complex simply as a way to make students blind to the plans of a very sick group of International entities and for their profits. 

If you have problems speak ONLY to a member of the Clergy or a qualified, non-psychiatric nutritionist. 

Many of the symptoms, that students are given dangerous psychiatric drugs for, can be totally handled through proper nutrition. 

Other symptoms are alleviated through proper study methods, like making sure one does not read past ANY words that one does not understand.  Make a dictionary, at your level of reading, one of your tools [that] you always keep handy.

     If you are already on any psychiatric drug, even if you agree they are worthless and you don't like taking them...UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD YOU STOP TAKING THEM WITHOUT THE SUPERVISION BY A QUALIFIED NON-PSYCHIATRIC NUTRITIONIST!!.  There are nutritionists available that know how dangerous and worthless psychiatric drugs are and they can help get you off of them. If you have fellow students on these drugs, talk to then, help them to seek out a nutritionist to get off of them as quickly and as safely as possible. The Citizens Commission on Human Rights, CCHR,, is a psychiatric watch dog group that has booklets and videos exposing the myths put forth by psychiatrists and the Pharmaceutical Industrial Complex. In fact many of the studies reporting that drugs like Prozac and Ritalin are safe or worthwhile have been funded secretly [M.D.:  or openly!], by the very companies that make and sell these dangerous drugs!

Refuse to be caught up in the current campaign forwarding the smoking of marijuana (pot).

Pot is a far more dangerous drug than is currently reported for the very reason that a drugged society is way more easy to control than one that is wide awake and able to see through the lies of these entities that are seeking to control all Americans as a way of maintaining their own profit and power, at the expense of the country and [of] all of us.


     Imagine if you were a politician who was doing illegal things, would you want to be confronted at a press conference by reporters who would make you answer questions.

Would you want to have to answer to those that can elect you or not elect you and who are not going to back off until you, the criminal politician answers the questions regarding the missing funds that were supposed to go for maintaining our roads or keeping our schools in good repair, which, sorry...are simply now just...missing?

     No!  You would not if your were unethical in your actions. 

And that's why they work to make an America that is asleep for the most part, [with a public] who are drugged and fed with foods that are not healthy, and focused on an internet with images that no one should be exposed to [--] with us basically looking the other way and unaware of the actions and plans [that] these people have, and are forwarding against all of us, and our freedoms.


     I believe that young people are the future of this great country and our world.

I try to invest in young people. 

I want to see young people in the best possible shape possible, because that is our best “weapon” against the dire plans that these twisted entities, psychotic in their actions and only bent on maintaining their power, money, influence and control over us, have. 

I believe that we will be successful in our battle against such sick minded individuals.

But it requires us to be aware and to question their motives and the false information they send to us along today's information channels, which as outlined before, they own.

Still there is a “magic” in this country. 

We still can get the truth and they do not yet control all of the internet and there are truths there to be found by those that realize how important this battle for our own future is.

I wish you well. 

You MUST be successful in this challenge, or a new dark age will descend upon all of us. 

YOU, young people, are our best weapon against their [M.D.:  plan for our] enslavement.


There are 3 movies to watch.

One will shed light on how Washington is really run: “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.

Missing”, tells what members of our Government will do around the world to preserve their power and control, and “Oh God!” points out who is responsible for making this world a better place...

Below:  Commentaries to Neo-Classical Economists writing about Technodepreciation’ --

The Ultimate SELF-Threat to Capital[ism], and to the POWER of the "1% of the 1%"

to Continue to Rape Humanity.

To My Readers,

This blog-entry, from elsewhere, with a few edits of my own, offers to help you to discern the real motives -- of the Rockefeller ruling class -- behind their "Global Warmism" ideology.

For a Humanity Free of the World-Raping Rockefeller Ruling Class!,

M. Milankovitch

". . .Once again, we delve into the discourse, among capital’s ideological/scientific servants, about the capitalists’, and capitalism’s, fatal flaw of technodepreciation, i.e., of productive-force-growth-induced self-devaluation of past-accumulated capital-value.

Marxians can definitely gain -- a great deal -- from intensively observing, examining, and analyzing such discourses ‘‘‘psychohistorically’’’, that is, equipped with the «organon» of the Marxian paradigm of psychohistorical materialism.

See, for yourself, another case in point, below. ...



My commentary regarding these extracts is imbedded within them, or below them, in separated paragraphs, beginning with the label ‘C.:  . . .’ [for "Commentator"].

1.:   The output from equipment produced to-day will have to compete, in the course of its life, with the output from equipment produced subsequently, perhaps at a lower labour cost, perhaps by an improved technique, which is content with a lower price for its output and will be increased in quantity until the price of its output has fallen to the lower figure with which it is content.”

“Moreover, the entrepreneur’s profit (in terms of money) from equipment, old or new, will be reduced, if all output comes to be produced more cheaply.” 

“In so far as such developments are foreseen as probable, or even as possible, the marginal efficiency of capital produced to-day is appropriately diminished.

[J. M. Keynes, The General Theory of Employment, Interest, and Money, Harcourt-Brace, [NY: 1964], p. 141, emphases added by C. ].

C.:  In this quote, Keynes states, in Keynesian lingo, essentially what Marx stated as follows:  The constantly ongoing devaluation of capital, owing to the increase in the force of production, has to be compensated ... .” [Karl Marx, Grundrisse, Penguin Books, 1973, p. 317].   

The term “marginal efficiency of capital” was introduced by Keynes in his famous 1936 book entitled The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money, wherein he defined “the “marginal efficiency of capital” as “the rate of discount which would make the present value of the series of annuities given by the returns expected from the capital asset during its life just equal its supply price.”.   

Keynes does not explore, in this passage, the consequences of this capitalism-immanent continual technodepreciation of capital plant and equipment for the capitals-system as a whole.

However, I believe that we would be correct in supposing that he was aware of them.  

