Editor’s Note: The following entry written by Dresden Burns at the Renegade Tribune is quite astute and to the point considering all the terrain he covers in a blog-length post. It’s encouraging to find more and more Euro-Americans coming to the same conclusions – ‘better today than tomorrow, better tomorrow than the day after’.
Historically, Communism began with the Jewish social philosopher, Karl Marx, but demonstrably begins with the advent of the universal, collectivist teachings of Judeo-Christianity. Like Communists, Christians seek to spread themselves and their institutions up and over all the nations of the world, without regard for frontiers, borders, race, or culture. Christians insist that all the various and vastly different peoples on earth should sacrifice their native beliefs and traditions for an uncompromising, dogmatic, and most of all, alien ideology. For as Paul put it in Galatians 3:28:
There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.”
And in close resemblance:
Differences of age and sex have no longer any distinctive social validity for the working class.” -Karl Marx, Manifesto of the Communist Party
Combine that with the pseudo-socialist suggestions of the “New Testament” character, Jesus Christ, and you have yourself the first form of Marxism manufactured to subvert the minds of men, unsuspectingly and ever so innocently concealed behind the veneer of religion. The impractical and suicidal ideals of Jesus tell us to pursue a false dichotomy, to sacrifice our earthly existence in exchange for the prospect of an enjoyable afterlife.
Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.”
If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”
Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.”
Jesus’s contempt for the upper class and his self-sacrificing appeal to altruism parallels the same rhetoric spewed by Marxist agitators, such as Leon Trotsky (Lev Bronstein), as well as 21st century “liberals.” It is the same rhetoric preached by the poverty pimps who have facilitated the modern-day welfare state, in which a nation full of dependents, parasites, and fraudsters reach into the pockets of the productive portion of the population. Not to suggest there is anything inherently wrong with government aid, but its only purpose is to prevent immediate death and starvation until self-sufficiency can be achieved; not sustain a host and parasite relationship as it does today. As the proverb goes, “Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.” If giving to the poor accomplishes nothing in and of itself, other than the perpetuation of parasitism, then what does that say about the logic of Christianity, or the modern-day democratic party for that matter?
The sole purpose of genuine Socialism is to bring up the laboring class, the blue-collar worker to greater heights – with a hospitable work environment, fair pay, and reverence for his contribution to society. The underrated social status of the manual laborer trapped in the cracks of the Capitalist system, a system in which countrymen come second to production and profit, is the exact reason why the allure of Communism appealed to the working man. It draws upon his desperation, and it channels and nurtures his rightful contempt for his superiors. But, rather than harmonizing the lower and upper stratums of society by representing each social class equally, Communism heaves the lower class against the upper class like cannon fodder, demolishing the possibility of a brotherly reconciliation.
Stoking the flames of social unrest, the Commissars incite class warfare and then provide a misleading solution – the proposal of a class structure, which guarantees an eternal reservation at the very position the lower class seeks to graduate; which is the amalgamation of social classes into one, subordinated under the State. In the end, a cruel aristocracy never revokes the right to exploit the subservient, but rather the new aristocracy becomes the State. Communism is the proverbial wolf cloaked in sheep’s wool, veiling itself under the guise of Socialism. The intention of Communism is not to create a brotherhood of man or an economic structure that ameliorates the lives of the exploited. The aim of Communism is to create slaves out of nations that the Commissars can then lord over.
Christianity may be the “unofficial” precursor to Communism, but Communism officially begins with the Bolshevik revolution. In 1903, the Bolsheviks were formed as a sect of the Russian Social Democratic Labor Party (RSDLP). Their ambition was not to reconcile the disproportionate divide between the employee and the employer, or peacefully resolve the class struggle waged between them, but rather their remedy was to mass slaughter the aristocracy, including the Tsar of Russia and his entire family. Grigori Zinoviev, a lead Commissar who spoke at a meeting of Communists in September 1918, effectively pronounced a death sentence on ten million human beings:
We must carry along with us 90 million out of the 100 million of Soviet Russia’s inhabitants. As for the rest, we have nothing to say to them. They must be annihilated.”
