It is more than disturbing that we’re seeing the same parallel events in the US that have taken place in the USSR and socialist Venezuela. Not just ‘supply chain disruptions’ and the suppression of basic civil rights but almost imperceptible but momentous shifts in the relationship between the governed and the government.
If the anti-liberty left is consistent in anything, it’s that they will persist in the same tired talking points, namely the ‘that wasn’t really socialism lie’. This always begins their ever-elastic definition of the word that conveniently excludes failures of their socialist national agenda in the past. The problem for them is that the parallels are too strong. The repetition of history is too consistent.
Ronald Reagan, one of our greatest Presidents had a hobby of collecting jokes told amongst the people of the failed socialist Utopia of the USSR. One was about a Russian asking another if they had really achieved full communism, is this now full communism and the other one said: ‘oh no things are going to get a lot worse’.
We’re referencing this because anti-liberty leftists love to play Orwellian games with words, creating newspeak with definitions that can be changed at the drop of a swastika. The concept of collectivism and their made-up term socialism are one of their first creations. They do this primarily to deny past failures with the perennial lie that ‘socialism has never really been tried before’.
“Socialism isn’t about free choice, it’s about concentrating power into the hands of government elites—ultimately through force. Socialism is the concentration of power into the hands of government elites to achieve the following purposes: central planning of the economy and the radical redistribution of wealth.”
It’s not their roses and rainbows version that talks about equality and redistributing the wealth to the proletariat because that’s never in the cards. Sadly, rank and file leftists never figure this out, they just accept the propaganda hook, line, and sinker until it’s too late. By that time, big government authoritarianism has become too powerful, and basic civil rights swept away, leaving a socialist oligarchy in business partnerships and government in total fascistic control.
This is called but the anti-liberty left has an even bigger lie than the ‘socialism has never really been tried before’. That is the big lie that somehow a collectivist oligarchy is ‘right-wing’. Anti-liberty leftists never get beyond filling in the blanks of making that false allegation and goodness knows they should have by now, given that they have been parroting the same lie for decades.
At present, we are in the throes of an illegal invasion, rampant inflation, a labor shortage, and a supply chain crisis. All but one is extremely familiar to any economy under the big government central planning of socialism. Even worse is that this is akin to walking into the ocean surf where one only encounters a few small waves that grow larger and larger. Just as it was in the old Soviet Union, things are going to get a lot worse.
Anti-liberty leftists want to waste more of other people’s money that we don’t have buying votes and driving inflation. Winter is coming and despite the prospects of global cooling, global warming, and climate change, heating fuel prices are expected to double. The authoritarians will still want to buy votes and pay people to not work, making the supply crisis even deeper. Then we have them wanting to force vaccine mandates and Nazi passes down our throats. Rest assured, ‘Brandon’ and his merry band of Bolsheviks will find something else to screw up.
We’re just now seeing the empty shelves and skyrocketing prices familiar to anyone in a “worker’s paradise”. We’re also witnessing an imperceptible but momentous shift in the relationship between the governed and the government. All over the nation, socialists of the anti-liberty left are shifting into a dictatorial frame of mind.
It was more than outrageous that the Harris/Biden/Obama regime wants to give $450.000 to illegal invaders for breaking the law. That they would even consider such a move should be stunning to everyone. That signals to everyone is that the regime doesn’t care what we think, they don’t care to get our consent for such a move, and they are likely to do it anyway. This means they have gone beyond the bounds of a rational, republican form of government. They no longer have the consent of the governed.
We’re also seeing what is all too familiar to those living under the boot of authoritarian socialism: A national media all too willing to be the propaganda organ of the anti-liberty left. It’s epitomized by none other than the American Pravda and a piece of propaganda that would have made Kim Jong Un proud just from the headline alone: How ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ became code for insulting Joe Biden
Apparently, in the past few months, our dear leader has been elevated to people beyond criticism. These days that is now ‘insulting’, how long before that is deemed ‘hate speech’ and consequently verboten? Some of the expressions in the piece such as: ‘Americans are accustomed to their leaders being publicly jeered’ are transitory to a style of authoritarian socialist propaganda only seen in banana republics in which a nation’s leadership is exalted above the people.
Later in the piece, they refer to the 2020 presidential election and a hefty shove to the Overton window on the propaganda surrounding the steal:
A portion of the U.S. was already angry before the Brandon moment, believing the 2020 presidential election was rigged despite a mountain of evidence to the contrary, which has stood the test of recounts and court cases.
A ‘mountain of evidence’? That is certainly a new development. The national socialist propaganda organs used to parrot the ‘no widespread voter fraud’ talking point or similar useless and irrelevant pablum. Now that switched to a ‘mountain of evidence’. Somehow the scene of a big pile of Dinosaur scat from the movie ‘Jurassic Park’ comes to mind, but that’s only the ‘mountain of evidence’ that is relevant. There is a mountain of evidence that points to massive amounts of cheating and fraud by the anti-liberty left in the election, but that probably isn’t what they are referring to. That evidence came from the recounts they referenced in the piece and most of the court cases weren’t decided on the merits.
Anti-liberty leftists have more excuses for the abject failure of their base ideology than they have definitions. But these go hand in hand in their attempts at replicating failure, all for their goal of gaining absolute power. We’re just at the outer bands of the approaching hurricane. The wind and the rain are just starting and it will get much worse from here.
Back when the economy they inherited from President Trump had put the nation on the road to recovery, the authoritarians were quick to take credit for any good economic news. Now, with the beginning effects of authoritarian socialism negatively impacting the system, they are contradicting themselves with claims that it was the COVID crisis all along.
Again, socialism isn’t about free choice, it’s about concentrating power into the hands of government elites—ultimately through force. Socialism is the concentration of power into the hands of government elites to achieve the following purposes: central planning of the economy and the radical redistribution of wealth. The authoritarian left is trying to centrally plan the economy while raising taxes and increase spending – redistributing other people’s money. All of that is gumming up the works and demonstrating once again that socialism doesn’t work… as though 400 years of failure and a mass murder death toll, exceeding 100 million dead should have been enough factual evidence already.
Authoritarian socialism has already failed in the United States as it has everywhere else. Maybe this was how it was supposed to end all along. After all, the first explorations in collectivism were in the Jamestown and Plymouth colonies. While much later an experiment in what was called socialism for the first time took place in New Harmony Indiana in 1825 and ended shortly after as it inevitably failed.
Perhaps it was only fitting that its last failure was the place where it all began. History teaches us that it’s only going to get worse from here, so there is no point in continuing down this dead-end road. The time has come for liberty-minded people everywhere to make that clear.
