Why Communism Never Works by Jorg e Lu is G on zalo Communism is economically backward: Communism works if you’re an insect like an ant. Ants have no individuality, nor personal identity. Ants have no creativity. Ants have no selfish desires whatsoever. Ants don’t even really think. Everything ants do is done primarily by instinct. They don’t have to learn or be taught anything. Each ant is born having an instinctual drive to work for their insect colonies. All each ant ever does day and night is work non-stop for the collective ant state. What Communism does is it tries to force people into being like ants. Yet, human beings are not ants. “Hi-ho, hi-ho, it’s off to work we go...” Humans have private thoughts. They think as individuals. Humans have dreams that inspire them with ideas, and they’re creative. Human beings can imagine things that do not exist, and then from those thoughts they can make reality things that are completely new. Humans are not driven primarily by instinct. Under the right circumstances they are each capable of doing things that no other person has ever done before them. The reason why a free market economy is the only kind of economic system that benefits any human society is that it’s the only kind that takes human nature into account. Human individuality and creativity is not suppressed in a true free market system, it is actually encouraged. If other people like your ideas they will buy into it, and you will be rewarded for your efforts, but under a Communist system the State collects all the rewards while the individual gains very little, or in most cases, nothing at all. For anyone to work hard, he or she needs to be given a reason to do it that is beneficial to him or her. People need a proper incentive to make them want to work. They have to know they have something to personally gain from their labor. The potential for improvement must exist for them. For why should anyone work harder or better, or be creative with any new ideas for improvement, when no personal benefit will come to them for doing it? The incentive of profit and ownership is what drives all workers to improve their creativity and productivity. Competition among both businesses and workers forces a continual raising in productive standards, so as to stay atop their competitors, to strive to reach the “Sleeping on the job?! I will report you to the politburo.” pinnacle of their chosen fields, and set higher goals for others who are striving to reach that pinnacle themselves. A free market economy allows persons the liberty to form their own businesses and sell their goods in the public market. Competition among private businesses forces those businesses to compete for the public’s business and trust. To get them, manufacturers must produce better products and keep their prices affordable, otherwise those consumers will choose to purchase their goods from other businesses who will. Competition forces manufacturers to invest in trying to improve their products at lower prices, because if they are able to succeed in producing a superior product which they could sell at a reasonable price then consumers will buy from them rather than their competitors. Karl Marx was a moron The incentive to obtain greater profit, coupled with this competition among businesses, always leads to improvements in any given industry, because these are what inspire industries to become more inventive. Not only is this a benefit to the industries, but mainly to the public who will gain for themselves a better product at a more affordable price. Consequently, the entire economy is also affected in a beneficial way. When costs are low, consumers will buy more. Thereby, manufacturers and retailers benefit by more sales and increased profits. Increased sales lead to a greater need for businesses to hire more workers to handle the increased demand for more products. Increased profits give businesses the capital they need to pay for more workers. With more jobs available, workers will benefit from higher wages because there will be a bigger demand for better and more inventive workers, and various businesses will compete among each other to hire them. It’s a perpetual cycle. With more people working, and higher wages being earned by workers, there will be more money in the hands of the public to be able to purchase more goods. The economy continues to improve because as the public earns more money to purchase more food, more items, and better products, those products will continue to become better, businesses will make more profits, and there will be more employment available. The profit incentive is what gives farmers the desire to produce more food than they need for themselves. The chance to gain wealth is what gives inventors the incentive to attempt to build better machines to farm more land more effectively. The profit incentive inspires agricultural scientists to create better pesticides, or genetically develop better crops that will grow faster and Moe, Curly, and Larry: The Three Stooges bigger, and so on. The incentive of profit for the individual is the reason why free market nations always produce abundant amounts of food for its people, while at the same time Communist/Socialist nations never have enough. No Communist nation’s production could ever compare to the production of any free market system precisely because there are no incentives for the worker. Workers under a Communist economy cannot profit, they do not own their own homes or land, and there is little or no room for personal advancement in a Communist society. Ants. No great new ideas, inventions, or technological or medical advancements ever originate out of a Communist system, precisely because no one is allowed get rich or reap any of the benefits of their own personal labor and inventiveness. The “Conformity, conformity, State alone reaps all of the rewards of the individual laborers. conformity, my little ants...” Under a Communist economic system, the State provides for its people work, food, clothing, shelter, health care, everything. The Communist state controls all the means of business and manufacturing. All industry is State-run, and all land is State-owned. There are no competitors in a Communist economy because the State does not allow private ownership of business under it. Communism is a government-controlled monopoly over everything. Industrial standards always remain low and never improves because there are no competitors with the State to set higher standards. Therefore, Communism is inherently a dysfunctional system on any practical economic level. The Communist system is inherently repressive: Left-leaning scholars often claim that the form of Communism that Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels