Time for school. Today boys and girls, we will discuss communism, and why it remains as the greatest threat to humanity and the greatest danger to the success of this country and those who live here.

First some history and definitions.

Communism (from Latin "communis" - common) is a revolutionary movement that seeks to create a classless and moneyless social order structured upon common ownership of production, the means of production, as well as the profits from that production. The men most associated with communism are Marx, and Lenin.

Communism significantly influenced the history of the 20th century, which saw intense rivalry between the "socialist world" (socialist states ruled by communist parties) and the "western world" (countries with capitalist economies). Communists believe that pure communism is a specific stage of historical development that inevitably emerges from the development of production that leads to a superabundance of material wealth. That allows for distribution based on need. The communist mantra is "From each according to their ability and to each according to their need".

Communism has been always associated with the Soviet Union. Since the fall of the USSR, many Americans have incorrectly thought that communism fell as well. But today, the communist philosophy remains, draped with the more acceptable and "less Russian" names of "socialism", "liberalism", and now "progressivism". Yes, liberals and progressives are soft core communists. It is interesting to note that Marxist theory contends that socialism is just a transitional stage on the road to communism.

Leninism adds the notion of a vanguard party to lead the proletarian revolution and to secure all political power after the revolution for the working class. This usually means elimination of firearms in the hands of the public, confiscation of wealth, nationalization of industry, and indoctrination of the young...as well as executing any resistance. No imagined mythology here kids…my family and I lived through this in Cuba. Any man that has lived in communism knows its smell instantly, and recognizes it over the room freshener, like the rotting stench of a corpse.

If one examines any country that has been communist...or pseudo-communist, one will eventually see a failed state. The USSR failed, as has every single other communist state. The current economic debacles in Europe are due to socialist (pseudo-communist) economic policies. The reasons why communism does not work are as follows.

1). Creating A Classless Social Order. That is not possible because even though it may sound harsh, we are not all equal. Some people are smarter than others. Some people are stronger than others. And some people are more clever than others. Those that are, will naturally prosper more than the less prepared. As well, some people have a better work ethic than others. Denying that will not make it any less fact. You cannot make a stupid man into a smart man, nor a lazy man into an industrious man. Specially if he does not wish it so. What communism wants to do is to force "those who can" to carry "those who won't".

Eventually "those who can" either get tired of being enslaved (via excessive and ridiculous taxes) due to their talent and stop working, or simply leave to a non-communist region where they can profit from their abilities. Think Atlas Shrugged.

2). Create a moneyless social order. Money is what drives everything. It has been that way from the age of Mesopotamia and is that way today. It is why countries go to war (and you thought it was for "freedom" I will bet), it is why people get up in the morning and go to school or work. The hope for a better life and the creation of wealth is what drives a modern and prosperous society. Communism kills that hope by stifling creativity and drive (through the elimination of personal wealth) so that the lazy will not feel held back by the capable (sound familiar??). Like it or not, for most men, the ability to keep what they make trumps ideas about patriotic giving.

3). Common ownership of production, the means of production, as well as the profits from that production. They did that in Cuba. They made communist janitors in charge of State Agriculture. They made communist "academics" in charge of the banks. And they made communist housewives that were good friends with some general's wife, in charge of education. Communism thrives on nepotism and cronyism. The ignorant, the incapable, the untrained and the unskilled cannot succeed at anything, in spite of how much Marx, Castro, or any other communist leader wants them to.

Want to know the source of the “Entitlement Mentality”? Look no further than Communism. Communism festered in Cuba and erupted into a revolution that was eventually successful. But communism is not always brought to power as a result of a violent Lenin-esque revolution. It is as often brought to power in a cancerous Marxist spread that may take several generations to be realized. What does this have to do with anything today? Because what you are seeing with the BLM people and the current anti-white, anti-capitalism, anti-success thinking is not really about race or something so ambiguous as income inequality - regardless of what the media are saying.

It is about “class warfare”, and its being created and fed by the Communist Movement in America.

Dead nuts on. "They" learned from their predecessors, Lenin, Mao, et.al. John Boyd summarized it perfectly in his work and watching it unfold is like watching a bad movie.

Many decades back, I read as much as I could by Col. Cooper. Why? He was a very educated and knowledgeable historian & pistolero.

I now read as much as I can written by Mr. Suarez. Why? He is a very educated and knowledgeable historian & pistolero.

Communism is a mean, cruel, and inhuman method of control.

Great article brother


To easily put communism into perspective one needs to see it in all its "glory".

I took these pictures in a Communist country in S.E. Asia a few months ago.

This is how communism works........

Well put Gabe, like my grandpa always used to say, communism is nothing but hunger, misery and terror.

Bernie and Barry want everyone to be equal, as in equally broke. However, anyone who has lived in a communist state knows that some are more equal than others.

The popularity of Trump suggests that capitalism in America isn't dead yet.

There is another insidious problem, and this is the presence of those people that I refer to as "social engineers." These are the academics and bureaucrats that believe that they, because of their great wisdom, are entitled to decide how others will live their lives. They know what is best for us. They know what kind of cars we should drive, so they will regulate those cars into being the only cars available. They know how much money we should save, so they will force us to save that much money--and into their plan, of course. Socialism and Communism are the banners under which these people gather. This is not because they necessarily embrace an ideal of equality. Indeed, they revel in their perception of self-superiority. But they could not succeed with honesty. They would fail immediately if they bluntly informed the populace that they simply wanted everyone else in the world to conform themselves to a style of living that most satisfied the social engineer. So they instead pretend that it is all "for the common good." Vegetarians want to ban meat. Cyclists want to ban cars. They are all ready to ban those things they don't like, and subsidize the things they do like. Social engineers, central planners, meddlers. These are people who find it impossible to simply leave others alone. Where effective, I am content to simply deprive these people of the power that they cannot be trusted with. Where that fails, violence remains an option.

Wait - don't you ride a bicycle? You tyrant!I do. For the sake of good writing, I was perhaps overly succinct. But you know the type. Most cyclists can just enjoy a ride. But there are those meddlers who want to make everyone ride a bike regardless of whether or not they enjoy it, because they dream of a sea of bicycles and zero cars. There is a pretty direct connection to communism right there--for these people, visions of Mao's China and a billion black bicycles is like Utopia.

I got the point. People confusing the freedom to do something with forcing others to do it too. F***in' vegans...

A bicycle weighs...with rider...what 200 pounds?

A Tahoe weighs over 2000 pounds.

Perhaps the militant bicyclists needs to reexamine nature.
