Description

The Green New Deal is being attacked by virtually all free-market-loving people and defended by the rising tide of Social Democrats. Are the concerns justified? Would a green new deal outlaw cow ownership or air travel, as some have suggested?

I think a better question to ask centers around our culture and what it means for so many people to want our economy to be centrally planned.

We have mountains of evidence from the past that give us insight into what this kind of control would bring, and today I want to try to connect some dots for you.

  • In the subject of physics, there is no such thing as “Einsteinism;” we do not worship Einstein as if he were a prophet for his contributions to physics. So is it correct to assume that these two words, Marxism and communism, are synonymous? Now, I am well aware that there are probably those who would kiss the ground Marx had walked on for his criticisms of capitalism, and may appropriately be considered then as “Marxists,” but is this also communism in its own right? I don’t know. I’m still trying to wrap my head around this… What do you guys think?

  • I was watching a comedy and these various communist quotes were mentioned by one of the characters. I tried to question these quotes but have been unable to ask myself the right questions. Some suggestions would be very much appreciated: “You’ve got to fight the system. You are falling victim to an oppressive bourgeois dictatorship which has been subjugating the masses and their struggle for dignity, equality and basic human rights.” “It’s a common excuse [it’s just family only] for the exclusion of the proletariat from the festivities of the capitalist middle-class elite.” “I was becoming of those bourgeoisie proletarians that need to exercise our right to self-expression in defiance of the ruling classes.” This quote was from a different comedy (3rd Rock from the Sun) but I still don’t know what question or questions I should be asking myself regarding this quote: “You’re an inspiration to all neo-Trotskyite anti-Stalinist Marxists.”
