Why do those Escaping the Evils of Socialism….

…want to turn the place they escape to into what they escaped from?

 

While I happen to agree with the Fascism charge… is it ‘racist’ to disagree with the Oppression, Despair, Destruction and Death directly tied to the ideology of Socialism?

No, it is not.


4 out of 5 Socialists Recommend Controlling Speech

In a Recent unscientific Survey 4 out of 5 Socialists said they believe Offensive Speech should be Controlled.

Rather than stand on Principle and cast Sunshine on supposedly ‘deadly’ speech expressed in newspapers, television and the internet thus allowing All if Us to condemn it…  Our Government prefers to sidestep that argument and ask for Increased Control of all methods of expression.

Why?

Because controlling Speech is an important weapon employed by those in power to remain in power.

Think about it this way; If you’re doing things people hate you for, what better way to avoid their anger than to make sure they never know about it… and if they do find out, you can tell them whatever you want while making sure nobody can challenge your hogwash.  If anyone tries to shed light on your crappy behavior anyway… send some Force their way.

Brilliant!

Of course you need to convince enough people these controls ‘are for their own good’ or, in pure Irony, ‘to safeguard Free Speech’.  Those that support you, for whatever unimaginable reason, will nod in agreement.  They might even grab a Starbucks, Stop Bathing, Misspell a Sign and Sit in a Park.  Get enough Useful Types like these and you’ve inoculated yourself against all those who recognize the danger you represent.  Machiavelli would be Proud.

We are seeing this play out right in front of us.

New Controls are being created for the Internet.  Last time I checked the Internet has done pretty well without them…

It Keeps getting Faster…  It Keeps getting Better… all by Private Means.

But it represents all that Socialists believe is Evil.

Free Speech.

And that cannot be tolerated.

If you can’t make fun of someone’s Faith, what Can you make fun of?

And since Socialism/Populism/Liberalism often serves as Religion for Atheists… it’s not even a jump, leap or reach.

By the way, the Fifth Socialist who didn’t Approve of Controlling Speech is having his Mind made Right by the other 4 as I type this out.


When it’s not an Argument you want to have…

When you’re a Liberal and you clearly see the danger in defending Free Speech…

When a Socialist is placed in a position having to feign outrage over the motivations of terrorists when they kill those who have done nothing more than draw cartoons…

What do you do?

Liam Neeson Demonstrates:

Action Hero Liam Neeson on Paris Attack: US Gun Ownership ‘A [Bleeping] Disgrace’

When you’re Liberal Progressive who see’s the possibility of the narrative going the wrong way…

What do you do?

Washington Post Columnist Eugene Robinson Demonstrates:

Eugene Robinson:  France Attacks would be Deadlier in US Due to Guns

When you’re a Democratic Socialist and you recognize Control of Speech is one of the most powerful weapons you have when it comes to defending yourself from your population…

What do you do?

Paris Demonstrates how it has no word for Irony in French… or is it in ‘Marxist’?:

France ordered prosecutors around the country to crack down on hate speech, anti-Semitism and glorifying terrorism, announcing Wednesday that 54 people had been arrested for those offenses since terror attacks last week left 20 dead in Paris.

 

Leftists cannot allow the power to control speech to slip through their fingers after working so diligently to get the public to support it…

Genuinely Free Speech would be a defeat taking decades for Socialists to recover from.

 


Occupying Irony

If you Scream Loud Enough you’ll get what you’re Asking For.


Fighting to be Your Voice

An exchange I had with a friend brought something to mind.

We were discussing Organized Religion’s drive to be the Voice of The People.

Our conversation reinforced my belief that Organized Religion has a tendency, a desire, to be Government.

What I mean by this is The Church is not Fighting For your Voice… They are Fighting to BE your Voice.

This is synonymous with Statist governing Theory and it’s Demand to BE your voice.

Statists expect to be your Agent… in other words, they require the power to make decisions on your behalf, without your knowledge, that you will be liable for.

But it seems what We really want are spokespeople, or rather representatives, who speak Our Mind and execute Our Desires.  These two concepts are not the same.  While having the ability to override our demands… our Representatives would only do so in the very rarest of moments.  And when, if ever, this happens we demand an Explanation as they Work for us and have put us in a position we did not ask to be in.  In turn, They will stand tall to be judged while delivering that which we demand.

Clearly. This is not what we experience now.

I’ve long-held that Marx found compatriots within Europe exactly because his ideas would save the rapidly disenfranchised Aristocracy and Landed Gentry from complete irrelevance.  It’s Telling that Engels, Marx’ Patron, was born of wealth.  It’s also illustrative that many of the wealthy throughout Europe flocked to his ideas… as do much of America’s wealthy do today.

What becomes evident is it’s never been about Social Justice or whatever undefinable platitude you choose.  It’s always been about the Rich retaining their position within Society.  It’s always been about Class Permanence.  And in this regard everywhere Democratic Socialism has been tried it has indeed worked.

I marvel at the Machiavellian Brilliance found in Marx’ ideas in terms of having the Masses support the same Class Stasis they were trying to dismantle.

And without fail… the Masses have succeeded, enthusiastically.  And the Irony is they still don’t understand what’s happened.

But back to the point,

This is the difference between Protecting, and Fighting for, the Individual above all else vs. Protecting, and Fighting for, The Group.

When you ‘fight for the group’ you open yourself up to manipulation by Rich Socialists who have become Professional Manipulators.  This is what the term Useful Idiot means.  When you listen to Rich Liberals tell you how you must change your life and also vote for them again and again, right now, to save the planet, your neighborhood, your family, your vagina, whatever it is you value most… except, of course, your Freedom from Government… and you agree with him without ever asking why he refuses to give up his, you become Useful in the worst way.  It is when you Give Them your Voice that you become a Slave.  And that’s what they want.

It’s easy to comprehend.

Those seeking to protect the Group wish to secure their power as The Voice and remain in that office Forever while providing Their Family, and Their Friends, with the influence and largess the office affords. (Their Friends and Family would expect it… less they would accuse that powerful person of not caring about them.  And of course we want to be liked, loved and grow the power and influence we already have.  All of us want ‘the best’ for those closest to us.  How could you possibly deny Your Child access to medical care that has been structurally denied everyone else if you had the power to do so?  Or, how could you not make sure your Son or Daughter gets that job, even though there are better applicants, when you have the power to ‘make it happen’?  You know this to be true, and it will always be the fatal flaw in every incarnation of Socialism.  Self-Interest from within… and without.  So why do we continue to entertain repeating Marx’ horrid experiment?  But I digress…)

However,

Those seeking to protect the Individual seek nothing else. They do not seek to secure their position to ‘spread the wealth around’ so long as it’s other people’s wealth. They do not seek to expand their power over others ‘to get things done’. They do not seek the office of Representative in order to direct favors to their family and friends.

The latter terrify those now in power exactly because they threaten the legalized theft from the  Masses, as well as jeopardizing the very Scheme embraced by Marx’ patrons 100 yeas ago. The Established System which keeps them in control would be at risk.

Those who seek to protect the Individual understand that the power of Government must be returned to what the Founders intended, which necessitates a Massive reduction.  This reduction would cut the leg’s out from underneath those Liberals, Republican and Democrat, that built their entire Empires on such Power.

Once you recognize this it becomes easier to understand what’s going on in our Country today.