Indeed, per our hypothesis, this knowledge was what led to Keynes role in propagating the  
Rocke-Nazi’-engineered ideology of Eugenics in the first place.   

Keynes was director of the, Rocke-Nazi, British Eugenics Society, 1937-1944, and a race-bigot, for example describing Einstein, after Einstein published his General Theory of Relativity, as “a naughty Jew-boy, covered in ink” [David Bodanis, E = MC2:  A Biography of the World’s Most Famous Equation, Walker & Co., [NY:  2000], p. 217]. 

No doubt there are great benefits to the Rocke-Nazis, to the private owners of the “Federal” Reserve, in Keynes pro-state-capitalist prescriptions, calling for national government deficits that led to a vast military-industrial complex [Eisenhower], and to huge and continuing debt-service payments -- paid out of taxes on workers’ incomes, as a kind of new form of surplus-value, and apparently paid in perpetuity -- to the plutocratic -- especially to the Rocke-Nazi -- banks, and other “investors”, who largely supply the loans, and buy the government bonds, to finance these ‘‘‘national debts’’’.   

Keynes was a de facto supporter of Hitler, like the rest of the Rocke-Nazis, while Hitler was still a Eugenics ‘servant-dictator’, serving the Rocke-Nazis, as was also British Prime Minister Arthur Neville Chamberlain, also a member of the, Rocke-Nazi, British Eugenics Society, who, as revealed by a release of recently declassified materials by the British National Archives, in September 2011, attempted, in secret, to make a peace pact with Germany in 1938, and to help the Nazis with PR to achieve an image more palatable to ordinary Britons [].   

Keynes even wrote, in his Preface to the German edition of his General Theory, that “in offering a theory... which departs in important respects from the orthodox tradition” [he might expect] “less resistance from German, than from English, readers” [because Keynes’s theory was] much more easily adapted to the conditions of a totalitarian state” 


No surprise:  Keynes consulted with Hjalmar Schacht -- who became ‘Hitler’s Keynesian’; Hitler’s President of the Reichsbank, and Hitler's Nazi Minister of Economics, implementing Keynesian policies in totalitarian Nazi Germany -- on Keynes’s way back from his trip to totalitarian Russia as a consulted to Stalin.   

Keynes -- and Chamberlain -- only withdrew their support from the Hitler Eugenics regime once Hitler ceased to serve the Rocke-Nazis; when he turned from ‘servant-dictator’ to ‘Franken-dictator’, signaling his intension to take over the world, wresting control away from the Rocke-Nazis, e.g., by reneging on a major job that his erstwhile Rocke-Nazi masters has assigned to him: Barbarossaly destroying Russia, and Slavic Eastern Europe [and Germany, in the process, thus eliminating several potential rivals to Rocke-Nazi global rule], when Hitler created the “Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact -- officially named the “Treaty of Non-Aggression Between Germany and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics”, on 23 August 1939.  I.e., Hitler decided to liquidate his Rocke-Nazi, Meta-Nazi Eugenics former sponsors and masters in the West, first, and then to get around to liquidating Stalin, second. 

For more about these hypotheses, see --

2.:   The point under discussion is met with in the case of privately-owned undertakings when a technical discovery affords the opportunity for installing a new equipment or capital improvement which is technically superior to an equipment which is already being employed.” 

The equipment being employed, that is to say, may be rendered obsolescent and this may occur before the equipment has earned sufficient revenue to cover its past cost.”

“The question then arises whether the prices of the output of the equipment should be such as will bring in sufficient revenue to cover the prospective costs of producing that output or whether the revenue aimed at should cover, in addition, the uncovered part of the original cost of the old equipment.” 

“As is clear from our discussion of costs and prices it is the first alternative which is economically advantageous to the community; in other words, theundepreciatedpart of the old equipment, as it may be called in conventional accountancy language, should be written off.”

A firm operating in conditions of competition may have little choice but to adopt this policy because of the likelihood that other, competing firms which have taken advantage of the technical improvement will undersell.” 

“But if the firm possesses a high degree of monopoly it can, if it is so disposed, try to recoup the loss on the old equipment out of the revenue earned by the new, in which case the benefit conferred by the technical superiority of the new equipment is not being passed on to the community.

[ A. M. Milne and J. C. Laight, The Economics of Inland Transport, Sir Isaac Pitman & Sons [London: 1965], p. 232n, emphases added by C.]

C.:  When the rate of costs-of-production-reducing technological innovation in fixed capital plant and equipment accelerates beyond a certain degree, in an acceleration which is an internally self-caused, immanent, “lawful” feature of the competitive capitals-system, and in the context of the, also immanently caused, “lawfully” tendential, growing preponderance of fixed capital plant and equipment in the composition of, especially, the most centralized, most consolidated, most concentrated, most advanced industrial capitalist enterprises, owned or controlled by the plutocratic core of the capitalist ruling class, the above-prescribed write-offs of technodepreciated, incompletely-amortized fixed capital plant and equipment, tendentially rising in value and in frequency, accounting period after accounting period, netting-out against, and dragging down, profits, during those accounting periods, threaten to destroy the profitability of industrial capital, and to dethrone the reigning core of the capitalist ruling class. 

That ruling class will commit any amount of mass murder to avert the loss of their power
and of its "perks"! 

Russian/Chinese/Rockefeller Servant-dictator Basher Al-Asaad is -- comparatively speaking -- only a pip-squeal boy-scout, who doesn't hold a candle to the Rocke-Nazis when it comes to Stealth Eugenics mass murder, e.g., relative to the Rocke-Nazis designed diseases, designed depressions, contrived civil wars, their other mass-murderous Servant-Dictators, all over their Third World, etc., etc.  After all, hes only killed a few hundred thousand of his people [so far; but dont rush him; give him just a little more time [as the Rocke-Nazi-subservient U. S. government is so determined to do]!]:  He hasnt even murdered a mere million yet!

