Why capitalism was renamed into "market economy"


We live today in society which from the point of view of his social and economic device it is possible to call capitalism unambiguously. It is such model of society in which enrichment is considered the prime target of human life (accumulation, a capital increment). And the objectives can be achieved in any ways, even such which break and trample on elementary moral standards and morality. This society in which are spread spirit of consumerism, egoism, individualism, cruelty. Society in which the principle of Homo homini lupus est works ("Dog eat dog"). In the West capitalism has succeeded that society which in textbooks is usually called feudalism. Actually distinctive feature of that traditional society was domination of Christian norms of life which constrained development in the person of animal instincts, didn't allow him to turn into a wolf. If to count from the first bourgeois revolutions (in Holland in the second half of the 16th century and in England in the second half of the 17th century), then to capitalism there are about four centuries. For these centuries he has fully shown the misanthropic, one may say, devilish nature. Even the most ardent supporters of capitalism (those who were especially obsessed with passion of enrichment) tried not to focus attention on his negative sides. Somehow "to improve" and justify capitalism, the main beneficiaries of bourgeois revolutions (capitalist oligarchs of that time) began to encourage development of "science" necessary to them. Rapid development of philosophy, political economy, sociology which began to carry out "social orders" of bourgeois "owners of life" has begun. In particular, among political house-keepers of that time it is British William Petty, Adam Smith, David Ricardo. On the one hand, works of these "scientists" had to promote destruction of traditional values of Christianity which interfered with development of the capitalist relations. It was done everything possible in order that to replace the spiritual power of church with the authority of so-called science which actually was slightly camouflaged sect. On the other hand, the so-called science had to justify and prove capitalism, highlight his advantages. But even the most ardent apologists of capitalism of that time have been forced to recognize these or those "imperfections", "shortcomings", capitalism "costs". Like, capitalism as a way of the organization of society isn't ideal, but other forms of society are even less ideal. Or in general are awful. So, during Modern times the legend of "the gloomy Middle Ages" which for the modern unsophisticated person, unfortunately, already became an axiom began to be created. By the 19th century horrors, anti-human nature of capitalism were shown so obviously that his unscrupulous apologetics became difficult. Moreover, the genre of publicistic and even "scientific" criticism of capitalism has appeared. His adherents at least offered entering of serious amendments into the existing capitalism and as at most, his change with other system. The most popular alter
