Socialism Its Adherents and the Enduring Lies

Article:


Paraphrasing Mark Twain, there are lies, damned lies, and socialism.

The leader of the White opposition, the distinguished admiral Alexander Kolchak, was defeated on the battlefield, betrayed by the Allies and captured by the Bolsheviks.

During the interrogation, the Bolsheviks, astounded by their own victory, were trying to understand how they could defeat the well-supplied regular army, led by experienced military commanders.

"Admiral, why didn't you promise land to peasants? You could have won this war," the interrogators asked (Russia was an agrarian country and the ownership of land was one of the most compelling issues of the revolution). "I would not promise what I could not deliver" was the admiral's response.

The interrogators just smiled. They did promise the land and won.

Bolsheviks who had a propensity for fancy names called it "monopoly on the revolutionary truth." In other words, the truth in the "decaying" world of capitalism does not mean what it does in the world of "triumphant" socialism. In practical terms, when Bolsheviks promised democracy, freedom, liberty, and inexorable "land to the peasants," "bread to the hungry," "peace to the people," those zealous Bolshevik slogans sounded great but the Russian people found soon enough that "land to the peasants" meant forced collectivization; "bread to the hungry" man-made famine; and "peace to the people" -- civil war.

A hundred years later the Russian socialist school of power politics (Bolsheviks were socialists and belonged to the Russian Social Democratic Labor Party) remains central to socialists' vie for power. While successfully separating themselves from a grisly gang of Bolshevik terrorists, the progeny have preserved their doctrinal commitment, and methods of operation including the most effective of them demagoguery and lies. In this context, the Orwellian observation that "The worst advertisement for socialism is its adherents" is the true embodiment of socialism.

A Democratic Socialist Hugo Chavez called socialism "a sea of happiness." As in the case with Bolsheviks' "land to the peasants" etc., "a sea of happiness" resulted in a sea of human suffering and despair. Nevertheless, Chavez's numerous Hollywood supporters remain unrepentant. Just as their precursors in the totalitarian movements -- the philosophers of the French Revolution and the intelligentsia of the Russian Revolution -- the U.S. cultural and intellectual elite has equated the evolution of history with egalitarianism and is holding aloft a banner of socialism.

There is also a wicked harvest of the House representatives who arrived after the 2018 midterm elections. Those untutored graduates of American universities are uninformed and poorly read, and some have earned notoriety for inconceivable stupidity. Being aware of self-worthlessness they can hardly contain their awe and envy at the American enterprise and question its moral validity.

The (near) tragedy of groups like antifa and OWS (especially white guys with dreadlocks = tent rapists) is that they are the thugs, foot soldiers, and resurrected Hitler Youth.
