According to Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation More than a third of millennials polled approve of communism, or Marxism.
According to Benjamin Valentino, Associate Professor of Government at Dartmouth College, the number of deaths attributed to communism is at least 110 million in the last 100 years. Guess we can look forward to the murder of millions when the millennials take power.
Karl Marx, the father of communism, was a follower of G.W.F. Hegel. who asserted that “the State is the Divine Idea as it exists on earth”.
Do we really want to make the state god?
Marx and the millennials that worship him fail to recognize the inherent danger of making the state god.
People assert that Marx was a humanitarian, but Marx’s humanitarian ideals did nothing to deter Lenin from decreeing that “liberty is so precious that it must be rationed.”
Marxists assert that vastly increasing government power is the key to liberating humanity.
But all-powerful government will always become an end into itself.
In 1932, Soviet dictator Josef Stalin instituted the death penalty for any theft of government property. The end result was that while millions were starving due to the collectivization of farms, children poaching a few ears of corn could be shot.
Is that what we have to look forward to? That is ALWAYS what happens under Marxism.
There is and has not been a single Marxist government that respects human rights.
Marxist ideals continue to appeal to young ignorant social justice warriors, who spout such stupidity as “from each according to his ability, to each according to his need.” Who determines “need”? The omniscient, benevolent god-state?
Marxism promises an end the “class struggle” but does so by subjugating everyone to the almighty god-state.
By abolishing private property you leave the people hostage to petty, power mad government officials who punish anyone who fails to pander to the state’s dictates.
Marxism promises utopia, but instead results in hell on earth.
The results of Marx’s philosophy always leads to totalitarianism. While it is true that Marx never intended for his doctrines to spur perpetual dread in hundreds of millions of victims. But it was criminally naive to expect happy results from any system that bestows god like power to the state. Any philosophy that begins by idealizing government will end by idealizing subjugation.
Marxism will always devolve to treating humans as serfs, bound to endlessly submit and obey their government overlords. And anyone who tries to escape will be treated as if they are stealing government property.
Marx and his ideals are a blight on humanity, and anyone who looks up to him is utterly ignorant.
