Liberalism vs capitalism

Econostream != Eonic Sequence
The previous post discussed Badiou’s confusion over market systems under liberalism, and liberalism as such. To blame liberalism for capitalism is a fallacy, and if you look at history you will see that while modern capitalism arose in same generation as modern liberalism it is a fallacy to equate the two. Note that the creators of democracy had no real grasp of the way that ‘market freedoms’ could be used to create a new form of class domination. And the correction, when it came, from the socialists, before and then with Marx, ended up in a muddle over the way history had unfolded. I recomment a look at the analysis in terms of the eonic effect: there we see independent emergence of capitalism (which actually has always existed) and liberalism.

The point is essential since the ideology of the leftist bourgeoisie conveniently equated capitalism and rights liberalism in their will to power toward totalitarian control.
To create socialism requires creating a liberalism to go with it.
But the left still can’t seem to realize Stalin was a problem!
