Critical Thinking Skills:

Difference between Communism and Fascism

Communism,  Socialism, Fascism = Tyranny

Excerpt from Birthright, Critical Thinking: Defining Communism, Socialism, and Fascism

Chapter 53—At the Memorial

                Darcy Lipscomb makes the following comment to her father: “Don’t you know that Nazism is the German word for National Socialism? Nazism, socialism, communism, fascism—they’re all the same. You know, the old tyranny thing—controlling people’s lives and stifling freedom of speech …”

Comment: In today’s society, many people think that Nazism (or fascism) is the opposite of socialism. This is incorrect. Don’t allow yourself to be confused. Darcy is right. These four “isms” are simply variations of the same thing: Tyranny

Communism and socialism—all property and businesses are owned and controlled by a large bureaucratic government; the government controls the nation’s economy. Karl Marx, founder of communism, encouraged war between the rich and poor, or “class warfare”.

                Fascism (formerly Nazism)—although big businesses may be owned by individuals, they are controlled by the government, which is led by a strong dictator. In addition to class warfare, fascism includes racial strife. Fascist tyrants enforce their demands with groups of bullies, which under Nazism were called the Gestapo. Islam is a type of fascism, because they hate Jews and Christians, and their Shariah Law, which stifles freedom, is the opposite of our Constitution.

                All these “isms” engage in thought control, stifling freedom of speech, press, and religion, and persecuting dissenters, to the point of imprisonment or death. In Birthright, these tyrannical systems are called the Order of Kohor. As you study current events, history, and foreign affairs, just keep it simple by remembering that all these systems enforce their ideology with the sword, or violence.

‘Communism for Kids’ Turns Deadly Ideology Into a Fairy Tale

Average review rating of 123 reviews on Amazon: 2 stars

For behold, they do study at this time that they may destroy the liberty of thy people. ~Alma 8:17

Jarrett Stepman

Heritage Foundation Daily Signal

In order to make the deadliest ideology of the 20th century palatable to young Americans, “Communism for Kids” is coming to a bookstore near you.

This newly released book from MIT Press “proposes a different kind of communism, one that is true to its ideals and free from authoritarianism.”

The death toll from communist regimes in the 20th century is well-documented. One study found that more people were killed under communism than homicide and genocide combined, and only 9 million more people were killed in World War I and World War II combined than under governments of this ideology.

Another study showed how the mass killings of civilians by their own governments took an immediate nosedive after the collapse of the Soviet Union and international communism.

According to the Amazon synopsis, the book weaves a fairy tale of “jealous princesses, fancy swords, displaced peasants, mean bosses, and tired workers.”

It is bewildering why MIT Press would publish a book that cutesies up the political creed that gave the world Joseph Stalin, Mao Zedong, Fidel Castro, and many more of the world’s most prolific mass murderers. None of these brutal dictators are mentioned in the book, according to The Washington Free Beacon.

Communism seemingly gets a pass to be re-imagined as a sweet fable while it’s inconceivable that a book called “Fascism for Kids” would ever be printed by a reputable publisher. (Fascism is very similar to communism, with a slightly different label. ~C.D.)

Marion Smith of the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation wrote, according to The Washington Free Beacon:

While I can imagine a book so titled that would make a valuable contribution to a reader’s understanding of the truth about communism, the book MIT Press published is not it. ‘Communism for Kids’ whitewashes and infantilizes ideas that, when put into action, have cost more than 100 million lives.

This odd attempt to get kids into communism is unlikely to spawn a new generation of true believers on its own, but it does highlight the growing problem for younger Americans who are generally clueless about even recent history.

As The Daily Signal previously reported, a study from the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation found that millennials, in particular, are stunningly ignorant about what occurred under the Soviet Union and other communist regimes just a generation ago.

Liberal Lies—

One-third of millennials surveyed actually believe that more people were killed under former President George W. Bush than under Soviet dictator Stalin.

If one truly wants to teach young Americans what communism is really about, it would be better to hand them a copy of the classic “Animal Farm,” by George Orwell.