The Missing Link
Censored and marginalized by both Soviet and American historians is the fundamental role Jews played in the creation of Communism and the Bolshevik revolution. Although Jews were no more than 5% of the Russian population, they played a substantial role in the overthrow of the Russian government, the mass slaughter of the intellectual and noble classes of Russia, and the institution of the Soviet Union. Leading Jewish rebels included, Vladimir Lenin (Vladimir Ulyanov), Leon Trotsky (Lev Bronstein), Yakov Sverdlov (Solomon), Grigori Zinoviev (Radomyslsky), Lev Kamenev (Rosenfeld), and Moisei Uritsky.
A very telling article written by Winston Churchill titled, Zionism Versus Bolshevism, published in the Sunday Herald, February 8th, 1920, reveals the Jewish role in the international spread of Communism.
There is no need to exaggerate the part played in the creation of Bolshevism and in the actual bringing about of the Russian Revolution by these international and for the most part atheistical Jews. It is certainly a very great one; it probably outweighs all others. This movement among the Jews is not new. From the days of Spartacus-Weishaupt to those of Karl Marx, and down to Trotsky (Russia), Bela Kun (Hungary), Rosa Luxembourg (Germany), and Emma Goldman (United States), this world-wide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilization and for the reconstitution of society on the basis of arrested development, of envious malevolence, and impossible equality, has been steadily growing. It played, as a modern writer, Mrs. Webster, has so ably shown, a definitely recognizable part in the tragedy of the French Revolution. It has been the mainspring of every subversive movement during the Nineteenth Century; and now at last this band of extraordinary personalities from the underworld of the great cities of Europe and America have gripped the Russian people by the hair of their heads and have become practically the undisputed masters of that enormous empire. Although in all these countries there are many non-Jews every whit as bad as the worst of the Jewish revolutionaries, the part played by the latter in proportion to their numbers in the population is astonishing.”
In parallel to the “hate-speech” and “holocaust denial” laws in Europe today, the newborn Soviet government issued a decree a few months after taking power that made “anti-Semitism,” which is to say, objective criticism of the Jews, a capital crime (punishable by death) in Russia.
Might is Right Principle
Why have Communist regimes historically ruled with the ruthlessness of an iron fist? The Marxists’ attempt to convince the working classes that Communism is the answer to their problems resulted in failure. Karl Marx’s plan flopped. The various social classes had no desire to relinquish their private property and renounce their social status. The workers of the world had no desire to forfeit their national identify, their allegiance to their king and country, in exchange for a one world international collectivist society. Therefore, violent insurgence, militant force, mass slaughter, and evidently intrusive demands became the ways in which Communism was imposed on its victims. However, this required too much force on behalf of the tyrants and too much opposition on behalf of the tyrannized. As growing resentment and fear of the Red terror began to spread throughout Europe and the whole of the white world, the Marxists found it prudent to pursue a path of less resistance by adapting their strategy.
A New Approach
In a book titled, The Authoritarian Personality, co-authored by four Jewish intellectuals, it was declared that ethnocentrism expressed by Whites (and only Whites) is an indication of psychiatric disorder. This audacious claim has also been propagated by the works of other famous Jewish psychologists, including Richard Hofstadter and Erich Fromm. Where did this attack on white identity begin?
In 1923, a movement led by members of the Marxist Communist party, determined to dismantle traditional views on psychology and human behavior, began at the Institute for Social Research in Frankfurt, Germany. It later became known as simply The Frankfurt School. The school was founded by a Jewish Communist named Georg Lukács, and funded by a wealthy Jewish Communist by the name of Felix Weil. In 1930, under the direction of Max Horkheimer, also a Communist Jew, the team began mixing the ideas of Sigmund Freud with those of Karl Marx, and “Cultural Marxism” was born. Communism was transformed from an economic policy to a cultural revolution.
