Socialism is the law that commits the crime that law is supposed to prevent–theft. It is a “lower stage of communism” according to Karl Marx. Its underlying principle is: “from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.” That is a violation of Natural Law, where just governments are instituted to protect the individual’s God given unalienable Rights.
Socialism and freedom are mutually exclusive: they do not mix, since socialism is destructive to individual freedom. It is like the bait on the hook, that glistens with freebees, yet it inexorably reels in society to Communism, since even democratic socialism empowers government to take and redistribute Rights, Privilege, and Property. Lord Acton has said: “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.”
Many a nation has fallen by the people’s socialistic envy for that which another has. Unashamedly revolutionaries within their own countries have displayed their raised fist in the air signifying their commitment to Communism, which included violence to accomplish their takeover. Sadly at the Super Bowl’s debased halftime performance, the performers raised their fist in the air, just like other Communists have done with their Red Flag bannered.
All people are not endowed by our Creator with equal abilities and drives. Nor do we have the equality of moms and dads in love raising children. However, we have our Creator’s Gospel in the Bible, to answer the issues of life.
“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banners openly against the city. But the traitor moves among those within the gates freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears no traitor: he speaks in the accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their garments, and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation: he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city: he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist;” attributed to Marcus Cicero (Rome).
When election time comes for the Christians to the Atheists, we will not be innocent if we betray America’s foundation on the Laws of Nature, which includes God’s Moral Law, with our Creator giving Life, and the Rights to Liberty (freedom within the bounds of God’s Moral Law) and Property to sustain it, for: man’s Socialism of redistributing Rights, Privilege, and Property; to equalize outcomes.
Socialism is treason to freedom. It is the death of your individual freedom.
Beware of the traitors within the gates!
