Progressive Communism

This short article covers only general principles, but if America ignores these realities, the evils of collective totalitarianism is our future. If any of this is wrong, just comment. Research it yourself, and share what you learn. If you use Google, you might have trouble finding the actual philosophy stuff. It will all be glowing recommendations of how nice it will be once we evolve. After all, Communism has not yet been tried — just poorly attempted — because we have not been ready to evolve.

“Progressive” is coined from the progress from savagery to feudalism to capitalism to socialism to communism. It is 100% communist ideology. Marx and Engels believed and taught this as evolution. The ultimate joy and liberty in the end was to do whatever we want in a society where we necessarily want the same things. Once there, everything selfish will be for the good of all. Selfishness, the highest virtue. We will be happy.

This philosophy of Marx and Engels is based on Georg Hegel’s ideas. Communism shares his religious concepts. Communism is metaphysics, so it replaces God with something better. That is why “God is dead.” God is replaced with perfect society without need of morals or ethics. It is entirely an ideal of a flawless human condition without contradictions, built on the “selfish will to the communist good.” Communism is god. It will tell you what to do and how to think. If you obey and act according to the common will, you will be in Paradise. “Primitive religions” are not only useless, but dangerous obstacles to Communist perfection. It is, of course, “survival of the fittest.” That is why society’s desperate lecherous and stupid will be used to fight against the capitalists. They are expendable.

Communism requires “evolution of mind” to allow the creation of the “new freedom.” The specific order is that savages are free. Savages traded their “freedom” for the “bondage of society and submission to religion and conscience.” Hegel felt it was time to remove those chains by making man submissive to the evolved common will.

Marx and Engels then argued that we would evolve into a common ideology (through practice and reeducation.) That would result in enlightened selfishness, because we all want the same thing. That simply meant creating the same desires in all of us (socialism) until we achieve perfect selfishness (communism.)  Then, one person could ably and effectively dictate the whole world order because we would all be on the same page. When the dictator dictates, we all joyfully cooperate. Think of Star Trek, and the Borg.

The Borg are a fantasy humanoid civilization who desired idealistic perfection. To do this, they started assimilating all species into a self-maintained “brain trust.” All Borg have a common mission and purpose. Individuality is stripped. Each member of Borg society is controlled, of course, by the Collectivist Borg. The Borg Queen was created as a single unifying voice. The Borg reflect the philosophy of Hegel, Marx and Lenin perfectly. Communism, they knew, requires a dictator. (first citizen, core leader, chairman, etc.)

Collectivism includes “Progressive Socialism” (or the Orwellian notion of “Democratic Socialism.” This kind of Democracy replaces “the will of the majority” with “what is best for the evolution of society.”) It also includes variations.

Fascism and Nazi-ism are both powerfully Hegelian Socialist evolutionary designs, but the evolutionary mind says, “There has been no communism, and those were not communist ideals.”

Bear in mind that both Socialism and Communism in numerous forms have been successfully implemented in Russian, China, Cambodia, North Korea, Cuba, and many other European, South American, Asian, and African nations. Virtually all of them require the death or imprisonment of large portions of their own people “for resistance to the Borg,” and violent revolution. Even on paper, you must be happy and content in Communism. There is no room for non-conformity. Pol Pot killed around two million. Hitler killed 11 million, Stalin killed 20 million. Mao killed around 50 million. If you are not evolving, you are a savage, feudal, fundamentalist capitalist. What would you expect?

Communism is not a “welfare state.” It is not a source of free stuff. You will have a job, and you will do it. It will be assigned to you by the Borg, based on the needs of society as seen by the first citizen or Queen. You will get just what the Borg thinks you need. “Free” lunch programs, daycare, healthcare, education, transportation, etc. are expensive. That is why Bernie, Kamala, and Elizabeth simply say, “We’ll tax the rich.” The fact is, the rich cannot afford it. Real communists know that. So do you. Communists will gladly pay for all of society by their selfish hard work. “From each according to his ability, to each according to his need,” deteriorates quickly into “from each in his poverty, to each according to what remains.” You will desire to pay with harder work, which will be required of you. Hegel’s “yoke of necessity” is capitalism. You only think you need it. Of course, you will be happy.

