These children of wealth then reared children of narcissism. The kids today are the fruit of a plastic structured culture with no strength or resiliency All fall into a line of perfectly adjusted everlasting mediocrity. The psychiatric profession and drug manufacturers are enjoying incredible financial bounty as the neurotics, both parents and children, cannot adapt to a competitive society. Not everyone gets a ribbon.
One might be tempted to respond immediately that AOC has it backwards, that, in fact, capitalism is about freedom and socialism is about dictatorship. However, it is worth examining closely the precise words in which current socialists like AOC express their grandiose visions. For, AOC actually does not say that capitalism is a greedy irredeemable system. What she says is that capitalism is a greedy irredeemable system to her.
With Cultural Marxism having penetrated every facet of our society, the tentacles of communism have quietly seized control of virtually every structural institution in our country, including, most ominously, one of America’s major political parties and what has become that party’s willing propaganda arm, the anti-American mainstream media.
Not so long ago, there were groups of people who were provided with everything free. They were given food, shelter, clothing, education and medical care without charge. They were protected from violent crime. They never feared unemployment. They were provided with fairs, festivals, and other free entertainment. They owned nothing and by many accounts, were happy. They were called slaves.
Market-led economic growth has become irrelevant to Biden, if he ever respected it before, and he and his Marxist-Maoist staffers hold the Biden regime up to America as Her new benefactors, who embody the economy and will create new jobs for everyone, new industries even. But his orders and policies completely destroy carbon and fossil fuel industries.
Socialism is doomed to fail wherever it’s tried, because it is in eternal mortal conflict with the basic human instinct that those who work harder, educate themselves, employ their ingenuity and risk their capital have an inborn expectation to do significantly better than those who don’t. That is an immutable human trait that will never change.
America is not the world’s policeman or bodyguard. The US is subsidizing European socialism right now but must stop doing so as soon as is possible. The Europeans can defend themselves; doing so would be good for them and let us focus on the Chinese threat.
Make no mistake: it may appear that many in today’s Democratic Party are merely flirting with socialism, but communism itself is a natural progression. And if the outright embrace of socialism is not yet mainstream ideology for Democrats, it’s not far off.