According to classical Marxism, the workers of the world were oppressed by the ruling classes. The new and improved theory was that minority groups in society were psychologically oppressed by the institutions of Western culture. The school concluded that an academic reform, focused on supplanting the institutional authorities of white society, would serve as the proper catalyst for the overthrow of Western Civilization. The Frankfurt School Marxists then began working towards an order which would invert the Western social hierarchy and turn its chain of command upside down, making it ripe for the taking by the Communist revolutionaries.
The Frankfurt School’s founding fathers sought to popularize ideas that would break down the group identity of Western society by dissolving traditional gender roles and racial identity. Natural human instincts and survival mechanisms that the ages had evolved were viewed as dangerous defects in which psychiatrists and social workers are behooved to decondition and reprogram. The scientific observation of biology in relation to race was promoted as politically incorrect. The preservation of natural gender roles was labeled oppressive and stereotypical. Racial pride and reverence was construed as a psychopathy and a projection of hatred towards others.
These rebellious claims ultimately allowed the Frankfurt School sociologists to begin chipping away at the group identity of Whites. This was accomplished by guilt-tripping white people into misidentifying themselves as an oppressive group. Trigger words, such as “xenophobe” and “homophobe” were aimed against the heterosexual white male as a psychological battering ram used to inject feelings of shame and sorrow for adhering to a culture of fraternalism and intolerance. By concentrating nearsighted emphasis on European man’s historical exploitation of land and slave labor, Whites were effectively vilified as a group with a history portrayed as uniquely hostile. It was not long before white people began to feel unworthy of asserting themselves as a group, rendering them a distant and divided bunch of individuals, which in turn made them easier to outmaneuver by the coordinated efforts of a cohesive group. This allowed the cohesive group to seize power and affluence throughout white society by dividing and conquering the parent population. Mental subversion rather than physical coercion became the new, modernized face of Communism in Western society.
A Reaction to Marxism
In response to the spread of Cultural Marxism, the National Socialist and Fascist movement emerged as a counterculture in defense of national identity throughout Germany and much of Europe. Realizing the futility of their efforts in Germany, the Marxists of The Frankfurt School packed their bags and moved to New York City, where they hoped they would be met with less opposition to their controversial and subversive teachings. In 1934, The Frankfurt School was reborn at Columbia University where its members began to exert their visions of “equality” and “tolerance” on American culture. By appealing to the altruism of white people, the founders of The Frankfurt School were able to radically dismantle Western schools of thought and establish their ideas as the foundation of modern-day psychology and sociology. Once the Frankfurt School’s agenda had been systemically instituted, Whites were socially conditioned to sacrifice their own group interests for the interests of foreign groups. This dismemberment of the group identity of Whites and the liquidation of the Western patriarchy explains why Whites are no longer entitled, nor feel entitled to organized political or social representation. Reversibly, Whites now seek to marginalize themselves among other groups.
The Defeat of Communism’s Rivals
After Capitalist America and Communist Russia defeated the Axis Powers – the very countries that were abolishing Communism in Europe – there was no longer an opposing force in Europe to mitigate the insidious growth of Cultural Marxism. One could argue that the founding of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), an international military alliance between America and Western Europe, halted the spread of the Soviet Union. That may be true militarily, but before WWII even began, Marxism had evolved into a cultural movement and was already marching its way through Western institutions.
Furthermore, the American government refused to overtake the Soviet Union at the most opportune time possible, despite earnest attempts to do so by US military leaders. After Germany had been defeated, and American and Russian troops had seized Berlin, General George Patton pleaded with General Dwight Eisenhower for permission to subdue the Red Army after it had been heavily depleted from its war with Germany. Patton claimed he could take Berlin in just “two days,” an assessment shared by the commander of the 9th Army, General William H. Simpson.