These ideas are not “the evil world of communism according to Dave Delany.” They are accurate communist ideals filtered through reality.

Evils of Capitalism

In a brief and powerful private conversation, one of my dearest and wisest friends shared a thought on the evils of capitalism.   He said, “I am a staunch capitalist, but I also know capitalism doesn’t work.  It doesn’t work because humans are not capable of being at liberty without exploiting one another.” 

He’s absolutely correct, of course.  Every “-ism” is corrupt, abusive, and ultimately evil.  Freedom includes the liberty to exploit our fellows.  As free as we are even under the absolute liberty granted to us by God Himself, the tendency always falls to the wretched freedom to hurt people.  Like me, my friend sees that among the concoctions of mankind, nothing can fairly or decently displace freedom, or economic individualism . . . the obvious and simple system of natural liberty,” according to Adam Smith. 

That, in turn, reminded me that “Capitalism” is a pejorative coined by Socialists in the late 19th Century.  While still in diapers, Socialists already clamored to destroy liberty, religion, morality, and economy.  Their ambition?  Abject control!  Again and always, the very clear and persistent damnation of man as individual and morally responsible.  Socialism must hate God, personal responsibility, freedom, and every honest character trait of mankind. Again and always, the foolish desire is to make mankind “morally good, but dependent on the corrupt leadership of a human king or council.”

Even Bob Dylan recognized that, “You gotta serve someone — now, it may be the Devil or it may be the Lord, but you’ve got to serve someone.”

I most strongly encourage you to read the experience of the Prophet Samuel in the 8th chapter of the first book bearing his name.  It is in the “Old Testament” and should be credible to all believing Jews, Christians, and Muslims.  The foolishness of the rebellious people should be obvious to the rest of mankind, even if they think the alternative is individualism and reason rather than obedience to God.

Several years ago in a private conversation with Stuart Briscoe, he insisted that “all human government is Babylonian government!”  At the time I insisted with equal vigor that liberty in place of Babylon would prevent that.  Now I know that liberty becomes the root and branch of libertine evil, or Free Babylon. 

Left to our own devices, we all form our own corrupt little autocracies.  Without God, it must be a Devil and one form of Babylonian government or the other. Unless we tend to obey the authority of God, Nature’s God, and Natural Law, we tend to obey our evil human nature.  We choose a king, suffer, impose our evil permanence, decide what’s best for everybody, and kill, conquer, and suppress to establish and maintain it.

That brings us full cycle: the only hope we have from generation to generation isn’t that somehow we’ll be good and do well.  That simply is not possible.  Our last desperate hope is that we can preserve enough liberty for good to survive.  Man — us — We, the People, will always choose the wrong way and return perennially to the wretched little king of Babylon.  Only the constant prayers of the momentary righteous and the rebellious spirit against wholesale authority will let us survive for another round.  As my friend said, “I am a staunch capitalist, but I also know capitalism doesn’t work.  It doesn’t work because humans are not capable of being at liberty without exploiting one another.”  

God, and God alone, forgive us.

 

Truth About Communist Lies

In our modern world, few people will tell the truth about Communism and Socialism.  The first truth, unfortunately, is that Socialism is merely the “path.”  When Marx spoke of “a dictatorship of the proletariat,” he meant exactly that — societal dictators born of destructive masses.  Gangs of ignorant and uneducated people dedicated to killing and replacing the competent and capable workers and leaders of society.

Granted, new systems of forcing Communism speak of “peacefully” bringing in this transition.  “It can be stolen without violence,” they say, yet the goal must remain as Marx demanded: tear apart the capitalists’ “dictatorship” and establish workers’ dictatorship in its place.

