Socialism enslaves people just like we have witnessed throughout the world for years with other forms of slavery. Great Britain was a proponent of slavery and prohibited the Northern colonies from outlawing slavery. After the colonies declared their independence, many of the Northern Colonies did outlaw slavery while those in the South continued the practice that has existed from the beginning time to this very day. Slavery has always been practiced in the Muslim world and is still practiced today. People are bought and sold with many of the young girls and boys being bought and sold for sexual purposes.
Slavery is the condition in which one person is owned as property by another and is under the owner's control, especially in involuntary servitude. A broader definition of slavery would be the demand for the submission of one to the dominating influence of another.
The common definition of socialism is any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods. Understand that the most important means of production and distribution in any society is people. Socialism requires the submission of people, the most important means of production and distribution, to the dominating influence of the collective or the state.
We must always remember that socialism is collectivism and collectivism is simply an all-encompassing term for Marxism, communism, socialism, progressive, Democrat, which are all virtually the same. The common and essential element for all of these is the requirement that all individuals subjugate their will, desires, and ambitions to the demands and requirements of the state or the collective.
Karl Marx stated that his society would be a classless society. He explained that in a classless society all would conform to one doctrine or all would agree on all issues, and all would be equal, primarily economically, but also socially. The fundamental principle of the Socialist classless society was that all would work and produce to the best of their abilities and the productive results would be divided according to the will of the state with each receiving based on their needs. In the example Marx used in the Critique of the Gotha program, the state was included in each, but the state would receive first and what was left would go to the people.
In the United States today, the divide is between those who are advocating for socialism and those who are advocating for the principles upon which our nation was founded which is in a single descriptive term, individualism. Individualism is when people are free and encouraged to dream big and then strive for those dreams.
Those who are advocating for socialism, which includes groups such as Antifa, BLM, The Democrat Party, and other groups on the left are also saying they oppose slavery and wish to punish those who in any way had anything to do with slavery in early America. Yes, they are saying our laws and ideas should apply on an ex post facto basis.
These same socialist are proclaiming their ideas against slavery, not because they oppose slavery, but because they believe they can use the argument to bring about socialism (collectivism) which historically has been the most damaging and brutal form of slavery imposed on people. Under the system of socialism, more people have died and suffered from starvation, from the ravishes of poverty, from the enforcement of conformity and equality by the state, than any other form of governance be it as a state or as an elite privileged ruler under the state.
I implore all Freedom Loving Americans to learn and understand the real history of the United States and why our wise and flawed founders instituted such a unique nation. I also implore you to understand the evil that is collectivism and how and why it always destroys. Individualism has always built and advanced society for all while collectivism has always destroyed and brought about poverty and misery for the masses. This is a fact and just as gravity always works so does the truism that individualism always builds, and collectivism always destroys.
When you understand this, you can begin to be an effective part of the irate and tireless group that is keen on “Setting Brushfires of Freedom” by asking questions of those who would claim they support socialism and oppose slavery or any form thereof.
