Marxism May Be Dead, But Fascism is Alive and Well

Marxism is dead and has been since the Berlin Wall came crashing down. In today’s world, there are leaders who view themselves as Marxist-Leninists (like Hugo Chavez) or even communist (Yes, there is still a communist Party in China.). In Latin America, we are not seeing a revival of Marxism, but a rebirth of fascism with Hugo Chavez playing the role of Benito Mussolini, complete with braggadocio.

 

Fidel Castro is the original Marxist-Leninist in the hemisphere, but the reality is that no one really believes in Marxism. Nor is there any international communist movement for communism died with the demise of the Soviet Empire. Castro, like many of his Marxist buddies, has morphed into a fascist dictator, a cult of personality. North Korea, Cuba, and Venezuela are led by personality cults, Cubans by the Castros, Venezuela by Chavez, and North Korea have been ruled by the Kim dynasty for the past six decades.

 

A friend of mine once observed, after the fall of the Soviet Empire, that he simply observed we were witnessing the replacement of communism with various forms of National Socialism, a Russian version or a Chinese version. Most people equate fascism with Hitler and his Nazis regime or Mussolini but fascism existed before Hitler took power. In 1946, George Orwell observed, “The word fascism has now no meaning except so far as it signifies something not desirable.” A scholar, Stanley Payne, added, “Fascism remains probably the vaguest of the major political terms.” What must be understood is that fascism is not, nor ever was, a “Right wing.” National Review’s Jonah Goldberg stated, “From the beginning, fascism was dubbed as right-wing not because it necessarily was right wing but because the communist left thought this was the best way to punish apostasy.” Goldberg went to note that Nazism and Fascism was right-wing socialism, and further stated, “What I am mainly trying to do is to dismantle the granite like assumption in our political culture that American conservatism is an offshoot or cousin of fascism…Many of the ideas and impulses that inform what we call liberalism come to us through an intellectual tradition that led directly to fascism.”

 

When thinking about fascism, we need to understand fascism. While not as easy to define as communism or Nazism, fascism does have a distinguishing feature; the state controls all. If any private companies exist as it does in China or in Venezuela (for the moment), it does so because the government allows it. There are no natural rights for humans for a right only exists if the government allows it.

 

Through Central and South America, we are seeing an alliance of fascist states, dubbed Marxist by its leaders but socialism is only a name applied to fool supporters and the international community. In the Miami herald, Carlos Montaner wrote, “Twenty-first-century socialism in Latin America actually consists of five socialisms, as many as the countries that constitute that caudillo-led, anti-republican, chaotic and authoritarian little world. They unite in anti-Americanism, in the conviction that individuals must be at the service of the State, not the opposite, in their contempt for the market and in the superstition that the caudillo knows exactly what benefits or hurts all citizens, but they're very different.”

 

I will propose that what Montaner is describing are five different forms of fascism, not the least because all of these governments are led by caudillo anti-Republicans who lead authoritarian or totalitarian governments. In Bolivia, caudillo Evo Morales hates modernity and worships Pachamama (the world Goddess) and if he could, he would return the world to a barter state of some distant pre-Columbus day whereas Hugo Chavez wants to lead an anti-American front in our backyard. Chavez has been eroding Venezuela constitutional rights over the past decade and is now ruling by decree. Montaner observed that Chavez “seeks the creation of a bloc united by the rejection of the political model wrought by the West during the Enlightenment.” In Nicaragua, Daniel Ortega has simply morphed into modern day Somoza, the former dictator overthrown by the Sandinistas.

 

We are not seeing a true consistent socialistic view of society but economic theories that often mixed ancient beliefs with the modern state technology. Morales is similar to jihadist who want to see an Islamic Medieval society since he too is attempting to move his country into a backward vision of a mythical society.

 

The biggest fascist state today is China where its communist beliefs are hardly accepted by anyone in China, including Communist Party leaders. The Chinese have introduced “Socialism with Chinese characteristics” by combining central planning with a market economy, but an economy still controlled by the party leaders.

 

Mark Lillia writing in the NewRepublic observed that many Chinese students are reading pro-Nazi philosopher and jurist Carl Schmitt. One student told Mr. Lillia, “I think it very important we study Romans, not just Greeks. Romans built an empire over many centuries. We must learn from them.” For the past decade, the Chinese are making it clear that they consider the United States a rival as oppose to being a partner and there is no doubt that Chinese are not looking to liberalize their political process anytime soon. While the Chinese have allowed markets to work, this was out of necessity as the economy was floundering with massive poverty in the 1970’s not out of ideology. The Chinese are not free market adherents, but pragmatists who realize that economic freedom is a necessity for growth but not out of conviction. Economic freedom is not a human right but right provided by the government to serve the state - which explains why freedom of religion or political rights are not a reality. What the Chinese have accomplished is to establish fascism with a Chinese face. The Chinese are serious about their place in the world. There are no goose steps or strutting Mussolinis but the Party runs the state with leaders in business suits while it attempts to be a dominant power in the world.