The response of that core ruling class to this threat? -- Eugenics . . .

IF you are hell-bent on suppressing the development of the social forces of [real] production, and you don't want a global alliance of the vast majority of humanity -- whose living standards will collapse as a result of that suppression -- to overthrow your vicious power forever -- THEN you have to murder millions of them pre-emptively.

By the Rocke-Nazis calculations -- as publicly proclaimed by them, again and again -- they have to kill off 90% to 95% of the human race, to stay in power, especially with fusion power on the technological horizon, despite all their efforts to de-industrialize the First World, to suppress industrialization in the Third World which their Servant-Dictators have created for them, to suppress suppress real science, real productive technology, and real science education, etc., etc.

The 1913 Federal Reserve Act, The 1913 Federal Income Tax, the 1914+ First World War, the 1930s Great Depression, State-Capitalist Totalitarianism [e.g., both Fascism and Stalinist pseudo-socialism], and [1939+] Second World War, the Military-Industrial Complexesof the US and the USSR, the ~1900+ suppression of industrialization in the Eastern European, Asian, South American, and African peripheries of the core countries of industrial capitalism [i.e., the UK, Western Europe, and the US core] -- the ~1900+ creation/imposition of the Third World -- the engineering and funding of neo-Eugenic, People Are Pollution, Pro-Genocide, PRO-HUMANOCIDE ideologies, the 2007+ Great Recession . . .   

Milne and Laight are quite right, in the quote above, to state that ruling class resistance to writing off the increasingly-recurring technodepreciation of their industrial fixed capital plant and equipment means that the benefit conferred by the technical superiority of the new equipment is not being passed on to the community.   

However, that ‘economic-ethical’ argument is of no value in convincing that ruling class to change its ways.   

Not passing the benefits of the growth of the social forces of production on to the larger community is the very core of the modus operandi of that core ruling class, from its very birth as such, by its perpetration of the vile social violence of original accumulation itself. 

3.:   We should perhaps at this point note that a firm whose capital is obtained mainly or wholly on a loan basis is in a much more vulnerable position financially than a firm which is financed largely or wholly by risk-capital.”

“Suppose a firm has purchased out of finance provided on a risk basis an equipment costing £10,000 and that, in the event, it is found that the results of the investment have fallen short of expectation. 

“The response of the public to the output produced with the aid of the equipment may have proved disappointing.” 

“Suppose that, taking this lower response into account, the firm estimates that an equipment of lower capacity costing £8,000 would have been a better proposition and that, when the original resource wears out, it should be replaced by this lower-capacity resource.”

“But on the original investment a loss will have been sustained, and this will fall to be borne by the providers of the risk-capital.”

“But, retaining the same illustration, now suppose that the finance were provided on a loan basis.”

“The loss will be the same but the loan out of which the original equipment was purchased will remain to the full amount a liability of the firm and the [C.:  principal and] interest payments [C.:  the “debt-service” payments] as fixed in the loan contract will still have to be met.”

“These interest payments, arising as they do from a past investment, while not representing costs in the economic sense, will be of the nature of financial charges which, if not met, may lead to the firm being received into bankruptcy.”

“It is evident that given the differing characteristics of loan- and risk- capital a firm financed by loan capital will be financially the more vulnerable in a situation where expectations fail to be fulfilled.

[A. M. Milne and J. C. Laight, The Economics of Inland Transport, Sir Isaac Pitman & Sons [London: 1965], pp. 191-192, emphases added by C.].

C.:  Not only does its acceptance of, e.g., Rocke-Nazibank loans -- loans from J. P. Morgan Chase, Citibank, Bank of America, etc. -- in place of “risk-capital”, e.g., the proceeds of capital equity stock sales, via IPOs, etc., place an enterprise in greater danger of failure and loss of ownership, e.g., when ‘technodepreciation hits’ [the example of the quote above is of lack of expected demand for commodity output, not of pre-amortization ‘technodepreciation’ of the producing equipment, but the two cases are parallel].   

Fixed capital plant and equipment purchased with the proceeds of loans may, if ‘technodepreciated’ prior to amortization, be scrapped and replaced with the new, state-of-the-art, competitive plant and equipment, but the debt service on the scrapped equipment still has to be paid, as well as the debt-service on the new plant and equipment, if it, too, was, once again, purchased via bank loans.   

Moreover, the Rocke-Nazi banks can offer loans on seemingly favorable terms, and then orchestrate “capital asset bubbles” -- through the method of “Capital Asset Bubble Engineering”, that was advanced by also-early-Hitler-supporter Joe Kennedy, when his Kennedy family was still in good standing with the Rockefellers, as one of their many -- subservient and grovelling -- lower plutocracy servant-families, like the Bush family of Hitler-financier Prescott Bush -- “bubbles” that result in the expropriation, by bankruptcy, of the original owners of these enterprises, and in the Rocke-Nazi “carpetbaggers” acquiring ownership of the thus-made-vulnerable, and, in effect, assassinated, firms, for the proverbial “pennies on the dollar”, so that the Rockefellers can shelveany technologies they see as threatening in terms of technodepreciation, etc.

The Psychohistorical Cause of the Innermost Ruling Class's ' "Eu"-genocidalism '. GLOBAL STRATEGIC HYPOTHESES.

To My Readers,

Pasted-in below:  Another key blog-entry, from elsewhere, that I think you will want to know about.

For Humanity,

M. Milankovitch

GLOBAL STRATEGIC HYPOTHESES:  In this blog, we have held that what F.E.D. terms technodepreciation -- the technological obsolescence self-depreciation continually ongoing within the total social fixed capital -- i.e., the self-devaluation of capital-value, ‘the self-negation of capital as capital’, is the fatal flaw of the capitalist system -- is the key to the historical dialectic of capital, to the ever-intensifying global crises of capitalism, and to the lawful destiny of the capitalist/world market system as a whole.

