What is Marxism? And why you should fear it.

Part Five

No one reads (or read) these books…

Internet/social media/selfie culture has all but obliterated the act of reading books. Namely the literary classics, historical biographies, and works of philosophy. The cautionary tales that warned time and time again of allowing envy and vice to run rampant, and thus control society. Here are a few famous quotes from books such as:

Brave New World –

• “Words can be like X-rays if you use them properly — they’ll go through anything. You read and you’re pierced.”
― Aldous HuxleyBrave New World
• “One believes things because one has been conditioned to believe them.”
― Aldous HuxleyBrave New World
• “But I don’t want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.”
― Aldous HuxleyBrave New World
• “Chronic remorse, as all the moralists are agreed, is a most undesirable sentiment. If you have behaved badly, repent, make what amends you can and address yourself to the task of behaving better next time. On no account brood over your wrongdoing. Rolling in the muck is not the best way of getting clean.”
― Aldous HuxleyBrave New World
• “Most human beings have an almost infinite capacity for taking things for granted.”
― Aldous HuxleyBrave New World
• “…most men and women will grow up to love their servitude and will never dream of revolution.”
― Aldous HuxleyBrave New World
• “…reality, however utopian, is something from which people feel the need of taking pretty frequent holidays….”
― Aldous HuxleyBrave New World
• “Actual happiness always looks pretty squalid in comparison with the overcompensations for misery. And, of course, stability isn’t nearly so spectacular as instability. And being contented has none of the glamour of a good fight against misfortune, none of the picturesqueness of a struggle with temptation, or a fatal overthrow by passion or doubt. Happiness is never grand.”
― Aldous HuxleyBrave New World
• “All right then,” said the savage defiantly, I’m claiming the right to be unhappy.”
“Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have syphilis and cancer; the right to have too little to eat, the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.”
There was a long silence.
“I claim them all,” said the Savage at last.”

― Aldous HuxleyBrave New World
• “If one’s different, one’s bound to be lonely.”
― Aldous HuxleyBrave New World

Animal Farm –

• “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.”
 George OrwellAnimal Farm
• “And remember also that in fighting against man we must not come to resemble him. Even when you have conquered him, do not adopt his vices.”
― George OrwellAnimal Farm
• “The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.”
― George OrwellAnimal Farm
• “The distinguishing mark of man is the hand, the instrument with which he does all his mischief.”
― George OrwellAnimal Farm
• “Comrades!’ he cried. ‘You do not imagine, I hope, that we pigs are doing this in a spirit of selfishness and privilege? Many of us actually dislike milk and apples. I dislike them myself. Our sole object in taking these things is to preserve our health. Milk and apples (this has been proved by Science, comrades) contain substances absolutely necessary to the well-being of a pig. We pigs are brainworkers. The whole management and organisation of this farm depend on us. Day and night we are watching over your welfare. It is for your sake that we drink the milk and eat those apples.”
 George OrwellAnimal Farm
• “I trust that every animal here appreciates the sacrifice that Comrade Napoleon has made in taking this extra labour upon himself. Do not imagine, comrades, that leadership is a pleasure! On the contrary, it is a deep and heavy responsibility. No one believes more firmly than Comrade Napoleon that all animals are equal. He would be only too happy to let you make your decisions for yourselves. But sometimes you might make the wrong decisions, comrades, and then where should we be?”
― George OrwellAnimal Farm

Lord of the Flies

• “Maybe there is a beast… maybe it’s only us.”
 William GoldingLord of the Flies
• “The thing is – fear can’t hurt you any more than a dream.”
― William GoldingLord of the Flies
• “The greatest ideas are the simplest.”
― William GoldingLord of the Flies
• “What are we? Humans? Or animals? Or savages?”
― William GoldingLord of the Flies
• “The world, that understandable and lawful world, was slipping away.”
― William GoldingLord of the Flies
• “They walked along, two continents of experience and feeling unable to communicate.”
― William GoldingLord of the Flies
• “I know there isn’t no beast—not with claws and all that, I mean—but I know there isn’t no fear, either.”
Piggy paused.
“Unless—”
Ralph moved restlessly.
“Unless what?”
“Unless we get frightened of people.”

