So, What is Socialism?

Fortunately, we have one of the world’s foremost experts, Vladimir Lenin, to point us to the answer.  He gained his expertise by being a principal participant in Communism’s “tabula rasa” (i.e.-“empty slate before receiving outside impressions”) takeover of Russia in 1917 and subsequent destruction of that nation.  He said “Communism is Socialism in a hurry.”[i] From this we can just turn to the Communist Manifesto to find the underpinnings of Socialism:

10 Conditions For Transition To Communism

  1. Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of land to public purposes.
  2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.
  3. Abolition of all right of inheritance.
  4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.
  5. Centralisation of credit in the hands of the State, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly.
  6. Centralisation of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the State.
  7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the State; the bringing into cultivation of waste-lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.
  8. Equal liability of all to labour.  Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture.
  9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of the distinction between town and country, by a more equitable distribution of the population over the country.
  10. Free education for all children in public schools.  Abolition of children’s factory labour in its present form.  Combination of education with industrial production.

. . . .In short, the Communists everywhere support every revolutionary movement against the existing social and political order of things.[ii]

Check out "A Simple Guide"Socialism is therefore the sum of all the schemes and techniques that are undertaken to achieve these end goals against the existing social and political order of things.

The “Elites” are those who think they know better about how you should lead your life than you do.  They hold power over you while you try to earn a living selling your labor and skills for a profit.

Socialists are “Elites” who attack the existing social order by all manner of means and techniques to establish the conditions for transition to communism.

The most instructive definition of Socialism is that it is the human condition resulting from the Elites’ imposition of their desire to make people do what they want them to do.  Its final form is usually a single-party, non-democratic government, or outright tyranny, where a collapsed economy and loss of human rights impoverishes and destroys the people.  The world is full of proofs of this definition.

In fact, A Simple Guide: How Liberalism, A Euphemism For Socialism, Destroys Peoples and Nations escorts you on a global tour where you can make your own judgments about this definition of Socialism.  Russia will be an especially pointed discussion.

Having then convinced you of this general definition of Socialism, the Simple Guide will then take you on an unprecedented tour of our own governmental processes to observe what techniques and schemes our “Elites” have been using for almost 100 years to achieve final and perpetual single-party control of America and her citizens!!

    This is one of the most simplistic and inaccurate bit of flotsam I have seen online. I would be very interested in seeing what you would do with the word, fascism. The “elites” to which you refer are the “conservatives” who have managed to deregulate business, create megolithic corporations and sell us both individually and nationally to China among others. Shame on you!

    here are many things the Socialists are working hard to implement. Capturing the minds of all children is certainly a priority.Another is keeping socialists politicians in charge of the House and Senate.This is what is behind their support of open borders and eliminating the electoral college-putting the control of the Nation in the hands of the large Metropolitan areas.But every Dictator knows he/she must control all forms of the media.Socialists already control the universities,seminaries, the film industry, the mainline news networks and the mainline Churches are espousing their social agenda from the pulpit. Socialist/Communist/Fascist Dictators in the past had to “burn the books” but the current totalitarian dictators have a new problem-The INTERNET!Now comes the failed host of Socialist radio(other than NPR) Senator Al Franken to sell Net Neutrality to the American people. This is one of the most dangerous concepts the Socialists have introduced.The internet and conservative radio are the last bastions of free thought in America and Dictators must control all forms of communication to stay in power. Net Neutrality rules will force private radio and private servers/web sites off the internet.They are working toward nationalization of all forms of communication and production.They already have the auto industry, health care, and the financial sectors of our economy.We have to draw a line in the sand and take back our country from those that want to destroy our American Republic forever!

    ,co-authored Ending the US War in Afghanistan with
    David Wildman.He is Executive Secretary for Human Rights and Racial Justice with the General Board of Global Ministries, United Methodist Church. He has regional responsibilities relating to the Middle East and Afghanistan and has in recent years traveled to Afghanistan four times.
    5. The Board has accepted the socialist belief that all the injustices in the world have been caused by capitalism, racism ,colonialism,US imperialism and US foreign policies.

    6. On February 22-23, thirty-two leaders from Central and South America gathered in Cancun to organize the new regional union of “Latin American and Caribbean States.” Communist rulers from Cuba and Venezuela were warmly welcomed. The United States and Canada were not invited.

    Nor was Porfirio Lobo, Honduras’ new president. Instead, the leaders planned to discuss the issue of his legitimacy. Some still denied the unwanted facts behind the legal removal of the corrupt former President Zelaya — a collaborator with Communist Hugo Chavez and the drug lords ..The GBCS strongly supported President Zelaya.

    The GBCS strongly supports the UN and its desire for a world governance and its distinctly Anti-Israel policies.The Board strongly supported Kofi Annan even after the Anti- American farewell speech.

    wouldn’t a democratic government become communist if those same 10 transitions were made lmao

    Wow this is a great resource.. I’m enjoying it.. good article

  5. Noelle says:
     
     

    only the completely uninformed or brain-washed would accept this description of \socialism\ or even communism, for that matter. The author clearly is only a half step above the narcissistic schizophrenic that passes out poorly xeroxed copies of his conspiracy report on the street corner. Anyone trying to use this as a resource should really source out the original quotes and materials, as they’ve been horribly misconstrued and bent to say things they didn’t originally mean.

  6. GetAClueNoelle says:
     
     

    Like SURE! I know, Right, Noelle??!!! Of course, these dumb peoples don’t know the true Joy and Love that Socialism gives the world. Look at all the places and times when it has worked across the globe…. I mean, for sure, if you look at Russia, China, Cambodia, Vietnam, etc… they only had to kill Millions and Millions of people to implement their socialist plans. Man, Socialism is just awesome!!! Tax the rich!! Eat the rich!!! Then all the poor can create jobs and run things… Totally cool eh!??
