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).

Is Russian economy are success?what kind of policy towards Russia USA has to undertake today ? What candidate in 2008 will be capable to deal with Russia properly?

Is Russian economy are success

I am answering on very interesting posting by Dr Bulldog ( read the posting) :“In a Capitalist Democratic economy, the President is rarely responsible for the success or failure of the country’s market economy, as the citizens are the primary motivating force behind the economy (even though the politicians would have you believe otherwise when they are running for office). However, in a Totalitarian Society, by definition the Leader and his co-horts are active participants in that country’s economic gains and losses. “

I do agree with that but I think if you know that ” Putin is in the process of consolidating power in Russia” we have to keep in mind that ;

1. it is easier for ruler to manage totalitarian state than democracy so you do not have to be a genius to rule economy by totalitarian means , however it is super intellectual task to manage economy of democratic state. So I would say it is apple and oranges we cannot compare both

2. Putin was the one who managed transition from democracy to totalitarism . And it is a will of Russian people by the way to be economically safe if even democracy has to abandoned. So his economic success is a price for lost democracy. May be it is a fair price, may be he was right to do what he did but you cannot judge him on economic achievement only, you have take in consideration the price he paid for these achievement and namely making the Russia a totalitarian state one more time again

3. I am not sure that we understand each other talking about economic success . Russia is the only country in the world which

3.1. 3 times during 20th century started new state

3.2. survived 2000% ( two thousands %) inflation during last 2 decades,

3.3.declared default and still has issues with paying Russian tsar debts.

So, with taking that democracy in Russia was traded in economic prosperity ,that Russia today is a totalitarian state , that totalitarian economy is easy to manage ,is what happening economically in Russia really a success?

It is surviving but it still has economy about of half of Italian economy . With all its treasurers like oil and gas and nickel and …. many other things in the soil it still less than Italy economically???? With sacrificed democracy for the sake of order and prosperity it still what it is? I think for Russians themselves it will be humiliating to call it success.

4. The USA in part is responsible for Russian lost democracy : I think neglecting Russia after collapse of USSR was a mistake equal and similar to neglecting Afghanistan after kicking soviets out of Afghanistan. In one case we got Taliban and bin laden as liability for neglect in another we got Mr. Putin who is essentially Russian Taliban. ) In the early 90s late 80s perception of US was very favorable in Russia until “Gore/ Chernomirdin” commission under supervision of Al Gore started pump blindly money into Russian economy ( read mafia) , until US bombed Belgrade and choose to support every single anti Russian move of former Russian satellites.

I guess the right question is: knowing what we know about Russia what kind of policy towards Russia USA has to undertake today ? What candidate in 2008 will be capable to deal with Russia properly?

Russia is the best friend of Hamas !!We will see very soon how Hamas and Russia together will rule the world !!!

It is a common fact that Russia’s ” position on Hamas is different from that of the United States and Western Europe,” (source) at least it is what Putin said, speaking back then at the annual news conference in the Kremlin in 2006. Knowing that Putin owns Russia there is no reason do doubt that what Putin thinks is what Russia does. So, knowing that “the Russian Foreign Ministry has never regarded Hamas as a terrorist organization. ” (source) it was not a big surprise that Russians are thinking that Hamas is entitled for Russian help . Why ? Because!!!

Officially it is because these Russians are thinking that “the ‘divide and conquer policy’ is not helping to solve the conflict,” ( source )

But is it not precisely what Russia is doing ? Dividing and conquering ? Supporting terrorists in order to sell more weapons ??? Russia without war is like France without fashion . So Russians are trying to support ANY war, especially if it is any chance to kill Jews ( historically it is a very honorable activity in Russia) and to make a damage to the USA (Putin needs an enemy to maintain his dictatorship after all)

According to Russian officials they still “ recognize President Abbas and the government he has formed,” but in the same time they ” cannot ignore the fact that more than half of the seats in the legitimately elected parliament belong to Hamas.”(source)

 

So what? According to Russians by winning the elections Hamas got a mandate to kill Fattah?

In any way , since when Russians are so respectful to a parliament ? Russians successfully did shoot its own parliament using tanks in 1994. Today they did reverse their sympathy and they are essentially legitimizing the killing of a presidents’ people by parliament ?

Russians really have a very twisted logic : according to Russia blog ( see the source at http://www.russiablog.org/2006/02/why_putin_invites_hamas_to_mos.php ) “The Russian part of the global war that touches everyone, including Americans, never gets reported in any depth. Maybe that’s why the Westerners have a difficult time understanding why Putin has invited Hamas leaders to Moscow.”

So, help me understand, the presumable failure of Americans to recognize the input of Russians in the war on terror did force Russians ….to support terror? Very creative !!!

But you just wait, the guy just claimed that Russia owns ….”the North Pole – and all its gas, oil, and diamonds” read it !!!

Believe me it is just a beginning!!! We will see very soon how Hamas and Russia together will rule the world !!!
