Socialism is defined as social control of the means of production, which results in redistribution of wealth. Government of the United States has been moving continually closer to socialism since at least the presidency of FDR. And the American people have been blithely following along, lured by the false promise of “free stuff”.
Granted, “free stuff” is tempting. But it is ultimately destructive. No other than Vladimir Lenin clarified the danger. He said, “The goal of socialism is communism”. Most Americans don’t get the seriousness of this connection.
Ed Blaejewski (Special Operations Speaks, 8/24/15) noted that “Joseph Stalin said, ‘America is like a healthy body and its resistance is threefold: its patriotism, its morality and its spiritual life. If we can undermine these three areas, America will collapse from within.’ (Khrushchev later repeated this). Since at least from 1970-current Liberalism has made this quote their mission statement.”
I would suggest that the left has been working to destroy America since the end of World War II. The House Un-American Activities Committee and the Army McCarthy Hearings pursued this reality during the 1950’s. The very enemy they pursued undermined both.
The goal of leftists was to infiltrate media, entertainment, education, government, and the military. They have succeeded. Led by Obama, they no longer even try to hide their evil allegiance. They have divided the country along racial and class lines, created false hope through false promise and destroyed true hope.
America is on the downside of greatness. We can still turn it around, but that will mean seeing the truth and acting on what is right instead the lie of “free stuff”.
