    COMMUNISM IN AMERICA

    Friday, April 06, 2018


    I update this article every so often because communism is emphatically not dead
    . And it seems that an affinity toward this philosophy is growing in, of all place, the USA. If Americans were not historically illiterate, they would see incredible parallels between the agenda of the left...the liberals, the progressives, and the avowed socialists, with the agenda promoted by communism's founders. Please read history before scoffing as uninformed opinions are as worthless as the results of communism.
    Communism 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. And not all American Communists are democrats. The philosophy of communism pervades both sides of the proverbial aisle.

    Regardless of whether you like or dislike Trump, his election was a big middle finger to American Communism.

    First some history and definitions so that we understand the true enemy of freedom.

    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. That sounds very nice if you are a poor, uneducated, manual laborer that owns nothing and lives on government welfare payments. It doesn't sound do attractive if you created production, the means of production and are profiting from your hard work and ingenuity.

    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. ANTIFA are hard 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 as the agenda of the American Left.

    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. Communism always fails. It has always failed in every nation that attempted it in any form attempted. And it takes untold lives and societal damage in that ultimate fail. That is why communism must be resisted totally and completely and without any sort of compromise. The fight against the spread of the communist cancer transcends family and nationality and any other ties that bond people. You cannot get along with a communist...eventually he will come to take what is yours. Like cancer...even a little bit is dangerous and unhealthy.

    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 has emerged. The defeat of Communism is as important as the defeat of the Jihadist. Stay frosty and awake.

    Another timely reminder and update is greatly appreciated. The threats are four-dimensional and growing more quickly in this instantaneous digital world.

    Sooooooo the question then, is how to stop it? Its a question that has been asked since before an Austrian Corporal shouted about Communists fighting in the streets, before someone poured a bottle of red ink onto a globe to demonstrate the flow of the Red Menace, before a cartoon turtle taught kids to hide under their school desks when the atomic bombs were falling. Communism (Socialism, Liberalism, et'al) gets a foothold whenever someone preaches governmental "charity". Churches can give charity NOT governments.

    Soooo again, how to stop it? Its certainly NOT stopped by reason or words. President Reagan defeated the Soviet Union by force/threat of force AND the tease of a better life through wealth but that was against an outside nation. THIS threat is internal. Its our own fault by permitting schools AND churches and and and to preach liberalism, socialism, and communism.


    Has Communism ever been stopped by words?

    Not something we will be TALKING about here. And if one needs to ask, they are either foolish, historically illiterate, or a part of the problem. I think everyone knows, but elaborating on that is not wise..not yet.

    Thanks Gabe for consistently raising awareness about the dangers of communism and the endless guises it tries to hide under.

    You compare the threat of communism to the threat from Jihadists. While in some ways the comparison is apt, at least Jihad is not currently being promoted fairly widespread by the public schools and the mass media. Communism is under widespread promotion, hiding in "kinder, gentler" names like socialism, social democracy, fairness, equality, and social justice. In that sense, communism is a far more immediate threat to the majority of Americans.

    In this context I'd like to mention a book whose title is both relevant and too good not to quote directly. The book is "MARXISM/SOCIALISM, A SOCIOPATHIC PHILOSOPHY CONCEIVED IN GROSS ERROR AND IGNORANCE, CULMINATING IN ECONOMIC CHAOS, ENSLAVEMENT, TERROR, AND MASS MURDER: A CONTRIBUTION TO ITS DEATH" by George Reisman. It's reasonably approachable but somewhat of a technical book. It's great if you want to understand details and be able to refute specific arguments made by the left.

    I am not the author of that book (or related to him), and I get nothing from its sale other than the satisfaction of increasing the knowledge quotient of people who, like me, support freedom and free markets. I hope that keeps this post clearly on the non-spam side of the rules, but I understand if you feel the need to moderate.

    Out of four millenial nephews two are avowed socialists. One is a capitalist, and one leans socialist. I would think that this is unfortunately a typical cross section of youth today.

    I listen to a particular show on the radio every morning. Where they cover topics over the full spectrum and invite experts over the different fields to voice their opinion. People can also phone in and add their own opinion to the discussion.

    No matter what the problem was last week be it climate change, what could be done to help improve the economy-creating jobs. Or looking for ways to improve the quality of people`s lives in general. The the one solution that all the experts agreed on was that the rich should come to the part and give generously.

    Some of the experts not trying to hide the socialism like the 'expert' talking about climate change who blamed Maggie Thatcher and Ronald Reagan for the start of all the world environmental problems. His major complain was that these leaders were capitalists-interested in making money-and almost as bad is that these leaders placed their countries first when making decisions. For these reasons according to him it is only right that America and England no provide the finances to fix everything that is wrong with the environment, taking care of their RESPONSIBILITY. One of the buss-words I often hear being used by these so called experts. Instead of saying what the really mean-TAKING the money from the rich and giving it to the poor.

    Speaking of words, the word/concept in my country that is being used to replace communism/socialism is-We need to fix the INEQULITY before we can move forward. Arguing that there can be no real piece and financial stability if the balance is not fixed somehow between the rich and the poor.

    Lately it seems that all the experts across all the different fields agree with the socialists that the only way to do this is for the rich to finance programs or to simply give huge amounts of money away to improve people`s lives.

    With young people studying at/planning to go to university they replace the word inequality with the question of-Do you think it is fair. That a person who cannot afford to go to university and who has not being afforded the same opportunities growing up should be excluded from higher education. Would it then not be the right thing to do to make all higher education free. Or alternatively making the rich pay. Again correcting the balance to set things right.

    To illustrate how desperate people are to create this piece and stability there are now economists and political leaders trying to add some socialists ideas to their strategies in an effort to move forward. Hiding the socialists ideas behind some sound business ideas based on capitalism. As well as hiding their intentions by coming up with creative words like the ones I mentioned above.

    The general public share this desperation in wanting the country to show some forward momentum. Desperate for some good news and simply tired of all the negativity. Making them susceptible to these socialists ideas.
