The Subterfuge of Socialism

If you feel like you are being attacked every time you walk out the door, you are.  The part of freedom that no one born after the 1970's can possibly understand is how much our fellow citizens, at the behest of their collectivist puppet masters, have entered our lives and decided what we were able to say, think and do. This is a direct attack, not on your house, or your car, but on you specifically as a human being.

People like to think about the government as an amoeba, but it is populated by your neighbors, the ones who go to meetings and the PTA. They are the sort of people who lust after a spot on the Home Owners Association board. As I have said elsewhere, the people in power are hardly ever the people who should be. There is a particular mental disorder that seeks power, most of them are rapists and vandals. This is not aimed at cops, but it does not exclude them either.

To a great degree I am talking about the three RINO county commissioners in Custer County, CO, but not only them either. They are a symptom of what has begun as a sneaking communism that Matt Bracken pointed out in Lies of Omission, the Gramscian theory of communism that hides very well inside socialism until, like an ALIEN, pops out of the chest, having consumed the heart of the community.

For far too long the citizens of this nation have allowed the socialist/communist faction to thrive inside this republic and all for some very good reasons to start with, but those reasons are looking worse all the time. One of them is the idea that no matter who put forth the idea of socialism, that no American would ever go along with it, so let them talk, let them destroy themselves. That hasn't worked very well, because there are an incredible amount of idiots and bonus-seekers bred into America through accepting socialist concepts like Social Security and Medicare, two embedded debt bombs just waiting for enough people to gather around before they go off and kill everyone.

What I am getting at is that communism has been allowed to flourish in this nation as some form of benevolent socialism for a hundred years, all the way back to Woodrow Wilson, a president bought and purchased by the big "trusts" of the previous century, without regard to his politics, which were ultimately devastating, because they were intentionally so. Read anything Wilson wrote and you will see the roadmap for how we got here.

Yes, we are all to blame, because we thought freedom was being free, that exercising freedom was the whole point of it all. We walked our own paths, expecting to be left alone, expecting common decency and mutual respect. That made us easy targets for those seeking something for nothing. Our Christian nature of charity handed them another lever to the public treasury. With all the benevolence of trying to mind our own business, we threw the doors open to the Church and the treasury. Is it any wonder that we have been defrauded by communist pastors and robbed by everyone else?

They have slowly backed those who knew how to use freedom into a corner and it's time to come out swinging. Being quiet has not stopped them and to be honest, screaming won't do any good either. What we see when we look out at our lawns and shiny cars is a nation already divided into the payers and the payees. The payees not only want to take everything you have, they are looking for payback for all the injustices of being a payee, short of getting a job or shutting their mouths. They are looking for the people who built this nation and want to make them pay; they want to insult them as much as break their bones.

I bring up Custer County, CO simply because it is a county that is about 80% conservative Constitutionalists and it has been completely hijacked by fraudulent candidates, liberals who know they could not win a seat in the county as a Democrat, so they switch their party affiliation and vote to pass vicious liberal ordinances to confound and demoralize the citizens. That's the mentality we have been dealing with while we tried to pursue the simple pleasure of life without having a confrontation at ever stop we make.

The crux is, one cannot be a socialist and have no agenda, the whole agenda of socialism is communism. That is the subterfuge of socialism; it is a trick and a lie. That just ain't neighborly. When I was a kid I heard one axiom that made a lot of sense, good fences make good neighbors. Maybe today it has to change like everything else. How about this: Good fences and firearms make good neighbors.

And, lest I be too vague, 80% of Repubicans are liberals, socialists and communists, they just don't understand the definition. Our nation has turned into a cesspool of communism, this is a Soviet-style system already, so maintaining the Soviet nature of it does not make one a conservative or even a patriot.

