After you have read this article, take a long hard look at Australian society today. Think about the points made in this article and ask yourself if you see any similarities.
If you do, you have just discovered the root cause of the many problems we face today. Welcome to the Socialist Republic of Australia.
Since Australian schools do a terrible job of teaching history and economics these days, it’s our job to explain how socialism slowly, insidiously eats away at the core of any society. Educated people the world over that know their history will describe socialism as at best crazy and unworkable, at worst simply evil.
History shows us that it is completely unworldly, unworkable and it always results in a reduced quality of life. The only ones who support it have always been those seeking power, those that are too young and foolish to understand its infinite failings, those who are lazy or mentally defective in some way, the drug people and long term unemployed who devote their lives to destroying the public good in an irrational attempt to bite the hand that feeds them.
Capitalism versus socialism what’s the difference?
Under socialism, in order to provide for everybody, a central state confiscates the product of peoples labour so it can be equally distributed. This is where the real difference between socialism and capitalism comes into play; under socialism if you refuse to turn over the product of your labour to the state they will take it for “the greater good.”
Socialism is not a voluntary economic system but one based on the act of theft. Another aspect of socialism that is necessary it to promote its demented ideology is the idea of a new “socialist man.” What they don’t say is that this ideal “man” is actually an obedient drone/slave who obeys the state implicitly. These deluded people will actually attack anyone who threatens their enslavement.
Proponents of socialism believe people must be educated in order for a socialism utopia to form and this education is often the source of violence in socialist countries. Those who refuse to cooperate and play by the state’s rules are usually shipped off to re-education or labour camps; these camps are exactly the same thing.
On the other hand capitalism works with our current society without the need to enforce education on the populace.
Capitalism vs. Socialism is in reality a debate between a free and voluntary society and a forced society of slaves. The victims of socialism are usually those who dissented against the state or tried to maintain the product of their labour by concealing it from the state’s agents. Many Ukrainian farmers were labelled enemies of the state and hauled away because they attempted to conceal grain for their sustenance. Those farmers were murdered by the state because they refused to turn over what was rightfully theirs; in other words the state murdered them to facilitate the State-enforced robbery. When somebody kills another while performing an act of theft we call it murder. Therefore by definition socialism is robbery and murder.
Under capitalism, all transactions are voluntary, whereas transactions under socialism are performed through coercion.
Are communism, socialism, and liberalism the same thing?
Yes. Communism, socialism, and liberalism are definitely the same thing. They’re all closely related branches of the same tree.
Since socialism has failed so often its adherents of every stripe bend over backwards to disassociate themselves from the many disasters created by their ideology. Still, a turd by any other name is still a turd.
Socialism is particularly dangerous because it’s so perfectly suited for the ignorance of the modern era. It’s the ultimate “miracle” product: it’s “nice,” it’s “fair,” it’ll make you feel good about yourself, it’ll “help” people who “deserve it” by taking things away from people who “have so much” they’ll barely miss it.
All this sounds wonderful. But, like all products with sleazy salesmen and hidden track records, the promises socialism makes are all empty.
How is socialism bad for the economy?
It kills economic growth: Strong economic growth is what produces jobs, economic and social growth and a better standard of living for everyone, including the poor and middle class.
Socialism strangles economic growth in the crib by penalizing success and rewarding failure.
When you loot the successful people in a society to give it to the less successful you quite naturally reduce the number of successful people and encourage more people to fail. This leads to a never-ending cycle. The more people in need there are, the more the successful must be penalized to pay for them. The more the successful are penalized, the fewer successful people there are. This causes wealth to concentrate in fewer hands, the economy slows down, and even more people then need help. It goes on and on until you get a slow economy that can’t produce enough tax revenue to sustain itself. That’s exactly what killed the Soviet Union, and today it is killing Greece, Australia, the United States and most of Western Europe; all on exactly the same path.
Does Socialism/Communism allow free speech?
No, it stifles free speech because the ideology requires protection, propaganda, intimidation, and darkness to survive. Socialism can’t survive honest, informed debate about its merits among people who are free to choose or reject it, because it cannot defend itself. Therefore it cannot ever survive the conversation.
For proof of this just ask; Why is there ridiculous government propaganda in nations like North Korea? Why are most schools, papers, and colleges run by liberals in the United States? Why do liberals often try to disrupt conservative speakers on college campuses? Why are there such extreme speech codes in Canada that it practically makes some conservative arguments illegal? Why does speaking out against the government risk imprisonment in China and the old Soviet Union? And lately, why has the Australian government just passed a law that will arrest anyone speaking out for freedom?
Does Socialism/Communism allow any freedom at all?
Freedom and socialism do not go together any more than oil and water. The more socialism you have, the less freedom you have, because socialism can’t survive if people are free to choose whether they want socialism or not.
People who are free to say what they want will criticize socialism’s many failures. Areas that aren’t tightly controlled will move towards the free exchange of ideas and goods, not socialism. So, socialism requires a massive bureaucracy that almost inevitably grows. As government grows, it inevitably becomes more centralized, more distant from the people and ultimately more menacing.
Socialists support gay marriage while at the same time trying to islamise Australia, insisting the ideals can coexist. They claim that mass immigration will help grow the economy, but in truth those of us born here who have spent our lives working hard are forced to pay for it. The government steals our taxes to lavish on these freeloaders who do not respect or even understand our culture, morals, or laws. Then the liberals call us racist when we object or insist that we all live under our laws. But the socialists demand we accept other forms of law that are illegal under our last, such as bigamy, suppressing freedom of speech to protect a religious ideology, etc. Why would they do this?
Socialism is all about turning people against each other. It has to be. After all, if you believe in controlling people’s lives, the people who don’t wish to be controlled need to be vilified. If you believe in confiscating the wealth of successful people who won’t give it up willingly, then others must be convinced they’re terrible human beings who deserve to be punished. “Victim” classes must be created for the socialists to defend because if everyone is responsible for themselves, what need is there for the socialist? Eventually, those who depend on government for their livelihood and those that the government smears and loots to pay them off come to hate each other.
Socialists always ride roughshod over due process and basic considerations of fairness when they think they can get away with it. For them the ends always justify the means. That is precisely how their predecessors came to create the gulag.
One of the reasons so many socialist nations are wracked with violent protests and revolutions is because when the rule of law is abandoned, only outlaws have any hope of receiving justice.
Socialists believe that, “All men are equal, but some men are more equal than others.”
For a socialist, the overriding concern is always promoting socialism. So in their eyes due process under our law, rules and regulations mean different things for different people.
Who do they shout fascist at patriots and anyone else that disagrees with them?
Put simply, in the confused minds of the lunatic Socialists / ANTIFA a connection has been formed between our loyalty to our flag, country and the Australian way of life and the failed ideals of fascism that had completely disappeared before the end of WW2.
This connection was not made by accident, It has been planted in the minds of the young who are foolish enough to follow them by the socialist leaders themselves.
By confusing our youth, getting them to think that loving our country is a crime, they deliberately work to turn our youngsters into unthinking, obedient slaves of the Socialist ideology. Once that happens it’s game over for most of them, unless they start thinking for themselves.
The best cure for Socialism is to actually live in a Socialist state. It invariably sows the seeds of its own destruction in the end, as we are seeing today right here in Australia.
