In the following brief video, Professor Jordan Peterson outlines the relationship of Marxism to Postmodernism and explains why the argument is false that what the Russian Revolution produced was not “true Marxism,” which would have brought about the desired utopia without all the bloodshed.
His explanation is so obviously correct that it's difficult to see how anyone can maintain the contrary. Marxism's historical track record amply demonstrates that it is the road to mass murder and dire poverty for the “masses” that are supposed to benefit from it. To prevent our country from being under socialism is a cause worth fighting for, to the death if necessary.
Socialist leaders have no moral objection to anything that would help bring about their desired form of collectivist government. It would be a murderous and lawless disaster. The main incentive it provides is not national prosperity or peace or virtue, but the possible opportunity to control others. A collectivist economy cannot produce anything above bare subsistence or starvation for most of the people. It would produce a fear-driven society. The “free” things offered would ultimately be worthless or nearly so. Security is a condition that many would never experience. Truth from any official source would seldom if ever be heard.
Yet that is what the “democratic socialists” in America are working to bring about. The absurdly unhinged rhetoric and behavior of the rabid anti-Trump left, including violent acts and threats of violence, should be sufficient warning that the leaders of this movement would be willing to seize power by committing atrocities if they thought it necessary.
There is no likelihood of reasoning with these people. They must be defeated. They are led by radicalized anti-American, anti-liberty, and anti-white fanatics. This characterizes much of the Democratic Party leadership today. They are not merely political opponents of non-leftists, but, rather, domestic enemies of the United States.
In America, organized socialism equals communism.
It is time that the American people understood this fact. The principal leftist practitioners of it agree. As Far Left Watch, an anti-socialist website, points out, the tactics and goals of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), the largest socialist organization in the U.S., are the same as those of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA), with whom they work very closely with Democrat politicians, as documented by Trevor Loudon.* This is nothing new. What's new is their willingness to openly and plainly tell us what and who they are.
Far Left Watch notes that when one of DSA's leaders tweeted that “communism is a good thing,” several other DSA leaders of various chapters joined in praising communism.
This far-left political organization previously made headlines when leadership from their Iowa State campus chapter encouraged people to shoot President Trump and when leadership from their University of Georgia Chapter called for the execution of house GOP members. Now multiple DSA leaders are publicly endorsing communism, an ideology responsible for the oppression, incarceration, and murder of tens of millions of people.To slow or stop this push toward socialism will require strong citizen opposition and a better understanding of what we're up against. It is not simply mass hysteria but planned and coordinated action to undermine and bring down America as a sovereign and free nation. Fortunately, the socialists are not as numerous or powerful as they pretend to be.