We have held that the process of technodepreciation is the key to the cause of the turning point from the global ascendance phase to the global descendance phase of the capitals system, as an historical totality.

We have held that the emerging ruling class consciousness of the process of technodepreciation, ever-worsening in its consequences for their interests as the competitive accumulation of capital proceeds, is the psychohistorical cause of the degeneration of the descendant phase capitalist ruling class into anti-progress, anti-productive forces growth, pro-contracted social reproduction, ‘‘‘humanocidal’’’ ideologies -- which are both anti-science, and anti-technology, to the extent that science and technology are used to advance the social forces of production, to raise human living standards, versus when science and technology for police state surveillance, for preparation for war, for actual wars, and for ever the “innovation” of ever more destructive weapons of mass destruction.  

Ruling class fear of the de facto overthrow of their power by capital[ist] technodepreciation is, we have held, especially the motive force, for their planned humanocide, and for their already globally underway stealth eugenics genocides, with regard to the ruling core of the descendance phase capitalist ruling class -- in particular, the petroleum/finance plutocracy, centered around the Rockefeller ‘ “Eu”-genics ‘ “Family” Political Machine [the Rockefeller Foundations; predominant influence within Exxon-Mobil, J. P. Morgan Chase Bank, Citibank, Bank of America, New York Council on Foreign Relations, Trilateral Commission, Federal Reserve, U. S. Federal Government Executive Branch, UN, IMF, World Bank, ITO, AMA, Southern Baptist Church, etc.] with regard to their fear of the world-market negation of their petroleum industry capital that would be caused by the advent of fusion power.

That is, we have held that ruling class consciousness of technodepreciationis the psychohistorical cause of the “Eu”-genocidal ruling class ideologies of their descendance phase -- ‘‘‘humanocidal’’’ ideologies ofCapitalist Anti-Capitalism, of Human Anti-Humanism, and of Anti-Marxian Marxianism, i.e., to the turn of the strategy of that ruling class toward the goals of productive forces growth reversal, hence of 95% global population reduction/ destruction, publicly “justified” on the basis of pseudo-ecological excuses, which make that ruling class a threat to the survival of the working/“middle” class, i.e., of the growing majority of humanity, globally:  a threat to the survival of global humanity; :  a threat to the survival of the human species entire.

Because the dialectical-scientific work of Karl Marx, toward elucidating “the [political-]economic law of motion of modern society”, is the starting point of the theory of capitalism’s developing self-demise presented herein, it would be right to ask ¿What does Karl Marx have to say on the subject of the process that we name technodepreciation?

The purpose of this series is to address that question.


. . .

Part 1.  Marx on Technodepreciation.  Introductory Passages. 

Let us begin our examination and consideration of Marx’s writings, bearing on the topic of technodepreciation, with Marx’s general statement, from the «Grundrisse», on the ‘meta-dynamics’ of the self-imposed demise of that historically-specific human social system founded, and foundered, upon “the capital relation” as predominating “social relation of production” --

...the development of the productive forces brought about by the historical development of capital itself, when it reaches a certain stage, suspends [i.e., “«aufheben»”-negates -- M.D.] the self-realization of capital itself, instead of positing it.   

“Beyond a certain point, the development of the powers of production becomes a barrier for capital; hence the capital relation a barrier for the development of the productive powers of labor.”   

“When it has reached this point, capital, i.e. wage labor, enters into the same relation towards the development of social wealth and of the forces of production as the guild system, serfdom, slavery, and is necessarily stripped off as a fetter.” 

The last form of servitude assumed by human activity, that of wage labor on one side, capital on the other, is thereby cast off like a skin, and this casting-off is itself the result of the mode of production corresponding to capital; the material and mental conditions of the negation of wage labor and of capital, themselves already the negation of earlier forms of unfree social production, are themselves the result of its production process.” 

“The growing incompatibility between the productive development of society and its hitherto existing relations of production expresses itself in bitter contradictions, crises, spasms.”

“The violent destruction of capital, not by relations external to it, but rather as a condition of its self-preservation, is the most striking form in which advice is given it to be gone and to give room to a higher state of social production...

“Hence the highest development of productive power together with the greatest expansion of existing wealth will coincide with depreciation of capital, degradation of the laborer, and a most straitened exhaustion of his vital powers.”

“These contradictions lead to explosions, cataclysms, crises, in which, by momentaneous suspension of all labor and annihilation of a great portion of capital the latter is violently reduced to the point where it can go on fully employing its productive powers without committing suicide.”

“Yet these regularly recurring catastrophes lead to their repetition on a higher scale and finally to its violent overthrow. [pp. 749-750].

[Karl Marx, Grundrisse:  Foundations of the Critique of Political Economy (Rough Draft), translated by Martin Nicolaus, Penguin Books [Middlesex: 1973], emphases added by M.D.].

The above passage does not address technodepreciationdirectly.

But it does address ‘‘‘the depreciation / destruction of capital[-value]’’’ as an element of the “crises” of the capitals-system -- those regularly recurring catastrophes [like the one that Terran humanity is presently suffering through -- openly, ever since 2007 C.E.], that “lead to their repetition on a higher scale and finally to its [i.e., to the capital-relation’s -- M.D.] violent overthrow [of “the capital relation” as predominating human production-relation -- M.D.].”  

One would hope that the violence of the predicted “violent overthrow” of “the capital-relation” as predominating “social relation of production” can be mitigated in a world polity that has achieved some advancing degree of formal, representative democracy, as Marx too envisioned, in a latter statement.  But that remains to be seen.

Technodepreciation of capital -- “destruction”, “depreciation”, and “annihilation” of older capital-value, of past-accumulated fixed capital-value -- is caused by the growth of the social forces of production, also driven by the capital-relation -- by what amounts, in its most general result, to the growth of human societal self-productivity, or of the human societal ‘‘‘self-force’’’ of the self-expanding self-reproduction of human society.

