Very few appreciate the cynicism of the leaders on the left who have zero interest in your welfare but have an enormous interest in their own. Comments from here.
On the left, the leaders seek power, the proles want security, and the intelligentsia wants to cement their superior social status. None of them care about your prosperity and freedom.
Those who have studied the life and writings of the leading socialist intellectuals — the people who really knew what they were about and were not beguiled by false promises — have always been quite aware that their goal was destruction. Destruction is not an unintended consequence: it is the objective of their philosophy. Does anybody think the guy who wrote the following verse really intended for a brotherhood of man to live as equals in universal prosperity?
“Till heart’s bewitched, till senses reel:
With Satan I have struck my deal.
He chalks the signs, beats time for me,
I play the death march fast and free.”
Or, could it be expressed more explicitly than this:
Worlds I would destroy for ever,
Since I can create no world
In case you’re wondering, those lines are from the poetry of none other than Karl Marx. More modern socialists of expressed similar sentiments. For example, Obama and Clinton’s hero, Saul Alinsky, literally dedicated his work to Lucifer. Sure, it’s a literary allusion … but it’s a literary allusion with significance: it is a dedication to a “the thief who comes not but for to steal and to kill and to destroy.”
Can it be any more obvious, at this point, that the purpose of implementing socialism is to blow up the whole capitalism-based free market republic? They long for the excuse to declare martial law and take it all over.
They are completely content to see everyone poorer and more miserable so long as we are all equally poor and miserable. And, worse, that includes bringing the USA standard of living down to something closer to the world average. The ruling elite will of course be excluded from the program — ya gotta keep up the strength of the ones doing all the thinking and planning for the rest of us.
Yes, socialists create and throw monkey wrenches into the gears of capitalist economies, to slow them down and to stop them. It’s what they do and they’re pretty good at it. The biggest one of all is what they call global warming.
Socialism is a philosophy based on envy. “If I can’t be one of the 1%, then no one will!” The sociopaths who invariably take over socialist countries use envy to steal everything from everyone, destroying the societies in the process.