The next lie is to assume a Communist ever tells the truth.  To reason from history, Communism is always a lie that fears truth.  In the 1920s right through the end of the 80s, Communism lived primarily as “democracy,” finally leaking out as “democratic socialism” as the new millennium dawned.  Yet “democracy,” defined as the will of the majority, never darkened a Communist’s ambitions.  Now we learn that was never the goal, but rather to compel  us to do as we should, not as we choose.  The choice of “should, according to . . .” is left to the Communist masters, the experts, the geniuses of Communist aspiration.  Yes, those would be the proletarian tyrants who know nothing and never interfere.

But of course we laugh together, because the proletariat are too uncivilized and brutal — fresh from their violent campaign of removing the bourgeois, that is.  They need a season of monomaniacal dictatorship first.  Even Marx told us so.  The morons can’t run anything except the violence.  Not yet.  First they need a leader.  After more than 100 years, we still live in the age of Communist “leaders,” still awaiting the hand-off to the ignorant proles.  They only need to suffer a few more generations before the Nirvana kicks in.  Maybe when God really dies.

Oh, I know.  People in America don’t really want Communism or its lies.  I hear it all the time.  “We are not Communists!”

We just want to rip apart the nation, and chew it up.  We sneer at God and country.  We want a “whole system” to control us all together as one.  Yeah, you know.  Good leadership without corruption, and without some ridiculous living, loving God to rule over us.  Not a limited, Constitutional government, but a complete, promising dictatorship that will lead to real freedom.

We’re so much better than that.  We prove it daily.  And that’s my lie for today.

Murderous, Impoverished Tyrannies

According to communists, the goal of communism is a stateless, classless society. Communists believe this can happen if the rich and powerful are stripped of their wealth and influence so that the poor and downtrodden can control things.

This never happens, of course.  Every Communist attempt ends in tyranny.  Financial success comes from capitalism, generally reintroduced several generations after the poverty and misery have taken a dreadful toll.

In a private conversation, a friend commented that the Communist Chinese economy was improving faster than our own in America.  I had to remind him that it was improving because of a return to capitalism and free trade, mixed with a virtual state sponsored slave labor.

Rather than release the downtrodden from oppression, Communist states invariable murder large segments of their brethren.

In order to talk about Communism, leave the ridiculous theories at the door.  If the discussion is how things ought to be in heaven, or might be if we were all super nice people, you will never implement it on earth.

With so many attempts under the world’s belt, it should be clear that the sanguine hopes for Communism will invariably lead to murderous despotism.

And in the meanwhile, every Communist attempt on earth will continue to be a murderous, impoverished tyranny.

Roots of Communism

Communism is the practice of theoretical dialectic materialism.  In turn, materialism is the idea that what is, is.  Because it is.  Dialectic means always in tension, changing, and forever in motion.

It might not be clear how an atheistic belief in constantly changing reality leads to the practice of Communism.  More importantly, though, it leads to the principles of Communism.  The first of those principles is that the means of change can be measured by the outcome.  If tearing people’s legs off results in handicap accessibility, then it was good to rip their legs off.

Quite honestly, Communism comes from bringing about the change itself.  To them, that’s political evolution.  Communists have no idea what the result will actually be.  Whatever happens when they rip things apart will justify what they did.  Cambodia, Russia, China, Cuba: they all look very different, yet they all used Communist means.  Change simply allows change because change is good.

And it will keep changing, so that’s good, too.  It’s impossible to understand the horror of Marx, Lenin, Trotsky, Mao, Pol Pot, or even Saul Alinsky unless you first understand that the goals of Communism are destruction first and foremost.

“We must believe that it is the darkest before the dawn of a beautiful new world. We will see it when we believe it.”  You can read every word Alinsky wrote and never once find out what “the dawn of a beautiful new world” looks like.  All that matters to Communism is that it will look different.  The joy is ripping everything down to let something else grow.

No, I really can’t accept or understand that either, but it’s true.

A Communist Bill of Rights

We have turned a Communist eye to our rights in America, abusing almost every aspect of liberty, freedom, autonomy, and responsibility. Not surprisingly, as goes our liberty, so go our rights in liberty.

