The Goal of Socialism…..
… is communism. We know this because Vladimir Lenin told us so. After all, if anyone should know, it would be the man who first implemented the inane notions of Karl Marx and Frederick Ingles. If we fast forward through the next 100 years, we’ll find the result of communism has been somewhere on the order of one-hundred-million deaths. I suspect that a socialist might argue, “Well, if you wanted to avoid 100-million deaths, all you had to do was sit down, shut up, and do what you’re told.”
The facts about socialism and communism are sufficiently dismal to make me wonder why any American would wish to pursue a socialist agenda.
I was reading a commentary at AOW’s blog the other day. Writer “Silverfiddle” reminded us that the Democratic Party is home to leftwing mob violence. He’s right about that, and so too is a commenter named Sam, who wrote:
Marxist/leftist theory is only the tip of the iceberg. What follows theory is the leftist program, which defines the aims of the movement, provides a strategy to implement the program, and offers the tactics to set civil unrest and discord into motion. This is not something new, and it is not new inside the borders of the United States. It’s been going on for quite a while.
It is also quite complex, involving main and auxiliary organizations. If we pull back the cover of leftist activism, we will find that there are differences in tactics that depend upon the social group that is intended to implement them: one set for disaffected blacks, another for illegal aliens, another for slow-thinking college students, another for unions, and so on.
Tactics may also include regional differences. But we can say for certain there is a method to the leftist madness—and there are no shortages of examples where the communist left has provoked civil unrest all the way back to the late 19th Century.
In the modern sense, the underlying strategy is one of terror, which places the American communist left in the same camp as Islamic radicals. As Silverfiddle has said, disagree with any mind-numbing leftist contention and you run the risk of being assaulted.
I’ve asked this question before (admittedly a rhetorical one): why would any thinking American EVER vote for a Democrat? The answer is that a thinking American wouldn’t —but we don’t have a plethora of these sitting around waiting to vote patriotism, do we?
I have no crystal ball, so I think the upcoming mid-term elections will be instructive to all of us. The worst thing that could happen is that conservatives will stay home on election day. If that happens, the communists will reclaim the House of Representatives. I wish I had more confidence in the American electorate, but I don’t. What is it? Only 42% of registered voters even bother to vote? If the statistic is true, we should worry about the upcoming election. Maybe I will develop more confidence if conservative Americans are able to maintain its control of the Congress.
Will you vote in the mid-terms?
