Marxism is a political philosophy developed by Prussian (German) philosopher Karl Marx that focuses on class struggle and various ways to ensure “equality of outcome for all people”. Marxian analysis have various schools of thought, but the basic idea is that the ruling class in any nation has historically oppressed the lower classes, and thus social revolution is needed to create a classless, homogeneous society. The purported goal of Marxism is a government-run utopia in which the needs of each individual are always provided for.
For the Marxist philosophy there is no room for private property, competition, merit system, freedom of religion and ultimately freedom of thought. Marxism is, at heart, an atheistic philosophy with no room for belief in G-d. These ideas seized the minds and hearts of millions of young people around the world but especially on the West. The vast majority of the young generation believe in socialism. They naively believe in a benevolent state that will “create” jobs and resolve all the problems. Evil “will just disappear” as a result of the”paradise” create by the government !! They believe powerful men, “our great socialist leaders” will remain righteous and pure making heaven to come down to earth (they don’t believe in heaven but hey….).
Socialism never worked and only caused poverty, corruption, chaos and bloody useless revolution (usually they have no idea what to do after they destroy everything). In many cases, a complete collapse of society happens afterwards. The most classical example is the french revolution. Socialism will persecute, torture and kill anyone who oppose the total state control and its corruption. History is on the records to prove but nobody care.
In times of a global pandemic the corruption of human heart was revealed in multiple levels. It reveals how corrupt politicians and state officials are. The so called protests of Marxists in the United States and other places reminded me of a classic novel called “The animal farm”. I bet the vast majority socialist young college students ever heard of it, let alone read it.
Animal Farm is an allegorical novella by George Orwell, first published in England on 17 August 1945. The book tells the story of a group of farm animals who rebel against their human farmer, hoping to create a society where the animals can be equal, free, and happy. Ultimately, however, the rebellion is betrayed, and the farm ends up in a state as bad as it was before, under the dictatorship of a pig named Napoleon.
This is exactly what socialism does. The pigs become like the head of corrupt communist parties betraying all the revolutionary promises. The old dark human heart never fails. But isn’t China capitalist? oh well..the “Chinese pigs” long ago learned that, if no socialists are capable to run a small bakery, imagine entire economies. So they just decided to manage the “free market” under its communist dictatorship. The oppression of communist regimes over their people is way worse compared to the democratic societies injustices and failures.
But the point I’m trying to make is that socialist principles are now rooted deep enough in the West to put western societies in serious danger. The identity politics and “racial tensions” on the headline news are just examples of toxic fruits of the poisonous Marxist tree.
Another fruit of that tree is their cult-mentality. It is built over a conspiracy theory. impermeability to fact. Conspiracies have a built-in explanation for their manifold contradictions: Anyone who questions the conspiratorial socialist worldview is a member of the oppressor class. You see that cult mentality in American or British socialist professors waging war against Israel and the USA. They are in a crusade against the “oppressors”. They have a “messianic mission to redeem the world”. And in order to do that they will do anything. The means justify the end. That is why they are silent when the Chinese or North Koreans commit crimes against humanity and all forms of atrocities.
But wait ! Weren’t the pigs the greatest heroes? Weren’t they so just and benevolent?
This anti-intellectual scholarship on the West is another ally on eroding the Judeo-Christian pillars where the Western democracies were built upon. Let’s not forget Globalism. Many argue that Marx has some claim to the status of the first major globalist. The view of globalism is often used by socialists as a tool to advance their own agendas. It is a mess!
We are now experiencing the first generation of young American and European leaders (congressmen, mayors, senators , governors etc) who were indoctrinated by Marxism and Globalism. They are far left revolutionaries. They believe in their role as Messiahs. They have the divine and pure mission to “purge” the infidels and ultimately destroy the Western system.
The Biblical Scriptures tell us what is going to happen next. And the story will not end as the classic novella by George Orwell. The pigs and their leader will temporarily prevail and secure power globally. But things won’t go back to as it was before. G-d Himself will have to intervene and show mankind that harmony and Justice will come only through Him and His Messiah.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!
