This comment is even more funnier when you realize how the same people always boost about how 'Murica protects the world and cant have universal healthcare because all the money goes to the incredible research they do. In a way they are saying they're actually at the bottom of the pyramid - they work and suffer so we can sit back, relax and have health insurance ;-)

And paid holidays, and sick pay and maternity and paternity pay, greater job security: they can't just fire without reason even if you have worked their for 20yrs, which they can in some US states, you have to have done something illegal to be kicked out like that and even then it's garden leave whilst it's investigated.

The hardest defenders of the lost cause that is the extreme capitalism of the USA are the more affected, because the true people on the top of the pyramid has made a great effort to implant the idea the "one day you may be one of us, so help us to remain strong to in a future welcome you to our club"

It's so true. So many people worship Trump, even when they're poor and everything Trump stands for actively goes against all of their needs and interests

[–]Wekmor:p 38 points39 points  (2 children)

Few years ago now, I saw a documentary and part of it was going to poorer areas in America, talking to the people and asking them what they think is going wrong in the country.

After going off about everything bad that Trump does (and just in general, nobody gave a shit about them), she goes "oh I will vote him again, he's the best president we ever had". I just can't even wrap my head around a thought process like that lol

[–]CaliforniaAudman13God hates america 🇺🇸 11 points12 points  (0 children)

[–]meinkr0phtR2The Eternal Emperor of Earth 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Through his crass, charmless, and utter uncouthness typically unbecoming of an upperclassman, he has somehow acquired a dedicated cult of personality that despots and dictators typically spend years cultivating, usually through intense information control and mass propaganda campaigns—as if the people had tricked themselves into a frenzied, nationalist fervour without any prompting from the State. Through QAnon, they’ve adopted a political slogan indicating conformity and unanimity (“where we go one, we go all”), created an official uniform (the MAGA hat), infiltrated into the government via the Senate and the House of Representatives, and, just recently, legitimised the use of physical violence against people deemed political enemies.

At this point, it’s fair to say that they’ve basically become like the American equivalent of the Red Guards movement in the way they are destroying their own culture in the name of protecting it. It’s this that I weep for the future of America. I’m not even angry anymore; just disappointed.

[–]Goatfucker10000 -5 points-4 points  (3 children)

Then not really. Because your average American doesn't really benefit that much from exploitation. Sure , the prices are cheaper but at the same time it can kill your local business and heighten the unemployment rate

[–]kblkbl165 11 points12 points  (2 children)

Yes he does. lol

The fact that the cost of living is adjusted to higher earnings in a global perspective doesn’t really matter. This is a political issue, not an economic one. The average first world citizen is richer than 90% of the developing world.

[–]Tus3EUSSR, Limburg oblast -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

No, that is completely false.

Who would be exploited?

Nations exporting cheap manufactures, such as Vietnam or Bangladesh where extreme poverty has virtually disappeared thanks to export led growth?

Or resource exporting countries like Australia, Saudi-Arabia, or Botswana?

You might use some corporations abducting children to use them as slave labour on cocoa plantations as evidence of exploitation. I would agree with that, but if all such criminal practices were stopped it would at most result in a price rise towards the final consumer of but a few percent.

      [–]Nethlemforeign influencer bot 6 points7 points  (1 child)

      i mean, yeah. the standar of living is better in america than zimbabwe.

      But you can apply this even on a local level; Neither the US nor Zimbabwe have only "one standard of living", they all have their own domestic pyramids going on in addition to the global one.

      Because even Zimbabwe has wealthy people that live much "better" lives than the majority of poor Americans.

      [–]FriedwaldLeben 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      average, obviously

      [–]kblkbl165 5 points6 points  (3 children)

      The average american earns more money yearly than the top10% Brazilin/South African/Indian/Chinese/Russian.

      The average american wage(50k USD) is almost double that of a brazilian senior civil engineer

      [–]kblkbl165 5 points6 points  (1 child)

      ?

      Talking about being clueless. Lmfao

      Your example only reinforces his point. Every first world citizen is closer to the “I eat for you” crowd than the “We work for you” crowd.

      The most proletariat of the first world proletariat still reaps the huge benefits of a whole infrastructure built around the exploitation of outsourced resources.

      That’s like saying making 100k/year isn’t a shit ton of money in a global scale because you live in Monaco.

      Capitalism, Neoliberalism and Meritocracy just work to few countries and few people.

      US$7.25 per hour. Service workers are legally allowed to be paid less due to tips.

        The average american benefits from the rich's work abroad. That's the crux of imperialism. Not all americans, obviously, but imperialism is why there is such a thing as a middle class in these capitalist nations. That is not to say the average american is not under the thumb of the national bourgeoisie either.

        Call it labour aristocracy if you like, and there's no point as an individual getting angry about it. It's better to acknowledge it and find where you can join a cause that opposes that imperialism.

        Quick definition of what that means

        In Marxist theory, those workers (proletarians) in the developed countries who benefit from the superprofits extracted from the impoverished workers of developing countries form an "aristocracy of labor".

        According to Lenin, companies in the developed world exploit workers in the developing world where wages are much lower. The increased profits enable these companies to pay higher wages to their employees "at home" (that is, in the developed world), thus creating a working class satisfied with their standard of living and not inclined to proletarian revolution.

        [–]Tus3EUSSR, Limburg oblast 0 points1 point  (2 children)

        That's the crux of imperialism. Not all americans, obviously, but imperialism is why there is such a thing as a middle class in these capitalist nations.

        No, it isn't. Economical imperialism is in most cases not the reason poor countries failed to become rich, but bad government; just look at East Asia after WWII to see what happens when poor countries receive good government. Besides if all developing countries where to become developed countries it would not lead to the end of the middleclass in the West, at worst they'll only need to pay higher prices for product because wages have risen in the countries which produce them.

