    Default The New Communism In America

    The New Communism In America

    Monday, February 20, 2017


    I wrote much about this two years ago, and again last year. It seems it is time to do so again.

    Let us 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. Last November was a referendum on the ongoing leftward march by the United States. The work of men like Carter, and Clinton, and Obama was soundly rejected, as the the Chamberlain-like appeasement of the Bush clan with the election of President Trump. And what we are seeing now is the American Communist Machine at work to hold on to a sliver of power while seeking to discredit those who defeated it.

    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 populist/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. In short, making everything and everyone dependent on the government. This should all sound very familiar by now.

    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. Don't take my word for it. Please read it for yourself.

    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 and would prefer to be funded by those who are.

    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. Obamacare was a huge step in the attempt to develop a moneyless social order.

    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, Obama, 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. And make no mistake, what you are seeing in the various protests, both the ridiculous and the violent, is an attempt to form the vanguard Lenin spoke about.

    That vanguard, funded and organized by the American Communist Movement, will prove itself as dangerous to America and its citizens as any bomb wielding Jihadist.

    We live in a time of war and a new front is beginning to emerge. Stay frosty and awake.

    Not including war dead since 1918 the Nazi's killed approximately 11 M people. It is estimated that the Communist world wide have killed between 100 M and 160 M with best estimates just under 150 M. To be fair the Communist have had a longer run at it but none the less 150 Million people is a lot. This does not include all the misery caused by such a flawed political system.

    As I believe you would agree, any kind of forced socialism leaves a trail of death and misery and fails in the end. Keep preaching bro', we need to be reminded from time to time least we forget.

    Another thing that needs to be remembered, is that Lenny's Vanguard eventually started shooting people. Many today see the communist agitators in the street today as weak and ineffectual. But, there are some who are already advocating armed insurrection.

    If there aren't already, I would give it less than ten years, and there will be firearms training schools for those on the far left. People like Gabe&Co, but with a Communist Manifesto tucked in their breast pockets.

    It is coming in full force.

    They believe that those who have money are "hoarding" it so others cannot. Wealth can be created, there is not a fixed amount, especially in this day and age. Plenty of people have come here with nothing and become millionaires. Moreover, I'd be willing to wager that with the exception of those who have inherited successful companies they did not build, if the "reset" button was hit and everyone started over with equal resources, those who are successful now would be again in a very short time, and those who aren't would be broke again.

    Keep working and stay ready to shoot terrorists in the face...

    This has been discussed already in other areas. The brainwashed left and BLM crowds feel their world is imploding and they have nothing left to live for, so they are unafraid to riot, loot, and shoot first. Meanwhile those of us with families, property, companies, etc have been reserved in our actions. Hopefully we are still the silent majority and don't grow complacent.

    To borrow a line from their playbook, "complacency starts with silence".

    for 60 years, we have been "waiting on them to do something illegal". Well, I hate to say it, but they aren't stupid. For 60 years, they've been making laws and undermining our way of life. If the silent majority doesn't start speaking out, and alienating all the communists we find, *they will win*. No one says you have to shoot them (not yet anyways), but you certainly don't need to hold any doors for them, or give them any business.

    As Glenn Reynolds (Instapundit) often repeats "Under capitalism the rich get powerful. Under socialism the powerful get rich".

    I suggest a study of successful COIN warfare by the Brits and the Russians. The Americans have not, to my knowledge ever conducted a successful COIN campaign...I could be wrong on that .

    You are not wrong. America's only real COIN war was Vietnam. It was fought using an essentially Korean War strategy and military mindset instead of mirroring the tactics, strategy and mindset the British used successfully in Malay, Borneo, Kenya and against the Indonesian aggression.