In this passage, Marx attributes the cause of capitalist crises -- with their concomitant “destruction”, “depreciation”, and “annihilation” of capital-value -- ultimately to the growth of the social forces of production fostered by capital itself.

Marx does not make explicit the detailed mechanism(s) of this “destruction”, “depreciation”, and “annihilation” in this passage, except in that, once a crisis breaks out, “momentaneous suspension” of much of production, and of much of the social economic process as a whole, at least furthers this “destruction”, “depreciation”, and “annihilation” of capital-value.

¿But could there be a connection, in Marx’s theory, and in reality, between ongoing, gradual productive force growth induced technodepreciation of capital-value, and aperiodic capitalist crises, with their sudden and intensified manifestation of capital-value “destruction”?

The passage above does not even explicitly address, let alone answer, this question. 

But it does, at least from our point of view, implicitly pose this question.

Let us therefore consider some other passages, in which Marx more closely verges upon our question, and upon its answer.

The following passage, again from the «Grundrisse», describes a general economic “law” of depreciation of “products” values in general, as a consequence of the growth of social productivity/of “the social forces of production”, without yet explicitly applying this “law” to the “capital” species of value --

... the general economic law [is] that the costs of production constantly decline, that living labor becomes constantly more productive, hence that the labor time objectified in products constantly depreciates ... 
[p. 135].

[Karl Marx, Grundrisse, ibid., emphases added by M.D.].

In the next passage, the application of this law of ‘productivity-devaluation’ to capital-value is explicit --

... The constantly ongoing devaluation of capital, owing to the increase in the force of production, has to be compensated ... [p. 317].

[Karl Marx, Grundrisse, ibid., emphases added by M.D.].

This passage is in the context of describing the necessity of positive profits to the [continued] existence of a capital-based system of human social reproduction. 

But this passage does not explicitly address the question as to whether a growing proportion of profit allocated to this ‘“compensation”’ of the constantly ongoing devaluation of capital, owing to the increase in the force of production, i.e., the use of a growing proportion of profits to offset growing “write-offs” of the book value of technodepreciated fixed capital assets [which figure as increments of capital loss expense, netting out against revenues, in the accounting period, and in the periodic profit/loss statement, in which they are recognized], and, consequently, the allocation of that growing proportion of profit away from other uses of profit, could manifest as a secular fall in the accounting rate of profits, or as a secular fall in the rate of return on fixed capital investments.

The next passage is even more explicit about this constant devaluation of the existing capital, caused by capital’s increasing [of] the force of production, and about where, in Marx’s systematic-dialectical method of presentation of his theory of capital[ism], the consideration of this technodepreciation phenomenon belongs --

... Looked at precisely, that is, the realization process of capital -- and money becomes capital only through the realization process -- appears at the same time as its devaluation process [Entwertungs-prozess], its demonetization. 

And this in two respects. 

First, to the extent that capital does not increase absolute labor-time but rather decreases the relative, necessary labor time, by increasing the force of production, to that extent does it reduce the costs of its own production -- in so far as it was presupposed as a certain sum of commodities, reduces its exchange value:  one part of the capital on hand is constantly devalued owing to a decrease in the costs of production at which it can be reproduced;  not because of a decrease in the amount of labor objectified in it, but because of a decease in the amount of living labor which it is henceforth necessary to objectify in this specific product. 

This constant devaluation of the existing capital does not belong here, since it already presupposes capital as completed. 

It is merely to be noted here in order to indicate how later developments are already contained in the general concept of capital.

Belongs in the doctrine of the concentration and competition of capitals. [pp. 402-403].

[Karl Marx, Grundrisse, ibid., emphases added by M.D.].

This passage perhaps explains why Marx, in the four volumes of his great treatise -- Capital, A Critique of Political Economy. -- refers to, invokes, or describes the process that we call technodepreciation relatively rarely, even in his vol. III exposition of the law of the tendency of the rate of profit to fall, the fatal flaw of the capitals-system, that he himself discovered:  the process of technodepreciation is a [world-]market-based, competition-enforced process.

Marx’s original method and plan for his systematic-dialectical presentation of his dialectical, immanent critique of the capitalist-ideology-compromised science of classical political economy, published in his first book-length exposition of his critique of political economy, his 1859 book entitled A Contribution to the Critique of Political Economy, called for, not four, but six volumes, with the following titles, in the following order --

1: Capital

2: Landed Property

3: Wage-Labor

4: the State

5: Foreign Trade

6: World Market and Crises.

The first “volume”, entitled Capital, was to set forth “the general concept of capital”, or of “Capital in general”. 

The phrase “presupposes capital as completed” probably refers to Marx’s view that “later developments”, like the [world-]market-based, competition-enforced process of technodepreciation, could only be properly, dialectically addressed, to Marx’s “audience”, after the presentation of “the general concept of capital” was already in place, i.e., only after the first “volume”, Capital, had been completed, and assimilated by Marx’s “audience”.

In numerous passages of the «Grundrisse», and of Capital, volumes I-IV, where Marx characterizes certain portions of those text’s contents as anticipating “the doctrine of the concentration and competition of capitals, Marx indicates that this content is to be fully developed only in the final, World Market and Crises, “volume”.

But the four volumes -- of Capital, A Critique of Political Economy. -- that we actually have from Marx [and from Engels, who brought volumes II and III to readiness for publication after Marx’s death] are all parts of just the first planned “volume”, the “volume” entitled Capital.

So we never got Marx’s full, systematic[-dialectical] rendition of ‘technodepreciation’, and of its connection [if any, but we hold that it would have been the key] to capitalist crises, that “belonged” in/to the final planned “volume”, the “volume” that was to have been entitled World Market and Crises.