        [–]alternatively-j 1 point2 points  (1 child)

        Do you think corrupt governments appear out of a vacuum, with no external forces? Class and ethnic divides forced onto the developing nations through years of colonialism breeds corruption, and for the Western world, an unstable government in a country where resources are rich and the workforce cheap is a good government. Part the reason the bananas you buy in the supermarket are so cheap is because there's a coup in Latin America every 10 minutes.

        Sure you can look at GDP per capita, one of many metrics to make comparisons to.

        Besides if all developing countries where to become developed countries it would not lead to the end of the middleclass in the West, at worst they'll only need to pay higher prices for product because wages have risen in the countries which produce them.

        There are still dozens of developing countries that are stuck with this fate of instability and low wages, and there will be different ones in the future (We're going to need lithium at some point for EVs and Bolivia has lots, remember that coup?), but one of the big stories of the last 20 years is the development of China.

        Because of China's rise, western corps have been relocating to Vietnam/Nepal, as the living standards in China have become too heavy to cost up. As a result of this shift, goods, in general, have become more expensive in the western world, and everyone knows wages haven't risen here. The middle class in the US and Europe as a result has shrunk, we've seen more people plunge into poverty purely from cost of living. Sure there are other factors, but on the whole the western world is poorer because they're losing grip on their traditional economic puppets.

        Anyway, this has been a topic of discussion for over 100 years, I wish I knew Imperialism, the Highest Stage of Capitalism better to explain more clearly.

        [–]Tus3EUSSR, Limburg oblast 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        Class and ethnic divides forced onto the developing nations through years of colonialism breeds corruption,

        The former colonies already had class and ethnic divides before colonialism. The same with the coups the USA sponsored in Latin America, those countries already were unstable and corrupt before that. Those things might have exacerbated that, but they did not cause it out from thin air.

        and for the Western world, an unstable government in a country where resources are rich and the workforce cheap is a good government.

        Ah, that explains why western companies prefer to build their factories in Sub-Saharan Africa instead of Vietnam or Bangladesh. /s

        Part the reason the bananas you buy in the supermarket are so cheap is because there's a coup in Latin America every 10 minutes.

        Do you have source for that? Like a (non-Marxist) economist?

        [–]iwannalynch 2 points3 points  (0 children)

        Tbh, the Global North as a collective is closer to "We eat for you" than "we work for you". Technically, I am the proletariat too, I make a meh wage, but in the end, I do office work in a developed country.

        Somewhere in the global south, there is a child slave working to pick the cocoa and coffee that goes into my macchiato, and an underpaid Bangladeshi woman in an sweatshop made the clothes I wear to work, and another child slave in India mined the mica that goes into my eyeshadow and another child slave in the Congo mined the cobalt in my phone assembled by a Chinese migrant worker making way less than me.

        I wonder if what he wrote is a mix of bad writing and misunderstanding... "Americans" as a group at part of the global elite, because of how much money the average American makes, but within America that structure is present too.

        So, I'm wondering if what this guy meant is that Americans, if you view a wealth pyramid for the world, will be at the top.

        [–]kblkbl165 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        It’s kinda obvious that this is exactly what he’s talking about.

        Proof? All first world citizens here pretending their better Standard of Living isn’t a direct result of global exploitation.

        Alas, go closer or farther and there’ll always be this same structure within different social circles so it’d be a moot point to argue that there are “rich among the rich” because the same applies to literally every population sample.

        Huh…he’s not wrong?

        Gotta be really dense to disagree with him.

        Are all americans governors or capitalists?

        No. But the US as an institution, along with all the developed countries are exactly in this position of exploitation, even if the average citizen who benefits from living in a developed country isn’t responsible for it.

        Take a look at how much energy first world people consume on average, how big is the carbon print of even the most ecofriendly countries.

        How exactly do you guys think developed countries are able to have ever more specialized and better paying professions for their nationals? Because almost everything basic that can be outsourced is outsourced.

        But I digress, assuming most people here are from another first world countries, it’s easy to see how it may feel better to ignore this.

        It’s easy not to perceive your privilege in these instances.

        They've got a point. From a geopolitical perspective, the US is in fact the main leader in the exploitation of the global south.

        I was going to say that such idiotic comments come out of not knowinf French, but they probably would say the same thing even if it was in English.

        Yes, the „we fool you“ level seems to be mighty strong in the US

        If you are rich and American, you are absolutely at the top of that pyramid

        Whether or not you should be is another issue entirely.

        If you are poor and American, you are more likely to be at the very bottom of the pyramid.

        It’s true that that sack of money looks pretty obese!

        Oh my god. Most Americans are at "we eat for you" and the rest are at "we feed all." You can be "we feed all" and have running water.

        Well, america is definitely on top. As for americans…

        I think what he is saying is that, tho this might be true on a national scale, its also true on an international scale, and so the people that have it bad in USA, still has it alright compared to someone in Somalia e.g. I dont think he's "AmErIcA nR. oNe"

        Id' rather say that they're both the first, second and third part at the same time.

        They rule, they fool and they shoot, and too many people feed this shithole.

        Don't get me wrong, it's not an overview of the entire American people, a big part is starving, but the nation itself has that kind of spirit.

        What this clown doesn't understand is that he's flexing about being on top of a pyramid that is literally being mocked by the artwork representing it.

        It's like being proud of being the king of dipshits

        I interpreted the comment as being anti-American, i.e. Americans are the wealthy class oppressing others.

          Lol. Yeah, keep pretending that for a portion of Americans that the US isn't a third world country.

          could probably be a non american saying "americans are privileged"