As with Prague, Patton’s request to secure Berlin was denied. As Patton stood before the demolished city, he wrote to his wife on July 21, 1945, ” for the first week after they took it (Berlin), all women who ran were shot and those who did not were raped. I could have taken it (instead of the Soviets) had I been allowed.” Earlier that year, at the February conference in Yalta, President Roosevelt, with Churchill at his side, extended the hand of friendship to “Uncle Joe” Stalin and signed a genocidal pact that guaranteed millions of German soldiers and civilians would be reduced to mass starvation, blood revenge, and death camps. Had Patton’s attempts to free Eastern Europe from the Communist yoke been successful, he could have prevented the further deaths of millions of Europeans, as well as the “Cold War.”
The Downfall of America
As the Soviet Union continued its Communist campaign in Eastern Europe, the Frankfurt School psychologists proceeded to gnaw away at the roots of Western values in America. In the cultural sphere, record executives began recruiting and grooming artists who would encourage sexual promiscuity and drug use. Poor judgement, a propensity for degeneracy, and a readiness to sell one’s soul became the new necessary prerequisites to achieve fame and stardom in the mainstream music industry. Exceptional musicianship, raw talent, and intellectual songwriting are no longer attributes of the critically acclaimed recording artist.
American cinema suffered the same fate. American Cinema standards were formerly safeguarded by the Motion Picture Production Code and enforced by the House of un-American Activities Committee. Since the early 1900’s, the MPPC and HUAC ensured that films were oriented with the broad audience in mind by preventing themes of an obscene or treasonous nature from contaminating the theater. The content of children’s programming was screened and approved by a national review board before being deemed safe and appropriate for family viewing.
All of that changed after members of the Communist Party of the United States of America (CPUSA) infiltrated government, schools, the entertainment industry and many other areas of American life. Utilizing the influential power of the motion picture industry, Communists slowly but surely began testing the public’s perceptiveness by slipping vulgarity and Communist teachings into the fabric of the American people’s lives, via the television set; crying “censorship” and “oppression” when met with opposition on behalf of an enraged audience.
Soon after, screenwriters and directors, who became known as the “Hollywood Ten,” six of whom were Jewish, received jail sentences and were banned from working in the motion picture industry. Besides the Hollywood Ten, other members of the film industry with Communist ties were later banned from show business. Unfortunately, the Hollywood blacklist came to an end in the 1960’s.
The Communists were able to pervert the American Constitution and manipulate its democratic principles by preying upon the American people’s sense of liberty and freedom of expression. Gradually, through tedious and persistent efforts, they were able to wield the influence of the mass media to subvert the opinions of the common folk. This led to the decommissioning of the people’s protective committees and an abolishment of regulatory codes, the people’s last line of defense. The Communists changed their names, took on the less stigmatized roles of “liberal progressives,” “neo-conservatives,” and “democrats,” and then reentered Hollywood, where they remain uncontested, pushing hedonism and decadence upon the mass populace and growing more provocative as time passes us by.
One World Government
Tracing back to 1942, during the second world war, the representatives of 26 nations pledged their governments to continue fighting what they called the “Axis Powers.” Coined by Franklin Roosevelt, the 26 nations called themselves the United Nations, which officially came into existence after the defeat of the Axis countries in 1945. Its charter was ratified by the foremost countries of China, France, the Soviet Union, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The first Secretary General of the UN was Alger Hiss, who was later brought to trial for Communist espionage and was found guilty for perjury. It was Hiss along with Joseph E. Johnson who drafted the charter of the United Nations. It is no coincidence that the constitution of the United Nations is virtually identical to the constitution of the USSR. The UN is an integral part of the one-world government the “Allied Powers” sought to create. As Winston Churchill put it,
The creation of an authoritative World Order is the ultimate end to which we must strive.”
Dr. Brock Chisum, the former director of the World Health Organization, a satellite agency of the United Nations, said,
To achieve world government it is necessary to remove from the minds of men their individualism, loyalty to family traditions, national patriotism, and religious dogma.”