Of all of the extant, posthumously-published manuscripts by Marx, it is the «Grundrisse» [English translation:  Foundation] -- the “Foundation” draft for Marx’s entire planned “Critique of Political Economy” -- that comes closest to providing a sketch toward all six of the originally planned “volumes”.  [It is possible that the extant but still unpublished manuscript by Marx, entitled The Money System as a Whole, might come closer still].

The account of the capital-system’s lawful ‘‘‘evolutionary dynamics’’’ and ‘revolutionary meta-dynamics’ that Marx presents in the four volumes of Capital does not focus on the mechanisms and processes of the enforcement of capital’s laws by the competition among individual capitals. 

Instead, Marx presents an “inner”, “immanent”, “internal”, ‘essence-ial’, ‘concept-ual’, law-of-value logic of capital’s [meta-]dynamics, viz. --

... Conceptually, competition is nothing other than the inner nature of capital, its essential character, appearing in and realized as the reciprocal interaction of many capitals with one another, the inner tendency as external necessity. ...

Capital exists and can only exist as many capitals, and its self-determination therefore appears as their reciprocal interaction with one another). [pp. 413-414].

[Karl Marx, Grundrisse:  Foundations of the Critique of Political Economy (Rough Draft), translated by Martin Nicolaus, Penguin Books [Middlesex: 1973], emphases added by M.D.].

-- and again --

Competition generally, this essential locomotive force of the bourgeois economy, does not establish its laws, but is rather their executor. 

Unlimited competition is therefore not the presupposition for the truth of the economic laws, but rather the consequence -- the form of appearance in which their necessity realizes itself. 

For the economists to presuppose, as does Ricardo, that unlimited competition exists is to presuppose the full reality and realization of the bourgeois relations of production in their [M.D.:  historically-]specific and distinct character. 

Competition therefore does not explain these laws; rather, it lets them be seen, but does not produce them. [p. 552].

[Karl Marx, Grundrisse:  Foundations of the Critique of Political Economy (Rough Draft), translated by Martin Nicolaus, Penguin Books [Middlesex: 1973], emphases added by M.D.].

Nevertheless, all of those scruples of the systematic-dialectical method of presentation notwithstanding, telling clues to and hints of Marx’s ultimate theory of World Market [Competition], [Global Economic] Crisis, and the resulting Transition to Political-Economic Democracy, are sprinkled throughout the four volumes of Capital.

Below is a minimal sampling from them, selected with regard to the topic of this blog-entry --

[Vol. II]:  As the magnitude of the value and the durability of the applied fixed capital develop with the development of the capitalist mode of production, the lifetime of industry and of industrial capital lengthens in each particular field of investment to a period of many years, say ten years on average.”

“Whereas the development of fixed capital extends the length of this life on the one hand it is shortened on the other by the continuous revolution in the means of production, which likewise incessantly gains momentum with the development of the capitalist mode of production.”

“This involves a change in the means of production and the necessity of their constant replacement, on account of moral depreciation, long before they expire physically.”  

“One may assume that in the essential branches of modern industry this life-cycle now averages ten years.” 

“However we are not concerned here with the exact figure.” 

“This much is evident:  the cycle of interconnected turnovers embracing a number of years, in which capital is held fast by its fixed constituent part, furnishes a material basis for the periodic crises.”

“True, periods in which capital is invested differ greatly and far from coincide in time.”

“But a crisis always forms the starting point of large new investments.” 

“Therefore, from the point of view of society as a whole, more or less, a new material basis for the next turnover cycle.  [pp. 185-186].

[Karl Marx, Capital:  Volume II, International Publishers [New York: 1967] ], emphases added by M.D.].

This passage even connects, though it does not yet fully explicate, the phenomenon of capitalist economic crisis and the uniquely capitalist phenomenon of technodepreciation [“moral depreciation”]. 

The next passage connects the process of technodepreciation with the law of the tendency of the rate of  profit to fall, but in a dual referential context, which cites the contradictory role thereof, in both causing the fall of the general rate of profit, and in slowing it down, but which does not delineate in detail the differential mechanisms of this dual role --

[Vol. III]:  Given the rate [M.D.:  of profit], the absolute increase in the mass of capital depends on its existing magnitude.

“But, on the other hand, if this magnitude is given, the proportion of its growth, i.e., the rate of its increment, depends on the rate of profit.” 

The increase in the productiveness (which, moreover, we repeat, always goes hand in hand with a depreciation of the available capital) can directly only increase the value of existing capital if by raising the rate of profit it increases that portion of the value of the annual product which is reconverted into capital.” 

“As concerns the productivity of labor, this can occur (since this productivity has nothing direct to do with the value of the existing capital) by raising the relative surplus-value, or reducing the value of the constant capital, so that the commodities which enter the reproduction of labor-power, or the elements of constant capital, are cheapened.” 

“Both imply a depreciation of existing capital, and both go hand in hand with a reduction of the variable capital in relation to the constant.  Both cause a fall in the rate of profit, and both slow it down.  [p. 248]

[Karl Marx, Capital:  Volume III, International Publishers [New York: 1967] ], emphases added by M.D.].

Again, we hold that Marx’s plan would have led him to intend to detail, and thereby to differentiate, such mechanisms of this causation, and/versus of this ‘dilatorization’, in the final, climactic “volume” -- the planned “volume” on the World Market, on Global Competition, on Global Economic Crises, and on the Global Revolutionary Transition to the human social system / ‘‘‘attractor’’’ beyond capitalism.

This expectation extends even to Marx’s ‘‘‘dual’’’ expression, in volume III of Capital, of the ultimately fatal dialectical internal self-contradiction , or intra-duality, immanent to the capitals-system, in its most general l formulation, in which the process and the “dynamic” of technodepreciation inheres --

[Vol. III]:  The contradiction, to put it in a very general way, consists in that the capitalist mode of production involves a tendency towards the absolute development of the productive forces, regardless of the value and surplus-value it contains, and regardless of the social conditions under which capitalist production takes place; while, on the other hand, its aim is to preserve the value of the existing capital and promote its self-expansion to the highest limit (i.e., to promote an ever more rapid growth of this value). 

