Thirty years ago, “Socialism” collapsed in utter disgrace. What lies behind the seeming resurgence in C21? (Apart from Alinsky style “community organisers” beavering away, Frankfurt School “Critical theory” and linked “Deconstructionism,” all tied to the smear that those who seriously challenge Marxist notions and linked policy agendas are crypto-fascists at best?)
Here is a Prager U video discussion with Ms Candace Owen:
(Here’s hoping it does not get mysteriously deplatformed.)
I again point to a framework for understanding political dynamics:
. . . thus, a re-thinking on political spectra:
With a warning on Red Guards:
Let me add (July 31), given the comment by BR on a victim of a Stalinist show trial, a telegram from Albert Einstein on the behalf of the judicially murdered Czech politician, lawyer and patriot, Milada Horáková (née Králová, 25 December 1901 – 27 June 1950), pleading fruitlessly for her life after a Stalinist show trial:
Let me further add, from how Wikipedia is forced to admit the truth:
Milada Horáková (née Králová, 25 December 1901 – 27 June 1950) was a Czech politician and a member of underground resistance movement during World War II. She was a victim of judicial murder committed by the communist party on fabricated charges of conspiracy and treason. Many prominent figures in the West, including Albert Einstein and Winston Churchill, petitioned for her life.
She was executed at Prague’s Pankrác Prison using a primitive variant of execution by hanging. She died after being strangled for more than 13 minutes. Her remains were never found.
The verdict of her trial was annulled in 1968, and she was fully rehabilitated in the 1990s and posthumously received the Order of Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk (1st Class) and Order of the White Double Cross (1st Class).
U/D, Aug 2: Here is a reaction to a Twitter discussion of a Bible burning incident in front of the Court House in Portland, Oregon [as is discussed below]:
In reply, let us note first that already, the Church in Lafayette Park, across from the White House was targetted for arson and statues of Christian saints have also been targetted, this is not isolated. This comment in the same discussion, sadly, has a point about evading responsibility:
To correct the slander that Christians are in effect Nazis, let us next throw a spotlight on the Anti-Christ blasphemy of Nazism, seen in this Nazi poster that echoes and blasphemously twists Jesus’ baptism and the descent of the Spirit in the form of a dove of peace, not a demonic bomber-bird as the political messiah leads an army of the deluded . . . while carrying a banner based on what, visually, is also a twisted, broken cross (never overlook the suggestions- by- symbol of the wicked):
(The truth is, it is easily shown that Nazism and Fascism were of the same Left that has been identifiable for over 200 years. Similarly, that Hitler was anti-Christ, not Christian. Note here, the theses of the 1934 Barmen Declaration. Yes, in the long history of Christianity-influenced civilisation there have been too many shameful moments, but Nazism is not one of them and it is utterly wicked, slanderous hate speech to project Nazism as the defining essence of “Conservative” Christianity. That this is so commonly done almost as a matter of course shows the horrible rot at work in our civilisation.)
We need to seriously reconsider where we are taking our civilisation:
Trying to recover from having fallen over a cliff is very hard to do. END