The UN is an international entity whose founders’ aim is to neutralize the national sovereignty of each nation; cloaking itself, of course, under a humanitarian cause. Through the legislation of treaties, the UN is able to impose international laws on independent nations as the governing body sees fit; laws which supersede each country’s own national law. If a member nation violates the standards of conduct set forth by the UN, economic sanctions, such as embargoes can be imposed. If the member nation still refuses compliance, more aggressive military action may be taken against that nation. In other words, if another nation in the course of history deems it necessary to purge Marxist infiltrators from its ranks and institutions, lest their national life continue to be corrupted from the inside out, the UN can come to the Marxists’ rescue serving as the beacon of “human rights,” crying “discrimination” and “persecution” in defense of the infiltrator.
The European Union, formed in 1993, is another Communist outfit, which is most notably imposing immigration quotas on European nations. The most recent demand made by the EU is the acceptance of millions of Syrian civil war “refugees.” The EU quotas force each European nation to accept a preset number of immigrants or face absurd punitive fines and ridicule. While the whole of Europe is collectively forced to share the burden of alien immigrants, the entire Middle East – the Arab Gulf Countries, the Unite Arab Emirates, and Israel are refusing to accept Syrian immigrants, nor are they mandated to do so with immigration quotas. A member of the “Syrian Community in Denmark” posed a most pertinent question, “How did we flee from the region of our Muslim brethren, which should take more responsibility for us than a country we describe as infidels?
To add insult to injury, EU officials are now finally admitting that most of the people politicians have been affectionately calling “refugees” are not refugees. They are male economic migrants with no more right to be called European citizens than any other foreign immigrant. Even Frans Timmermans, Vice President of the European Commission, stated, “These are people that you can assume have no reason to apply for refugee status.” According to his estimate, at least 60% of the migrants in Europe are economic migrants, not refugees.
Richard Kalergi, founder of the Pan-European Union, wrote in his 1925 book titled, Impractical Idealism,
The man of the future will be a mongrel. Today’s races and classes will disappear owing to the disappearing of space, time, and prejudice. The Eurasian-Negroid race of the future, similar in its outward appearance to the Ancient Egyptians, will replace the diversity of peoples with a diversity of individuals.”
The Pan-European Union was the forerunner of today’s European Union. Connect the dots and the plot becomes clear. Erode the racial instincts of white people, exaggerate their altruistic sensibilities, and then flood their countries with foreign migrants under the humanitarian pretense of rescuing asylum seekers.
The Illusion of Freedom
Most people think Communism in the West began with the rise of the Soviet Union in 1922 and ended with its dissolution in 1991. The fact that Communism had mutated itself and infiltrated institutions far outside the realm of the USSR never occurs to them. And the idea that after the fall of the Soviet empire, all the Communists of the world somehow faded away like a fart in the wind just goes without saying. Well then…. Where did they disappear off to? Unlike the National Socialists, who were executed in mass, the Soviets never had to answer for their crimes. They were left to assimilate into Western society.
Consequently, Communism has become just as American as apple pie, and it remains just as much alive as it was during its period of Soviet expansionism. The Marxists simply took off their Communist masks and put on their Capitalist masks. The projection of this whole “left wing” and “right wing” contradiction is a false dichotomy designed to keep the masses lost on either end of the political spectrum, never finding the truth, which lies somewhere in between. That may be a real brain buster for those who still have their head wrapped around the idea that Communism and Capitalism are diametrically opposed. In actuality, Communism is nothing more than State Capitalism. In the Communist nation, the Capitalists come in the form of the government. While in the Capitalist nation, the rulers are the private corporations. Communism and Capitalism are two sides of the same coin that in the end bear the same result, which is the oppression of the people under a ruling elite. Nowhere more than Capitalist America are people so hopelessly enslaved under the belief they are free. For all practices and purposes, de facto Communism pervades the cultural and economic life in America. Completely unbeknownst to the average American, it is shocking just how many fundamentals of Communism are legally enforced in the “land of the free.”
