Socialism | The ideology of the lazy

2 05 2010

“From each according to his ability, to each according to his need” is the mantra of the idle and lacklustre.  The ideal is supposed to be everyone gets a fair share but of course, like every system, needs administrators who by and large, are the very corruptibles who least deserve it.

Sure outright bloodthirsty capitalism isn’t so grand but neither is outright bloodthirsty communism.  Every Country that has handed over all ownership to the State soon find out they too are owned by the State.  At least with Capitalism we get to pick and choose (or duck and cover) our responsibilities.

This isn’t a rant about the failure of communism as a viable option, this is another little off-beat posting as I’m sick to the back-teeth of the charade we call deMOCKracy.  Doing my usual information-gathering activity on the biggest library on earth, I came across a funny story and a great example of Socialist ‘Vision versus Reality’.

And now the example of gross idioticracy the followers of the Communist Cult actually are.

“I witnessed a very odd spectacle over Christmas back in my (almost) home town of Newcastle (Tyne & Wear, Not Queensland). I came out of TKMax for a fag and noticed that at the base of Grey’s Monument there was a very small demonstration beginning to form. They were a revolutionary Communist group. I was approached by a rather attractive, middle-class, clearly well-educated girl who handed me a leaflet and tried to sell me a CD. We got talking while her (less than a dozen) mates were waving Colombian and Cuban flags and the inevitable poster of Comrade Che.

Well, my interlocutor was sincere, articulate and quite charming really. In retrospect that really disturbs me – it starts with an attractive girl being mildly flirtatious and ends up with gulags. She tried to sell me a CD of “revolutionary songs” which included an entry from (I kid ye not) the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade Male-Voice Choir. I turned down the option to purchase even though she assured me it had been fully tested. The whole operation was almost charmingly amateurish – from the home burnt CD with B&W photocopied cover to the fact that her revolutionary cadre were flying the Venezuelan flag upside down (which vaguely amused me). It was completely Wolfie Smith Peckham Popular Front Half-arsed. I honestly have never experienced a more geuine demonstration of the term “Useful Idiot” than the useful idiots demonstrating in the heart of the uber-capitalist shopping district of Newcastle during the start of the January sales.

This girl went on about how capitalism was enslaving people yet seemed oblivious to the shoppers going about their business in the middle of one of the most attractive city centres in England (as a Geordie I may be slightly biased but there is still some wonderful C18th architecture in Newcastle which was not flattened by the socialist T Dan Smith), a city-centre built entirely by capitalism.

It was a strange interlude made all the stranger by the fact that she admitted that the (incorrectly hung) Venezuelan flags were a bit out of date because apparently Chavez has added an extra star recently and the Geordie Commies hadn’t yet managed to secure the purchase of the new flag on EBay. I said, isn’t Ebay a little capitalist? She said, “Well yes but at least our Cuban flag is really from Cuba and therefore a proper socialist flag”. I dunno whether it was a “socialist” flag or not. It looked like Nylon to me.

As I said, it was all very odd. She seemed a really nice girl. She seemed so genuinely to want to fight injustice and make the world a better place. Well, I guess she’s still young and she might learn. Except one thing makes me think she might not. One think makes me think she suffers from a bizarre inability to see truth and reason. In my conversation with this girl she frequently spoke about “the people” but saw no contradiction between that and her obvious atavistic hero-worship of Fidel, Kim and Chavez.

How can a truly socialist system be based upon such blatant idolatry? How can a People’s Democratic Republic be run by a “President for Life”? What kind of mind can see these two things as being compatible? I mean, seriously, doesn’t a government either have to be for the people, of the people and by the people or else be a despotic clique or the fiefdom of a quasi-divine Dear Leader who is worshipped like a God by atheists?

Or, in short, don’t you have to be a couple of sandwiches short of a picnic in order to be a socialist?

I passed by Grey’s Monument a couple of times later that day while shopping. The first time, they were doing “Geordie Rap” about globalisation (which was just as dreadful as it sounds – think of the kind of sounds Ant & Dec would make if they were being given electric shocks to the genitals) and the second time they’d buggered off – but then the wind had got up a bit by then and it was raining.”

Someone should tell Communists and Socialist that the war is over.  Damn, if us Nationalists are beaten with the Nazi yardstick, how the heck can an ideology that starved, shot and enslaved to death hundreds of millions of souls in multiple nations across the globe be applauded so?

The world is an ass.