envisioned and the type of despotic government that manifested itself in places like Russia, China, North Korea, Vietnam, Romania, Cuba, or any other place where Communism was put into effect, are different. However, the more anyone truly understands the concept of Communism, the more one comes to realize that a despotic type of government is the only kind that could ever possibly control a Communist state. To keep necessary products affordable, Communist/Socialist states will impose heavy price controls on all items. To keep the cost of manufacturing low, Communist states will limit the amount of wages people earn. To ensure that everyone in the State has what he needs, and that nobody is buying more than he needs (to resell the items later for profit), the Communist state will impose strict rations. To ensure that every area in the country is rationed fairly, the Communist state will have to know how many people are at any given place at any given time, so the State will limit the people’s mobility by imposing Friedrich Engels was a blithering idiot heavy travel restrictions. The reason why Communism is the government of choice for power-hungry dictators is obvious. Through this system, they can more easily gain and maintain control over a people. The more the public relies upon the State for its survival needs, the more power and control the State has over their lives. No- where in the world has Communism ever existed without human rights being trampled on and a vicious dictator at its head. “Take that, and that, you ants!” For the public to be content living under a Communist system, it must be willing to suppress all personal desire and human individuality for the benefit of the “collective unit” and abandon all desire for profit or personal reward. All individuals must be happy living where the State wants them to live and working at the job the State gives to them. They have to feel content being unable to own any of the land they live or work on and they have to be happy with the notion that under Communism the relationship between men and women, and parents and children, is irrelevant in comparison to the duty of the worker to the State. The Communist concept is in opposition to human nature and human desires. Given the liberty to choose their own way, the majority of people would not choose to labor for the benefit of the collectivist State. They will not love the State more than their families and friends. When people have liberty, they will choose to labor for their own benefit and the benefit of their families. Therefore, Communism is a system of government that is always imposed, and rarely chosen. Wherever people do choose it in the beginning, they inevitably later regret the choice after they feel the weight of “We will make you conform even if it kills you!” Communism pressed upon them. Communism cannot survive in any facet of human society without people being forced to live under its oppressive boot, and by having walls erected around them to prevent them from escaping it. Thereby, it is despotism that maintains the Communist State, for once its boot is lifted even slightly from the public’s throat, the people will immediately pull themselves away from it. The evil of the Communist ideology is explained fully in the many books and essays of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, An example of Communist conformity in Cambodia the “creators” of modern Communism. To them, Communist revolution was always more than merely changing the relationship between industry and its workers. Through the Communist system they wanted to restructure all of human society on every level, including the structure of the family relationship itself. Marx and Engels considered marriage to be a hypocritical form of legalized prostitution. They said, “The bourgeois sees his wife a mere instrument of production… Bourgeois marriage is, in reality, a system of wives in common.”1 They claim that the upper classes (which they call “bourgeois”) have been seducing the wives and daughters of the lower class (which they call “proletariat”) for years, along with true prostitutes, as well as each other’s wives. Thereby, Marx and Engels say Communism would eliminate what they perceive to be a hypocritical union (they believe it is artificially structured and exists only because it is a product of imposed societal pressures) by eliminating marriage. They claimed that “the two bases of traditional marriage…[are] the dependence rooted in private property, of the woman on the man, and of the children on their parents,” 2 as well as their need for money. Marx and Engels claimed that if (what they believed to be) the foundations for marriage were eliminated then the marriage union would cease to exist, because the reasons for it existing (as they perceived them) would not Leon Trotsky was a half-wit exist. They said, “The communists have no need to introduce community of women [free love]; it has existed almost from time immemorial…What Communists might be reproached with, is that they desire to introduce, in substitution for one hypocritically concealed, an openly legalized community of women [free love].”3 (NOTE: From the beginning, and even to this day, Communists have subtly used women to recruit many men to their movement by seducing them and offering sex.) In The Communist Manifesto, Marx and Engels belittled the family unit by asking, “On what foundation is the present family…based?” They answered themselves with, “On capital, on private gain.”4 They advocated the abolition of the family bond, through a Communist system. They wrote, “Abolition of the family!…Do you charge us with wanting to stop the exploitation of children by their parents? To this crime we plead guilty…The Bourgeois clap-trap about the family and education, about the hallowed co- relation of parent and child, becomes all the more disgusting.”5 Mao Zedong was a dunce They said, “The bourgeois family will vanish as a matter of course when its complement vanishes, and both will vanish with the vanishing of capital.”6 Marx and Engels despised the family structure. They considered the family bond to be merely a by- product of the free market economic system (which they called “Capitalist”). They described parents as oppressors of their children, who forced them to labor for their own benefit. Because they believed in these lies, Marx and Engels called for all authority being stripped away from every parent over his or her children, and for every child to be under the direct guardianship of the State. They believed young children could be conditioned to enjoy living under a Communist system if they were separated from the influence of their parents, who would otherwise train them to have opposing