If you want to peer into the twisted psyche of today’s moonbat reeling in reaction to the midterm elections, grab plenty of duct tape and head on over to “Blue Virginia.” There you can find out how they believe their political future relies upon fostering a Communist revolution to sweep away free markets, replace them with a command-and-control economy, and “re-educate” the proletarian masses to love political philosophies handed down by Democrat Party “elites.” About the only substantial difference between today’s manifesto and the one penned long ago by Karl Marx is that this one is penned in English.
Here in all its glory is the action plan by Teddy Goodson that lays waste to any notion that there’s a whit of difference between the Marxism-Leninism and “Progressives:”
Democrats must enunciate an alternate political-economic theory to replace the pernicious Free Market Theory so beloved of Republicans. It sanctified personal greed and the unregulated mystic “free market.” It brought us a new form of ruthless colonialism, and inevitably the Wall Street meltdown, economic collapse, and environmental degradation. Although worshiped as “capitalism,” today’s finance-dominated international corporotism is capitalism on steroids, and it deserves another name and a better description. Economic theory has moved beyond the Keynesian ideas of the mid-twentieth century, and it is time now to get rid of Friedmanism as well. Free market capitalism still has value, but lacks a mechanism for including social costs and environmental costs in its pricing mechanisms, it clearly cannot cope with computer-driven stock markets to direct capital flows—- in fact it fails on a global and macro level not merely to describe the market but to allocate investment well on its own. Democrats do have the basics of a political-economic philosophy describing the purpose of government. One short-hand description is the slogan “We’re in this together.” If you cannot agree, you should not be considered a Democrat.
When efforts to bring about social or political change fail initially, the most effective answer is to “take it to the people.” Arnold Toynbee, in his monumental Study of History, pointed out that it is the elites who bring along the vast majority of people, educating them to accept improvements. When intellectuals in Tsarist Russia failed repeatedly in attempts to Europeanize (read “modernize”) Russia they gave up on bringing change through the aristocratic elites, and “went to the people.” One reason the Republicans have been successful is their relentless training of the public in their version of free market capitalism. Therefore, progressives will have to stop talking endlessly to each other, and personally educate Americans on Democratic values and philosophy, especially in contrast to the Republican worship of impersonal, corporate greed and the wealthy haves versus the have-nots. Union organizers and social workers understand this well, and the techniques are already well understood. Lakoff has already provided lessons in re-framing issues and the dialog necessary to re-program minds into seeing and understanding things from a progressive point of view. Such re-programming is not easy; it requires constant repetition from the highest level on down by every progressive in every community.
Really, just soak in this hard-core Communist goodness. It has everything. Destroy capitalism. Impose a command economy run by political elites to replace it. Re-educate the populace to accept the end of their liberty, for the collective good. There’s even a reference in there about how the Communist Revolution in Russia was somehow a good thing. Folks, this roadmap endorsed by the biggest “progressive” mouthpiece in the Commonwealth is the future they envision for America. It is Soviet-style Communism, plain and simple, and in pretty stark and refreshingly unambiguous terms.
The next two years ought to be really interesting. In a debate between those who wish to restore the founding principles of our republic and those who want to replace it with a Communist utopia, given just how strongly the current administration is showing us what the reality of that utopia might actually look like, I figure the exchange will end pretty darned quickly.
Let’s hope this is the actual game plan of the “progressive” movement. I really doubt their attempts going forward to “re-program minds” with Communist ideology is going to be any more successful than their efforts to do so in the sixties and seventies. The ultimate result of that effort led to this, which is a fitting final word to this stunning nonsense.
