The socialist agenda
In the Black book of Communism it was reported that over 94 million people were murdered under communist rule. For a myriad of unjust reasons, the dictators of communist countries have starved their people to death, captured, tortured, and executed political prisoners, (for some out of shear paranoia), put their people to work in labor camps, and put to death religious leaders and their communities, all of which was for the greater good.
In it's short existence socialism, (the watered down version of communism,) has spread to many countries and continues to increase in influence throughout the world. As this faction is spoon fed to the American people in small doses it becomes a threat to our way of life.
Former leader of the Soviet Union Nikita Khrushchev requested to meet with the United States secretary of agriculture Ezra Taft Benson. Benson later became the president of the LDS church and gave several speeches both from the pulpit and in the political arena condemning the threat of communism which was creeping into American society.
In our day Benson's speeches might be regarded by the media as right wing conspiracy theories. Though in our parents era it would have been a severe turning point in our politics and our freedoms if they would have taken this threat lightly.
The economy of the United States continues to weaken as our politicians resolve the dilemmas of our debt by printing money, bailing out banks and car companies, and increasing taxes on the wealthy.
"We'll so weaken your economy until you fall like over ripe fruit into our hands." -Khrushchev
Redistribution of wealth
A recent survey was conducted by Republican students in colleges around America in which they asked their piers if they wouldn't mind giving up an "A" for a "C" if it were equally distributed to others who were struggling in their academics.
The result of course, was that the same people who assert that money earned by the rich should be equally distributed to the less fortunate, were unwilling to give up their hard earned high marks for the greater good to help out their fellow classmates.
To some it just doesn't seem fair that there are people in America who get the good life while others struggle to make ends meet. We see on television rich brats who go out and waste their parents money on expensive clothing that would otherwise feed an entire nation of starving people. The parents and the children have the idea continually embedded in their minds by television and the media that this is unjust.
It seems fair that everyone should get an equal share of resources, but the socialist government destroys the most sacred principle of charity by taking your hard earned money and divvying it out to the rest of the community. In this process free will as well as all property, food, and any other possessions are taken away and every piece of it belongs to the state. One can see how a dictator can easily arise from this total control by government as all of it's people are indebted to them.
"We'll keep feeding you small doses of socialism until you wake up and find that you already have communism." -Khrushchev.
An all too familiar yet unknown method of indoctrination that has befallen the unwitting people of America is social pessimism. Our nation has been spoon fed a high level of negativity by the folks in Hollywood. They consistently portray the family unit with a aggressive, disconnected drunken father, and an insane mother that abuses barbiturates. You get a glimpse of life through the eyes of a child who is persistent in trying to overcome his or her obstacles in life despite their prying and destructive, or otherwise ignorant parents.
You see the normal life of single parents who are divorced, being successful and happy on their own. You see adults cohabitating rather than saving themselves for marriage. We are fed dose after dose of situations where cohabitation proves beyond doubt that avoiding commitment is a factor not to be risked. They portray marriage as a relationship killer, and a binding institution which is nothing more than a dog and pony show to appease the extended family.
More recently we are given a dose of "reality" television chalked full of partying, sex, alcohol, and all the drama you can handle. Does this in any way inspire the viewers to increase their egos to phenomenal levels? Again we are sending people out into the workforce who expect to be treated like the king of the mountain, and when they get a dose of reality they flop and twitch in the all too common misconception that life is supposed to be fair. But fair to them means to be spoon fed everything.
Remember that the goal of communism is for the citizens to be completely reliant on the government. This means that it's biggest compitetion are institutions such as marraige, religion, and the core family unit. one does not have too look hard to see that there is a growing trend in America that devalues our most basic and long cherished traditions.
"I believe there are more instances of the abridgement of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations." -James Madison
In the scientific arena militant atheists such as Richard Dawkins seek out to embarrass, humiliate, and demean anyone who has any kind of belief in the existential. He popularizes the ideology that people who believe in God are not fit for the political arena, and should be treated as insane, or otherwise unintelligent irrational lunatics. Likewise he encourages other atheists to mock and degrade, those with religious convictions, and even accuses those who wish to rear their children in the love of their creator, as unfit parents and child abusers.
The accusation is always that religion has done the most damage in the world, however in it's uprising over the last one hundred years, atheist dominated countries under communism have murdered over 100 million people.
While it is sadly true that throughout history people have tried to kill one another under the guise of Christianity, that is not it's true intent and is opposite to it's nature. it is however the intent of the socialist ideology to mow down anyone who is in opposition to them. Partially because they fear no reprisal for their actions in this life or the next. Their driving force is to usurp power, and take control over the very thoughts and ideas that resonate in the human soul, to abolish the rules set in stone by the creator.
It is somewhat Ironic that those who wish to make a political statement by wearing the image of a notorious bloodthirsty killer, have no idea what that very person thought of his race and his lifestyle.
