    “You see this kind of argument from Marxists all the time. You could destroy entire countries with mass immigration, but if one refugee child suffered, then too bad, too sad. You must do it.”

    You seem to be countering by making a utilitarian argument, “the greatest good for the greatest number”. This also has problems.

    I wouldn’t get too wrapped up by the Marxist anecdotal arguments. It not like they are the only ones using them. They are just a debating tactic.

    Whether government should use policy X or instead policy Y is not the real question. The real question is why should they be sticking their nose in it at all? Trump’s wall only becomes “necessary” because people have given those in government a pass on controlling the entire society. If there was no welfare, no government looting and bestowing of favors, no wall would be needed. You are treating a symptom, not the cause. You are saying in effect, “Welfare and socialism for me, but not for thee.”

      Enh, Marxists are fun to debate. Just point out how many people die each year in bathtub/shower slip-and-falls, or from aspirin overdoses. “We have to ban them immediately, because if even one life can be saved….”

      Then point out how many people choke on food and drown in water. “We have to ban them immediately, because if even one life can be saved….”

      It’s easy and to out-Left almost any Leftist.

    True dat !

  3. Outstanding point, and without overexplaining it.

  4. What he’s talking about in this commentary is the exact same thing that Garet Garrett talked about way back in 1938 in “The Revolution Was”

    Quote:

    There are those who still think they are holding the pass against a revolution that may be coming up the road. But they are gazing in the wrong direction. The revolution is behind them. It went by in the Night of Depression, singing songs to freedom.

    There are those who have never ceased to say very earnestly, “Something is going to happen to the American form of government if we don’t watch out.” These were the innocent disarmers. Their trust was in words. They had forgotten their Aristotle. More than 2,000 years ago he wrote of what can happen within the form, when “one thing takes the place of another, so that the ancient laws will remain, while the power will be in the hands of those who have brought about revolution in the state.”

    Worse outwitted were those who kept trying to make sense of the New Deal from the point of view of all that was implicit in the American scheme, charging it therefore with contradiction, fallacy, economic ignorance, and general incompetence to govern.

    But it could not be so embarrassed, and all that line was wasted, because, in the first place, it never intended to make that kind of sense, and secondly, it took off from nothing that was implicit in the American scheme.

    It took off from a revolutionary base. The design was European. Regarded from the point of view of revolutionary technique, it made perfect sense. Its meaning was revolutionary and it had no other. For what it meant to do, it was from the beginning consistent in principle, resourceful, intelligent, masterly in workmanship, and it made not one mistake.

    So it was that a revolution took place within the form. Like the hagfish, the New Deal entered the old form and devoured its meaning from within. The revolutionaries were inside; the defenders were outside. A government that had been supported by the people and so controlled by the people became one that supported the people and so controlled them. Much of it is irreversible. That is true because habits of dependence are much easier to form than to break. Once the government, on ground of public policy, has assumed the responsibility to provide people with buying power when they are in want of it, or when they are unable to provide themselves with enough of it, according to a minimum proclaimed by government, it will never be the same again.

    Here is the money quote:

    SO IT WAS THAT A REVOLUTION TOOK PLACE WITHIN THE FORM.

    And yet I’ve been listening to “conservatives” my entire life say stupid shit like: “The commies are going to take over if we’re not careful”

    They already did you dumbasses.

    Pay attention.

    • Yep. Democracy is communism.

      As soon as propertyless niggers can vote, there is no more private property. Think about it.

      The government owns everything.

  5. Its a nice piece but too hung up on labels. Could Kelloggs be marxist? Sure. How about Chrysler? Why not? NAZIs were marxists. The point is labels serve those that use them not the observer. The most distinct ID for a marxist is THIEF. It covers all the brands, and Ideologies.

  6. All I know is I hate all this Marxist bullshit, totally and forever, and I want it to end. Anybody care to take charge, and get us organized for some REAL push back? No? Is all we are ever going to be is a debating society, while the Marxists take it all? Anybody notice which side is winning? We have lots of nice words, and good expression of value. Is there anyone with Leadership out there, some one who knows what Discipline is?

    • The Jew owns the money and the legal system and funds the left. We have to go to work.

    • “…while the Marxists take it all?”

      But they don’t take it, except very rarely. No doubt they’re willing to take it, but the fact is that the vast majority of loot is willingly given to them. It’s important because the people willingly giving it are the same people you hope will one day forcefully defend themselves against those same Marxists.

      Considering what we know and can see, this is plainly a misplaced hope. That doesn’t mean victory and liberty can’t happen, but it does mean they won’t happen that way.

      It’s a tough challenge alright; prolly gotta think outside the box.

    How was the alien in the Edgar Suit neutralized? Do not even attempt to debate or reason with these Edgar Suit people. Go to their functions. Meet them. “Mug and Number” them just like Rocco Lampone in THE GODFATHER. Be charming. Act concerned. Befriend them. Buy them coffee. Draw them out in conversations. Find out where they live and what they drive. Plan/act accordingly.
    Just keep remembering, my friends. It has not really started yet. Until the Leviathan is totally occupied with the fallout from the economic correction, lack of freebies, and other social unpleasantness, you cannot make any serious moves. The full force of the FEDGOV Orc establishment will cloud up and rain on your parade. Plan and act with great care, surreptitiousness, and guile. Time is on our side if we use it wisely. Bleib ubrig.

    Funny, well probably not but none the less..
    I was driving and thought, (really no bullshit) when the f did we loose the country. Feeling well partly to blame since at some point I should have bitched whined and complained done something, and well I could not come up with a moment, day etc. that said hey dumb-ass you did this.

    Clearly we missed nothing, this mess was our inheritance, from other generations, way on back to when horses and men were necessary for the day. I’d say, Fed Res Act was pretty much the day, but why digress, it took 100 plus years to see the full shit bagger show, that has left us. The cry of Gold backed bla bla bla, “partiot fuckin pleez” unless there is a planetoid of gold that shit wont fly at this point…

    The only way, this “Cool with Marx shit” ends is in our our next gen (NXGen Pat) no I am not trying to start a thing, but fux a dux, Gen X was marginalized early, and the Snowflake gen well is lost, I started early too teach mine that this is all shit.

    I Explain the Marxist BS, go arm yourself and buy the Naked Capitalist and Naked Communist, AND EVERY FRIKIN time I see the BS lie, (granted it starts to become EZ) point it out. All though, tell them, you will have to live in this mess, and teach them that, and how to WHEN THEY CAN pass down the light of the lie to their kids if I am gone.

    on the WRSA – We as folks here have to without a doubt realize, we are nothing to the end other than a rock in a stream, and that is it.

    The fact a stream can be diverted over time is our mission, the fact that we got a big’ole plate of WTF? Does not mean the plate must be passed, we can AND SHOULD set rocks in the path of the sedition of the US Constitution.

    QQ – Have you given a copy of or shown a copy of the two documents that matter – The US Constitution AND the Declaration of Independence? Now granted it will start some inhouse BS but as a parent you can deal with it, it is now our part to start the long game of unfucking the mess we were given.
    PRAY HARD YOU ARE GIVEN THE TIME AND GUTZ TO SEE THIS GARDEN REPLANTED.

    This is not local any more, it is not regional and sure as shit not state or federal, it is in the heart and them phuktards cannot stop that.
    Some dumb-ass you don’t know,
