Communism

An election week postscript on the credulity of the Progressive Mercedes-Marxists in our times who run our cities and control our Federal Government

In our time, in most places on the earth, the Marxist gospel has been spread with a subversive and ruthless sword, but in the constitutional republic of America, thus far, it has largely been advanced with a silver tongue that masks a spiteful heart (to get elected). This mission has been possible without any need for gulags or prison camps. 

In our time, the extraordinary Clinton/Obama/Sanders type credulity is the uncompromising creed that their Socialistic theocracy has relieved poverty, rather than created it. This delusionary belief may, or may not, be sincerely embraced by all who claim it, but its messianic propaganda has been widely received by those convinced that they will be beneficiaries of a benevolent dictatorship of government largesse. For the recipients who follow this doctrine, it is not necessary to understand that state ownership of the means of production, and its massive, forced redistribution of wealth, has in the past resulted in the totalitarian control of everything. Willing converts to this faith frequently discover too late that they have become the property of those engineering the Socialistic reconstruction of the economy, who in the process must create sufficient poverty for the masses to become dependents in a vicious cycle of votes given in order to assure basic needs of food, shelter, health-care, and education.

In our time, these zealous neo-Marxists have in reality created an enormous plantation right in our midst, in nearly every American city, enslaving faithful millions who willingly surrender their votes in hope. Their misplaced hope is of salvation from grinding poverty (even hunger) and social degradation: arguably, the very best products of Progressive ideology. It does not seem to occur to the devotees that their Rulers’ systems are perfectly designed to get the results they are getting, and that all such societies must inevitably perish along with the martyrs to their false economies.

The most bitter venom of these new Master-priests of societal and economic engineering is reserved for any who digress from their orthodoxy, maligning them as those who do not care about the plight of the Progressives’ impoverished and needy congregations. Indeed, they falsely characterize opponents of the socialist faith as enemies of their opiated, dependent millions.

In reality, for all who do care, recent history in the USSR (and China, North Korea, Vietnam, etc.) should remind us that the Marxists there have taught us well how to reduce the majority of the faithful population to abject misery and hopelessness by creating sufficient poverty and total dependency. It hardly needs mentioning that this scenario requires the social engineers of this failed experiment to retain their own great power and prosperity to manage it all. Yet, I am compelled this election week to make note that in America, the most prosperous and free land in history, that these elected Progressives have, right under our noses, created miseries unmatched even in the Communist nations. These sad tales include spiritual, moral, economic degradation, and violence on a scale that only Josef Stalin could fully appreciate. To deny this direct link between their ideology and its fruit is one of the worse kinds of their dissembling; it is not simply disingenuous. In regards to violence, there are hundreds of murders every year in every American, third-world inner-city plantation (the disastrous Progressives’ “Projects”); there has been genocidal violence against millions of their unborn, minority children, intentionally concentrated where the clinics of “termination” are mostly located. Adding further injury, countless families have been divided by the Socialist Welfare policies of cutting off payments when any sign of a male presence is discovered in the home of women with children, further impoverishing the family and destroying opportunity. To cope with their hopeless captivity, millions there have also become addicted to drugs in desperation. Baltimore alone estimates some 70,000 addicts. Is it then not a marvel that anchors on Chanel 11 still gush about a “Baltimore uprising,” romanticizing drug dealers and anarchists who took control of a few of our city blocks for a weekend back in 2015? The dealers strategically targeted and emptied many liquor stores and pharmacies, while the anarchists fomented violence and burned buildings in the name of Marxian theology, dramatically escalating the drug-war casualties since. Is this the best Progressives can offer us? This was no revolution, nor even a “race riot,” in any sense of the word. And those most hurt were the elderly and their neighborhood pharmacies which depend upon a free, market economy, the very front and center object of the attack. Those most enervated and energized were the Leftists-on-the-Street who are the unwitting, prophetic mouth-piece for the theocrats’ Progressive message. True to character, they have sought to revise the facts of reality to assure at the polls that they will retain, and gain more, power for very real oppressors who will continue this cyclic, downward Progress of economic and social impoverishment.

As we go to the polls,
this may sound rather alarmist,
because it is.

Speaking of the Baltimore press on the so-called “Uprising”: some throwback thoughts on Socialism-Communism

MarxHistoryI have shared below some sobering insights from Berdyaev that might seem a bit out-of-date and unwelcome, since we all know that “Communism has collapsed.” And also, no-one likes to hear from alarmists. Nevertheless, if you can bear with me momentarily, I suggest that there is recent evidence of an increase of deluded ignorance about economics in our beloved USA: it is seen in the Baltimore riots, the Marxian news anchors who keep calling it an “uprising,” the Anarchists’ and Communist Party’s support for the riots, as well as the meteoric rise of people like Bernie Sanders in the (Socialistic) Democratic Party. It is true that many people try to differentiate Communism from Socialism, but in Marxian theory they are simply different stages in the supposed dialectical evolution of the class struggle. In both cases, the small details that are often overlooked by careless historians and Messianic-Dreamers of the New-World-of-equal-everything, is that it will require the impoverishing of all (but the Party), millions of deaths, gulags, and the eventual destruction of civilization. Have we forgotten that all of the above happened not-too-long-ago in the DeathCamp of The Soviet Union, The DyingField of Vietnam, the WalkingDead of North Korea, the sixty-million who perished in Mao’s China, as well as the uncounted deaths in numerous other nation states? Have we become a nation of Amnesiacs on Huxley’s Soma? Is it time to re-read Orwell’s Animal Farm and 1984?


“All the untruths of Communism come from its Godlessness and inhumanity; the falseness of the sanguinary coercion by which it wants to found social justice, the falseness of the tyranny that cannot bear man’s dignity; its admission of every conceivable means to further the end it considers as supreme and unique; rancour, hatred and revenge as a way of obtaining perfect life, the brotherhood of men. There was a demoniacal element in Marx’s teaching, which gave it its invincible dynamism. He believed that good can be produced by evil, that light can be obtained through darkness, that freedom would result from dire blind necessity. Evil must increase, darkness must thicken. That is how he understood the dialectics of the social process. The workmen’s lot must grow worse in capitalist society (the Verelendungstheorie), the labourers must become more and more embittered and penetrated by vindicative and violent emotions. That is the basis of Marx’s revolutionary messianic hope. He wants the working class, which is an empirical reality, to be saturated with proletarian consciousness. When that happens, feelings of resentment, envy, hatred and revenge will grow up in it.”
