Communism Kills by dashinvaine Communism Kills by dashinvaine
Another risky foray into politics, although perhaps a useful health warning...

The quote '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' is from Winston Churchill in 1920. Communism would clock up millions more killings before the century was out.

I define Marxism, broadly, as a view of history as an ongoing class struggle between oppressors and oppressed groups. The 'oppressed' are generally imagined to be almost wholly virtuous, and not responsible in any way for their fate. 'Social justice' to Marxist eyes, involves labelling a better off-group as oppressors and dispossessing/plundering them for the benefit of the supposed victims of 'oppression'. Marxism also involves some flawed economic theories, such as that work investment rather than demand creates value.

Socialism is a sort of collectivist system set up to ensure the welfare of all members of a given group, with key assets held as common property. Doesn't necessarily involve Marxist dogma.

Communism is the abolition of private property and the centralization of credit, industry, etc. in the hands of the state. In practice it always involves a lot of killing people who don't get with the programme, and highly intrusive government.

The international working class of industrialised nations were supposed to be the foot-soldiers for Communist revolution, establishing a sort of 'equality' (albeit devoid of individual liberty) once the 'class enemy' was removed by violent revolution. Revolutionary terrorism was built into the ideology from the get-go.

Cultural Marxism was an unorthodox outgrowth of Marxism, originating with the ideologues of the Frankfurt School in the 1920s. The cultural Marxists gave up on the Western working class as the revolutionary 'proletariat', and looked for alternative 'oppressed' groups to patronise and agitate among. That while attacking traditional Western Civilization via 'critical theory', cultural relativism, the sexual revolution and the promotion of white guilt- all this in order to undermine Western civilization's confidence and soften it up for the envisaged revolution that never came. Leftist professors engaged in this kind of propagandising were called 'useful idiots' by the Soviets, who would soon have liquidated them had they actually rolled in...

Many of these ideas have become general in the culture, mislabelled as 'liberal', among people who aren't aware of their origin or their original function, and even pervade nominally 'conservative' circles. Cultural Marxism is now in a curious league with globalist capitalism, which is also an enemy of traditionalist conservativism and a threat to the conservation of authentic national cultures.




Some of the worst genocides in history were committed by Communists, notably Mao, Stalin, Mengistu and Pol Pot.
www.scaruffi.com/politics/dict… Lenin and Trotsky were also ruthless mass-murderers.

Communism completely failed in the old Soviet Union, but unfortunately the intellectual heirs of Marx (via Herbert Marcuse and the like) are all too influential in the West, especially in academia. Anyone thinking of going to college, especially to study the arts, humanities or 'social sciences' should be wary of Cultural Marxist brainwashing. Look out for anyone who calls themselves 'progressive', or who likes to generalise about groups as oppressors or oppressed. This simplistic dichotomy is straight out of the Communist Manifesto. Look out for their double-standards, and their vituperative attacks on Western Civilization by use of one-sided 'critical theory'.

The killing of the Tsar and his family was on Lenin's orders. The daughters were finished off with bayonets. Thousands of Russians were summarily executed by the Cheka, the Communist secret police, in the aftermath of the Bolshevik coup and during the Red Terror.

Trotsky said:
'As for us, we were never concerned with the Kantian-priestly and vegetarian-Quaker prattle about the “sacredness of human life.” We were revolutionaries in opposition, and have remained revolutionaries in power. To make the individual sacred we must destroy the social order that crucifies him. And this problem can be solved only by blood and iron.' (Leon Trotsky, Terrorism and Communism, 4, Terrorism


One of the atrocities of the Soviet Union was the genocide in Ukraine 1932-3, known as the Holodomor, where a deliberate famine was used to break the people's resistance... The following is a quote from a communist leader speaking in the Kharkiv region in 1934:

"Famine in Ukraine was brought on to decrease the number of Ukrainians, replace the dead with people from other parts of the USSR, and thereby to kill the slightest thought of any Ukrainian independence."

- V. Danilov et al., Sovetskaia derevnia glazami OGPU_NKVD. T. 3, kn. 2. Moscow 2004. P. 572

The Communist state did not consider itself bound by the Tsarist regime's signing of the Hague Convention, and thus gave itself licence to carry out many war crimes.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soviet_w…


Estimates at the total number of people killed by Communism during the 20th century range as high as 150 million (which is the figure worked out by R. J. Rummel. www.hawaii.edu/powerkills/NOTE…

The 'Black book of Communism' places the figure at 95 million en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Blac…


So it seems reasonable to go with 100 million as a round figure.

Pertinent article by Jim Goad:

I was censoring myself on one particular aspect, and the realisation has been gnawing at me, and feeling like cowardice. A brief quote from Christopher Hitchens suffices to address this matter:
'And thus to my final and most melancholy point: a great number of Stalin’s enforcers and henchmen in Eastern Europe were Jews. And not just a great number, but a great proportion. The proportion was especially high in the secret police and “security” departments, where no doubt revenge played its part, as did the ideological attachment to Communism that was so strong among internationally minded Jews at that period.'

One more thing- what about Che Guevara? He was pretty cool, right? No, he was a psychopath who murdered children:

Well you could argue that monarchies have a similar toll.

And Fascism was not far behind, I think it would have caught up if it lasted longer. I mean the USSR and China were communist for decades on end.

There again some might say fascism was only a reaction to communism...

What do you think about corporatism ?

Inevitable that some form of collectivism will manifest. Interest and identity groups would seem to be natural and nearly impossible to suppress. The key thing would seem to be ensuring that the freedom the individual is not disregarded for the sake of any collective interest.

Actually... isn't that a gross under estimation of the true death toll numbers?
