Socialism, also known as cultural Marxism or early stage communism, is the chivalrous belief that the rich ought to hand over their money and property over to the poor without conditions. This is simply taking money and property from those who have it and giving it away to those who don’t. It sounds generous. It sounds kind. It sounds like something Jesus would do. However, it’s a crime and it doesn’t solve any of life’s problems. Yes, you heard it here first, socialism is theft sexed up to appear respectable.
What is Socialism?
If you ask a university student they’ll bamboozle you pseudo-economic babble about some utopian society where no one is free to spend their money how they would like to, but somehow everyone is happy about this. If you ask me, I’ll tell you it’s what happens when a professional thief decides to write a manifesto explaining why she ought not to be imprisoned or flogged.
Socialism is the impulsive and irresponsible sharing of other people’s resources without consent. Giving someone money they haven’t earned is encouraging them to behave irresponsibly and childishly. People who earn their things look after and protect them. Compare the quality of the gardens around houses people own versus the gardens around houses provided by the housing commission or the houses inhabited by tenants. People don’t respect things they are given or borrow, people respect the things they earn or own.
It is no surprise that Eastern Europe looked like one vast housing commission suburb during the cold war? That’s what nations of people with no pride looks like.
In the USSR all food was confiscated by the state and rationed out to the people. If the people didn’t work, they weren’t fed. 7 million people were starved to death in the Ukraine alone for defying the state.
I’m a firm believer that everyone should have the opportunity to prove their worth and have an opportunity to own their own home. But affirmative action programs and limitless government hand-outs don’t let people have this opportunity. By denying people the opportunity to work toward owning their own property, and their own responsibilities, socialists deny people their basic human dignity, instead they breed a class of people without pride or dignity. Sure, some people will not be able to handle being independent. But it’s the same situation when trying to rescue a person who can’t swim, if you jump in too soon to rescue them, they’ll just drag you down with them. I believe these people can still be rehabilitated, but I’m not going to treat them like honoured guests in my country and let them breed like rabbits until the state is bankrupt from spoon feeding them throughout their sorry lives. If you want to help someone, teach them to help themselves, don’t just sit there handing them fish everytime they ask and patting yourself on the back each time for being so understanding and generous.
A System Tested and Found Wanting
A lot of leftist apologists (cultural Marxists) will tell you that socialism has never been properly tried, or something similar like communism or feminism (socialism with women as an oppressed class) has never been really tried. If they tell you that then they’ve either just lied or they don’t know what they’re talking about. The Soviet Union was an excellent example of socialism, a casebook study. The thing that a lot of people seem to forget is that the Soviet Union had a president called Mikhail Gorbachov who publicly stated that socialism had been tried and had failed. He then started to introduce a new series of reforms to reduce socialism and introduce capitalism. This is a fact of history. However, thanks their airy-fairy intellectual allies in our universities, they’ve got an endless stream of useful idiots pouring out of our universities like sausages and spouting denials and apologies for the atrocities of communism.
I’m very wary of people with too much education and not enough common sense, the airy-fairy hippies that inhabit universities and academia often see people and/or groups of people as linguistic constructs and human nature as something as pliable as play doh. Hard working scientists and engineers earned the respect that these intellectual frauds are benefiting from by association, and it’s high time we called ‘bullshit’ on these intellectual frauds. Socialists aren’t biologists, they don’t understand how nature works, nature isn’t kind, she’s cruel, sadistic, merciless and relentless. All the kindness in the world comes from human beings, but all the stupidity comes from those who deny empiricism’s effectiveness. Socialists refuse to acknowledge that while we’re out of the jungle, we still have the jungle inside of us, imprinted on our genes, and short of a radical genetic re-engineering of our species, that isn’t going to change no matter how much they shame or brutalise decent hard working folk. Socialists are the same sophist reality deniers the human species has been struggling to deal with since the beginning of civilisation. New name, same shit.
Why did the Soviet Union decide they had to ditch socialism and move back towards capitalism? To understand this we need to understand motivation and incentives. People who lack motivation are lazy, slow, weak and depressed. You probably know about depression, it’s a big problem in our society, you can thank socialism for that, but I’ll explain better that later.
Imagine that you got paid the same amount for your job regardless of whether you turned up late, took too long on your lunch break or even couldn’t be bothered coming into work. Oh and no one can fire you from your job under circumstances such as poor performance. Would you put 100% into your job? Of course you wouldn’t, and that’s what happened in the Eastern Bloc. Shops might not open until midday, so there would be this huge queue outside, then the people working in them wouldn’t care about giving quality service to anyone and eventually couldn’t be bothered and close the shop early leaving most of the people without the items they spent the day lining up for. This was typical under communism, because there were no incentives to work hard. Anyone who has worked in any large organisation knows how hard to it is these days to sack lazy, useless and disruptive employees, that’s socialism creeping into our culture. We need to protect the weak, stupid and disruptive at the cost of every hard-working, intelligent and honest person. Do you feel motivated by this system? I think most of you already understand a little of what it was like growing up in Soviet Russia.
