socialism : between helplessness and fascism

Are you going to vote for one of socialist candidates from the Democratic list? Al Gore, John Edwards, Obama, Clinton, Kucinich etc?

Then keep in mind that socialism will bring you either to helplessness, as western European socialist countries are today, or to fascism/communism, as Germany and Russia were.

Socialism in western Europe was sponsored and protected by capitalism. European socialism is alive and relatively well only because capitalist USA did protect it for decades from the USSR. If USA will go socialist, who will protect the USA? France?

Self-sustainable Socialism has to be militaristic by itself. Examples : USSR and Nazi Germany. Yes, Nazi Germany was a socialist country. Those who do not believe that it was, I challenge you to read below the articles from the program of NSDAP – National Socialist German Workers Party (SOCIALIST WORKERS PARTY!!! ) and to tell which one from listed below articles are not suitable for today’s Democratic party platform.

• That all unearned income, and all income that does not arise from work, be abolished.
• The first duty of every citizen must be to work mentally or physically. No individual shall do any work that offends against the interest of the community to the benefit of all.
• Since every war imposes on the people fearful sacrifices in blood and treasure, all personal profit arising from the war must be regarded as treason to the people We therefore demand the total confiscation of all war profits.
• We demand the nationalization of all trusts.
• We demand profit-sharing in large industries
• We demand a generous increase in old-age pensions.
• We demand the creation and maintenance of a sound middle-class, the immediate communalization of large stores which will be rented cheaply to small tradespeople, and the strongest consideration must be given to ensure that small traders shall deliver the supplies needed by the State, the provinces and municipalities.
• The State has the duty to help raise the standard of national health by providing maternity welfare centers, by prohibiting juvenile labor, by increasing physical fitness through the introduction of compulsory games and gymnastics, and by the greatest possible encouragement of associations concerned with the physical education of the young.”

So, if we are going to vote socialist, we either will be helpless and defenseless like Europe today, or militaristic as Germany and Russia were yesterday (and like Russia under Putin still is).

  1. I have never been a big fan of Socialism. I believe it takes away our dreams and therefore, our drive to excel. Why would anyone want to put in the extra time and effort needed to succeed, only to have to government control the profits?

    Why would anyone work harder than his neighbor, if the neighbor will be getting a chunk of the benefits while sliding thru?

    I believe the entire nation would slip into mediocrity, as no one would want to do more than their share of the work.

    As it now stands in a Capitalistic country, if I want a new car, I will put in more time and work the extra needed to gain a larger pay. Or I might develop a project on the side, perhaps work on an inventive idea to gain monetarily.

    The key being, extra work equal extra benefits. Capitalism works for those willing to exert themselves.

    Several years ago I worked for a meager wage and tips. If I made good tips we ate well. If I didn’t make much on the tips we ate beans and rice. At that time I could have whined about how big businesses were making millions, but instead I chose to educate myself and make more money myself.

    In this country, the choice is ours. Do we want to slide along at the poverty level, or do we want to WORK our way up to a life of more comforts?

    Pride in one’s self is very important. I do not see the Socialist way of life offering this.

  2. Thank you for your comment cavmom:
    you are absolutely correct in your observations. I saw what socialism is . I grew up in the USSR and i can assure you that majority of our homegrown socialists in the USA have no idea what they are talking about. They have a very strange perception that socialism will be just like a capitalism but where everybody will be safe , secure and happy. I think a field trip in North Kore or Cuba would help to get real.
    Our socialists are conveniently forgetting that socialism as implemented concept incarnated into two most bloody state forms : communism and fascism.
    How one can be a proponent of ideology which historically proved itself just not doable? And do not give me an example of Canda or France with did not have to defend themselves and therefore had a luxury to think only about social programs. Or example of Sweden which entire prosperity is built on being neutral to Nazi.
    all historical examples of socialism are either militaristic monsters or helpless countries relying on other countries in defense .