 

This is a follow up to a previous blog about my own view that we are seeing a rise in fascism - an ideology that allows the state to control all but allows its leader to tailor their ideology to their local needs. The Chinese have established a crony capitalism with businesses allowed to prosper but always understanding that their existence is only blessed by the state whereas Chavez pretends to be the second coming of Simon Bolivar, fighting the new imperialist power, the United States. In Bolivia, Eva Morales wants to turn back the clock to some pre-Columbian civilization in which local population merely live off the land. He is a Jihadist who wants to establish an empire guided by Medieval thoughts. All of these governments have one thing in common, the state rules all and any rights are mere gifts provided by the state.

Hi

We ALL see the pyramid scheme symbol on the back of the USA one dollar bill.  We ALL see the servitude infestation in capitalism.  We ALL see the "pay up or lose your wellbeing" Chicago mob-like felony extortion widespread within capitalism.  We ALL see the "join or starve" felony extortion done to the 18 year olds... by this ugly competer's church called capitalism.  We ALL see how forcing competer's religions onto 18 year olds, and/or LURING them into it with bling-dangling and promises of empowerments... kills membership in the cooperator's church (Christianity/socialism).  We ALL understand that AmWay (American Way) (New World Order) got "the exclusive" (legal tender) on the TYPE of survival coupons (money) accepted in supply depots (stores) and leverages 18 year olds into the organization via that felony activity. (It puts AmWay-coupon slaving requirements called price tags... on all the survival goods).  We ALL understand how sure-to-collapse farmyard pyramids work... from our childhoods. Upper 1/3 are "heads in the clouds" while the kids on the bottom ALWAYS GET HURT from the weight of the world's knees in their backs.  And, we ALL see how such systems are illegal, immoral, and just plain sick.

We American Christian socialists are patiently awaiting the natural fall of the pyramid-o-servitude, or the busting of the free marketeers felony... by the USA Dept of Justice.  We Christians are VERY CLOSE to issuing a cease and desist order until the servitude and inequality goes away... which means it turns into a commune.  Commune is a word we LOVE when used in the word "community"... but its one the caps HATE when used in the word "commune-ism".  Go fig.  PROGRAMMED!!

Do a Google IMAGE SEARCH for 'pyramid of capitalist' to see a full color picture made way back in 1911, when capitalism was first discovered to be a con/sham instigated by the Free Masons/Illuminati. Folks sure bought into the thing... hook, line, and sinker just the same.  The caps didn't even check if a string was attached!  Now THAT'S easy fishing, eh?

Time to level the felony pyramid scheme called capitalism.  Abolish economies and ownershipism worldwide, and hurry.  Economies just cause rat-racing, and rat-racing causes felony pyramiding.  BUST IT, America!  Look to the USA military supply/survival system... (and the USA public library system) for socialism and morals done right.  Equal, owner-less, money-less, bill-less, timecard-less, and concerned with growth of value-criteria OTHER THAN money-value.  Quit doing monetary discrimination immediately, and make it illegal.  There are MANY measurement criteria of "value"... not just dollars.  Try morals, efficiency, discrimination-levels, repairability, etc etc.  Economies are cancerous tumors, and to cheer for their growth... is just insane.  Profiting causes inflation, so if caps LIKE inflation, and if they LIKE a terrible time in afterlife when they meet the planet's ORIGINAL OWNER before caps tried to squat it all with ownershipism, then keep it up with the felony pyramiding.  I dare you.  While us Christians are finally bulldozing that pyramid scheme back to level, lets make servitude and "join or starve" (get a job or die) illegal in the USA, and lets level the architecture seen in USA courtrooms, too.  Right now, USA courtrooms are church simulators or "fear chambers", by special design.  Sick.

Isn't that back-of-the-dollar pyramid... a Columbian freemason symbol? And WHERE is the USA gov located? District of Columbia? (Not even part of the USA!)  How much more blatant can ya get?  The "Fed" runs a pyramid scheme called the free marketeers. If you're using the "federal reserve note" certificates, or using no-other-living-thing-on-the-planet entitles of ownership, you're bought into a servitude/slavery con/sham... called capitalism. Pyramiding 101.

Fascism is a political system not particularly economic in nature. There are three basic features of fascism, none of which is believed by 99% of Americans, Canadians, or Western Europeans. First, the State is viewed as an organic entity, an actual life form; most of us simply believe the state to be the laws that govern a citizenry and the people that administer and craft those laws--the entity with the monopoly on force, if you will. Second, fascism believes this peculiar State can be embodied in a single person, such as Mussolini, Hitler, and Emperor Hirohito. Third, fascism is characterized by territorial acquisition. 
Hugo Chavez' regime appears to fulfill all three criteria. First,  if you speak with his supporters for a long enough period of time, they will talk about the State as if it is a living entity--"do not insult the people", a Venezuelan said when I spoke ill of the Venezuelan government. Second,  El Presidente seems to be everything when it comes to the State in Venezuela; his dictatorial moves are thus hardly surprising (anyone ever wonder what the "emergency" was that caused these vicious decrees, by the by?) Finally, and most importantly, if you search his speeches with care you will see that he wants to be like Bolivar in a very particular fashion--to take over Columbia, Panama, and, of course, Bolivia. 
The reason to bring this up is not to insist upon Chavez' decapitation at present, but to remind everyone how important the extirpation of the Regime would be were Chavez to make a territorial grab. Hitler was emboldened when the world did nothing after the Rheinland conquest.  Japan was emboldened when the world sat on its haunches after the Mukden affair.
