Generalissimo Obama is the prototypical slacker. He hung out, smoked dope, and did little or nothing in college, or so we are led to believe, as he won’t release his transcripts and no one remembers him. He managed to do little or nothing as a united States Senator, voting present more than “yea” or “nay” on legislation. As president, B. Hussein Obama has managed to get a dog, go on a “date” with his wife, and destroy the fabric of America (that not taking much, as Congress did the work and he just had to sign some papers) in between basketball games and trashing Israel. Generalissimo Obama is in slacker heaven with his Marxist regime.
Marxism is based upon slacker ideals that have been embraced by and taught in the public school system for two generations:
Exploitation: The idea that the worker is exploited if he/she uses more labor than necessary to produce goods society uses. This is the union concept of doing the minimum, not achieving anything but becoming a drone.
Alienation: The concept that the worker becomes detached from his/her “humanity” by generating profits for the owner of the business, the one taking all of the risk and responsibility. Right.
Historical Materialism: References the collective ways humans make money. I do not make a collective income. I earn for myself.
As you can see by the items above, there are a few serious flaws in the slacker ideal of Marxism/Socialism/Communism, not the least of which is the fact that diminished production equates with diminished income, which fuels alienation. Marxism is a Catch-22 of self-fulfilling prophecy. Today’s Marxists do not let the facts get in their way. Never mind that Marxism/Socialism/Communism has failed in every society, including the ones that massively reduced their population through genocide and reduced social services (food, health care, etc.); the Marxists in the White House and Congress insist on pushing forward.
On that note, I will push forward with the examination of the evil known as Marxism/Socialism/Communism through the distinct stages identified by Karl Marx:
Primitive Communism: Cooperative tribal societies. Tribal societies have a long history of being less than cooperative, but let’s not let facts cloud a good theory, Karl.
Slave Society: According to Marx, a development of tribal progression. Right. Go from a cooperative to enslavement with no transition.
Feudalism: Good ole Karl, we go from a slave state to an aristocracy with business owners becoming evil capitalists, because, hey, slavery was much more fun.
Capitalism: The evil capitalists call the shots and employ the proletariats. Marx says this is like slavery, except slaves didn’t get paid and were property of the slave owner…just like slavery, but different.
Socialism: Workers gain class consciousness. Revolution replaces capitalist leaders with a dictatorship of the working class where socialization of production can be achieved. Historically this is where everything goes haywire. No one in power wants to give it up to the workers. The elites always find a way to retain power over the little people, because, being elite, they know best – just ask them. Do you really think Obama will let Andy Stern or the SEIU thugs to have the power? Please.
Communism: The classless and stateless society. This is also referred to as the “clueless society” as it has never been achieved. Once in power, no one wants to surrender said power. If they did, there would be a power vacuum that would lead to anarchy until someone climbed to the top. This is the fictional unicorn of Marxism/Socialism/Communism. It doesn’t exist, it hasn’t existed, and, because people love money and power, it will never exist.
Marx is dead. Marxism, on the other hand, keeps coming back, like cancer, under a government-controlled health care plan. It is the carrot on the stick the elite uses to beat the people on the head with. It is called many different things, including progressivism. If America chooses this path, the people are choosing to abandon the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and freedom. There is a difference between a Marxist and an Anti-Marxist; both have read the Communist Manifesto but only the Anti-Marxist understood it.
The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.
