Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) City Council candidate in Chicago Ugo Okere, paraphrases Marx from the Communist Manifesto and the German Ideology as he proclaims a great idea: to have socialism “control…every single facet of [your] life.”
Communism is for us not a state of affairs which is to be established, an ideal to which reality [will] have to adjust itself. We call communism the real movement which abolishes the present state of things. The conditions of this movement result from the premises now in existence. Marx, German Ideology
In capitalist society we have a democracy that is curtailed, wretched, false, a democracy only for the rich, for the minority. The dictatorship of the proletariat, the period of transition to communism, will for the first time create democracy for the people, for the majority, along with the necessary suppression of the exploiters, of the minority. VLADIMIR LENIN
Marx and Lenin promised that all power would be with the people. All oppression from the employers and job creators would be removed. The people would be in total control and freedom and happiness would exist for all. Yes, socialism would control every facet of your life.
Rosseau explained that all will be wonderful when each person surrenders all their rights to the whole community (state) because when each person gives themselves entirely, then the same condition exists for all so now no one has an interest in making it burdensome for others. This is the premise of collectivism (Marxism, communism, socialism, progressive, Democrat, - all virtually the same).
What Okere said was the promise of Marx, Lenin, Mao, Castro, and Chavez; it is the promise of all collectivists including Obama, Holder, Jarrett, Sanders, AOC, and all comrades.
Democratic Socialism is the new euphemism for collectivism (Marxism, communism, socialism, progressive, Democrat – all virtually the same).
Okere specifically stated:
“Democratic socialism, to me, is about democratic control of every single facet of our life. Government is led by the people, not by big corporations, not by multibillionaires, and working people actually have control over who we elect to be our politicians, over how elections work, and over how our government is structured. People have the power.”
“Democratic socialism even extends to our relationships and how we treat each other. [It looks] at the world through a socialist-feminist lens, in how we treat people who are black, who are brown, who are femme, who are non-binary, who are gender-nonconforming, and who are working class.”
“To me, we’ll have achieved democratic socialism not when there is no conflict in the world, but when our societies are not governed based on power but are governed based on the mutual understanding that everybody deserves a decent and quality life.” (one of their reasons for open borders)
“One part of the Left wants to reform the existing society that we have now. They want to make changes that will make life easier, that will make life not so bad. But there’s another side of the Left that wants to radically transform the way the world works — not simply say that we can make some changes here and there and that things will be alright.” (one of the arguments between the Bolsheviks and the Mensheviks)
To bring about this state advocated by the collectivist, it is necessary that all sing from the songbook. This is why there is this massive effort to limit free speech by the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) movement by preventing opposing speech on college campuses, in grade and high schools, and throughout society. The Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) are following the dictate of Lenin including the lying and shouting.
I am bound to accord you, in the name of free speech, the full right to shout, lie and write to your heart's content. But you are bound to grant me, in the name of freedom of association, the right to enter into, or withdraw from, association with people advocating this or that view. The party is a voluntary association, which would inevitably break up, first ideologically and then physically, if it did not cleanse itself of people advocating anti-party views. VLADIMIR LENIN
