I’ve given thought to how what I’m writing could get me in trouble someday. But I do not regret it. My parents are a bit wary, about what I’m writing, because of that. But… I do not regret it.

Lol, my parents are more concerned for my mental health than wary of the flack I’ll get for writing XD.

My family too fled a Communist nation, all they had was a fake telegram to get them over the border. It’s only by the grace of God that they succeeded, otherwise I would have never existed. My story makes a jab at Communism and Fascism, the government in it promotes ‘equality’ and ‘fairness’ and ‘peace for all’, all the while censoring media and promoting themselves as living gods to be worshipped.

That must’ve been a really harsh experience, I’m so glad your family made it out!

it literally breaks my heart seeing it get promoted everywhere. A family member (who by the way is alive because their family escaped Communism) once said to me ‘Gosh you know what Neasa! There’s no such thing as Communists anymore! They’re all GONE!’ Umm then what are China, North Korea, Venezuela and Cuba then HMMM? And what are People Before Profit aka the party of young Irish wannabe Socialists whinging about people owning their own houses and land, while at the same time living, thriving and surviving because of the free market and capitalism??? Jeepers I just can’t with people sometimes :'(

Right! And what about the self-proclaimed Marxist Black Lives Matter mobs and the New Left? Everything about Marxism undermines morality, democracy, pretty much every aspect of the American Constitution is torn apart by this belief. And China and North Korea don’t even get me started on those. But look at the key beliefs systematically it’s Satanic;
1. “People are not responsible for their own actions in society because they are trapped by a society that creates our “roles” and forces us into stereotypes.”
The belief that people shouldn’t own up to their problems and sins negates all sense of objective morality and especially any form of consensual or less consensual sex crimes because “as long as everybody’s fine with it what’s the problem?” There are already so-called “studies” that “affirm” “children are not harmed by porn and may even feel happy after looking at it”. Illegal porn is merely defined as a “photo of a real child” so dirty pictures are still legal, and rape is hardly even taken seriously anymore as if “he/she asked for it” or did something to incite it.
Any religion is at odds with this belief in “societal roles we must free ourselves from”. Any morality or personal responsibility hinders that “ideal” that there’s no right or wrong just groups of people against other groups and this nebulous “societal constraint”. After religion, family blocks their goals since most parents would at least try to teach children to do good and avoid bad but if everything’s “society’s fault” the mere thought that children should rein themselves in at all is tyrannical and destructive in a world where it’s not their fault just societal inhibitions. To quote actual Black Lives Matter statement;
“A. We build a space that affirms Black women and is free from sexism, misogyny, and environments in which men are centered
B. We practice empathy. We engage comrades with the intent to learn about and connect with their contexts.
C. We make our spaces family-friendly and enable parents to fully participate with their children. We dismantle the patriarchal practice that requires mothers to work “double shifts” so that they can mother in private even as they participate in public justice work.
D. We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and “villages” that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable.
E. We foster a queer-affirming network. When we gather, we do so with the intention of freeing ourselves from the tight grip of heteronormative thinking, or rather, the belief that all in the world are heterosexual (unless s/he or they disclose otherwise).”
Notice how all of those are comparative and assume that “everyone” other than their audience practices hate and discrimination. It precisely it exclusive of male, heterosexual or “Western” (read American founding principles). A Begins “defending” black women by attacking men. B Empathy defined “connect with their contexts”; identify with their situation and file them into a happy little group divided from the rest. Note it’s “their contexts” not their person, their identity, their beliefs anything. Just their experience. And “comrades”; implicitly excluding people who don’t agree with them. That ain’t empathy last I checked.
C again relies on dissing men and “fully participate with their children”? Not “spend more time with” or “raise their children” no; the idea is to treat children as a separate subgroup in this essentially to separate them from parents into “villages” so that the majority molds their beliefs and continue to foster a sense of dependence by forcing adults and children into the same set of rules. D very clearly states division, “disrupting” the family structure to “collectively” care for one another to the degree that “mothers, parents, and children are comfortable” note mothers get stated but not fathers and to the degree children are comfortable essentially means the government seizes the role of parent whenever they don’t like parents. And of course E pits LGBTQA against anyone who disagrees.
(I have a particular bone to pick with blm, I’m sure nobody would’ve guessed 😛 )
Oh! I never read the book but I have seen Animal Farm; it really demonstrated the consequences of Marxism persuasively.
…what was I talking about?
2. “From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.”
This rewards selfishness and laziness; there is no incentive to work and everything is carried on the backs of a couple people who actually work at best. It drags down the skilled the moral the frugal you don’t get the effort you put in you just get whatever the people in power give you. That negates all risk/reward factors and exponentially reduces input, creativity and individual talents. But the biggest dehumanizing effect this has is it completely overrides individual choices so that there’s only a mass nobody in power cares about, nobody in power sees people just cattle. In fact, the Covid virus originating in Communist China specifically targets the elderly and those with breathing disabilities; in essence targeting their weakest members to save money on welfare. This is exactly how insurance works and in fact any government agency.
Instead of equal pay for wildly different jobs, the American Constitution promotes “equal opportunity” so that anybody can go into business for themselves and try their own talents. Even though every person isn’t delegated equal resources the same set of laws apply to everyone (at least when American law isn’t ignored or degraded by political factions–which Washington was afraid of and specifically requested America not have different political parties…if I remember correctly). People have more of a chance to pull themselves out of poverty in a free economy without government inference except in absolutely necessary exceptions.
3. “Economic democracy”
If no people are in economic power but instead we follow the “one person, one vote” rule here it’s…quite frankly the height of human stupidity like asking a babysitter to make an executive choice on a multifaceted complex legal issue. For instance, if every person is able to vote on whether to provide doctors with–insert hyper specialized equipment here–or whether resources should provide specialized farming equipment instead, how many people will know

how to make an executive decision on that; you’d have to be a specialist in every field to even begin.
People tend not the see government money as finite because it spends and spend with absolute abandon as it steals through taxes, fees and inflation to maintain its delusions of grandeur. Individuals who have a price limit are gonna make better money decisions because they are vested in saving while increasing standard of living whereas government is completely unaffected by its spending but is vested in getting more money to increase personal paychecks.
So free enterprise promotes better spending while government interference provides the worst services it can get away with with the highest prices it can get away with. Communism completely destroys free enterprise so there are no competitors to government service so they can price as high as they want and continue to self-serve without providing anything.
4. “No capital should exist”
So all the money, private property, lives all belong to the government because capital does not cease to exist simply because no one dares assert ownership. The absolutely most common weapon Communist governments use–second perhaps to concentration camps–is famine. Because if no individual owns anything the government owns everything. And what, you think the government is this loving mom. Please, even real parents who love you can’t make your decisions for you constantly and still maintain your humanity as you grow.
So Communism gone, please. It’s one of the devil’s most seditious lies, the same way he tries to convince people he doesn’t exist.
