Constructing The 21st-Century Socialist State
From the Gates of Vienna:
In a speech at the University of Missouri on October 30th, 2008, just before he was elected President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama famously said, “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”
His words possessed a chilling resonance with those of Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov, better known to history as Lenin. In November 1917, after the Bolsheviks occupied the Tsar’s Winter Palace, Lenin sat down with his comrades in their opulent new offices and said calmly, “We shall now proceed to construct the socialist state.”
And so he did — and we all know how that turned out.
The new rulers of Soviet Russia needed money, so Stalin was sent with an armed detachment to the central bank, where he ordered employees to open up the vaults. He and his men hauled big sacks of money back to their offices and set up the brand new Soviet treasury.
Then, once the new system was up and running, Lenin ordered the complete abolition of money. When the country ground to a halt and starvation set in, he backed off a bit from his radical utopian measures, and instead substituted absolute control by the state. The result was mass slaughter, strategic famines, a huge network of slave labor camps, the export of terror and subversion abroad, and the all but total destruction of traditional Russian culture as it had existed before 1917.
Seventy-four years of brutality and degradation would elapse before the Russian people escaped from their nightmare, and the lingering effects of the Bolshevik Revolution are far from over, even today.
Unfortunately for the ambitions of President Obama, America in 2010 is not Russia in 1917. For their human raw material Lenin and Stalin had millions of penniless and illiterate peasants who were relatively easy to coerce. Obama, in contrast, faces a nation of affluent suburbanites. Russia in 1917 was all but undeveloped, and the Bolsheviks could forcibly industrialize it to build a permanent power base for themselves. Obama, on the other hand, must destroy the existing structures if he ever hopes to effect his fundamental transformation.
The Husseinization of America over the last year and a half has involved inconceivable amounts of new debt, increased government control over an already damaged economy, abandonment of America’s allies, outreach to its enemies, unprecedented interference in the private decisions of citizens, and proposed restrictions on our civil liberties.
From Obamacare to the Gulf oil spill, one can’t escape the feeling that all of this is going according to plan, and that the plan depends on the systematic ruin of the United States as an economic and military power.
But why? What possible end can Obama and his far-left handlers hope to achieve?
Totalitarian control of a completely devastated country?
Anyone of modest intelligence, even a totalitarian Marxist, should be able to discern that the policies of the Obama administration cannot possibly produce the desired results. The United States can be destroyed, but it cannot be transformed by debt and disarmament into a revenant 21st-century Soviet Union.
So why do it?
