Socialism by any other name (Part 3) – Commentary by Joan Hough
Part 3 of a 3 part series

Socialism by any other name Part 1 - Joan Hough
Socialism by any other name Part 2 - Joan Hough

"...a wise and frugal Government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government."
--Thomas Jefferson, First Inaugural Address, March 4, 1801

"Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master."
--George Washington

A ROSE BY ANY OTHER NAME---Marxism, Communism, Socialism, Fascism, Nazism—are identical quintuplets—--they are all socialist forms of government with later added, equally identical, twists. They all specialize in feeding the people lies. Sops and sugar tits are thrown to the populace regularly while the leaders and their henchmen rake in the wealth and live high on the hog.

Marxism’s methods, often said to be the bloodiest, in actuality, are not even that. Communism was and is just as bloody. Dictatorship is disguised in the governments bearing any of these “ism” names- at least in the beginning—--just as it was disguised in Abe Lincoln’s Republican-controlled government which placed Southern Americans under total control, totally in bondage, for almost a dozen years following the conclusion of the invasion by Republican troops into the sovereign, constitutionally legally seceded from the union, separate nation by name of the Confederate States of America...(If your history teacher knew the truth about the South, he would have taught you that Lincoln and his Republicans muzzled the speech of Southerners throughout those dozen years. People fear to talk when threatened with prison and, most especially so, when no trial by jury is allowed.)

Conner (Frank Conner -- The South Under Seige) in his discussion of Socialism in Germany, Italy and Russia, reminds us that Socialism had a partner in Benito Mussolini, a passionate Marxist. After Benito was expelled from the Socialist party of Italy, he organized a similar one, naming it “the Fascist Party”. His socialism party took control of Italy in 1922 and controlled every activity of the nation’s economy and its citizens. He cleverly made illegal the other similar socialist/communist parties, leaving in place only his own.

Hitler’s party, the National SOCIALIST German Worker’s Party, controlled all activities, economical and public, just as did the Communist party in Russia. Hitler, also, eliminated competitive socialist/communist parties in his nation and all nations he came to control.

Socialists’ propagandized goals are to redistribute and make wealth, power, and social status identical for all ethnic groups. Its true goals, however, are designed to centralize power and wealth in the “superior-elitist” members of the nation--—the leaders and their favorites. [goals now evident in many, many leaders in our present “Democracy.”] According to Conner, the strength of socialism in government can be measured by how much the people are taxed--—how many limitations are placed on ownership of private property, and how much freedom citizens are allowed in their use of their private property.

Americans are said to work from January to May for the total amount of money they owe in annual taxes. "Tax Freedom Day" is actually April 30th for 2006. The amount of land to be, forcibly, taken from private individuals in order to build the dreaded NAFTA highway has not yet been announced.)

A Republic is based on the idea that adults, reasonably educated and possessing at least a modicum of morality are able to manage their own affairs with little government interference. This translates, according to Conner, into fewer laws more freedom for each person, and a vastly better economy and society.

In Totalitarian Socialism, Conner points out, there exists the belief that adult citizens are too incompetent to plan and conduct their own affairs, no matter the nature of those affairs. Even ordinary activities of each citizen and every business must be controlled by the government’s brilliant planners and social engineers. [[No doubt the very act of getting elected (by hook or by crook, by dead man’s ballots or by stolen ballot boxes filled with uncounted votes) endows all politicians with superior intellectual abilities.]

Government allows the citizens a plentitude of bread and circuses, sex and booze. Hedonism is encouraged because it distracts citizens from recognizing the lockstep conformity forced upon them by their all powerful controllers, the makers of the Law who are, also, the enforcers of the Law and the very politicians who ARE the Law. [It is amazing how Conservative aspirants for public office change with lightning swiftness from “servants of the people” to controllers, once they breathe the fumes of the Potomac.]