  1. In a book Two Essays by Ludwig von Mises he states that labels socialism and communism were synonyms until October revolution. When rivers of blood in Russia became too hard to conceal, western Marxists conveniently separated communism (bloody) and socialism (enlightened). In essence they are one and the same, ever were and ever will be. Unlike majority of Americans, I had subjects in school called "Marxism" and "Theory and Practice of Self-Managing Socialism". We were explicitly told that socialism is a stepping stone to communism, where everything will be hunky-dory. We ended up in a civil war.It took decades for war to start, as borrowing money and printing it to create socialist paradise on earth deferred the inevitable. And I can tell you that life wasn't bad at all during that time. What came after was. Pursuing schizophrenic political system like communism must lead to war. The trigger is deterioration of economy. The conflicts built-up in communist political system from ground up, guarantee the bloody outcome. To a varying degree (for example Romania (ethnically compact) and Yugoslavia (ethnically diverse)) for sure, but bloody it always is.

  2. Best as I see it and this is nothing new but conservatives want to live their life and liberals want to tell others how to live. Certainly is true in Custer County.

  6. I remember being in one of the caucuses for a GOP presidential primary, maybe two or three terms ago. It was in Park County, in Wyoming, one of the most allegedly conservative places in the nation. I was astounded at how matter-of-fact people were about blatantly socialist proposals. I learned then that the motto of the GOP is, "It's not socialism when we do it."

    BTW the greatest advance of socialism was the adoption of government schooling from socialist Prussia back in the 1840's. Horace Mann claimed, "Let the Common School be expanded to its capabilities, let it be worked with the efficiency of which it is susceptible, and nine tenths of the crimes in the penal code would become obsolete; the long catalogue of human ills would be abridged; men would walk more safely by day; every pillow would be more inviolate by night; property, life, and character held by a stronger tenure; all rational hopes respecting the future brightened."

    Yes, government schools were supposed to accomplish all that. Somehow it didn't work out that way. John Dewey, the great reformer of American education, said, "You can't make Socialists out of individualists. Children who know how to think for themselves spoil the harmony of the collective society which is coming, where everyone is interdependent."

    Of course Karl Marx, in the Communist Manifesto, also advocated for "free" government schooling.

  7. I have a friend that visits China on a regular basis. Based on his observations of the amount control the state has over the population he said that if China is considered a police state, then so is the USA. He sees about the same level of interference and lording over the Chinese population as the US Government does to citizens here. Sad....

    YOU and your cr*ppy reasoning are EXACTLY the reason WHY we are in the mess we are!!!

    We GOOD PEOPLE *must* become involved in e.g. the PTA and HOAs!!! WE are the only ones who, if properly frounded, should be in such responsible positions.

    But...NOOOOOO...you are promoting the HEAD-IN-THE-SAND "don't bother me, I'd prefer to b!tch, whine and moan about how bad things are AFTER THE FACT!" kind of LOSER.

    YOU and your LOSER reasoning are EXACTLY *WHY* we are in the situation we are in: we surrendered power/control in the name of SELFISHNESS.

    FREEDOM DEMANDS VIGILANCE...and that means being involved in the control of our lives.

    Your sicko thinking makes me vomit.

    3. Longish rant here, sorry. Ignore if you wish.

      Opportunity Cost.

      It is the reason for government. Men wish the opportunity to better their lives and circumstances. The cost is government.

      Hobbes' "war of each against all" is a real thing (as I believe we shall soon experience). Spending 90% of one's time and effort in protecting what one has, leaves 10% to improve one's lot. The time and effort on defense necessitated by the "war of each against all" soon leaves one with little left worth defending, and little ability to gain more.

      Governments are NOT instituted among men to protect individual rights. Governments are instituted among men to allow men the opportunity to improve their lives. To afford most men the time and ability to do so, while a small number of men secure that opportunity for them (i.e., on their behalf). The provision of that opportunity requires the institution and protection of all men's individual rights by that minority entrusted with the authority of government (i.e., enforcement).

      The definition and protection of individual rights is NOT the END of just government; it is the MEANS by which the END of government (providing time and opportunity to the majority) is achieved.

      Government exists to free men from the need to spend so much of their time and effort in protecting their rights personally and individually. Order, enforcement, justice, and law are all means by which governments allow men to produce more. It is intended to reduce the opportunity cost imposed on each man by the personal protection of his own rights.