values and loyalties. Therefore, through State-controlled education and the abolition of private capital, Communists would Commie dictator Nicolae Ceausescu of Romania train their populations to become loyal to the (seen here at left in 1978 with commie-sympathizer Socialist ideology and State above all else. Ants. Jimmy Carter) was a vicious murdering scumbag In The Communist Manifesto, Marx and Engels stated, “You will say, we destroy the most hallowed of relations [parent-child relation], when we replace home education by social…The Communists have not invented the intervention of society in education; they do but seek to alter the character of that intervention, and to rescue children from the influence of the ruling class.”7 It is a myth that Communists were ever opposed to child factory labor. Marx and Engels believed that child education ought to be used in conjunction with industrial production. They still wanted children to labor, but were against children working to support their families. What they wanted was children to be trained to work in factories for the benefit of the State alone. In their words, what they wanted was “free education for all children in public schools. Abolition of children’s factory labour in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production.”8 They emphasized “education of all children from the moment they leave their mother’s care in national establishments at national costs. Education and production together…educates children on a Che Guevara was a murdering scumbag communal basis.”9 When the Communists assumed total control over China, they were quick to indoctrinate Chinese children with the Communist ideology through a State-controlled school system. The Communist Party of China proclaimed in 1958, “The policy of educational work of the Party is to make education serve proletarian politics, and to combine education and production labour. In order to carry out this policy, educational work must be led by the Party.”10 In 1959, China’s minister of education stated, “But we insist that all undertakings must be combined with political thought, because only in this way can we train the type of personnel who are both red [communist] and expert. For this reason, we hold up the soul of all school work the political education of Marxism/Leninism and the political task of the Party. Moreover, we have put into effect the guiding principle of ‘let politics be the commander-in-chief ’ in all fields of cultural and scientific education.”11 According the words and actions of those who founded Communism, and who established them in various countries, the primary thing that can be deduced about the principles of Communism is that it’s all about manipulation and control of the masses. They see no wrongdoing in Fidel Castro of Cuba is a scumbag killer who rose lying and distorting history as a means to obtaining and keeping power, to power through violence and they see no wrongdoing in destroying anyone who tells the truth. Communists ultimately want the power to mold others to think and behave they way they want them to, and an all-encompassing government is the tool they use to empower themselves to do it. The Communist system is inherently amoral: Karl Marx was born a Jew into a Jewish family, but when he was six years old his father made himself and the whole family be baptized into the Lutheran church. His father was a public official in Germany, in a time and place where members of Christian churches would rise in rank further than Jews. It can be deduced that this “conversion” by Marx’s father was likely done for opportunistic reasons, rather than a sincere religious change of heart. This would mean that the senior Marx had no true regard for the Christian faith, nor his Jewish religious heritage. Karl Marx later wrote, “The Christian state can behave towards the Jew in the only way characteristic of the Christian state—that is by granting privileges, by permitting the separation of the Jew from other subjects, but making him feel the pressure of all the other separate spheres of society, and feel it more intensely because he is in religious opposition to the dominant religion.”12 From the time he was young, Marx would develop a strong antagonism against Christianity and Judaism in particular, and all religion as a whole. Marx’s anger against Judeo- Christian beliefs was apparent in everything he wrote. Every Communist ideal is in direct opposition to the base values held by Christians and practicing Jews. It is certain that Marx’s Communist philosophy was developed directly out of his rebellion against all belief in God and the “Murdering scumbags of the world unite!” morality promoted by the religious teachings in the Bible. Marx wrote, “Communism begins from the outset of with atheism. Communism, as fully developed naturalism, equals Humanism.”13 Marx contended that religion was originally an invention of ancient human minds that has since passed its course. He wrote, “As soon as Jew and Christian recognize that their respective religions are no more than different stages in the development of the human mind, different snake skins cast off by history, and that man is the snake who sloughed them, the relation of Jew and Christian is no religious but is only a critical, “Show us your papers. You can’t travel where you scientific, and human relation.”14 please here in the ‘Socialist worker’s paradise.’” According to both Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, religion is an invention of the upper class invented to oppress the lower classes and to divert them away from the pains of oppression and poverty that have been wrought upon them by their rulers. They wrote, “Law, morality, religion, are to [communists/the “proletariat”] so many bourgeois prejudices, behind which lurk in ambush just as many bourgeois interests.”15 Marx claimed, “This state and this society produce religion.” He also claimed that “religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of the heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people.” 16 Friedrich Engels insisted that all codes of morality are shaped by economic factors, and moral laws are merely tools used by rulers to dominate and control the lower classes. He wrote, “In all societies in which this private property existed there must be this moral law in common: Thou shalt not steal. Does this law become an eternal moral law? By no means.