Even a quick look would say that we have traveled a good way down the road to where we will truly be a Marxist Tyrannical state ruled by the Dictatorship of the Proletariat. Those who support the Collectivist movement have been taking us down that road mile by mile for at least the last one hundred years.
Those who are familiar with the principles of collectivism, and I do not mean a bumper sticker understanding, understand that several things have to be accomplished, according to Marx in order to reach that state where we are under complete control of the Dictatorship of the Proletariat so that we can then be transformed to a classless society that is totally conforming and totally equal, socially, politically, and financially, where all are free of personal financial responsibility because all will receive based on need and not effort, production, or contribution, and the state becomes god and controls all aspects of peoples lives and interests.
A major step toward this totally harmonious and classless society, according to Marx, was the ability of the state to confiscate the personal assets of each citizen. This concept is now embedded in the mind of the American citizen to where a person like Bernie Sanders is praised for his open declaration that recent tax cuts that are benefiting Americans must be reversed because it is essential that to reach the glorious state of tyranny, individuals cannot receive anything except that which is rightfully determined by the state to fulfill the needs of the individual.
The road to harmony must include dominance over the minds of the individual by the state or collective so all will conform to the ideology that the state is god and thus is always correct. We are told by the Collectivist today that the overwhelming enemy of the people is global warming, cooling, or change (you pick whichever because the science of the left can prove whichever you prefer). The real purpose of this climate story is a distorted rational for the purpose of distributing wealth from the evil imperialist states, primarily the United States, to the oppressed nations.
The collectivist is also demanding total conformity to the concept that the murder of unborn children is done for the purpose of protecting the health of women. The Marxist ideology has promoted the ideas that the individual life is expendable for the purpose of promoting the perceived good of the collective, the murder of unborn children is not in any way immoral since morality is totally relevant and based only on what promotes the collectivist movement, and the murder of the unborn child promotes the decline and eventual downfall of the family which is totally contradictory to the collectivist movement since all children who escape abortion are the property of the state and it is only the state who has the right to teach a child values of any kind.
The state must be the dominant force during the breakdown of the present society so that the new glorious classless society that is totally harmonious in its conformity and equality can be built. The “deep state,” about which we read, is the forerunner of the “Dictatorship of the Proletariat.” Today we see that “deep state” determined to upset a duly elected President who opposes and has exposed to some degree that “deep state.” The “deep state” now dominates both the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Both law enforcement pretenders violate rule of law by establishing their own rules and applying their rules or actual law they see as beneficial to their cause, differently depending on political and ideological leanings of the individuals. The fabricated investigations of the Trump administration versus the non-investigations of the recent Marxist regime is totally revealing that the DOJ and FBI have abandoned “rule of law” and are intentionally advancing the United States down that road to tyranny.
Sovereignty of the people has no applicability today. The members of the executive and the judicial branches of our government have assumed the role of the sovereign. Members of the executive branch determine what we the people have a right to know about the workings of the “deep state.” When our representatives exercise their constitutional duty of oversight, the members of the “deep state” assume the role of sovereign and tell the people’s representatives that they are willing to reveal only what the “people” have a right or purpose to know.
The judicial branch has extended their constitutionally mandated duty of issuing rulings on questions of law to becoming not only sovereign of all issues regarding the lives and interests of the individual, but also have assumed the role of the legislative branch to make law. The representatives of the American citizen have abdicated their role of being the only branch with the constitutional authority to make law and extended that sacred role to the judicial branch through rulings and the executive branch through regulations and executive orders.
How far have we traveled down “The Road To Tyranny?” Today the people are no longer sovereign but have assumed the role of servant to the dictates of the “state.” We are no longer a country with limited government but have a large all-powerful government that dictates the lives and the interests of the people. The all-powerful government has assumed the position that all assets are the property of the state and it is the function of the state to determine what the individual can keep so the state can redistribute based on their definition of need. The executive branch and the judicial branch have become the main branches for making law, a role that the constitution gave only to the legislative branch. A well-entrenched “deep state” or Dictatorship of the Proletariat exists within the government and is openly operating within the DOJ, the FBI, the IRS, and the EPA.
The Marxist/Progressive Party (Democrats) openly supports the suspension of the principles of the Declaration of Independence and The United States Constitution including the Bill of Rights. This same political party that supports in total the collectivist movement which takes us down the road to tyranny, also openly advocates the idea of total conformity to their ideology by supporting groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter who exist for the sole purpose of eliminating free speech, free assembly, free thought, and elimination of rule of law. This same faction of the American public openly advocates for virtually every principle endorsed by Marx and Engels to fundamentally transform a free and open society to a classless society that is totally conforming and totally equal. We have traveled quite a distance down that road to tyranny.