Let’s take a look at the 10 planks of the Communist Manifesto and see how they have permeated American life.
- Abolition of Private Property. Every American is forced to pay a property tax or have their home seized by the federal government. (You really do not own something if you have to continually pay fees to maintain ownership of it.)
- Heavy Progressive Income Tax. Americans are forced to pay an income tax – the most humiliating tax of all as it wrongfully implies the government owns the wages of its citizens.
- Abolition of all Rights of Inheritance. Another Marxian attack on private property rights is in the form of Federal & State estate taxes and other inheritance taxes, which have abolished or at least greatly diluted the right of private property owners to determine the disposition and distribution of their estates upon their death.
- Confiscation of Property of All Emigrants and Rebels. In other words, shake down anyone who tries to flee from or rebel against the Communist despot. The PATRIOT Act enables the US government to imprison “terrorists,” or those who speak out or write against the government without trial or due process, and the IRS can confiscate your property without due process.
- Centralization of Credit in the Hands of a National Bank with an Exclusive Monopoly. The Federal Reserve Act of 1913, the same year income taxes were enforced, placed the American money supply in the control of private individuals exempt from government oversight, putting them above the law. The Federal Reserve Bank and its branches have no federal affiliation. US dollars, which were formerly printed and circulated by the US Treasury, are now printed by the Fed and lent to the US government at interest. Fiat currency printed by the Fed has reduced the US government and its citizens into debt slaves by creating national debt and inflation.
- Government Control of Communications and Transportation. Seen a private road or bridge lately? Thank the Department of Transportation and the Interstate Commerce Commission. Who licenses all radio and television? US, communication and transportation are controlled and regulated by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Only the First Amendment saves the print press from federal licensing, but special interests are lobbying to pass “hate-speech” laws, which will further erode that freedom.
- Government Ownership of Factories and Agriculture. While the US does not have vast “collective farms,” which failed so miserably in the Soviet Union, we nevertheless do have a significant degree of government involvement in agriculture in the form of price support subsidies, acreage allotments, and land-use controls. The Desert Entry Act and The Department of Agriculture, as well as the Department of Commerce and Labor and the IRS control business through corporate regulations
- Government Control of Labor. The Social Security Administration, The Department of Labor the Equal Rights Amendment, the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Affirmative Action, the Federal Public Works Program are all ways in which the federal government directly controls private enterprise. Programs like Affirmative Action discriminate against Whites and gives non-whites an artificial advantage in business and academics.
- Combination of Agriculture and Manufacturing Industries. See how the chemical industry, including corporations such as DuPont and Monsanto are monopolizing agriculture and threatening the survival of organic farmers.
- Government Control of Education. Americans are taxed to support public schools whose curriculum is decided by the Department of Education, which ensures our children will be brainwashed by Marxist subversives.
So, is the US a “free country” today? I think not! Not compared to what it once was, at least not for White Americans. Yet, you see very few white people today challenging these Marxist institutions, and there are virtually no politicians calling for their repeal or even gradual phase-out; not to imply that any and all forms of government are innately no good. Strong leadership and oversight is essential to our people’s survival and advancement. However, we need to get our priorities straight. Our intention should not be to try to save this defective and decadent “democratic” system. Our only aim should be to completely raze it to the ground and start with a clean slate. It does not matter how our enemies repackage and sugarcoat their schemes. Whether it is “Capitalism” or “democracy,” as long as Whites remain incapacitated and paralyzed by political correctness, our people remain under the stranglehold of Marxism. The only cure to this cancerous growth is a reawakening of our group survival instincts and the restoration of our self-determination. As the founders and guardians of Western Civilization, we either stand united or we die divided. Unfortunately for us, our adversaries have disguised the very solution to our social problems as the disease itself.