… “In a society in which the motive for stealing has been done away with…the teacher of morals would be laughed at who tried to proclaim the eternal truth: Thou shalt not steal!”17 The cornerstone of all Communist belief is the rejection of all belief in God. Thereby, according to the Communist mind, no moral If Communism was good then it wouldn’t need to code could be considered an eternal statute. build up walls to prevent people from escaping it To the Communist there are no moral absolutes. There are no eternal concepts of “right” nor “wrong.” Good and evil don’t even really exist. Any act that allows one to reach desired his goal is fair game. Marx and Engels asserted that religion and morality were concepts invented by the wealthy to keep the poor oppressed. “We therefore,” wrote Engels, “reject every attempt to impose on us moral dogma whatsoever as eternal, ultimate and forever immutable moral law on the pretext that the moral world has its permanent principles which transcend history and the differences between nations.” Engels emphasized, “We maintain on the contrary that all former moral authorities are the product…of the economic stage which society had reached at that particular epoch…Morality was always a class morality.”18 Communism eliminates all religion and all notions of moral absolutes (except of course the absolutes that the State imposes). Marx and Engels wrote, “Communism abolishes eternal truths, it abolishes all religion, and all morality, instead of constituting them on a new basis; This guy was shot trying to it therefore acts in contradiction to all past historical experience.”19 escape the Soviet Union’s Socialist workers paradise Marx and Engels believed all wars and class struggle were caused by private ownership. According to their reasoning, if no one was allowed to own any property, there would be no reason for anyone to fight over it. Everyone would be regarded as equals because no one would have more property than any other. According to their reasoning, oppression by wealthy land owners would cease because there would no longer be any owners of private land. (NOTE: Extending the Communist ideology further, according to the reasoning of Marx and Engels, there would essentially be no need for any moral laws, because, they asserted, the foundational reason behind every crime is due to strife caused by the social structure caused by private ownership and money. Thereby, according to their reasoning, if marriage did not exist there would be no need for the moral law of adultery. If parents no longer had guardianship over their children, there would be no such moral laws pertaining to children. According to their reasoning, even the moral law forbidding murder wouldn’t be necessary, because, according to the reasoning of Marx and Engels, people kill for lack of money, but under a Communist system there would be no wealthy to envy and everyone would -theoretically- be equal and have their needs met.) They claimed every society in the history of man has been founded upon oppression by the owners of land against those who did not own land. Marx and Engels claimed, “Hitherto, every form of society has been based, as we have already seen, on the antagonism of oppressing and oppressed classes.”20 Pol Pot of Cambodia was The common rule is that whoever has ownership has power and say. a murdering scumbag Those who do not own have no power or say. The more someone owns, the more power and say they have and the less someone owns, the less power and say they will have. Marx and Engels understood this rule. This is why they simplistically concluded that if no one were allowed to own any private land then all would have equal say, because no one would have power over any other. Theoretically, according to Communist ideology, the abolition of all private ownership would eliminate all social classes, which would thereby eliminate all class struggle and class oppression, which is the reason why the abolition of all private property is one of the main staples of the Communist ideology. However, the fundamental flaw that stands out against the Communist theory is that there will ALWAYS be someone who owns! Whoever has control over what is done to the land is the one who has true ownership of it! Because people will always need to use that land to produce food and live on for their survival, someone will always need to have say over how that land is used. North and South Korea share the same peninsula, the same natural resources, the same language, and its people are even of the same race. Yet, South Korea prospers under a free market economic system while Communism has left North Korea economically decimated and bleak. Under a Communist system, the State has full control over all of the land. Since the State has all of the ownership of all of the land, whoever controls the government has all of the power and say. Since Communism is not a democracy (because people would otherwise vote for their own personal interests) the government will be under the control of the few people who run it. Those few persons will have all of the power and say because they control the State, which owns everything, and all of the people living under their authority will be completely subject to them in every manner. Under a Communist system, the general public will have no control, nor say, nor power. They will be subject to the will of those few who are in control of the government, because they will be completely dependent upon the State for their survival. And, because the Communist leaders are all atheists who reject all religious codes of morality, they will behave in ways that are completely amoral and guided only by self-will. It is universally common for atheists in any positions of power, especially those in supreme power, to use their paramount authority for mostly selfish, wicked purposes. Communist leaders become the ultimate oppressors with control over the ultimate oppressive, controlling state. After land ownership is done away with, and all of the wealthy are stripped of all their wealth, every citizen becomes a mere serf to their new land owners -the political leaders; and the State itself becomes their great oppressor. In the Bible, it is told that after the twelve tribes of Israel had entered into the promised land, each of the families of ancient Israel was allotted its own piece of private land, which the family fully owned, to do with as its members wished, and they could pass it down to their children for an inheritance. (Read in the Bible: Numbers 26:53-56) Some hungry North Korean children God wanted private ownership of land because He recognizes each of His people as unique individuals, each with his or her own particular purpose. God knows that if every person were forced to share the same collective land then there would always eventually be discontentment and strife among the people, because no matter what was done with the land there would always be many who would be opposed to it. Each individual has his own ideas about what to do with the land he lives on, and