Let me show you how socialists overthrow governments. They use the following statement as the basis of their tactics:
“Corrupt the young, get them away from religion. Get them interested in sex. Make them superficial, destroy their ruggedness. Get control of all means of publicity and thereby: Get the peoples’ mind off their government by focusing their attention on athletics, sexy books and plays, and other trivialities. Divide the people into hostile groups by constantly harping on controversial matters of no importance. Destroy the peoples faith in their natural leaders by holding up the latter to ridicule, contempt and obloquy. Always preach true democracy but seize power as fast and as ruthlessly as possible. Encourage government extravagance, destroy its credit, produce fear with rising prices, inflation and general discontent. Foment unnecessary strikes in vital industries, encourage civil disorders and foster a soft and lenient attitude on the part of government towards such disorders. By specious argument cause the breakdown of the old moral virtues: honesty, sobriety, continence, faith in the pledged word, ruggedness. Cause the registration of all firearms on some pretext, with the view of confiscating them and leaving the population defenseless.“
—Ubiquitous anonymous quote sometimes attributed to Vladimir Ilich Lenin.
Gee, it sounds like just exactly what is happening in America today, with the willing complicity a large portion of the major news media. One thing that was left out of the above statement: the need to dumb down the populace with poor education. You will find similar ideas in Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals.”
Do you remember what Nikita Khrushchev said in 1956 at the UN? Speaking about the United States he said, “We will bury your grandchildren.” Most understood that to mean some type of military takeover. I disagree. I believe that Khrushchev meant that the tactics outlined in Lenin’s quote above would bury us from within. If so, then his words were prophetic for socialism and communism are burying us from within.
Political system favoring abolishing private property and the ownership of private weapons. A system of common ownership and distribution of goods and wealth directed by a centralized authority. A system with a strong authoritarian central single party government. A system that advocates state control of all industry and productivity and promotes the complete eradication of religion. Marxism/Leninism.
OK, what does modern liberalism in the USA represent? First and foremost, a large central government that controls every aspect of life in America. Next, the demonizing of religious expression, especially Judeo-Christian religion leading to its eradication. They want national gun registration leading to the confiscation of all firearms. This is done through demonization, non-enforcement of gun laws, and repeating lies against safe, legal gun ownership. They support pornography, free sex without moral constraints, teen sex, pedophilia, homosexuality, and prostitution. They allow art to take any form of excess or prurient expression. They support big government spending to the point of bankrupting the nation. They support strikes and union dissent through the forced use of union dues to support left-wing causes. They like multiculturalism because it divides the people into hostile groups by using controversial issues such as race, affirmative action, environmentalism, global warming, and many other issues. By specious argument they cause the breakdown of the old moral virtues such as honesty, sobriety, continence, faith, and common sense. By using the politics of personal destruction they destroy leaders who are decent moral people of faith and law.
I could go on, but the picture is quite clear now. Liberals in the United States use the same tactics developed by men like Alinsky, Khrushchev, and Lenin to foment socialism and communism. In short, they are communists.
I will no longer refer to modern political liberals in the USA by the term liberal. They are communists, plain and simple. Yes they are socialists, but the difference between socialism and communism is the totalitarian state. Socialists are more democratic; communists are totalitarian. Communists proclaim that they are democrats but they are actually autocrats. Liberals in America claim they are democrats, in fact they even belong to the Democratic party, but they are elitist autocrats at heart.
Isn’t it amazing that all communist regimes call themselves democratic, which is the opposite of their true identity and they always refer to truly free republics as totalitarian states. Remember when the USSR would aggressively move into countries to take them over by force and when there US would protest they called us imperialist aggressors? That has not changed. Communists still corrupt the language, using it in adulterated form to accuse and minimize their political enemies.
Well . . . come to think of it a true democratic society actually is totalitarian. It is the rule of the majority. Someone said democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on dinner.
The thinking illustrated in this missive is what I would call corrupted wisdom. Who is the father of corrupted wisdom? Satan:
“Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.” Ezekiel 28:17, KJV (my emphasis).