Southerners have always placed high value on a limited representative government in a Republic, as defined by the Articles of Confederation, the Bill of Rights and the U.S. Constitution. Southerners have believed in States’ rights—--in every state’s sovereignty in existence even before the Articles of Confederation were signed—--Rights well recognized and recorded in the treaty with the British after the War for American Independence. Southerners have always detested even the idea of an all powerful central/national government—--and especially, one referred to as a Democracy. Southerners know that words in use today, such as “democratic”, “moderate” and “neo-conservative” contain the same petals found in the ROSE OF SOCIALISM and can all blossom into Dictatorship just as it burst forth in other lands and just as it did in America during the administration of Abe Lincoln.

"Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny." --Thomas Jefferson

Southerners, with a few exceptions consisting of some holding elective offices, have forever believed in individual responsibility, less government, less law, less taxes, and less power concentrated in a central government located some place far from their own state and their own bodies. Because of this belief, Southerners were better able than most other Americans, to resist the hypnotic song of Central Government’s Sirens---Sirens whose melodies and lyrics bemused listeners into agreeing to give up the rights the nation’s founding fathers reserved to the states—--for example, to give up the rights of each state to control its U.S. Senators and, holding them close, to make them spend their longer periods in office studying the Constitution, learning the correct workings of a Republic, serving the watch dogs for the states, guarding the rights of the states at the national level of Central government. The change from election of the U.S. Senators by individual state legislatures to a state-wide popular election of the senators was one giant step in the seizure of States’ rights by the Central government. This change allowed the grasping, greedy for power, Central Government, originally designed as a hand-maiden to the states to turn, rapidly, into the order-shouting Boss of the states and thus, the people surrendered most of their God-given rights.

It should be mentioned here that there are present day law suits underway in which plaintiffs are contending the 17th Amendment to the Constitution is illegal. It is undeniable that the amendment put another shot into the already bullet-riddled body of States’ Rights. States which voted for that amendment did so in response to the Congressional Sirens and the Central Government’s lying propagandists, little realizing that by replacing the states’ individual legislatures’ control over the States U.S. Senators via the election of the Senators in the acceptable method for a Republic, our government was switched to a completely Constitutionally illegal Democracy –the very type of government the founding fathers refused to establish because of its horrendous flaws.

Americans today, still have their ears tuned to the songs of the Sirens. As in their political past, the song sung by the Sirens is paid for, in one way or another, by an all powerful, Socialist Central Government which grabs the money out of the pockets of gullible tax payers --–literally plundering it from some mighty unwillingly citizens, who are not only incensed that they are forced to give up their money, but that it is wasted on socialist projects highly objectionable to most thinking citizens-- projects such as bridges that go next to nowhere and foreign aid to countries where the people hate America.

Our all-powerful Central Government continues to purvey its honeyed lies --–continues to gull the voters with seductive songs sung by highly paid sirens. Only in this place and time, the sirens are employed in the Communications media--- television, radio, newspapers, movies, etc. Because of their work, it continues to be difficult for listeners to avoid believing and obeying the desires of the government. The power of the Sirens must not be underestimated. It seems not all important which of America’s two major political parties are in power—both are in total agreement that the songs of Socialism must be heard throughout the land, from sea to shining sea. The message in these songs is not subliminal, but blatantly Socialistic—--easily recognized by all able to discern truth.

Sweet coupled airs we sing.
No lonely seafarer
Holds clear of entering
Our green mirror
(Odyssey, Book 12, 273-176)

Square in your ship’s path are Sirens,
crying beauty to bewitch men coasting by;
woe to the innocent who hears that sound!
He will not see his lady or his children
in joy, crowding about him, home from sea;
the Sirens will sing his mind away
on their sweet meadow lolling. There are bones
of dead men rotting in a pile beside them
and flayed skins shrivel around the spot.
Steer wide;
keep well to seaward; plug your oarsmen’s ears
with beeswax kneaded soft; none of the rest
should hear that song.
But if you wish to listen,
let the men tie you in the lugger, hand
and food, back to the mast,
lashed to the mast, so you may hear those harpies’ thrilling voices;
shout as you will, begging to be untied,
your crew must only twist more line around you
and keep their stroke up, till the singers fade.
(Odyssey: Book 12, 41-58)