those individuals who are of the minority opinion will be discontented. They will eventually fight with the people they were made to share it with, because conflict will be seen by many as the only means by which they could ever be able to put their own ideas into practice. The more people that are made to share the same land, the more individual ideas will be suppressed, and the more likely it will be that strife and conflicts will arise. However, if individuals had their own portions, they would be more content because they would then have the freedom to put their own ideas into action. Even if they failed, they would be more content in their failures than they would if they had never been allowed the opportunity to do what they desired to do. Also, when people have private ownership of their own portion of society, they feel a stake in protecting the whole society, because only then would they have something to lose if it were all to be lost. If people do not have their own individual stake in that society, they would not feel compelled to support any part of it. For they would have nothing to lose if that society were to Starving children are common in North Korea collapse or be conquered. (NOTE: Contrary to what some so-called scholars ignorantly teach today, the early Christian church had never lived under a communal system. Although many chose to sell all they had for the sake of providing financial aid for their Christian brothers and sisters who were being persecuted at the time, this was never a mandate. Christians who gave their possessions did so out of their own hearts’ desire. Ananias and Sapphira were permitted to do whatever they wished with their own belongings, so they were not punished for holding back money from the church. It was their attempt to deceive so as to gain favor in the sight of the church that was their sin [Read in Acts 4:32-37; 5:1-10].) What Communists attempt to do is alter human thinking, by altering the conditions in which man lives. By eliminating religion and training everybody from birth to follow one single train of thought, Communists believe peace can be attained in the world because then there would be no separate ideologies for people to fight over. Communists also believe they can cause people to stop desiring their own property, and cause all selfish desires to end, by forbidding people from owning property and through re-education (this was a dangerous idea the Greek philosopher Plato also claimed). Marx and Engels did not contemplate that more strife and discontentment and poverty would be caused by Communism, because they refused to accept that the very nature of humans is to be self- serving. Humans cannot be trained to think and behave like ants, because their individuality and human desires will yearn to break free from it. Although humans can often cooperate and act collectively, they will not do so all the time. They will cooperate more effectively when their own private interests are benefitted by it, because personal Fidel Castro and his band of armed thugs reward is the primary incentive that motivates them. No matter how much the conditions of society are altered, or how hard people are trained to think and behave as communists wish them to, humans will never be stopped from developing their own thoughts and ideas. By nature, humans will always desire more than the Communist State could ever offer them. Therefore, there cannot be contentment living under Communism. The ruthlessness of Communism: Falsely claiming to be bringers of peace, Communist revolutionaries will always stir up discontentment among the masses, then clashes, then open revolution, and open war wherever they are allowed to flourish. Marx and Engels wrote, “The immediate aim of the Communists is the same of all the other proletarian parties: formation of the proletariat into a class, overthrow of the bourgeois supremacy, conquest of political power by the proletariat.”21 Communists strongly desire to establish a single world government, as demonstrated by the expansionist policies of the former Soviet Union, and currently China. According to Marx and Engels, they believe this would lead to an end of wars, because then there would no longer be any borders Fidel Castro’s mugshot or land to fight over. The Communist Manifesto states, “The Communists are further reproached with desiring to abolish countries and nationality.”22 (NOTE: A single world government would end war between nations, because there would be none, however, that does not necessarily make it a beneficial one for the people. The reality of a Communist State spread across the face of the whole earth would only lead to all freedoms squashed under it, yet with nowhere left free to escape it. Oppression would increase. Poverty would increase. And human misery would be greatly increased to previously unknown proportions. God had a very good reason for dividing the people at Babel into separate languages and nations. Persons who reject God only work to accomplish evil, and a united people who reject God would be united to accomplish greater evils. It is not good when wicked people are united. The world is presently filled with persons who reject God and desire only evil. They outnumber the good by a colossal margin, and for them to be united under a single banner would only lead to ruin. The only people God wants united are those who follow Him, because He knows when they are united they will Communism is a tyrannical ideology... accomplish great good [Genesis 11:6-9; Isaiah 48:22 ].) As Darwinists, Marx and Engels believed Communism was the next step in societal evolution. They believed humans would eventually evolve above the need for family, private property, and individualism. They believed this was inevitable because they believed the theory of evolution was undeniable, and that Communism was a superior form of government to every other invented by men. Thereby, they believed humanity would eventually evolve intellectually to embrace it. Engels wrote, “Along with the [classes] the state will reorganise production on the basis of free and equal association of the producers, will put the whole machinery of state where it will then belong: into the museum of antiquity, by the side of the spinning-wheel and bronze axe.”23 Under Communism, the concepts of human individuality and human freedom would become things of the past. Marx and Engels wrote, “And the abolition of this state of things is called by the bourgeois, abolition of individuality and freedom! And rightly so. The abolition of bourgeois individuality, bourgeois independence, and bourgeois freedom is undoubtably aimed at. By freedom is meant, under the present bourgeois conditions of production, free trade, free