Many Americans, after sixty years of intense propaganda, react to the words “communism” “socialism” or “leftist” the same way your knee reacts when the doctor taps it with that little rubber hammer. This reflex proves that the sixty years of propaganda has done its job.
It is high time to be free of that reflex. Reflexes are for single-celled organisms, not human beings. Refuse to let him tap you with that hammer. The people who produced the propaganda do not give a rat’s arse about either communism or capitalism as shown by the fact that globalist bankers funded both the Bolsheviks and Hitler’s rise to power.
The Nazis and the Commies were used, just like Islamic jihadis were used in Afghanistan, more recently in Syria and most recently Neo-Nazi thugs are being used in the Ukraine. As globalist par excellence Zbigniew Brzezinski told the Mujahideen, “Your cause is right. God is on your side.” Yes, they are not above using God himself if it advances their schemes.
No, they don’t care about left or right, they care about something else entirely, but they need a common enemy for the rabble to focus on. That has worked quite well. But it is high time to step back and think for a change. Were the Nazis, Bolsheviks and the Taliban duped? They probably recognized the tidal wave coming at them and thought they were clever enough to surf it. But the globalist tsunami disposes of its tools when they are no longer useful. That includes Nazis, commies, jihadis, and God.
The global elite use any means to achieve their rather straight forward end, which is well-expressed by a cartoon character, a clever little mouse:
Pinky: Gee, Brain, what do you want to do tonight?
Brain: The same thing we do every night, Pinky. Try to take over the world.
“You’re a lefty, pinko compsymp!” some well-programmed readers may be saying at this point, salivating on cue to the ringing bell. No, I refuse to unconditionally support any man-made ideology, but I think you should be free to consider any of them without knee-jerkiness.
For example, I like these folks:
“All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of their possessions was their own, but they shared everything they had.” Acts 4:32 (early Christians)
I also sympathize with the Diggers, who tried to form communities around supposedly common land in England to plant food crops to feed their families.
“In the beginning of time God made the earth…not one word was spoken at the beginning that one branch of mankind should rule over another, but selfish imaginations did set up one man to teach and rule over another…landowners either got their land by murder or theft and thereby man was brought into bondage, and became greater slaves than the bests of the field were to him.”
The Diggers were attacked, beaten and disbanded. The early Christians were burned and thrown to the lions, but in the end prevailed. They were both technically “communist”, that is, they practiced common labor and property. They were both technically “socialist” that is, they believed in cooperation over competition.
They were not evil, they did not seek to dominate anyone; they just sought to live in peace. Remnants of this lifestyle still exist and always will. Jesus said his followers should be as wise as a serpent and harmless as a dove.
Find a way to live that is honest, loving and that treats others as you want to be treated. The early Christians were of one heart and mind; they loved each other.
Do this while remaining harmless as a dove.
Do this while being wise as a serpent.
And don’t think that love is wishy-washy. Love is the most powerful force in the Universe.
Capitalism just means property rights and voluntary (ie non coercive) interactions in the marketplace.
Capitalism is equivalent to lovemaking. In a system of ‘lovemaking’ everyone owns their own body and all sex is voluntary (consensual).
We do not have capitalism today, except in a very limited way in small pockets, because the government violently controls or monopolises or just steals from most areas of the market. The government even violently imposes a mickey mouse monopolised currency onto us which it controls.
We are conditioned to refer to ‘corporatism’ or ‘corporate fascism’ (the alliance of government’s legalised violence with selected business interests) as ‘capitalism’ or even ‘evil capitalism’ . This causes the general public (eg the Occupy movement) to run to government and demands government increase their violent power to stop evil ‘capitalism’ ….. which government is only too happy to do.
This is like a gang of rapists conditioning their rape victims to call rape ‘lovemaking’ so they will speak against the evil practice of ‘lovemaking’ (consensual sex) and demand more rape.