“But surely not!” you’re thinking, “how can that be, the USSR was a seriously powerful and industrialised nation!” You’re quite correct, the USSR did industrialise and become a significant world power under the socialist system, and it was achieved by Lenin, Trotsky and Stalin all using the ingenious method of shooting or starving anyone who didn’t work hard to death. Under Joseph Stalin 20-50 million soviet citizens were shot or starved to death by the state while being worked up to 20 hours per day in forced labour camps. This is how the socialists incentivised people to work harder and it ‘succeeded’. However, they were killing people faster than they could breed them, so this policy had to end. Not surprisingly, as soon as they stopped killing people the USSR’s rapid industrialisation started to slow down and by the 1970s it had ground to a halt. Between the 1970s and the end of the cold war the soviet economy had completely stagnated, in 1989 the soviet union was still using 1960s built factories and equipment because they couldn’t motivate their people to upgrade anything. They were faced with two options: start shooting people again or re-introduce capitalism. This practice of forced labour wasn’t limited to the USSR: Mao worked 30 million to death, Ho Chi Min executed almost a million vietnamese ‘kulaks’ who didn’t fall in line and Pol Pot killed 2 million people in forced labour and re-education camps. Do I need to bother mentioning the communist regimes in Africa?
The Cultural Marxists Are No Different
Ultimately, socialism will always lead to this situation, the cultural Marxists don’t tell you this, but it’s inevitable because they can’t change human nature. People need incentives, rewards and ownership of their labour to feel pride and dignity. Every application of socialism from the USSR to hippy communes has eventually failed. In every situation it collapsed as soon as the people pushing it lost the will to keep coercing people into it. Socialism; the political ideology of self-hatred through shaming and blaming their own people for not making the system work; they’ll start by telling you that you’re too racist, too elitist, too greedy, too selfish etc… and when they still can’t convince you to hand over all of your money to help the undeserving, they’ll start arresting you, enslaving you and ultimately shooting you for “treason,” however absurd that is because they’re the ones who sold you and your country out to people who didn’t earn it.
To understand why cultural Marxists, socialists and communist eventualy resort to such violent methods of coersion one needs to understand how human motivation works. If someone asked you to put your hand into water so cold that it hurts would you do it? I most certainly hope you would say no. If however, they offered you an incentive, any incentive, such as money, some of their labour or to borrow something of theirs then yes, you might put your hand into that water.
The concept explained here is critically important to your ability to experience a happy and satisfying life. Ask yourself these questions:
A. What kind of person puts their hands in freezing water for no incentive?
B. What kind of person doesn’t put their hands in freezing water for no incentive?
C. What kind of person puts their hands in freezing water for an incentive?
D. What kind of person doesn’t put their hands in freezing water for an incentive?
These are four possible options that exist in this scenario.
Here are my answers:
A. A person with no self-respect, a weak willed pathetic person who is little more than a slave
B. A person with self-respect who is responsible and can hold their own against at least some opposition.
C. A needy person, but one with self-respect. They believe their life has value.
D. A content person, who has self-respect.
If you could choose, which of those four people would you be? In a capitalist society, being person A is going to be a huge disadvantage, you will never progress up the social ladder, you will never have satisfying relationships and you will never be content. But any of the other options could be helpful for you to either survive comfortably or find happiness. However, socialist societies have to eliminate all incentives to be more than mediocre. Socialism is about helping the weak become mediocre, but it’s also about making sure the strong fail to shine else it will create inequalities that could disrupt the whole system, thus enforced equality is fundamentally anti-nature. However, socialism still needs people to do things without incentives.
How does socialism get people to do things without the incentives of money and social prestige?
Hollocaust victims? Wrong! These lucky people were fortunate enough to live under a socialist government. The communists made the fascists look like genocidal amatuers.
Like I said earlier, it shames and beats them until they’re like person (A) because only person (A) will fit into a socialist society. The others will get frustrated, angry and demand to be to free to live their lives as they want to.
Socialism promotes depression by removing the incentive for the rewards that motivate people. By guilting people for desiring comfortable houses, high social status, big pay cheques, fast cars, interesting exciting sexual partners or simply preventing people from getting easy access to these things by banning them, socialism essentially takes all the fun out of life. In education, competition is exciting to boys, but it’s not good for socialism because it promotes talented students to excel instead of wallowing in socialist mediocrity. So competition is stifled and boys tune out, develop depression, fail to fit into a meaningful job (to them) and position in society and atrophy in depression until they either commit suicide or drop dead from self-neglect.
Don’t be sucked in by the slogans and the obsession with blaming the Nazis for everything: cultural Marxists don’t want you to know about the history of socialism and communism. They’re experts at rewriting history and spreading propaganda. If challenged they’ll play the victim and call you the oppressor, but the tyrant always hides in sheep’s clothing: crying helpless, misunderstood and neglected but unwilling to help themselves or take responsibility for their own mistakes. Socialist politicians and academics have a hundred and one excuses for why communism has killed so many people, but they’ll never acknowledge that they share so much in common philosophically with communists. Feeling depressed? Frustrated? Lustless? Like you can’t get any satisfaction? Need a self-help book? No. You just need to reclaim the self-respect our cultural Marxist politicians have been beating out of you and say, “fuck you!” I’m going to become as self-sufficient as possible, I refuse to accept state intrusion into my personal and family life, and I’m not paying for slackers to live the good life at my expense. The poor are not celebrities and they shouldn’t be treated as such. Give them jobs so they can earn their keep, don’t give them hand outs.
