To truly understand Communism and what it REALLY is, can be tricky, we must know and understand European and early history from the Americas (North and Latin/South) history and have a slight grasp on Religion also, this is a blog I expect a few likes and not one reply, I am testing my mind and the ability to write about things that challenge popular beliefs by people all over the World. I have a family member very high up in the UK Communist Party, we must understand the Communism we all see and know (Think we know) is extremist Communism. Communism at its truest form is equality. The main reason why communism was made was peopl0e wanted to be equal without getting restricted by their environment, but nowadays communism is abused by some dictators such as North Korean leaders. Besides, capitalism also has its own problem. There are so many people who didn’t have opportunities to try what they really wanted to do due to their poverty or else. If communism was working as it should be, would it be better than capitalism? Capitalism is an economic system in which trade, industry, and the means of production are controlled by private owners with the goal of making profits in a market economy. Central characteristics of capitalism include capital accumulation, competitive markets and wage labor. In a capitalist economy, the parties to a transaction typically determine the prices at which assets, goods, and services are exchanged. Sadly this can lead to Fascism!
Fascism is a form of radical authoritarian nationalism that came to prominence in early 20th-century Europe. Influenced by national syndicalism, fascism originated in Italy during World War I, combining more typically right-wing positions with elements of left-wing politics, in opposition to liberalism, Marxism, and traditional conservatism. Although fascism is usually placed on the far right on the traditional left–right spectrum, several self-described fascists as well as some commentators have said that the description is inadequate. Fascist ideology consistently invokes the primacy of the state. Leaders such as Benito Mussolini in Italy and Adolf Hitler in Germany embodied the state and claimed indisputable power. Fascism borrowed theories and terminology from socialism but replaced socialism’s focus on class conflict with a focus on conflict between nations and races.Fascists advocate a mixed economy, with the principal goal of achieving autarky (Autarky is the quality of being self-sufficient. Usually the term is applied to political states or their economic systems. Autarky exists whenever an entity can survive or continue its activities without external assistance or international trade) to secure national self-sufficiency and independence through protectionist and interventionist economic policies.
Fascists sought to unify their nation through an authoritarian state that promoted the mass mobilization of the national community and were characterized by having leadership that initiated a revolutionary political movement aiming to reorganize the nation along principles according to fascist ideology. Fascist movements shared certain common features, including the veneration of the state, a devotion to a strong leader, and an emphasis on ultranationalism and militarism. Fascism views political violence, war, and imperialism as a means to achieve national rejuvenation,and it asserts that stronger nations have the right to expand their territory by displacing weaker nations.
Communism is a socioeconomic system structured upon common ownership of the means of production and characterised by the absence of classes, money, and the state; as well as a social, political and economic ideology and movement that aims to establish this social order. The movement to develop communism, in its Marxist–Leninist interpretations, significantly influenced the history of the 20th century, which saw intense rivalry between the Communist states in the Eastern bloc and the most developed capitalist states of the Western world. Communism was first developed into a scientific theory by German philosopher and social scientist Karl Marx (Marxism) Marxism is a worldview and method of societal analysis that focuses on class relations and societal conflict, that uses a materialist interpretation of historical development, and a dialectical view of social transformation. Marxist methodology uses economic and sociopolitical inquiry and applies that to the analysis and critique of the development of capitalism and the role of class struggle in systemic economic change.
Religious views on capitalism have been philosophically diverse, with numerous religious philosophers defending the natural right to property, while simultaneously expressing criticism at the negative social effects of materialism and greed. I know this is difficult to follow, but stay with me! The first socialists drew many of their principles from Christian values, against the bourgeois values (Bourgeoisie, French pronunciation is a word from the French language, used in the fields of political economy, political philosophy, sociology, and history, which originally denoted the wealthy stratum of the middle class that originated during the latter part of the Middle Ages (AD 500–1500). The utilization and specific application of the word is from the realm of the social sciences. In sociology and in political science, the noun bourgeoisie and the adjective bourgeois are terms that describe a historical range of socio-economic classes. As such, in the Western world, since the late 18th century, the bourgeoisie describes a social class “characterized by their ownership of capital, and their related culture”; hence, the personal terms bourgeois (masculine) and bourgeoise (feminine) culturally identify the man or woman who is a member of the wealthiest social class of a given society, and their materialistic worldview) of profiteering, greed, selfishness and hoarding. Liberation theology is a school of theology within Christianity, particularly in the Roman Catholic Church. It emphasizes the Christian mission to bring justice to the poor and oppressed, particularly through political activism. Its theologians consider sin the root source of poverty, the sin in question being exploitative capitalism and class war by the rich against the poor. In the U.S., in response to increased ideas of capitalist ideas and Social Darwinism, the Social Gospel was pursued, calling on protections of people against perceived threats from industrialization.
america-freedom-to-fascism-a-film-by-aaron-russoSo, after reading all this we can draw many conclusions about today’s World, where we are, and how we came to be here. History was taught to me since age 5 and I was no master of History at school I am self taught as many are. As I write and get my mind more and more into the World and how it works and lies to us through the means above, we can then speculate with an educated guess as to where we are heading as a species.
I look at America as being almost Communistic and 100% Fascist. What America has become today is the embodiment of all the above. It can be said for every action there is a reaction and this is true more so in so called 1st World countries such as the USA. America is a country of people full of pride and this is good, but when I often say America is very small 3.5% of our global population, many Americans question me on this and I get such comments as “That can’t be true” It is as many know who know how to use an internet search engine. America has become a scared war nation. The Government are ruled by commerce and the people are rules by powerful men and woman, CEO’s that dictate how political and religious values are perceived by a willing people who have been duped and have been educated to the same level as many 2nd and 3rd World countries. America sits at 38th cleverest nation on Earth and sometimes when I do blogs about the USA I am doing so as a worried friend. I am slowly starting to understand you America, your government failed you BADLY in School over the last 20 years and the next generation coming through I really feel sorry for. American kids were not passing exams, so American politicians made the tests easier to make a graph or chart look good and fool you all. The USA media is well trained in the art of fear and fascism, JFK warned you America, this man seen fascism entering your world and your banks and government buildings, yet as a people, America, you must wake up and stop using the “I can’t help” line
Many men have tried hard to warn you America, some in speeches, some in song. You didn’t listen and now you are on the verge of a life where you will be a number. I come from a society and way of life where we own our Government (Scotland, not Britain, we have our own laws here) I struggled to understand you America so I researched, what I came to see was a people who can’t admit they are wrong, want to blame another politician and won’t say “I was wrong to vote for this person” With Obama you have, America, taken your way of life backwards and allowed a small % of 200 people to have more money than every man, woman and child in your country. What JFK said above was true. I will leave you with more warning America through video and images. Again, I don’t expect much come back debate here.