 William GoldingLord of the Flies
• “He lost himself in a maze of thoughts that were rendered vague by his lack of words to express them. Frowning, he tried again.”
― William GoldingLord of the Flies
• “There have been so many interpretations of the story that I’m not going to choose between them. Make your own choice. They contradict each other, the various choices. The only choice that really matters, the only interpretation of the story, if you want one, is your own. Not your teacher’s, not your professor’s, not mine, not a critic’s, not some authority’s. The only thing that matters is, first, the experience of being in the story, moving through it. Then any interpretation you like. If it’s yours, then that’s the right one, because what’s in a book is not what an author thought he put into it, it’s what the reader gets out of it.”
 William GoldingLord of the Flies

The Gulag Archipelago 1918 – 1956 –

• “One man who stopped lying could bring down a tyranny.”
― Aleksandr SolzhenitsynThe Gulag Archipelago 1918–1956
• “If only it were all so simple! If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?”
― Aleksandr SolzhenitsynThe Gulag Archipelago 1918–1956
• “And even in the fever of epidemic arrests, when people leaving for work said farewell to their families every day, because they could not be certain they would return at night, even then almost no one tried to run away and only in rare cases did people commit suicide. And that was exactly what was required. A submissive sheep is a find for a wolf.”
 Aleksandr SolzhenitsynThe Gulag Archipelago 1918–1956
• “No, the old proverb does not lie: Look for the brave in prison, and the stupid among the political leaders!”
 Aleksandr SolzhenitsynThe Gulag Archipelago 1918–1956
• “Gradually it was disclosed to me that the line separating good and evil passes not through states, nor between classes, nor between political parties either — but right through every human heart — and through all human hearts. This line shifts. Inside us, it oscillates with the years. And even within hearts overwhelmed by evil, one small bridgehead of good is retained. And even in the best of all hearts, there remains … an unuprooted small corner of evil.

Since then I have come to understand the truth of all the religions of the world: They struggle with the evil inside a human being (inside every human being). It is impossible to expel evil from the world in its entirety, but it is possible to constrict it within each person.”

― Aleksandr I. SolzhenitsynThe Gulag Archipelago 1918–1956
• “Only those who decline to scramble up the career ladder are interesting as human beings. Nothing is more boring than a man with a career.”
― Aleksandr I. SolzhenitsynThe Gulag Archipelago 1918–1956
• “Thus it is that no cruelty whatsoever passes by without impact. Thus it is that we always pay dearly for chasing after what is cheap.”
― Aleksandr SolzhenitsynThe Gulag Archipelago 1918–1956
• “Own only what you can always carry with you: know languages, know countries, know people. Let your memory be your travel bag.”
― Aleksandr SolzhenitsynThe Gulag Archipelago 1918–1956
• “Bless you prison, bless you for being in my life. For there, lying upon the rotting prison straw, I came to realize that the object of life is not prosperity as we are made to believe, but the maturity of the human soul.”
― Aleksandr I. SolzhenitsynThe Gulag Archipelago 1918–1956
• “The most intense patriotism always flourishes in the rear.”
― Aleksandr SolzhenitsynThe Gulag Archipelago 1918–1956
• “… What about the main thing in life, all its riddles? If you want, I’ll spell it out for you right now. Do not pursue what is illusionary -property and position: all that is gained at the expense of your nerves decade after decade, and is confiscated in one fell night. Live with a steady superiority over life -don’t be afraid of misfortune, and do not yearn for happiness; it is, after all, all the same: the bitter doesn’t last forever, and the sweet never fills the cup to overflowing. It is enough if you don’t freeze in the cold and if thirst and hunger don’t claw at your insides. If your back isn’t broken, if your feet can walk, if both arms can bend, if both eyes can see, if both ears hear, then whom should you envy? And why? Our envy of others devours us most of all. Rub your eyes and purify your heart -and prize above all else in the world those who love you and who wish you well. Do not hurt them or scold them, and never part from any of them in anger; after all, you simply do not know: it may be your last act before your arrest, and that will be how you are imprinted on their memory.”
 Aleksandr SolzhenitsynThe Gulag Archipelago 1918–1956

