Socialism is Bad MmmmKay

Marijuana was completely legal until the government said that it wasn’t. Hemp production interfered with cotton farm special interest groups. They demonized Marijuana and coined the catch phrase Reefer Madness! It is still demonized today. Alcohol was legal until Prohibition. It was demonized from 1919 to 1933 when it was miraculously made legal again under government control. Was there anything inherently bad about alcohol that it had to be made illegal? No, the government just wasn’t making any money on it. They had to take it away, make us want it really bad, so much so that we wouldn’t mind if they let us have it back with stipulations—a sin tax.

My point being is that the government will say that anything is bad or wrong or illegal if they are not gaining from it in some way—usually monetarily. This is also true of certain political ideologies. The government plays these little mind games with us, using propaganda to make us think that certain ways of thinking are unpatriotic and dirty. It’s bad, because we say it’s bad. We are being mind-fucked.

Quotes from George Orwell’s 1984:
“And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed—if all records told the same tale—then the lie passed into history and became truth. ‘Who controls the past’ ran the Party slogan, ‘controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.'”
– George Orwell, 1984, Book 1, Chapter 3

“Day by day and almost minute by minute the past was brought up to date. In this way every prediction made by the Party could be shown by documentary evidence to have been correct; nor was any item of news, or any expression of opinion, which conflicted with the needs of the moment, ever allowed to remain on record. All history was a palimpsest, scraped clean and reinscribed exactly as often as was necessary.”
– George Orwell, 1984, Book 1, Chapter 3

I think we compartmentalize everything and believe that certain things can never touch or co-exist like socialism, capitalism, communism. But they do coexist. They all ebb and flow into each other. Can you really have pure capitalism? Do people really want pure capitalism? Do you now what they would entail? It’s all just Propaganda. We are trained to believe that Socialism and Communism are dirty words.

1. a theory or system of social organization based on the holding of all property in common, actual ownership being ascribed to the community as a whole or to the state.
2. (often initial capital letter ) a system of social organization in which all economic and social activity is controlled by a totalitarian state dominated by a single and self-perpetuating political party.

Marx also detailed the 10 essential tenets of communism, namely:

Central banking system
Government controlled education
Government controlled labor
Government ownership of transportation and communication vehicles
Government ownership of agricultural means and factories
Total abolition of private property
Property rights confiscation
Heavy income tax on everyone
Elimination of rights of inheritance
Regional planning

^Some of these Communist tenets do exist her in the United States. What are you going to do about it? Eliminate public education?

After WWII, everyone got nervous about Socialism and Communism, because they associated these political ideologies with crazy fucked up dictators like Stalin and Hitler. These leaders were fascist totalitarians. Any political leader has the capacity to be corrupted regardless of political ideology. So even though we have socialism in our society today, we don’t call it socialism, because that’s a dirty word.

1.of or pertaining to a centralized government that does not tolerate parties of differing opinion and that exercises dictatorial control over many aspects of life.
2.exercising control over the freedom, will, or thought of others; authoritarian; autocratic.
1. (sometimes initial capital letter ) a governmental system led by a dictator having complete power, forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism, regimenting all industry, commerce, etc., and emphasizing an aggressive nationalism and often racism.

Tactics used to demonize Socialisim/Communism:

Red Scare – U.S. witch hunt for Communists. If you were even remotely unpatriotic, you might be considered Communist—thus a threat the U.S. Today we would use the word Enemy Combatant, and they would send you to Guantanomo Bay. This was if you expressed any views in opposition to the government. Forget about Free Speech.

Cold War –USSR vs The West (aka U.S.) U.S. tried to push Democracy and Capitalism onto Communist Russia. This led to the Nuclear Arms Race and Space Race to see who had the bigger dick.

Democracy does not equal Capitalism.

–noun, plural -cies.
1. government by the people; a form of government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised directly by them or by their elected agents under a free electoral system.
2.a state having such a form of government: The United States and Canada are democracies.
3.a state of society characterized by formal equality of rights and privileges.
4.political or social equality; democratic spirit.

Democracy actually sounds like it might have some socialistic properties.

Everyone demonizes everyone else. Conservatives demonize Liberals and Socialism. Liberals demonize Conservatives, Capitalism and Patriotism. I think somebody is purposefully manufacturing rifts between us. There is NO difference between the Republican and Democratic Parties. They are all friends behind the curtain. They have to make it look like they are enemies, so that we will be satisfied–so we can pretend that there’s a choice. But they are all together working toward this secret invisible goal. More money for them.

They want us to fight. That person believes in gay rights and a woman’s right to choose, so they turn left. You believe in God, Guns and a baby’s right to life, so you go right. But those are the issues that the politicians present on the surface. They don’t give a damn about my issues or your issues or the environment or aborted babies. They use those issues to divide us, so they have the control.

Whether we have Capitalism, Socialism or Communism—the people at the top always make the most money and make all the rules. So it really doesn’t make a difference. Not really. There’s too much corruption in government for there to ever be any real change.

An economic system in which investment in and ownership of the means of production, distribution, and exchange of wealth is made and maintained chiefly by private individuals or corporations, esp. as contrasted to cooperatively or state-owned means of wealth.

Privately controlled could be a mega corporate-conglomeration or an independent small business owner. Capitalism includes both Wal-Mart, your source for cheap plastic crap from China and the farmer selling his crops at the Farmer’s Market. I don’t think the founders of Capitalism ever envisioned Wal-Mart. There is also Free Trade in Capitalism– your job sent to Mexico or China. Where do you see an opportunity for the hard-working man to be a part of this free market? Getting on top? Making lots of money? Big Markets are going to squash the little man or the little woman. You only make money and get on top if you are already making money and on top. But these Corporations have jobs. That means money for the little guy. If we can’t make money on our own, we have to prostitute ourselves out to someone else.

We have all been programmed to believe certain political ideologies are superior to certain other political ideologies. Just as we have been programmed to believe that certain religious beliefs are preferred over certain other religious beliefs.

Remember we have all been Mind-Fucked. Beware of the Thought Police.