The specific feature about it is that it uses the existing value of capital as a means of increasing this value to the utmost. 

The methods by which it accomplishes this include the fall of the rate of profit, the depreciation of existing capital, and the development of the productive forces of labor at the expense of already created productive forces.  [p. 249]

[Karl Marx, Capital:  Volume III, International Publishers [New York: 1967] ], emphases added by M.D.].

These contradictory, diametrically opposing tendencies of the capitals system, (1) unrestricted growth of the productive forces, and/versus (2) unrestricted growth of the accumulated monetary value of the global total social capital, cannot both be fulfilled -- as expressed [a]periodically, in the outbreak of horribly destructive global economic crises [and wars, and genocides, etc.], as well as ultimately, in the global revolutionary transition to full, political-economic democracy.

The next passage connects what we term technodepreciation to Marx’s theory of the progressive rise in the “organic composition” of capital, which resides at the heart of Marx’s “inner”, “immanent”, “internal”, ‘essence-ial’, ‘concept-ual’, ‘law-of-value-logic-al’ exposition of the capital-fatal “law of the tendency of the rate of profit to fall”, as presented before the outer, more concrete, more detailed market-competition-mechanisms of this law can be properly presented, e.g., in “volume” 6 --

[Vol. IV]:  With the growth in the proportion of constant capital to variable capital [M.D.:  c/v  up, i.e., growth in “the organic composition of capital”, reflecting the progressive growth in the “technical composition of capital”, as approximately measured by the value-ratio c/v], grows also the productivity of labor, the productive forces brought into being, with which social labor operates. 

As a result of this increasing productivity of labor, however, a part of the existing constant capital is continuously depreciated in value, for its [M.D.:  present] value depends not on the labor-time that it cost originally, but on the labor-time with which it can be reproduced [M.D.:  presently], and this is continuously diminishing as the productivity of labor grows.

Although, therefore, the value of the constant capital does not increase in proportion to its amount [M.D.:  E.g., in proportion to its physical mass], it increases nevertheless, because its amount increases even more rapidly than its value falls.
[pp. 415-416].

[Karl Marx, Capital:  Volume IV (Theories of Surplus-Value), Part II, Progress Publishers [Moscow: 1968] ], emphases added by M.D.]. 

However, this passage presents the technodepreciation of the [fixed capital component of the constant capital, especially], as a contributor to the slowing down, not to the speeding up, of the fall in the general rate of profit on capital, at least in its formal, algebraic presentation. 

That is, given the Marxian rate of profit formula, p.r.  =  s’/(c + v), and multiplying both its numerator and its denominator by 1 in the form of (1/v) / (1/v), we obtain an equivalent, but more revealing, expression for the Marxian rate of profit -- more revealing with respect to the role of the “organic composition of capital”, (c/v), in the “algebraic causation” of the fall in the rate of profit:  (s’/v) / ( (c/v) + 1 ).

That profit-rate ratio rises in overall magnitude if the impact of the increase in the “rate of [esp. of the  “relative”, vs. the “absolute”] surplus-value”, (s’/v) -- due to the growth of the societal-[self-re-]productive forces -- outdoes the impact of the rise in the “organic/technical composition of capital”, (c/v) -- also due to the growth of the societal-[self-re-]productive forces -- on the magnitude of the ratio as a whole.   

That profit-rate ratio falls in overall magnitude if the impact of the increase in the “rate of surplus-value”, (s’/v) -- due to the growth of the societal-[self-re-]productive force -- in the numerator of the ratio, therefore tending to increase the magnitude of the ratio as a whole, is outdone by the impact of the rise in the “organic/technical composition of capital”, (c/v) -- also due to the growth of the societal-[self-re-]productive force -- in the denominator of that ratio, thus tending to decrease the magnitude of the ratio as a whole.

Therefore, to the extent that ‘productive-force-increase-induced-depreciation’, or technodepreciation, of constant capital, c, ensues, it checks the fall in the Marxian rate of profit to some degree.

There are also several other, more “thought-concrete” passages among the four volumes of Capital, describing the process of technodepreciation in language closer to that of an outer, “surface of society” description, that emphasize only one side of the impact of that process on the profit rate as measured by capitalist accounting practices.

These passages emphasize the fact that write-offs of the still-unamortized book-value of “morally depreciated” -- technodepreciated -- fixed capital plant and equipment, in the accounting periods after the accounting period in which the loss due to premature retirement of plant and equipment is recognized, reducing profit for that accounting period to some degree, and even, in some cases -- especially as the fixed capital component of total capital increasingly predominates as a portion of total capital -- inducing a net loss, a negative profit, for that accounting period, on the contrary, raises the rate of profit-return on fixed capital value in those subsequent accounting periods, by reducing the magnitude of the denominator of that ‘‘‘rate of return on capital invested’’’ ratio, precisely y the amount of that book-value write-off, in each subsequent accounting period.

These passages one-sidedly ignore the one-period, write-off-induced rate of profit fall, or loss, and emphasize only the subsequent accounting periods’ rate of profit rise-contribution.

But, in the “going concern” of the capitals political-economy, as Marx -- more than any other, and rightly so -- so frequently and so rigorously emphasized, those “individual” accounting periods, in which competition-enforced write-offs of prematurely retired -- e.g., scrapped because no longer competitive -- fixed capital plant and equipment continue to recur, even at an accelerating pace, and even with a rising absolute magnitude of write-off losses, as the fixed capital composition of total capital, and the velocity of competition-driven technological development, incarnated in new vintages of fixed capital plant and equipment, continue to accelerate. 