The book is an allegory—using farm animals as stand-ins—about the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia a century ago. The revolutionary promise of “all animals are equal” is used to overthrow farmers, but quickly turns into a new, even more oppressive tyranny under animal overlords

A reign of forced labor, intimidation, and terror puts the animals under the thumb of their new masters—their ideals used to prop up an all-powerful regime. The refashioned creed becomes “all animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.” In the end, human, or rather “animal,” nature proved to be more powerful than any ideology.

As the Roman poet Horace once said: “You can drive out nature with a pitchfork, but she will ever hurry back.”

This lesson from Orwell would be a much better way to teach young people about destructive ideology than a fanciful account of how “true” communism—minus the mean authoritarian stuff and mass murder—would be truly grand.

Under communism, tyranny is a feature, not a bug.

Defining Moment: Biblical Worldview vs. Political Correctness

Defining Moment: Biblical Worldview

First, Political Correctness is what the Biblical Worldview is NOT.

procrustesbedLike Procrustes, the legendary Greek robber who would stretch or cut off the legs of his prisoners to make them fit his bed, tyrants must stretch or cut out the TRUTH to fit the confines of their ideology.

 

The Origins of Political Correctness

 

William Lind

All ideologies are totalitarian because the essence of an ideology … is to take some philosophy and say on the basis of this philosophy certain things must be true—[for example,] such as the whole of the history of our culture is the history of the oppression of women.

Since reality contradicts that, reality must be forbidden.

PC-TruthIt must become forbidden to acknowledge the reality of our history. People must be forced to live a lie, and since people are naturally reluctant to live a lie, they naturally use their ears and eyes to look out and say, “Wait a minute. This isn’t true. I can see it isn’t true,” the power of the state must be put behind the demand to live a lie. That is why ideology invariably creates a totalitarian state.

 

The person who originated political correctness was Mao Zedong, the Chinese communist leader with the dreadful distinction of having caused more deaths than any person in human history—50 to 70 million, more than Stalin and Hitler combined.

Mao wrote down his rules for thought control in what was known as the “Little Red Book”.

 

biblical-worldview2-christianThe Biblical Worldview

Contrast Mao’s book, reportedly the second most widely printed book in history, with the Bible—the most widely printed and read book in history. Both books point to a “correct way” of thinking, speaking, believing, and behaving. But unlike Marxism and other bizarre ideologies that must be superimposed on us from the outside and thereby violate our minds and souls, the Bible’s fundamental principles do not conflict with conscience and human nature. ~David Kupelian

 

The Biblical Worldview is summed up in the terse, absolute, and unequivocal truth of the Ten Commandments, given to Moses many centuries ago, and still true and right today.

 

Moses and 10 cropThe Ten Commandments

  1. Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
  2. Thou shalt not make to thyself any graven images.
  3. Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain.
  4. Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.
  5. Honour thy father and thy mother.
  6. Thou shalt not kill.
  7. Thou shalt not commit adultery.
  8. Thou shalt not steal.
  9. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.
  10. Thou shalt not covet.

 

Tyrants cannot tolerate the first commandment, because they must play god themselves.

The Tenth Commandment against Envy

churchill-on-socialismThe tenth commandment at first glance seems to be the last and least of the ten, because it describes a thought, not an action. However, thought precedes action, does it not? And what kinds of actions does envy lead to?

Envy is the cornerstone of the socialist, fascist or communist philosophy. Winston Churchill described socialism as the “gospel of envy.”

 

 

People and nations who abide by the Ten Commandments enjoy more peace, happiness, and liberty than do any others. Yes, the Judeo-Christian culture happy-people-bibleis the best of all cultures, because of these aforementioned fruits. This is an unchangeable truth that tyrants cannot tolerate.

Thus we see that tyrants employ “Political Correctness”. They do not hesitate to lie, steal, and kill in order to enforce their “gospel of envy,” and to stamp out the truth that threatens their regime.
