Stories praising socialists clutter the commentary of our national political landscape.
Increase the national debt to increase taxes to share the wealth.
Those who see it as a viable alternative to capitalism are in for a surprise. In every part of the world that pure Marxist–Leninism has been tried, it failed. They traded collectivism for economic capitalism to save socialism. Those that didn’t became impoverished or went belly up.
The USSR survived until 1991 due to an infusion of capitalism. China opened its economy and the Shanghai Stock Exchange in 1990. And Vietnam established free markets in 1980.
But the anomaly is, those countries that have remained socialist now control the free markets including all of the people’s rights.
And this is unadulterated Fascism.
This is not done to appease the people but to increase control over them when other tactics and methods become ineffective. Like all rogue regimes, Lenin found it necessary to infuse controlled capitalism into Leninism for its survival.
And this brand of “controlled capitalism,” like others, is plain Fascism.
World War II Axis leaders, Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini, ruled hybrid-socialistic regimes. They had to rape, pillage, murder and forcefully intimidate others to accept their brand of government.
All forms of socialism need a controlled political environment of heavy-handed absolute-power to survive.
If we look at the new left and what was accomplished with Obama and the progressives that came before him, there is not much left on Alinsky’s bucket list. With this new Congress they have the momentum and the machine in place to finish the job next election.
When they control the White House and the Senate, the only thing that stands between republicanism and socialism is The Supreme Court. They can do a lot of damage to our nation before a bad law ever reaches The “court of last resort.”
They’ll use the unconstitutional powers of the existing federal agencies to do this while Americans sleep comfortably knowing they were able to stop the attack of Socialism while the left leaps for joy.
They will turn republicanism into Capitalistic Socialism and it will be too late to do anything about it.
They re-brand their government to make it sound new and improved.
But whether it’s called Democratic Socialism, Socialism, or even Leninism it will always be Fascism is disguise.
As Mussolini said, “Fascism is socialism and capitalism combined to produce an ideal society.”
So, do not be surprised when the progressives sound off about their latest game changer, “Capitalistic Socialism”. A name is just a name.
“If it promises the same, and delivers the same, and it smells the same” then you know it’s the same – Fascism by another name.
