      • The Difference Between Marxist Communism and Localized Socialism


        from freddietz96 / Added

        In this vid I veer from my usual topics, such as the parasitism of the US Federal Reserve and the perfidy of the 9/11 Commission Report, then delve into everyone’s least favorite topic: SOCIALISM. Yes, I am a socialist, albeit probably not the sort western society has so enjoyed making into its boogeymen for the past 90-odd years. Simply put, I’m not at all bothered by the thought of a paternalistic government of my fellow citizens, provided my fellow citizens are not themselves, corrupt. I don’t live for money, so the thought, “Oh, gee, now I’ll never get as rich as Bill Gates” isn’t something that keeps me awake at night. People ought to find some trade they love doing which benefits their surrounding community, then do that thing. One’s vocation ought to be something of a reward in itself, rather than the hope of some glorious largess that doesn’t really have anything to do with one’s forte or one’s community. However, there’s still a tremendous difference between myself and the traditional Marxist communist. The traditional Marxist communist doesn’t care about his surrounding community any more than the capitalistic corporate raider—he’s in it for power, pure and simple. He has no morality, nor wants any, so the first thing he disposes of is the people’s religion. Even so, he knows even secular societies dislike grossly unethical leaders, so the second thing the Marxist communist does is outlaw all competing political parties. Finally, with the fear there might be living remnants of the previous government who could regain popularity and topple him, he rounds up all remaining remnants and has them executed—then institutes a domestic spying agency to ensure no upstarts take their places. Rather, all I’m talking about is that a community has the right to determine what will and will not be traded within it, what it will and will not accept passing through its borders, what its workers will and will not have to endure to create its goods and services. And I’m not even talking about total socialism, but rather, merely socializing large businesses (those with a net worth over 5 or 6 million dollars) and leaving the rest as they are—even deregulating them at the federal level, and leaving their host states to democratically decide how they will be regulated (or if such regulation is even needful). It’s a partial socialism, but still socialism. If that makes me a monster, oh well—I’m a monster. And as for those of you still losing sleep over the prospect you’ll never get as rich as Bill Gates—ever try Ambien?

                These are the clips that didn't make the cut. Still a pretty good reason to switch. You'll notice that the folks at Apple never compromise when it comes to quality. Although, the PC performance feels a little affected -- if you know what I mean.