Communism has two positions on rights: the declared and the applied, or, the before and after.  For instance, Marx argued for a free press, as long as it was used for “the democratic reconstruction of the political system.”  Then what?  Communist leaders, while still a persecuted opposition, strongly support speech rights and later reject them when communism gains ground.  Consider the hippies in the USA. “Freedom” was the mantra in the ’60s.  Now that Communist thought is gaining ground, silencing “hate speech” is their new “om.”

What are rights in Communist terms?  The short answer is, “What rights?”  Here are the 10 short answers with our Bill of Rights in mind.

Amendment I, free religion and free speech:  “In a communist society, the individual’s best interests are indistinguishable from the society’s best interest. Thus, the idea of any individual freedom is incompatible with a communist ideology.” – E. Roberts, Stanford University; “Religion and communism are incompatible, both theoretically and practically.” – Bukharin and Preobrazhensky, The ABC of Communism

The “right perspective” is that Communism is your religion and your voice, so you really should not have a thing to say about it.  If you do, maybe it can benefit the Party, so report it to an official.  heh.  Tell us how that works for you.

Amendment II, right to bear arms:  “The Soviet State, which is nothing else than a great republic of workers . . . [therefore assures that] soldiers work and workers fight. . . [W]hen the whole world is in arms against the Workers’ Republic . . . all must be prepared to fight, and to feed and house the army.” – Bukharin and Preobrazhensky, The ABC of Communism

The Communist perspective, increasingly heard and seen in the United States, is that you should carry arms and kill those whom the state tells you, when the state tells you.

Amendment III, freedom from quartering troops:  See above, “. . . all must be prepared to fight, to feed and house the army.” – Bukharin and Preobrazhensky, The ABC of Communism

Remember comrade, it’s all for the state and the state is for the state! Your house and the army you must feed belong to the state just like you do.

Amendment IV, freedom from search, seizure, and unwarranted inspection:  Of course you can never own anything.  Even you and your children belong to the state . . . This is why you report your comrades.  Officials (brothers of a different, higher sort) will be all over you.  Remember: in a system where you own nothing, nothing of your own will ever be taken from you.  Ever.

Amendment V, self-incrimination, double jeopardy:  Don’t be silly.  You have no “self.”  You will never jeopardize the state, and you would die not to incriminate your Party.

Amendment VI, speedy public trial, a jury of your peers, right to counsel: Again, you are nothing and the state is everything.  Relax!  The state will always strive to protect its cherished interests.  As long as you 100% support the state, it will support your contribution.  Not a worry, little comrade.

Amendment VII: rights of capital, property, and common law:  there is no private capital or common law in Communism.  None of this applies.  The bourgeois must suffer.

Amendment VIII, excessive bail, fines or punishment:  according to whom?  The state will always be fair.  After all, it writes the laws!

Amendment IX, the protection of rights not mentioned: By nature, Communism has no unmentioned rights.  If the Communist state needs a right, it will declare a right.  If not, it doesn’t exist.  Why worry?

Amendment X, retention of rights by the people:  The state is the people.  Don’t try to confuse things.  Of course the people retain all rights.

Again, this critical information helps explain Communism in all its names.  And remember, once the governing class send the proletariat class to die killing the bourgeois class and upper class, and the Bureau and manager class replace the ruling class and then eliminates itself to submit to the People, there will be no classes in Communism — just the Party people, the working people, the enemies of the state, the criminal class, the ancients, and the “others.”

Communism 101

Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Mussolini, Mao, and Pol Pot: six men responsible for the majority of 200 million dead “political enemies” of their various states between 1917 and around 1945.  Every one of them built their philosophies around the works of Karl Marx (other contributors made it worse.  We can look at Hegel, Darwin, Nietzsche and others later.)  Yes, even Hitler took his politics from Communism.

Marx predicted that overthrowing bourgeois rule would take unbelievable violence and “a dictatorship of the proletariat . . . to weed out remaining capitalist elements.”  If that sounds very, very different from “democracy,” you might begin to understand the tactics of “Progressive Democrats.” (aka Socialists, Cooperatives, Liberals, Antifas, Collectives, Bolsheviks, Leninists, Maoists, Fabians, and recently Pragmatists: usually calling themselves anything but Communists.)