      This, of course, comes with another opportunity cost. That imposed not by the sustenance of the government; but by the RISK that the government instituted becomes subversive of its intende purpose. If you want something done right, you must do it yourself. So, TRUST in those elected to serve in government imposes the risk that purposes of government will not be "done right".

      When the opportunity cost of having government becomes greater than the opportunity cost of defending one's own rights individually; revolution is the only reasonable outcome. First, however, the principals (the people) must become aware that their agents in government have screwed the pooch.

      Why do I write any of this?

      Well, because (as I posit above) the idea criticized by "Kauf Buch" that conservatives wish for the government (and other individuals) to "leave us alone" is, in fact, the reason for having government in the first place. And "surrendering power/control in the name of selfishness" was the ENTIRE POINT. That we have done so to our detriment was a known risk. That we have identified that the government we put in place (i.e., surrendered power/control to) has ceased to provide the intended benefit and has instead become detrimental to and subversive of our individual rights, merely puts us ahead of the curve ... and in danger.

      That said, however, the idea that the solution to this problem is to enlist in the agencies of that very government is ..., well, ... misguided.

      It is an illusion, or a delusion, to believe that "control/power" can be wrested back by "working from the inside".

      I am not the first to recognize that the opportunity cost OF government now outweighs the opportunity cost of not having that government**. Neither is anyone here the "first" to realize it. But when a minority large enough to cease being considered mere "outliers" comes to this shared revelation, the opportunity for "fixing things from the inside" has long passed.

    4. **I hope this will not be taken to suggest that I am an anarchist. I am not. Our particular government has ceased to provide the benefit for which it was intended -- that being making the risk and opportunity cost of having a government be SMALLER than the risk and opportunity cost of the "war of each against all". No such governent can be perfected; but the need has arisen to make a new attempt (from scratch).
      Will the new attempt fail? You betcha! At some point it will -- human nature being what it is. But lest it be forgotten, the failure of our particular government is not an END STATE. Instead it is merely a threshhold point on a continuum, and I doubt that I need to tell anyone here which direction along that continuum we (and our government) are heading ... and at what velocity and acceleration.

    5. Well stated so what are you doing to mitigate as much a possible the pain that is going to come at the reset...That is the 64 dollar question many people haven't prepared to answer...My answer is the same and will continue to be the same and that is to be building Liberty Communities and then be spreading out from that Community to Counties, States, etc...

  15. I'm reminded of a common phrase from the old Soviet Union: "we pretend to work and they pretend to pay us". The mere possibility of living off of someone else's labor, especially some large faceless mass which certainly produces enough surplus for just me, brings out all of the worst in humans. And with that come rationalization, envy, anger, greed. And with those come violence.

    There is nothing new under the sun. The working class which just wants to be left alone and make its own way in the world in peace is looted from above and from below, its desire for peace scene correctly as a weakness.

    The compassion and kindness of the conservatives allowed the welfare state into existence. We are faced with destruction or destruction: continue on the path of compassion and kindness and see everything we have built and the last of our Liberty destroyed, or embrace our inner demons and meet the enemy head-on, hoping to not completely lose ourselves in the process but knowing damn well we probably will.

    I intend to go down swinging, when the time comes, left with no other choice. I see it like a dark event on the horizon, inescapable. I've seen it there for a long time and I've learned to come to terms with it. Some moments I even embrace it warmly in a kind of radical acceptance of inevitability. Alea iacta eat.

  16. Great point about how many conservatives are really liberals. Republican party is basically Democratic party 20 years ago. 90 years ago our Supreme Court voted 8-1 in favor of forced sterilization of prisoners and institutionalized people. Now a Republican dominated SCOTUS legalized fag marriage...

  17. Excellent quote from anonymous above:
    "We seek no conquest. All we ask is to be left alone." --Jefferson Davis

    Socialism is not liberalism, as per this opinion from a classically liberal SCOTUS Justice:


    "The makers of our Constitution undertook to secure conditions favorable to the pursuit of happiness. .. They conferred, as against the government, the right to be let alone -- the most comprehensive of rights and the right most valued by civilized men. Justice, Louis Brandeis,
    Dissenting, Olmstead v. United States, 277 U.S. 438 (1928).
