National and International Socialism, Communism, Fascism, Are They Different?

Socialism, Communism, Fascism, they are all the same in the idea that an [ahem] “enlightened” [suppress guffaw here] ruling clique should rule over all of us, justified by the same excuse used by all tyrants and all dictators of all times: It’s for “our own good”.

National socialism and international socialism are based on one tiny gang of dictators.

Among those who are sincerely interested in doing good, central planning of any category  comes from a momentous hubris, albeit often unconscious hubris. They know what people should do, so they force us to do it. Claiming a majority vote is not a use of force is a cheap intellectual cop-out once we accept the reality, because all government relies on the use of force.

I once was one of those inflicted with that hubris, thinking that a Marxist revolution was the best thing for the peoples of the world. But Marxist revolutions were always ugly revolutions. But Marx’s idea of a transitional dictatorship bothered me until it broke out into “anarchism”, what libertarians would probably call “syndicalist anarchism” or  “left anarchism”.

If my neighbor John Doe takes something from the other neighbor Mr. Jones and gives it to me because I need it, it is still THEFT.

It is theft whether Mr. Jones is a billionaire, millionaire, or earns more than a quarter-million dollars, or not. If he stole it, he stole it. It is still THEFT.

If neighbor John Doe organizes the neighborhood, the whole city or county, and then the state, and gets a majority vote to take something from the other neighbor Mr. Jones by force of “democracy” to give it to me, it still does not make it okay. It is still THEFT.

To such theft, I DO NOT CONSENT. No matter how much good it does me or any other neighbor.

If you do consent, you are accessory to theft, once your sin is exposed.

I gave nearly twenty years of my life to missionary work, and helping others, helping them. Against such love there is no law.

Against theft, there is: Thou shalt not steal

The Daily Bell hits another long one: Soviet goals in the Cold War

I can’t believe some of the ignorant criticisms of the very idea that the Soviet Union did not have an agressive imperialist policy! Their influence in the Comintern is historically undeniable! When I was a Communist in more gullible days, I never thought it to be any secret that Communists had a duty to propagandize for revolution by any means necessary!

Lenin even laid out their plan, you have to try real hard to avoid finding out what he said about first taking Russia, then the masses of China, then subverting (my synonym) Latin America, and then America falling into his hands.

But in the USSR, their military academies have always taught their officers that a nuclear war with the US was inevitable and that whoever struck first would win.

For gosh sake, what do you think they were doing hosting anti-war conferences, including Bill Clinton ahem, during Vietnam? (Which I hated, marched against, and still condemn today as a follower of Christ and libertarian BTW).

What, you think the Soviets weren’t imperialists just because Hollywood only makes CIA movies?

Look at Hugo Chavez, the guy who took his new million-dollar jet –his first “socialist” toy after getting elected– straight to Paris and straight to the prison to see Carlos Ilyich Sanchez, aka “The Jackal”, most wanted terrorist in history until OBL (so bad even Europe hated him) Before seeing France’s head of state. Then to Moscow where he said “I have always been a Leninist”. Beijing: “I have always been a Maoist”. Iran: “I have always been anti-Yanqui”.

He stole his country’s oil money to spread his openly Marxist-Leninist-Maoist Communism to his neighboring countries. So YES A THOUSAND TIMES YES! socialism, especially its parent, Marxism, has always been imperialist. Hugo Chavez and his agents –they captured 100s of them in Honduras after they removed the dictator coup-governing golpista Manuel Zelaya, that you will never hear about on CNN or Fox News either– those agents flooded so many dollars into Honduras trying to put the dictator puppet back in, that the lempira went UP by about FIFTEEN PERCENT!

In fact, there’s a new word in Spanish now! “Narco-imperialista” It means narco-imperialist. That’s because he took some of the drug money they got from the Communist FARC guerrillas to try to enslave Honduras!

And they’re still trying to conquer Honduras, organizing thugs to “occupy” private farmland. And a brave Venezuelan journalist after the November 2009 election uncovered a Chavista plot hatched by the dictatorships of Venezuela and Cuba and their lackeys from Honduras to assassinate reporters and politicians and blame it on the elected government.

If you don’t think socialists are imperialists, look up Karol Cabrera, the most influential journalist against Zelaya in Honduras in 2009. Her daughter murdered, a colleague murdered, in attempts to kill her, she had to finally hide inside a MILITARY base to escape the murderous Chavista beasts. Trying to shut the mouths of the media voices that told the truth to power. Maybe now you can see another possible reason that the people in the American Old Media seem so loving of more government power.

TELL THE TRUTH! Thank you Dr. Tibor Machan for telling the truth!

 

Hugo Chavez passing on; Not much will change, probably (But I remember 2009)

My answer to the Daily Bell article about Hugo Chavez:
http://www.thedailybell.com/28788/South-America-After-Chavez–Not-What-You-Think

Chavez may be loudlyChristian“, but he is NOT “unabashedly” Christian. The writing from The Daily Bell is always intelligent and pretty much grounded in reality, but that one was greatly puzzling. He’s not very Christian at all, any more than the Bolsheviks (“I was always a Leninist”-Chavez visiting Moscow) or the Maoists (“I was always a Maoist”-Chavez visiting China) or the North Koreans (“I was always a Marxist”-Chavez in North Korea)

NOT AT ALL. George W Bush is no more Christian than him, and vice versa.

He is Christian like the Cubans in Miami say about Fidel Castro in the mountains, wearing his rosary beads.

The Marxists learned a lesson maybe from the Mexican “peasants’ rebellion” against their own Marxist president.

Also, he has “redistributed” a lot of the oil revenues in social programs but he has also created a new nouveau riche class, and the POOR have already been getting very restless.

And he is NOT so popular as the American press makes him out to be. This is the same press that LIED about Honduras, where easily 85 PERCENT of the people supported the arrest of auto-coup dictator Manuel Zelaya, aspirant to lifetime presidency who promised a cabinet member (a relative of a close family friend of ours) a lifetime position.

During those theatrical “riots” in Honduras demanding the Chavez surrogate’s return, that “astro-turf uprising” fizzled so bad so fast and got so bad that it took such a whopping major infusion of Chavez money to pay a few dozen at it that the lempira went up TEN PERCENT against the dollar in a matter of DAYS.

Poverty by itself doesn’t breed Marxism. I’m sure the royalty in D.C. and in Caracas and Habana were all flummoxed to distraction by the explosive blowback from Honduras against them.

“We’re poor enough, thanks anyway, we don’t want to be like Cuba or Venezuela, we’d rather be like the US“.

Honduras put a wrinkle in the supposed forced march of Latin America toward socialism.

The mayor of Caracas publicly demanded that Honduras send them a set of cojones.

After their 2009 elections, the president of El Salvador, of the FMLN (the former Communist guerrilla fighters) came out and announced that after all, joining ALBA would NOT be in the best interests of the nation.

The president of Guatemala publicly asked Honduras to join with his country and the other Central American countries to engage in foreign relations together.

Peru’s subsequent elections kept the nation’s distance from Chavez.
