I think there is another reason why capitalists preffer war to subsidize
people. As value and plusvalue are tied to the time of labour socially
necessary to produce the commodity, and as the free competition depelops
technology, this time of labour, periodically, according to the pattern of
technology, tends to zero - so it is necessary, as in I and II World Wars,
to destroy everything, in order to make the labour time socially necessary
grow again to reconstruct what was destroyed. Capitalism depends on a
concept of value that capitalism itself tend periodically to destroy, and
that is one of the reasons it is a barbarian regime.