selling, and buying.”24 Marx and Engels did not endorse any single form of communist takeover in countries because they knew ...that has always attracted violent, every nation was structured differently. They said the hate-filled criminals to its ranks. means would have to “of course be different in different countries.”25 Although they believed Communism would inevitably conquer the world, they believed Communists must do what they could to push it along. In smaller, weaker nations, Marx and Engels endorsed violent revolution as an acceptable means of establishing Communist takeover. In more advanced countries, Marx and Engels explained that Progressive Socialism is the method that would ultimately lead to full Communism. Friedrich Engels wrote, “in all probability, the proletarian [communist] revolution will transform existing society gradually.”26 They wrote, “it is impossible, of course, to carry out all these measures at once. But one will always bring others in its wake. Once the first radical attack on private property has been launched, the proletarian will find itself forced to go even further, to concentrate increasingly in the Vladimir Lenin’s mugshot hands of the state all capital, all agriculture, all transport, all trade.”27 from his arrest in 1895 Socialism would progressively strip away control over private industry and property and money from the hands of individuals and assume them for the State. Some of the methods listed in The Communist Manifesto are “a heavy progressive or graduated income tax,” “abolition of all rights of inheritance,” “centralization of credit in the hands of the state,” and “centralization of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the state.”28 Through heavy propaganda, the public would be gradually trained to ideologically accept a Communist vision for the world. Vladimir Lenin, the dictator who brought Communism to Russia, wrote, “We will find our greatest success to the extent that we inculcate Marxism as a kind of religion: Religious men and women are easy to convert and win, and so will easily accept our thinking if we wrap [communism] up in a kind of religious terminology.”29 Marx and Engels wrote, “Nothing is easier than to give Christian asceticism a Socialist tinge. Has not Christianity declaimed against private property, against marriage, against the State? Has it not preached in the place of these, charity, poverty, celibacy and mortification of the flesh, monastic life and Mother Church? Christian Socialism is but the holy water with which the priest consecrates the heart-burnings of the aristocrat.”30 Tens of millions of people have been murdered under the tyranny of Communist leaders. The atheist regimes of Lenin and Stalin in the Soviet Union, Mao Zedong in China, Pol Pot in Cambodia, and Kim Il Jung in North Korea, along with many other Communist dictatorships in many other countries, were among the bloodiest in the history of the world. A criminal low-life makes himself into an idolized political low-life To Communists, this is inconsequential. They will force Communism upon the world even if the world does not want it, because they insanely believe it is good for the world. That is how blind they are to the evil of their own beliefs. Vladimir Lenin said, “What does it matter if three-quarters of the world perish, so long as the remaining one-quarter is Communist?”31 The Bible says about such violent-hearted men as this, “Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood: Their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths. The way of peace they know not; and there is no judgment in their goings: They have made them crooked paths: whosoever shall go therein shall not know peace” (Isaiah 59:7-8). “They are corrupt, and speak wickedly concerning oppression: they speak loftily. They set their mouth against the heavens” (Psalm 73:8-9). “In transgression and lying against the Lord, and departing away from our God, speaking oppression and revolt, “What does it matter if three- conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood.” (Isaiah quarters of the world perish?” 59:13; Proverbs 16:29-30; Colossians 2:8; 2 Peter 2:12-14) Communists are really rebelling against God: Marx and Engels saw the teaching of religion and morality as insidious propaganda, so they thought that, by indoctrinating Communism as a form of religion, they were merely replacing one form of propaganda with another one, which they believed to be better. In place of a spiritual God, the State would establish itself as “god” over the people, with Communism as the national religion. For Communists to gain control over the minds of people, all religious belief must first be destroyed. Yet, Communists realized that religion could not be eliminated outright, because the belief in God was too widespread. They sought to formulate a strategy to defame religion, and discredit its truthfulness, so the public would be trained to perceive religious beliefs, specifically those in the Bible, as ridiculous products of ignorance. Engels wrote, “One cannot dispose of [religion] before one succeeds in explaining its origin and its development from the While communists talk of peace historical conditions under which it arose and reached its and helping the masses there is dominating position. This applies to Christianity.”32 violence and hate in their hearts Engels expressed that an answer must be found to the question: “How could Christianity be explained in such a way so that the public will no longer believe in it?” Engels believed his associate (and fellow philosopher/socialist) Bruno Bauer had the answer to it, stating, “Bruno Bauer has contributed far more to the solution of this question than anybody else.”33 Engels explained that people must first be taught that the growth of Christianity was due solely to greedy and ambitious leaders, who used Christianity as a means for gaining more power for themselves and control over the people they led. leaders such as “the ambitious Constantine” who, in Engels’ words, “finally saw in the adoption of this religion of nonsense the best means of exalting himself to the position of autocrat of the Roman world.”34 Also, he explained that the accounts of events described in the Bible must be attacked from a scientific and historical standpoint, because, in Engels’ words, “if almost nothing from the whole content of the Gospels turns out to be historically provable—so that even the historical existence of Jesus Christ can be questioned, Bauer has, thereby, only cleared the ground for the solution of the question: what is the origin of the ideas and thoughts…in Christianity, and how they came to dominate the world?”35 ”Talk about God is nonsense,” said murdering scumbag Josef Stalin