Earlier members of the Communist Party of the United States of America, such as Frank Marshall Davis who mentored Barack Obama, always referred to themselves as progressives as they were told by the Comintern to do. It makes no difference what they called themselves because the followed the Communist Party line as it was dictated at that time by Joseph Stalin.
This has been discussed in previous writings but is worth saying again. Collectivism is the opposite of Individualism. Individualism is the idea that the individual’s life belongs to him and that he has an inalienable right to live it as he sees fit, to act on his own judgment, to keep and use the product of his effort, and to pursue the values of his choosing. It’s the idea that the individual is sovereign, an end in himself, and the fundamental unit of moral concern. This is the ideal that the American Founders set forth and sought to establish when they drafted the Declaration and the Constitution and created a country in which the individual’s rights to life, liberty, property, and the pursuit of happiness were to be recognized and protected.
Collectivism is the idea that the individual’s life belongs not to him but to the group or society of which he is merely a part, that he has no rights, and that he must sacrifice his values and goals for the group’s “greater good.” According to collectivism, the group or society is the basic unit of moral concern, and the individual is of value only insofar as he serves the group. As one advocate of this idea puts it: “Man has no rights except those which society permits him to enjoy. From the day of his birth until the day of his death society allows him to enjoy certain so-called rights and deprives him of others; not . . . because society desires especially to favor or oppress the individual, but because its own preservation, welfare, and happiness are the prime considerations.”
Communism and socialism are the advanced forms of collectivism. Karl Marx outlined collectivism and in “The Communist Manifesto,” Marx and Engels drew the road map that collectivists must follow to reach the glorious state for which all collectivists strive; a fair and just classless society that is totally conforming and totally equal.
Ro Khanna, a Representative from the 17th congressional district in California, the silicon valley, is a collectivist and advocates that the United States must follow the steps to the classless society as defined by Marx, those steps that are outlined in the collectivists gospel, “The Communist Manifesto.”
Khanna stepped up criticism of Feinstein, casting her as out of step with California voters for decades and lambasting her for not jumping to support single-payer healthcare or free college tuition, which have become current progressive hallmarks. These have always been hallmarks of collectivists. Lenin immediately instituted single-payer healthcare. Lenin said control of the healthcare of people is critical to the control of people. Bernie Sanders along with many other collectivists in congress are making single-payer healthcare a major issue. Their Comrade Barack Obama did what the Communist Party of the United States had advocated for decades, and that was to pass a national law that would eventually bring single-payer healthcare to the United States. Diane Feinstein has not jumped on this train, and therefore she is out of step with Barack Obama, Ro Khanna, and their comrades.
Marx and Engels said free education was a necessary and critical step in the transformation to a fair and just classless society that is totally conforming and totally equal, thus a perfect collectivist society. Marx and Engels understood, as did Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Castro, Tito, and now Obama, Sanders, Perez, Ellison, and Khanna, that free education is a key step to indoctrinating a society and bring about a totally conforming society. This is why the family must be destroyed and why freedom of speech must be eliminated. The above Comrades understand that total conformity is critical to their fair and just classless society. Diane Feinstein has not jumped on this train that leads to total conformity, and thus she is out of step with the collectivists (communists, socialists, progressives and Marxists.) Khanna said that since Feinstein will not conform to “The Communist Manifesto” and what would have been the dictates from the Comintern (had not collectivism failed so badly in Europe and other parts of the world) she must be eliminated.
Diane Feinstein is declared to be out of step with the Progressive movement. Diane Feinstein has always been a liberal and represented the Democrat Party of California and the United States in the 1980’s and some of the 1990’s. As the philosophy of Feinstein has remained the same, the Democrat party of California and the United States has moved even more to the collectivist philosophy. It is a collectivist movement that is identical to the Communist Party of the United States of America that was the arm of the Comintern (Communist International) in the United States.
And this my Freedom Loving Americans is what has transpired. Yes, the fundamental transformation of the United States as predicted by Marx, begun by Lenin, and greatly advanced by Franklin Roosevelt and Barack Obama is alive and well and demanding total conformity to the demands of the party, even by liberals like Diane Feinstein.
