IGNORANCE OF WHAT COLLECTIVISM (MARXISM, COMMUNISM, SOCIALISM, PROGRESSIVE, DEMOCRAT – ALL VIRTUALLY THE SAME) REALLY IS BY THOSE ON THE RIGHT IS DAMAGINGRead Now
We on the right (correct side of history) must understand the evil that collectivism is. We on the right (correct side of history) must also understand the differences between collectivism and individualism. Many times, those who have a megaphone give incorrect information and this is damaging to the cause of fighting the evil that is permeating our country. Some years ago, Bill O’Reilly, a person who has made many incorrect statements, stated that George Soros could not be a Communist because he made all of his money in a capitalist world. It is true that Soros made his money in a capitalist world, but you cannot make money in a socialist world unless you are an elite within the ranks of government.
Of course, George Soros is Collectivist (Marxist, communist, socialist, progressive, Democrat, - all virtually the same). It is collectivist movements that Soros supports and funds. To say the Soros is not a Marxist is to say the Friedrich Engels was not a Marxist. Engels was a very wealthy man. Engels was a part owner of Ermen and Engels, a manufacture of sewing threads. He belonged to private clubs and lived a very comfortable life. He also wrote the Communist Manifesto with Karl Marx, he proofed and edited Das Kapital while writing Das Kapital II and III from Marx’s notes. Yes, Engels made his money in the world of capitalism but was a collectivist, and yes O’Reilly Soros made his money in a the world of capitalism but he is a collectivist.
Now we have "Fox & Friends" weekend co-host Pete Hegseth said that Ocasio-Cortez's plan to cap higher-level staff incomes in order to pay every member of her staff an annual salary of at least $52,000 was an example of communism and socialism.”
And this is why it is so critical we on the right (the correct side of history) know and understand about what we are speaking. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez fired back at Fox News over its criticism that her planned staff salaries amounted to "socialism and communism on display," saying that the GOP is "disconnected."
"The GOP is so disconnected from the basic idea that people should be paid enough to live that Fox actually thinks me paying a living wage in my office is 'communism,'" AOC tweeted.
"So, the next time GOP screams 'socialist,' know that’s their go-to attack for any common-sense, humane policy," AOC continued.
AOC is correct and Hegseth was wrong. Individualism champions the rights of the individual. If any employer wishes to pay the same wage to all of those they employ, and those who are employed are willing to accept it, then that is their right. That is freedom of the employer and the employee. That is freedom and independence. That is individualism.
Is in when the state or the community demands and regulates what the employer must pay and what the employee must receive that collectivism (Marxism, communism, socialism, progressive, Democrat - all virtually the same) occurs. Hegseth is correct that AOC is employing a socialist type philosophy, but individualism strongly supports her individualist right to make her own decisions without outside coercion by the state or community. A mandated minimum wage by the state or collective is socialistic.
What O’Reilly and Hegseth have done by giving incorrect and unclear information is to give credence to AOC’s claim that the next time GOP screams 'socialist,' know that’s their go-to attack for any common-sense, humane policy.