Advancing Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution has always been a goal of Communists. Through it, they hoped they could more easily convince people to reject all religion, and accept an atheistic philosophy on life. It did not matter to Marx and Engels that they had no viable evidence at the time to support it; what mattered most to them was that it provided an explanation for the formation of life that was alternative to the Bible. (NOTE: Charles Darwin did not even use archaeology as his grounds of evidence. Yet, his theory fit with what atheists wanted to believe [that God is a myth], so they felt compelled to wholeheartedly bolster the theory, even without the supporting evidence. In fact, the attempts of atheists to prove the evolution theory as true are what soon led to the “archaeological revolution” that began in the later half of the Nineteenth Century.) In 1876, despite having absolutely no scientific evidence whatsoever, Friedrich Engels attempted to write his own The Soviet Union did have the freedom of self-invented history of the evolution of man from ape speech, but they could only do it once, and titled, The Part Played by Labour in the transition from then they’d get sent to the Siberian gulag Ape to Man, but he left it incomplete. In it he wrote, “Many hundreds of thousands of years ago, during an epoch, not yet definitely determinable, of that period of earth’s history known to geologists as the Tertiary period, most likely toward the end of it, a particularly highly-developed race of anthropoid apes lived somewhere in the tropical zone—probably on a great continent that has now sunk to the bottom of the Indian Ocean. Darwin has given us an approximate description of these ancestors. They were completely covered with hair, they had beards and pointed ears, and they lived in bands in the trees.”36 In his 1884 book, The Origin of Family, Private Property, and the State, Engels wrote a more complete history, according to him, on the societal evolution of the human race. In it, he said that human evolution should be categorized as three stages. He called them Savagery, Barbarism, and Civilization. Engels said in the first stage (savagery) the earliest ape-men lived in trees and learned to use simple tools. Engels wrote, “Though this period may have lasted thousands of years, we have no direct evidence to prove its existence; but once the evolution of man Around the world, the so-called “peace” and “environmental” movements are organized by from the animal kingdom is admitted, such a Communist front groups to recruit youngsters transitional stage must be assumed.”37 In the second stage (barbarism), Engels said men learned to farm and domesticate and breed animals for food. According to Engels, “the Australian aborigines and many Polynesians are still in this stage of savagery today.”38 The third stage, Engels explained, is that of so-called “modern” men. What Engels really proved is that all atheists need answers in their lives to fill the vacancy of meaning and purpose that God should be filling. But, because they have rejected God, they will always search out philosophies that are in direct denial of God to try to fill it. As they close their minds away from God, the only ideas they will allow into their minds are those that reinforce the deceit that there is no God. Any ideas that allow for even the possibility of God’s existence are rejected outright by them, because to acknowledge the existence of God is to acknowledge their own sin. And, to acknowledge sin is to be confronted with the thing they absolutely refuse to do, -which is to repent from them. In essence, Marx and Engels rejected Biblical belief because they desired in their hearts things that God opposed. They rejected moral absolutes Communists don’t give a damn about peace, or the because they themselves wanted to do things that environment; what they want is to undermine the U.S. and all other democratic nations at every turn were not moral. They had no desire to repent from those sinful things, so they felt contempt against the God spoken of in the Bible. Then, they eagerly sought out the ideas of others who shared this very same contempt, and when they found them they readily clung to those unsubstantiated theories and/or hate-filled anti-Christian philosophies wherever they could dredge them up. They did this because they were seeking justifications for their sins, and the philosophies and theories of secular Humanists like Plato, Titus Lucretius Carus, Georg Hegel and Charles Fidel Castro snoozes out another four-hour rant about how all-knowing, and wonderful Darwin reinforced for them the idea that God is a mere he is for Cuba, while America is so awful myth invented by men. Atheism is a destructive belief. Without knowing God life becomes for them literally hopeless, reward-less, pointless, empty, and without lasting meaning. To the atheists, we live and we die, and then there is nothing. The atheistic life is a life ultimately lived in despair because there is nothing to look forward to for them. They inwardly know they will not live this life of flesh forever, and what remains for them after? Putting faith in government will not satisfy the soul! People don’t become atheists because they have followed any evidence that there is no God. The root of atheism is the desire to do evil. They become atheists as a means of justifying ungodly behaviors, because there is no greater justifier of evil than to rationalize that there is no God. They concluded that if there is no God, there is thereby no judge nor judgement against them for doing anything that is considered a sin. Therefore, with no God in existence, they could sin as they please because they will not be judged for it. In other words, atheists willingly and deliberately trained their own minds to believe there is no God and no moral absolutes, so they could fool themselves into believing there won’t be any eternal judgment against them for any bad thing they do, because if there is no God then any act they do which God calls “evil” can be justifiable. This is the delusion of all men who reject God. The Bible says, “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good…there is none that doeth good, no, not one.” (Psalm 14:14-3; 53:1-3) This statement is absolutely true. It is such a true statement the Bible even says it twice. There is no such thing as a “good” atheist. At best, there can be found atheists who aren’t openly evil in their actions, but in their hearts darkness will be found there. Whenever they do things that outwardly appear good there will not be found any good intentions behind them. Communists always promise the Once the way atheists think is thoughtfully examined, and it is world, but