Obama and the Democrats have to get through their thick skull that Karl Marx’s ideas are dead. The Collapse of Communism proved that and now it is their turn with socialism that really is the same thing – the people are incapable to spending their own money so government should do it for them. Government is infested with lawyers – not economists. Leave the world alone and it would be a better place.
– – Martin Armstrong
In 1948, Norman M. Thomas, Leader of the US Socialist Party opined that “The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism, but under the name of ‘liberalism’, they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program until one day America will be a socialist nation without knowing it happened.”
Political Correctness (PC) is the outcome of a distinctive ‘turn’ in Leftist politics, which became obvious in the mid-1960s. PC is a subjective list put together by the few to rule the many – a list of things one must think, say, or do. It affronts the right of the individual to establish his or her own beliefs. In the 20th century, the contemporary use of the phrase “Politically Correctness” dates from the dogmatic application of Stalinist doctrine, debated between formal Communists and Socialists, during the middle of the 20th century. Peter Drucker noted that, until recently, only Nazis and Stalinists spoke of “political correctness.” It is indeed a purely totalitarian concept. It asserts the fight of those in power to suppress all but the party line’s official lies.
