Corporatism: A marriage of left and right

So how is it that while the welfare state grows and economies stagnate the rich get richer? Corporatism is part of the answer. Corporatism appeases the political and economic ambitions of the left and the right. Ultimately those in the productive economy pay the price.

Centuries of hard times for the labouring masses eventually gave rise to a reaction by organised labour resulting in the rise of left-wing politics. Corporatism was a way that the ruling elite could co-opt the left and quell potentially revolutionary forces by offering a foothold on the lower rungs of the ladder of privilege.

In this program I demonstrate how many supposedly “progressive” left policies are used to the advantage of the bourgeoisie.