deliver death instead understood that their atheism is really a result of the desire in their hearts to do things they know are wrong, and their desire to justify those wrongful things, then the corruption of their hearts, minds, and behaviors is exposed. (NOTE: There are no current atheists who would acknowledge, nor are they even capable of, recognizing the deep-rooted psychosis that formulated their atheistic mind-set, yet every former atheist who now believes in the one true God of the Bible, and who has examined their own past way of thinking, will admit that, yes, their atheism was indeed rooted in their desire to rationalize sin.) Atheists will search, explore and experiment with every activity imaginable in a vain attempt to fill the void of meaning in their lives that cannot be satisfied by money, sex, power, false science, philosophy, astrology, material goods, human government, games, or physical pleasure. That void can only be satisfactorily filled by accepting the truth about the one true God into one’s heart, because it is the love for God that’s intended to fill that void. Marx and Engels bafflingly wrote, “The charges against Communism made from a religious, a philosophical, and generally, Communist dictators all seek to from an ideological standpoint are not deserving of serious be worshiped as if they are gods examination.”39 Yet, every idea that Marx and Engels espoused was done with religion, philosophy and ideology fully in mind. Communism is the culmination of anti-religious, atheistic philosophy, molded into a political ideology so it could be forced into effect onto the public through government. Karl Marx wrote, “The philosophers have only interpreted the world; the point, however, is to change it.” 40 Communism is really no more than an organized rebellion against God. It is an attempt by atheists to replace God with the Humanist State. To the atheists, there is no God to govern us, thereby they will attempt to make human government the supreme authority on earth. Since there is no God for them to put their faith in, they will thereby put their faith in human government. To the atheists, human government is in every way their “god” because they will look to the State to care for humanity, and solve all of its problems. This is why the leaders of Castro welcomes Hugo Chavez of Communist nations are literally worshiped and seen almost as Venezuela, the Marxist totalitarian “gods” in human form, as statues and paintings of them are scumbag for the “new generation” erected everywhere in the nations they lead. Yet, all those “gods” are false, because in reality they’re cruel, selfish, and have no love whatsoever for the people they have power over. The false prophets of Communism always promise people peace, full employment, plenty of food, and equality for all. But, after over a century of witnessing what Communism has actually brought to the countries that embraced it we see; all of them are oppressive dictatorships; all of them are impoverished; and only the most masochistic of people enjoy living under that type of system. The only promise Communists seem able to keep is that everybody gets an equal share when it comes to the distribution of suffering. While Communists around the world love to depict an idolized image of the evil murderer Che Guevara (left), his true face was shown in the end (right) as his many years of violent revolution eventually begat violence upon him Christ said, “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. ...Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.” (Matthew 7:14-20) Communism has delivered nothing but pain and conflict to the world, so how could it possibly be any good? The Bible says, “The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts. His ways are always grievous.” (Psalm 10:4-7) On March 17, 1883, Friedrich Engels gave a speech at Karl Marx’s funeral by his grave. In his speech he said, “Just as Darwin discovered the law of development of organic nature, so Marx discovered the law of development of human nature…Science was for Marx a historically dynamic revolutionary force. For Marx was before all else a revolutionist. His real mission in life was to contribute, in one way or another, to the overthrow of Capitalist society and the state institutions which it had brought into being. His name will endure through the ages, and so will his work.”41 Unfortunately, Karl Marx’s name and work has endured to now, to the detriment of this entire world. All it often takes is one single person’s antagonism against God, and his great ambition to do evil, to bring a lot of harm to a lot of people. The Bible says, “Wisdom is better than weapons of war: but one sinner destroyeth much good” (Ecclesiastes 9:18). Josef Stalin poses for the police in 1910 QUOTES : “A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take from you everything you have.” Gerald R. Ford President of the United States from 1974 to 1976 “Ultimately, property rights and personal rights are the same thing. The one cannot be preserved if the other is violated. Each man is entitled to his rights and the rewards of his service, be they never so large or never so small.” Calvin Coolidge President of the United States from 1925 to 1928 “Communist regimes were not some unfortunate aberration, some historical deviation from a socialist ideal. They were the ultimate expression, unconstrained by democratic and electorate pressures, of what socialism is all about. ..in short, the state (is) everything and the individual is nothing.” Margaret Thatcher Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1979 to 1990 “Let us pray for the salvation of all those who live in that totalitarian darkness. Pray that they will discover the joy of knowing God. But until they do, let us be aware that while they preach the supremacy of the State, declare its omnipotence over individual man, that predict its eventual domination of all people on earth; -They are the focus of evil in the modern world.” “...I believe that communism is another sad, bizarre chapter in human history whose last pages even now are being written. I believe this because the source of our strength in the quest for human freedom is not material, but spiritual.” Ronald Reagan President of the United States from 1981 to 1989 (From speech at Orlando, Florida on March 8, 1983) “The totalitarian world produces backwardness because it does such violence to the spirit. Thwarting the human impulse to create, to enjoy, to worship. The totalitarian world finds even symbols of love and worship an affront.” Ronald Reagan President of the United States from 1981 to 1989 (From speech at Berlin, West Germany on June 12, 1987) (1)Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels.
