But by concentrating exclusively on Trump and Cruz and the perennial freak show of the lunatic right, the comparison misses the larger point that the real Frankenstein monster — the monster that ultimately gestated Trump, Cruz, the Great Recession, and their attendant pathologies— is contemporary capitalism itself. To paraphrase an advertising slogan: Now, before we go any farther and commit the criminal offense of misdemeanor sociology by over-idealizing what those years were like, I should back up a step or two and acknowledge that, no, the largesse of those supposed halcyon days by no means included everyone.
Dresden Berns 15 Comments Historically, Communism began with the Jewish social philosopher, Karl Marx real name Moses Mordecai Levybut demonstrably begins with the advent of the universal, collectivist teachings of Judeo-Christianity. Like Communists, Christians seek to spread themselves and their institutions up and over all the nations of the world, without regard for frontiers, borders, race, or culture.
Christians insist that all the various and vastly different peoples on earth should sacrifice their native beliefs and traditions for an uncompromising, dogmatic, and most of all, alien ideology. For as Paul put it in Galatians 3: There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
Differences of age and sex have no longer any distinctive social validity for the working class. The impractical and suicidal ideals of Jesus tell us to pursue a false dichotomy, to sacrifice our earthly existence in exchange for the prospect of an enjoyable afterlife.
But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. Then come, follow me. Not to suggest there is anything inherently wrong with government aid, but its only purpose is to prevent immediate death and starvation until self-sufficiency can be achieved; not sustain a host and parasite relationship as it does today.
Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime. False Socialism The sole purpose of genuine Socialism is to bring up the laboring class, the blue-collar worker to greater heights — with a hospitable work environment, fair pay, and reverence for his contribution to society.
The underrated social status of the manual laborer trapped in the cracks of the Capitalist system, a system in which countrymen come second to production and profit, is the exact reason why the allure of Communism appealed to the working man.
It draws upon his desperation, and it channels and nurtures his rightful contempt for his superiors. But, rather than harmonizing the lower and upper stratums of society by representing each social class equally, Communism heaves the lower class against the upper class like cannon fodder, demolishing the possibility of a brotherly reconciliation.
Stoking the flames of social unrest, the Commissars incite class warfare and then provide a misleading solution — the proposal of a class structure, which guarantees an eternal reservation at the very position the lower class seeks to graduate; which is the amalgamation of social classes into one, subordinated under the State.
In the end, a cruel aristocracy is never revoked the right to exploit the subservient, but rather the new aristocracy becomes the State. The intention of Communism is not to create a brotherhood of man or an economic structure that ameliorates the lives of the exploited.
The aim of Communism is to create slaves out of nations that the Commissars can then lord over. Their ambition was not to reconcile the disproportionate divide between the employee and the employer, or peacefully resolve the class struggle waged between them, but rather their remedy was to mass slaughter the aristocracy, including the Tsar of Russia and his entire family.
Grigori Zinoviev, a lead Commissar who spoke at a meeting of Communists in Septembereffectively pronounced a death sentence on ten million human beings: As for the rest, we have nothing to say to them.
They must be annihilated. A very telling article written by Winston Churchill titled, Zionism Versus Bolshevismpublished in the Sunday Herald, February 8th,reveals the Jewish role in the international spread of Communism.
There is no need to exaggerate the part played in the creation of Bolshevism and in the actual bringing about of the Russian Revolution by these international and for the most part atheistical Jews.
It is certainly a very great one; it probably outweighs all others. This movement among the Jews is not new. From the days of Spartacus-Weishaupt to those of Karl Marx, and down to Trotsky RussiaBela Kun HungaryRosa Luxembourg Germanyand Emma Goldman United Statesthis world-wide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilization and for the reconstitution of society on the basis of arrested development, of envious malevolence, and impossible equality, has been steadily growing.
It played, as a modern writer, Mrs.The Fate of Capitalism: Was Marx Right? Because he was a Marxist scholar and taught Marxism, he could not find employment at a top university commensurate with his skills and credentials.
According to Marxism, what will be the fate of capitalism? it will eventually destroy itself by driving working class to revolution; it exploits the bourgeoisie until capitalism is gone, and the proletariat is .
May 02, · Marx could have made mistake – and, in fact had made mistake – in the correct application of dialectical principles in respect of the emergence of a new society beyond capitalism. The right to question, the right to verify is the scientific approach to dialectics; this is rescuing dialectics from Marxism; this is saving Marxism from turning.
First, you must ignore Marx’s inflammatory language such as the bourgeois = capitalists, the proletarians = the laborers, the “surplus value” of labor = profits and the like.
Marx believed based off of Darwin that evolution could explain human progress and the survival of the fittest and nature. He believed that evolution wasn't just biological, but sociological. Evolution was an important companion to Marxism.
