UPDATE 5/1/18: A Happy, Happy May Day! The NY Times celebrates the many successes of Communism’s first glorious century, neglecting to mention the scores of millions of dead bodies, enslaved souls and the all-round misery it has gifted humanity.
UPDATE 2/2/18: How many ruined lives and dead bodies does it take to realize that Marx/Lenin/Stalin/Mao/Castro/Che/Ho/Chavez and all their fans and imitators around the world had/have REALLY bad ideas? Perhaps freedom might be a better solution…that is, if ruthless, heartless power and control over millions is not one’s goal.
ORIGINAL POST 10/28/17: If the recent birthday of the U.S. Constitution is something to celebrate, the centennial of the Russian Revolution, October 24, 2017, is not. (By conspicuously ignoring this landmark, the Russians themselves seem to agree).Marxism as world power politics based on envy, hatred, division, lies, tyranny and murder was launched a century ago; and all humanity within and beyond the former Soviet Union continues to be infected, leaving human liberty in permanent, potential peril. Those who doubt are invited to look upon scores and scores and scores of millions of corpses left in Marxism’s wake and still piling up in such remaining People’s Paradises as Cuba, North Korea, and China.
Who countenanced and described it better than Orwell with “Animal Farm” and “1984”? And within our own porous American borders, we are still plagued by those insatiable pigs, more equal than the rest of us, tirelessly promising Transformation and Equality for All Americans…while delivering only enslavement for the masses and total power for themselves.
Trump’s election represents America’s re-awakened will to eradicate those pigs from our politics and re-introduce the basic American concepts of INDIVIDUAL life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. NOW is perhaps our final opportunity to turn back an historical century of horror, the cancerous living hell Lenin & Stalin (and his Alinsky-inspired American counterparts Barack and Mrs. Bill) have envisioned for us.
