The idea of Socialism is awesome. Everyone has everything they need, no one is hungry or homeless. The problem is it has been tried repeatedly throughout human history and has failed miserably, every single time. Look at today’s Occupy Wall Street (OWS) movement compared to the Bolshevik Revolution.
It began as “peaceful protests” on the 17th day of September. The protest began at a specific city which was the financial heart of the pre-eminent global capitalist “Republic” a world-power center of wealth and influence unequaled in the entire world at that specific time. The nation had been in a Great Recession for three years. Factories were closing their doors, and unemployment was high. The national debt to the world central bank was crippling. The future of this once great nation was bleak in every way. The message of the “protesters” was a simple one – the “working people” were the unwitting slaves of big business and corporate greed – a mere 1% (the “ruling class) were robbing the “people” (the remaining 99%) of their wealth and property. It was not just a single day of protests, but was scheduled to last for many months. Eventually, the “movement” spread to every other major city in the country – as well as other foreign nations.
I am describing the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917 not Occupy Wall Street. Millions of Russian people eventually died following these “Red October” protests and the resultant class-warfare. The entire family line of Czar Nicholas was summarily executed in cold blooded genocide. Millions more of the “upper class” were either executed or imprisoned for life in Siberian gulags by the “Red Army” led by Vladimir Lenin and Leon Trosky. The “Soviet Union” was born. The brutal police state and massive death toll of Vladimir Lenin and Leon Trotsky was a far cry from the vision of socio-economic equality and the “peace, bread and land” the Bolshevik revolutionaries had envisioned and laid the groundwork to make a reality.
The National Socialist Party of Germany aimed to bring in a socialist utopia. Initially Nazi political strategy focused on anti big business, anti burgeois and anti-Capitalist rhetoric, many people today do not even know that NAZI was Socialism and along with 6 million Jews another 7 million Christians, Gypsies and Gays were murdered.
Someone is bank rolling these protests. Is it possible that the sons, grandsons and daughters of the same, global “financiers” using the exact same mindset are attempting to do the same thing in America, 2011, as was accomplished in Russia in 1917? Did those same bankers finance Hitler and Stalin? We hear that these protests were “a spontaneous grass roots uprising”. Really? Then how was the funding set up and the date determined a year in advance? Who is funding the OWS movement? It appears they received $185,000 to start with from Adbusters, who appear to have received it from the Tides Center. In order to maintain “non-profit” (non tax) basis, the IRS requires tax-exempt foundations such as “Tides” to publish “disclosures”. Here we see that millions of dollars have been donated to “Tides” from something called the “Open Society” – which we then find to be a wholly owned foundation of Mr. George Soros, the “evil emperor” himself. Keep in mind who George Soros is. He’s the front man for the House of Rothschild, who by his own admission sent innocent Hungarian Sephardi Jews to the Nazi gas chambers. He is also one of the world’s richest men who made his billions via global market manipulation and insider trading! He is the very epitome of everything that O.W.S. says they hate.
Understand that those at the top would prefer a socialist system to shore up their power and wealth. Are the OWS protestors simply the “useful idiots” Lenin spoke of, like the Bolsheviks? Once the bankers have, using the force of government, destroyed the Free Market Capitalist system or what is left of it and collapsed world economies will they put the totalitarian police state in place, as they have every single time previously? The Federal Reserve Bank and the International Monetary Fund and the other private government controlling banks have robbed the people with the bailouts and corporate welfare and those misguided souls that are protesting for MORE GOVERNMENT do not see the big picture. The big picture is that without government backing these corrupt multinational banks could not do what they are. It it the corrupt big governments that are truly at fault.
We created this government to secure our rights, we have allowed it to become an overbearing monster from whom we must get permission to catch a fish. Our Constitution was written to limit the power of government to protect the rights of the people. Freedom and limited government created the highest standard of living the world has ever seen. As it has done every time it has been put into place. Now government workers are part of the 1% controlling the rest of us. If we do not rise up and return this nation to its Constitutionally limited government, it will continue to decline into the totalitarian police state and evil empire it is becoming. Look around the poverty we are experiencing with SWAT forces used on people with unpaid student debt, drinking raw milk, using oxygen therapy to cure cancer is all part and parcel of socialism’s reality. Where government is in control instead of the people.