1984 –

• “The best books… are those that tell you what you know already.”
― George Orwell
•“If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.”
― George Orwell1984
“Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.”
― George Orwell1984
“If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face—for ever.”
― George Orwell1984
•“Power is in tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in new shapes of your own choosing.”
― George Orwell1984
•“Now I will tell you the answer to my question. It is this. The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from the oligarchies of the past in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just around the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal. We are not like that. We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. Now you begin to understand me.”
― George Orwell1984
•“It’s a beautiful thing, the destruction of words.”
 George Orwell1984
•“If you loved someone, you loved him, and when you had nothing else to give, you still gave him love.”
― George Orwell1984
•“Perhaps a lunatic was simply a minority of one.”
 George Orwell1984
•“Being in a minority, even in a minority of one, did not make you mad. There was truth and there was untruth, and if you clung to the truth even against the whole world, you were not mad.”
 George Orwell1984

Closing Remarks…

Those with a proclivity and the ability to think critically will have much to ponder after reading this thesis. Unfortunately, those who can only operate from an emotional center may find some of the truths herein a bit difficult to reconcile. Which in itself is a perfect barometer to gauge how much one has, or has not been demoralized and subverted by the Marxist media (matrix) agenda.
I write to appeal to the intellectually curious. Not at all to pander to the base levels of human stimulus response reactionary existence. That said, I truly hope that the majority of my readership falls into the category of the former, and not the latter.

Many many people who were forced to endure the harsh oppressive nature of what true Marx-Communistic regimes were, and managed to escape them alive will be very quick to tell you that the U.S. is the best, most free, and most desired country to live in within the entirety of the known world. Oddly enough, the only people who do not feel this way are those who are fortunate enough to have been born there. Talk about a lack to gratitude. This is a clear example of a nation that has been completely demoralized and subverted.

With that, I leave you with a quote by the late, great Brother Yuri Bezmenov from the video clip found in Part Four. Fully aware of the truth therein. And also knowing that the response, or lack thereof will determine whether or not I continue on with this essay series.
People, the power is in your hands. Each of you will decide, and then vote with your actions, comments, re-posts, and donations whether or not my humble efforts are worth the time and effort I put into them.

Speaking about the effects of the Communist subversion and demoralization that would trick the U.S. population into hating (and thus destabilizing) their own country for the Russian and Chinese Communists.

“… they are contaminated. They are programmed to think and react to a certain pattern. You cannot change their mind even if you expose them to authentic information. Even if you prove to them that white is white and black is black. You still cannot change their basic perception, and illogical behavior.
In other words, in these people, the process of demoralization is complete and irreversible……”

  1. Best quote:
    “The thing is, fear can not hurt us anymore than a dream.”

    1. It seems that many didn’t get the memo. And in their fear they will do (and have done) much much damage.
      Thank you for taking the time out of your busy day to both read and comment.

  2. A well thought out and insightful read brother Amir. I personally find it notable the consideration you took to write this piece. Carefully analyzing the origins of Marxism and it’s subversive nature into creating a totalitarian godless society of mass-produced persons. I appreciate the extensive time and rigorous effort you share with your audience. I learned more than I have researched on this topic and ties well with what we are witnessing today. God bless brother Amir.

    1. Thank you Sir. I appreciate your appreciation. No good deed goes unpunished though it seems. As there are those who seem to completely miss the point. or are themselves angry Marxists with a vendetta coming out of the woodwork. It is apparent that people like these clearly DO NOT appreciate my efforts and seek to “discredit” me for whatever reason. But the saying goes that “you never catch flak unless you’re flying over the target.” If I am wrong, this is good. That means we have nothing to worry about, however if time and history prove me correct……?
      I at least stood up and cried out like Paul Revere while most did nothing. and got ignored and crapped on for my efforts. We shall see how it pans out.

  3. I enjoy reading your blog posts. Although I don’t agree with all your points, I appreciate the rigours research you do to support your arguments. Your writing helps me to clarify and also reconsider my own views. Keep up the good work.

    1. Thank you very much Jonathan. I appreciate you taking the time to read and comment on my work. Of course no two people will ever agree on everything. That said, I am pleased that there are at least a few things in my writings that resonate with you. I am also pleased that my style and form helps you in any way. Be well.
      R.A.A.
