Pretty Blue Pill

Communism, Fascism, Socialism

I was reading a blog yesterday where the writer was expounding on the wonderful merits of socialism, and apparently trying to convince others (and himself) that socialism is better than communism because people still have the right to own property. And whereas communism is inherently atheistic, socialism values all religious contributions to the global community.

Getting past the obvious utopian fluff, the fact is communism and fascism are both types of socialism. That’s why the second “s” in USSR stood for “Socialist.” That’s’ also why fascist Benito Mussolini admitted fascists were foremost socialists.

The difference between the two is that whereas the communist would say, “Workers unite,” the fascist would say, “Germans unite,” or “Italians unite.” In other words communism is based in class warfare whereas fascism is based in nationalistic pride.

But neither communism nor fascism nor socialism necessarily has anything to do with atheism as they are both economic, not religious, systems.

In the real world, however, they all seem to be packaged with beliefs that seem more compatible with religious skepticism or downright atheism than anything else. (There was not, in fact, much religious tolerance in France during its deChristianization efforts.)

That’s why Europe began its trek to socialism only after religious belief and practices declined considerably. Actually, I suppose you could argue the two happened in concert—the decline of religion and the increase of socialist beliefs occurred concurrently.

That’s something I always tell my more “enlightened” Christian friends. (Well, at least they think they’re enlightened.) Socialism is absolutely incompatible with Judeo-Christian beliefs.

And it’s always been that way…even in the Bible God tells Samuel that Israel has rejected Him, which is why they want a king. Beforehand, there was no king, but judges who judged based solely on God’s law. There was no concept of Church and State. The “Church” was the people and the people were the state.

And that tension has and will always exist between church and state because people are either going to look toward God as their source of ultimate security or they’ll look to the State. Consider the fact that much of the “new atheist” crowd, who claim as did Marx that religion is the opiate of the people, are almost always dependent on government monies for their research and livelihood and you’ll see my point.

Socialism continually claims a desire to help people as its prime motivation. But the most efficient way to help a person in need is to donate your money or your time to a charitable organization. Why introduce a government bureaucracy? It’s not that hard to find a person in need.

And that’s the difference between utopia and heaven on earth. But I’ll blog more about that another day.

Delusion

Liberals are so delusional. I don’t say that to be mean, but because I honestly believe that a propensity toward delusion is a key requisite to being liberal. And of course the liberal media is there to assist you when reality starts to crowd in on you.

With regard to the massive health bill that Obama is set to sign into law today, Liberals have forgotten that the vast majority of Americans are against it. And that the main reason America elected Obama in the first place is because he posed as a moderate during the 2008 campaign.

But liberals have had a hard time in just about every election since the 2008 election. Why? Because the cat has now vacated the proverbial bag. Obama’s not just liberal, he’s an extremist—possibly socialist, depending on your definition. But one thing’s for sure—he’s not the moderate he played during the campaign.

Yet liberals have convinced themselves that this “victory” is something the American people wanted, even though polls show the opposite. But answer me this, if the American people wanted this, then why does Obama feel the need to “sell” this soon-to-be law to the public?

And with huge majorities in both the chambers of Congress, why did it take so long (and so many back room deals) to pass this legislation?

The fun part of all this will be hearing how liberals manage to keep the delusion going after November.

The Ugly Truth

Ugly Truth

Ugly Truth

Where’s the anger?

Where’s the venom?

Where’s the coverage?

When a right-wing extremist murdered abortion doctor, George Tiller, the establishment media (and much of the rest of the left) had a all-out ball reporting, laying blame, generalizing, and smearing the right.

Their logic went something like this:

Hey you know, one guy on your side committed murder. Therefore all you guys are murderers and extremists and need to be controlled.

Doesn’t the Ku Klux Klan employ similar reasoning?

Hey, one of you niggers raped a white woman, therefore you’re all rapists.

Never mind the fact that only about 14% of white women raped are raped by black men. Facts are such an inconvenience to those intent on hating an entire demographic.

But the difference is this; the Klan doesn’t run the national media.

Yesterday, an anti-abortion activist was targeted and killed by an abortion advocate. Not surprisingly, the press didn’t cover the story with nearly as much enthusiasm as the Tiller killing. Both murders were wrong, according to my beliefs. But for the media it seems that one was more newsworthy than the other.

Interesting. And telling for obvious reasons.

But the truly interesting thing here is the reason why the killing took place.

Evidently the alleged gunman didn’t like the fact that his victim, James Pouillon, held a sign that showed a healthy baby on one side with the caption LIFE, and an aborted (murdered) baby on the other side with the caption ABORTION.

What’s the big deal?

Well in case you’ve haven’t noticed, for many liberals (I won’t say all, for fear of committing the sin of generalizing myself) nothing gets their goat like the uncompromised truth. The last thing they want anyone to see is a real-life image of their version of “rights,” “freedom,” and “choice.”

It is a sad fact of life, manifested in that great time-honored tradition of killing the messenger. Many folks don’t want the truth, and will even kill you to avoid it.