Americans need to understand the radical hatred necessary for Communist movements: “a dictatorship of the proletariat.

We all know that “proletariat” means “working class” . . . except it doesn’t.  To Marx, especially, the proletariat were the lowest class of society.  He called them child producers, or “breeders.”  (In fact, he coined the word “lumpenproletariat” to mean the mass (lump) of scum who would birth young proles to fight the revolutions.  But you have to actually read Marx to know this — something the bourgeois Communists will never confess or encourage.

“Bourgeois?  I thought the Communists hated the bourgeois?”

Confusing, isn’t it?  Bourgeois means middle class.  Teachers, nurses, builders, truck drivers, store keepers, etc.  And here you probably thought those were the proletariat!  Nay, nay!  In most of the Western world, Communists are bourgeois.  Bourgeois, though, are the problem!  Pol Pot was especially successful at killing them, but by definition, all Communists hate the bourgeois.  They have money, produce, and eat the bread of the bottom feeding breeders, the proles, who will be armed to kill the bourgeois.

Marx’s goal of “a dictatorship of the proletariat . . . to weed out remaining capitalist (bourgeois) elements,” is simple: weed out capitalists to get their capital.

To a Communist, the best fodder in the war against money makers is a breeder.   And killing money makers lets you steal the money.

With an idealist’s brain, understanding the death of producers is complicated.  Reality simplifies it: Hitler killed Jews for their money.  Pol Pot killed engineers, doctors and lawyers for their money.  Mao and Stalin killed “dissidents” for their money.  It takes money to run a totalitarian state.  That makes Communism easier to understand.  Once you destroy the producers you get to play with their produce. . . until it runs out.

To summarize: Communism means sacrificing the useless to kill the rich so the Party can take the money.

But what a hell of a Party while it lasts.

Antifa (or Fascism vs Capitalism)

Fascism means control by a cooperative of government and industry (the sellers.)  Socialism and Communism are control entirely by government (the governors, or controllers.)  Capitalism is control by the buyers.

Some Americans seem confused about economic systems and the terms that define them.  A whole segment of society call capitalism, “fascism,” without considering the two are actually opposite.  Yet they claim the title “Antifa” for anti-fascist.  At best, they are simply wrong, objecting to corruption without understanding economics.  Yet practically speaking, they object to the very scheme they pretend to support, and damn any change that might bring about the changes they claim to want.  It becomes logical to ask what they want to destroy.

Every “cooperative venture” between government and industry in America comes, not from any system, but from corruption.  There are no plausible ways to give business OR industry the power to dictate any cooperative efforts.

We have plenty of corruption!  We have numerous terms for it, too: “crony capitalism,” ” government monopoly,” “PACs,” and even “unfair practices.”  If these were Antifa’s objections, and correcting them were their objectives, we could almost all sympathize.

What is the goal of Antifa?  It appears to be the destruction of government, the destruction of business, the destruction of economic systems, and the promotion of impoverished Anarchy.  This remains consistent with the goals of other so-called “liberal” and “progressive” groups.

The concept is captured nicely by Saul Alinski in the outdated book, Rules for Radicals.  The idea itself is simple and abrupt: destroy everything and what comes back in its place will be good.  Most Americans look at this idea and think, “that’s stupid!”  So they present it differently.  They call black white, and gray a color.  They call fascist capitalist, and anarchy freedom.

Destruction is an effective route to change. The Bolsheviks, Communist Party of China, Khmer Rouge, etc., all practiced Alinski’s worn out ideas — he simply continued the insane hatred and intentional violence of Karl Marx.  It always includes the insane idea of violent destruction and murderous overthrow, which are the only “practical routes” to Communism.  Marx sounds like an early member of Antifa when he wrote:

“there is only one way in which the murderous death agonies of the old society and the bloody birth throes of the new society can be shortened, simplified and concentrated, and that way is revolutionary terror.”

And that, dear friends, is Antifa.
