The Ultimate Socialist Government
Socialism has a stigma attached to its form of governing. Socialism has been tainted by people like Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin, Adolf Hitler and Julius Nyerere. People, today, link Socialism to these bad men. Even though Socialism has a bad reputation, there is a movement today in America advocating for a Socialist democracy. There will eventually be a True Socialist government hat will govern the entire world peacefully. This government will not need to use brute force or keep its workers in line.
Socialism, stemming from the early Christian Church to the modern view of Socialism, has changed quite a bit. The concept of Socialism, as we view it today, derives from the thoughts and concepts of Karl Marks and Friedrich Engels. Marx and Engels together coined the frieze "Marxism". Marxism is a system of governing that is primarily concentrated on philosophy, social economics,theoretical works and politics.
"Under Marxism, outdated class structures were supposed to be overthrown by force (revolution) instead of being replaced through patient modification. It held that as capitalism has succeeded feudalism, it too will be removed by a dictatorship of the workers (proletariat) called socialism, followed quickly and inevitably by a classless society which governs itself without a governing class or structure.” (businessdictionary.com)
Early Church History
During the first century, Christians gathered in homes to worship and praise Jesus Christ. Many Christians sold their personal belongings and gave all their money to the Church so they could live together in such homes. The church then used the money to support these homes. The concept of living together and supporting one another without selfish gain followed Jesus Christ’s teachings.
The Book of Acts in the Bible discusses what took place in the communal Christian homes: "And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles. And all who believed were together and had all things in common. And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favor with all the people" (Act 2:42-47 ESV)
Christian communal living thrived for only a short time though. Christians in the communal homes became tired of giving so much money, time,and effort to their communal homes though . After a while, the Communal Christians dispersed and moved back into separate homes.

Attempts at Socialism
There have been many attempts at building and maintaining a socialist government. One of the best attempts at building such a government, and keeping it that way, was the Tanganyika African Union in the late 1960's. In 1967, Julius Nyerere took power of the Tanzania British colony in South Africa. After Nyerere gained control, all the people of Tanzania worked in harmony to support the new president’s vision of an ultimate socialist government. The Tanzanian workers did not mind, at first, working hard for heir new president, while receiving very little in return. But eventually, the people of Tanzania grew weary of the notion and rebelled against Nyerere and his form of governing. The Tanzanians were met with a strong hand from the government in return, and were forced into labor for their rebellious acts. Shortly after, Nyerere ended up changing his political view to Communism.
The main contributor in polluting Socialism was Vladimir Lenin. Lenin was not content with the Marxist Socialist philosophy so he invented Leninism. Lenin put in his own ideas along with the Marxism to form Leninism. Leninism quickly became the Soviet Union's model for governing, when Vladimir Lenin came to power in 1917. “Lenin called for a classless society in which all means of production would be commonly owned. Unlike some Marxists, however, Lenin stressed bold, revolutionary action and insisted that a strong Communist party would be needed in a Marxist nation to direct the efforts of the workers.” (dictionary.com)
Bernie Sanders for President 2020!
In 2016, the United States surprisingly took a liking to the concept of a Socialist Democracy. Even though Socialism has had a bad track record throughout history, the Democratic candidate for Presidency that year, Bernie Sanders, was promising to implement a Socialist Democracy in the U.S.. The Democrats never considered implementing Socialism with Democracy until Sanders stepped up for candidacy. Many Americans were eating up Bernie Sanders' words that year. The Democrats were tired of how the U.S. Government was treating them.
Americans were tired of how the Republicans and the Democrats are handling the affairs of their Government, and wanted change. Even though Bernie Sanders was really in an Independent Party, he was offered to represent the Democratic Party in the United Sates Presidential Election that year. Sanders ended up making it to the Primary Election, ballet he did not win the Democratic spot for the final two Presidential Candidacies . He is running for Presidency again in 2020.
If Bernie Sanders would become President of the United States, the Upper-Class citizens in the U.S. would have gotten hit the hardest financially, and would have made a huge deal about it . The American Middle-Class would have gotten tired of not getting paid enough for their work.The Lower-Class would have absolutely loved the new president, because he would have provided excellent healthcare for them, and because a big stimulus package would be going their way - courtesy of the Upper and Middle Class Americans! A train-wreck would have soon followed.
" The whole earth marveled as they followed the beast. And they worshiped the dragon, for he had given his authority to the beast, and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast, and who can fight against it?” And the beast was given a mouth uttering haughty and blasphemous words, and it was allowed to exercise authority for forty-two months. It opened its mouth to utter blasphemies against God, blaspheming his name and his dwelling, that is...(Rev 13:3-7)— The Apostle John
Socialist New World Order
There will eventually be a new Government called the New World Order. The Government will formed after catastrophic disaster that will occur during the beginning of The Great Tribulation. The New World Order will elect a certain businessman to lead them. The businessman will be the one who will bring peace to the world after the catastrophe.
The businessman, Anti-Christ, will develop the New World Order into a Socialist Democracy for the first three and a half years. But after that, the Anti-Christ will turn the New World Order into the most extreme form of Communism that will have ever existed.
The Anti-Christ,The Beast, is prophesied in the Book of Revelation of the Bible: "The whole earth marveled as they followed the beast. And they worshiped the dragon, for he had given his authority to the beast, and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast, and who can fight against it?” And the beast was given a mouth uttering haughty and blasphemous words, and it was allowed to exercise authority for forty-two months. It opened its mouth to utter blasphemies against God, blaspheming his name and his dwelling, that is, those who dwell in heaven. Also, it was allowed to make war on the saints and to conquer them." (Rev 13:3-7 ESV)
Jesus Christ will return from Heaven to Earth again at the end of The Great Tribulation. When Christ's returns, He will put an end to the Anti-Christ and his Communist New World Order. After the destruction of the New World Order, Christ will implement a new Wold Government. Jesus Christ's World Government will be Theocratic. Christ's reign as king of the world will be one thousand years. (Rev 20:1-6). Christ's Theocratic government will be Socialist in its truest form. All the workers will work for Jesus Christ and will not think about themselves. There will be no need for rebelling against Jesus and his Theocratic government. All the workers will be in unison with Jesus Christ and His vision – which is God’s vision!