Such continual writing-off of technodepreciation costs against profits can amount to -- and have amounted -- to a secular fall in the capitalistically-accounted rates of profit, as well as the Marxian rates of profit, especially before “special measures” -- e.g., such as the Federal Reserve’s” management of an historically exponential rate of inflation, world wars, and massive “peace-time” “investments” in the unproductive-or-destructive/anti-productive “capital” “goods” of the national-capitalist military-industrial complexes -- are imposed by the capitalist ruling class.

However, there are also a few key passages among the four volumes of Capital that clearly emphasize the loss side of technodepreciation, for capital, and for capitalists, including the following two --      

[Vol. IV]:  Thus Ricardo’s ruthlessness was not only scientifically honest but also a scientific necessity from his point of view. 

But because of this it is also quite immaterial to him whether the advance of the productive forces slays landed property or workers. 

If this progress devalues the capital of the industrial bourgeoisie it is equally welcome to him. 

If the development of the productive power of labor halves the value of the existing fixed capital, what does it matter, says Ricardo. 

The productivity of human labor has doubled. 

Thus here is scientific honesty. 

Ricardo’s conception is, on the whole, in the interests of the industrial bourgeoisie, only because, and in so far as, their interests coincide with that of production or the productive development of human labor. 

Where the bourgeoisie comes into conflict with this, he is just as ruthless towards it as he is at other times toward the proletariat and the aristocracy. [p. 118].

[Karl Marx, Capital:  Volume IV (Theories of Surplus-Value), Part II, Progress Publishers [Moscow: 1968] ], emphases added by M.D.].

The passage above, in its third through fifth sentences, clearly emphasizes the “downside” of technodepreciation for the capitalist class, and the progress of the social productive forces as the cause of this technodepreciation, and, implicitly, as the necessary core of human progress itself, both before, during, and after the capitalist epoch.

The passage below, the final passage for this blog-entry, even more clearly and ‘thought-concretely’, explicates the anti-profit, loss implications of technodepreciation for the individual capitalist --

Suppose, a certain line of capitalist industry produces a normal unit of its commodity under the following conditions:  The wear and tear of fixed capital amounts to 1/2 shilling per piece; raw and auxiliary materials go into it to the amount of 17 1/2 shillings per piece; wages, 2 shillings; surplus-value, 2 shillings at a rate of surplus-value of 100%. Total value = 22 shillings.  We assume for the sake of simplicity that the capital in this line of production has the average composition of social capital, so that the price of production of the commodity is identical with its value, and the profit of the capitalist with the created surplus-value.  Then the cost-price of the commodity = 1/2 + 17 1/2 + 2  =  20s., the average rate of profit 2/20 = 10%, and the price of production per piece of the commodity, like its value = 22s.”

Suppose a machine is invented which reduces by half the living labour required per piece of the commodity, but trebles that portion of its value accounted for by wear and tear of the fixed capital.” 

In that case, the calculation is:  wear and tear = 1 1/2 sh., raw and auxiliary materials, as before, 17 1/2 sh., wages 1sh., surplus-value 1sh., total 21sh.” 

The commodity then falls 1sh. in value; the new machine has certainly increased the productivity of labour.” 

But the capitalist sees the matter as follows:  his cost-price is now 1 1/2 s. for wear, 17 1/2 s. for raw and auxiliary materials, 1sh. for wages, total 20s., as before.” 

Since the [Ed.:  general] rate of profit is not immediately altered by the new machine, he will receive 10% over his cost-price, that is, 2s.” 

The price of production, then, remains unaltered = 20s., but is 1s. above the value.”

For a society producing under capitalist conditions the commodity has not cheapened.” 

The new machine is no improvement for it.” 

The capitalist is, therefore, not interested in introducing it.” 

And since its introduction would make his present, not as yet worn-out, machinery simply worthless, would turn it into scrap-iron, hence would cause a POSITIVE LOSS, he takes good care not to commit this, what is for him a utopian mistake.”

The law of increased productivity of labour is not, therefore, absolutely valid for capital.”

“So far as capital is concerned, productiveness does not increase through a saving in living labour in general, but only through a saving in the paid portion of living labour, as compared to labour expended in the past, as we have already indicated in passing in Book I ... [M.D.:   for this, see English edition, Capital I, Ch. XV, 2, pp. 392-393].” 

Here the capitalist mode of production is beset with another CONTRADICTION.”

“Its historical mission is unconstrained development in geometrical progression of the productivity of human labour.”

It goes back on its mission whenever, as here, it CHECKS the development of productivity.”

It thus demonstrates again that it is becoming senile and that it is more and more OUTLIVED.

The eleventh text-unit of the passage above makes the periodic profit-rate-reducing, loss exacerbating side of technodepreciation explicitly clear, for its -- essentially generic or universal -- hypothetical case.

¿So, could technodepreciation-induced secular fall in the industrial capital rate of profit represent the “outer”, [world-]market/competition-enforced, expression of the --

(s’/v) / ( (c/v) + 1 )

-- relative-dearth-of-living-labor[ v]-as-sole-source-of-profit-sourcing-surplus-value’, “inner”, expression of the induction of “the tendency of the rate of profit to fall”?

¿Could the technodepreciation of, and the consequent scrapping/write-off of, fixed-capital plant and equipment of -- especially of advanced-technology-embodying fixed capital -- be the ‘“outer face”’ of an ‘“inner face”’ of the “law of the tendency of the rate of profit to fall”, expressed by the ‘growing relative depletion of surplus-value producing living labor’ in the production mix, reflected in the growth of the ‘‘‘technical/organic composition of capital’’’, reflected in the rising magnitude of the (c/v) ratio?

¿Could the vanishing of the capital-value of accumulated but obsolete fixed capital be the “outer” expression of the relative vanishing of living workers as a component of industrial productive capital as the “inner” expression, of the ‘self-braking’ of the rate of capital accumulation, originally expressed as a secular fall in the rate of profit on industrial capital? . . .”
